Taking A Break
Wednesday, June 21, 2006
World Cup Report Card: Dennis Lawrence
Vs. ENGLAND: Dennis played well for the vast majority of the game, and neutralised Crouch for 80-plus minutes. Although he was not blameless for the first goal, it would be harsh to deny him credit for a generally very strong performance under a great deal of pressure.
Vs. PARAGUAY: I've only seen the highlights of this game, so it's difficult to comment (not that that will stop me). Obviously, Dennis can't be blamed for his defensive colleague Brett Sancho's own goal, and responsibility for the second can probably be lain at the feet of Carlos Edwards.
Overall, the best ever performance by a Wrexham player at the World Cup. Of course.

Goodbye For Now
This might be the last post for a considerable period of time, or even the last ever, depending on circumstances. My main concerns are that I won't be able to devote sufficient time to updating the blog (it has suffered recently in terms of original content), and that I may not have regular internet access in a few months' time.
So, who knows what the future holds?

NOTE: This blog will power down over the summer, with fewer posts. It is also possible that I may be unable to continue with regular updates after June, as I may no longer be able to maintain regular internet access.

A win would be nice, it seems like forever since the last one.

Stockport County 2 Wrexham 1
From one point of view, the main thing is that the club's short-term future seems to be reasonably secure. It still hurts that we'll be in League Two next season, though.

Dennis in World Cup Squad
Chester City 2 Wrexham 1
Lee McEvilly headed home a Darren Ferguson cross with 20 minutes left, but Chester snuck the points through Derek Asamoah ten minutes later.
This probably means that both teams are likely to be playing in League Two next season.

Dean Bennett won't take part as he is suspended. Dennis Lawrence and Andy Holt both have injuries, and are hence not certain to feature.

Wrexham 1 Shrewsbury Town 2
Wrexham did get back into the game through Matt Derbyshire, but even McMenamin's dismissal was insufficient to provide the home team with any points.

Team News: Shewsbury
Still with strikers, Lee McEvilly and Matt Derbyshire are both hoping to feature, but Jim Whitley and Lee Roche are definitely out.

Meanwhile, Lee McEvilly is still out (almost certainly), as is Lee Roche, whilst Jim Whitley has a slim chance of playing some part, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Wrexham 1 Swansea City 2 (FAW Premier Cup Final)
Simon Spender got a goal in the second half to make it a contest, but my main consolation has been off the pitch. Denis Smith seems to agree with me.
