Wrexham finallly came unstuck in their eighth game of the season, and there’s no doubt that their Fowler-centric approach was less effective than it has been in any other game this season, but while the reasons for that are worth analysing, don’t let that, the absence of Mark Creighton or criticism of the referee, blind you from the one basic factor which shaped this game: … Continue reading Tactical Report: 10th September 2011 Barrow 3 Wrexham 1 Blue Square Bet Premier
> So Phil Bolland’s available. Well, would you? Continue reading >Phil Bolland Released
>Phil Bolland’s return to The Racecourse was anticipated by many of us with a great deal of curiosity, but like many things you look forward to, it didn’t turn out as one might have expected. Bolland was a steady presence in Brian Little’s doomed side last season; indeed, he was one of the few players Little signed who could be judged a success. Thus Little’s … Continue reading >Never Mind The Bollands

I have a vague recollection of him playing in midfield for Bradford, but can’t remember too much detail on him-a Halifax fansite says when he was at alley Parade he was thought of as the next Stuart McCall!

I’m still left with a basic concenr about whether Brian Little’s decision-making is what it should be. Don’t get me wrong; I don’t think Michael Proctor is God’s gift to football. However, he was the only player last season who … Continue reading >The Cull Begins
> It was a perfect case of schadenfreude on Sunday. Chester could have scored a few but were repelled by a goalkeeper they released at the start of the year. Ward showed City what they threw away with his virtuoso display, which included one save right out of the top drawer. Oh, did I forget to mention that the save in question was made from … Continue reading >You Can’t Help Gloating!
> Pejic for Bolland’s an interesting call. I guess he’s in to cope with the pace of Marecambe;s strikers, but I hope he’s sharp after being out for a while. Does this show that Dad’s Army are a temporary measure to get us out of trouble while the future might lie in Little rejuvenating some of our demoralised lot from before the window opened?
