I hear you’re a Chester fan now

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

In Case of Emergency

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

Parkinson’s Wrexham Take Wing

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

Back to Macc

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

Keeping The Dream Alive

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 Trophy of Champions

It’s that time of year where the birds start to sing, the trees start to bloom and managers start to reconsider their attitude to the FA Trophy. We’re reaching the point of the competition where managers who were previously reluctant to commit to playing a full-strength team start wondering if it’s worth going all-in and trying to win the darn thing. That means we could … Continue reading The Trophy of Champions

And Now The Good News

Having reflected on negative behaviour last week, I thought I’d redress the balance by reminding everybody of the positivity that can be created when a football club’s fans rally together. Of course, we all know of the excellent work done by the WST, the Racecourse Foundation, the Disabled Supporters Association and our Disability Liaison Officer for a number of years. Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds … Continue reading And Now The Good News

They shout loudest, but represent nobody

Well done Wrexham AFC. Faced with an uncomfortable situation on Saturday, we were firm and clear in our message. We will not tolerate behaviour which is not worthy of the club. Last Saturday was a wonderful day, with Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds rounding off a tumultuous, historic week by finally getting to attend a game at The Racecourse. It was an occasion we’ve been … Continue reading They shout loudest, but represent nobody
