Wrexham AFC Mustn’t Panic, Just Play To Their Strengths

I was feeling more positive about this season than I’d expected to until Monday. That certainly gave me cause to reassess things The performance at Hartlepool was poor. Frankly, the clearest indication of that was the low quality of the home side’s performance. The excellent Liam Noble aside, they didn’t look too clever. Okay, so Gime Toure scored two as well but the striker, who … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Mustn’t Panic, Just Play To Their Strengths

So this is the Wrexham side you voted for as our best eleven from the National League years.  I was planning to write about the side I picked and why it’s different from the one which the polls returned, but actually, I only disagree over one position, and even then I’m a little reluctant about it!
