History of the end of the Kop – a stand built with the blood, sweat and tears of Wrexham supporters https://faithspixelpatch.com/history-of-the-end-of-the-kop-a-stand-built-with-the-blood-sweat-and-tears-of-wrexham-supporters/ Mon, 09 May 2022 04:11:00 +0000 https://faithspixelpatch.com/history-of-the-end-of-the-kop-a-stand-built-with-the-blood-sweat-and-tears-of-wrexham-supporters/

A new campaign called Stadium for the North has launched to try and redevelop the Kop end of Wrexham AFC’s historic racecourse – and in turn bring competitive international football back to North Wales. Here we take a look at the history of the famous stand of the oldest international football stadium in the world.

All Wrexham fans will know and love the Kop at the Racecourse Ground. Since 2008, fans have not had the opportunity to stand on the large terrace which once held nearly 20,000 people.

However, some might not be aware of the history of the Kop at Wrexham and how it came to bear its name. In the first half of the 20th century, there was only a small terrace behind the goal, and it was known as the “railway end” or “town end” of the ground.

This was until the late 1940s when there was an increase in fans attending the game after World War II. The directors of the then football club at Wrexham were looking to increase the capacity of the ground and it was decided to build an embankment behind the ‘Town End’ goal as many other clubs had already begun to do before the war.

Supporters began to help build the embankment using shovels and wheelbarrows – there were no large power shovels then. It was built on the blood, sweat and tears of these loyal club supporters.



When erected, it was named the “Spion Kop” (or Kop for short), which is a colloquial name or term for a number of single-storey terraces and grandstands that have been constructed in sports stadiums over the years. of this period.

The first recorded reference to a sports terrace as “Kop” was linked to Woolwich Arsenal’s Manor Ground in 1904. The reference was made by a journalist who compared the silhouette of fans standing on a newly raised earthen embankment to soldiers standing on top of the hill at the Battle of Spion Kop which took place in January 1900.

According to the reporter, the steep nature of the terrace resembled a hill near Ladysmith, South Africa, which was the scene of battle during the Second Boer War. And it wasn’t just in London that a “Kop” had arisen.

What are your memories of the Kop? Have your say in the comments section

Two years later, in 1906, Ernest Edwards, then the sports editor of the Liverpool Echo, wrote about a new open embankment at Anfield. This large embankment behind Liverpool’s field goal would later be constructed, becoming known as the ‘Kop’ in the 1950s.

Many other grounds in the UK would then have ‘Kop’ sections bearing the same name. Once the racecourse’s cinder embankment was built, it wasn’t until a few years later that the stadium’s iconic concrete terrace was added.

In January 1957, more than 15,000 people thronged the Kop to watch Wrexham take on Manchester United’s ‘Busby Babes’ in an FA Cup fourth round. This match saw the largest crowd ever gathered at the racecourse – 34,445.



Wrexham are in the last four
The Kop in its current form

As those of us over 30 know, the atmosphere of a patio is hard to replicate elsewhere in the ground. The idea of ​​being able to stand where you want, rather than being confined to a particular seat while your friends are perched on the other end of the row, swinging with the crowd, even jumping up and down when (if) you score and feeling like you can actually influence the outcome of the game if you shout loud enough is a fun thing that many pitches unfortunately lack these days.

Hopefully the Stadium for the North campaign could bring us one step closer to returning to the days when the Kop was one of the most popular and vocal areas on the pitch.

Liverpool star Fabinho mocks Richarlison with cheeky social media post after derby clash https://faithspixelpatch.com/liverpool-star-fabinho-mocks-richarlison-with-cheeky-social-media-post-after-derby-clash/ Mon, 25 Apr 2022 07:59:36 +0000 https://faithspixelpatch.com/liverpool-star-fabinho-mocks-richarlison-with-cheeky-social-media-post-after-derby-clash/

Liverpool star Fabinho has mocked Richarlison with a cheeky social media post showing his beaten rival Everton, who infuriated Reds fans and Jamie Carragher clutching his face in pain after the pair clashed in the of the fiery Merseyside derby

  • Liverpool beat Everton 2-0 in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon
  • Andy Robertson and Divock Origi scored the goals in the second half
  • Richarlison drew the ire of Liverpool fans and players during the game

Liverpool got the better of Merseyside rivals Everton on Sunday afternoon and midfielder Fabinho couldn’t help but mock Richarlison as he took to social media after the 2-0 win.

The Reds had to work hard to keep the pressure on Manchester City in the title race with Andy Robertson making the breakthrough in the 62nd before Divock Origi sealed all three points in the closing stages.

