I think I might consider cheating in a game of football if the correct result was worth a million quid to my Mam and Dad.

 

Obviously, after due consideration, I'd have to refuse to cheat. That's just a minor example of the difference between Bluebirds fans and Jacks.

;) :D

 

Hang on, you're a Bluebird?  I thought you were from Newport?

 

FFS, no wonder you don't want to go back home.

Hull City v Cardiff is live on Sky next week. Great stuff, should be an entertaining afternoon in the pub watching the locals end up disappointed

I'm from Pontypool and had a season ticket for the mighty Pontypool RFC. For years in the pre-professional era, Newport RUFC cherry-picked from the valley teams, offering jobs and a better chance of a Welsh cap as inducements. Cardiff and Swansea did exactly the same.

 

I quite like the town of Newport but, for most sports, no Pooler man would traditionally support any team with Newport in the title. At school, the valley boys supported Cardiff, the Cwmbran boys supported Newport. The exemption was Newport Wasps, because they were the only speedway team (I think) in Wales.

 

That's why I like to see the Newport Gwent Dragons finish bottom of the Welsh RU regions in the Celtic League.

 I think you're right. Spurs are reportedly the world's thirteenth-richest club, and therefore are not short of a few bob. Despite this,  the Spurs board have always been prepared to sell their best players if the price is right. 

 

 

 

http://citywire.co.u...bs/a653393#i=13

 

Apparently, the club are willing to double his wages to £150,000 per week "just to keep him". In fact, that would also boost any calculated transfer fee whilst leaving him on lower money than 8 other Premiership players.

http://www.dailymail...-EXCLUSIVE.html

 

A cynical observer might think that by raising his wage by £75,000 per week, and thus boosting his transfer value by (say) £10million, the club could sell him before the September transfer deadline for an extra £10million for a net additional outlay of £1.5million.

 

New Bentleys all round in the boardroom?

Jeez thats serious money we are talking here.

Praying that he stays but still reckon a lack of Champions League action will be a deciding factor.

Just have a feeling we could see Bale going one way and Modric plus money to Spurs.

Assuming of course Levi hasnt browned "Modders" off over the previous transfer shannanigans.

Just don't run around Cross Keys with your shirt over head if Cardiff score.

We haven't scored six in a long, long time, had a few against us, (and more).

Bradford City are in the fourth division playoffs tonight.

 

I wouldn't be too disappointed if they won.

 

God, I must be going soft in my old age.
