@50, check out Shrewsbury’s twitter. It has all his interviews and even a vid of his first day in training on there. Wrexscum’s Twitter also has his departure on theirs too.

He's linked for the same reason that Fowler was linked to the Shrewsbury job. People will click on the links to see the story, the website gets advertising revenue - and it's a story which will get lots of people clicking.

These stories need to be believable to the people who did the huge volume of clicks (i.e., Liverpool fans with no knowledge of the lower leagues). Whether there is anything to back them up is entirely irrelevant.

Before Barnes came to us he was working as a media pundit, and took on an easily available coaching job. If he was looking to make a return to management he would be doing similar things - there are plenty of jobs that might not appeal long-term, but would make him appeal to a club like Wrexham. The fact he's messing around on Big Brother doesn't exactly demonstrate a return to management is on his agenda.

Does he think it feasible to cycle to Wrexham? It's a lot further than cycling from Heswall to PP.!!!!

It's in Wales so I think they have a similar product called Leekazade, which is basically carbonated leek content, with a easily absorbed carbohydrate profile. Perfect for keeping you fresher on long distance jogs in Snowdonia or the Brecon Beacons.



Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.

To be fair I reckon Barnes would do really well at Wrexham. At Rovers he had the worst players in the division with low morale, comparatively he will have money to spend at Wrexham with pick of the best non league players. Good luck to him it's a shame to see one of the countries best ever wingers and a pioneer for black football as a bit of the joke he's become with his management failures I hope it goes well if he gets the job. It's time Wrexham were back in the league

You've got to remember the club's physio did better than him with the same players. Remember kithson bain?

And we were bottom of L1 at the time. So it's probably a very similar standard to NL. That Barnes thought it was OK to run with a youth team keeper all the way through preseason and only signed one a day or two before the season started tells you all you need to know about his all round management skills.

Rumour had it he was tardy in offering Danny Coyne anything and Coyne went to Middlesbrough and he supposedly did nothing to keep Ben Chorley was was well regarded, so he went back to a previous club Leyton Orient.

Don't think much in way of funds were available, so any manager would have struggled....

Come on, he was rubbish, then tried the race card. Yes he may do well elsewhere, but judging him here, there was a lot to be desired.

if he does not get the Wrexham job, providing he goes for it and he gets an interview, will it because he's black or just sh*t

He's ruled himself out of it as far as I'm aware so he won't be going for it, unless he suddenly has a u-turn.
