    I would be interested to know exactly why Wrexham, Swansea and Cardiff (and for that matter, Newport) are so offended by the thought of playing in the Welsh League’s?

    It’s a massive massive step down in status. You’re not going to fill the Liberty Stadium with games against Llanelli, The New Saints and Rhyl – and they’re three of the better clubs in that set-up. Wales is too small a country to sustain a first class league, as the attendance figures, stadia, media interest, EVERYTHING in fact, demonstrate. No offence to those playing in the Welsh League, in fact some of them have made huge steps forward from the dark old days of the Allbright Bitter Merit Table; but most of the clubs involved are probably not Blue Square Premier standard. Having Cardiff and Swansea as a kind of Welsh Celtic and Rangers, only with even less money, watching the best Welsh players skip over the border, with the memories of being part of a much bigger league for many years, would be an absolute disaster for both clubs.
