We're already a dead duck......the Covid-19 pandemic just adds the final serving of orange sauce to the cooked bird!

Football generally bounces back. I remember reading an article years ago after Man City signed Steve Dalley for £1m. Football was in crisis with hooliganism, falling attendances and dilapidated stadiums. The gist of the article was that no club would ever pay £1m for a player again as football was not sustainable. I recall thinking what a load of old twaddle. Football always bounces back.

I expect football will survive.

Whether people will come back at Wrexham to watch it is another matter.

Football will bounce back. Fans will return to the Racecourse despite the manager, hierarchy and crap football.
How soon fans can attend will be another matter and leagues 1 & 2 plus non league clubs will find it difficult if not impossible to continue without match day revenue.

There will be an initial clamour to get back to the Racecourse because everyone has been unexpectedly starved of football.
I suspect though that the clamour will soon die a death when the reality of 'keatesball' hits home. That might take 10 minutes into the first match or a few games I don't think it'll be long.

Will they? 1200 down on average attendance since Keates returned

Many expressing they won’t be returning without changes

Fans don’t support the club home and away for 40+ years based just off poor results and bad performances

Indeed. What a truly abhorrent individual. The fact that he and his ilk own the club makes it worse.

Still, credit where credit is due, they have played the long game and have come out on top. They must be delighted with how it's gone.

Have to admit I am surprised how little comment there is on here about the Covid 19 effect on football. Not sure it has dawned on many that it is very unlikely the National League will resume anytime soon. My best guess would be January 2021 or August 2021.

The survival of the vast majority of clubs is at stake. Moaning about the WST or Keates does come across as a bit trivial compared to the threat the virus poses to Wrexham AFC. The club has got real problems who ever owns it unless can find a billionaire. Even the bloke who owns AFC Fylde is making big cuts and calling for a salary cap. He was worth an estimated 250 million before the pandemic ffs.

Is is frightening how bloody insular we have become !

The club is owned by Wrexham supporters. So are you saying that about everyone ?
