-Welcome to us
-live on a Wednesday evening.
-Tonight on Mwy o Sgorio...
-..we have one of the best strikers
-to ever pull on a Welsh shirt.
-He's also worn the famous colours
-of Arsenal, West Ham and Celtic.
-He's as much of a hero in Scotland
-as he is here.
-Who am I talking about?
-John Hartson with another goal
-In towards Hartson!
-Nobody deserves it
-as much as he does.
-Welcome to the big man,
-And to an even bigger one,
-Owain Tudur Jones!
-Great to have you here.
-Great memories of you
-playing for Wales.
-My biggest honour in football
-was to win 50 caps for Wales.
-I have some great memories.
-We almost got to a major tournament.
-Not as good as the class of 2016.
-The Old Firm derby
-takes place this weekend.
-Arsene Wenger and Arsenal.
-Ryan Giggs and Wales.
-Before that, a special chat with a
-current Welsh player, Chris Gunter.
-Elis James went to meet him and we
-start by taking a look back in time.
-I'm here at the Madejski Stadium,
-home of Reading FC.
-I have the honour of meeting
-one of my favourite players ever...
-..Mr Chris Gunter.
-Now then, Chris, do you think
-playing international football...
-..means more to you
-than other footballers?
-I really appreciate it.
-I've said before, not just myself
-but in terms of the feeling...
-..we get as a team from the fans
-and the country at the minute.
-I've never experienced.
-It's a very powerful thing.
-Do you, as a player,
-drift back to the Euros?
-I'm not one to overly look back.
-Oh, I am.
-Does it not make it worse
-because you almost want to go back?
-I still sometimes say it to Aaron
-when I'm speaking to him...
-..life was a lot easier in Dinard.
-It was just this wave.
-No real responsibility.
-You were away from home,
-everything was done for you.
-Our job was to go training
-and prepare for these massive games.
-I think that the chin up, that's
-my favourite photo of all time.
-Daughter and family,
-Is it not, no?
-I think that is our Gazza's tears.
-That for me sums up
-..almost as much,
-if not more, as the goals.
-When you did it,
-did you have any inkling?
-No, because obviously
-when the goal went in...
-..and you knew
-we were probably going to lose...
-..that felt like the end of
-the world at that particular time.
-Probably me thinking if I was in the
-stand and saw a player doing that...
-..if the player is OK, if he's
-telling me to keep my head up...
-..I just felt that for that game,
-we'd worked too hard...
-..for the last two years,
-four years, six years, to qualify...
-..for it all to be about England
-and the England game.
-It was bigger than that for us,
-we were in a major tournament.
-Yeah, we've lost but if we go and
-beat Russia, we're going through.
-I don't think
-that was a Welsh thing.
-That was the media
-in terms of Wales v England.
-We'd worked too hard
-to let one defeat to England...
-..spoil our experience and
-obviously, ultimately, it didn't.
-Because of that,
-the shackles were off us...
-..and everyone knows
-how we went on to play.
-If that England last-minute goal
-hadn't have happened...
-..I'm not sure we'd have done
-as well as we could have.
-At the time,
-you think it's the end of the world.
-Looking back, maybe it was
-one of the best things...
-..that did happen for us.
-Chris Gunter talking to Elis James.
-has a great record for Wales.
-Chris Gunter has 85 caps
-which is level with Gary Speed.
-Gunter is only 28 years of age.
-He speaks ever so well.
-He is criticized
-but he always turns up.
-No one has been able to
-take his place.
-He will break all records.
-Some players like Gunter have an
-amazing relationship with the fans.
-John is another who has always
-been a favourite with the fans.
-Scoring in a Old Firm match
-Did you enjoy that relationship?
-It was very important to me.
-Scoring a winner made me want
-to run to the home fans.
-The fans love that relationship.
-Owain, you have played in Scotland.
-We forget the size
-of Celtic Football Club...
-..and John's status within it.
-Celtic and Rangers
-are more than football clubs.
-They are institutions.
-Walking into Parkhead or Ibrox is
-like walking into a museum.
-I'm sure John won a lot
-of games there.
-Will we see another Hartson
-playing for Wales?
-Here is your son, Joni,
-in the U15 team.
-He is wearing 13.
-How is he getting on?
-He's a very good player. He has
-to keep on developing.
-My father told me that Joni is twice
-the player I was at that age.
-He might beat Chris Gunter's record!
-He is obsessed with football.
-If he has the right attitude
-then he has half a chance.
-He absolutely loves the game.
-I am very very proud.
-February's Goal of the Month now.
-John will be choosing the winner.
-It's a tough job this month.
-There's room on the far side
-for Lewis Short.
-What a goal from Lewis Short.
-Mudimu. He curls it beautifully
-into the back of the net.
-Damien Allen. That's some corner
-kick and Walker has buried it.
-Declan Walker with the volley.
-Rittenberg. It's a race
-between Rittenberg and James.
-Rittenberg is stronger than James.
-What a goal from Dean Rittenberg.
-Cotterill. Barry have
-so many skilful players.
-Here's John Owen.
-He takes it on himself.
-He curls his shot. What a goal.
-Great goal from John Owen.
-Brobbel. He goes himself. Brobbel.
-A goal of the highest quality.
-A loose pass straight to Les Davies.
-Davies with the shot
-straight to the top corner.
-Some cracking goals there but John,
-you have to choose the winner.
-I'm going for Les Davies.
-I remember him playing for Bangor.
-I used to love watching him.
-He also scored goals for Bala Town.
-As soon as that left his boots,
-it was in the top corner.
-He used to do that
-almost every week.
-That was the best of a
-good bunch of goals.
-Let's turn our attention to Swansea.
-has certainly made a difference.
-They have stopped conceding.
-Swansea are playing with
-a free spirit.
-They have an excellent home
-record under the new manager.
-There is still a lot to do.
-Swansea are only three points from
-Stoke, who are in the bottom three.
-Swansea have the knack
-of picking up points at the moment.
-I think they need three more wins.
-They are still in the FA Cup
-and will play Tottenham.
-If they can win the Cup and stay up
-it would be a great season!
-Cardiff won last night as well.
-Wales' women have been taking part
-in the Cyprus Cup.

