Thumbs up Welcome to Wrexham

Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have made a documentary about their takeover of Wrexham from the moment they decided to buy it to the present day. Really enjoying it to be honest, they both seem like really decent guys but can't help but feel they won't be in it for the long haul. Ryan Reynolds is as £#%&!.

They have already admitted, outside of the doc, they need outside investment.

Seeing Humphrey walk into the team meeting made me LOL. The decision to make him an executive due him knowing what football was...

Was almost like watching Louis Theoroux being appointed an executive.

Watched the first four last night, very much enjoying it. First two are worth watching for Keb Mo's cover and the intro alone.

Love how they made it sound like they were signing Lionel Messi when they signed Paul Mullins.

Cambridge legend, however...

Few episodes in and Iím enjoying it.

Both of them seem decent blokes and the one that isnít Ryan Reynolds seems to really love what heís doing, heís sports mad isnít he

Would be good if they draw Salford in the cup so we get to have a doc-off.

The show needed more of them. Too much focus on the Wrexham fans and their private lives which I couldn't give two shits about.

Guessing they wouldnít want it to seem like it was all about McIlhenney and Reynolds and more that it was Wrexhamís story.

Iíve not got Disney+ so havenít been able to watch it, but personally Iíd be watching it for those two. A couple of funny entertaining lads make for better viewing than a bunch of miserable Welsh alcoholics.

Yes I like both. It's not them, it's the Wrexham public I found uninteresting. That landlord bloke, the two old women outside the caff, all so forced. The Sunderland one did it so much better.

Yeah, the Sunderland one was far better.

Yeah this was my gripe with it. Couldn't give a shit about them. Just give me Reynolds, Rob and Hugh and see their reactions when they need to spend £100k on a new pitch, please.

I caught up with this last night (ep5-8) and am still enjoying it.

Had to laugh at the stupid @#%&! calling for the manager's head because they were only mid-table after 9 games.

I know one of the lads in the band has got/had cancer but if I hear that £#%&!ing "Less than a mile..." song again, I'm likely to stick my boot through the screen.

Can't beat a bit of Charlotte Church though, so I'm still on board.

The programme does highlight this. Stoke with sheep.
