Wrexham FC’s Journey 2011 – 2012

As I’ve gone through the last few days after the Wrexham vs Luton match, I have found myself trying to put the whole story of the season into context. I dug out the newspapers that for some reason I had been accumulating through the last 12 months and tried to do something constructive with them alongside photo’s I have seen or taken through the year. I hope anyone that watches it, enjoys it. Continue reading Wrexham FC’s Journey 2011 – 2012

The Sound of (Wrexham FC) Music

The Remorse of The Gambler

Forgive me father. It has been 34 years and 5 months since my last confession. Being honest, I’ve never been to confession and I’m not catholic. I am however crippled with guilt and shame of late, and believe I owe you all an apology. You see the problem is that all of this recent business with Fleetwood winning all of their games is, I think, all my fault. I’ve never been a great gambler and can say with confidence that an overall view of my wins and losses over the years would begin with a negative sign. Mid Feb, I … Continue reading The Remorse of The Gambler
