What a strange mixture of emotions I’m feeling leading up to the cup replay on Tuesday. On the one hand, there’s no side I’d begrudge victory to less than Brighton, on the other a victory over our twinned club would lead to a windfall which might make a huge difference to Wrexham’s future. It’s a friendly played for remarkably high stakes. In many ways it’s … Continue reading Do Us A Favour!
It’s a long time since I’ve so excited about a game as far in advance as this! In fact, to be honest, I’ve felt excited about the Brighton match from the moment the game came out of the bag! (If I’d been this guy, maybe I’d have even been excited before the draw was made!) Of course, part of my excitement is because I’m … Continue reading The Only Way is Sussex
>Am I alone in feeling edgy about today’s game? Kettering’s home form over the last ten months is dismal: played 19 won 2 drawn 6 lost 11. Let’s be honest; recent experience makes it virtually inevitable that they beat us! Also, after what by all accounts was a frank squad meeting, provoked by their awful start to the season, they might just be ready to … Continue reading That Familiar Feeling
> Did you see that? I must admit that, in commentary, I found myself falling back onto a sense of incredulity that the Wrexham side which has looked so uncreative could suddenly burst into life so fruitfully. Never mind the fact that we were denied at the close; if we keep playing like that, we’ll win plenty of games this season. That’s the point though; … Continue reading >Battering Kettering
> I am so disappointed! I can’t get to the Stevenage game, or the Wimbledon match, and Kettering’s a push as I can’t get that far after work! What a nightmare! Bizarre as it might sound, missing out on a Wrexham match is still a punishment rather than a reward! It just feels so wrong to be sitting around when I should be on the … Continue reading >Gutted!
>I know it’s a bit early in the season to start looking for patterns, but one habit Wrexham seem to be fallling into needs to be broken sharpish. It’s not an easy thing to quantify or explain, but the facts are clear; so far this season very little seems to be happening in the first half of our matches, and that has to stop. We’ve … Continue reading >Fast start please

> So will Gunnar Neilsen’s unfortunate injury open the door for Chris Maxwell? He was lined up for a shot in the team before Neilsen arrived, only to be folied by a training ground injury, and Connah’s Quay will testify to his ability, as they’ve found things tough since he returned to The Racecourse at the end of his loan. I’d assumed for a while … Continue reading >Can Maxwell Survive the Goalkeeper’s Graveyard?
