Wales calling

Ok so I didn't quite get the predictions right but I was close !!!

Five Live debut went well (Ok again, Five Live Extra's coverage of Cardiff v Blackpool) Cardiff have one heck of a nice stadium and everything is set up for them to go into the Premiership, and after their last few years of heartache I really hope that they make it, but on the day Blackpool were excellent. To be more precise in the last twenty minutes Blackpool were excellent. If you ever want to see an example of a team with attacking intentions then watch Blackpool. Three players left up front most of the time, against a Cardiff team that pulled every single player back for corners, something had to give and in the end it did, three quick goals and it was good night Vienna.
Whilst I was outside the City stadium I had to send Chris Todd a quick photo of me outside Wales' theatre of dreams, after all he is a massive Swansea fan!!!!!! My pleasure Toddy.
As a footballer, and ex footballer, you do tend to lose touch with old team mates but the odd text or call here and there and it's as if you have never been away, so MASSIVE 'Big up' to all those lads out there who miss me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Forgot to say well done to the big ginger freak Chris Robertson who has moved to Preston. He was always asking me when he would get his move and I told him that once he had done his job at Torquay I would get him a move, and the time was right for him, so good luck to 'Robbo'. God knows how he is coping without his little mucker though, although rumour has it he tried to smuggle Danny to his new club in his mock Louis Vitton suitcase!!!!

Tough at the top

Holy macaroni !! so much has gone on, football matches obviously , nights out unusually, and survival definitely.
I would hazard a guess that most people now think that Man City have blown it, I am not sure that is the case but after so many years in the shadow of United, it would be great if they came through and took the title (Sorry for trying to be neutral here), but looking at the recent form book it is going to very tough to break the dominance of the main three or four clubs. I don't think Chelsea can do it, I'm not sure Arsenal can, and Liverpool and Tottenham are big maybe's, so that leaves just one club, and we all know who they are don't we.......

Closer to home and it's simple, three clubs need points for survival and the other need them for promotion. I can honestly see all of those scenarios happening, and wouldn't that be great, but hey what do I know!!

I did watch the second half of Torquay v Northampton last Saturday and in the half I saw Torquay were really, really good, I am a bit worried about my other old club though in Northampton, bodies needed, belief needed, points needed, fingers crossed.

At home and things are.....on lock down.

Hope all is well
