Would be cool if Wrexham gets promotion next year.

Enjoyed the first episode back.

We got back into Hulu and had just finished the first season so luckily didn’t have to wait long.

I love the more personal stories this season. Love it.

I like seeing how much things have changed for the town since season 1 started. Rob/Ryan buying the team itself would have helped them a ton but this show must have made their economy shoot through the roof. Also touching seeing the fans of other low league clubs talking about being happy for them and wishing it happened to their clubs. I know JJ Watt recently bought into a higher tier club but I wouldn't be surprised if other athletes buy some of these other smaller clubs, trying to do the same facelift as Wrexham.

Just started watching this... loving it so far! Rob & Ryan are easy to root for and I can't wait to see how Wrexham grows from this.

Another thing I thought was interesting (which I think they touched on last season, too) is them having a quiet section for folks who don't do well with yelling. Is that common in the soccer world? I don't think I've seen it anywhere else.

No, it's not. There's usually a family section where there's less swearing and generally better behavior. But you can't miss 40,000 fans singing "The referee's a wanker" no matter where you sit.

Episode 6 was good. Concentrated on the women's team.

Great episode this week. I know the outcome of the season but I didn't know the outcome of the FA Cup. The rules for a draw are garbage.

Fun end to the season. Enjoyed seeing the other side of some of it with Notts.

Best reality show on TV.

I really wish I hadn’t spoiled the ending for myself or anyone else with a careless post.

Promotion or not this is a great fucking show. This season especially, focusing on individual stories was great. And, learning about the women’s team was cool.

I still hate and will never watch soccer, but this felt like one of those feel good sports movies, even for a sport you could care less about (bobsledding for example).

I did want to punch you through the internet when I read your post, as it made it sound like
Spoiler:
they wouldn't make it.




You have to hand it to their editors; they can really ratchet up the tension. Will be interesting to see how this all affects the fortunes of Rob and Ryan from a financial standpoint. Hopefully the women's team can no play in the stadium proper instead of that sad little field they played on before.

I guess I could look this up if I weren't so lazy, but are Rob and Ryan really putting in all the money to own that club? Or is the network financing the bulk of this? There's more tension in the show if all their money is on the line. But I wonder how true that is.
