  1. Over 8,200 at Wrexham against Woking yesterday which was fantastic to see. Great positive atmosphere too. They looked a solid stronger side than previous seasons and it pleased me how we battled away to secure a 1-0 victory, particularly after going down to 10 men with 15 minutes left. Both sets of fans booing the referee off at the end for shitness including a clear penalty not being given for Woking. Wanting anything more out of a game of football is just being greedy. One or two surprising results with Chesterfield failing to beat doomed Dover and Stockport losing 3-0 at home to Yeovil. Oh yeah, we're a Rest of the World side in FIFA 22 which gets a big shrug of the shoulders from me. Surely Wrexham advisor Peter Moore could have put his weight and connections to better use, like getting Paul Mullin into Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania. We're apparently entering into a "multi year innovation partnership" with EA. I'm assuming all the innovation will have to come from our side.
  2. A game that further highlighted room for improvement by the sound of it, but coming back to get a draw after being 2-0 down away at Southend is decent. Particularly as we were missing Mullin up front due to a minor injury. Next Saturday at home against Woking feels like the first game where victory is expected and booing will no doubt ensue from some sections should that not happen. Although they have won 2 out of 3 so far. 4-0 away at Torquay last game. Start packing your bags Parky!
  3. Should be yeah, although I think the standard of the top sides has moved up a notch this year with plenty of money splashed around. Chesterfield added excellent striker Tshimanga for 250,000 to an already decent side. Probably the most expensive squad from last season Stockport added a rumoured 350,000 Scott Quigley who scored all the goals for Barrows promotion. Then you have Dagenham and Redbridge who already had a small, but excellent squad and have continued their form from the end of last season. All are potential league winners. I think it will probably take a while for Wrexham to really hit their stride as players get used to each other. We've got a month and a half of tough fixtures coming up too before an easier run of games up until Christmas.
  4. Some excellent football played tonight that fizzled out towards the end because both sides were knackered. If the James Jones goal in the first half hadn't been incorrectly ruled out we'd have gone on to win it I reckon, so we were definitely unlucky. I was pleased how we pushed for and got the equaliser after half time though. New players being chucked in, so we'll improve, but I still thought we were pretty fantastic at times. Particularly in the first half. Mullin and Hyde up front are a force to be reckoned with. Notts County looked more resilient at the back compared to the end of last season, defending well throughout, and obviously showed their quality when they had the ball. Great game.
  5. Yeah, it surprised me a bit. And they'll always have a chance with Gary Johnson in charge, but I thought Torquay had had become a little bit weaker over the summer. The game tonight could go either way. Notts County are decent and have strengthened. We've started slowly in our first two matches, so we could see an early away goal. It sounds like we haven't particularly controlled the games either, but have been full of energy and great in attack. I'll be surprised if we don't score. We're generally shit on TV and it looks like our owners will be there which could be a bit of a distraction for the first one. It might not be the super duper go reds confident Hollywood star winning mentality that I'm maybe supposed to take now, but I'll be happy with a draw.
  6. 200 thousand is what Cheltenham told their local journalist. I suppose some of that could be dependent on conditions such as promotion or whatever, but for a 31 year old defender who has played almost all of his career in league 2 with only 12 months on his contract it certainly sounds like an awful lot.
  7. Ace 2-0 away win for Wrexham against Eastleigh with Ben Tozer making his debut after signing yesterday for a bit too much money. Now for the big one against Notts County at home on Monday. They looked to have struggled and failed to beat 10 man Torquay today, but no doubt will be amazing against us.
  8. Well I did joke about us nabbing another one of your transfer targets! Yep, we've heard about Tozer's long throw. Can he run and get on the end of them? Presumably he will also know Luke Young, although a couple of years older. Hope he ends up coming to us, sounds like a great version of exactly the kind of player we need.
  9. That'll more than do! Looks like he was injured a fair bit at Crewe so maybe a slight gamble, but it's one you were also clearly prepared to take. Cheltenham have so far refused two offers from us for their centre back Ben Tozer who captained them to the title last season. Not sure whether that will happen or not. He's also reportedly not sure about dropping two divisions, which is fair enough. It does appear that we are trying to build a side capable of promotion from League 2. Just a shame that the National League is at least 4 times as hard as League 2.
  10. So what's James Jones like @filecore? Appeared to have moved down the midfield pecking order for Lincoln, but played loads of games for you last season. Loads of games for Crewe before that. Am I correct in assuming he'll be good for us in the conference?
  11. Yeah, perhaps could have done with both postponed, although 2-2 at Solihull is a decent enough result. We had a bit of a makeshift defence today with ex Burnley, Wolves etc midfielder David Jones in front of them who has come in as player coach and hadn't played a competitive game since January 2020. Jones scored an apparently amazing goal from distance to add to the predictable Mullin one and we almost got away with it, but that injury time Solihull goal from a corner cost us 3 points. Signings to come so we know the squad will be bolstered, just a shame it didn't happen before the start of the season. Another hard game against Eastleigh away next Saturday before the big BT game vs Notts County on bank holiday Monday. Could be a few goals in that one I reckon wev.
  12. Looks good, and a great idea with the names on there. The unveiling sounds a bit premature, but I suppose that meant fewer people were trapped underneath. On the subject of big pieces of cloth, we body bagged our Kop yesterday following the removal of all the barriers. It was looking particularly barren and sad. RIP
  13. Shit, I've always hated the idea of being trapped under one of those flags and that picture is not making my feel any better. Sure it looked ace from the outside though!
  14. A last minute friendly against Curzon Ashton meant I got my first Wrexham game back at the Racecourse yesterday. We were decent in attack and Mullin scored a great goal. Felt good to be back there among familiar voices. Comforting and reassuring. 18 months and nothings changed. And it was nice to give last seasons squad a clap for their efforts. I'd only seen three of our players in the flesh before, which illustrates how much change there has been since we almost got relegated season before last. We've brought forward our Good Friday Solihull away game to next weekend now after both of our scheduled opponents went down with covid. Good that we could do that, but it's a much harder one than Yeovil at home would have been. Yesterday illustrated that we're still desperate for a defensive midfielder or two and could do with another center back. Hopefully that will happen this week.
  15. Cheers man. Always liked Lincoln, but I'm not going to pretend I'm not insanely jealous of how well you've done over the last few years. Emulating that is the dream. Although just being back at the football is way bigger than how the team actually do. Another couple of weeks away until our opener against Yeovil, but I can't wait. Last night I committed myself to arriving at 11.50 at Wrexham General to commence drinking a moderate amount of pre match lager
