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. Simon Heslop was an … Continue reading Conservative Accounting Is Costing Us Dear

PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

Gary Mills will be keen to maintain our good run of form tomorrow against Aldershot, an opponent we’ve tended to have the upper hand against in recent clashes. Since we reacquainted ourselves with The Shots in The Conference following their demise and return to the Football League we’ve had by far the better of things. Admittedly, things started badly as a trip to Aldershot in … Continue reading PREVIEW: Aldershot Town v Wrexham AFC

That Whole James Gray – Zinedine Zidane Thing

It looks like James Gray has unwittingly sparked one of the more unexpected debates at the start of this season. I can’t say it occurred to me to question his role in the current side until it was publicly doubted, and to be honest I can’t see why a perceived lack of goals is an issue. After all, he has a strike rate of a … Continue reading That Whole James Gray – Zinedine Zidane Thing
