    I read somewhere that Wrexham will need to find more sponsors for next season as their concessions from NL will be over. They will have to dispense with 5 of their best paid footballers. I am sure it won’t be a problem for the owners, Disney can always find a few million tucked down the couch somewhere.

    Their current sponsors won't need to be looking down the back of the settee for a few dollars more. That's simply because there is no special concession within the FFP for NL clubs getting promoted into the EFL. Wrexham are subject to the same FFP regime as we are and the rest of the khazi league. And I'm sure Wrexham will already understand that.

    There seems to be a bit of hatred on here to Parky and i saw old Ricc from the old board having another go on Facebook. But he did the business for us and gave us at least one season which was up there as being one of the best in our history. I would welcome him back every time

    Hatred?
    You need to go on the Wrexham forum….Some calling for him to go if not autos this season. It’s like they have a sense of entitlement because of their , “ We can buy our way out of this division” b/s .

    An awful lot of their new found support are naive to say the least . Their owner is getting slagged off because of one tweet, yet it’s him trying to buy them success. With Parky, who has no plan B and Shaun Harvey pulling the wool over the owners eyes…I just wonder ?

    One final comment about Saturday, which may even cheer @Wxm80@Wxm80 up.

    When I visited earlier in the season, for the cup match, I drove straight up and back, so I didn't get a chance to visit the centre.

    So Saturday was my first proper visit to the City for over 15 years and I have to say it has vastly improved on the run down mess it was then. Plenty of independent shops (including a great selection of independent coffee shops) and the two pubs I visited were superb.

    In Saith Seren I even got the chance to order my beer in Welsh, as well as the chance to sample a couple of local ales. And in the Magic Dragon Taproom there was a great selection of their own ales, plus live entertainment with some very talented musicians.

    Oh, and after the match, I thought the queues for getting back on the train were very well organised.

    The referee was very poor, yes.
    • Lee kicked the ball away in the first half and didn't receive a card
    • Our players were elbowed on several occasions
    • Mullin consistently dived and never received a booking
    • Hayden should have received a red card for the penalty foul as the last man
    Also, the dropball should have been a foul anyway. Lee pushed Platt into our keeper, which should have been flagged as dangerous play and been a second yellow card.

    So yes, the referee was very poor and clearly favoured your side... But we still won. First half, yes, you played better than us, but the second half was the complete opposite, and we deserved the win. Could and should have been 0-2.

    Did you read this on a bag of magic mushrooms by any chance?
    Not sure if serious.

    Your early comments have been pulled to pieces on here and yes on your OWN forum , by some of your most sensible contributors, yet you haven’t responded to any of it ….why?

    I’ll pick ‘em out for you , just say the word. Don’t let that sense of entitlement eat you up. You will head for a big fall if you arnt careful.

    You are on a bad run, but don’t make silly unfounded illiterate excuses to excuse another defeat.

    Perhaps Magic Leeks?;)

    l assume that you believe that there is zero foundation in the comments you refer to? :unsure:

    A lot of football banter centres around, myth, legend and pure make believe. Some of it can be scarily prescient!

    Never got that or having a go at his style of play he gave us a club to be proud of and you knew that the majority of teams getting a result against us would have to battle for it

    If Dennis says it is incorrect, then it is. Please excuse my disinformation.

    But what does that actually mean in reality.
    Can the owners pump in millions and then are able buy the league?
    Could a club inflate their sponsorship deals to unreasonable levels to get around the FFP rules?
