Loren Dykes – Centurian.

I think I’ve mentioned this before on the podcast, but I’m a relatively new convert to Women’s football. I started coaching a girls team about 10 years ago as a favour to a friend who through injury and illness couldn’t continue. From then my interest in women’s football grew and grew and since attending some … Continue reading Loren Dykes – Centurian.


Wales 1 – 0 Slovakia

So a vitally important game, which required a win, was won. Giggs made some tactical and personnel changes most of us didn’t expect, and it all seemed to pay off. I can’t imagine Giggs dreamed this week would go as well as it has, but I doubt there’s much he’d change about it all. Put … Continue reading Wales 1 – 0 Slovakia

The “Welsh Way” for Manchester United?

A few things struck me today after Jose Mourinho’s sacking at Manchester United. Firstly, his reign described as a “catalogue of failings” on BBC Sport this morning, and secondly that they are appointing an interim manager from outside the club until the end of the season. And before you ask, this does have a Welsh … Continue reading The “Welsh Way” for Manchester United?

Podcast follow up – Stats

In our latest podcast (amazingly number 21 of our meanderings) I included a couple of stats that Dai, at least, enjoyed and I think merit a little further exploration. In all the desire for more attacking football and the need for the Wales men’s team to score more goals, I wanted to examine just how necessary that was.  … Continue reading Podcast follow up – Stats
