Whilst I fully sympathise with Rect...sorry Wrexhams problems. I still get flashbacks to Gary Bennett scoring against us at home in 1997 in the dying minutes and to them beating u slate on again in 2003. The memory of Bennetts smug rat-like face & jubilant wrexham fans leaping around the Station End quickly kills off any urges I may have to attend any 'fans-united' style days/events, plus I would love to play them against next season given that Chester/Kiddie are current local rivals at the moment.
My hats most definately off to Denis Smith tho. He's doing a remarkable job in very difficult circumstances-just think he could have taken over here after King was sacked, wonder what would have happened in the long run if we had chosen him instead of Ratcliffe?
...............Did I tell you about the time I met Spencer Whelan?
Still will never forget him scoring his second goal against us 94-95 in a 2-2 draw at GM and Bennett stood over by the Wakeman stand to acknowledge some jeers and I shouted "Bennett" to which he came over towards me , I then said "You make have scored 2 goals, but you are still a fooking wayanchor" to which he grinned and knodded! Brilliant
Cheers TBH. that is bloody awful. Laughing at your rivals is all well and good but this is just a plain scandal, it has nothing to do with Wrexham Football Club. I laughed my tits off at Leeds going down, as it was all down to poorly managed football matters (well, mainly). I also never wanted them to fold and didn't think they would. This is theft. I feel really sorry for them. I wouldn't want this to happen to anyone.
Not too good friends I hope. The whole thing stinks. I don't know how these people sleep at night, they are essentially robbing from nearly every member of the community, but because they aren't actually going into their houses, instead using legal means, they are accepted members of society. Legally right and morally right are, as usual, far from the same thing.

Important point to note though is that Guterman never owned the club, but simply was a front for Hamilton and then sorted out the freehold on the Racecourse for his buddy at a 'nice price'.
Right, I meant became chairman, didn;t realise he had never owned it, so Hamilton was thw shady background figure all along?
That means Wingrove must have known Hamilton was there all along?
This is the same Bill Wingrove who said "What exactly is Mark Gutterman guilty of?"
Shall we make a list?
Oh Yeah, McKie, I didn;t add that Wrexham were placed in Administration because Hamilton is now refusing to sell the club unless he can make a profit of something like £1.5 million on the club itself, whose debts are now well into the millions
