The United version of Pogba is out for the rest of this year with a bad injury anyway.

<Didn't fall for it> :P

Wrexham chairman Ian Roberts says there is still confidence in boss Dean Saunders despite a poor season start.

A group of fans chanted "Saunders out" after they let slip a 2-0 lead to draw their Blue Square Bet Premier match at home to Kidderminster on Tuesday night.

"Confidence is still there... himself he's a hard task-master," Roberts said.

"The fans don't see the hours he puts in on the training ground and other functions of the club but everything, like in any business, is under review."

Wrexham have claimed four points from four league games so far and, although it is still early in the season, are just two places above the relegation places.

Roberts revealed that manager Saunders has had to operate under budget cuts of "30-35%" this season, but the Racecourse Ground side are still far from being the paupers of the Blue Square Bet Premier.

"It's a slower start to the season than we would have liked, obviously we're only 10 days into the season," Roberts said.

"We do have no divine right to beat anybody at this level and there's some tough teams in there, a lot of teams struggling to get out of the league as we are.

"As Dean said, we live in an economic climate and the club has gone from year to year losing money and we had to cut budget.

"I think he's brought in experienced players, whereas last year we didn't have... and it's going to take a little bit of time for that team to gel."

Roberts says he understands the frustration of supporters after a period that has seen Wrexham go into administration and suffer relegation from the Football League.

"Our gate last night was 2,400 which I think was the second highest in the division, but we do need the people of Wrexham to support their football club," Roberts said.

"Because obviously it's chicken-and-egg isn't it, and I know the supporters will say 'well we want to see a winning side' but it really does centre around money unfortunately, sport today."

Wrexham Supporters' Trust (WST) has been told to complete its takeover of Wrexham FC "sooner rather than later".

The target date of 1 July has passed without a deal being completed and the club's directors have called for action to be taken.

The directors are pulling out of the Blue Square Bet Premier side, blaming fan abuse, and say they have no more funds to put in.

WST said they were still in negotiations to buy the club for £1.

The club was put up for sale earlier this year and the Trust have been interested in taking over from the start.

It was part of a joint bid with local hotelier Stephanie Booth before she withdrew her offer to buy Wrexham FC, saying she had received death threats.

Then in May, businessman Colin Poole pledged cash for a takeover with the WST having a 25.1% share, before he also pulled out after what he called a confrontation with some fans.

Full takeover

Since then, WST have been in talks over a full takeover putting the club into community ownership.


Quote:
The new season is around the corner and it is now therefore time for action, one way or another”
Wrexham directors' statement


"Negotiations with the trust initially moved forward at a brisk pace and season tickets were put on sale with the agreement of the trust," said a Wrexham directors' statement.

"The revenue is used by all clubs to cover off season staff and other costs when there is little other income.

"Agreement was also given by the trust to Dean's (Saunders) playing budget for the 2011/12 season and players recruited on the back of this.

"Financial and legal due diligence has been undertaken by the trust and their teams of accountants and solicitors. Full compliance from ourselves and our staff has been given.

"After announcing our departure the directors stated that there are no further funds to support the business.

"The trust have been advised that they would need to take over sooner rather than later, as it is creating a vacuum regarding moving the business on in terms of sponsorship, as well as on field and off field planning.

"The business turnover is circa £1.6m and the acquisitional cost is £1.

"Due diligence has been done and the target handover date of 1 July has passed. The new season is around the corner and it is now therefore time for action, one way or another."

But Richard Green, WST chief executive, said: "WST is not interested in inflating this matter because we are still in negotiations with them."

Wrexham Supporters Trust (WST) is set to make an offer to buy Wrexham FC.

The Trust said it has received the "majority" of the due diligence material needed, but the exercise has not been totally completed.

Talks are planned with the club's directors who want action "sooner rather than later".

The directors are pulling out of the Blue Square Bet Premier side, blaming fan abuse, and say they have no more funds to put in.

"The Wrexham Supporters' Trust is pleased to announce that it is in a position to present an offer to (owners) Wrexham Village to purchase the Racecourse and Colliers Park, and rescue Wrexham Football Club with the aid of third parties," a statement said.

"Crunch talks between the WST and the directors of Wrexham FC are planned under the backdrop of an imminent oblivion for Wrexham FC and its proud history.

"Having previously put forward proposals to the club, we have worked ceaselessly to revise and put forward another proposal on the basis of a much better understanding of the position of the football club and what the directors of Wrexham FC want personally.
'Telling moment'

"The Trust's proposal gives the current owners the opportunity to act quickly to create a legacy of community ownership for professional football in Wrexham which should allow the club and its assets to prosper for the benefit of the people of Wrexham and north Wales.

Quote:
The ball is now and has always been with them and it is for them to decide if they pass the responsibility for Wrexham football club to the Trust or not”
Wrexham Supporters Trust


"This will still enable the directors to continue with their interests in the Wrexham Village project and Crusaders RFL."

The statement added: "The ball is now and has always been with them and it is for them to decide if they pass the responsibility for Wrexham Football Club to the Trust or not.

"This is a unique and telling moment for the club owners."

Any deal is dependent on the acceptance of the football authorities and Trust membership.

It would bring an end to the long-running saga over the club's future.

