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

I haven’t done a tactical report on a Wrexham game this season, but this seems like an appropriate point to start. While some fine individual performances clearly played a major role in how the Southport game panned out, the big decisions made on the bench were massively influential. Andy Morrell and his coaching staff have suffered unfounded allegations of tactical naiveté lately, but they made … Continue reading Wrexham 1 Southport 0
