DEAR Denis, Cometh the hour, cometh the man. This is your big moment and I hope you seize it.
A few weeks ago, you said that taking Wrexham up into the second division - against all the odds and on a shoestring budget - would be the most significant achievement of your managerial career. After the fantastic 2-1 victories at Hull and Shrewsbury, you are now on the verge of that triumph. Our destiny is in our own hands - or should I say in the hands of you and your players. Please don't blow it.
Progress up the table has been slow. On August 24 we went second in the league after the 1-0 victory at Macclesfield; exactly a month later we moved up to third after defeating Darlington by the same scoreline at Feethams.
For the rest of the time, we have been out of the picture. We have occupied fifth and sixth spot on several occasions, but never had the self-belief to make third spot our own. Now we have - and we have GOT to remain there to escape the trauma of the play-offs.
Last year and this, fans have had their criticisms of you and your style.
The new tactical formation has come under fire, as has the home form of your side. But at the moment - with four wins and four draws in the last eight games - you are the man, the main man, and every single Wrexham supporter is behind you.
I have had my criticisms, but at present I can only marvel at some of the things you have done. Our away form is inspired, Morrell can't stop scoring and Trundle is working his socks off for the team. Lee Jones is back on the scoresheet too - what more can anyone want?
Away from the headline-grabbers, other things have happened too:
Ferguson, Green and Whitley have evolved into a harrying, hard-tackling midfield unit - with lots of experience and lots of savvy. At the back, Lawrence has mutated from liability to lynchpin in the space of a few games and Carey is, well, Carey. New boy Morgan looks assured and Holmes is now pushing Paul Edwards for a place on the left flank.
It's all coming together very nicely - and that's not even mentioning Carlos Edwards on the right, who could push Morrell hard for the player of the year gong.
Of course, it's easy to get carried away - but we shouldn't. As you know, there are still big tests left for the team (Kidderminster and Bury away) and also the odd banana skin (Leyton Orient away on the last Tuesday of April).
Respect to you, Denis. A few months ago, some fans (myself included) scoffed when your contract was renewed - with no questions asked and your side wallowing in 12th place in the league.
If you take us up, you have every right to ram these criticisms back down our throats.
Denis - go for it! Promotion will be a magnificent achievement and I wish you well.
