Re: Robin Friday

Moved here in 1978 and never saw him play for Reading, but I was at the famous V-sign game in Cardiff.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (h) sponsored by a new hope

Only watched on TV, but unless McShane was carrying an injury any striker with even moderate pace will be licking his lips at the prospect of facing him.

Surprised their keeper was allowed to wear a shirt so like the team's, or did it look better if you were actually there?

Re: Building for next season

My home town is Newport and I was matey with Tim Harris their manager for many years. Can't remember the guy's name now but we signed a tall, languid, elegant Beckenbauer-style centre-back who, when doing it right look half a dozen leagues higher than us. But he would drop huge clangers. Craig Lima...

Re: BFTT Cardiff

Watched on TV only, but truly dreadful game. Cardiff must be the least well-equipped to stay up of any team promoted in a very long time. They need a whole new squad, unless Vincent Tan's plan is to trouser one season's TV money plus two lots of parachute payments and clear off.

Re: First team jetting off to Spain for intensive training

Much less than I expected. I was wondering if it was actually arranged ages ago.

How easy is it to get a flight for a party of probably 30 or so people at short notice at this time of year?

Re: FA Cup Quarter-Final MATCH THREAD: Crystal Palace (H)

The penalty was outrageous. So was the TV panel. Ian Wright obviously biased towards Palace, fair enough. Coppell supposedly a foot in both camps, but came over as supporting Palace. Lineker, Murphy and Lawrenson as summariser on their knees to the Premier League.

Re: Steve Clarke Sacked

Moyes is a daft choice, IMHO, as is Rodgers. They need a couple more failures at a higher level before slumming it in the Championship.

Re: Stadium Expansion

Wales haven't played at the Millennium Stadium for years. One reason Cardiff built the extra tier was as a vanity project for the UEFA super cup.

Re: Do you care if Clarke goes?

Has he decided it's now all about Royal Elm Park, the football club has served its purpose in unlocking the door and investment in the team won't be forthcoming?

Local TV last night said it will either cut 1900 onsite spaces to 800, or 1800 to 900. I can't remember which.

Re: Royal Elm Park

The flats look crammed in and in themselves will probably create parking problems even when there's nothing else happening on site. The three big towers proposed for the BMW site (fortunately knocked back) were going to have 118 parking spaces for 350 flats. As far out as the stadium I reckon they'l...

Re: Where can I watch FL Highlights online?

The C5 programme is dreadful. Gone for the moronic Soccer AM thing of having random supporters on set, but standing there saying nothing so it looks like a zombie movie. Truly, truly shocking.
