The Welsh side take on their Championship rivals Barnsley in the second semi-final in 12 days’ time but the build-up to what is Cardiff’s biggest game in the competition since they won it in is being dominated by a parochial dispute that has become an embarrassment to the BBC. Leighton James, who won 54 caps for Wales, has been axed “for the foreseeable future” from his regular slot with the BBC’s Wales on Saturday programme after writing in his column with the South Wales Evening Post: “To see Cardiff in the final would be hard to take for Swansea fans. So, to be brutally honest, I think I’m behind Barnsley on this one. The year-old James spent three years with Swansea in the 80s and was referring to the attraction of supporting Simon Davey, Barnsley’s Swansea-born manager who also spent three years at the Vetch Field. James is a colourful character who is currently serving a drink-driving ban and he later repeated the opinion on the commercial Real Radio station. The controversial comments were deemed to have undermined his credibility when commenting on Cardiff, leading to him being dropped yesterday. James could not be contacted yesterday. Wayne Rooney’s publishers, HarperCollins, will continue to contest the libel action brought by his former manager at Everton, David Moyes, with the England striker even prepared to take the stand if asked to in May. A close-season court date has been provisionally set for consideration of the case after a pre-trial review hearing held last week went against the publisher, with a high court judge dismissing its arguments. Amanda Doherty, Arsenal’s director of communications, complained to Sky programme directors after William Gallas’s pre-match motivating speech to a huddle of team-mates was broadcast with a live audio feed.

A few weeks ago, we were saddened to hear that a few couples in the Swansea area had been left with their big day dreams dashed after the unforeseen closure of Gower Hotel. One couple in particular, Rachel and Jonathon, found out about the closure just nine weeks before their wedding was due to take place.
As we only took over the venue a few months ago, we were in a position to offer the couple the exact same day whilst utilising our wedding planning skills and expertise. Jonathon discussed the situation, with South Wales Evening Post commenting, “It was some mad twist of fate. We actually wanted to get married there in the first place, but it was a bit out of our price range.
So to find ourselves in the position of getting married there after everything was amazing. We live and breathe weddings so nothing fazes us! Plus, with our Whirlwind package, you get lots of added extras to make your day extra special.

The company is called Suave Promotions and we have countless amounts of clients all over Wales and now have our own office space! Leaving our full time jobs really was worth the risk!
We both work fulltime on the business and I recently got myself a girlfirend, so I have managed to get some ecape from work and spend some time relaxing and taking my mind off of work, Natalie however is still single I knew she was too busy to look for one herself so I decided to take matters into my own hands and record a video advertising her for a date, I then posted the video on Facebook, Free Ads and Gumtree It has all gone really crazy for us, our first TV appearance is this coming Saturday on Breakfast Sunrise, a breakfast television show in That being our first UK television appearance!

Hopefully my sister finds Mr Right, but I’m definately looking forwad to filming the highs and lows of every date she goes on now for the coming weeks! As my sister has been inundated with date offers, I on the other hand have been flooded with requests to find a man for women searching for love!

The Arctic Circle is a place few people would want to make their home. The only human feet which have passed through are those of Inuit hunters, explorers and scientists, all more than happy to leave when their tasks are completed. With temperatures plummeting to minus 45 degrees centigrade, the only obvious sign of life in this forgotten place, which lies in complete darkness for half the year, is the odd polar bear or walrus.
