    Usual crop of ex-players including Nigel Adkins and a shout out for Robbie Fowler (god help us).

    Seen talk of maybe trying to tempt Dave Challinor from Fylde come up on 1FF, which might be a better idea though tbh all I know is he's done OK at a well-backed team.

    Spawny win in Essex. All seemed to be going well, goal up and lion's share of possession first half but Braintree came out fired up second and could have had three, including having a pen saved, while we stuttered. Still, happy trip home.

    Very nervy start to yesterday's match with so may changes to the team due to injuries and a suspension but Sutton played a blinder of a game and Maynard was a different player compared to his last few performances. It's a pity that Jennings can't improve his game because he has no pace to track players but a win is a win and keeps us in touch with the top three teams.

    So losing against us was last straw for Braintree board and they've parted company with Jamie Day. Would have thought anyone would struggle with the departures they've had so seems a touch harsh.
    Apparently they let the grass grow for our game to impede our passing but I expect all it did.was make the feeble penalty easier for Sam to save.
    Barrow visit Saturday, that will give us a better idea of how we stand. Great points return so far but like last year not many real testers in the early fixtures.

    Mills looks doomed. Booed off vs Chester, issues a rallying call, gets beat 3-0 by Macclesfield.

    Team want him sacked, or a combination of them being genuinely poor and Macc on a roll?

    Fans more than team, and whilst they aren't as bad as results suggest there is little indication that Mills has an idea of how to change things.

    Frustrating nil nil home to Barrow, not that we deserved it but flashes where you could see us getting it together but couldn't force the goal. Annoying to be doing half Barrows work for them with half-arsed attempts to play it out from the back and slow to second ball in midfield.

    0-0 away to Daggers isn't bad, we'll take it, as they say.

    Was hoping you'd beat them. Didn't watch as strictly is on.

    Signed Dan Wishart from Sutton, pacy left-sided defender. Very pleased, don't recall him specifically but Sutton were a very tidy unit when they visited the New Lawn. He might slot right in away at.Shots tonight. Looking forward to it, they're going well but maybe vulnerable enough at the back to suit our style.

    Blimey. Started like a hurricane and two up in ten minutes, one of them looking maybe offside, then a Shots player apparently kicked Rhys Murphy off the ball and got a straight red. Two more before the break and strolling, which was what the second half became - one period of possession lasted seven minutes. Madly Shots had some good moments and if they hadn't been so slack in the opening few minutes and their lad lost his head might have been a different story, though we did have a few great moves ourselves.

    Looks like Micky Mellon for Tranmere.

    Huge embarrassment for Southport away at Solihull Moors on Tuesday. First, on arrival 'Port's away strip was said to clash with the Home teams colours, so 'Port had to play in the host's previous seasons away colours. Second, the match was televised on BT Sport, so 'Port's shirt sponsors were probably not pleased that they did not get the exposure they had paid for. Third, Port played abysmally and were deservedly walloped by the Silhillians 4-0. A performance that was so poor that the Moors' fans delighted in chanting 'You're not fit to wear our shirt'. Having circled the drain for years now, it seems that chairman Charlie's dream will come true and Port will be relegated back to the Conference North.

    Read about that, a genuinely funny chant at last! Southport didn't look that bad at ours, but their perennial managerial merry-go-round can't help.

    Well it definitely is Micky Mellon as the new manager and his first game will be the Wrexham derby on Saturday.

    Looks like a popular choice. Might have gone a bit wonky at Shrewsbury but he's shown he knows the way out of this league.
    Off to North Ferriby tomorrow to play a village side even smaller than ours. I do like a new ground.

    Off to a winning start but it took a big slice of luck with the first goal bouncing from Wrexham's goalie against the defender and across the line. Disappointed that there were so few Wrexham fans at the match but hopefully our TV jinx has been laid to rest.

    Great day out at Furby, tidy little ground and friendly people and a bit of a flattering scoreline. Lincoln slipping up helped but see Daggers got a late winner. Tranmere game had just finished by the time we got in their clubhouse.

    Yes he was behind the Kop goal and managed to get more cheers than some of the players

    McNamara finally steps down at York.

    And now Mills leaves Wrexham, wonder if he's in the frame for the York job? Relief for most at Wrexham I suppose, big job for whoever's coming in.

    It certainly comes with a lot of expectation and a fanbase whose default setting is "boo", but off the field that club is run better than it has been in living memory and the potential for growth is massive.

    Not before time...should have happened at least six months ago. Mills would be a popular choice. As someone posted on the comments on the local paper, a PE teacher from one of the locals schools would have been a more popular choice than McNamara staying.

    Read that Mills has applied. Seems quite a weird situation with McNamara hanging about despite being very unwanted.
