Wrexham Can’t Afford a Repeat at Ebbsfleet

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

Wrexham’s fantastical compendium of festive fun failures

Wrexham’s merchandising is now a beautifully oiled machine. Why not take a look at the online shop or visit the real shops at the ground or Eagles Meadow. It hasn’t always been this good you know. See below a few of the products you probably never wanted, that thankfully got strangled at birth. Mickey Thomas Monopoly – (Mickey was so thrilled with this idea he agreed … Continue reading Wrexham’s fantastical compendium of festive fun failures

Wilkin is the Strong Silent Type Wrexham FC Need

So Kevin Wilkin it is then! I’d love to make out I had some inside knowledge, but I must say that the board played their cards impressively close to their chests throughout this process. My attempts to put two and two together and assume Micky Mellon was the man after he left Barnsley yesterday merely taught me that speculation is never a wise idea! Wilkin’s … Continue reading Wilkin is the Strong Silent Type Wrexham FC Need

Morrell Upgrades Saunders’ 4-3-3

The Hereford game was interesting on a tactical level. It showed an important progression over the course of Andy Morrell’s time as manager. The general shape of the game showed a tactical progression we’ve made under Morrell. While he’s maintained the 4-3-3 we established under Dean Saunders, an issue we used to have under his predecessor doesn’t tend to be as pronounced. Morrell was wise … Continue reading Morrell Upgrades Saunders’ 4-3-3

>Where’s Wolfy?

>Let’s be honest, it’s looking pretty bleak for Matty Wolfenden. Unable to progress from the role of late substitute, when Danny Mitchley was brought into the squad he dropped a place in the pecking order. When Mitchley was then dropped after one game it was clear that Dean Saunders hadn’t brought the Blackpool striker in to lead the attack, but to round out the squad. … Continue reading >Where’s Wolfy?
