It’s Bryan With a Why

Can appointing  managers more often than Theresa May tries to reopen a negotiation be a good thing? It certainly doesn’t look good, and doesn’t reflect well on our long-term planning, something which we appeared to be getting right since the departure of Gary Mills. However, there’s also a possibility that this latest drama could be a good thing. Like the discovery of penicillin, we might … Continue reading It’s Bryan With a Why

Whoever Gives Sam A Scarf, That’s His Home

So, should Shrewsbury be worried right now? They’ve just appointed a manager with 22 league games under his belt as a manager, all at non-league level. He’s got off to a good start, but quite apart from the obvious risks involved when you draw a conclusion from a tiny sample size, results don’t tell you everything. I need to establish some context first, in case … Continue reading Whoever Gives Sam A Scarf, That’s His Home

Jordan White Gives Dean Keates a Nudge

Dean Keates has made it clear that his squad are playing for contracts, and Jordan White has come up with a cunning ploy to appeal to his manager by becoming two players in one!

An Open Letter to Wrexham County Borough Council

This letter was published on February 15th 2017 in The Leader I’d always assumed that people run for public office because they are driven by a desire to protect what is precious about their community. Your actions over the last few years have made me doubt that assumption. I hope you will prove me wrong in the coming months by pursuing a resolution to the … Continue reading An Open Letter to Wrexham County Borough Council

Ignorance is Bliss on BT Sport

Last Tuesday was an historic night for the club as we took up a 99 year lease on The Racecourse, but one of the biggest rounds of applause in a packed Catrin Finch Theatre had nothing to do with the ownership of the ground. Instead it was a reaction to an attack on our model of fan-ownership, carried out on national television at our own … Continue reading Ignorance is Bliss on BT Sport
