im not sure thats exactly what he said

cant remember the exact words, but im fairly sure it was along the lines of i had no real options at the time and dempsey wanted to play cos he knew how stretched we were

maybe i read it wrong, but i dont remeber us having dempsey on the pitch and a bench full of lads we thought should be starting

 

At the time he said he wanted to play. 

Latterly he accepted it wasn't wise, given it turned out to be a break.

A few of us did say that we didn't think he should be playing purely because his performance level was simply too low- he was clearly hampered.

i think evatt, like most, could see he wasnt at his best

what we didnt have, in his opinion, was a better option

i honestly cant remember who was playing but pretty sure that at least maghoma and CMG were unavailable

and maybe thomasson wasnt at the level he is now

anyway, its not so important, but most footballers never get to 100% fitness during the season

i think the better ones are the ones who can still perform v close to their best when struggling with impact injuries

Somewhat obtuse.

Iirc, the manager has made reference to getting players back fully fit, and also cocking up with Dempsey. 

It is also clear that over time, Bid in particular has started to look sharper, and as a result, is getting more time.

Don't need to be in contact with anyone to interpret what your eyes tell you.

apart from rushing Toal back after the pizza final, and I'm sure he did the same with Santos after his hospital stint

needs must, like i said

sometimes you play unfit players

its risk v reward

no point saving toal for a game we dint get to and again, its dependent on the alternatives - and also, the chances of making the injury a whole lot worse

wasnt Jones also fooked?

You are the one saying that playing in big matches is not in Bods CV anymore you absolute knob. All I’m saying is how do you know. Only the manager really knows.

No - I'm saying that Evatt is unlikely to start him in big matches and have explained why I think that.

Never said he wouldn't be involved at some stage - just not as a starting striker (unless injuries to others make it a necessity)

If I had to guess, I'd reckon Dion and Vic will start with Bod and CJ on the bench (unless Dan's injury isn't bad enough to keep him out)

My eyes tell me that Bod has been excellent when he's played, both as coming on as a sub or giving the first choice strikers a rest. (TBH I was surprised at how good CJ was when he came on, running around and closing down like a youngster and then winning a pen - superb effort)

Thing is that Evatt has used Bod in specific roles and he's done well in those roles, so why change it when it's working and we're winning? He's the manager, not the fans on Twatter who think they can do a better job of picking the team without seeing the players in training all week.

It's tedious, isn't it?

I bet Neville and co. feel their noses have been put out of joint, though, so there's at least a silver lining

Totally tedious ... & I live 4 miles away.

The whole fecking town is OTT with it after decades of "well, I support {input Premier team of your choice} but I do think of Wrexham as my second club".

They get 10,000 currently but the whole bloody place shuts down. No idea why.

A new M&S 'Just Food' opened at the weekend & it's fckg plastered with Wrexham FC stuff.

TV docs do promote the club though. Burnley had one, Chelsea and Palace had docs about apprentices and there have been others e.g. Macclesfield/Robbie Savage.

Our story - and our comeback from the edge of oblivion is more interesting than all of them. Which reminds me, am I being paranoid or does the BBC still refuse to talk about BWFC? Watched FA Cup second round highlights on BBC Player and they banged on about other crap games but we got less than 15 seconds which consisted of "Interesting fact: Bodvarsson is the only Icelander to have scored 2 hat tricks in the FA Cup".

The EFL show is no better.

I suspect they don't give much of a fuck either way

Surely this is what football should be about?

The ability of a football team to galvanise the town and community.

I think it’s wonderful.

I'm all for seeing how far those two can take Wrexham, they're good blokes, and Wrexham been shit for long enough, so why not 

Pleased for Parky too

Was it always that or am I stuck in the matrix version of 1977 ? 

Always been like that. If you think about it you are onside or offside at the time the ball is played, So as long as you are not in front of the passer as the ball is released you are onside. 
 

Even with the new rules about a player being 'active' so flag goes up when you get the ball it is the moment of the pass that counts.

Aye 

But when the Hollywood actors took over, did they ever dream of getting through to the next round of the Bristol Motors cup and the next round as a dream tie

I hate Wrexham. Horrible place with horrible fans. However they are what modern football is. Shirt sales in the US etc will be massive now because of their documentary and celebrity owners. 
 

football is lost how we know it.
