|Match day parking |

After a few seasons of using the Lyte ladder car park, they now don’t open up on match days. As somebody who travels from out of the area, can anybody advise on an alternative. That side of the river is great as we are straight out after the match and back on the M4 quickly.
(I tried to search for other threads, but the search function isn’t working on my phone)

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock has revealed that midfielder Joe Ralls is a doubt for the trip to Reading on Sunday after coming down with an unknown illness.
The midfielder was due to give a drugs test following the last-gasp win over Luton Town at the weekend, but was rushed to hospital after he started vomiting.
Speaking ahead of the trip to the Madejski, Warnock said: "Joe Ralls was one of the lads drug tested on the weekend and he couldn't give a sample.

A lack of quality from both sides and a lot of misplaced passes, atm I wouldn't fear playing either of them.

Watching one of these 'how is it made' progs and it's DM's. Many of us of a certain age can remember having a pair...was into the skinhead/ska music scene. Can't for the life of me think how buttons I had...remember going to Wrexham and all of us getting told by some tw@t of a police super...that we all had to watch the match without our boots...picking them up after the match
Any good stories out there?

He's on the One Show currently. He doesn't half get on my moobs. He's not funny. Does anyone actually laugh at him? Calls himself a comedian. Crouch is far more amusing. His lazy, grating Liverpudlian accent doesn't help, either.
|Importance of academy highlighted.|

There's nothing quite like the refrain 'He's one of our own.' Fans love to see a player their club has nurtured break into the first team and succeed. In the past few weeks we have seen how the club can generate considerable funds and how an input of young players can bolster the first team. I really enjoyed watching the contribution youngsters made in the cup match this week.
It is a considerable investment for a club like Swansea outside the top tier to maintain it's Category 1 status. The highest rated academies are able to sign the best players and command the largest fees. Category 1 academies have high contact time with young players, require a minimum of 18 full-time staff and an operational budget of £2.5m. Academies are reviewed every two years and re-categorised if necessary. Categorisation is the result of an independent audit.
If we maintain our present status in this league it will take considerable nerve and commitment to finance the academy. This will be especially so when in the lean years we may produce very little of any quality. A concern must also be the possible poaching of academy staff by others and of course the disappointment Cameron Toshack must feel. To avert any exits may again take more money in extra wages.
I did both my referee and coaching badges many years ago and developing young players is full of many unfulfilled dreams and potential never being achieved. This makes our academy really something very special and a jewel to be treasured.

Anyone who can help these young footballers would be great. The club have donated towards their team in the past but the jerseys are now 3 seasons old and starting to suffer from wear and tear. Maybe someone could set up a crowd funding page to raise money for their new equipment? I know our kit-man is sending new goalkeeping gear.

Absolutely shocking, more so that 10 males aged from 13-30, have been arrested.
On top of all the recent stabbings, what on earth is this Country coming too
