Are We Working Hard Enough?

The start to this season has been really disappointing for all concerned at Wrexham Football Club, whether you are a supporter, staff, player, board member or manager there has been no hiding away from the fact that something isn’t right. Ultimately the buck stops with manager Andy Morrell but there has been an undercurrent after the past three or four games when the management or … Continue reading Are We Working Hard Enough?

Three Key Questions For Nuneaton

Here are three conundrums to chew over before the game. I’ll try to answer them tonight! Can we cope without Jay Harris? The evidence of the last two games suggests not. The first two matches of his three-match ban were the limpest performances we’ve seen Wrexham put in under Andy Morrell. When the manager suggested players were failing to engage with the challenge of fighting … Continue reading Three Key Questions For Nuneaton

Leader Column: Don’t Panic!

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. Don’t panic! It feel natural but it would be premature to do so. Let’s not kid ourselves: the last fortnight has been grim. The performance at Lincoln … Continue reading Leader Column: Don’t Panic!

Leader Preview: Hyde (h)

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. We’ve a hundred per cent record against Hyde, although our two wins at The Racecourse came a century and a quarter apart! In only our second season … Continue reading Leader Preview: Hyde (h)

The Beast Is Back!

It was the best possible news. Mark Creighton’s celebratory tweet, revealing that the scan he had on his knee revealed no problems was a huge boost for him…and Wrexham FC. There was a clear implication in Andy Morrell’s comments before the scan that the main problem was that Creighton’s “peace of mind” was troubled by the niggle in his knee. That’s perfectly understandable: he went … Continue reading The Beast Is Back!

Halifax Town 3 Wrexham 2

Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated? The worrying feeling I get after two games of our season isn’t anything to do with our defence, the danger injuries pose to our thin squad or the fact that we’ve already dropped three points. It’s the sense that the referees look even worse than they consistently have been since we dropped into the Conference. I feel guilty … Continue reading Halifax Town 3 Wrexham 2

Will Artell Be Our Fourth of a Kind?

So David Artell might be coming back to The Racecourse. That’s news I’d offer a qualified welcome to. Signing Artell is a good move per se. He illustrated last season that he’s a strong stopper and a genuine leader, not to mention the sort of bloke who looks to referee the match himself remaining constantly in the officials’ ears (bearing in mind the erratic, impressionable … Continue reading Will Artell Be Our Fourth of a Kind?

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

Kidderminster Harriers 1 Wrexham 3 (aggregate: 2-5)

150 years without a trip to Wembley, and then two come along at once.What a time it is to be a Wrexham fan. This was a victory for character as much as anything else: the character Dean Saunders looked to introduce to the club with the experienced players he brought in; the character Andy Morrell has instilled by continuing the process and creating a very … Continue reading Kidderminster Harriers 1 Wrexham 3 (aggregate: 2-5)
