Ten games in……………..

Brian Flynn always looked at the season in ten game periods and with Wrexham having played their tenth league game of the season at Haig Avenue on Tuesday I thought a first review of the season so far was called for. So where are we? Second in the table only trailing pre season favourites Luton Town by goal difference indicates a good start to the campaign … Continue reading Ten games in……………..

Time to stand up and be counted

After suffering their first defeat of the fledgling conference season last Saturday at Barrow Dean Saunders men need to get back on track as they welcome York City to The Racecourse tomorrow (Saturday). The best start to a season for over a century will have been wasted if the Reds do not build on it and push on. With no game in midweek to get … Continue reading Time to stand up and be counted

The Benefits of a Settled Side

Two games I have seen this week have once again brought home the number of players that have passed through the revolving door at The Racecourse over the last few years. Firstly although unable to travel to Wembley on Tuesday the appearances of Andrew Crofts, Neil Taylor and Joe Allon confirmed that players can go on to bigger and better things after leaving North Wales. … Continue reading The Benefits of a Settled Side

Is today the biggest test of the season so far?

I am not particularly superstitious but as Mike and Marc Williams roll into town today with their Kidderminster Harriers colleagues are the gods stacking up against Dean’s red and white army? Having overcome the challenge of ,what I thought was an average, Fleetwood Town side on Bank Holiday Monday the Reds boss has been awarded the BSB Premier Manager of the Month for August. Historically this … Continue reading Is today the biggest test of the season so far?

Another day another dollar

Wouldn’t it be nice if that was the case at Wrexham FC where one day runs into another, the club operates smoothly and doesn’t attract asset stripping vultures, the team is playing well and the fans are all happy and concentrating on the next match, forums debating football related issues and not the alleged past criminal activities of x,y and z. But wait – after so many … Continue reading Another day another dollar

Football at last!!

It was such a relief to be sitting at The Racecourse last Saturday watching a game and providing the commentary for hospital radio and Wrexham player alongside the legend that is Mark Griffiths or Griff 92 as he is more commonly known!! With the off field drama put to one side for a couple of hours we could focus on the action and to be honest … Continue reading Football at last!!

Please Give Generously!

Well as I sit writing this weekly view from the commentary box Wrexham fans are doing everything they can to raise sufficient funds to pay the players, who perhaps understandably, are reluctant to play pre season friendlies in case they get injured and are unable to find a new club should the worst happen. What a shame that a promising pre season has been interrupted … Continue reading Please Give Generously!

>Three games in to the new season……..

and the roller coaster has started. A good three points without playing that well against Eastbourne, the now inevitable loss to Creepy Crawley and a hard earned win against York on Tuesday night. What have we learned from this early sample of BSP football: Firstly the positives- Sam Russell has got better and is looking to be a good signing. Going into the season with … Continue reading >Three games in to the new season……..
