The only place you're going to find this information is on Facebook groups and Red Passion. As far as I know, these are not regular sources for agents/players.

If they are, then it's a miracle we've signed anyone at all
Well I do believe that agents, players, managers etc. are all put off by how incredibly poorly the club has been run. It speaks volumes that both the numbers and quality of our managerial applicants have dropped off a cliff.

I wasn't referring to the outside footballing world stopping us from competing more the lack of funds we'll have. Especially with a likely drop in season ticket sales

Solihull dont seem too concerned offering season tickets for £100

If a footballer is looking for security then Wrexham is certainly a more appealing prospect than other clubs in our league. I can't see there being any big spending owners this time around. Any chairman in the current climate would be torn to shreds for making an Adam Rooney style signing while staff are coming back from furlough.

I agree we have to ditch Darlington and start with a clean slate; but I trust Keates will sign some good players, even if he doesn't last the season.

The quality of players will be a real gamble - a player with a decent scoring record from September-March may have fallen behind with fitness since lockdown. This season, more than ever, we need to target players who are used to being at the top end of the NL, or local players who will play out of their skin for Wrexham.

Any repeats of signing players with records like JBB, Adam Barton and McIntosh should be stamped out. Keates had the nous to freeze them out, so that bodes well.
Surely its the opposite? The rate we go through mangers will be a huge concern for a player. They might sign for us under Keates and he might have walked or been sacked by Christmas. At this club its highly likely they'll finish the season under a different manager than the one they started the season with. Then they might get frozen out etc because the new manager doesn't rate them.

Not sure about Chairman not spending because they've brought staff back from furlough either. If they're back and being paid what' the issue? I think that's wishful thinking.

I wouldn't read too much into Keates freezing out JBB, Adam Barton and McIntosh either. Everyone could see they weren't good enough apart from Bryan Hughes of course. I remember the first time I saw McIntosh play and after about 10 minutes it was clear as day he was way out of his depth.

NWG re Private owners assisting.

Some private owners might dip into their own external funds. Hate to say there will be other Private owners prepared to walk away from a sinking ship.
Perhaps fan ownership might help Wrexham's situation, provided willing fans are prepared to dip into their pockets. but for how long?

There are still sums of money in both the club and trust accounts . Although those funds are no doubt being put under strain week by week.

One mystery could be funding being allocated for the lease costs and development of the Groves training site. Which pot is that coming out of? and how much?

Solihull sound like they just want to survive next season. 16 players released, offering 500 season tickets at £100 looks like they're hoping to plug a £50k funding gap asap. It's a gamble from Darryl Eales, in the hope the projected financial impact of Covid-19 will not be as bad as predicted.

They spent big again last year and missed the play-offs. This is a last roll of the dice for them.

Every club with private ownership in this league will either be taking unjustifiable gambles, or will be looking to spend next season covering their costs, before rebuilding for the 2021/2022 season. Unless they're lottery winners, they will all have bigger concerns regarding their own companies.

If they have to operate with 30% capacities, then that's another advantage in our favour (providing Drakeford follows suit! )

They're a tinpot club without a fanbse, so who cares.

Ben Gerring being linked with Wrexham.

Just read he caused controversy by going blackface at a end of season party 6 years ago, sort of player we love to sign.
