The Wrexham PR machine here,and I have a soft spot for Wrexham from way back, really just reinforces my totally biased disdain for the average American Soccer follower (not fan)...I don't include other exiles from real football countries !

They feel the same, when a Brit starts talking about netball or rounders.

(Hey ROTG I know your post is meant with a smile and I smile with you.)

That's true but it's not the real soccer followers over here who are the problem, for me, it's the instant experts..little Jenny is playing at school and now Mommy knows the game inside out..an extreme example but go from there!

Read a recent article in The Guardian (yeah I know) breaking down the abysmal Fox pundit covering of the Euros and Copa America which led me to a similar one regarding the WC...hit the nail on the head.

When I was working I made a point of keeping up with the Denver Broncos and other local sports teams.(still do)....I didn't pass opinions and listened to people who did know what they were talking about. 

A fellow workmate was a Chelsea man through and through and we could discuss things sensibly.

Not as serious a post as it may come across but the Game here has a long way to go in terms of set up and as it stands until a better way is found of showcasing the game on the same competitive domestic level as other real powers it will stay a lesser, although with pretensions of grandeur, Football entity.

Just my humble view somewhat oversimplified.

And..Wrexham ?..a great sporting story and one I am glad to see but really... ?..

This is such a crazy pre-season schedule. Playing 5 games in two weeks in probably crap pitches and not taking account of the travelling. I guess this is the reason we are taking 29 players to the U.S

The first 2-3 matches will probably mostly feature players that won't even be part of the first-team squad during the season. It's partly fitness work, but more than anything fulfilling a fixture in order to make money. This makes sense that we're playing Wrexham, then Celtic, then Club America. I don't think we'll see a serious team until we play Man City and Real Madrid, before the home match against Inter. Three friendlies just to make money, then three to actually prepare the team for the season (and make more money).
