Was really surprised at the decline in the city centre over the last few years and, to be fair, it was a bit of a kip.  Must have had 20 people asking for money walking back from the stadium. BBC News Wales reporting a major problem with the drug "spice" in Cardiff. The number of people sleeping in doorways was a real eye opener, and even sleeping in tents in the grounds of the Castle.

On the other hand, Cardiff Bay is well worth a visit. Lots of quality bars and restaurants. More expensive than the city centre, but far more enjoyable. 

Shame to see the city centre the way it is.

Shocking. Was walking up main street last night and every single doorway had someone in it. 
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes an even bigger man to laugh at that man.

Worse than Dublin?
I would say a lot worse Gang of us in Weatherspoons on Tuesday and one came into the pub and asked us for a few quid. There way more upfront than at home in My view. It's very said and the majority look to be addicts good few of them own Dogs too. Gave one fella a tenner because my heart nearly bled for the man. 
I'm the gaffer whatever I say goes.

had great craic and enjoyed seeing everyone I would travel with. The football was shocking, completely fed up with O’Neill now. He will be gone in November I think. 

Some craic on the plane with Sham157. We sat next to a woman Sara from New York, she was about 70. Offered me a bite of her tuna sandwich, don’t think she had realised the innuendo. Roll on Poland.

"Sara without a H" as she informed whatever poor sod was answering the phone in her accomodation. Was a few rows behind her on way over and heard most of what she had to say.