Tension boiled over in the closing stages of the first half when Richarlison came down easily after a small encounter with Thiago.

Fabinho posted this tweet after his side won the Merseyside derby on Sunday

The Brazilian was greeted with huge boos as he lay on the ground feigning a serious injury, before teammate Abdoulaye Doucoure knocked down Fabinho to spark a clash between the two groups of players.

Richarlison and Everton’s approach certainly frustrated their hosts and the choice of Fabinho’s image for his social media post cannot have been a coincidence.

The midfielder shared a photo of himself dribbling with Richarlison falling, clutching his face behind him.

Captioning the image, he wrote: “What a win!” Until the end, guys!

Richarlison has drawn the ire of Liverpool fans and players with his suspicious behavior

Reds supporters appreciated the post, with the majority of responses centering on Richarlison.

‘Excellent choice for the picture’ wrote one while another said ‘I know you did this to Richarlison on purpose’.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher was unimpressed with Richarlison’s antics.

As a commentator for Sky Sports, he responded to the incident involving the striker saying: “Honestly get up”. Get up, carry on.

‘If Doucoure receives a yellow card because his teammate falls to the ground. Stupid de Doucoure trying to stop the game but Richarlison… there’s nothing wrong with him.’

Ralf Rangnick reveals it was Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision NOT to take the Manchester United penalty https://faithspixelpatch.com/ralf-rangnick-reveals-it-was-cristiano-ronaldos-decision-not-to-take-the-manchester-united-penalty/ Sat, 23 Apr 2022 15:55:25 +0000 https://faithspixelpatch.com/ralf-rangnick-reveals-it-was-cristiano-ronaldos-decision-not-to-take-the-manchester-united-penalty/

‘He just didn’t think he had to take it’: Ralf Rangnick reveals it was Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision NOT to take Man United’s second-half penalty in Arsenal defeat… so as furious fans blame Bruno Fernandes for hitting the post

  • Bruno Fernandes missed a penalty to put Man United level against Arsenal
  • Ralf Rangnick says it was Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision to hand him over to Fernandes
  • Fans have taken to social media to slam the Portuguese over his failure

Manchester United caretaker boss Ralf Rangnick has revealed it was Cristiano Ronaldo’s decision not to take the penalty missed by Bruno Fernandes against Arsenal, as fans took to social media to show their frustration.

Ronaldo took and scored from the penalty spot when the two teams met earlier in the season, when United won 3-2 at Old Trafford.

But it was Bruno who stepped in and hit the post this time as the Red Devils lost 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium and Rangnick says the decision was up to Ronaldo.

He said: “I spoke to him after the game and asked him and he said he just didn’t think he should take it and that’s why he said it would be better if Bruno took it. .”

Fernandes has come under scrutiny from United fans on Twitter, with some saying he shouldn’t have been the one to take the penalty.

One fan tweeted: “Bruno Fernandes or any other player shouldn’t take a penalty when Cristiano Ronaldo is on the pitch.” Period.’

Another accused Fernandes of being a “spoiled child”, saying: “Bruno Fernandes is a spoiled child”. How not to let Ronaldo take this penalty, knowing the importance of the moment. Sums up united season, egos get in the way of players and hurt them

“I still can’t believe they chose @B_Fernandes8 to be our captain when we have @Cristiano. The level of disrespect this team has for Ronaldo is out of this world.” Then Bru-No misses the penalty despite being one of the greatest penalty takers in our team. Wtf is happening? Wrote a third United fan in frustration.

Even Arsenal fan Piers Morgan couldn’t help but joke about the situation. He tweeted: “Big thanks to Bruno Fernandes for insisting on taking United’s penalty when Ronaldo is on the pitch and then doing it.” Comic bad captaincy.

Arsenal took the lead after just three minutes as Nuno Tavares reacted quickly to David De Gea’s save from Bukayo Saka’s strike.

Saka doubled the lead with a 32nd-minute penalty before Ronaldo pulled one back for the visitors two minutes later.

United’s defeat was sealed 20 minutes after Granit Xhaka entered the scoresheet with a powerful long-range strike past De Gea.

Rangnick believes the performance was an improvement on the 4-0 midweek loss to Liverpool, but he regretted part of his side’s defense against the Gunners.

“I think we showed a response, an improved performance compared to the game at Liverpool,” Rangnick said.

“But we still gave an easy goal, an early goal, way too easy, the way we defended at that time, we had two or three chances to clear the ball.”
