Preview | Wrexham AFC v Bromley

Dean Keates has positive memories of welcoming Bromley to The Racecourse. His first win as manager came at their expense in October 2016 as Shaun Harrad and Gerry McDonagh scored the goals in a 2-1 win. Keates would clear his squad out swiftly though, as only two of the players used in that match would still be at the club by the start of next … Continue reading Preview | Wrexham AFC v Bromley

Was Scott Boden Discarded Too Soon by Wrexham AFC?

Did we get rid of Scott Boden too soon? I know this is a provocative question. Perhaps even a stupid question. After all, Boden is a striker who managed a grand total of three goals for us last season in a side which failed to add attacking potency to an extraordinary defence. Common sense demanded that we dismantled the attacking portion of the side last … Continue reading Was Scott Boden Discarded Too Soon by Wrexham AFC?

PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Bromley

If we win today we’ll have won four consecutive matches for the first time since August 2015, and we have a perfect home record against Bromley, although we’ll also lack our secret weapon against them, as we can no longer call upon the services of Ntumba Massanka! Massanka’s scoring record against Bromley is remarkable, with four goals in two substitute appearances. That record is made … Continue reading PREVIEW Wrexham AFC v Bromley

His appointment … Continue reading Andy Davies Was Wrexham AFCs Smart Option

Nobody Puts Leo in the Corner

My co-commentator James Harrison has a habit of hitting the nail on the head, and last Monday he made a succinct point which, in the space of one sentence, summed up the beauty of that win over York better than ninety minutes of my ranting had. 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

Who’s Your Player of the Season?

Voting opened this week for the Player of the Season and the Young Player, and I can’t recall a more unpredictable year for either trophy. It’s a natural consequence of a season which has lacked stability that no obvious candidates have emerged. Furthermore, when a campaign has split itself into such diverse segments, it’s difficult to work out who to reward.    The players Dean … Continue reading Who’s Your Player of the Season?

Rooney Meets His Youthful Nemesis

I was left conflicted after Saturday’s game with North Ferriby. It was good that we dominated the game, but bad that we failed to score more than once against a side which looked weaker than any other we’ve faced this season. The cause of my internal conflict was a goalkeeper who looked like he’s seven years old but played with the swagger of a Schmeichel. … Continue reading Rooney Meets His Youthful Nemesis
