A great listen but I don't think Spencer should be anywhere near the new regime. Its time for a fresh start with new ideas!

That was a really enjoyable listen.

He's taken a fair amount of stick these last few years ( some warranted, some not) but I think he deserves an awful lot of credit for the way he has handled both the deal and himself during this takeover.

I'd be amazed if he's not asked to stay on in some capacity.

He could be Wrexham’s “Cricket” character from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia!

Hasn’t he done what he was tasked to do. Basically keep the club competitive (admittedly dropped off last few seasons), debt free & therefore attractive to outside investors.
No one agrees with everything he did but it was the same with Churchill - at the end of the day he got the job done, like him or loath him.
Now, the future beckons.......

I agree with that. We all are very frustrated about the football side of things. However the fact we are debt free (which seems to be one of the attractions to R and R) is an achievement and should be recognised.

Debt free but wasted 2 milion quid ,hopefully the next 2 million is spent more wisely by a proper ceo instead of the joke set up we have had to endure for years.

I listened to the whole interview and thoroughly enjoyed it

I've been one of Spencer's biggest critics and IMHO with good cause but he comes across really well here.

What is apparent is how much he loves the club. He knows it inside out and is proud of its history.

However, what is also apparent is that he's completely out of his depth running a football club.

He doesn't have the knowledge or experience and that has showed in the decision making.I'm not disputing his effort and I'm sure he thought he was doing the right thing but there's a reason it's gone wrong.

The other thing he lacks is time. Being a full time HR manager at a factory does not dovetail with being Chairman of a football club. Our HR manager works 11 hours a day and I know how stressful that job is so to run a football club as well is not possible and it shows. Something has to give.

Moving forward I can see Spencer wanting to be involved somewhere in the new regime and in a way I'm finding it hard to begrudge him that but another part of me wants him slung out on his ear for the mess he's made !

I see R&R wanting him on board somewhere for his local knowledge but pleeeeease keep him away from the operational side if the club.He had his chance and royally screwed it up.

I think R&R will want all of the key positions to be full time so he wil be relegated to a minor role

WST Chairman....... no problem.

What happened to the South Walian guy who attended a wst meeting and was very keen to get involved in the running of the club? He travelled to Wrexham and back to South Wales on the very same night.
