I haven't seen anyone say we should sell to any tom, dick or harry Tom. Although I'm seeing many people suggesting every potential private owner are bad news.

Or we need to consider even more recent experience or "history".

Is anyone saying every potential private owner is bad news?

I think posts about conmen, crooks and egotists and history are clearly saying that.

If you say so, I'm not sure. If we are to invite offers for investment in the club, then we do have to beware that crooks, conmen and egotists may well come circling. Nothing wrong with being wary, but that's not the same as being dismissive of any potential investor.

Indeed, we should be wary.

However crooks and conmen would seem less likely now as the carcass has already been picked pretty clean.

Depending on your viewpoint there's an argument that we already have egotists.

I am afraid a large percentage would tick at least one of those boxes with the egotist one way out in front.

For arguments sake lets look at what criteria we would want from a private owner. Worth at least 50 million cash and prepared to put at least 5 million in to the club over an extended period. A Wrexham supporter who lives locally, does not have a problem ego and has a good knowledge of the football industry.

Only a few of the privately owned 92 league Clubs have a decent owner. For my money these would be Liverpool, Norwich, Middlesboro, Rochdale, Accrington and maybe Fleetwood and Bristol City. A lot of those are long term supporters of the club they own. Please feel free to add to the list.


I used the term you quoted but also posted the above. So I think you are clearly wrong.

I am on the other side of the debate but am willing to come up with criteria for a private owner and list those clubs that I think are well run. So far the only reply I have had is from Philsanalki who said that any new owner did not have to be a Wrexham fan !
