  1. Apparently the ESL is not yet dead in the water. Reports indicate that the top 6 teams in the strangely named Cymru Premier League, the Wales equivalent of La Liga, have offered to join the ESL featuring Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus. The New Saints, Connah’s Quay Nomads, Bala Town, Barry Town United, Penybont and Caernarvon Town are the Welsh language names of the Super Six. Some tidy fixtures ahead. So far these clubs have only appeared on Scorio shown on S4C. Some of the English League clubs in Wales, including Swansea City, Cardiff City, Newport County, Wrecsam and Hereford United, have decided that membership of ESL would not be appropriate for them at this time but might like the option to join if the League turns out to be profitable.

  2. Rumour is Putin will have Abramovich poisoned by the weekend!
