If you’re a Wrexham fan you’ll have been brought up to believe a lot of “truths” about the club: we always lose on TV, and on artificial pitches; in the Good Old Days we always got five-figure crowds for home games; we don’t really want to go up (that’s a bizarrely persistent one!); and we always do badly against sides at the bottom of the … Continue reading Do Wrexham’s old players always score past us?
Can we talk about how we talk about football? We try to pigeon hole everything in our lives. Our desire to label and categorise means every film must have a genre, every band must fit into a musical category, and every footballer has to fulfil a cliché.

Tomorrow is Dean Keates’ hundredth game as Wrexham manager. He’s the sixteenth person to reach that milestone, and boasts the fifth best league loss percentage in our history.

Billy Morris was in the Racecourse hot seat twice in the early 1960s, but … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

We’re entering the decisive point of our season already. If Dean Keates can refurbish his squad quickly enough, we can set our sights on climbing the table; if the process takes longer, we’ll have to dig in for a long scrap against relegation. I’ve no doubt Keates is the man to haul is out of this mess. His credentials for removing passengers and recruiting players … Continue reading Making Up For Past Mistakes
As the search of a new manager goes into its second week, the importance of getting this decision right and exploring all possibilities is obvious. We have suffered such upheaval since dropping out of the Football League – 9 managers in 11 years – that we desperately need to select someone who will not only do a good job, but will stick around to build … Continue reading Dial K For Keatsy
While we’ve lost our last two away games at Ebbsfleet, conceding seven goals in the process as we suffered our two heaviest defeats in this fixture, we’re enjoying our best run of home games against them.
