Feeling down after last weekend? Worried that history’s repeating itself? Fear not! You’ll feel better when you learn to embrace the flaky nature of all the other promotion contenders. Welcome to the League of Bottlers! Last Tuesday’s results illustrated just how incapable any of the sides at the top of the table are of striking out and winning this darned league. Someone will do it, … Continue reading Hope Springs Eternal In The League of Bottlers!
Well, the records just keep tumbling, don’t they? Graham Barrow has gone, a mere 64 days after his first game as manager of Wrexham. Twenty days longer than Brian Clough lasted at Leeds, I suppose. It’s the shortest length of time anyone has lasted in the Racecourse hot seat though, and although we remain within spitting distance of the top spot, you have to ask … Continue reading Déjà Vu All Over Again For Wrexham And Graham Barrow
I think a bit of perspective is in order. Obviously losing four in a row is a bad thing. However, we’ve not hit crisis point yet.

For me, Tollitt looks like a potential solution to our lack of a cutting edge. Fast, direct, able to take men on and willing to shoot from the edge of the area, he feels like the player most likely … Continue reading More Tollitt, Please!
We’re still getting to know our new manager, but we learned something interesting about him this week: he likes to get his transfer business done early. There are certainly no flies on Graham Barrow when it comes to sorting out his signings. Within a week of the transfer window opening he’d drafted in two new strikers, converted a loan into a permanent deal and made … Continue reading How Scoring Five Can Show You Need More Cutting Edge
At half time in the Salford game, we discussed with the Calon FM listeners who Wrexham’s player of 2018 was. There were lots of good candidates, but one clear winner. Shaun Pearson continues to set the example which others follow. Pearson made his 75th appearance for Wrexham in that match, and of course it wasn’t how he’d want to celebrate that milestone. However there were … Continue reading Shaun Pearson and Wrexham AFC: The Perfect Match
