The semi-final victory over Torquay might feel like the key point in our season, but if you really want to see where things turned round, have a look at the goalless draw we played out with The Gulls a month ago. Since that match, everything has changed for the better. That was a moribund match. We played with a stodgy midfield diamond which made us … Continue reading How A Month of Progress Allowed Wrexham To Beat Torquay

All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. So is 4-4-2 the answer? We’ve played that system for four games, winning three and losing one, and all of a sudden we find ourselves three points … Continue reading Have Wrexham Cooked Up The Answer?
So Mark Carrington’s appeal came to nothing and now we’ll begin to see whether the thinness of our squad is going to be an insurmountable obstacle this season. The appeal was built on sound foundations as the accuracy of the referee’s description of the foul in his report is often what’s under scrutiny rather than the challenge itself. However, if we ignore the cynicism of Adam … Continue reading Carrington’s Suspension Tests Wrexham’s Resources
This week of all weeks when moving away to university and leaving North Wales for the first time in all of my 18 years, probably wasn’t the best time to go on my first ‘proper’ away day. You see I have travelled away from the Racecourse for Wrexham games before, but I don’t count twice at Wembley, Chester or the Welsh Premier/Colwyn Bay pre-season fixtures. You … Continue reading Lawn Mowers And A Lidl Car Park

The problem with season-defining matches is you can only spot them with hindsight. The 6-1 beating at Crewe in 1992, the 1-0 loss at Exeter in 2003 and the decision by Dean Saunders to play Jamie Tolley behind the strikers at Kettering in and throw caution to the wind all stand out as moments which, either by developing a new way of playing or offering … Continue reading Forest Green Rovers 0 Wrexham 1
Here’s the Forest Green podcast. Continue reading Forest Green v Wrexham Podcast
Positives: We now have a right-footed and a left-footed option at free kicks: Dean Keates and Louis Moult. The terrific work rate when we didn’t have the ball. The noisy away support, who were amply rewarded not only by the result but also by Lee Hughes! The more compact look the side had without the ball as a result of the shift to 4-4-2. … Continue reading Balance Sheet: FGR v Wrexham

Going into the new 2014/2015 season, there are many questions to be answered, but for many the biggest wonder is how will Andy Bishop get on? The one time Conference goal machine for York in 2006, is now back and in all honesty, struggling for goals. In November 2012 he joined on loan, under Andy Morrell and his two goals in four games meant his … Continue reading AB10
“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
Before home games I normally drop my Grandparents off at Cashconverters, which provides me with just enough money to get a seat behind the goal. It’s quite a cosy shop, or so my Grandparents tell me when I pick them up on payday. On the way to the ground it gives me a great thrill when Mark Griffiths (International Goalkeeper, etc ,etc , etc) waves … Continue reading What Do We Want…When Do We Want It?
