Bad Sporting Days

These past eight days have been terrible for Welsh rugby and football fans. Yesterday, I was one of the 22,000 fans in Cardiff's Millennium Stadium who saw a young but poor Wales crash out of the World Cup to Finland. I have had some low points watching Wales. Yesterday was one of the worst.

Like most fans there yesterday I just could not understand why the Welsh team played the way they did with one player up front and I feel for Craig Bellamy in particular. He ran his heart out but had no-one to feed him the ball. He was on to a hiding to nothing and nothing is what we got.

Perhaps the time has come for a managerial change. I'm not jumping to that conclusion just yet. I'll be going to the Germany match on Wednesday and I wish Wales well. Another really bad result however and I may join the growing number of fans who will crave a managerial change.

It was a desperately depressing afternoon, alright.
Bellamy, as you say, played his heart out, but the system defeated him.
I can't say I'm looking forward to tomorrow night. I wish I wasn't going!

Hi Greg - Good to hear from you. Hope you are OK despite the football. I'm going tomorow too. I'm dreading it!!!
