WREXHAM chairman Mark Guterman proved as good as his word last night by carrying through his threat to ban a Daily Post journalist for revealing the club's cash plight.
Asked to comment on our exclusive story that players and other staff had been paid only half their November wages,Guterman promised to bar our reporter Andy Gilpin from the Racecourse if we told our readers -many of them his club's fans -what was going on.
Yesterday he did just that,adding a further warning: ``This is not the last of it by any means.''
He's not wrong. Fans have a right to know the truth of the club's financial situation and,as North Wales' biggest-selling newspaper, we will continue to bring it to you,free from censorship censorship, official prohibition or restriction of any type of expression believed to threaten the political, social, or moral order. It may be imposed by governmental authority, local or national, by a religious body, or occasionally by a powerful private group. . Guterman maintains our reports are ``total and absolute rubbish''.Well, let's examine the facts.
Guterman claims: ``The report implies we have done this (not paid full wages) without the players knowing anything about it. That is simply not true.''
Right again.It's simply not true that we said that. We stated the players were informed last week,as Guterman admits. Another claim: ``The story also talks of a cash-flow crisis. There is no crisis.''
Well, if there's no crisis, where's the cash?
Finally,Guterman misses the point by moaning moan
a. A low, sustained, mournful cry, usually indicative of sorrow or pain.
b. A similar sound: the eerie moan of the night wind.
v. he's ``not happy about the tenor of the story''.It's not the way you tell it (straight down the line in this case),but the facts themselves that matter.
The truth is that at Wrexham, like several other clubs in British football, money is in short supply. Attendances are low and it is difficult to make ends meet. No shame in that.
What Guterman needs to do is keep lines of communication "Lines of Communication" is an episode from the fourth season of the science-fiction television series Babylon 5. Synopsis

Clear heads will help solve the problem far better than shooting the messenger.
