> While the win over Notts County might have been a false dawn, there was at least one definite positive coming from it. Neil Roberts’ unequivocal announcement that he wants to stay at The Racecourse come what may is a delight (hear it on the latest podcast at http://www.wrexhamfan.co.uk). I’m wary to say it was unexpected as we all know what the club means to … Continue reading >Robbo Stays!
>A long lingering death like we’ve experienced this season is particularly hard. For a long time we’ve known there was little hope, but naturally we tried convince ourselves otherwise. I’ve constantly been looking at the fixtures, arguing that we can haul ourselves out of trouble if we win certain key games, and even before the Notts County game I believed in that argument. The difference … Continue reading >Face The Facts
> Brian Little told us to be prepared for some of our favourites to leave, and this morning I had to break the news to my ten-year-old lad that his favourite player is on his way.Ben’s attachment to Mark Jones is possibly historical; his first season watching football coincided with Jones’ annus mirabilis, scoring nearly twenty goals from midfield in a mediocre side. In fact, … Continue reading >Goodbye Jonah
>As we waited for Brian Little to come out after the game Joey Jones made a rare appearance wandering out of the tunnel and was plainly furious about something. We soon found out what-the team! Joey didn’t expand on it, but it transpires that he marched into the changing room after the game ended to tell the players exactly what he thought of them; Wrexham … Continue reading >Joey Speaks For Us All
>This slow death is deeply confusing. Realistically speaking we’ve been down for a few weeks now; it might turn out that everyone else exceeded our final points total last month. On the other hand, it’s very easy to construct and argument for our survival! With Notts County coming up next weekend it has already been pointed out that should they lost at Accrington today and … Continue reading >All Eyes On Stanley!
> http://www.wrexhamafc.premiumtv.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10311~1287208,00.html As reported above, Brian Little has signed a two year contract with the club. I hope it’s the beginning of the end of the grimmest period in our history, but there’ve been so many false dawns lately that I feel I can only feel hopefully once something concrete has been achieved. Little rightly points out that we should judge him once he is … Continue reading >Two More Years of Little
> http://www.wrexhamafc.premiumtv.co.uk/page/NewsDetail/0,,10311~1274476,00.html I feel very conflicted at this one, not least because I’ve never heard of someone retiring because they have a hamstring problem which is pretty much cleared up! I suppose this is good news. Williams’ last touch in professional football, if indeed it was, was his only goal for us and he showed little to justify the excitement which surrounded his arrival this … Continue reading >Eifion Retires
>I don’t usually see much point in trying to predict runs of matches to see how a league table will end up; recent results at the bottom of League Two show why that’s a mug’s game! However, I’m so desperate to see us somehow dig ourselves out of this mess that I feel a need to work out the likely results the other sides will … Continue reading >Tortured Maths
>Last Saturday reminded me of an epic match in our not so distant past, and as I started researching the column I was surprised to find that the two games were played on the same date. Coincidentally, our match against Dagenham and Redbridge on Easter Monday took place exactly eighteen years after a titanic clash with Colchester United. The two games shared a lot of … Continue reading >Clutching At Straws
> Last Saturday left me feeling more confident about our survival than I have for some time, but the Faustian pact Brian Little struck to haul us out of trouble might still come back to haunt us. The win over Bury was patchy at times, I admit; at 1-1 Bury looked the more likely winners for me. However, we stuck it out and earned three … Continue reading >Hurry Back!
>It has been frustrating to see the side put together a decent run of results and yet still see us rock bottom of the table. You’d think the others strugglers would have the decency to drop loads of points and let us clamber over them, but instead they’ve been remarkably successful for a bunch of relegation-dodgers! However, a league table taken from Day One of … Continue reading >The Football League is Upside Down!
>Can Michael Proctor save us? Hopefully his scoring form can continue-the last Wrexham player to score in four consecutive games for us was Mark Jones at the start of last season. The constant impression Proctor gves is that he’s something of a mercurial player. In and out of games and, as the season progresses, in and out of form. However, there’s always a sense that … Continue reading >Four in Four