-Green scoring for Wales.

-on penalties to Austria.

-Switzerland 0-0 Wales
-Wales 0-3 Italy

-were ranked higher than Wales.

-on social media.

-I had my little Charlie boy."
-"Today I started my first
-Stay tuned for more from Chris
-Gunter and Welsh Cup action.
-Penydarren were celebrating.
-..they're taking on Conwy Borough
-in the FAW Trophy semi-final.
-All the other quarter-finals were
-played last night due to the snow.
-Before the match,
-I predicted this on Twitter.
-I predicted all the winners.
-Mystic Mr Ebenezer!
-Marriott to take the free kick.
-It's towards Blaine Hudson.
-Aeron Edwards is on the far post!

-Melvin with a lovely pass
-to John Owen.
-Owen shoots and it's two
-Superb from John Owen.
-Phillips on the charge
-and he sets up Malcolm Melvin!
-Two goals in as many minutes.
-On towards Lee Surman.
-He is the physical presence
-up front for Carmarthen.
-Lewis does brilliantly
-and finds Thomas!
-An excellent goal.
-Williams' corner is headed out
-by Joe Heath.
-Kershaw lifts the ball back in.
-It's right under Paddy Rutter's
-nose but Neil Mitchell is there.
-Nick Pratt didn't see that as a foul
-and Newtown are ahead.
-Kieran Mills-Evans clears
-as Nick Rushton chases.
-Rutter has come way off his line.
-Rushton was first to the ball.
-Rutter is in trouble.
-Nick Pratt produces a red card
-for the young keeper.
-Iwan Williams will have to wear
-the gloves for the final minutes.
-All the Llandudno players are up.
-Will we get some late drama?
-Williams with the header
-but Newtown manage to clear.
-Who will get to this ball first?
-Nick Rushton has and it's a race
-between him and Toby Jones.
-Nick Rushton to seal the victory!
-Newtown are into the semi-final.
-Here is the draw for the 2017-18
-JD Welsh Cup semi-finals.
-Aberystwyth will play Newtown
-and Bangor take on Connah's Quay.
-Now then, Owain,
-it's getting very interesting!
-TNS being out changes everything.
-It's unfortunate for them but it
-opens it up for everybody.
-Bangor City have had the better of
-Connah's Quay this season.
-Aberystwyth or Newtown will be
-delighted to get to the final.
-There is a great opportunity
-for all the clubs.
-Nev Powell has a long history
-with the Welsh Cup.
-This is his seventh semi-final
-and he's never lost one.
-Nev Powell is now with Aberystwyth.
-I always enjoyed going to
-Farrar Road to watch Bangor City.
-He's been a very successful
-manager with the Welsh Cup.
-He's doing good things in
-He lost in the final 20 years ago
-and won 10 years ago...
-..with Bangor City.
-Maybe it's something that happens
-every 10 years for him.
-Back now to Chris Gunter
-and Elis James.
-They begin this chat with his first
-love, his first club, Cardiff City.
-When you retire, will you go back to
-supporting Cardiff away on a coach?
-I used to use my birthday money
-to buy a season ticket and go away.
-If you can go away and watch
-a team win away, it's the best day.
-As it went on, it was,
-like, if we can score a goal.
-That was generally, because we
-didn't used to win all the time.
-Have you given any thought
-to coaching or management?
-I'm going to do my coaching badges.
-I would like to stay in the game.
-I wouldn't know what else to do.
-It's all I've done.
-You could drive the coach.
-For the fans?
-That would go down well
-The team have a WhatsApp group.
-After Ryan was appointed,
-did the group go into meltdown?
-No, for stuff like that
