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
The ‘mutual duty of trust and confidence’ is an Employment Law concept that every employee should be aware of. If your employer treats you badly your ‘trust and confidence’ in them is damaged. If they treat you really badly or do a series of unpleasant things you can leave and may have a claim for constructive dismissal. Wrexham Football Club are holding their AGM on … Continue reading Trust and Confidence
Things have come to a head. Opinions are hardening, and theories about our failure abound. So whose got the backbone for the fight? Do you think your views are in the majority? Great, then have the courage of your convictions and act, but beware, the rules have changed. Wrexham, and all other clubs, go through periods of failure. It’s not worth defending the current on-field … Continue reading Show Some Backbone
Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. Well here it is, the 150th year in Wrexham’s history. It’s the moment we’ve been looking forward to for…well, for 150 years! Or more honestly for the … Continue reading Logic’s on Wrexham’s side
I’ve been to two events recently that have convinced me our club is going in the right direction. The first was the Trust AGM, and the second was the friendly against Swansea U21s. They were both enjoyable affairs, both leaving me with many questions left unanswered, but also a sense that the club is packed with talented, determined people. AGMs are clearly not a majority … Continue reading The Ducks are Aligned
Wrexham have been extremely fortunate that previous and prospective custodians of our club, have been people of exemplary character. They’re the sort of people you would exclaim to; ‘Yes!, I will buy that second-car with the weld mark round the middle from you, and while I’m at it, do you do Payment Protection Insurance?” Many clubs have not been as fortunate as us, and it … Continue reading They’re Altogether Ooky
Excuse me Sirs, I wonder if I may have a few minutes of your time, so that you can ask me some questions? You read that right, I want you to ask the questions. If you take note of my opinions, and thoughts, I will feel that you value my contribution. If I feel you value my contribution I might keep contributing. If I feel … Continue reading Excuse me Sirs?
So, what does a man do when he has a train ticket to Braintree burning a hole in his pocket and no match to go to? There’s only one real option, a trip to see The Lions! Well, that was literally the only option as it was the only professional level match going ahead in London on Saturday thanks to the weather and the FA … Continue reading Support Millwall FC’s cause and do Wrexham FC a favour
Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. I’ve always been proud to support Wrexham, although I suppose that’s the default position for fans for their local town’s side. However, the WST’s takeover of the … Continue reading Wrexham v Woking: Britain’s First Autism-Friendly Game
Plenty of Wrexham fans are angry at the moment. I understand that, but their anger is being directed at the wrong target. Andy Morrell is the subject of most people’s ire. As I’ve previously suggested, I feel that making him the scapegoat is unfair, not to mention incredibly short sighted. It wasn’t so long ago that he was the best thing since sliced bread, and … Continue reading Misdirected Anger Doesn’t Help Wrexham
It’s a sign that you’re disappearing up your own backside when you start replying to your own blog post! Yesterday’s comments by Danny Wright on his departure to Forest Green certainly stirred up a hornet’s nest! The club have now responded, which is wise in the circumstances. Normally I’d rather a club wasn’t drawn into a “he said she said” sort of dispute, but if … Continue reading The Danny Wright Saga: The Board Speaks Out!
