Hopefully, more ‘Back to the Future’: 1977/78.

Long way to go but the building blocks are there.

Am loving the sensible caution slash logic.

Logic grounds you.

But dreams are built in the stars.

When you aim for the very top you are more likely to get there than aiming for third place.

When you climb Snowdon you aim for the very top.

To go up as Champions we will need to draw on our Champions of yesteryear.

If I was at Wrexham I would get every single one of our 77/78 players to a home game and look our current squad in the eye in the dressing room and tell them what it takes to make Wrexham Champions. Inspire them to follow in their footsteps.

For the players who are sadly no longer around today or unable to be there I would show our current lads a video of what they did on the pitch. At the Racecourse. The teams they played off the park. The really big teams they rolled over for fun. The smiles on the players faces.

But most of all show them the look on the fans faces and what the underbelly of this club is really about. Amazing happy fans. The best fans in the land.

Wrexham were last Champions 40 years ago. Forty years.... 40.

That's a long time.

Let our loyal young fans feel what it feel's like... to be champions.

They deserve it more than anyone.

In life, you can think the worst or you can think the best.

Confidence builds success.

If a boxer goes out into the ring and thinks he's got no chance.

He ends up on the canvas.

Champions is a state of mind. It's the way the management set their stall out. Its the way the players play for each other not for themselves.

It's never accepting second best.

It's putting a bit of All Blacks polish on your football boots.

Imagine if this thread runs a whole season...

And we end up Champions.

Nobody will care about how we did it.

But we will all revel in the success.

And it will be the believers on the pitch, in the dugout and on the terraces who will get us there..

It's far too early to feel confident - we have played teams with worse forwards than we had last year. B.Wood should have been out of sight by half time.
However it is obvious that our team is much better than last year - we appear to have a better manager with a more positive attitude and approach to the game, we certainly have better players.
Given that we only just missed out last year it would follow that we should at least get to the play offs.
Champions? - it is possible if the team continues to improve - whatever happens we are heading in the right direction.

A clever manager susses out any weakness and brings in strength.

Sam Ricketts is a clever manager.

You also need to play with confidence.

To be confident you need courage to get rid of fear.

Playing with confidence in front of big crowds because you have nothing to fear.

The last Wrexham manager who got us crowned as champions in 1978 told me last year.

"We did it by playing with no fear."

Those words ring true.

Play with No Fear.

Stick it up on the home dressing room door.

Thats all very well and good but means nothing, ultimately it's the quality on the pitch that gets you to be champions.

Not wholly true.

You could have great players throughout the team but if they either don’t play as a team or believe in themselves they will probably flounder.

We are still weak in a few areas but the squad is looking good if we can bring in a catalyst to up our game for 90 mins.

Birdy,

Everything means something.

Nothing means nothing.

Put 11 world class players on a pitch and they can still be beaten by a team playing with passion who are playing for each other as a team.

Did you not see the match v Arsenal, or Porto or Carlisle away in 1978 ?

Even the greats crumble when they stop playing as a team.
