PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Eastleigh

I’m sure you won’t need to be reminded of what happened the last time Eastleigh visited The Racecourse. A traumatic home defeat in the National League play-offs ended our season in controversial circumstances, as we conceded the only goal in extra time after a hotly-contested decision to disallow a Kieran Kennedy goal which would have won the game in normal time. Ironically, that defeat came … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Eastleigh

O VAR, Where Art Thou?

I’ve spent the season complaining about the impact VAR has on the game. After last Saturday, I’m thinking again. Come to think of it, I’ve also spent a decade moaning about National League referees, but Yeovil’s first goal against us last weekend wasn’t something you could blame the officials for. They clearly needed some help to understand what happened and judge it correctly. I know … Continue reading O VAR, Where Art Thou?

PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wrexham AFC

We’ve only faced Yeovil Town twice, but both occasions were packed with goals. Unfortunately, in our only trip to Huish Park it was the home team who provided most of them! We travelled to Somerset in November 2003 for a first round FA Cup match, and took a real beating. We were 4-0 down after an hour and ended up losing 4-1, with. Chris Armstrong … Continue reading PREVIEW | Yeovil Town v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW | Bromley v Wrexham AFC

Last Saturday’s postponement means that Dean Keates’ 100th game as Wrexham manager comes today, against the side he beat to earn his first win as manager. Bromley were the visitors to The Racecourse when goals from Shaun Harrad and Gerry McDonagh earned a 2-1 home win in October 2016. However, our record at Hayes Lane could do with some improvement. Luke Young’s 77th minute winner … Continue reading PREVIEW | Bromley v Wrexham AFC

PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

Tomorrow is Dean Keates’ hundredth game as Wrexham manager. He’s the sixteenth person to reach that milestone, and boasts the fifth best league loss percentage in our history. Keates is only the second person to have two spells as our boss, and is enjoying considerably more success than the other one. Billy Morris was in the Racecourse hot seat twice in the early 1960s, but … Continue reading PREVIEW | Wrexham AFC v Torquay United

What Would Mike Do?

I’m generally reluctant to criticize opposing players. What we see as a cynical foul when we’re the victims is a great piece of professionalism when executed by one of our own, and we should bear that in mind when we judge others. However, the behavior of Mike Fondop has gone well beyond the pale this season, especially when you consider the source of his inspiration. … Continue reading What Would Mike Do?
