How come the guy on the left looks like he’s had his face superimposed onto another body?

Never mind that, it’s the footwear and socks of the one in the middle that’s most disturbing. Of all the current trends that is the one that just sickens me. If I had worn that when younger I would have got the crap beaten out of me.

Looks like 15k per week still can’t buy you good taste.

The biggest tinpot aspect of Wrexham is that they cant see how they are just being used as a marketing vehicle. Whether you think its cringe or otherwise the reality is things like the above show that Wrexham have effectively sold themselves to be a marketing tool to be utilised whenever there's an appropriate product to tie in.

No doubt the thicker fans will lap all this stuff up while the more savvy will realise that football isnt the primary concern of the ownership anymore. The brand and how that can raise profiles of whatever shite needs selling this week is what's important.

As soon as the trends change, Wrexham will be dropped like a hot potato having literally sold its soul. You can't get anymore tinpot than that.

Interesting gif choice because I was just about to put:

No shit Sherlock. The marketing of the club is the whole point. Thats the mechanism they are using the grow the clubs brand awareness. Its what's brought us several million in income already. Ryan Reynolds in particular is a marketing guy, its his thing.

If things were as you say, that the club is a marketing tool to promote other things, then this would only work if the club had a large visible profile already.

Will it last? probably not, but its giving the club the impetus and financial injection to get to where it needs to be right now. It doesn't have to be a long term strategy, the long term stuff are the more tangible parts of the project that are following.

But I know you are always the smartest guy in the room so I'm sure you know best.

Wrexham are horrid capitalists. They should be more socialist, like us. As in, everyone pays tax thus financing our furlough and subsequently our squad improvement.

Wrexham's owners won't just drop them. They're too high profile. They'll want success attached to their name and the glory that comes with it.

The last thing they'll want is to be known as two knobheads who fucked a professional football club up, especially after making a song and dance about buying it.

The only stumbling block potentially will be will be when they get to say League One and they may see their route for growth restricted and the fairytale story may just seem a bit flat and they may lack the stimulation. Same with any at this level though (anything below The Championship tbh). Although Brentford and Bournemouth broke through quite well.

Wrexham being a tiny club is the essential part of the marketing strategy. If they had invested in a bigger club what they are trying to do wouldn't work. You're tinpottedness is part of the charm and why it stands out more.

Using Wrexham is a means to an end, you are effectively the footballing equivalent of a ventriloquist dummy. You must be so naive if anyone thinks this is anything other than a cynical marketing ploy.

Thats bait.

Another classic from the Chesterfield charm school.

It's not bait, its the truth. Its the height of tinpottedness for a football club when they cease to function primarily as a football club and become a vassal to a marketing strategy.

The Ted Lasso thing is a prime example... hey that was a cool tie in that grew organically, yeah right.

All planned and more to come. Soul sold.

I guarantee Wrexham fans in a few seasons will be like the boyfriend of an ex pornstar. In theory it sounds cool but in reality they cant look in her in the eye because of the respect lost knowing the times she whored herself out and the cock she took.

Its very telling you guys only come back with ad hominem attacks. It's almost as if you cant actually argue against what I'm saying. Funny that.

Next meme / gif please. Yawn.

Have you recently learnt the term Ad hominem? you keep using it. Makes its use suspicious.

You are perfectly entitled to your view on Wrexham football club, but do you need to keep repeating it? we've got it, its fine. You think our new owners are a joke, the whole thing is going to collapse into farce soon. We are a tiny tinpot club who sold out. Good for you. Well done.

Youve posted a short number of times on this website and in that short period shown yourself to be a thoroughly disagreeable and unpleasant individual who adds nothing to the discourse, not even by way of banter. You're boring. What's the point?
