Ted Lasso Sends Boxes Of Biscuits To Wrexham AFC

One of the more bemusing squabbles in the football pre-season has come to an end as Wrexham AFC received 50 boxes of biscuits from Ted Lasso as a peace offering for questioning the new ownership’s commitment to the historic club.

In a rather tongue in cheek post on Twitter, Wrexham’s finest hold up boxes upon boxes of biscuits said to be from Mr Lasso as an apology for doubting the commitment of new owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.

It all started when Ted Lasso, an Apple TV+ show about the eponymous American football coach (played by Jason Sudekis) who is forced to run a Premier League team out of spite by its owner and tries to navigate the very different world with a folksy optimism.

One of the characters in the show, Leslie Higgins (Jeremy Swift), made a joke about the new owners, which led to them publishing a joke cease-and-desist notice on Twitter, even referencing Mr McElhenney’s series Mystic Quest on the platform.

In the post, they demanded two boxes of biscuits and an apology by the start of the season, roughly 45 minutes after the post was made.

It may not be too surprising that they would reference Wrexham AFC’s new ownership group, as the series itself was inspired by the disastrous takeover of Chester City by former American football coach Terry Smith.

The team was in administration at the time and was close to being wound up, and so to cut costs Mr Smith appointed himself as team manager despite knowing very little about the sport.

To his credit, he managed to quickly get rid of the debt that nearly ruined the team but it came at the expense of the team’s results, which saw them get kicked out of the Football League.

The difference between the two is that the two Wrexham owners are taking a team just out of the EFL, so the pressure is less intense to avoid losing rather than to win. As well as this, Neither Mr Reynolds nor Mr McElhenny plan to manage the club themselves.
