    Well the latest on the controversial ’39th game’ proposal is that the FA haven’t in fact abandoned their planned talks with UEFA over it but are going to rethink the proposal over and go back to them with a revised plan. Why, I don’t know as everyone is against it (bar a few greedy chairmen). What the revised plan will be I can’t imagine but why they’re sticking by their guns is beyond me and is just going to make them look even more foolish in the long run. They need to see that NO-ONE wants this and the sooner the plan is ditched the better.

    That’s a Roberto Manciniesque scarf you’ve got there, 200.

    I would have called it “bitchin'” about 35 years ago.

    I’m not above calling it “bitchin” now, UA.

    I have some lovely memories of the Premier Cup;

    Bangor nearly beating Wrexham and beating Cardiff Away.

    Exotic sponsors; The Super Furry Animals logo adorned Cardiff’s shirts and Goldie Lookin’ Chain did likewise with Newport.

    I was almost attacked twice (on separate occasions) by Newport’s finest.

    Lastly the clubs were playing for one of the more bizarre trophies in the world, a wooden ball.
