    Airs tonight I believe, anybody else interested in this? I kinda started following Wrexham like 5 years ago, had no idea a couple hollywood actors were planning on coming in to invest in the club. Seems like the behind the scenes stuff could be interesting.

    Might give it a bash, don't think Ryan Reynolds has been in anything I've seen and likes but love It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia so would be interesting seeing Rob Mchilhenny.

    What was said? That we don’t partake in it to a successful degree, just go in for multi-generational cultural hatred?

    They were explaining the history of it to an American audience and brought up the infamous riot at the cup final in the 80s and said the old firm was one of the most notorious examples and mentioned the protestant vs catholic dimension of it. They literally only spent 20 seconds on it and then brought up the Liverpool juventus game....

    I live in wrexham and what these two have done for the town is incredible. The town desperately needed something to be optimistic about and has suffered some bad luck as a town (although a city now) and as a club.

    The documentary has been a great watch as a whole but it annoyed me they included our name in the hooligan episode. No need really.

    That being said most Wrexham fans I know say their preference is Celtic when picking a team in the spfl.

    Been to a few wrexham games over the years and on a couple occasions they sang * Glasgow rangers (along with a few other clubs). That's where my soft spot for Wrexham as club started, probably about 15 years ago now too.

    Nice, I started following Wrexham a bit maybe 5 years ago. Was looking to follow a team in the English pyramid that wasn't English. I didn't really care what level they were at but didn't really care for Cardiff or Swansea. Nonetheless I was amused when I saw Ryan and Rob were taking over the club, but have to say it seems like they are honest and trying to do good by the town.

    They are smart business men I can see why they picked Wrexham unlike class of 92 picking Salford
