    The Wales thread -- as proudly promoted by Grecian

    Long-awaited, but, as our esteemed sponsor Grecian explained, much-needed so that "respectable people can avoid it"

    I know it's probably only Grecian and me that are really gunning for Wales this time round, but let's take a step back and celebrate the tremendous achievement of our first qualification for a major tournament since 1958. And, yes, we didn't qualify for that one really, but by god we beat those Brazilians, so who's splitting hairs? Not me and my boyo Grecian, that's for sure, I can tell you.

    So let's put all our Cymru content by-here, with Grecian and me leading the Bread of Heaven chorus, and celebrate the new dawn of a new era of the new arising of a new superpower: Croeso, we say, Croeso!!!

    Owain Fon Williams, released last year by a club who had just been relegated to the conference, and gets a gig in the SPL and a trip to the Euros with the Welsh for his troubles

    Welsh and Scots slammed in one swoop, I can relax now.

    I do love Fonners though

    I'll definitely be cheering them on against anyone but the Irelands. Hopefully every other player's relative incompetence means Bale and Ramsey are given the freedom to shoot from anywhere.

    I will secretly (but probably not that secretly) pee my pants laughing if they beat England. And I actually quite like this England side too, easily the most likeable squad for best part of 10-15 years. The butthurt from the general public if Bale and Co roll them over would/will be greatly amusing though.

    You can't talk, you basically live in Wales anyway.

    Wait we have a likeable squad? I suppose it's mostly likeable aside from the few massive ****s like Vardy, Wilshere and Alli. Two of those are likeable football-wise I guess.

    I like some of Wales' bang average players who don't look like athletes. Thinking of David Vaughan here really.

    Well, I meant it's not full of the old guard from the "golden generation", and there's now a team that's capable of actually playing attractive football rather than the "hoof it and run" headless-chicken style we've become accustomed to.

    Haha, I think he is made more likeable through all of the chat **** get banged/having a party party/WKD memes that are going around. Don't really know much about the bloke other than his modest early career and that he's a handy player.

    I heard a rumour he came from non league football, think they might have mentioned it in commentary on one of his games for England - anyone else heard that?

    He's got a nasty streak too. I can't help but like him a bit either, but it's really because he fired a really likeable underdog to the title rather than for anything about him personally. If he was playing for Chelsea he'd be universally hated.

    He kind of said it over and over in a really aggressive way. Man's a ****, meme or not.
