May 3rd 2012

On May 3rd 2012 Welsh Labour acheived a great set of council election results in Wales. The party took control in a significant number of councils, and has a new vibrant set of voices in communities right across Wales. The National Assembly for Wales Research Service has published an analysis of the 2012 elections. it makes a pleasant read for Labour members and supporters . Enjoy!

Still working.....

Wasn't sure if this would still work, but log in found, and lets see if it will post. assume so. Last posting was football so perhaps opportune to write as play off in progress _ Super Kev - and Champions League later. testing!!

Soccer USA - Y Felinheli style

I don't blog often these days but the start of the US soccer season brings good news for Y Felinheli, Gwynedd, Wales and women's soccer.

See here for the new season exploits of Shan Jones.

Surely one of the leading young footballers of recent times. Go get 'em Shan (and come on S4C/BBC Wales and Sky Sports - a nice trip for some reporting team or other).

A great footballer

Saw this on the BBC web site and it gave me many happy memories of watching a skilful footballer at the Hawthorns.

Cunningham, Regis, Robson, Statham.... glory days.

Interesting appointment

Roberto De Mateo - that will do at the Baggies.

A young manager with a bit of success who played at the top level. Just concerned at these rolling contracts which, fair play to the guy, suggest an ambition beyond the Hawthorns. How can their be a greater ambition!!!!!?

(still alive, but blooging on politics now restrianed by job - c'est la vie).

Football already!!!

Well I have been very quiet since taking up a new job but today saw the publication of footie fixtures for 2009/10 and the Baggies start with a home game at Newcastle. Like the premiership - but not!! Hope we find a manager by then.

With my base now in South Wales it is handy for Cardiff (16th Feb), Swansea (16th March) and Bristol City (20th Feb).

So that's a busy week on the M4 ahead of me in Feb 2010!

Upturn with Germany!!?

So it will soon be time to wander off from work and take the 500 metres to the Millennium Stadium to see if Wales can start to recover some form before this World Cup qualification series of games ends.

In spite of calls to use some more experience in the team I feel Toshack and Wales may as well use all their remaining games to blood as much talented youth as possible. That will ensure they are all building some real experience of international football ready for the next Euro campaign - as that is sadly where the focus now has to be.
