Will 3 at the back work? We might not see it today, but the three-man defence we’ve unveiled in our pre-season friendlies is a departure for Bryan Hughes. Clearly it’s intended to address our lack of attacking verve in recent seasons, allowing us to get more men forwards, and he’s recruited players to suit that system. But we looked very open when we switched to … Continue reading 5 Questions Before the Wrexham AFC – Barrow AFC Match

It was only yesterday that it occurred to me to check out just how difficult we found it to score goals last season. The answer, you might not be surprised to discover, is historically bad! Our top scorer in the league overall was Shaun Pearson, with 6 goals. Obviously that’s a remarkably low total, but it turns out that’s just half the story. 6 is … Continue reading Where Have All The Scorers Gone?

The Easter Weekend fixtures are traditionally seen as the point which can make or break a season, and that feels particularly true for Wrexham this year. With Easter falling unusually late, there will only be one match left in the campaign after the Easter Monday trip to Halifax, so our chances of a top three finish could be decided by our weekend double header. Only … Continue reading Wrexham AFC’s Easter Record
Our magnificent pounding of Ebbsfleet put me in a bit of an awkward position on Saturday. Our heavy rotation of the side over a number of games had me feeling a little uneasy, so I invited fans’ opinions on it for a half time debate on Calon FM. Of course, by that point, our radically-altered side was 4-0 up, and the debate felt a little … Continue reading Rotation, Rotation, Rotation
I’d like to open with a promise. I will genuinely do my best to make no mention in this column of Chester conceding eight goals last Saturday. I have to admit that I’m not confident I’ll manage it. We return to Eastleigh today, the scene of one of my most enjoyable commentating experiences. It came on the last day of the 2016-17 season, a grim … Continue reading Adventures in National League Commentary
Each of the four games we’ve played at Eastleigh has ended in a draw, although we’ve constantly come closer and closer to emerging with all three points, and never came as close as we did last season. Our first visit, in March 2015, saw us take the lead twice through fine strikes from Louis Moult and Neil Ashton, only to see The Spitfires manage two … Continue reading PREVIEW Eastleigh v Wrexham AFC
