  1. Mullin deserves to be on 20k a week. At least. I don't know what it looked like on the TV, but I promise you Wrexham were pretty magnificent today. The game increasingly had the feel of when we came back from 1-0 down to to knock out Middlesbrough in the late 90s, partly by putting 3 men on Juninho, but mostly by simply being the better side. You could see those goals coming, we just didn't quite get over the line this time. Now to Bramall Lane and a 5-4 away victory because why the fuck not.
  2. Just the 1-0 for Notts County against poor at the minute Halifax keeps us top on goal difference then. I'll be a fun, but strange one tomorrow against Sheffield United. Being the underdog at home is just not something we're used to, although Parkinson's playing style has won him some big cup games in his career, notably at Bradford, so can kind of suit it I think. It did away at Coventry last round. A Premier League bound Sheffield United will be a step up from Coventry and they should have way too much quality even with changes, but we're also just not used to losing at the Racecourse and we're used to scoring at the Racecourse. We'll go for it and try to take advantage of set pieces. They'll attempt to twat us as professionally as possible, most likely do that, but then fuck knows it's the FA Cup isn't it.
  3. It is tight. As long as we avoid a load of injuries to key players I’m fairly confident that we will finish on 100 points plus. I’m just not sure we’ll be the only side to do that! It is nice to be properly top though yes thanks. 3 points ahead, same games played, more goals, better goal difference. It feels mildly significant that we took that chance last night. Pressure maybe back on Notts County a bit. Looking over your shoulder at Chesterfield too.
  4. What the bat looks fantastic. I'l get that and probably love it, but immediately feel despondent that we won't be getting a WarioWare VR game any time soon.
  5. I'm all in now after wavering. Horizon and Switchback appear essentials for immediately showing what it can do, which have me most excited. Sounds next level as fuck this. Walking Dead probably. Not played any VR for a couple of years so Moss 2 is a definite after enjoying the first. Quite fancy The Last Clockwinder too. Looks to be well reviewed. Rez aiming with your eyes sounds mental and like it will be shit, but I'm hugely intrigued!
  6. It's perfectly possible to have a side rammed full of lower league mercenaries, but also function as a team! Plymouth are having a magnificent season, what would you estimate your wage bill is compared to Ipswich?
  7. Ah the Mullin maneuver, tempting a higher level player who wants to return closer to home. But he sounds like he would take Elliot Lee's role's in the side, who has being doing brilliantly recently. Way too good for our league himself. So yeah, I'd be surprised if we are trying to bring in another high profile player in that position. If we need anyone to improve the squad, it would be a forward who can score goals, a striker to cover/rotate a bit with Mullin and Palmer. And maybe a really top class keeper. But then, if your in the know people are suggesting it....sure we'll have him! Even he's not going to win the league for us though. Not with Notts County smashing their way towards 120 points we're not.
  8. There's no rumour of that at our end. What kind of player is he for you? Midfielder yeah? I'd be surprised if we signed another midfielder now. Andy Cannon only came in from from Hull 3 weeks ago who was superb for Stockport on loan at the end of last season. Just waiting for him to get match fit.
  9. A bold new era for non league football began today as our version of iFollow launched and I got to watch Wrexham win away at Eastleigh. Indeed I could have watched all games not postponed for an introductory half price of 4.75 if I'd fancied it. A surprisingly slick experience it was too with a decent picture and some half decent local radio commentators. Impressive. Will repeat at all future available opportunity. Well done the national league for not being shit for once.
  10. I managed to order one. Will be charged when items ready to ship it says. Not 100% sure I'll stick with it. I'll see what my finances look like in a couple of months. And a better idea of the game lineup maybe. My nephew is VR nuts which will steer me towards keeping it. The idea of a family VR headset makes 530 quid a bit more palatable. Announce Astro Bot 2 you wankers!
  11. I don't recall registering for anything, but got an invite. I did order the PSVR camera attachment though. My purchase history will also tell them I was quite enthusiastic about PSVR, at least initially. Was all over Playstation Move before it too. They probably know I own a Quest, bongos, dance mats, maracas, guitars, drum kits, balance boards, Mario Karts, steering wheels, Stack Light Rifles, and turntables too. They probably think I'm nailed on. But I'm afraid they're going to have to show me a bit more variety than a few shooty things that while will I'm sure look amazing will also utterly fail to have the ground breaking impact of Superhot. For 530 quid anyway.
  12. Yeah we were great. I'd say that was pretty typical of the way we've been playing at home. The money we've splashed on our squad translating into stuff on the pitch. Tunnicliffe coming in at left centre back recently has helped solidify us at the back a bit more too. An incredibly comfortable win really, but then Oldham are struggling this season. 2nd round draw live from Wrexham tomorrow. This is the first time we've been at this stage in quite some time. I did have a feeling we might do something in the FA Cup this year. Still do.
