I cannot fathom why we couldn’t get enough names for the EGM and over 200 names for this. I rejoined the trust to add my support for the EGM. If only others had done the same.

I’m really angry at the way this club is being run and want changes.

Totally baffling given extent fans went with Hamilton and Gut.Arguably gates higher now ,last month apart, so either apathy or serious ignorance problem. Club on the abyss.

The anonymity of the people proposing the EGM probably put some off. We're always being advised by experts not to hand over details like the ones asked for (email/user name, membership number and date of birth) to random strangers on the internet. Useful info for hackers.
Or maybe some just worried we'd be swapping one clique for another.
Also a lot of people I've spoken to hadn't even heard of the EGM thing.

An online petition at change.org is possibly seen as a less problematic way of making your feelings known even if deep down there's no real expectation that it will do the trick.

I can't think of any other business where a customer's only way of getting improved service is to become involved with the organisation's internal politics. A few people I know have just voted with their feet instead (and feel sorry for the likes of me who keep attending).
All this is happening when there's a lot of mistrust towards politicians generally and a fair bit of election fatigue around.

It's not fair to say fans are apathetic. People just don't know how to to about getting genuine change. And there's a lot of toxicity around in general. Football used to be an escape from it. Now vitriol seems to be embedded in the club. It's just no fun anymore.

You're right, fans aren't happy, they are not apathetic, and are desperate for something to turn around the fortunes of the club.

When someone stands up, and proposes an alternative way forward fans will have something to consider and maybe get behind.

Until that happens few will support removing the current set up with no realistic and workable alternatives prepared to take over.

re. egm i can only vouch for myself and the people i know quite well who have made their feelings known, all people i know are dissatisfied with the trust run model, all of them myself included have decided to abstain from matches, only a couple knew about the egm, the majority did not even know that the trust/board have instigated stipulations or rules etc making it difficult to remove them without the bollocks of attending meetings and voting etc out of all these many people only two are trust members.
no one i know is prepared to stand up in a crowded room and denounce the board/trust with all eyes directed towards them, no one i know wants to be a member or to vote etc, they do all want to support Wrexham fc though.
We the fans have been stitched up, we supplied a group of people with the funds to, as we thought, save Wrexham fc, i know directors have put some personal money in and i dont know how much but i do know the bulk of the funds supplied to ensure the clubs survival came from ordinary football fans who trusted these people.
The powers that be have held a coup, they have taken control of the club and made a whole host of rules and regulations and made them legal making it nigh on impossible to remove them, they are no less than the bolsheviks in russia or castro in cuba and they have treated us supporters with contempt, they have thought that they could pull the wool over everyones eyes but there has been dissent and there are many who saw the cracks and problems developing and who voiced their concerns, only to be shot down and ridiculed, those of you supporters who have blindly given support to the board when bad decisions have been made are just as much to blame for our current predicament for it is you that gave the board the self belief of being all powerful,and those of you who shot down the dissenters and used emotional blackmail to silence the complainers you are as much to blame for our situation.
now look at us, everyone i talk to thinks we are down and out and unless something happens we are going down but you, the ones who have supported the inadequate board, where are you now, are you too embarrassed to admit you were wrong, for it is you who should be voting for an egm, you have assisted in the demise

you should do your research, most of the clubs mentioned above have assets attractive to an investor.... our club has nothing except its name. One could consider the fan base as an asset but it is deeply divided with some advocating not going to games... christ if supporters arn't prepared to pay £19 to see their club play and survive who on the outside is going to GIVE millions to the club for no financial return. if there was someone out there willing to put money into a football club any club they will do their research and know clubs like ourselves will welcome them with open arms, it doesn't need begging letter sending out!

the club is trying to attract outside investment and there have been a number of sponsorship deals recently, but sadly they haven't found a money tree...

sign the petition or not it a personal choice, in reality its not going to make a difference but may make the ones signing feel good about them selves, when in reality they can't be bothered to turn up at meetings, pose questions and put proper pressure on the elected officials....
