Okay, so we’ve tried three at the back. Can we put it back in its box now? I’m not convinced the Orient game was the right point to experiment, and I don’t particularly feel that we need to search for a Plan B. In general, when fans and the media in Britain talk about a Plan B, it tends to be shorthand for something drastic: … Continue reading Back Three Plan B’s Not For Me
I think a bit of perspective is in order. Obviously losing four in a row is a bad thing. However, we’ve not hit crisis point yet. In mid-January we’re four points off the top of the table, and one point off a position which would guarantee us a one-off home match in the semi-finals of the play-offs. Would you have taken that situation at the … Continue reading Don’t Panic!
Ben Tollitt’s announcement that he’d like to extend his stay at Wrexham was music to my ears. I hope we are able to make it happen. For me, Tollitt looks like a potential solution to our lack of a cutting edge. Fast, direct, able to take men on and willing to shoot from the edge of the area, he feels like the player most likely … Continue reading More Tollitt, Please!
We’re still getting to know our new manager, but we learned something interesting about him this week: he likes to get his transfer business done early. There are certainly no flies on Graham Barrow when it comes to sorting out his signings. Within a week of the transfer window opening he’d drafted in two new strikers, converted a loan into a permanent deal and made … Continue reading How Scoring Five Can Show You Need More Cutting Edge
Our record in the second round of the FA Trophy is rather mixed. In 10 previous seasons in the competition, we’ve reached this stage six times, and on three of those we’ve gone through to the next round. We’ve never lost at home in the second round, but having said that, we’ve never beaten a side from the same division as us at this stage … Continue reading 50/50 for Wrexham at this point of the FA Trophy
At half time in the Salford game, we discussed with the Calon FM listeners who Wrexham’s player of 2018 was. There were lots of good candidates, but one clear winner. Shaun Pearson continues to set the example which others follow. Pearson made his 75th appearance for Wrexham in that match, and of course it wasn’t how he’d want to celebrate that milestone. However there were … Continue reading Shaun Pearson and Wrexham AFC: The Perfect Match
We finally ended our dreadful run against Dover Athletic on the first day of the season when we managed to beat for the first time at the ninth attempt. Today, we go in search of a first home victory over The Whites. Our last two home games against Dover were goalless draws, and the year before that saw them emerge with a 1-0 win. You … Continue reading Wrexham Must End Dover Drought
We’d better get promoted this season, because Mike Newell owes me. I should explain, although the thought of just leaving it there does amuse me. I’m no gambler, and could pretty much reel off the bets I’ve placed in my entire life. A big reason why I steer clear of the bookies is my tragic record of near misses. Newell is responsible for the closest … Continue reading Mike Newell Owes Me
We’ve only welcomed Solihull Moors to The Racecourse three times, but already there have been some eventful clashes between us. Their first game in North Wales was an FA Trophy second round tie in December 2012, which you could argue was the closest we came to defeat before our victory over Grimsby in the final the following March. Solihull Moors were the only side to … Continue reading Wrexham Want Solihull Moors Of The Same
Meet the new boss; same as the old boss. That seems to be how a lot of Wrexham fans have greeted the appointment of Graham Barrow, but I don’t think they’re right. Clearly the club evaluated other options, which might be interesting indicators of our future targets. However, those deals all had practical drawbacks, while the appointment of Barrow is simple, ensures the squad have … Continue reading Barrow Makes Sense For Wrexham AFC
