I completely agree - when we were in what is now the championship we had incredible crowds.

Bang on the money.

If this were a perfect world, Ormerod buries the shot at Wembley and we're already back in the EFL. But it's not and he didn't.

If this is the way back and more importantly- ensures the club's survival, then I am all in favor of it.

We have a big fan base to tap in to, so in many ways we're a more attractive investment proposition.
I disagree. Surely any investment above what you generate yourself is manufacturing a better standing in the football world.

If nobody invested into football clubs, there would be reduced competition. Using an example, why should Fleetwood not be allowed a team in the football league?

i was side on to that attempt at Wembley, if he fluffed it, it would of gone in, but he caught it perfectly and that's why he missed the goal.

Still see it now the cross coming in, and all the what ifs.

Ive certainly been one of those thinkers as I'm a dinasaur and look back with rose tinted glassesI guess. Trouble is,in the real present world,its investment that pushes clubs to success. Just look at any league. Where were City,Chelsea eg 20 years ago?
Salford Forest Green very recently. Harsh reality that football has changed. Not for the better,far from it,but thats the way it is I guess.

I agree. Massive catchment area that potentially could stretch along North Wales Coast.

Incredible is the word I can remember when we played the mighty Chelsea late on in our last season in 81-82 less than 4000 paying customers,I bet we did not average 6000 fans that season.

But our near extinction galvanised the fan base and credit to the WST members, we all contributed to keeping our club alive. That togetherness shaped the fan base plus we are in a different era of football now to the late 80’s when 1200 watched Wrexham playing Southend (or Hereford) on a cold December night.

Money is required to enable us to compete at the highest level in this league and those above. I have every confidence, that given a positive decision on exploring possibilities, the fan base have come too far, to allow anyone to undermine our efforts.
