Join former Wales internationals Danny Gabbidon and Jack Collison with two other blokes for the first ever FC Cymru Live on Friday, 8 March at Tramshed Tech in Cardiff.
EatSleepFootyRepeat is teaming up with the FAW as we look ahead to the forthcoming friendly against Trinidad and Tobago in Wrexham, and those all-important European Championship qualifiers this year.
We want to know who you think should be in Ryan Giggs’ starting line up when they walk out against Slovakia at the Cardiff City Stadium. And we’ll see if our expert panel agree with you.
Danny Gabbidon won 49 caps for Wales and is a Cardiff City hero having played more than 200 games for the Bluebirds. He also had spells West Ham, QPR and Crystal Palace in the Premier League. He’s a prominent podcaster, broadcaster and natty dresser, and is never afraid to tell or story or two about life in the Wales camp.
The man who made us all Believe
Such a sad anniversary

Jack Collison won 15 caps for Wales and played more than 100 games for West Ham United. With him and Aaron Ramsey coming through the Wales age-grades together we were set to have a frighteningly talented midfield before injury sadly cut short Jack’s career. But he’s still one of the most engaging characters in Welsh football with a cockney accent, has founded his own soccer school to develop the next generation and still showcases some silky skills in the occasional star sixes tournament.

Football chat is all well and good but we’ve got belting Welsh music for you too with a BBC Horizons up-and-coming act. Himalayas are an indie/garage band from Cardiff. There song ‘Thank God I’m Not You’ has been streamed more than 10million times on Spotify and they played top music festival SXSW last year.
Food is available from the succulent grill of the Little Steak Hut from Newport. They’re regular on the street-food scene after starting in 2016 and do a cracking steak in a tiger baguette with a range of sauces among other delicious dishes. Like this one:
So get an evening of fascinating football chat and cracking music to get you in the mood for Ryan Giggs’ first tilt at qualifying for a major competition.

And if you’re wondering what such an evening would look like. Here’s the last time we got two Welsh internationals in a room and got the audience to ask them questions. The ESFR Christmas Party 2017:
We're all about Welsh football.
