Wrexham 2 Hereford United 0

Well, that was impressive! Billy Barr will no doubt be a little frustrated that this performance came after the decision seems to have been made about the identity of the next manager as this would have complemented his application nicely. Admittedly Hereford are the team one would want to be playing right now (although between our two matches they’ve drawn all three games, including away … Continue reading Wrexham 2 Hereford United 0

4-4-2 Isn’t Working For Wrexham FC

I planned to write this about three weeks ago but lost my nerve. To be fair, my moment of weakness was based on hard evidence: I saw something which made me genuinely think I was wrong. Having gathered further proof, though, I’ve come to the conclusion that I was right all along. 4-4-2 doesn’t work for the current Wrexham squad and the 4-3-3 Andy Morrell … Continue reading 4-4-2 Isn’t Working For Wrexham FC

Forget Wembley: Grimsby will test a Different Wrexham

Wrexham’s new 4-4-2, impressive at Hereford, moribund against Kidderminster, disastrous at Braintree, will have a thorough examination this afternoon. It’ll be interesting to see if it emerges intact. I’ve seen a couple of Grimsby’s recent matches and their shape will test our formation thoroughly. Johnny Hunt and Mark Carrington will be absolutely crucial to our approach, both when we have the ball and when we … Continue reading Forget Wembley: Grimsby will test a Different Wrexham

Things Are Looking Up For The Reds

January, a new start for Wrexham as they aimed to change their poor season which began a whole six months ago. A disappointing mid-table position with some saying relegation was a possibility which, though I couldn’t see it myself, looked like a plausible opinion. But surely not? Surely the Wrexham that won the FA Trophy and were in the Play-Off final no longer than 10 … Continue reading Things Are Looking Up For The Reds

Without knowing all the behind-the-scenes detail it’s really difficult to know where to stand on this. I have to admit to being particularly torn as I’m pulled between two … Continue reading We Urgently Need To Find A Solution To The Cieslewicz Conundrum

A tale of screamers, elation, despair…. and Aggborough Pies!

Better late than never I suppose! My review of the 2012/13 season comes a bit later than Mark Griffiths’ but I personally blame A-levels! A tremendous season in terms of emotion and action for Wrexham, but also the most heartbreaking since that game at Hereford back in 2008 where Wrexham condemned to the league they very nearly escaped at the third attempt at Wembley. I’ll … Continue reading A tale of screamers, elation, despair…. and Aggborough Pies!
