5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC – Stockport County

How will we respond to Hartlepool? The performance at Victoria Park wasn’t good. However, neither was bad enough to trigger the sort of online backlash which followed it. Teams lose games; teams that make six changes from their strongest eleven usually lose games. Outcomes like that need to spark a reaction though, and Bryan Hughes is confident his players will deliver in the hot atmosphere … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Wrexham AFC – Stockport County

5 Questions Before Notts County – Wrexham AFC

Will We Miss Jake Lawlor? Jake Lawlor’s suspension means Shaun Pearson will have a new partner. I’d assume it’ll be Michael Chambers, and that his absence on the bench on Tuesday had no further significance than he lost out to a more versatile option in Adam Barton.

The coaching staff know what they want to see from their team, but the rest of us don’t. We’re not privy to the training sessions, we don’t know what instructions were … Continue reading New Season, No Certainties

5 Questions Before the Wrexham AFC – Barrow AFC Match

Will 3 at the back work? We might not see it today, but the three-man defence we’ve unveiled in our pre-season friendlies is a departure for Bryan Hughes. Clearly it’s intended to address our lack of attacking verve in recent seasons, allowing us to get more men forwards, and he’s recruited players to suit that system.
