Well one thing is for sure. It will take more than a change of manager to sort that team out. They can try to change the training and fitness levels, but unless the new bloke can 'grow' his dwalf midfielders (average height 5ft 8in) nothing is going to change. Being a 'sacking club' i don't think they will be able to sign a manager without giving assurances about certain parts of their contract. Mills will be getting a fare wedge too. Some of their deluded fans are already talking about charging up the table into the playoffs. The problems with that team run deeper than just sacking the manager. They need to have a clear out of players, which they cannot afford to do. They will need to then sign lots of players to fill the gaps. In short, the goats are in a bit of a pickle rolleyes.gif

If you drop I to this league you need to what we Bristol Rovers did and make sure you get out as soon a season possible otherwise you're in it for a long time. Wrexham, Lincoln and Stockport are example of if you don't get out straight away you're in it forever.

They off-loaded players in the summer because they couldn't afford to renew their contracts, Manny Smith being a good example . This was brought about I presume because the owners of the ground want £200K a year for the ground rental. Despite their increased crowds (they will drop as results don't improve) they need to reduce their playing budget to pay the rent. They are now burdened with a pay-off for dumping their under performing manager. They don't need a new manager they need a miracle worker.

Stockport wish they were in it forever! Unfortunate they've lost their way entirely!

Another one bites the dust biggrin.gif You would of thought they'd learn by now, no idea what the list of managers will be like, can't imagine many will want to go there, the new manager is stuck with the same players and has the same budget, that place is a poison challace.

I think they will go for Brabbin you know. He will be sorry of course because expectations are high at Wrexham. With this 'billy big b*ll*cks' attitude of their fans who continue to be of the opinion that they are too big for this 'tinpot league'. I doubt that they can challenge for promotion now or in the future. Poor team for one thing, and a crumbling decaying stadium which needs loads spending on it which is costing them top dollar to rent

Confirmed at their meeting last night that the budget at the start of the season was exactly the same as last season, in fact as of now it's actually in excess of last season.

They're an utter shambles.

As this sneaky peek at Wrexham's budget forecast for 2016/17 shows, the reliance on matchday income -in particular the projected 'Racecourse income' (which I assume previously went to the uni) makes it clear the club could not afford any significant drop in attendances, functions etc. Given the threats of boycotts etc it was only a matter of when not if. The first team costs (they are not just the playing budget but also includes other associated costs) have apparently increased in real terms but decreased as a projected percentage of total costs-

Mills recruited very poorly in the summer and hasn't replaced the creative talent he lost, having put a lot of pressure on himself with a big turnover.

The question mark over Macca for me in closed season was could he recruit. He backs himself in terms of coaching and kept on most of last years squad in the belief that he could make them better players, but a managers role is a lot more than that. However, with the likes of Akintunde, Roberts, Vassell, Horwood and Hudson I would say he has been pretty successful in this aspect as well.

Let's hope the new manager builds the team around that midfield dynamo " Agent Rooney!" rolleyes.gif

How Canadian Exile can continue as a Mod when he makes comments like that is beyond me. Disgusting, should be banned.
