The odds...
When it comes to sport half the problem is anticipation, before a sporting season begins, especially, when it comes to following a Welsh Football team. Having clinched the play-off spot in an unbelievably tense 90 minutes at Wembley last May (2013), now Newport County face a fresh season in League Two. Here’s hoping that Wrecsam Town get promoted this season and join us. Perhaps this season there will be a degree of more reasonably balanced coverage from BBC Cymru / Wales. Putting Football tribalism aside it was a pretty good year for the other Welsh football clubs (and Welsh football period what with the prospects of the Cymru / Wales participating in the next European Championships). I was pleased that Swansea City not only retained their Premiership status and won the League Cup, which means that they are in with a shout of qualifying for the Europa League. I was also chuffed that Cardiff City joined them in the Premiership by winning the championship title. I was also pleased to see that Colwyn Bay have retained their place in Conference North and am hopeful that Merthyr Town can get back to winning ways and can get promoted this season.
