The Mathematics of Survival

I’m sure you don’t need me to convince you that tomorrow’s game is massive. However, the way the maths stacks up, it could be pivotal to the rest of our season. Chesterfield are our reference point in the table at the moment. Our first priority has to be to pull away from the threat of relegation, and currently that means putting distance between us and … Continue reading The Mathematics of Survival

PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v AFC Fylde

Wrexham face AFC Fylde for the 7th time desperate for a first win against them. At least in our last clash, two months ago, we managed to score past them, as The Coasters had kept clean sheets in every previous clash. However, despite leading twice we collapsed to a 3-2 defeat in what turned out to be Bryan Hughes’ last game in charge. AFC Fylde … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v AFC Fylde

The 2 Games That Sealed Bryan Hughes’ Fate

I wasn’t looking forward to next Saturday. If the atmosphere was ugly a fortnight ago, what would it have been like against Ebbsfleet, having lost twice against sides that leap-frogged us to get out of the bottom four, leaving us in the relegation mire in the process?

5 Questions Before AFC Fylde v Wrexham AFC

What happens if we lose? It’s the fundamental question of the night. Defeat would surely mean an horrendous atmosphere next Saturday would be inevitable if the status quo remained. The club wanted to do the right thing by backing Hughes last week, but circumstances are in danger of spiralling out of control. Will Lawlor return? With the side leaking goals, and Jake Lawlor finally available … Continue reading 5 Questions Before AFC Fylde v Wrexham AFC

Déjà Vu All Over Again For Wrexham And Graham Barrow

Well, the records just keep tumbling, don’t they? Graham Barrow has gone, a mere 64 days after his first game as manager of Wrexham. Twenty days longer than Brian Clough lasted at Leeds, I suppose. It’s the shortest length of time anyone has lasted in the Racecourse hot seat though, and although we remain within spitting distance of the top spot, you have to ask … Continue reading Déjà Vu All Over Again For Wrexham And Graham Barrow
