You Know What Jason Oswell Needs? The Welsh Premier Cup

Here’s a radical thought: could a striker, brought in expressly to address a lack of goals in a team, be considered a success despite failing to find the net in his first 315 minutes on the pitch for his new club? I’d argue that after a slow start, Jason Oswell is starting to look like he has something useful to contribute, despite his lack of … Continue reading You Know What Jason Oswell Needs?

Do Wrexham Struggle Against Promotion Rivals?

Struggling for form, we face a tough task today, If we lose, it’ll be our longest losing run since January 2016; a failure to score would see us fail to hit the net in five consecutive games for the first time since April 2009. Furthermore, AFC Fylde have the squad quality and financial backing to be serious promotion contenders, and our record against such sides … Continue reading Do Wrexham Struggle Against Promotion Rivals?

No More Madness at Maidstone Please!

Let’s hope there’s no repeat today of our last trip to Maidstone, when the referee took centre stage. Sam Allison’s erratic performance had a massive influence on a day when almost everything went wrong for Wrexham. Our problems began before the match when Chris Dunn injured himself in the pre-match warm-up, so Christian Dibble was dramatically thrust into his Wrexham debut. Despite the disruption, we … Continue reading No More Madness at Maidstone Please!

The Honourable Notion?

I’ve been watching “The Honourable Woman” lately, and it fits squarely into the BBC’s portfolio of critically-praised drama which is over-written and therefore a bit hard to follow. It’s a bit like Wrexham’s academy deal with Glyndwr: it seems good, but is quite difficult to understand. The positives underwrite the whole project: as I understand it, it isn’t costing us anything and all the players … Continue reading The Honourable Notion?
