There Was Only One Peter Whittingham . . . And Cardiff City Fans Will Give Thanks Tonight

Gareth Bale & co may have been dominating the hearts and minds of Welsh sports fans with their efforts in Qatar, but Cardiff City will grab the limelight on Wednesday night when the club hosts a special tribute match to honour one of their all-time greats. Peter Whittingham was at the heart of everything that was good about the Bluebirds for more than a decade, a period during which the club reached a League Cup final, a Play-off Final, an FA Cup Final and, finally, the promised land of the Premier League. His achievements and statistics – 96 goals in 457 games – will stand the test of time, especially in the ultra-professional modern era.

Gareth Bale's Future Will Dominate Wales' World Cup Inquest . . . Is It Over For The No.11 After 111 Caps?

Gareth Bale insists he wants to carry on playing for his country but the real question now is whether his country needs him. As Wales’ World Cup journey came to an end, Bale and the rest of the squad stood and applauded their fans, packed into a small section behind the goal at the Ahmad Bin Ali Stadium, a venue that holds few memories, only promises of a bright, shiny space-age future.

Ieuan Evans Insists He Will Modernise The WRU . . . But Without Leaving The Grass Roots Withered

Ieuan Evans has vowed to modernise the Welsh Rugby Union, but without neglecting the community game after being appointed chair of the WRU.

Don't Drop Rambo . . . Former Wales Star Says Axing Aaron Ramsey Would Be A Big Mistake

Dean Saunders has urged Wales manager Robert Page to ignore demands to axe Aaron Ramsey for the do-or-die World Cup clash against England.

That has led to siren calls for him to be dumped by Page for the final group stage game, with either Joe Morrell, Jonny Williams, Dylan Levitt or Matthew Smith called in to replace him.
