Wrexham have captured worldwide attention through their Hollywood ownership and documentary series charting their journey up the football pyramid.
The big question is, how long will it be until they actually make it to the Premier League? While their finances look to be secure in the hands of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, tactically they may need to make managerial adjustments as time goes on.
Jon Mackenzie breaks down just what the blueprint for promotion looks like through the English Football League, and how Wrexham can efficiently climb the ladder.

@@zsertymiop7136 One aspect that's been brought in analysis for why Wrexham was picked for investment is regionally it doesn't have many rivals to share a fanbase with, so it can have a more stable base. Just one aspect, but underremarked is that the whole story is not the happy accident of two sports fans falling in love with a deserving town, but well-researched investment. They had to be ready for a few years of non-investment. I imagine the owners are in for the long haul? But the tv show will be long gone when the battlecry turns into "we're sustainable!"

I think the best arrangement they could do would be to sell the majority stake in the club to someone of more means but keep a decent stake in the club for themselves so they can still be visible brand ambassadors for Wrexham, still take part in the documentaries and lend their celebrity to the club as i'm sure no Wrexham fan wants to see them leave the club for good as they saved them and more importantly have rejuvenated the local community

I think their recruitment will be very important. The average age of their key players lies somewhere a little over 30, making sure that they are building a team that can compete in 5 years instead of just signing ex PL players in their twilight years will be important. They have a good few younger players who show promise, hopefully they can get it right and continue to lower that average age, finding players who fit into the system and can offer more than just 2-4 years of high level play
@CrabSully 9 ай бұрын

@venettore3601 9 ай бұрын
tbh, I think their current recruitment approach isn't a bad idea from now until the Championship. Once there, they can develop their youth players right as their more senior players are on the way out in order to make that final push into the Prem. Keeping in mind, of course, that the higher they go up and the better their trajectory looks, the more likely they are to attract high caliber prospects.

Excellent video from Tifo as always! Fantastic analysis that is in-depth, insightful and detailed, but delivered in a straightforward way. As others have mentioned, I think the one potential hitch with Wrexham is that the exponential growth is sort of tied to sponsorship deals and interest from the TV show. If they go up the leagues quickly, you could see their income increase rapidly and exponentially as sponsors become more interested. But on the flip side, if they were to stagnate in say League 1 for even 2 seasons (I know this isn't long at all in the grand scheme of things but for a tv show it may be), it might be very hard for them to continue to do the same numbers on WTW and interest from brands may drop off a cliff. As John said in the video, the net worth of Ryan and Rob alone would definitely carry them through for the 3rd and 4th tier, but immediately becomes difficult once they're in the Championship. That's when they'll need behemoth sponsors such as United or TikTok the most. I do hope they can continue to move up the leagues, because it's a brilliant show and would be great for the town of Wrexham. I also agree wholeheartedly with the idea that this is a club run in the right way, so would be sad to see Ryan and Rob lose interest (Imo this is inevitable if they stagnate for too long)
@benry007 9 ай бұрын
I think it would still be interesting if they are in the championship for a while but I agree they need to get through the other leagues at a decent pace to stay relevant. They may also seek investors when they get to the championship. If they bring on some other popular wealthy stars it could also renew interest in the club if it starts to wane.
@robinthebobin6537 9 ай бұрын
@@benry007 Bringing in other stars is a good shout for the sort of thing that could keep it going actually. Just to be clear, when I say "keeping it interesting", I'm not really speaking for me (a bit of a football nerd lol), the audience of Tifo (also football nerds) or average british football fans; I'm sure we'd all enjoy watching it and following the club for a while even if they were in the championship for a fair few years. I'm more talking about the American audience/non-football-fans who are fans of Wrexham from the TV show. Realistically (nothing against those people as they obviously have other interests), I think it might be hard to keep the tv show and following the club interesting for those people if there was a period of stagnation.
@robinthebobin6537 9 ай бұрын
@@benry007 You're definitely right about investors, agreed. Ryan and Rob will probably be acutely aware when they reach the Championship of how much money they'll need in proportion to the money they actually have. What would be really exciting (and a logical progression for the theme of the project) would be if they got more hollywood megastars - but ones even bigger than Ryan😂😂, on board. Not sure how many of these exist with a much higher networth than him though lol. Also for progress in the prem (a long way away if they ever get there), they would definitely need an ownership deal with someone with serious money, and yes for better or worse that would probably be some sort of Saudi investment group I'd imagine.

The thing to consider as well is, whether their star players have quality for Championship. And it would be maybe for a great video for Tifo. Check how many players stayed all the way (and played part in success). While the quality might be great right now and they might have stars for 5th, 4th or even 3rd level, once you get in Championship and challenge for PL, you need different level of players. I checked Bournemouth in 09/10 and 14/15 (their promotions from 4th and 2nd level) and they had 1 player, who started regularly (15+ matches) in their L2 promotion during the LC promotion season. That means they discarded their entire squad within 5 seasons. That is why these clubs as well utilize loans, because they know they cant would need to do 2-3 complete overhauls of the squad. Because there are very few players, who are LC promotion quality (and the wages of that level) who are willing to go to L2. So in the end you need to compete with L1/L2 quality players to get to L2, Championship/L1 level to get to L1, Championship quality to get to Champ and then do it again with TOP champ/PL calibre players. That means they have ahead at least 2-3 more rebuilds to even challenge for promotion level and it is always question, how quickly they can do that. On the finance front, they have rather smaller stadium (15.5k), which would rank as one of the smallest stadiums. And the matchday income is huge amount of money.

