Wrecsam sounds like some drunk bloke on his stag do. Wrexham just looks good to me and represents the team I support.

It's about preservation of our identity, language and culture. Do we want to become like Cornwall, Manx, extinct languages Use it, fight for it, or lose it.
I don't want Wales to become Waleshire, West England.

I quite like Cornwall.

I think the ship sailed on all this in the 14th century? Have nothing against people speaking Welsh, but it's not going to change centuries of history.

Wasnt a nationalist who changed the name it was a coventry accented commercial director who put it to a vote.
