This wasn't a board member who called RP a disgrace was it? Just says bloke on the mic?

I agree 100% with this. RP is generally pretty "high end" in terms of debate and people are generally fairly polite. FB group is pretty poor in comparison, I wouldn't post on there. I don't see how RP got the flack last night. Probably home truths hitting home. Did anyone else find SH extremely condascending with phrases like "do you remember that ?", sounded as though he was addressing school children at times. I cringed.

Yes it was obvious that the explanation of events would take the initiative away from serious questioning and the board did that effectively.
I was surprised that Bryan stayed to listen to the second half of the "show"
I fully expected him to have been whisked away before the board was questioned.
It intrigues me that so many people seem to be keen to criticise RP, whereas very few make similar statements about Facebook or Twitter, where I’ve seen some pretty awful stuff posted. I definitely think some people are determined not to hear a bad word about those in charge - I remember someone having a go at me at a match for being transphobic because I’d raised concerns about the Steph Booth bid on here!

Keep on posting RP members. We can agree/disagree but the most important thing is 'what constitutes the best interests of the football club'. If the board are endorsing that the overriding priority is financial stability without accounting for the effectiveness of the football strategy then it won't be successful. The evidence is clear the turnover of managers for whatever reason official or unofficial. The recruitment of some players who are not good enough and the negative tactics employed. These are legitimate questions which have not been responded to hence the frustration. Btw good luck to BH and I was interested to hear his comment on the team being too structured. Let's hope we are more creative and more attacking and sign better quality if it doesn't happen.

Ps you can still be a shareholder in an old Devon village pub for £100 , but don't expect any return on your money , nor a message board to moan on!!
Good luck with the pub. Our village local closed 3 years ago and the heart was ripped out of the village. We raised £130K in written pledges in a similar time period only to fall just short of the required amount. It was bought by a developer who had every intention of re-opening it (apparently) but 2 1/2 years on from that very little has been done. The building is now a total eye-sore and directly opposite my house which makes it even worse!

What we learnt is that the make-up of the community committee is vital. Ours was made up of retired folk who had the time to give (two of whom were in their 80's). The other problem was that the £130K in pledges soon dried up when they had to stump up the cash.

The model will not achieve promotion given the decision making. That is now becoming clearer. The board members have created themselves a closed shop for decision making and its clear that factions are forming between the 2 boards as people indulge their own self importance.

Despite yesterdays arse covering meeting prior to the MTM event the rifts are clear.

Some of the questions asked were lightweight but that was because the initial statement and timeline of events had been explained which doused the flames.
Richard Ulrich tried to question Gavin aggressively over the Data protection issue which kept the trust board in the dark and whilst he had stated that no one on the trust board knew what was going on Pete Jones admitted that he had been informed last Sunday.
The question over the Barrow contract was asked again for clarification as to when it was signed. (Contracts had been exchanged prior to the Slops fiasco.)
Few took the mike to praise the boards efforts. I applaud their efforts but can't stand the "Love in." they are after all doing the job they want to do and it's an honour to serve the club.
Question asked regarding the need for a CEO. Board suggested that £70k better spent on football team.
Despite the furore on this board and on social media it was never going to be an explosive meeting as most trust members still support the ownership model and the boards.

It's all rumours, opinion and some fact.

Personnally I enjoy reading comments - I take them with a pinch of salt. I post stuff that I read or hear about or comment on postings - my posts are probably as much rubbish as some of the other information.

Some of the posts do sometimes get a bit personal - but it's peoples choice to right such stuff and yes there's moans and groans - but come on , we all support the mighty reds, most of us will try and get to every home game, and if you cut us open , we bleed red - ha ha

The goings on over the last few days are very strange. I dont question the commercial running of the club, but we do seem to get things wrong on matters of communication and some aspects of football management.
Mills - most, if not all of us supported this appointment - we can't blame the board
Keates/S R - how could we have prevented them from being poached from us - not the boards fault
Barrow - now that is a fiasco and is embarressing for the club and the managment
Hughes - we are all surprised , but hopefull.

So keep posting and see you all at the game
COYR
An excellent post that in my opinion sums up the views of the vast majority of Wrexham fans.

There have been some strange goings on and hopefully the Boards will have learnt from their mistakes and address matters in a more open manner in the future.

Also, perhaps some posters may reflect on their actions as well, if their views opposing the board are questioned by another RP member, they immediately revert to calling them out and they become arse lickers etc etc and reference was also made to corruption within the board - so disappointing!

I have no links to any board members but I do respect anyone who puts hours and hours into any club or organisation on a voluntary basis.

Hopefully three points tomorrow and a performance can begin to get us back on track.
