It’s counter-intuitive to think it, but is it possible that losing our twenty-goal strike combination might actually help us today? My heart says I’m being stupid. Andy Bishop and Louis Moult account for 43% of our goals this season, so losing them would surely compromise our chances of puling off something remarkable this afternoon. But my brain tells me that we can’t go into this … Continue reading Could Key Injuries Help Wrexham FC at Stoke City?
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. I’ve never been a great believer in mind games, but last Tuesday made me think again. I always felt the idea that a team’s performance is influenced … Continue reading Morrell: Master of Mind Games
It was a moment which could prove crucial for our title chances, and to be honest I didn’t think too much of it at the time. As Jay Harris played a long ball into the box the linesman’s flag went up immediately, and as I’d been watching Martin Riley try to wrestle his way goalside of Lathaniel Rowe-Turner I assumed the call was correct when … Continue reading Wrexham 0 Luton Town 0

He was talking about his … Continue reading Fergie Says Patience is a Virtue for Wrexham
Fleetwood Town, a team that did not even have full time players until the end of the 2009-10 season, now an obsession to all us Wrexham fans. We constantly find ourselves checking the Fleetwood score and find ourselves bitterly disappointed time after time as they somehow play longer than any other team! Eight times this season Fleetwood have scored in injury time. An incredible record … Continue reading Our ever-growing obsession with the Cod Army!
I’m getting a bit long in the tooth to feel like this! I got up at 615 this morning to begin the journey to Sussex, and felt the same pang of nerves I’ve felt for the past few days. They’ve been building up for a while; as our winning run extended, I was gripped by a desperate desire that it should remain intact until today. … Continue reading Those Pre-Old Trafford Nerves
>Let’s be honest; international football and what Wrexham get up to are virtually different sports. However, there are still parallels between us and the World Cup which England in particular can learn from. Specifically, Wayne Rooney’s ability to turn things round seems linked to whether he’s got a bit of Gary Bennett in him. There’s certainly plenty of anger in Rooney right now, but that’s … Continue reading Rooney’s No Gary Bennett
