Only two players named Wes have appeared for Wrexham in our one hundred and fifty year history – Baynes and York – and … Continue reading What’s in a name?

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. The field of contenders for the Racecourse hot seat has been narrowed down to a shortlist of fifteen.

I was planning to write about how we’ve stuck to 4-3-3 despite the howls of protest from some quarters because we don’t have the players to play 4-4-2. After last Saturday’s game I had to abort that idea! Thanks Mister Barr! The thing which threw me was the deployment of Mark Carrington on the right of midfield. An obvious ploy, with hindsight: after all, he’s … Continue reading Is Billy Our Man?

All content in the column (c) www.leaderlive.co.uk. My dad’s always worried when the opposition are bigger than us. This season, I reckon he’s got a point. But the facts don’t really seem to bear me out, … Continue reading Leader Column: It’s The Height Difference That Gets You In The End
At a loose end after the Dartford games was called off, I’ve filled my time by making a Pinterest board of all the past Wrexham Players of the Season and Young Players of the Season. Enjoy! Continue reading Players of Seasons Past
So we’ve lost our top scorer. Bad news on the face of it, yet I’m not feel too cut up about it. But then Jake Speight was always something of a paradox. Just look at those goals, for example. He hit twenty-one last season, which anyone would agree was a formidable total. Yet scratch the surface of the stat and things look slightly less impressive: … Continue reading Speight Offers Morrell A Chance To Show Who’s Boss
Well as I sit writing this weekly view from the commentary box Wrexham fans are doing everything they can to raise sufficient funds to pay the players, who perhaps understandably, are reluctant to play pre season friendlies in case they get injured and are unable to find a new club should the worst happen. What a shame that a promising pre season has been interrupted … Continue reading Please Give Generously!
> Dodged a bullet there, I think! What a surprise-he said some populist comments but didn’t follow through! It’s not as if you couldn’t see this coming: if you think I’m being harsh, I refer you to this and this! Even the incentive of hooking up with Rebecca Lowe’s gone now! Let’s hope the media finally decide to drop these stupid “Savage to Wrexham” stories … Continue reading >Savage Fate
> So now we’re signing a player who last season was looking good in The Premiership, eh? Forgive me if I contain my excitement. Don’t get me wrong: I’d love it to be true. It’s just that I don’t see a single shred of evidence that it is. There are two basic truths about these types of stories: 1. Usually they’re not true. 2. When … Continue reading >Tugay or Not Tugay?
>Robbie Savage isn’t all that keen on playing in The Conference after all, it seems! I said in an earlier blog that Savage tends to speak whatever happens to be in his mind without a great deal of consideration for what he’s previously pronounced, so I shouldn’t be too surprised to see him announcing his horror at the notion of playing in The Conference, just … Continue reading >Remember Us Robbie?
> http://icwales.icnetwork.co.uk/footballnation/wrexham-fc/2008/03/23/sav-that-dragons-dream-is-over-91466-20661564/ I’m no fan of Robbie Savage-quite apart from his behaviour on the pitch, I feel he let Wales down badly. However, I don’t think we should rush to harsh judgement over his latest pronouncement. Looking for consistency from Savage, like Derby’s season, is basically pointless. However, this story has a bit more gravity to it. It’s interesting how many away press boxes I … Continue reading >The Savage Truth!
