    If the Vaughans are involved then I would agree the Stockports fans are probably the only ones who could act to remove the danger. As a Wrexham supporter I wish that this is not true but fear the worse and would urge Stockport fans to dig into this and fight for the club, again. It’s a hard thing to do time and time again but you get good crowds and should have enough fight left in the tank to rid your club of such undesirables plus you’ll have more allies from other clubs.

    It’s a difficult situation for us, as the official stance is that Vaughan isn’t involved with the consortium we’ve no way of proving otherwise. The ‘scouse mafia’ is certainly in effect, but all we have right now are empty suspicions.

    The matter is further complicated by the County fans, many of whom have basically had enough. Last season there was a vocal and growing minority who would much rather we’d been liquidated at the end of 09/10 and restarted, a la Chester FC, rather than continue on as the miserable, broken shambles we’d become. That same minority don’t care about the Vaughan effect, because they’d rather we went out with a bang than a whimper.
