Wrexham’s Game at Borehamwood Illustrates How Weird Football Is

Just a quick word of warning before I begin. What I’m about to write could easily sound like an argument against data analysis in football, but it’s nothing of the sort. Intelligent, through analysis can only help in the preparation of any team, and I look forward to the day when the football dinosaur is extinct: I’m sure I’ve already mentioned Gary Mills’ reluctance (or … Continue reading Wrexham’s Game at Borehamwood Illustrates How Weird Football Is

Preview | Borehamwood v Wrexham AFC

Wrexham will be looking to defend a remarkable record at Borehamwood tonight. Our record against them stands in stark contrast to how we’ve done against next Saturday’s opponents, Dover. In eight clashes we’ve won seven, the only time we’ve failed to beat them being when we lost to a highly dubious penalty at The Racecourse two seasons ago. Last season we enjoyed our best season … Continue reading Preview | Borehamwood v Wrexham AFC

1-0 at Borehamwood Again Please

Luke Young’s goal last Saturday brought some relief as we ended our goalless run at five matches, although that is the third longest barren streak in the club’s history. However, we go into today’s match having already equalled an unwanted club record. Our last away goal was back in November, when Brad Walker’s massively deflected shot at Maidstone earned us a point. Since then we’ve … Continue reading 1-0 at Borehamwood Again Please

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Borehamwood

Until last season, our record against Borehamwood had a very pleasing symmetry to it. We’d played them five times, and won each encounter. Furthermore, they’d only managed one goal against us, and that was a penalty, as we racked up four 1-0 wins. Last April that all changed in a bad tempered and controversial match. Manny Smith was harshly judged to have pushed his man … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Borehamwood

January – a key month for Wrexham Football Club

Wrexham manager Dean Keates has noted there will be changes to the squad during the January transfer window. Some things I think he needs to do: Loan in fresh, talented players full of potential Loan out some fringe players eg. Anthony Barry, for more matches to be on top form at the business end of the season. If I’m being totally honest, I believe the … Continue reading January – a key month for Wrexham Football Club
