Yes, bring in an investor and you’ll rise through the leagues -NOT!

Bury have already gone, Bolton will be relegated, Macclesfield are deep in debt and being sued by their players. Orient came tumbling down after being taken over by an Italian Del-boy, now Oldham are staring at administration and a 10 point deduction.
Even if we go down, we still have a functioning and viable club
Typical happy clapping comment in support of continued managed decline .When will you realise that the club has been on a continuing decline for years whilst other clubs have come from no where and been successful and continue to shine in the EFL whilst we sink into oblivion?
I assume you will be happy to be playing in the Evostic league providing we have a functioning and viable club ? well I for one wont be !!!

Sadly it has been statistically proven by the number of years we have been out of the football league that we have been unable to succeed on the pitch without an investor.

It isn't rocket science though.

Why would we think we would succeed when we aren't on a level playing field with our competitors. The Wrexham DSA knows a lot about level playing fields and the importance of access to all and the problems that occur when amenities are made available for some but not for others.

Well, that is in effect our current predicament as a football club. We are not on a level playing field, so are unable to compete and be successful on the pitch. The clubs with the much bigger budgets and ambition to match it, have all been promoted in recent years back into the football league.

Currently our ambitions are curtailed by our lack of serious investment.

Chicken and the egg. Who comes first ?

The ideologically left leaning advisors to the WST are causing the decline through wilful blindness. Until the political views of the few are separated from the running of our club there will be no reverse of the decline.

When it comes to playing budgets over the past few years, ours has been bigger than most in our league. The difference is that our decision makers have made the wrong decisions (players, managers etc) and these guys are still in post.

What is your definition of success?
Football league membership?
Promotion?
A positive bank balance?
A production line of big money transfers?

In reality, very few clubs are successful. If you’re not the Champion club, or a promoted team, your a failure. I was looking forward to promotion this season, now I’d just settle for league survival.


Success is relative. This teams play in the leagues above us, so all more successful than us.

The two pertinent examples are Tranmere and Luton who played against us not long ago. That is what real success would look like for us.

In the short term playing league 2 football would be success.

Out of curiosity, I contacted Supporters Direct's new face, the FSA (I am a member), and asked how many clubs were 100% fan owned.

I received a reply stating that they are currently compiling the statistics on the level of fan ownership within "their" 39 Community Owned Clubs. They will send me an accurate figure in due course. I look forward to their reply!
