Making Up For Past Mistakes

We’re entering the decisive point of our season already. If Dean Keates can refurbish his squad quickly enough, we can set our sights on climbing the table; if the process takes longer, we’ll have to dig in for a long scrap against relegation. I’ve no doubt Keates is the man to haul is out of this mess. His credentials for removing passengers and recruiting players … Continue reading Making Up For Past Mistakes

Continuity and Common Sense in Wrexham’s Retained List

Ultimately there were few surprises in Wrexham’s retained list, and that’s how it should be.

After all, we finished just five points off top, and a point short of being a home … Continue reading Continuity and Common Sense in Wrexham’s Retained List

Portrait Artist of the Year

Football is chess. Football is art. Football is the new black. And occasionally, just occasionally, football is art. I always enjoy looking at Alun Roberts’ photographs after Wrexham’s matches, but he excelled himself on Saturday with a picture taken after Luke Young’s goal which encapsulated so much about the match, and about the current squad. It’s more of a tableau than a photograph really. Like … Continue reading Portrait Artist of the Year

If we fail to score today it’ll be our worst … Continue reading Unwanted History Approaches
