Wrexham Can’t Afford a Repeat at Ebbsfleet

We suffered a dispiriting beating at Ebbsfleet last season. When we went there, our promotion push was unravelling spectacularly after the departure of Dean Keates, while the home side were putting together an excellent run of form as they tried to make a late run into the play-offs. We held out until half time, but once we went behind thinks deteriorated swiftly, and we ended … Continue reading Wrexham Can’t Afford a Repeat at Ebbsfleet

Edgar Davids, Alan Partridge and Me

It’s a shame to see that Edgar Davids won’t be coming to The Racecourse with Barnet (although we know that even if he was still their manager that would be no guarantee of him actually being at a game this far north!) Obviously, it’s a shame because it would be interesting to see an international legend in his twilight years. It’s also a shame because … Continue reading Edgar Davids, Alan Partridge and Me

>Louis Sheds Light on Saunders’ Plans?

> In April’s edition of Fourfourtwo Jeff Louis makes an interesting comment on Dean Saunders’ ability to attract players to The Racecourse: “Any young Welshman-like Cardiff’s (sic) Joe Allen-sees an opportunity to impress a future national team manager.” With BBC Wales eagerly putting the idea around that Saunders is being groomed as John Toshack’s successor, and pursuing the line that Saunders might well jump ship … Continue reading >Louis Sheds Light on Saunders’ Plans?

>Driving back from Stevenage my Dad and I began to muse over the odd nature of the last couple of years, and the consequences for this season. There have to be repercussions from the massive turnover we’ve experienced this time around, with the side currently undergoing its third major reshuffle in the course of a calendar year (hold tight for another in January!) To illustrate … Continue reading >Player of the Season So Far!

>View from the Grays Press Box

>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