So I recently found this interesting info: English football clubs who could possibly make the Premier League (1992-93 onwards) for the first time in their history within the next 5 seasons (from most to least likely): 1. Preston North End 2. Bristol City 3. Millwall 4. Wrexham 5. Plymouth Argyle 6. Oxford United 7. Leyton Orient 8. Peterborough United 9. Notts County 10. Rotherham United So Wrexham 4th as things currently stand to possibly make the Prem for the first time over the next 5 seasons, although it could well be longer. Who disagrees with the order of this? I am rather doubtful over Rotherham ever making it, however far into the future...

Probably never. Unless they get lucky, their realistic ceiling is probably to survive at Championship level for a few seasons if they are well managed. Also I think this video underestimates how difficult it can be to get out of League 1. In the past, far bigger, and better resourced clubs than Wrexham ended up being stuck there for years e.g. Leeds, Forest, Sheff Utd, Portsmouth, Sunderland, Ipswich, Bristol City etc. It takes a lot of money to compete with these types of clubs over a sustained period at the top of League 1, and even more just to survive in the Championship.

I think Wrexham need to stick by Parkinson until he gets them into League One. He's clearly a competent manager at lower league level, and has earned a couple of seasons in League Two after getting them up there. However, I don't think they should be going into the Championship with the direct style, as that may lead to stagnation and may become expensive Hiring a new progressive manager in League One would enable them to start rebuilding the squad at a level where they are very likely to be safe even during the transition. They might then take a few seasons longer than average at League One level, but they would be better equipped for the Championship, and wouldn't end up getting stuck if they did go up then

Can't see the viewing figures for welcome to wrexham holding up for too many years. Once they start to dip it might get cancelled. Obviously that will mean less money from sponsorship. We'll see though.

Completely agree. It's a great show now and I'm sure next year with them in League 2 will probably be entertaining, but if they get stuck in League One for a few years I can't see it remaining so compelling

It's got to be a stepping stone in the marketing, it's loss offset by the fans it does pull in. While a lot of fans won't stay after the show, a base of revenue will, and they'll have at least a few years of lucrative exhibition tours while it's running. Still a big if, but they need to run until they're more popular/financially stronger, not forerver.

I have to add 2 things: 1. The championship is very difficult to get out of, especially when dealing with the relegated premiership teams and their parachute payments. 2. Getting to the Premiership is all fine and good, now try sticking in that league building for 5-10 years! Most likely find relegation within 1-3 years. I’m not sure on prices but looking to spend 100-250 million on players to keep up in the Premiership after your promotion.

You underestimate the power of money. Reynold is a genius of marketing and utilizing star power. As long as they are successful on the pitch, they'd be able to bring in unlimited money. The only barrier to success for them will be recruitment. if they recruit wisely and sustainably, they will make the PL in record time. Unfortunately, having money rarely translates to proper recruitment. I hope they overhaul the board and appoint a director of football once they make league one. This will be essential to escape the championship

Fingers crossed once the interest from the documentary dies down, and they suddenly have 30% of their legitimate revenue then they can’t support the wage bill, they’ll sell some players maybe pay out of the owners pocket and receive sanctions. Back to the national league for you Wrexham ‘fans’, try and get out of the hardest league without bankrolling it now

I sincerely doubt Reynolds and co. actually realize the scope of investment/money being dealt around that comes with promotion and degradation. Buying a club for 2M doesn't get you to the premier league, even the lowest ranked squad in the premier league probably has a total value of 150M+, nevermind the fact that they'd also have to build a new stadium to match during this time costing another 60-120M.

10-15 years i think as a wrexham fan. We won’t go up this year but we will definitely go up next year or the year after then again we’ll spend 2/3 years in league one so let’s say in 5 years time we’re in the championship which is very hard cus naturally 2 teams go up instantly then there’s the playoffs. We’ll be there for 5 years to 10 years cus u always expect 2 of the relegated teams to have a good go at the top then there’s another couple who challenge

Much as I love Parky for what he did with us (Bolton) he isn't the most sustainable squad builder and I don't think is going to be able to control games in the champ (his style of play with us was needed given the underdogs we were with no money and a bunch of rejects but at Wrexham where you can basically build whatever you want I don't think it'll last a poor run of results in L1, presuming they get up this year)

Recruitment is key. They can do well currently because they can outspend most of their peers. In League One it'll be harder. At Championship level, that will no longer be an option. There are much bigger clubs there than Wrexham, with owners who have deeper pockets.

It will become harder to attract quality plus you need a strong academy to succeed imo. They should be trying to draw top players 15-17 yo and get them playing in a system together. Personally, I see them stalling at league 1 until they stop chasing the best available player and start building a core of talent.
