Wrexham Must Find An Alternative To Kitchen Sink Dramas

There’s an unnerving sense of déjà vu creeping into the end of Wrexham’s season. A lack of creativity and finishing power once again threatens to derail our promotion push. This isn’t something you can blame Bryan Hughes for. The squad he inherited was formed by one manager and adapted by another before landing in his lap. All he can do is look for cosmetic alterations … Continue reading Wrexham Must Find An Alternative To Kitchen Sink Dramas

#WxmAnorak: Gateshead 1 Wrexham 1

First time Wrexham have scored a goal in injury time which changed the result of the match since a Dagenham own goal earned a 1-0 win in October 2017, 71 games ago.

Common sense demanded that we dismantled the attacking portion of the side last … Continue reading Was Scott Boden Discarded Too Soon by Wrexham AFC?

Whoever Gives Sam A Scarf, That’s His Home

So, should Shrewsbury be worried right now? They’ve just appointed a manager with 22 league games under his belt as a manager, all at non-league level. He’s got off to a good start, but quite apart from the obvious risks involved when you draw a conclusion from a tiny sample size, results don’t tell you everything. I need to establish some context first, in case … Continue reading Whoever Gives Sam A Scarf, That’s His Home

The Admirable Carrington

The usual noun applied to a player who has spent a long time at one club is “servant”. Players who stick around for a while are “great servants”, they’ve “served” their club well. It seems a belittling description: the player is portrayed as something subservient. Talented strikers, whose flashy exploits earn them a move to bigger things, are “stars”. Loyalty earns you a rather less … Continue reading The Admirable Carrington
