Do Go Chasing Waterfall

So we’ve signed a centre back, “the immovable water feature” as he’ll be known from now on. Obviously we all need to reserve judgement until he’s settled in, but my recollection of his performance against us for Gainsborough Trinity in the FA Trophy semi-final is positive and he’s certainly the right sort of signing for our current situation. Ever since the season started I’d felt … Continue reading Do Go Chasing Waterfall

The Balance Sheet: Stoke City v Wrexham FC

  Positives: Carrington’s goal: how good did that feel? It was the sort of moment you become a football fan for. A superb performance: disciplined in defence with a threat on the break. The spells when we took the game to Stoke and showed we weren’t there to park the bus. The solidity of the back four when under pressure. Connor Jennings’ energy in the … Continue reading The Balance Sheet: Stoke City v Wrexham FC

Could Key Injuries Help Wrexham FC at Stoke City?

It’s counter-intuitive to think it, but is it possible that losing our twenty-goal strike combination might actually help us today? My heart says I’m being stupid. Andy Bishop and Louis Moult account for 43% of our goals this season, so losing them would surely compromise our chances of puling off something remarkable this afternoon. But my brain tells me that we can’t go into this … Continue reading Could Key Injuries Help Wrexham FC at Stoke City?

I can see clearly now that Blaine has gone

My clarity of thought has nothing to do with Hudson’s suspension ,but my flash of recognition coincided with it. I’ve realised what our best team is, and I understand what formation they should play. My conclusions have left me looking in the mirror, eating humble pie, and swallowing some pride.  Now I’m going to vomit the result right down the page. Firstly we need to … Continue reading I can see clearly now that Blaine has gone

One conclusion only (so far)

The start of the season has been mixed. Let’s be honest, we expect to be challenging for the title and some of the teams in our league have dramatically less resources than ourselves. Looking at our league position a detached observer might say we’ve made a steady start. No we haven’t, we’ve made an unsteady start to our attempt to challenge for the title. It’s … Continue reading One conclusion only (so far)
