The Wales Under-21s return to The Racecourse for a mouth-watering double-bill this week. Do you remember these classic matches at the oldest international stadium in the World? Continue reading Remember These Classic Wales Internationals At The Racecourse?
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
This is Cymro_Cymraeg’s first column for Wrexhamfan. Its purpose is to round up all the latest news from around the football club and get you readers excited for next season!
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
>It’s scary to think I might have been right for once! If it’s true that Dean Saunders is on a shortlist of five for the Wales job, then there’s a genuine chance that he might not see the season out with us. Hate to say I told you so! Of the five who are said to be on the list, two can surely be written … Continue reading Saunders On His Way?
>Another superb result for Brian Flynn’s Under-21s today, who are again in with a great shout of getting to the European finals, but what does it do for us? With Chris Maxwell keeping a clean sheet and Marc Williams playing for the first hour up front, it’s natural to be proud, but another play in the starting line-up naturally makes me think twice. Neil Taylor … Continue reading Who Benefits From International Experience?
Saturday’s performance was rank, no two ways about it. I was asked afterwards if I’d put it in my worst ten Wrexham performances. I’d put it in my top one. It was embarrassing. However, one of the things which upset me most about last Saturday’s fiasco was that Brian Carey was left carrying the can. It wasn’t Carey’s team, but he had to come out … Continue reading Carey Shouldn’t Carry The Can
> Don’t you just love being patronised? Apparently Dean Saunders is the next manager of Wales and we’re just a testing ground for the FAW. Funny that, because the bloke doesn’t seem to give you that impression! Saunders looks like he’s fully committed to improving us, rather than using us for his own ends-perhaps this story’s more about the national media’s angle than anything else. … Continue reading >Plucky Little Wrexham!
>Is my annoyance at the Welsh F.A. looking to give Llanelli’s rugby stadium some senior Welsh internationals just a kneejerk reaction? I can’t deny that a lifetime of seeing the Welsh agenda set by the south, both politically and on the media, has left me with a chip on my shoulder, and perhaps we should look favourably at any new venue. However, I find it … Continue reading >Stradey On!
>Here‘s a piece of good news I’ve been waiting to hear for a while! Toshack has been contemplating whether he wants to commit himself to the Welsh job for three and a half more years for a while now, and there has been a real possibility that if he decided to retire, his successor will be our very own Dean Saunders. Saunders’ work with Toshack … Continue reading >Tosh Stability Is Good For Us
>The Independent’s interview with Dean Saunders doesn’t necessarily come up with much that is new, although it’s still a good read, but getting national coverage just makes you realise what an advantage it is being a Welsh club! Being one of the big clubs in a country means we have a much higher profile than clubs like, say, Oldham, who are clearly superior to us … Continue reading >Saunders Hits The Big Time!
>Young Chris Maxwell looks like he’s causing a stir at Connah’s Quay, becoming the first Nomads player to achieve an international call-up when he was picked for Wales’ Under-19 squad for their European Championship qualifier against Turkey. It’s good to see the youngster making an impression-he will hopefully be one of the loaned players we’ll want to bring back! Continue reading >Maxwell making an impression
>It looks like we could lose another game on November 18th, as our home match with Forest Green Rovers coincides with the Welsh Semi-Professional side’s game with Finland in Llanelli. Confirmation is expected this week, but with three of our players expected to be called up-and I believe Silvio might also be called up that week-we’re looking at another postponement. With the favoured, November date … Continue reading >Fixture Backlog Could Return To Haunt Us
