    Another great piece. Thanks

    One fact you may want to check is that Rob Bickerton was a Director of Shrewsbury Town FC.

    As far as I know he was the Chief Executive but not a director.

    Sorry to Knit-pick.

    The majority of fans, or Wrexham or otherwise, don’t care about any of this. They only care that Wrexham are fourth in their division and in a rich vein of form.

    That’s absolute rubbish. The majority of Wrexham fans are deeply concerned about this and have been for some time.

    Of course, the form we’re showing at the moment is nice and reminds us exactly what we stand to lose but to say we don’t care about the off-field developments suggests you know absolutely nothing about us.

    This person SV operates like the Mafia, if he wants to be involved then you can bet 100% HE WILL BE INVOLVED.

    He will control everything through his underlings but keep behind the scenes as he has to, be very afraid.

    I BEG every concerned Wrexham supporter & Chester City & Widnes RL supporters to travel to Barrow AFC ( All these clubs were ruined by SV )this weekend to show the FA that they are totally opposed to this take over.

    solidarity & unity against parasites.

    Ian, well when you beat us, mainly to paying more money to professional footballers, I hope you enjoy it and it distracts you from the life-or-death struggle your club is currently in for a few moments.

    Your problem is that you think it can’t get any worse and you can’t fall any further.

    As a Wimbledon fan I can tell you that it can.

    Good luck in getting your ground back.

    I think the vast majority of Wrexham fans are more than aware of how things can,and if this deal goes through ,almost certainly will get worse.
    We have seen the plight of out neighbours Chester but in their case they had the benefit of the local council owning the ground.
    Under this plan we will have nothing but empty promises from people whose motives must be considered suspect.

    Rob Bickerton was managing director at Shrewsbury Town. However, I believe I am correct in saying that it was purely an executive role and never had anything more than a token holding in the football club company.
