Wrexham has many public weapons in our pursuit of promotion (and world domination!) However, it’s worth acknowledging a rather potent secret weapon in our arsenal. The quality of photography available to the club is remarkable, and it might not be immediately apparent, this is an immense benefit as we try to push forwards. Great photography and Wrexham AFC are no strangers, of course.. As a … Continue reading Quality Photography: Wrexham’s Secret Weapon
Phil Parkinson spent the Summer accumulating strength in depth so his side wouldn’t fold under the effects of an injury crisis as we did last season. It’s an appropriate moment to take stock of Parkinson’s squad replenishment as we’ve finally seen what Jordan Tunnicliffe has to offer. Tunnicliffe was an eye-catching capture. He enjoyed an impressive season with Crawley Town in League Two last season, … Continue reading Tunnicliffe Takes His Opportunity
I’m delighted to say that the Final Whistle podcast, which I started off at the LDV Vans Trophy final in 2005, is the longest-running football podcast in the world. I’ve been researching this for over a year, and no podcast which began before Final Whistle is still running. An American podcast began before us, but no longer features football, while The Guardian and The Times … Continue reading Final Whistle: The Oldest Football Podcast in the World!
The good times continue to roll, and the remarkable crowds continue to roll in at The Racecourse. Now we just need to ensure that Wrexham Council do their duty next month and ensure that we can include even more local people in this uplifting experience. We enjoyed our biggest crowd of the season on Tuesday, as we broke the 10,000 barrier for the first time … Continue reading Time For Wrexham Council To Step Up To The Plate
History was made on Tuesday night. For the first time, Wrexham fans cheered a Chester goal! What could make such a remarkable thing come to pass? The short answer is that if both cross-border rivals won their FA Cup replays we’d clash in a barn-storming first round tie. The long answer is considerably more nuanced. When you get what you desire, it can mean you … Continue reading I hear you’re a Chester fan now
It felt like a bit of a surprise on Tuesday when we changed our formation. The surprise was that it didn’t work. We didn’t earn ourselves an equaliser, and we failed to mount late pressure on Notts County’s wobbly defence, despite having carved a number of good opportunities out throughout the match. That was disappointing, because we’ve regularly fought back successfully after switching shape. There’s … Continue reading In Case of Emergency
Was last Tuesday the best performance Wrexham have managed under Phil Parkinson? Quite possibly: this was a sumptuous display which laid bare exactly what the manager has been looking to achieve with this squad. I’m bemused by claims that Parkinson is too defensive, an accusation levelled at the manager by a disgruntled minority as recently as our last home game. We scored three goals in … Continue reading Was This Parky’s Best Win?
The National League’s decision-making process is obscure, opaque and obtuse. The only guarantee is that, if something is obviously a good idea, they won’t approve it. Continue reading Small-Mindedness Versus The American Stream
“Welcome to Wrexham” was always going to be a game-changer. As I explained last week, that was always the intention: the exposure we receive should help us to expand exponentially as new fans are attracted to the club. After the US premiere of the show, the football club gained 6,000 followers on Twitter overnight. We still have top billing on the various streaming services which … Continue reading Review: “Welcome to Wrexham”
We’ve had so many remarkable things happen to us over the last couple of years, but even in the midst of stiff competition, the launch of a documentary by Disney about us is an occasion of note. It’s no coincidence that we’ve been launched stateside though: it’s all part of the owners’ carefully-conceived plan to take us on an incredible journey. The most common point … Continue reading Welcome to Wrexham: The Club With a Unique Plan
You know the crew and editors have done a good job when they successfully home in on a person who deserves to be highlighted. That’s why Paul Rutherford’s emotional star turn in episode 2 felt particularly gratifying. Continue reading “Welcome to Wrexham” Reflects Paul Rutherford’s Passion
The long-awaited “Welcome to Wrexham” premiered in the USA yesterday: here’s a selection of the rave reviews it got: ‘Welcome to Wrexham’ Review: Two Actors and Soccer Lovers, One Goal – Wall Street Journal How two Hollywood stars plan to save a team, and a town, ‘desperate for a lifeline’ – LA Times Welcome to Wrexham: How Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney plan to revive … Continue reading “Welcome to Wrexham”‘s Here!

I just stumbled across this, and although it’s straightforward and brief, it does a nice job of illustrating how Wrexham AFC can reach out across generations and create a community. Continue reading What Wrexham AFC is about
