Morrell’s critics failed to convince me

This is the extended twelve inch remix of my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. So I guess it’s time to get on with the rest of our lives. I can’t do it without regret … Continue reading Morrell’s critics failed to convince me

Nothing can go wrong now!

Here’s more Congy Red goodness! I’m writing this before we beat Barnet. That’s right BEFORE we beat Barnet. I have carefully analysed our current situation and ‘Nothing can go wrong now’. Fans of the DJ Danny Baker may recognise the phrase. He asked football fans to ring in and give him stories about their teams when they were cruising to victory, and were hit by … Continue reading Nothing can go wrong now!

Welling United 1 Wrexham 1

Ŵell that was better, but it still encapsulated how we’re just falling short this season. The positives first. After the defeat at Luton we needed to respond, and we did. To be honest, it was pretty much impossible to not improve on what we did last Saturday, but still, we showed character on a stinking day in an exposed ground and ought to have won … Continue reading Welling United 1 Wrexham 1

End of Term Report Part Four

The defence stood up to scrutiny last season, but how did the engine room fare? Midfielders Dean Keates Once again, the skipper ran through the pain barrier for the club and he remains a totemic figure in the centre of the pitch. At the heart of everything, he sets the passing tempo and leads from the front, playing with a fire which complements Jay Harris’ … Continue reading End of Term Report Part Four

Morrell’s Balancing Act Between Quality and Strength in Depth

Ever since we dropped into the Conference this part of the year has seemed particularly fraught and crucial. Talk of a retained list seems irrelevant: the issue isn’t who we want to keep, but who we can manage to hang onto. Danny Wright has departed already, and the likes of Martin Riley and Dean Keates are surely crucial to the spine of next season’s side. … Continue reading Morrell’s Balancing Act Between Quality and Strength in Depth

Youth Offers Some Hope

Here’s my column from last week’s Leader. It forms part of the paper’s comprehensive pre-match coverage every Friday, featuring interviews, an in-depth look at the opposition and lots of statistical analysis. All content in the column (c) http://www.leaderlive.co.uk. It’s strange how things pan out, isn’t it? A fortnight ago the likes of Rob Evans and Bradley Reid had barely any pitch time between them, naturally … Continue reading Youth Offers Some Hope

Wrexham 1 Kidderminster Harriers 2

Hmmm, not sure how to feel after that. On the one hand, defeat is fairly inconsequential. I’m not convinced that who you play in the play-offs matters enormously, nor whether you get any advantage from playing the home leg second, unless it goes into extra time. I’d rather establish a first leg advantage, no matter how narrow, than chase a deficit in the second game: … Continue reading Wrexham 1 Kidderminster Harriers 2
