Mark Hughes - I wish he could help Welsh football (more)

So apparently Mark Hughes was in the running for the Hull job but they have ended up with Iain Dowie instead. Got me thinking, I wish Sparky could come down to Swansea (who have scored a crazy low number of goals this season despite their lofty league position) for the rest of the season and work with Chad Bond, Kerry Morgan David Coterill and Casey Thomas

Aaron Ramsey - Get Well Soon !

Just wanted to do a quick post to say sorry I felt for poor Aaron Ramsey - Wales Star - who suffered a bad break of his leg on the weekend.

Hope you feel well soon Aaron and have a speedy recovery and get back in the Arsenal and Wales team before long. You are an amazing footballer with a great talent.

If you fancy going down to The Liberty to watch Wales youngsters taken on Italy, tickets will be on sale soon and will be £8 for adults with kids at half price. Kick off time is TBA.

England beat Sweden in U21 finals

Shame Wales didn't qualify for the U21 finals in Malmo this year.

England have just beaten Sweden on penalties in the semi final having drawn 3-3 with the hosts. England threw away a 3 goal lead to draw with Sweden who were resurgent in the second half, Swedish sub Leminot Harbuzi playing a blinder.

Wales narrowly lost out to England (5-4 agg) for the right to go to the finals in Sweden in qualifying.

New Wales U21 football squad

WALES U21 coach Brian Flynn sends out a new wave of raw youngsters tonight as he starts building all over again for his country’s football future.

Flynn’s side play their first match of a new Uefa Championship campaign away to Luxembourg, having been denied the chance of a warm-up friendly in Northern Ireland last month because of a frozen pitch.

It will be the U21s’ first match since their play-off with England in October, a 5-4 aggregate defeat which saw Flynn’s young stars do themselves proud but ultimately fail to reach this summer’s European finals in Sweden.

But now the bulk of that squad are too old for the new Uefa tournament.

Flynn said: “This is a new dawn, a new beginning for these lads. They will have a lot to live up to after what the previous squad achieved, but I have high hopes for them.”

Flynn has seen a raft of bright youngsters progress into John Toshack’s senior squad and will hope many of the teenagers who will play against Luxembourg – the return match will be played in Llanelli next Tuesday – will follow in those footsteps.

Flynn now has to do without Wayne Hennessey, Jack Collison, Gareth Bale, Chris Gunter, Aaron Ramsey, Lewin Nyatanga, Neal Eardley, David Edwards, Sam Vokes and Ched Evans, who have all made it into the full squad.

Of that team who took on England in the second leg of the play-offs at Villa Park, just four are still involved with the U21s.

That quartet – Cardiff’s Darcy Blake, Swansea winger Shaun MacDonald, Leicester’s Andy King and Reading’s Simon Church – will become the spine of Flynn’s new squad.

Football Association of Wales spokesman Ceri Stennett said: “Brian has done a great job bringing through players, and now he has another group to work with.

“The fact that we won our qualifying group last time and reached the play-offs means we have been seeded and received what we feel is a favourable draw.”
