6. The football boys being kept back by security outside of Cardiff Arms Park after Swansea beat them … honestly, what was really going to happen? A Football Factory remake?

7. People jizzing over the weather

8. Some fantastically awful and patriotic signs, a personal favourite including a Cardiff sign saying “Your Mum Cleans Talybont”
