Well, he served his purpose of getting a reaction.

The author is well known for winding fans of other teams up, but at the end of the day it's all done as a bit of fun. Anyone who has read one of his match reports will know to take anything he writes with a very large pinch of salt.

Safe journey to all those travelling tomorrow, hope you enjoy the day but not the result.

We’ve looked on, as the likes of Crawley, Fleetwood, FGR, Sutton, Stevenage, and more, have gone up - why shouldn’t we at least have a Chance of our day in the sun?

We were well supported with gates of around 4000 even when we’d have been better off if our seats weren’t facing the pitch - we still turned up to try to support whatever donkeys were on show, to generate money for the club.

If, and it’s a very big If, we manage to get even one promotion during R&R’s tenure, I for one won’t have any tinge of guilt that we had financial assistance. Not many fan owned clubs have enjoyed success, we all need a helping hand at times.

Enjoy the ride, ignore the jealousy. COYR. And thanks R&R.
Well said, Mr W - a reasoned, and rational, summary of our situation.

Well it started badly, it tailed off a little in the middle & the less said about the end the better! But apart from that, excellent.

I thought it was ok... its clearly written in jest, picking the comments most levelled at us recently and building a narrative around them.

Its meant to poke fun, and i would be 100% certain all the other previews he writes about other clubs are just as 'insulting'.

Its fan banter, the takeover has just given more ammunition to the back and forth.

I’ve read a few before, clearly a little bit of a wind up and fun. I’m sure he done ones on Wrexham before? Don’t think anyone needs to get too hot under the collar.

I quite liked it and can't see anything in it for people to take offence with.

Harmless fan banter to me and long may it continue between us and decent fans of other clubs.

Too true.

I once walked out of Mr Steele’s after a lovely plaice, chips, mushy peas, bread & butter, and pot of tea and saw the culture that is Cleethorpes: some lout had disposed of a half-eaten tub of ice cream and there was a definite furry top to it!

Enjoy the game but wear your wellies as it will be very wet with lots of sheep leaping about.

well bless the inbred yellow bellies, they can't dis Lincoln as they are out of sight of them now, and Boston will be zipping up past them shortly so have a go at us eh!

At least we play in our own town............ the Divvy stadium is closer to Wrexham than Blunder Park is to grimsby now toodle off and grumble to your other half duck (could be his mother/sister/wife - probably all 3 at once) in Claxby Pluckacre and let us concentrate on our sheep

Then again they have a Miami Beach and a New York in t'shire, so who are we to comment on such a lovely place - and don't get me started on the miles and miles of sandy beaches they have, Moggs Eye is a particular favourite (just don't get near the water!)

PS thought that was quite amusing an article to be honest
