PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Tranmere Rovers

The last time we faced Tranmere in the league at The Racecourse was a 2-2 draw in October 2015. Ironically there might be as many players who appeared in a white shirt that night in the Wrexham side as there are survivors from Gary Mills’ selection, as Martin Riley played for Rovers whereas only Robbie Evans and Mark Carrington remain with us from the Wrexham … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Tranmere Rovers

Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values Gary Mills has been experimenting, he’s been forced to.

Andy Bishop: Wrexham FC’s History Man

So who’s the most significant figure in recent Wrexham history? Kevin Wilkin? Dean Keates? Neil Ashton? How about Andy Bishop? His fortunes have perhaps shaped the last couple of years more than anyone else’s. At the start of last season Bishop’s signature represented more than just the completion of a transfer deal. He was the signing on whom Andy Morrell unwittingly staked his job. The … Continue reading Andy Bishop: Wrexham FC’s History Man

Bishop’s Move Vindicates Morrell

Reeling Andy Bishop in was a big coup for Andy Morrell, and his arrival opens up some interesting tactical options. First and foremost, signing Bishop is a vindication of Morrell’s approach to the transfer window. His decision not to be rushed into moves, preferring to sign a player because he’ll improve the squad rather than rush into it simply because people are getting twitchy, was … Continue reading Bishop’s Move Vindicates Morrell

Our ever-growing obsession with the Cod Army!

Fleetwood Town, a team that did not even have full time players until the end of the 2009-10 season, now an obsession to all us Wrexham fans.

Eight times this season Fleetwood have scored in injury time. An incredible record … Continue reading Our ever-growing obsession with the Cod Army!
