Welcome to Hell

I don't want to admit it, but sticking your head in the sand doesn't get you anywhere: Wrexham are the basketcase of the Conference.

Okay, we're not in the relegation zone (yet!), but no other club can honestly be said to be performing as far beneath their expectations as we are.

After losing to Gateshead tonight we've achieved something fairly remarkable. You can tolerate losng to sides who are much smaller than you every now and then; that's what makes football exciting. However, Gateshead join a long list of clubs who have registered their first win over us in the last couple of seasons. Gateshead, Grays, Hayes and Yeading, Histon, Eastbourne, Tamworth, Altrincham, Crawley, Stevenage.

I don't want to belittle any of those teams, some of which are plainly better than us at the moment. But still, it's not a pretty list, is it? It certainly reflects pretty effectively where we are at the moment.

Anyone who argues this isn't the low point of the club's history, on the pitch at least, is crazy.

What must concern Dean Saunders is that all those defeats bar one came under his stewardship. Only the loss to Grays didn't happen on his watch; Brian Little was manager then, and that defeat pretty much did for him. He clearly didn't have such a charmed life as his successor.
