Somewhat understandably like many Newport County and Wrecsam fans I have Wembley on my mind at the moment and am looking forward to the Blue Square Premier Play off final, which will take palce at 3pm at Wembley Staium on Sunday 5th May. While Wembley in the one hundred and first year of our existence will be a special occasion, espcially as the County are on form and there is everything to play for, it's a pity it's not being played in the Millenium Stadium, which would have made it even better. Perhaps this time there will be a degree of more reasonably balanced coverage of the build up to the game on the part of BBC Cymru / Wales this time. I think that Wales manager Chris Coleman was absolutetly right when he said that says Newport and Wrexham will both be in the Football League within two years regardless of who wins Sunday's Blue Square Bet Premier promotion final -
personally I can live with going up this year. That said, and putting Football tribalism aside it has been a pretty good year for the other Welsh football clubs (and Welsh football period what with Mr Bale and the prospects of the Cymru / Wales participating in the next European Championships). I am pleased that Swansea City have retained their Premiership status and am looking forward to them playing in the Europa league next season, as a result of winning the League CUp. I am also pleased that Cardiff City have joined them, not just getting promoted but actually wining the championship as well. I was very pleased to see that Colwyn Bay (who won six games back to back) have retained their place in Conference North and am glad that Merthyr Town have made it to their play-off final - fingers crossed they get promoted this season.
