Putting a comedy Brazilian commentary over Andy Morrell’s goal of the season trophy winner seemed like just a bit of fun at the time. When a radio station picked it up and ran a feature on Wrexham’s inexplicable popularity in Brazil, though, it was hard to resist offering them an interview and pretending to be the commentator in question! By the way, I don’t speak … Continue reading FORGOTTEN VIDEO | When Brazil Fell In Love With Andy Morrell
It came out of nowhere, but Curtis Tilt’s move to Forest Green, or at least somewhere, soon, was inevitable. Its timing might not be ideal, but for a deal we could hardly stop, it’ll turn out to be a good one for Wrexham. First things first: there was little the club could logically do except accept the offer. A piece of brinkmanship by Forest Green, … Continue reading The Departure of Curtis Tilt: Short Term Problem, Long Term Solution
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

Fasten your seatbelts. We’ve ridden the storm and now the genuinely serious business can begin. It would be rather tardy of me to suggest that the key run of fixtures starts now. After all, we’ve just played the top three back to back! However, having come out of those games in pretty good condition, we now get down to the real nitty-gritty. Five games remain, … Continue reading Wrexham AFC: The National League King Makers

Ever since I’ve been a kid there have been certain clichés which people trot out about Wrexham. One of my personal favourites is that they don’t want to get promoted, a gripe against a perceived lack of ambition which has always been a load of nonsense (apart, perhaps, for a certain period in our history when it’s quite conceivable that there were people in the … Continue reading Testing The Wrexham AFC Old Wives Tales
I’m confused. Going into last weekend’s excellent win over Barrow I was concerned by the direction this season was taking. Three points later and I’m looking at a league table which has us one point off the play-offs and wondering if I was right to be concerned in the first place. A closer examination of the table only makes it more pleasing. Three of the … Continue reading So What did Last Saturday Actually Mean?
What a super chirpy little club Forest Green Rovers are. Not only are they eccentric champions of the little guy, they serve Vegan food, thus protecting our cute lambs and piggy wiggys from being minced, chomped and abused by the less enlightened. They’re getting some great press for team success and their caring, supposedly forward thinking sustainable approach. Well here’s some bad press : they … Continue reading Forest Green Rovers – A serious threat to the environment
