If you’re a Wrexham fan you’ll have been brought up to believe a lot of “truths” about the club: we always lose on TV, and on artificial pitches; in the Good Old Days we always got five-figure crowds for home games; we don’t really want to go up (that’s a bizarrely persistent one!); and we always do badly against sides at the bottom of the … Continue reading Do Wrexham’s old players always score past us?
Harrogate’s artificial turf hasn’t offered them any particular advantage against us. We’ve visited them twice, both last season, and played out a goalless draw on each occasion. Harrogate’s game at The Racecourse last October – the first game of Dean Keates’ second spell as manager, saw them snatch a draw thanks to an 81st minute equalizer. We lost our first match against Harrogate when Keates … Continue reading PREVIEW | Harrogate Town v Wrexham AFC

I’d been unable to resist the temptation to couch the whole broadcast in the context of a rebellion against … Continue reading Nobody Puts Leo in the Corner
One thousand and eighty nine Wrexham fans almost saw history made on Saturday. One thousand and eighty nine people held their breath as Kayden Jackson’s shot bobbled towards the goal. A microsecond when our bobbling season, looked to be taking a massive bounce forward. There are ten thousand plus people in Wrexham who want to see the Reds make history and most are missing out. … Continue reading You Are Missing Out
“An experiment is a failure only when it also fails adequately to test the hypothesis in question, when the data it produces don’t prove anything one way or another.” ― Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry Into Values Gary Mills has been experimenting, he’s been forced to. His actions have been logical, measured and not lead by the jerking … Continue reading Mills Makes Sense
