Default Massive change needed.

This is not going to be a popular thread I accept that.

But who thinks we need an outside not connected to the club investigation into the club from top to bottom particularly at the Top table who are responsible for the state of this long gone great club on the footballing side of the fence?

Do heads need to roll on the board?
Do heads need to roll on the coaching side including the out of his depth manager?

Or who thinks everything is Hunky Dory at the club and just needs some small changes?

My personal view is something is very wrong in the ever increasing secret corridors of power.

I think the club needs major surgery right from the ground up, if change is not made then this club will never go up and our loyal fanbase are at breaking point.

Rumour is some American consortium (i don't know if true or just rumour) are looking to take over Yeovil.

Big question with this club being a sleeping medium giant and a supported club that outshines clubs far higher in the football pyramid nobody is interested in us, I expect the usual we have nothing worth investing in by the scared of private ownership because of past crooks, be we have to learn from what was mistakes by the club then as regards to these owners. Or accept the club will never go forward of the field a bit like the team.

You know that I know that and an increasing amount of others with eyes open to, but I would be interested to hear others honest views.

Say for sake of argument I agree, what are the alternatives? Where are the rich backers queuing up to buy us? And dont give me the "we havent put ourselves up for sale" argument as if someone genuinely wanted to buy/invest why wouldn't they approach the board and if the board unreasonably turn them down they can then go to local press and show the board up as unreasonable?

I just don't buy that there is a queue of potential owners of the non dodgy property developer variety that would invest if only they were asked.

Managed but critical change is required if we have any hope of getting back were we belong. We need new outside investment and a professional board of directors with a representative from the WST. The days of "hobby" board members must be over......we also need to cut our losses with Hughes and his management team....new investors will demand this anyway as they wont be prepared to accept a rookie and wont give him the time to cut his teeth in any event.

This is the problem mindset. We need to be welcoming to investors, not saying that if they want to invest they will jump through the hoops.

We need to make it clear ad explicit that we welcome investment and are willing to change our model.

Any truth in the Wrexham Fans FB page rumour that Spencer has walked away?

We need change but whether that means reducing the WST's involvement is not credible whilst they/us are the sole owner of Wrexham AFC.

Probably best to let the dust settle for a few weeks before a review begins. If there is one, who should do it?

BH has flunked his first season, but is it due to:

His lack of experience and inability;

Lack of resources, which resulted in a squad with lots of effort but little ability;

Or a combination of both.

In BH's defence, the expectations from Wrexham fans are far higher than most clubs at this level. Are our expectations too high? Should we lower them?

Personally, my requirement is to be entertained and promoted back into the FL. I think that is the Board's aim, too; unfortunately, for whatever reason, they seem unable to deliver.

Hypothetical question.
I am a businessman who is looking to invest in a football club. I can pump a few £million in every year. I don’t have any history/affinity to any club.
Being a businessman, what would I get for my investment of, let’s say £4 million in Wrexham AFC?
