Wrexham’s National League XI | Did We Pick The Right Side?

So this is the Wrexham side you voted for as our best eleven from the National League years.  I was planning to write about the side I picked and why it’s different from the one which the polls returned, but actually, I only disagree over one position, and even then I’m a little reluctant about it! The one difference I voted for was in attack. … Continue reading Wrexham’s National League XI | Did We Pick The Right Side?

From Famine To Feast

Alex Taylor asked on #askwxm about penalties before the Dagenham game, as at that point we hadn’t had one this season. which was a stroke of genius, because he made it inevitable that we’d be awarded a penalty in that match!   One for @m_griffiths92 #askwxm for Saturday’s game… what’s the longest we’ve gone without being awarded a penalty? We’re on for going the whole … Continue reading From Famine To Feast

PREVIEW Eastleigh v Wrexham AFC

Each of the four games we’ve played at Eastleigh has ended in a draw, although we’ve constantly come closer and closer to emerging with all three points, and never came as close as we did last season.

PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

Gary Mills’ loan signings tend to be like Donald Trump’s sense of humility: seldom seen, to the point where you begin to wonder if they ever existed in the first place. Gerry McDonagh might be the man to buck that trend. Certainly, his crucial intervention on Tuesday offered hope that he might be the man to spearhead our attack in the absence of the unfortunate … Continue reading PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

Conservative Accounting Is Costing Us Dear

At Christmas last year we were handily placed. A terrible Christmas period yes, but the playoffs were in reach. The squad needed freshening, rejuvenating or shooting, take your pick. What is indisputable is that Mills needed funds. Did we have the funds to give him? Well that is an interesting question. Mills did an amazing job in turning our form round.
