William Hill - Bet £10, Get £30 in Free Bets!

It’s been a couple of weeks since the last blog post, mainly because I figured adding to the negative press Wrexham was already getting wasn’t worth it.

Plus being the glass half-full guy I am I was hoping the run of defeats would end at two!

Wrexham's Player/Manager Andy Morrell

The only positive to come out of the Nuneaton game I imagine is that Wrexham actually started a game off well for the first time this season.

Being lucky enough to witness two very good seasons it might be time to accept this season may not live up to the same standards. With so many young players featuring in our first XI it will take time to get used to the league and it will almost be a transitional period for this group of players.

Having a settled back four can be underrated at times and it shows how important it is when the one win of the season so far has featured our first choice back line.

Seeing Kidderminster put a good run together last season has possibly bought the management a bit of time, as we are only a few games into the season, and Kiddy didn’t put their run together until game ten! However the young players cannot be held responsible for the poor run the team has had when you have the squad Wrexham possesses.

Dean Keates will be like a new signing when he returns, but players like Jay Harris need to “curb their enthusiasm” on the pitch and stop picking up needless booking after booking. He is a huge player for Wrexham and is sorely missed when he keeps picking up suspensions.

Brett Ormerod has had a year to adjust to the league now, and after this many games in you would like to think he would have done a lot better than he has. Andy Bishop is also a Football League player but can possibly be excused his lack of goals to this point, not anymore.

I feel sorry for Adrian Cieslewicz who has been made a bit of a scapegoat for the recent poor form. The annoying thing is he seems to only be useful coming off the bench as an impact player late in the game. The issue here is that at least he offers something off the bench! Dropping him and nobody else is not the best decision Andy Morrell has ever made, especially when the players he does pick for the bench are contributing nothing at all.

Unless it’s a ploy to encourage other teams to put in bids for a player who has 18 months left on his contract and would bring in much-needed funds? Who knows.

I still believe we will turn this season around and it may take a bit more time than first thought, but the calls for Andy Morrell to be sacked are certainly a bit premature!

Give him time.
