    Yep, and the awesome news today is that player of the season goalkeeper Rob Lainton has signed for another 2 years. Wrexham will be solid as fuck at the back again. We'll probably only top up the squad with about 5 players I reckon.

    Holroyd had a decent 2017-2018 season, scored a few, but failed to repeat that. At 32 maybe he's now on a downward trajectory and maybe our system didn't fit him particularly well. He certainly struggled to play centrally in a three as his hold up play is rubbish and he never offered the attacking threat others have done from the left and right. His release wasn't surprising, particularly as we have forwards Fondop, Oswell and Grant contracted. All three have question marks over them as far as next season goes. The bulk of our defence and midfield are remaining too, so I don't think there will be a massive number of new additions over the summer.
  3. Very well produced, but there's not enough actual game in Vader for my liking. And, perhaps more importantly for an experience like this, there's simply not enough freedom to interact with the world either. At least in the bit I played before my battery went again.
  4. Get out there. My garden is pretty small to be honest, but obviously way bigger than any room with furniture in it. The freedom to get around so much of the level with as good as faultless tracking in superhot is revelatory compared to the game on PSVR. I can actually see myself only playing it outside now. Going to bung Star Wars on in the living room when the light finally fades soon.
  5. Yeah, volume at max, maybe I've got a bit of wax in my ears. It's loud enough, but I'm thinking I might like a touch more oomph for certain games.
  6. Holy SHIT this thing comes alive in the garden!!!!!!!!!!! I just did a real life/virtual sideways roll over to a robot jumped up, grabbed him by the chest and pulled his head off You can really go for it and throw yourself around. Fall to the floor and pick up a weapon to shoot up at baddies all that kind of amazing shit. The tracking is absolutely fine at this time with the sun going down.
  7. My replacement was thankfully fully functional Went through the nice little intro thing again and downloaded and played the first proper stage of Robo Recall which seemed fun, although the warping around will take a bit of getting used to in the heat of battle. The Quest does seems very well made, a bit front heavy for obvious reasons, but I think still comfortable to wear.The display is great and seems noticeably better than my regular PS4 VR. Agree about the guardian system though, which is clever, but a little too eager to display itself. I ended up re-drawing it a bit outside the actual boundary of the room I was playing in. Speakers sound ace, but possibly a touch too quiet and lacking in bass for me to not want to bung on headphones for some games in the future. It's charging now, but I'm looking forward to giving Star Wars a go later. Super Hot a definite purchased too.
  8. Should be yeah. The Argos is 30 minutes away, but I think I'd rather go and get it sorted today rather than download and play some stuff and then get it replaced at a later date. Which has also gone through my head.
  9. fuuuuck this great, but the vibration doesn't work in the left controller. Any reports of similar issues? Anyway it's going back straight back. Couldn't find a simple way to ring them, so I've just reserved another at the same Argos for collection after 4pm. Bollocks.
  10. Late ordered from Amazon after much deliberation about what I'd do the first time they came back in stock. My birthday is 11 months away, but fuck it I deserve some untethered six degrees of freedom VR as much as anyone. Now obviously jumped on the Argos immediate collection bandwagon and I'm not in work until tomorrow afternoon

    With zero financial fair play and only two promoted through the leagues, it was the unprecedented level of financial doping that was the principle reason for the dislike of Salford in non-league. They'll be far easier to live with in league 2 with 4 promotion slots and limitations on spending. The class of 92 shit will still grate like fuck obviously.

    In a world where Boreham Wood also exist that's quite an achievement.

    Ah okay. Did really well for you as manager to be fair. Worth a couple of quid on Havant and Waterlooville next season perhaps.

    Yeah, I read that Doswell was the new Havant and Waterlooville manager. Seems a strange one to leave you lot for a Conference South side.

    0-0 with an extra time winner for Eastleigh and a disappointing, frustrating, and annoying way to finish our season. A performance typical of much of Wrexham's season that illustrated how relying on solidity at the back to get you through matches rather than being able to and scoring loads of goals can be an issue. Small moments can have a bigger impact, notably decisions by the officials. First half we weren't great, resorting to much ineffectual hoof, but then I didn't think Eastleigh were either, who passed the ball around quite nicely, but any good play by them generally fell to pieces in the final third. We were definitely the better side in the second half. For a while the breakthrough seemed pretty inevitable, the crowd more lively and we had them under a fair bit of pressure, but when the goal did come it was ruled out for a foul on their keeper which shouldn't have been given. So extra time came and a great strike and a couple of crucial clearances off the line see an energy sapped Eastleigh travelling to Salford to get battered on Sunday instead of us. So that's it. Months of striving for promotion and the playoffs and they are over in a flash. Hopefully we'll knock on the door again next season, the season after that, and the one after that. That's all I can ask for. Eventually, over time, the hinges will pull away from frame, the door will sag and it will fall off. Eventually. See you next season Sutton and Stockport. Bollocks.
