Carl Darlington understands, just listen to his interview earlier.
He's a supporter so he knows what we want. Fingers crossed we are starting the road back to being a club that can challenge at the right end after 4 crappy seasons.

True, your gates have been impressive and surely exceeded your boards expectations so your cash to spend this year should be plentiful!

In 3yrs we need to have at least made the play offs.

Next season is an unknown, with the acquisition of Darlington it has To be a positive step in the right direction, we need to be at least challenging for the play offs next season even if well don't make it, we also need to turn the Cae Ras into a fortress the last 3/4 seasons we are drawing or losing to many home games.

If we are to get the next generation to come and keep coming to watch us we need to be leaving the ground with a bit of a warm glow after seeing us hardly score since the days of Vose.

As to the quote above of only use 2 sides of the ground ridiculous idea, the GUS is where our vocal support is even in such a dire season like the last it's where atmosphere is generated. But nothing will replace the old Kop for that.

So no pressure Dean it's great that you're going to have CD to mentor you.

It makes me laugh thinking about three years on here.

If DK has a slow start , which is possible given how many new faces we have he'll be lucky to get past three games before the whinging starts.

Already had some WUMS calling for DK's head because we didn't challenge for the play offs this year.

Three years ha ha ha ha

2017/18 - Top 7 then lap of the gods.

2018/19 - Promotion to FL.

2019/20 - Top 10 in League 2.

The club would be more suited to life in the FL. Alas, getting out of this hell-hole is bloody difficult, but not impossible.

On the football side then DK has to rebuild the identity of the squad and the team. Last years team was completely soulless and in reality there was not much affinity between most of the squad/team and the fans. Once Manny was released we lost any sort of continuity and became a team of 1 season chancers.

I think DK will need to put his faith in at least 5 players that will be core to his plans for at least 18 months and possibly 2 years. Dunn has only signed for a year and likewise Hurst and Rutherford and I don't see anything wrong with this. However DK needs to find his Creighton, his Ashton, his Danny Wright and even his Keates - something he will look to build around.

Off the pitch what should we be doing better, are the trust growing the club or merely just trying to survive on a hand to mouth existence? Last years losses show we have lived over and above our means and lets hope it was a valuable lesson.

What is happening with trust membership - why are we not seeing any initiatives in this area as apart from the one off 'selling the membership soul' for Stoke FA Cup tickets we don't seem to have made any progress in this area at all. Lapsed memberships, membership card problems etc. all seem to indicate a lack of imagination and creativity in this area.

It will be interesting to know the success of this summers concerts and where we are in terms of progress against the 2 and 3 year plans.

Gold bond - when are we going to see moves to bring this in-house and then start to grow this and increase profits.

What changes are going to be made to the kiosks and bars inside the ground - any plans for the ill-fated Jonseys bar and maybe a 50, 60 or 70" screen that can be seen from more than 3 foot away

I feel next season is going to be a big watershed for our club, Wrexham fans are desperate for success and we need this club to start the green shoots of recovery after going backwards on the pitch for the last 3-4 years.
The ageing fans base still able to recall cup exploits, 3 or 4 promotions and some exciting players isn't going to last forever and we need the next generations of fans coming through and wanting to watch this club and they need a club with some identity.

I think the changes need to start now - no more excuses of asset strippers, clearing historic debts and a manager that would have taken us down.

The BTB initiative has shown there is still life in the 'old dog' and a few positive signings, some momentum on ST sales and then a decent start to the season and things will really look at lot different in September.

This is being actively looked at, a meeting took place last night ( Which was not the first ) we will hopefully be in a position for a re-launch at some point this year, it needs to be right before the green light though.

A lot of work to do, but ultimately the aim and will, is for it to be just for Wrexham fans and to bring much higher profits into the club.....

Will always have some people calling for the manager's head, unless you are top with 10 straight wins or something.

The key thing now is he appears to have a bit of time to get it right, there is pressure of course but I am thinking more supporters will be patient this time, we need to be because there is a lot at stake.

I hope you're right. DK and CD could be our new dream team.