-..when there's something
-quite serious like that.
-Have you talked to Ryan yet?
-I spoke to him...
-..he called me a couple of days
-after he was appointed...
-It was good to speak to him
-and you appreciate the call...
-..because, going forward,
-he's the man leading us.
-my debut in one of his last games.
-I played against him and met him
-at different times and stuff.
-Now that's different,
-he's your manager.
-Was he a hero of yours? You're the
-right age to have posters of him.
-Yea, I mean, when I got
-called up for the first time...
-..he was the one when you went
-to the hotel to first meet up.
-You were scared and nervous
-as a little kid almost...
-..but it was like, Ryan Giggs.
-Yeah, he would have impacted
-everyone one of us in the squad.
-I think you always give
-that respect instantly...
-..because he is your manager...
-..and he is the one that you need to
-help you and you need to help him.
-I mean, he ticks every box.
-How long does that respect last?
-A good while. Footballers are good
-at buying into what they're in.
-With the younger boys
-coming into the squad...
-..like Ethan Ampadu,
-Ben Woodburn, David Brooks.
-They're in the squad
-because they're good enough.
-You don't really need to...
-I can't go telling Ben
-how to shoot from 30 yards.
-If there's little things that you
-can help them with off the pitch...
-..but generally, we are still young
-and there's a lot more to come.
-That Ireland evening was one
-of the worst but it wasn't the end.
-I think that's the sense
-Because we had the Euros
-and we failed to qualify...
-..I think, from the outside,
-people are thinking...
-..that Welsh thing
-has been and gone.
-We know that that
-is a load of nonsense.
-We're still completely on
-this upward path.
-That's the pleasing thing to know...
-..that we have that
-for a good few years yet.
-It's been an absolute pleasure,
-lovely to meet you.
-Thanks to Elis James
-for speaking with Chris Gunter.
-Chris Gunter says it's not
-the end of the journey for Wales.
-Ryan Giggs's first squad
-will be interesting.
-How important will that squad be?
-I hope the squad can stay
-together and stick together.
-I won't be surprised if some of the
-more experienced players...
-..might not feel part of
-They might retire.
-It happens quite often when new
-manager's come in.
-Some players just don't feel that
-they belong any more.
-I think two or three players
-will call it a day.
-Ashley Williams has come in
-for a lot of stick recently.
-He was sent off for
-Everton last weekend.
-He is having a tough time
-at the moment.
-It's only natural people
-are talking about him.
-He's 33 and his best days
-might be behind him.
-I think he has one more
-campaign in him for Wales.
-The younger players must push him.
-You know Ryan Giggs.
-It's impossible to know what he'll
-be like as a new manager.
-I wanted to congratulate him
-when he got the job.
-It was always a job that he would be
-the number one choice for.
-It's important that everybody
-is seen to back him.
-It will depend on results
-at the end of the day.
-Chris Coleman had a very
-poor start as manager.
-It was the same with Gary Speed.
-Football is always about winning.
-I hope he does very well.
-Our live football this weekend
-is on a Saturday night.
-Cardiff Met welcome The New Saints
-to the capital.
-Live coverage starts at 6.45pm
-with the kick-off at 7.00pm
-Until then, goodnight.
