Massive March

Facing Sutton on their patch feels like the beginning of the sharp end of the season. We’ve got ourselves fairly securely into the play-off spots, but Sutton are really well-placed: in terms of points per game, they’re the top team in the division. Games in March are usually highly significant, but this season everything’s different. There’s a lot of football still to be fitted in, … Continue reading Massive March

5 Questions Before Sutton United v Wrexham AFC

Can we win the flanks? Naturally, our switch to three at the back has placed extra responsibility on our wing backs to provide attacking width. Today they will come up against a 4-4-2 which could cause them problems, though. The threat of Sutton’s full backs overlapping to create overloads with their wide midfielders is something Mark Carrington and James Jennings will have to overcome if … Continue reading 5 Questions Before Sutton United v Wrexham AFC

The League is Upside-Down (At Least When We’re Playing)

Today is a chance to make a new start, and it’s imperative that we take the opportunity, because the arithmetic of this season is absolutely incredible. You might have noticed that this season we’ve been fulfilling the clichéd idea that Wrexham always do better against the stronger teams in our division. I’ve heard this repeated ever since I was a kid, and I’m inclined to … Continue reading The League is Upside-Down (At Least When We’re Playing)

PREVIEW | Sutton United v Wrexham AFC

We won our first match at Sutton emphatically, triumphing 5-0 in January 2013 as we headed for eventual victory in the FA Trophy. Our subsequent three visits have been nowhere near so successful. We’ve earned one point from a possible nine in league matches at Gander Green Lane, the only time we avoided defeat coming in a 1-1 draw which saw Scott Quigley give us … Continue reading PREVIEW | Sutton United v Wrexham AFC

Waiting For Sutton

Dean Keates takes charge of his 150th game as Wrexham manager across his two spells at the club today. Ironically, an FA Trophy match is the last fixture he’d want to have. The only priority this season is our league position, and while an FA Cup run could have yielded some handy cash for mid-season recruitment, the FA Trophy certainly doesn’t have such financial potential. … Continue reading Waiting For Sutton

Enough Is Enough

I didn’t enjoy last Saturday’s match, but the team’s performance wasn’t the reason. We weren’t great, but neither were we as awful as the reaction of the fans, both in the ground and on social media, would suggest. Apart from a first half period either side of a goalmouth scramble where Sutton claimed the ball had crossed the line, we were the better side, although … Continue reading Enough Is Enough

The latest in a … Continue reading #WxmAnorak | Wrexham AFC 1 Sutton United 1
