Joe Ledley’s injury, finding the next gen of Wales stars and another battle of bands!

May 13, 2016

It's edition 21 of your would-be award-winning artisan podcast and its another cracker. 

Danny Gabbidon tells us why Joe Ledley should be given every chance to recover from injury.

FAW Trust boss Neil Ward tells us what they are doing to make sure they capitalise on Wales's Euro qualification and find Welsh players of the future.

And we have another battle of the bands with a little known group called the Manic Street Preachers going head-to-head with the succulent sound of Chris Phillips with their Wales songs.

How can you miss it!

Oh, and we do owe Pontypridd Town AFC manager Dominic Broad an apology as we seem to have renamed him Craig! Sorry Dom.

Neville Southall, Joey Jones and battle of the Euro2016 bands

April 29, 2016

NEVILLE SOUTHALL and JOEY JONES. Two huge legends of the Welsh game have spoken to Alex and Laurence. 

They discuss whether today's #Euro2016 heroes would get into Nev's team of the early 90s, should Wales return to Joey's beloved Racecourse and also how Joey knows more about beating England than any other living Welsh international. 
And if that wasn't enough there's a battle of the bands as Argument City's Spirit of '58 take on Derek and the Daffs' Sing Up for Chris Coleman's Boys. 
Seriously, if only listen to one podcast this year make it this one. Then break that promise and go listen to lots of others.

19th edition: Welsh footy author Jamie Thomas on Chris Coleman plus Neil Taylor and Jurgen Klopp!

April 15, 2016

Jamie Thomas is 22 and has just published his first book, The Dragon Roars Again, which looks at Wales's development under Mark Hughes, John Toshack, Gary Speed and Chris Coleman.

This of course makes us feel like we've wasted our lives! Despite this we swallowed our pride and had a fine chat about Welsh football, the past, the future, and why we don't know football until you've spoken to the Dutch!

We also chat with Swansea and Wales defender Neil Taylor who talks shoe measuring, and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits #noallennoparty, even before he bailed them out against Dortmund midweek.
