The Contract, Still Intact

“The grabbing hands, grab all they can, all for themselves, after all it’s a competitive world” -Depeche Mode Contract Law has not been a friend of Wrexham FC in recent years, and I’m quaking in my boots after several previous significant setbacks.  I’m not made happier by news such as ‘Keates shakes hands on new deal’ or ‘player asks for more time to consider his options’. … Continue reading The Contract, Still Intact

Indeed, that fact that the one decent save either keeper made, a sharp low stop … Continue reading Chester FC v Wrexham FC Tactical Report

How he deploys his fresh-from-the-box international centre back is one of the main items I’ll be monitoring. Dave Artell’s season has taken a turn which I certainly didn’t foresee. I accept that he divides opinion, and there are … Continue reading Crunch Time for the Rock of Gibraltar
