Last season our top scorers managed the lowest total in Wrexham AFC’s history, sharing 6 goals each. Here’s a look at all our top scorers in the National League. Continue reading Wrexham’s Top Scorers in the National League
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
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. We travel to title-chasing Forest Green tomorrow hopeful that we can maintain our new-found habit of beating the strongest sides in the league! The victory over Cheltenham … Continue reading PREVIEW: Forest Green Rovers v Wrexham AFC
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. We’ve faced Gateshead sixty times over the years but our experience against them in cup competitions is limited. We could do worse than repeat the last of … Continue reading PREVIEW: Wrexham FC v Gateshead FC
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
Another week closer to the big kick off on August 8th and this time next week we will know the fixtures for the BSP in 2009/10 and the real countdown can begin. It looks likely that the BSP will not get the same level of TV exposure it received in 2008/09 with the sad collapse of Setanta. Whatever your thoughts on Thursday night fixtures away … Continue reading >Six Weeks to go and counting
> Drewe Broughton is eager to see his two old sides, Wrexham and Chester, return swiftly to The Football League, and I half agree with him!! Of course Broughton’s record of playing in teams that get relegated is well known. yet he manages to do exactly what we aspire to: he consistently remains in the Football League. I was about to suggest he splits Wrexham … Continue reading >Drewe Love!
> Has a Wrexham player ever divided opinion like Jeff Louis? On the one hand his lack of energy exasperated fans and pundit alike-in the press box the ex-players who work in the media universally criticise him. Likewise his attitude, as the bald facts of his itinerant career suggest, has been open to question to say the least. On the other, he was our top … Continue reading >Jeffo Had To Go For Deffo!
> 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?
> Having watched us look rather thin on options up front yesterday, I didn’t need to see Neil Roberts’ performance for Rhyl on Sgorio when I got in! He scored two early goals and was ludicrously unfortunate not to get a first half hat trick whe a shot from the edge of the box hit the left post, span across the face of goal and … Continue reading >I Can’t Help Looking Back!
>Dean Saunders could be forgiven for thinking this management lark’s not as tough as people ,make it out to be, given the tremendous start he’s enjoyed at the helm at Wrexham. However, he’s now confronted with a nice little conundrum to get his teeth into. What do you do if you have a problem taking chances, yet your team’s one of the top scorers in … Continue reading >Dean’s Striker Dilemma
>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!
>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
