I visited Oriel Mon ( Llangefni ) yesterday there is a superb exhibition of paintings by Owain Fon Williams of the Wales Squad at the 2016 Euro championships ,Owain Fon Williams was a member of the squad and his paintings are absolutely brilliant ,the portrait of Gareth Bale is the highlight but equally the rest of his work is outstanding .
The exhibition is on until the 5/8/2018 ,well worth a visit .

Next Saturday Llandudno fc host Barry Town Utd at Maesdu Park,for some reason the people of Llandudno struggle to embrace their club,Caernarfon had 1,300 at a game last nite which is brilliant,i think the Welsh community there gets people together unlike town where we struggle to get over 300

I've just been reading in today's Daily Mirror about a Nationwide scheme for football teams from under 6 to under 11 that's being introduced to help maintain the morale of youth sides that get thrashed regularly.
The "power play" let's teams losing by four goals or more to bring on another player and even add a 13th if they still ship goals
I hope that it's never going to apply to the Premier league although I'm sure that my cousin Norman would be happy to see 12 or 13 Everton players on the field!        ;D

Isn't that another instance of the world going soft?  OK, team is getting thrashed - shouldn't that be an incentive for them to try harder, learn from their mistakes and see how the opposition is managing to turn them over so easily.  Sorry, kids have to learn, sometimes maybe the hard way - but playing against better oppositon can only improve your own game, regardless of what sport it is.

Look at the Scottish Highland League - Fort William finished bottom last year with a negative goal difference of about 150, they're well on the way to repeating that this year, and have also been docked 9 points for ineligible players so are currently on a points score of minus 7 having managed two drawn games!!!  Yet they seem to keep playing every week - if they were allowed to bring on an extra player for every goal against above 4 they would end some matches with 19 players on the field (yes, I know that's not quite the new rule!).

Wonder what would have happened if Bournemouth had been allowed to bring on a couple more players for the last 15 minutes of today's game?!!!

I think that we would still have  won DVT        ;D


It's a crackpot idea and should not have been given the go ahead in the first place as it doesn't teach the children anything.

Another stupid idea, when I managed junior football we suggested a rep side, to play teams from different parts of GB , if you remember the swifts used to get hammered every week but never gave up ,Nev and Joey didn't do too bad .these guys making the suggestions I bet have never played .
