Same. Need a giant flag to cover it, or two flags side by side, or three.. you get where I'm going.

I guess they'll be a big clear up plus the bird shite needing some attention in time for the concerts.

We'll with the election coming up, it wouldnt surprise me if Lucas promised something.

Have a chat?
There were some suggestions of Carwen Jones helping out in some of the informed Labour candidates replies to Wrexham.coms q and a for local elections. Perhaps mere words again.

Thanks to the asset strippers - i believe access is a major problem to the kop end of the stadium now and could hinder any potential development of a new stand

Carwyn Jones, would need a very good reason to encourage the Welsh Government to build a new stand for the biggest professional club in North Wales. Wales already has the Principality Stadium. Plus Cardiff and Swansea stadiums locateed close to the Capital city, so in their eyes a short sighted view would be why bother investing all that tax payers money in the North ?

The North / South divide has been there for years and years and years. All the best Welsh footballers bar Giggs, Bale and Ramsey have come from the North.

The people who Assett stripped our club, took away its principal assets for their own personal gain. By separating and selling off the ground and the training ground they have really damaged Wrexham Football Club. Our club only continues to exist with a trustworthy stakeholder (the fans who actually love he club) because of the formation of the Supporters Trust.

We are still feeling the effects of those damaging years and the empty Kop is both a symbol of that terrible dark period and also a symbol of hope that the community of fans can one day turn this around.

I do like surprises, but if Carwyn Jones actually fronts up as 1st minister and delivers a new stand as part of a strategic policy for North Wales together with the Wrexham Borough Council and the ground owner, Glyndwyr then I for one will be very, very happy to see that elephants really do fly.

Nice idea but not that straightforward. The big 150th anniversary flag took 2 of us 20 minutes every game to put up. Less time to take down obviously. What you suggest would take much longer. Couldn't leave flags on there as they would get destroyed

Maybe you could get the ball boys to do It? Must be 8/10 of them so it should be quicker.

A shame it's not up every match.
