Well, that seems to rule us out for Charman.
As for Ollie Palmer - good player, but £180K?! Wow.


Interestingly Wikipedia has him down as 6ft 5”. He’s either been eating his Weetabix since he left here or my memory is fading.

More than likely doing the classic 2+2=5

But, Scott Burgess, 24 midfielder as been allowed to have his contract terminated at Port Vale.
Our owner and Port Vale's owners seem to have a relationship, and wondering if this is possibly linked?

180 grand for Ryan Reynolds is just a drop in the ocean. Reportedly worth well over a hundred million and in the prime of his movie career, he's guaranteed tens of millions a year income for some time yet. If they are going to have a real go at things, it's no surprise they might well splash the cash.

I see this as the equivalent of paying 8 grand for a 2013 Vauxhall Astra with 96000 miles on the clock, when the true value is probably £2500. Good car, lots of of attributes but in average nick having done a lot of miles and grossly overpriced. Good business for the garage. 🙂

Very little, if any, of his own personal cash is going to be spent on Wrexham. The Wrexham model is sustainable in the short-term, fuelled by Hollywood fame.

Neither Reynolds or McElhenney will lose a dime on this investment. To the contrary, I think they’ll do very well out of it.

I'd be somewhat surprised if they were to even break even.

I don't get the impression that there is much chance of them making any money on the deal. Ultimately, a few million quid is pocket change for the owners (well, for Reynolds, in any case). Good PR for them, probably a bit of a laugh being involved in some respect (especially given that opportunities for doing much different have been limited during the pandemic). What's Reynolds risking? A 30th of his wealth all in, something like that? Heck, I could easily lose that without blinking an eye and I certainly don't have millions in the bank!
