Was one of my favourite episodes from both series to be fair. Had a good mix of football, fly on the wall stuff, back stories with players and fans. Didn’t realise what Forde was going through, an emotional watch.

I don't know Shaun Winter, and I appreciate some might and might not like him. because of some first hand knowledge. I have no issue with him being in the show tbh. Whilst I don't know him I know plenty of people like him, and have seen lots like him at Wrexham games. He's just representative of a type of bloke.

Really. good episode. As others have said its a good mix of the personal stuff and football. Great (and emotional) focus on Forde and his wife, amd a nice little bit about Luke Young. Hopefully more episodes like this to come.

Finding some of the hate for him weird, people change, clearly regrets some of the stuff he previously said, is trying to get off the booze, good luck to him.

I was fine with that section in isolation, but to me it felt a bit tagged on and didn’t really fit the episode narrative.

I’ve got no reason to be jealous of Shaun Winter, don’t know the bloke, never met him & whatever he does doesn’t effect me BUT he does come across like a knob & he apparently is one too. You get the heartbreaking story of Forde and his family & then you randomly get him on there? Don’t really get it.

Other than him I enjoyed the episode. Liked how everyone spoke about Young, fully deserved. Top man & one player that will be hard to see leave

Good episode but discordant mix between the Forde story and the Wince story. If you have to have the latter then fine but just do it in a different episode. A shame.

Don't get the hate. Community means everyone, knob or legend.

Shaun Winter certainly seems to divide opinion. I've never met the bloke, so have got no knowledge of him personally, but if he's genuinely trying to make positive changes in his life then good luck to him. He also seems like a good dad too.

When they flashed back to him meeting Rob and Ryan on the Turf in season one he looked completely off his nut. Eyes like dinner plates.

While i have nothing against the word "f*****g" and often use it myself to emphasize something, I wonder if the (rather dreary?) repetition of it in the dressing room does anything to inspire the lads to ever greater heights of human endeavour?
