Anybody know where he’s at at the moment? He left Dundalk and I had hoped he’d get a deal in the EFL somewhere!

The ‘Farmers League’

I know he was joking, but after what Gary Lineker said the other day…it got me thinking.

Is there an actual farmers football league in Wales? Or a league with majority farming players?

I read somewhere that about 40% of players in some Welsh leagues are farmers, and their football seasons can have a break during calving season.

Can anyone answer this?

Welsh footy atm

Just to say I am getting a bit concerned about the state of the team at the minute,I’m only 17 so my experience as a welsh football fan as been all great memories bar the 2018 WC qualification,so seeing us perform so poorly as of late has raised my concerns that If we don’t qualify for the euros which I don’t think we will that we will go back to the same old welsh football which in hind sight I can’t remember which was never qualifying for tourneys,because in my opinion we have a very decent squad and we should be qualifying automatically especially with the group we just had. My suggestions would be to sack R.P but there’s no one else really and Cooper dosent look like he is interested just wanted to know if any one else shares these concerns.

Wonderland - The Alice Street Story

A great documentary that just came out, about the story of one street in Swansea which produced five Welsh internationals in the same generation, including one of the greatest players ever known: John Charles.

Luton captain and Welsh international Tom Lockyer stable after cardiac arrest

https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/67738555

Second time in six months. I know he's a cracking player and seems to be a popular lad among his team mates but for the sake of his life, and while I'm not a doctor, I presume retirement has to be an option at this point. Delighted he was awake and responsive in the tunnel, that's a sign that everything will be okay for recovery.

How would you line up against Turkey and in general going forward?

I understand we wanted to go for what worked in the Croatia game, but I felt we could have played a 4 in defence and swap in an extra forward. What do you all think we should do for the Turkey? Also just generally going forward when Ramsey is fit too

Is Ward really the best GK option?

Englishman here with a question for you.

Ward obviously had a difficult season with leciester last season after many years of hardly playing club football.

This season, he can't even make the bench for Leicester.

So why is he always starting for Wales? Are you happy with him? Does he deliver? Is there anyone you'd personally like to see start in goal more often?

It's a genuine question which I've wondered about for a little while now.

Why is everyone saying Turkey has automatically qualified for the Euros?

If we beat them, beat Armenia and Croatia wins both their matches that puts us all on 16 points. Shouldn't that leave it down to GD which is obviously still not decided.

Has anyone ever been capped for Wales while playing in the Welsh league system at the time?

If people have, we're probably going back a fair way.

Will we qualify directly for euro24?

I dont think we can win both, Armenia and Turkey both defeated us last time. Turkey may have qualified, but it will be their only competitive fixture in the next international window, and they may want to get their revenge of the defeat in Euros20. We have problems against teams that give up possession against us (CRO possesses the ball a lot)

We didnt show any signs of hope against Turkey and Armenia, Latvia is a minnow, While Croatia is a shadow of themselves, letting us off the hook in the final minute last time, and was defeated by Turkey days ago. I would say this Croatia team is awful, more than that we have improved. But their remaining matches are far much easier so i can see them winning both. So it is all down to us.

Win both and we will be in the euros. Drop 2 points and we will be in the Path A, Up against Sigurdsson(easy)/Haaland(moderate) and then against Lewandowski(tough). Things will get complicated.
