Here’s a radical thought: could a striker, brought in expressly to address a lack of goals in a team, be considered a success despite failing to find the net in his first 315 minutes on the pitch for his new club? I’d argue that after a slow start, Jason Oswell is starting to look like he has something useful to contribute, despite his lack of … Continue reading You Know What Jason Oswell Needs? The Welsh Premier Cup
Let’s start by getting all the important facts out in the open. Neil Taylor’s challenge on Seamus Coleman was inexcusable. No matter what you say about it, there is no defence for a challenge like that. If, at any point in this post, you think I’m making excuses for him, please refer back to that over-arching fact. Secondly, I’ve got to know Taylor a little … Continue reading Neil Taylor’s Fake News Weekend
A Ponzi scheme is a type of illegal investment plan which relies on new people joining the scheme, so that their money can be used to pay earlier joiners. Once the scheme runs out of new investors it collapses. The idea is as old as the hills. The scheme ends when potential investors wise up to the unsustainable nature of the model, and fear they … Continue reading The Premiership Ponzi Scheme
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 never faced North Ferriby before, but can go into the final knowing we’ve got a great deal more experience than them in cup competitions, and have … Continue reading PREVIEW: FA Trophy final – Wrexham FC v North Ferriby United

After a busy pre-season, with Kevin Wilkin and his staff preparing for the new season, there’s been one subject that has failed to go unresolved, the goalkeeper. Our initial thoughts before going into pre-season was that Joslain Mayebi and Andy Coughlin will battle it out for the number one shirt but since then Mayebi has failed to return to training, his contract expired and he is … Continue reading The goalkeeping merry-go-round
The world’s a confusing place. My phone just told me it’s three hours since I last drank a glass of water. When I was a kid my phone lived in my parents’ hall and never presumed to tell me anything other than someone was trying to talk to me. But despite all the confusion and change, some things stay unaltered. The oddly unsatisfying nature of … Continue reading When Wes Baynes Ruled The World
I’ve been to two events recently that have convinced me our club is going in the right direction. The first was the Trust AGM, and the second was the friendly against Swansea U21s. They were both enjoyable affairs, both leaving me with many questions left unanswered, but also a sense that the club is packed with talented, determined people. AGMs are clearly not a majority … Continue reading The Ducks are Aligned
Excuse me Sirs, I wonder if I may have a few minutes of your time, so that you can ask me some questions? You read that right, I want you to ask the questions. If you take note of my opinions, and thoughts, I will feel that you value my contribution. If I feel you value my contribution I might keep contributing. If I feel … Continue reading Excuse me Sirs?

Woking’s Kingfield Stadium, while homely, is hardly a venue you’d associate with major football landmarks, but tomorrow’s match will see it play host to a significant event … Continue reading Leader Preview: Woking FC v Wrexham FC
Here’s something I wrote last week for WSC Daily. It’ll be very interested to see if Andy Carroll gets the same level of justice this week that Wrexham’s Steven Wright got last October. If he doesn’t the silent discrepancy in the disciplinary system will be exposed once more. Carroll’s red card against Swansea yesterday was very harsh, and if justice is done his suspension will … Continue reading Will West Ham’s Andy Carroll Get the Same Justice as Stephen Wright ?
So what was the highlight of 2013? I know the answer’s obvious so I feel terribly disloyal in admitting this: for me it was run close by the day we were robbed! CheeseGate took the club on a journey which ended with us making a bit of cash and beating some of the biggest clubs in England! It was a remarkable moment at Kidderminster which … Continue reading How Wrexham Took Over The World