The club was put up for sale earlier this year and the Trust have been interested in taking over from the start.

It was part of a joint bid with local hotelier Stephanie Booth before she withdrew her offer to buy Wrexham FC, saying she had received death threats.

Then in May, businessman Colin Poole pledged cash for a takeover with the WST having a 25.1% share, before he also pulled out after what he called a confrontation with some fans.

Since then, WST have been in talks over a full takeover putting the club into community ownership.

Last week, club directors issued a statement on the club website urging the Trust to act quickly.

It said: "The Trust have been advised that they would need to take over sooner rather than later, as it is creating a vacuum regarding moving the business on in terms of sponsorship, as well as on field and off field planning."

Former Wales midfielder Robbie Savage says he would be prepared to put money into the right consortium seeking to buy troubled hometown club Wrexham.

The club and ground were put up for sale earlier this year by current owners Geoff Moss and Ian Roberts.

But the fate of the Blue Square Bet Premier side remains unclear as a new season fast approaches.

"I don't know the ins and outs but if Wrexham were to go out of business it would be so wrong," said Savage.

A number of groups, including Wrexham Supporters Trust (WST), have shown an interest in buying the club.

The current owners say delays in reaching a deal with WST to buy the club has prompted talks with two other parties.

Savage, who finished his playing career with Derby at the end of last season, used to watch Wrexham games from the Kop terrace at the Racecourse.

He says the club's facilities, including the training complex at Colliers Park, make it an attractive proposition for potential owners.

Wrexham FC's co-owner Geoff Moss has said the football club has run out of money.

It is understood 115 people ranging from catering staff to the coaches and players have not been paid.

A supporters group is appealing to fans to make donations to an emergency fund to pay the players.

Mr Moss also said he was considering leaving the country because of death threats which he said have been made against him.

He said the club, which is up for sale, was desperately searching for cash to pay both the wages and a £45,000 tax bill.

Two pre-season friendlies have been cancelled.

Wrexham Supporters Trust have been involved in a lengthy bid to buy the club.It said it still hoped a deal could be concluded.

The Football Conference is seeking urgent assurances that cash-strapped Wrexham will be able to complete its fixtures in the coming season.

Around 115 staff at the club have not been paid including the players and two pre-season friendly matches have been cancelled.

Owners Geoff Moss and Ian Roberts say they have run out of money.But they say there are no plans to take the club into administration unless a deal to sell it falls through.

Meanwhile, supporters have launched an emergency fund to try and raise money to pay the players.

Both the Welsh Government and Wrexham Council say they cannot provide financial assistance.

First Minister Carwyn Jones said he was "extremely saddened and concerned" about Wrexham's situation.

"Wrexham has one of the finest traditions of any football club in the country and we believe it is critical that they are able to find a way forward and continue to create that tremendous sense of passion and community spirit for which they are famed," he said.

"Whilst we are unable to offer any direct financial assistance, we feel that the best way for the club to return to its former glories is for it to be run by people with its best interests at heart."

Wrexham AM Lesley Griffiths has written to the Professional Footballers Association and the Football Association Wales asking them to offer assistance.

In a statement, Wrexham County Council said that it has remained consistent in its message to all parties - that it wishes to ensure that the Racecourse Ground is safeguarded as an international sports stadium for North Wales.

Mickey Thomas says he "fears the worst" for financially-troubled Wrexham as news emerged that the Welsh club is unable to pay its players this month.

Current owner Geoff Moss has stated he "will not continue to fund the club" and a proposed buy-out by Wrexham Supporters Trust is yet to materialise.

Pre-season friendlies at Colwyn Bay and Vauxhall Motors have been called off after the players decided not to play.

"It's the worst state... in the history of the club," said Wrexham fan Thomas.

Former Wrexham winger Thomas, who also played for Manchester United and Chelsea, said of the Blue Square Bet Premier club's plight: "They've had some bad times before, but this situation… is not healthy at all."

"I'm very worried now it's going to go the same way as Chester, maybe, and that'll be a disaster for everyone concerned."

Wrexham boss Dean Saunders revealed the players decided to "make a stand" :laugh:

Such a shame to see Wrexham in the state its in. Can't understand it to be honest as I have always thought they were a well supported club. Why can't North Walian ex players like Hughes, Speed, Savage, Thomas et al club together and buy it out via a consortium?

I have just been talking to someone about Wrexham

Apparently the only money they been offered is from the college for the ground, to build halls of residence.... no ground no games...and the club doesn't own the ground anymore

They're completely out of cash, so the guarantee to fulfil their fixtures isn't going to work on Thursday

They missed the deadline to be considered for other leagues, lower down the pyramid

No football this season means they miss the qualification for 'phoenix club', which means down to the bottom of the pile

No 'phoenix club' status means they'll be ineligible to re-enter the English league

Which means 'hello League of Wales' and the local derby will be Aerospace & Rhyl


In short bye bye wrexham

It's looking that way isn't it? Chester went the same way but they got the 'phoenix club' option in time. Sad to see IMO.

it's Chester that has forced the issue.... their failure to complete their fixtures 2 years ago, means the Conference is super wary of ballsing it up and looking like a joke league again

:applause:

...trouble is, this is going to happen again and again, there's plenty of others in various leagues e.g. Curzon Ashton, in real danger
