Re: Barrow AFC v Eastleigh FC

Did one of you slip into the Eastleigh dressing room and slip a few pills into their keeper's Bovril? He can come back any time he likes. The result today was far more important than just about anything, including the embarrassing turnout. I wonder how many of them will come back when their faces wi...

Re: Music over PA

Yes, the music's not for me either. "Glad All Over" has too much of a premature celebratory feel to it for my liking. I never feel particularly glad all over when we are just the one goal up, and it was more like Shakin' All Over as we were coming under the cosh in the later stages and the nerves w...

Re: Prediction for the season

Predictions are exactly what it says on the tin! Some will be more pessimistic than others and some will be overly optimistic. All I know is we have come such a long way together in such a short length of time and if we continue to work together both financially and structurally then it can only be...

Re: Prediction for the season

Mark that was a very boring and long post that I didn't get to end of!! :sentoff: :D Truth is no-one has a clue right now. Pre season means bugger all. We look better and more together off the field than we have done for years but that counts for nothing on it. Our August fixture list is tough on p...

Re: Prediction for the season

No one outside the Barrow camp believes we will be anywhere near the play offs. Absolutely no one. Tipsters, bookies, sticking with the usuals. The Wrexham Red Passion website today quoted an online tipster/blogger as suggesting Wrexham will win the NL this season. I've looked at the blog which run...

Re: Barrow v Sheffield United U23s

Impressive performance. No weak links at all, and some excellent football played. Difficult to know how good or not the opposition were, but when they had the ball the closing down from Barrow was noticeable, and they never settled on the ball. 3-1 a proper reflection on how well Barrow played. Sta...

Re: Lancaster City Fc (A) preseason

In case anyone missed Evatt's interview, he is not entirely happy with some of his squad. From the NWEM: Evatt said: "I'm not unhappy because all it's doing is making my job a little bit easier. At the minute, I have a clear idea what our starting XI will be come Wrexham. "They can take that as the...

Re: Lancaster City Fc (A) preseason

Really hope we don’t need to use Eldson much this season +2 looks awkward, gets caught out of position and gives dangerous free kicks away. +3. Looks at odds with the bulk of the squad as if he doesn't really fit. Has had injuries and not a lot of first team time (until pre-season) but increasingly...

Re: Barrow v Blackpool

Byron Harrison pre the Lincoln injury was possibly one of the best strikers we have had. He tried or was pushed into coming back too early and it did him or us any favours. If he is fully fit again he could be an asset +2. Byron was never the same after that game. However, I think there is another ...

Ask me again when we've got someone who will take on the responsibility of actually shooting at goal!
We didn't have anyone who'd shoot at goal last season and we still finished 11th. This season we'll have better quality players who wont shoot at goal.

Re: Prediction for the season

I’ll be honest, Im surprised at how many still see us no more than mid table. Ian Evatt would probably agree with you Jonty. We have been riding a wave of relative optimism since he back end of last season but its difficult to criticize people for their caution. As I see it, we've lost two seriousl...

Re: Fixtures released

Well so much for all the romantic notions of a great home tie on a warm August day in front of a large HS crowd. Wrexham away does not really fit that bill. To be honest I'd rather be going to Wrexham on the opening day than on the last day of the season. We were statistically due an away start anyw...

Re: SQUAD

perhaps he's gonna wait and see what trialists turn up he might just find a gem Could be. Though you get the impression that this will be a very different pre-season during which the primary aim will be to bring the squad to the boil rather than seek additional squad members. If Turner can prove hi...

Re: Waddington signs

Hird came to us quite late last season and I think was carrying an injury when he arrived. All being well in pre-season I think he will be in our first back four of the season.
