    Thats the bloke. I knew him years ago from the pubs and clubs in Gilfach, Beddau, Llantrisant, Pontyclun. He was another real character.

    That's the guy. Must have been at least 15-20 years ago. I hope he achieved whatever it was he was trying to do.

    @Travis Bickle is right, I was told his name was Arthur Ainsworth.
    I worked in City Hall with an office overlooking the Law Courts and I looked forward to seeing him every day at about 2.45. He would walk up the steps looking really annoyed and disappear inside shouting. He was usually kicked out within minutes and he'd wander into town to be angry with people.

    His old man had a few pubs in Cardiff, The Tudor in Riverside in the 70's, The Napier in Canton and the Retreat in Llanederyn. His boy Dai is a fair bit younger than me so never seen him in those pubs.

    Know what you mean , this bloke was a cut above though, I know of blokes from Cardiff, Ponty, Maesteg, the Rhondda who all had a go at him and lost, his reputation was that big that they came from all over to take him on.

    They reckon Paul Woods the ex rugby league player from Tredegar / Ebbw Vale was a nasty bastard. Hard fucker but a bully too. Not a good mix.

    In Merthyr it was Malcolm Price, then Peter Morgans.

    Met 'yosser' Woods, he was good mates with Bridgend's toughest bloke Alan Evans, they both played RL for Cardiff blue dragons, Alan was a good lad, yosser was an absolute nutcase.

    My mate from Tredegar told me a story about some fella satnding up to him in a pub so they went over some waste ground to have a scrap. This boy was handy but too small for Woods so when Woods got in close he just overpowered him and belted fuck out of him. They finally got Woods off him and had to call an ambulance for the boy. Woods followed the ambulance in a taxi and gave him a few more belts outside the hospital.:hehe:
