Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. There’s no history to report on between Wrexham and Eastleigh as the Hampshire side have never played at this level before so our paths haven’t crossed. Facing … Continue reading Wrexham v The New Boys
>I can’t wait for the Grays game. There’s nothing more thrilling than a game late in the season between the two sides that have established a runaway lead at the top of the table and stand locked level with just four games left. Only one of them can win it, and their clash might just decide once and for all who wins the title. The … Continue reading >The Title Decider!
>Could a clue to Grays’ defeat lie in their inability to assimilate new signing Fola Onibuje? He certainly didn’t seem to be welcome in their huddle! You’d think if any club was used to making new players welcome it’s be Grays!! Continue reading >Huddle leads to toil and trouble

>I’m not one to rush to judgement but, sitting in a train travelling across Rainham Marshes after watching THAT, I feel I’ve hit a turning point. I’ve said it seemed to me that last Saturday was the breaking point for a lot of fans; for me it was today. It was awful, disjointed, pointless, clueless. And they’re the good points! Talking to DaveRoberts before the … Continue reading >Disgraceful
>This is the life! Turning up nice and early at a ground, finding a dicey unsecured wireless connection and watching some comical centre circle preparation by a particularly unco-ordinated dance troupe who seem to have met each other for the first time when they went on the pitch! Wonder which Wrexham will turn up today. We’re so erratic, and addressing that is Little’s main task. … Continue reading >View from the Grays Press Box
>Oh what a treat! A long trip on the train to Grays, which I know virtually nothing about (apparently it’s Russell Brand’s birthplace-I’ll add his name to the tags and see the hits roll in!) Apparently there’s a block of flats overlooking the ground and the locals come out onto their balconies to shout at the away fans! However, a reporter I interviewed for this … Continue reading >Away to Grays!