  13. Left the car and went down on the train for more than a few pre and post match Wrexham Pilsners yesterday. Always like doing that. A bloke was outside the ground selling 10 quid t shirts with a picture of Paul Mullin's Fuck the Tories boots on them. I say selling, I didn't actually see him sell one. Some cracking goals and a decent defensive display in a comfortable 4-0 against Phil Parkinson's Altrincham in the Phil Parkinson derby also featuring a James Jones on either side. That's 9 home wins in a row to start the season. The first time in 100 years we've done that apparently.
  14. Sorry. If today's second half is anything to go by we might be starting to sort out our away form a bit. Should have won.
  15. What did you go for? Today wasn’t a Wrexham game to bet on really. I wasn’t quite sure which way it would go. 1-1 will do though against Boreham Wood. 3 points off the top, away games against all of the top 4 out of the way and more favourable fixtures coming up.
  16. We again forgot how to defend last night in the second half and a comfortable as it could be 3-0 ended up a 3-2 against Blyth in the replay. Honestly think that needs sorting if we are going to win the league. An odd atmosphere where the crowds attention turned to who our potential next opponents would be. Bizarre jubilant cheers near then end as Chester took the lead against Oldham in extra time followed by a resurfacing of anti Chester chants in anticipation of a local derby. They ended up losing on pens after a late equaliser by ex Wrexham striker Mike Fondop. Disney didn't get the Wrexham vs Chester match they ordered.
  17. Switch 2 making games for my PS5 instead. Zelda 4K 60FPS, a ridiculous looking Mario Kart 9, and Nintendo VR games. I'm not bothered about playing anything on the train or on the bog.
  18. We've obviously still got to win tomorrow, but anyone at home that we've not played for ages would be nice. Someone big and not too far away with an away end with a decent capacity would be acceptable too. Bolton would be good. I love the FA Cup and we've been shit in it for the last few years. It's about time we had a little run.
  19. Yep, they'll be a series two. I reckon it's been brilliant. About as good as I could expect it to be I think. Importantly, because some were worried about this, an accurate and fair depiction of the town and the club. That's the Wrexham I know. Not a "nasty town" as MrHendo described on the previous page. And it coveys the madness of a season and a half under the new owners really well. There's a magic formula there in the episodes where they build things around one particular game. I think those are generally the strongest. Loved the Ryan coming over on his own one, but my favourite episode is the Chesterfield game with lovely Scoot from The Declan Swans, Lainton, and that kid collecting autographs. Owners taking a back seat. More than any other showing how much a part of peoples lives a football club is for those who trundle down to watch games come rain or shine. And that interconnectivity between supporters, players and club you get. Basically how special non/lower league football is in this country. Done to perfection in 25 minutes. Really liked that short bit on Grimsby in the last episode too. We've shown you Wrexham, but there all these other clubs out there too with their stories.
  20. The magic of the Cup Blyth with a 90th minute deserved equaliser and a supporter with a toaster on his head. It was broadcast on ESPN2 in America so I managed to watch it. We weren't great, but at least I get a bonus game to go to on Tuesday.
  21. He left to join St Albans on loan in January. There are one or two things out of sequence in the series, and shots of players training who weren't at the club at the time, shots of fans who weren't actually at those particular games, that sort of thing. Assuming that's all seen as not mattering. Which I suppose it doesn't really unless you've received a mid season football banning order and the magistrate spots you at the Dover game. There are quite a few errors with the subtitle stuff too where they are clearly guessing things like the words to the Aaron Hayden song, managing to hear "Wears a Deadpool Mask" instead of "Wears a Magic Hat" which obviously makes much more sense. Not sure why they didn't run it all by someone local. Actually I think I remember hearing Humphrey Ker saying he checked some subtitle stuff they weren't sure of which would explain things.
  22. I've spotted Megan Ganz at a couple of games. He was with her years before she started doing stuff with McElhenney. So without Ganz presumably Humphrey Ker doesn't end up working with McElhenney either. And McElhenney doesn't get introduced to football and none of this happens.
  23. Fingers crossed, although Chesterfield held on to Tshimanga in January last season. Notts County have more money than Chesterfield. Fleetwood kept hold of Vardy until the end of the season, won promotion, and then sold him for a million.
  24. Not just the keeper, I'd imagine half our team who were responsible for the lethargic defensive display won't be too happy. Even Hayden who grabbed two goals. Defensively we had the best record in the league before Saturday, but do have these completely forgetting how to defend games in us. We've conceded 5 goals three times in home games in 2022. The most ridiculous thing is that we've won two of those games. Not boring no! FA Cup legends Blyth Spartans away in the FA Cup on Saturday. Who we have a bit of history with when they earned a fifth round replay in 1978 and switched the game to St James Park. A crowd of officially 42,000, but reckoned to be over 50,000 watching a 2-1 Wrexham win. We got promoted that year. Let's all go up this season. That would be nice.
