Mention in despatches for whoever is doing the Daily Star front pages at the moment!

I suspect not as they have not actually paid any cash for the club, just committed to invest. I read somewhere (buggered if I can find it now) that they have not 'taken over' as reported and that the club remains in the hands of the Supporters Trust, can't find that piece now!

Well, wherever you read that will be news to both Wrexham and WST:

"Subject to final agreement, league and FA confirmation – the RR McReynolds Company, LLC will take 100% control of Wrexham Football Club Limited from the WST."

They have bought the Trust's shares for a token amount with a binding commitment to invest £2m

If you scroll down to the next one in the thread, he gets on to Serie A and the Bundesliga. Wolfsburg is just pure poetry.
