Default Re: Akil Wright - almost amazing

I understand some of the criticism of Akil Wright. However in a team that finds it quite hard to score he does get into good positions to score. He could have won us the game at Aldershot but for a fantastic save. I only saw the chances on Saturday in the highlights. He made great contact with the first volley, the second came quickly on his weaker foot, and the third his standing leg slipped. He should have buried the last one. Akil is still young and he is one of only a few with the potential to go on and improve. He is an attacking player by instinct and At Barrow he played wide midfield. I have watched Wrexham warm up before games and the shooting practice has been pretty poor in the past. Unfortunately players do not get any chances to play reserve team games where they can Polish their finishing. Don't give up on Akil just yet.

Agree. Wish we would try him wide right in a 4-4-2.

Potential is there, anyone who can't see that is kidding themselves - needs polishing and time will tell if he kicks on.

What has he shown that makes you think he can skin a man and whip a good cross in?

Part of me says that if we never play Akil there we will never find out if he can beat a man. A few Barrow fans liked him there I think. It is a good point that he may not have the skills of a winger. I see him more as a strong runner on the counter attack and surely this would suit the current Wrexham who spend a lot of time defending. He got into 4 good positions against a poor team. He may still come good.

I have no idea why that would be an option.

I could see him physically getting the better of a full back, but I don't think there would be quality in the final ball.

Remember John Walters. Couldn't hit a barn door for us. He went on to have a good career I believe. However, there were stories that his daughter was ill at the time if I remember correctly. All I am saying is we cant wright the lad off yet. Yes he's missing chances but the most difficult one, the half volley in the turn (from memory) was saved by the keeper. If his chances go in, he wouldn't be here and people would moan then.
Yes there were some awful misses, however he seems to be getting in the right place.

Revert to Flynn’s proven 4-4-2 with just one out-and-out winger (but that requires us to either extend Tollitt’s loan or bring in someone else.

Wright is lost in the middle of the park but think he would do a job out wide.

If there's one thing he can do, it's to drive forward and skin a player. He played well on the wing on loan at Barrow apparently.

Here Here, could not put it any better, he,s a powerful unit gets up and down, gets into goal scoring positions i dont see any other player in our squad doing this, ill go one further i see yozzer getting the best out of him and expect a higher team coming in for him.
all he needs is a bit of composure, it will come no doubt.
