    League 1, 2, Non League Football 2018-19 Season

    It's certainly looking good for Leyton Orient now, although I do see them dropping a few points from their games. Reports suggest our two new additions were alright against Hartlepool, but giving away a shit penalty when we always struggle to come back from behind away from home wasn't ideal. I thought Brian Hughes got the combination of front players wrong when I saw the team sheet to be honest. He gambled and completely changed our formation against Barrow 3 games ago and we were apparently awful. Undoubtedly a great start for him, but having a new manager working things out and making mistakes is probably not helping our promotion aspirations at the moment.

    That table is fucking nuts. Wrexham vs Maidstone was not exactly the best game of football ever last Saturday, but we won.. They were shit and we were a bit ropy at times. A goal from Tollitt on his last appearance for us as his loan ends. He'll me missed. Two interesting signings this week though as replacements. Anthony Spyrou is a young forward from Norwich who has been doing well and scoring in the Premier League 2 whatever that is. Principally signed for the Spyrou the Dragon headlines, but hopefully he can do as well as Pyke (Huddersfield loan)did earlier this season. Loans from high up do have tendency to be misses rather than hits. Perhaps a more predictably decent singing is a midfielder called Kemy Augutien, who was amazing in 10 games for Barrow this season according to their fans. He sits deep and passes the ball, which is what we miss with Walker and Summerfield out injured. I believe he'll be the first Curacaoan international to ever play for us. Not the easiest of games for us away at Hartlepool today, although they are one of the few sides in our league without relegation worries or promotion hopes so hopefully they won't be arsed.

    Yeah diabolical one for us last night losing 3-1 to barrow Been in Budapest this week and didn't follow it closely, but Pearson was out on top of Walker. The two most important players in our side. Brad Walker may not play for us again this season and is back at shrewsbury at the moment. Still shit though. Please don't collapse like at the end of last season Wrexham.

    Promotion dreams shattered as Leyton Orient beat us 1-0 to go top of the league. Pretty even and fairly scrappy game first half and I thought they looked a bit shaky at the back in that period, but then as Beavon and Tollitt tired up front in the second our ability to get at them diminished. Not that we created loads, we didn't, and there was a bit too much hoof ball and relying on picking up the second ball from us. An early injury to Walker was a huge blow to us as he's crucial sat there in front of the back 4 shielding the defence and picking passes. Bobby Grant who came on for him is pretty shit and we didn't function anything like as well as we have been in midfield after the unintended reshuffle. Hopefully his injury isn't too bad. Leyton Orient were stronger in the second and threatened more. It was irritating to get beaten by a shot from a central defender that took a deflection to go in off the post, but they just about deserved the win. It was also irritating to get beaten by a side sponsored by The Sun obviously. Two winnable home games for us next that I'd quite like us to win.

    The North has the bigger clubs and I think has been more competitive in recent years. If you look at this season, Torquay and Woking, who were relegated last year, are way ahead of the other teams at the top of the National League South. The two southern teams promoted last season, Braintree and Havant and Waterlooville, are in the bottom 4 of the National league. That's quite telling. And basically yes, that's exactly what will happen, they will move clubs from the South to the North, which I suppose could have a bit of an impact on clubs in terms of the impact of travelling and maybe away support numbers.

    That's an unbelievable crowd for that division, but then Stockport are a big club. Crossing my fingers for them this season. It's a tough league to get out with only one automatic place and seemingly much higher standard of teams compared to the National League South. And then, like Wrexham, I'm sure they'll be back in the football league eventually. Eventually. Great crowd at The Racecourse too on Saturday with over 7100 there. All stands singing and Bryan Hughes chants making an appearance. It was ace. I'd imagine Leyton Orient vs Wrexham on Saturday will be sizeable too, although the early kick off and it being on TV will no doubt affect numbers a bit.

    Yes indeed. One of your lot Luke Young putting an ace cross into the box for our new goal machine Akil Wright to head home after racing into the box unmarked from midfield. It was a tough game as expected against a fairly in form Chesterfield who did a particularly decent job restricting the space for our attacking players. Zero chance of them going down. Nothing much has changed in the league by the looks of it, but it definitely could next weekend with us away at Leyton Orient (on the tele) and Solihull away at Salford. The right results in those games and I'll start to really believe it might just be happening possibly.

    A 93rd minute equaliser from Cole Stockton at Gateshead leaves us all feeling confident and upbeat after racking up a brilliant 7 points from 3 long away games in a row. 1300 miles travelled in 8 days apparently. And I don't know whether this made the global sporting headlines (it should have), but ex legendary Wrexham manager of 12 years Brian Flynn was appointed our new assistant this week too. The man who nurtured Bryan Hughes as a young player returning to aid his beginnings in football management. He's ludicrously experienced, he knows the club and is loved at the club, he's got a great relationship with Hughes, and he knows how to achieve success while playing amazing football. It's perfect. Can't wait for the Chesterfield game next week.
  9. I was getting obliterated pretty much every game just now. Always played in the evening before where I've had one or two seconds, but the standard in this game seems insane at this time of day. Presumably because all the ace Japanese players are on. Is this usual?

    A casual glance suggests that no team has a particularly easy or tricky set of fixtures. As you say, there's a long way to go yet. The penultimate matchday of the season on Easter Monday looks a big one though with Solihull vs Orient and Salford vs Fylde. The bookies have Leyton Orient and Solihull on pretty close odds to win the league, which is about right I'd say. Although personally I'd go for Solihull.. The experience in their squad and battling style of football will definitely see them motoring along picking up plenty of points and recovering from any set backs. I think they'll cope with the pressure a little better too. We've risen to third favourites now, which is probably fair, although Fylde are a strong and capable side and they have league top scorer Danny Rowe. Salford could lose the next 5 games or go unbeaten and win the league. God knows what'll happen there. Their form is terrible at the moment though.

    Tollitt double for us in a 2-0 win. Annoyingly we only have him for another month before he returns to Tranmere, just as he has become a huge part of our team. It appears that we are playing a more attacking style under our new manager. One of my mates was chatting with Shaun Pearson on Monday in a jacuzzi and he was expecting Wrexham to concede more and score more between now and the end of the season. Wherever we finish, it looks like we are throwing caution to the wind (to a degree) and going for it. Another long journey up to 7th placed Gateshead on Saturday. Solihull, Orient, and Fylde are all in the FA Trophy quarter final, so win or lose we will still be top for our next home game against Chesterfield a week on Saturday, which should equal a healthy crowd and ace atmosphere. On the FA Trophy, it's been pointed out that the last side to win the league and the Trophy in the same season was Wycombe in 1993. Those three can't rest all of their first 11 for games and it'll always lead to a bit of fixture congestion, so that could definitely be a big factor in a title race where there's so little between anyone.

    You do realise that Salford get higher gates than Sutton? By my calculations, I think we would have to finish above every other side in the league to be promoted automatically.

    Yeah, 4th plays 7th and 5th plays 6th in one off games and the winners then play 2nd and 3rd in one off games to get to Wembley. Highest ranked side is at home in those games. I'm no fan of playoffs to be honest. The best sides over 46 games should go up and that is it. However, at least this system does give the teams finishing 2nd and 3rd a big advantage. Our home record is excellent, so if we finish in either of those two places I fancy our chances to then progress to the final. Then we all close our eyes and hope for the best.
