Really nice episode but you do get the impression that there was supposed to be an episode for the play off final and they’ve had to throw this in as a back up. Enjoyable all the same.

Really good episode, enjoyed that.

Definitely a filler but an enjoyable episode all the same.

One that resonates with so many of us. You get taken to your first game by your Dad, get hooked, start going with your mates as teenagers, start going with your own kids in your 30s, then your Dad is no longer there and the void is field by your kids and the club is the constant. Rinse and repeat. The cycle of life.

Sorry to hear that. Spoken to quite a few who have said similar. Hold onto the memories mate.

The Family connection formally of us is a huge part of being Wrexham fans

My dad took me to my first game back in 1981 - the 2nd repay against West Ham . My mum was terrified - lots of trouble at games back in those days , but Dad got the tickets anyway . It was freezing ( it being January ) , so mum got me dressed in pretty much every item of clothing I had back then - 2 or 3 jumpers , couple of pairs of trousers and god knows how many pairs of socks - I could barely move - certainly couldn't bend my arms .

We stood in the paddock just by the dugouts Dad held me up on the railings for most of the game so I could see . I remember seeing Trevor brooking coming crashing into the fence right infront of me, his face pressed up against it ....... and then I remember Dixie scoring .... what a night . I've still got there programme and it's one of my most vivid childhood memories .

Fast forward a few years to when I was old enough to go by myself and Dad and I sat together for years - I loved the football , win or loose , but loved being there with Dad even more .

As I've got older , Dad hasn't got to the Racecourse as much as he used to and then for the last few years it's been hard for him . He sufferd with cancer and had a battle with that for a quite a while and that kept him away from football and a lot of other things ... ultimately , the wonderful people at The Christie managed to cure him - one of the best days of my life hearing that news ...... the slight downside was that the treatment left his immune system pretty battered for a while and not long after that , Covid arrived. So from that point on , he pretty much went into total isolation with mum and we didn't really get to see them for over 2 years .

He's fine now , but mixing with big crowds was something the docs said was probably not a good idea , so again I couldn't really get him down to The Racecourse .. he's been listening to Marc Griffiths commentary instead ...


Then a few week ago, he was due to come over to our place on thew weekend of the Torquay match . I said to him ' Dad , why don't you take my season ticket and take David ( my son ) to the game - I can drive you there and I'll sit in the car park and listen on the radio ' ..... wasn't really expecting him to say yes, but he said ' I'd love that, but can't you get a ticket '. So then I had some work to do to try and get an extra ticket .... thankfully , I managed to get one

... anyway , to cut an already long story short thanks to some really wonderful people at the club , we managed to swap out seats so the 3 of us could sit together

... first time the 3 of us have ever been able to get to see Wrexham at the Racecourse together ... it was magical - what a performance , what a game .... Dad loved it .. my boy loved it ... I loved it & I got to see it all with them both

it's up there now with my very best memories at The Racecourse

When I heard Rob taking in the first episode about going to games with his Dad ... not remembering the games themsleves , but just remembering being with his Dad ... I 100% knew what he meant and how he was feeling .......and this episode just underlined how special these times are , sharing amazing days with those that mean most to us .


...great episode this one ...

... sorry for the sentimental outpouring in this post .... UTST

But it developed into a bigger story of the love between the town and the club being passed on from father to son. That happened to me and my brother, so of course it resonated strongly with me.
The comments from the woman (was she a psychologist or psychiatrist?) seemed initially to be slightly derogatory but did yield some interesting insights that I hadn't considered before, but I certainly do not agree with everything she said.
A bit of an emotional rollercoaster at times.
Having said all that, and at the risk of being unfairly accused of being woke, or a snowflake, it all felt a bit 'out of it's time'.
Historically, football support has been dominated by men and still largely is, but I felt this episode missed the opportunity of addressing the burgeoning interest of women and girls in the game and with Wrexham in particular. Several of the participants in the docuseries are female with a clearly strong, and arguably equal, attachment to the club. I hope we get to see that side of the story told in season 2
I did find the psychologist bits odd, wasn’t sure if she was serious about guys playing and going to sport so they can touch each other. She sounded a bit like Welshwayne talking about toxic masculinity
