    A very well written article, that accurately summarises the Wrexham Carousel. Well done Ian. Is it really too much to ask for some integrity and honesty from those who have the privelege of owning a community asset, that is held in such high regard by so many?

    Another fantastic article on this site. All I ever see in main stream media is articles about Man U or the Premier League title race, neither of which have been interesting for some time. I will never buy another newspaper again.

    Super article, would just like to comment on the profits from the apartments Moss built on the land surrounding the Racecourse. I may be wrong but I believe the council gave planning permission on the basis that profits rent from the apartments would be for Wrexham FC. Apparently Moss has is already making over half a million per annum and has kept every penny. If true, this is more than enough to pay HIS tax bill.

    Excellent piece of reportage that we will never see in our local press (Evening Leader, Daily Post), unfortunately the wider public in North East Wales and Wrexham supporters beyond will remain ignorant to the facts involved in this depressing saga. Keep up the good work. PS Booth should not be allowed anywhere near our club, she’s got more mouth than money and not welcome.

    Wrexham Football club, a club with one of the proudest histories in the lower divisions and an incredibly rich heritage, the oldest international football stadium in the world, with mighty giant killing victories over, arsenal,porto,newcasatle,to name a few,
    now reduced to a laughing stock due to the greed of egomaniacs.
    Thanks 200% for an intelligent and important piece.

    […] Fiddling As Wrexham Burns: By this time, the date was set for the club’s hearing at the High Court in London and the increasingly erratic Booth was stating that the WST should invest all of the money that it had built up over the years in the club in order to save it. They chose to turn this offer down. […]
