THE HALF DECENT FOOTBALL MAGAZINE

CardiffMet200

Cardiff Met were just one game away from being the first student football club to qualify for a European competition – the Europa League. Sixth place this season in the Welsh Premier League represents a historic achievement for a team made up of people who don't own their own fridges, get discounts on pizzas, wear earplugs to gigs and at least two of whom are members of a Board Games Club that they joined in October which is yet to convene.  

It is a shame that the people of Gent will not this year witness the Cardiff Met minibus bumble noisily into their team's car park, that the fans of AZ Alkmaar will be denied the opportunity to be the first mainland Europeans to see a man doing an MsC in International Supply Chain and Logistics Management appeal for a throw-in that is clearly not his. The only negative issues surrounding Cardiff Met are the image on their crest of a naked man engaged in archery, which should never happen in a responsible society, and the phrase "Men's Football" beneath it. Bit sexist isn't it, for a university and all. Cameron Carter
