    Not Wrexham Athletic then!

    also a shoutout for Douglas City, a modicum of pride in this announcement.

    Didn’t realise it was so small, has the place only got a population of 70,000?

    Just seems pointless. Do the Wrexham residents really want this or is it more about MPS, councils etc pushing for things.

    The town v city nomenclature must be confusing for people who live in countries where no such differential exists linguistically.

    By the way, although it will come as no surprise that the word 'city' comes from Latin the etymology of the word 'town' has come to us via an interesting route (for me anyway!):

    The German word 'Zaun' meant a fence that encircled a homestead.
    As in many cases, the 'Z' changed to 'T' and a vowel change occured so that the word became 'tuin' (best imagine the pronuciation as being spoken by a Newportonian) in Dutch. However, 'tuin' was used for the cultivated area within the fence and now means 'garden'.
    In Old English 'tuin' became 'tūn' which represented the settlement itself and, in turn, became 'ton' or 'town'.
    Taunton = Tonetown i.e. town on the river Tone.

    Just sayin'

    It's a welcoming place. They start talking in Welsh when you walk in a pub. OK it's the language of Wales I know but the gogs do it on purpose.

    To follow TBGs trivia.

    It interested me that on the Isle of Man, Peel in known as a City, as St.Germans cathedral is there, it was the original capital of the King of Mann, home to St.Patrick. They applied for City status but didn’t get it but Douglas as the administrative capital did.

    You're more likely to hear Welsh in a Cardiff pub than you are in Wrexham...
