  1. Thankfully the pubs I've watched the Wales games in have all been showing the S4C broadcast rather than BBC1's. Not sure I could abide Robbie Savage to be fair. That could have been 3 or 4-0 couldn't it?
  2. I don't think they were abject at all, some poor finishing really cost them though. Otherwise they looked pretty lively but the Czechs played it to a tee, smash and grab in ever sense really. Scotland remind me of Wales, a few top-level talisman players but with the squad packed full of second tier journeymen.
  3. Really enjoyed North Macedonia v Austria yesterday, it was basically attack v defence but I really hoped the Macedonians could hang on for the draw. Great to see Goran Pandev finally grace a major tournament, even at the age of 37. Thought we were a bit lucky to get a draw on Saturday, and was a combination of us not playing to our best and the Swiss being better than I gave them credit for. Hell of a thing when our keeper hasn't played a league game for four years and the bloke who provided the assist can't even get into Luton's first team. Fucking love Nic Parry (of Reslo fame) on
  4. I had flights and tickets sorted for the Baku and Rome games (for June 2020) but I think all but about 200 Welsh fans have sent them back. Its just not feasible with the testing, extra costs and hoops you have to jump through. Plus Italy won't accept arrivals from Azerbaijan anyway. Despite the fact it wouldn't come close to France 2016 (best and most costly month of my life) there's still a lot of FOMO envy going on this week.
  5. Not going to lie, I am bitter as fuck that England and Scotland are playing home matches yet Wales have to travel to a county bordering fucking Iran for two of their group matches and then Italy away in Rome.
  6. In hindsight, I'm sorry to admit that I talked a pissed up but pretty handy mate of mine out of sparking Lembit Opik at the 2003 National Eisteddfod in Powys. He was the local MP at the time but randomly decided to rock up at the young people's music festival type thing. Fuck knows what he was doing there surrounded by teens and early 20 year olds. Probably why my mate wanted to smack him one to be fair, he was a prophet.
  7. James Lawrence is already out and has been replaced with Lockyer, with is probably an upgrade if anything though. Woefully short up front if something happens to big Kieffer Moore though, I have no time for this false 9 bollocks. Should have taken Hal Robson-Kanu for his versatility and Cruyff turns.
  8. Erm, probably yes but more because the language is more widely spoken there, rather than a conscious effort to use the accent, if that makes sense?
  9. There are four main dialects really. You have that of Gwynedd and Anglesey (who tend to use 'a' rather than 'e' in many words), that of the north east and the coastal region (which can sound a bit more scouse over recent generations), west Wales (which is probably the most pleasurable to the ear) and Wenhwyseg around Gwent and much of the south. The Welsh spoken in Gwynedd and Anglesey has grown over recent decades to be seen as the closest thing to 'standard,' but to the detriment of other areas really. I think its because of people like Anglesey-born John Morris-Jones, who did a lot to
  10. I love the fact that, to this day, when speaking Welsh Iwan Roberts still sounds like he never spent a day living outside of Harlech.
  11. Couldn't agree more tbh. I was fucking miserable during Mourinho's reign. He could have won the league and I still would have hated him. A square peg in a round hole if there ever was one.
  12. While Welsh is my mother tongue its foreign for most of you monoglot bastards, so here are some of my favourites.
