Skeletons In The Closet & Brinkmanship At Wrexham

Just Another Ordinary Week In Wrexham

As ever, it was down to the supporters of the club to get to what looks like somewhere near the bottom of what has been going on. It was probably too much to hope that, after a unanimous vote at their SGM last week, the Wrexham Supporters Trust would merely be allowed...

Is Wrexham FC Hanging By A Thread?

It has been a busy couple of days for sport in Wrexham, but there is very little positivity that we can take from the last forty-eight hours or so. More or less exactly as we were posting our last update, regarding the decision of the Wrexham owner Geoff Moss not to...

Wrexham FC: Sold Down The River?

That it wasn't a great surprise doesn't mean that it wasn't a disappointment. Geoff Moss, the owner of Wrexham FC, had the chance to do the right thing just the once before handing over ownership of the club to someone else, and he couldn't even manage to do that in...

Custodians, Fans And Ownership: From Arsenal To Wrexham

The Arsenal take-over looks like being a long way from the toxic take-overs of The Glazers and Gillett & Hicks. But, as SJ Maskell writes, custodianship is about doing more than saying and doing the right things and the real power in the game lies in the majority...

Fiddling As Wrexham Burns

The news that Wrexham Football Club has been served with a Winding Up Order by HMRC came as little surprise to anybody that has been paying much attention to what has been going on at the club over the last few months or so. Indeed, this relatively new aspect to a...

All of quiet on the Western front at the moment. Since we last reported on the subject of Wrexham, things have been comparatively quiet. This, however, is "quiet" by the standards of Wrexham AFC, and this means that, by the standards of most over clubs, it has...

Wrexham FC: Familiar Faces And Even More Familiar Divisions

It was recently noted by some wise soul that if the recent tribulations of Wrexham FC were to be suggested as the plot for a soap opera, they would be rejected as being too far-fetched. Any lingering doubts that these particular truths are stranger than fiction have...

Enter Stephanie Booth At Wrexham

The supporters of the club, as we mentioned on here last week, seem unlikely to be in favour of that and the one things that they need to be at present is unified. (12/01/2011) A constant theme of clubs where supporter protest has been successful in recent years has...

A Day Of Conflicting Rumours And Confusion At Wrexham

On a Saturday afternoon, it usually takes quite something to draw attention away from what has happened on the pitch. At Wrexham, however, the truth is proving to be stranger than fiction and so it was that on Saturday even a 7-2 home defeat at home...

The Return Of Stephen Vaughan? Wrexham Beware.

He's back, and it's almost if he never went away. The return of Stephen Vaughan onto our radar would be funny, if it weren't for the fact that his involvement in anything to do with football (or, indeed, rugby league) wasn't such a portent of doom for those likely to...
