Wrexham AFC Mustn’t Panic, Just Play To Their Strengths

I was feeling more positive about this season than I’d expected to until Monday. That certainly gave me cause to reassess things The performance at Hartlepool was poor.

Shankly Knows Best For Maguire-Drew

Last Saturday was the first time this season that Jordan Maguire-Drew wasn’t in the matchday squad. There might be nothing more to see here than a continuation of our regular rotation of forward players. However, it’s tempting to view the decision, at least to some degree, as an attempt to try something different in order to get Maguire-Drew back to the exciting form he showed … Continue reading Shankly Knows Best For Maguire-Drew
