West End vs. Llanelli
Enjoyed watching West End vs. Llanelli at Pryderi Park tonight. As a Swansea City fan, I'd forgotten what it's like to watch a live football match and not feel like I'm about to explode.

I usually play 5-a-side on a Thursday, but getting my kit on for a Euro 2016 warm-up event in Cardiff tonight instead.
Edit: For those who missed the event, you can read my piece 'When Roger Freestone Played for Wales' here.
I'll be reading some football-related poems (and some non-football-related poems) at a Euro 2016 warm-up event next Thursday (7th June) in Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff.
Presented by Parthian Books and organised by Nick Fisk – author of The Blues are Back in Town – the event will feature poetry and general football discussion from myself, Nick and Tim Brenan, and a quiz from David Collins, whose Welsh Football Quiz Book has just been published by Y Lolfa.
The event starts at 7pm, and entry is priced at £3. You can find out more by going to the Facebook event page:

Just finished this excellent book on Pep Guardiola's Barça team by Graham Hunter. By far the best football book I've read. Was proud to see the Swans get a fleeting mention in the epilogue too.
The glass was given to me by our Spanish neighbour when I was quite young. Apparently Father Christmas is a culé.
Today's charity shop find: Swansea City AFC's Official Annual 1980, complete with a seemingly genuine article on how to marry a Swans player.
