Cannon Adds to Wrexham’s Class

Last week we took advantage of the dispensation granted to us in the Summer, allowing us to sign players outside the transfer window. And what a statement signing it was! Andy Cannon’s loan spell at Stockport last season was an important part of their success in the title battle, and The Hatters wanted to make the move permanent. Now he’s with us, and bringing a … Continue reading Cannon Adds to Wrexham’s Class

Was This Parky’s Best Win?

Was last Tuesday the best performance Wrexham have managed under Phil Parkinson? Quite possibly: this was a sumptuous display which laid bare exactly what the manager has been looking to achieve with this squad. I’m bemused by claims that Parkinson is too defensive, an accusation levelled at the manager by a disgruntled minority as recently as our last home game. We scored three goals in … Continue reading Was This Parky’s Best Win?

Can Ollie Palmer Be Our Creative Solution?

Phil Parkinson illustrated on Tuesday that a little lateral thinking can work wonders.  As everyone obsessed over our need for more creativity from midfield, the win over Grimsby suggested that Parkinson had come up with a solution by looking at the question from a different direction.   Rather than look for midfield invention, he’s simply shifted the onus to other parts of the pitch. Before going … Continue reading Can Ollie Palmer Be Our Creative Solution?

Vote Now For The Goal Of The Season

It’s the day of the final, and the two players we expected have got through to the final of the Steve Edwards Goal of the Season Trophy. Luke Young, the winner in each of the last two seasons, has made it with his opening day free kick against Boreham Wood. Against him is Jordan Davies, for his spectacular strike to wrap up his hat trick … Continue reading Vote Now For The Goal Of The Season

Who’s Your Wrexham AFC Player of the Year?

There have been seasons when the player of the season picks himself. Think of last season, when Luke Young was clearly head and shoulders above everyone else in a grim campaign.  This season is the exact opposite. It’s a reflection of the contrast with last season that there is a remarkably wide field of contenders for the trophy. In fact, of the 29 players we’ve … Continue reading Who’s Your Wrexham AFC Player of the Year?

Football According to Denis

The press room at The Racecourse used to be under the Yale Stand and, in Football League days, was a convivial spot where reporters would chat about the game they’d just witnessed and fact-check with their colleagues to make sure the player who crossed for the second goa had been correctly identified. It would always be filled with chatter until one of the managers arrived. … Continue reading Football According to Denis

#WxmAnorak | Chesterfield 3 Wrexham AFC 2

Last time Wrexham were leading as late as the 72nd minute but lost: 10/8/19 Dover (h) 1-2 4th time this season that Wrexham have conceded in 90th minute or injury time (three were the winning goal, the other was an equaliser). Wrexham have scored twice in the 90th minute or later – both consolation goals in a defeat. Jordan Ponticelli’s first goal since 14/4/18 (Crawley … Continue reading #WxmAnorak | Chesterfield 3 Wrexham AFC 2

PREVIEW | Chesterfield v Wrexham AFC

This is the fourth time we’ve faced Chesterfield this season, and surely the most important. We suffered one of our most disappointing defeats of the season at The Racecourse last October, when we dominated The Spireites for half an hour, only to collapse completely after an unnecessary own goal by Michael Chambers. We were offered a swift opportunity for revenge though, as four days later … Continue reading PREVIEW | Chesterfield v Wrexham AFC

Italian for Beginners

Isn’t Italian a lyrical language? Signing Jordan Ponticelli was an invitation to delve into linguistics which I couldn’t resist. It seemed pretty obvious that his name means little bridges, but that’s not all. Ponticelli is also the Italian word for jump leads! How brilliant, to come up with such an evocative word for a mundane object. They make little bridges between cars; why didn’t we … Continue reading Italian for Beginners
