If Bryan Hughes is successful in getting the players he wants to sign new contracts for next season, we’ll have a remarkable array of talent at centre back to choose from. Shaun Pearson, Manny Smith, Jake Lawlor and Kieran Kennedy would all be available for selection, but despite the fact that he’d have to get past such stiff opposition to earn a spot in the … Continue reading Keep Tharme And Carry On
Feeling down after last weekend? Worried that history’s repeating itself? Fear not! You’ll feel better when you learn to embrace the flaky nature of all the other promotion contenders. Welcome to the League of Bottlers! Last Tuesday’s results illustrated just how incapable any of the sides at the top of the table are of striking out and winning this darned league. Someone will do it, … Continue reading Hope Springs Eternal In The League of Bottlers!
If we ever needed a strong mentality, it’s today. Last Tuesday’s defeat was a spectacular blow. It wasn’t just that we lost: it was the devastating manner in which we collapsed. Amazingly, as we kicked off we hadn’t let in a goal at home in the first half of a match all season. Indeed, we hadn’t conceded a home goal in open play before the … Continue reading Time To Roll Our Sleeves Up
Wrexham’s first defeat in 7 games. Bryan Hughes’ first defeat as Wrexham manager – the fourth longest unbeaten start by a Wrexham manager. Biggest away crowd for a Wrexham game this season (6,643). Previously at Chesterfield (5,662). First time in 7 games that Wrexham have failed to score. 11th time in 22 away games that Wrexham have failed to score this season. Wrexham haven’t beaten … Continue reading #WxmAnorak Leyton Orient v Wrexham AFC
Today’s huge match will revolve around so many duels: Bonne against Wrexham’s stubborn defence; Tollitt trying to get behind Ling and pull Ekpiteta out of the middle; Wright trying to force McAnuff into deeper areas than he wants to be. However, perhaps the key clash will be between two players signed on loan by Sam Ricketts; one whose form makes him barely recognisable to Wrexham … Continue reading Walker Versus Maguire-Drew the Key to Leyton Orient v Wrexham AFC
We travel to London hoping our newfound goal threat will end a barren run against Leyton Orient. We haven’t scored past them in three matches, our longest goalless run in this fixture. We also haven’t beaten them in six matches, which represents our worst sequence of winless games against The Os. However, our last victory over them was a memorable one: in April 2003, Andy … Continue reading Wrexham AFC Need A Reversal of Fortune V Leyton Orient
I think a bit of perspective is in order. Obviously losing four in a row is a bad thing. However, we’ve not hit crisis point yet. In mid-January we’re four points off the top of the table, and one point off a position which would guarantee us a one-off home match in the semi-finals of the play-offs. Would you have taken that situation at the … Continue reading Don’t Panic!
Ben Tollitt’s announcement that he’d like to extend his stay at Wrexham was music to my ears. I hope we are able to make it happen. For me, Tollitt looks like a potential solution to our lack of a cutting edge. Fast, direct, able to take men on and willing to shoot from the edge of the area, he feels like the player most likely … Continue reading More Tollitt, Please!
