Default Re: Champions

From a fan's perspective the simplest equation is to decide...

if your are a Jedi Wrexham Fan or a Darkside Wrexham fan, seduced by the power of the dark side.



A Wrexham fan from the darkside will say...

'We have en endemic problem playing at home in front of large crowds.'

That's dark terminology.

A Jedi Wrexham fan would look at the dark side and work out how they can use that force to bring them over to the light.

Invite all the players from 77/78 Champions side back to the Racecourse. Include all the substitutes.

Give them their old adidas kit with their own number on the back. (They might need a larger size )

For the wonderful players who are sadly not longer here with us. Get someone else to wear their shirt and number to represent them in spirit.

And get them to all walk out before the start of a match. Have our current lads make a tunnel and clap them onto the pitch. Let the away fans see what our club is about.

You need to earn respect of those who have done it, to succeed in life.

Take the players to the Wrexham Town Hall. Show them the balcony where the trophy will be paraded by the Wrexham Mayor and let them see the park that will be full of Wrexham fans.

Make them believe. Show them the light.

This thing about 'large crowd syndrome' is a load of twaddle.

In the 30 years I have been supporting Wrexham they have won lots of games in front of large crowds. Just as they have lost lots of games in front of three men and their dogs!

Not strictly true.
Large crowd syndrome is another way of saying Increased expectation and the pressure that brings. However as El poncho says, we need to turn that nervousness into the confidence of playing in front of large crowds over the season and use it to our advantage. Currently our opposition at home are the underdogs and tend to raise their game, our crowd can be fairly quiet unless we are scoring and the support needs to be more vociferous and intimidating for the opponents.
Our away support is often more raucous than that at home and we appear as a team to be under less pressure.

Us older boys were young kids when the Champions of 77/78 lit up our hearts.

The young fans of today have no idea and no concept of what that feels like.

For your own Club to be crowned Champions and to know that your own home town club is the best in the land in your Division.

Theirs a fire in many of our bellies that will never burn out.

A fire of champions.

Play with no fear.

Buy two more players (like Dixie and Dia) who will make the world of difference. Make the fans believe you mean business.

Get them off their feet.

Help our younger fans to make our club great again.

Default Re: Champions

Champions are born out of well run football clubs.

And don't focus on badly run football clubs.

Decide if your a Jedi Wrexham Fan or a Darkside Wrexham Fan.

Get your old Lightsabre out for Wrexham. Metaphorically



Put your hand up if your a Jedi Wrexham Fan.

Let their be light on this galaxy we know as Wrexham Town.

Default Re: Champions

I took a sickie day off work today to concentrate on getting Wrexham back into the Football League as Champions.

If every fan, player, manager, director and sponsor took the very same day off work and concentrated on getting Wrexham back into the football league as Champions it would create a mighty tidal wave of energy.

When I come back to Red Passion I hope to be WelshKiwi

And I really hope we are back on top of the league...

Come on The Town. You legend.

El Poncho has officially gone. He has now left the building.

He has taken off his Poncho and headed off into the Spanish sunsets to enjoy early retirement with Juan Ugarte.
El Jonez can now take up the RP Espana mantle. Viva El Jonez.

Back on it...
In 1978 after beating Tranmere 6-1 at home at the Racecourse, Bill Shankly took centre stage in a packed press room and said "This Wrexham side are the greatest third Division side I have ever seen."

We all know you can't live off past glories. But you can use those past glories to inspire your future.

To all the players of Wrexham AFC.... learn from our great side of 1978. To play with no fear. Use that same great badge on all your chests to unite you. Your lucky to wear it. Lots of footballers never get to wear the Wrexham badge.

Learn to love the big Racecourse crowds. Feed off their energy. Show our young fans that the players of their home town club will make their dreams come true. Something they will have never seen before. Which means your success will change them for life.

Help inspire our crowds. Don't ever be scared to shoot often. Just make sure it dips and arcs and is on target. Help them learn to have confidence in you. To know that no matter what happens away at Havant & Waterlooville, you will still be standing there holding the silver trophy at the very end with Sam.

Never accept 2nd best or 3rd best. That's a compromise. Go for the very top.

Our Town deserves it.

#WeAreWrexham
