Feeling down after last weekend? Worried that history’s repeating itself? Fear not! You’ll feel better when you learn to embrace the flaky nature of all the other promotion contenders. Welcome to the League of Bottlers! Last Tuesday’s results illustrated just how incapable any of the sides at the top of the table are of striking out and winning this darned league. Someone will do it, … Continue reading Hope Springs Eternal In The League of Bottlers!
If we ever needed a strong mentality, it’s today. Last Tuesday’s defeat was a spectacular blow. It wasn’t just that we lost: it was the devastating manner in which we collapsed. Amazingly, as we kicked off we hadn’t let in a goal at home in the first half of a match all season. Indeed, we hadn’t conceded a home goal in open play before the … Continue reading Time To Roll Our Sleeves Up
It came out of nowhere, but Curtis Tilt’s move to Forest Green, or at least somewhere, soon, was inevitable. Its timing might not be ideal, but for a deal we could hardly stop, it’ll turn out to be a good one for Wrexham. First things first: there was little the club could logically do except accept the offer. A piece of brinkmanship by Forest Green, … Continue reading The Departure of Curtis Tilt: Short Term Problem, Long Term Solution

Wrexham need to get back to winning ways in the league after seeing their interest in the FA Cup end so disappointingly last Saturday. The defeat to Gainsborough Trinity ended a run of seven unbeaten cup ties at The Racecourse, and that last defeat was to a Football League club: Oxford United beat us 2-1 in December 2013 in the FA Cup despite Joe Clarke … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham AFC v Barrow AFC
Kevin Wilkin has got me flustered. I’m getting confused what time of year it is, because he’s started making moves to sort out the squad for next year, and it feels far too early. This season I thought it was going to take until Christmas to get a settled side, due to our injury issues. It looks like Mr Wilkin plans to sort things out … Continue reading Three Kings, a baby and a star from the East

In a season where disappointing signings has been a key factors to a some what disappointing campaign, I take a look at a player who’s seemed to have faded out of the team, after having so much promise. Theo Bailey-Jones joined Wrexham after a successful trial with the reds last term and some good performances with the reserves. The young ex-Manchester City trainee looked to … Continue reading The Forgotten Man
I wonder if Andy Morrell might be thinking about Nick Rushton as an option for the second half of the season. His loan is now up at Barrow – he marked his last game for them with a goal in the derby against Workington, and it seems he isn’t too sure what’s going to happen next. @Simms91 an to you mate! Got my last game … Continue reading Crunch Time For Rushton
