Wrexham 2 Gresley 1

I’ve been watching Wrexham for decades and I’ve seen this scenario played out many times. It’s usually been Wrexham on the other end of it though. Perennial underdogs, legendary giant-killers, our achievements are known throughout the game. But apart from the shocks there were also the near misses. The times when we tilted at a bigger side and emerged proud but defeated. This time we … Continue reading Wrexham 2 Gresley 1

Are We Working Hard Enough?

The start to this season has been really disappointing for all concerned at Wrexham Football Club, whether you are a supporter, staff, player, board member or manager there has been no hiding away from the fact that something isn’t right. Ultimately the buck stops with manager Andy Morrell but there has been an undercurrent after the past three or four games when the management or … Continue reading Are We Working Hard Enough?

Three Key Questions For Nuneaton

Here are three conundrums to chew over before the game. I’ll try to answer them tonight! Can we cope without Jay Harris? The evidence of the last two games suggests not. The first two matches of his three-match ban were the limpest performances we’ve seen Wrexham put in under Andy Morrell. When the manager suggested players were failing to engage with the challenge of fighting … Continue reading Three Key Questions For Nuneaton

We Urgently Need To Find A Solution To The Cieslewicz Conundrum

Having spoken out to The Leader about his frustration at being omitted from the sixteen for our last two games, it appears the complex relationship between Adrian Cieslewicz and Wrexham might have reached a crucial point. 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

Colbeck’s Injury Hurts

The news that we finished yesterday’s training session with a lengthy list of injuries isn’t exactly what we wanted to hear with the kick-off looming. With Dean Keates still struggling to recover from last season’s exertions and Brett Ormerod injuring his hand, Andy Morrell’s squad, already a little threadbare in places, looks worryingly thin with the opening day of the season just three days away. … Continue reading Colbeck’s Injury Hurts

End of Term Report Part Four

The defence stood up to scrutiny last season, but how did the engine room fare? Midfielders Dean Keates Once again, the skipper ran through the pain barrier for the club and he remains a totemic figure in the centre of the pitch. At the heart of everything, he sets the passing tempo and leads from the front, playing with a fire which complements Jay Harris’ … Continue reading End of Term Report Part Four
