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....
A long term lease is an asset.

One's posed the question a few time s and more recently, still a noisey few vehemently against an investment or in this case a full sale.

Somebody has been touch with the WST looking into the mechanics of a buyout, I wonder why that hasn't leaked like everything else? No firm proposal as far as I'm aware has been put forward so far, so it can't be the NDA.

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.
How many people are suggesting ‘removing the current set up’? The EGM specifically WASN’T aimed at that. The call for ‘organisational change at board level’ (which again clearly stated they WEREN’T suggesting a complete replacement of board members) could have led to the people from the WST board currently shadowing club board members to take over their roles. I would assume these people are ‘realistic and workable alternatives’, otherwise it makes me wonder what the point of them shadowing is!!

to gaz-wxm i do not intend to insult or agravate anyone but the problems we are facing is the result of some points you have raised, for example; fans, as you say can not be bothered to pay £19, you are right, myself included, my own reasoning is that to attend matches is to endorse the trust/board which i feel i can not do but i also agree with other abstainers that the standard of football has steadily dropped and entertainment value is very low add to that our poor results and hence people are not going to part with money.
There is certainly no indication that the board/trust are welcoming investment quite the reverse in fact, if any business wants to attract investment it does not deliberately put obstacles in place or even ignore offers, the board/trust may very well attempt to attract sponsorship but it seems to me they are actively opposing anyn other form of investment that would decrease their power base.
The sponsorship deals that have already been attained, while very very welcome, clearly are insufficient to keep a football club afloat especially if you consider the input of those not being paid for their services which other clubs have to pay for.
and then on to meetings, posing questions and elected officials, the average fan is not interested in meetings and voting and elected officials and here lies the real reasons behind our demise it is the elected officials who have orchestrated the gradual decline of Wrexham fc, it is the dependance upon ridiculous political protocol that is the real reason of decline, this club needs outward investment, it requires a ruthless business person overseing paid employees who if not good enough are dispensed with

Maybe an option would be for a mass walkout during a home game. Buy your ticket so club doesn’t suffer financially but at an agreed time, anyone who wants to, walk out of the stadium. If board refuse to engage THEN stop paying to watch.
A mass walk out with media coverage........... grab the attention wouldn’t it?
