Statistical Comparison: Keates v Mills

Apologies for harping on about it: I swear there’ll come a point where I’ll stop banging on about how Gary Mills was bad and Dean Keates is working a miracle. But I haven’t got to that point yet. Sorry. Here, on the day Mills’ two previous sides clash, is another riff on the theme. Having said that, at least I’m going to base my arguments … Continue reading Statistical Comparison: Keates v Mills

Testing The Wrexham AFC Old Wives Tales

Ever since I’ve been a kid there have been certain clichés which people trot out about Wrexham. One of my personal favourites is that they don’t want to get promoted, a gripe against a perceived lack of ambition which has always been a load of nonsense (apart, perhaps, for a certain period in our history when it’s quite conceivable that there were people in the … Continue reading Testing The Wrexham AFC Old Wives Tales

Wrexham FC’s 2014 in Numbers

Nobody can claim that 2014 has been a vintage year on the pitch. Looking through the figures from the last twelve months perhaps reflects this: without consistent performances the statistics lead us toward some rather surprising conclusions. But first the facts: we played 54 games in 2014 and won 38% of them, losing 33%. Appropriately in a mediocre year, that’s pretty much mid-table form: in … Continue reading Wrexham FC’s 2014 in Numbers

Spreading The Wealth

>Last season we couldn’t score for the life of us. Now we’re hitting the net regularly enough: the Altrincham game was only the second away game this season in which we didn’t score. The problem is that, while we’re getting goals from midfield now-something which simply wasn’t happening last season-we don’t have a striker leading the way and getting into double figures. That fact is … Continue reading Spreading The Wealth
