4-3-3 Offers More Threat

Did you enjoy Mike Fondop’s rather clever overhead kick? Rob Lainton’s penalty save? Well, my favourite moment of the Dover game came in the eleventh minute. There’s some nice build-up play which ends with Kevin Roberts slinging a good cross to the far post, which the centre back Max Schmoll has to head behind for a corner. What I liked about it wasn’t the fluency … Continue reading 4-3-3 Offers More Threat

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Borehamwood

Until last season, our record against Borehamwood had a very pleasing symmetry to it. We’d played them five times, and won each encounter. Furthermore, they’d only managed one goal against us, and that was a penalty, as we racked up four 1-0 wins. Last April that all changed in a bad tempered and controversial match.

PREVIEW: Dover Athletic v Wrexham AFC

Four times we’ve undertaken the long trip to Dover, the most distant domestic opponents in our history, and have only returned unbeaten once. That happy occasion was in February 2017, and even then the point we earned came about in rather fortunate circumstances.

However, on this occasion, perhaps our greatest hope lies in repetition. We may have a new manager, but the season … Continue reading 2018-19 Wrexham AFC Season Preview

How Akil Wright Can Be Key For Wrexham

Patience is a virtue, as Akil Wright might be about to find out. It’s not just Wright who is likely to feel frustration at his lack of first team opportunities in 2018. He signed a long term contract five days after the transfer window opened, to widespread satisfaction from the fans. They’d enjoyed the promising thrust of his play as he looked to bring energy … Continue reading How Akil Wright Can Be Key For Wrexham

PODCAST | Wrexham 0 Macclesfield Town 1

Disappointment on the opening day as a well-disciplined Macclesfield claim victory thanks to a long range shot from Noe Baba. James and Mark look back on the game, and find some positives. They also manage to praise man of the match Shaun Pearson’s ballboy skills and critically compare “Sons of Anarchy” with “Silicon Valley.” Continue reading PODCAST | Wrexham 0 Macclesfield Town 1
