Wrexham has many public weapons in our pursuit of promotion (and world domination!) However, it’s worth acknowledging a rather potent secret weapon in our arsenal. The quality of photography available to the club is remarkable, and it might not be immediately apparent, this is an immense benefit as we try to push forwards. Great photography and Wrexham AFC are no strangers, of course.. As a … Continue reading Quality Photography: Wrexham’s Secret Weapon
Phil Parkinson spent the Summer accumulating strength in depth so his side wouldn’t fold under the effects of an injury crisis as we did last season. It’s an appropriate moment to take stock of Parkinson’s squad replenishment as we’ve finally seen what Jordan Tunnicliffe has to offer. Tunnicliffe was an eye-catching capture. He enjoyed an impressive season with Crawley Town in League Two last season, … Continue reading Tunnicliffe Takes His Opportunity
I’m delighted to say that the Final Whistle podcast, which I started off at the LDV Vans Trophy final in 2005, is the longest-running football podcast in the world. I’ve been researching this for over a year, and no podcast which began before Final Whistle is still running. An American podcast began before us, but no longer features football, while The Guardian and The Times … Continue reading Final Whistle: The Oldest Football Podcast in the World!
The good times continue to roll, and the remarkable crowds continue to roll in at The Racecourse. Now we just need to ensure that Wrexham Council do their duty next month and ensure that we can include even more local people in this uplifting experience. We enjoyed our biggest crowd of the season on Tuesday, as we broke the 10,000 barrier for the first time … Continue reading Time For Wrexham Council To Step Up To The Plate
History was made on Tuesday night. For the first time, Wrexham fans cheered a Chester goal! What could make such a remarkable thing come to pass? The short answer is that if both cross-border rivals won their FA Cup replays we’d clash in a barn-storming first round tie. The long answer is considerably more nuanced. When you get what you desire, it can mean you … Continue reading I hear you’re a Chester fan now
It felt like a bit of a surprise on Tuesday when we changed our formation. The surprise was that it didn’t work. We didn’t earn ourselves an equaliser, and we failed to mount late pressure on Notts County’s wobbly defence, despite having carved a number of good opportunities out throughout the match. That was disappointing, because we’ve regularly fought back successfully after switching shape. There’s … Continue reading In Case of Emergency
The only bad news to come out of last Saturday’s joyous spanking of Torquay United was the injury to Jacob Mendy. The left back went off half way through the first half with what looked like an unpleasant muscular injury. It was a terrible shame, as he has started to illustrate with a flourish why Phil Parkinson thought he would improve his already impressive squad. … Continue reading Parkinson’s Wrexham Take Wing
The long-awaited “Welcome to Wrexham” premiered in the USA yesterday: here’s a selection of the rave reviews it got: ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ Review: Two Actors and Soccer Lovers, One Goal – Wall Street Journal How two Hollywood stars plan to save a team, and a town, ‘desperate for a lifeline’ – LA Times Welcome to Wrexham: How Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney plan to revive … Continue reading “Welcome to Wrexham”‘s Here!

So, how are we feeling? It’s difficult to imagine a greater sense of excitement at the start of the season. Perhaps it’s more of a sense of expectation, and any long-suffering Wrexham fan would agree that expectation is not a word we’d normally use. Sure, I’ve felt hopeful on the eve of a new campaign. As recently as last Summer I looked at the likes … Continue reading New Season, New Sensations
A local rivalry re-sparks today, albeit in a friendly game. But is there such a thing as a friendly when Wrexham play Macclesfield? This new iteration of Macclesfield has a lot in common with Wrexham. Okay, on the surface they have their own reality show, the highly entertaining “Robbie Savage: Making Macclesfield“. Yes, they have a well known figure at the helm. But the similarities … Continue reading Back to Macc
It’s home kit reveal day, which seems to have become as important as the football to a lot of fans these days. On Friday I’ll go through the reasons why the club did well to get the Red One out today, but for now let’s stick to the basics. Is it lovely? I often find that the things I like most take a bit of … Continue reading Red Fashion
Can Wrexham still win the title? We still believe, but circumstances have pushed that belief further into the realms of hope than we’d like. This has been an incredible season, and since the fixtures were announced we knew it was all leading up to this epic encounter with ancient rivals Stockport County. What we didn’t realise at the time was that a quirk in the … Continue reading Keeping The Dream Alive
The most boring, and yet also the most understandable, question that I’m asked is “Why did they buy Wrexham?”
As you might imagine, I get asked it quite a lot! Continue reading Why Wrexham?
