Some little changes
 
For context to my comments you can read [url]https://wrexhamfan.wordpress.com/2019/05/04/we-go-again/[/url]

I think this is a thoughtful and honest appraisal of the season. Its not easy to see what we would do differently with the same players, but I think there are two changes we could make for next season and maintain continuity.

Mark Carrington is our best rightback. He doesn't always play there, or anywhere, because of his utility to the matchday squad. I think we should release him from the utility role and play him as first choice rightback next season. Roberts is a very good deputy, who can also fill in at centreback.

Paul Rutherford is a very good central midfielder, and probably a better option in midfield than Carrington because of his extra pace. We need to solve the attacking midfielder issue with a new player, but Rutherford can be utilised off the bench to fill this role.

Have you thought it may be an idea to wait for the retained list as we've done this over about 2 million times .

Roberts a good centre back ?Did you see Harrogate home ?
Rutherford 1 goal and only assists against bottom half sides.
Both are honest professionals but not what we need if we are serious about trying to finally gain promotion.

I'd like us to sign a right back with more pace than Carrington (although I'd keep Carrington as a useful utility back up) but if we started the season with him as RB I have no doubt he'd do OK.

I'd release Roberts and keep Kennedy, personally.

I'd also release Rutherford. Thank him for his efforts but we need someone with a better final ball.

I've been despairing of the negativity on here but even I think the article in the OP is taking rose coloured glasses a bit far!

In other words he wants to carry on playing as we are with the same incompetent players.

The same incompetent players who had us top for large parts of the season and narrowly lost a play off game?

I know people are dissapointed but let's maintain a bit of perspective. I agree with that article for the most part, although I think the changes needed in the summer need to be a little bit more than the author is advocating. We need a new approach and the whole squad needs freshening up. But the bones of a successful sides are there.

The defence is solid, unfortunately that’s all it is. Playing a holding midfielder allows for the RB and LB to bomb forward by dropping deep and filling the gap, but without attacking full backs we just end up with an 5 man defence with limited attacking width so therefore have to go through the middle. This makes it very easy to defend against with limited chances for any striker we bring in up top, whether it be Oswell, Beavon or even Rowe if we did sign him...our offensive issue start at the back.

When do we think the retained list will be out?

Brian’s still reading all of our posts, only then will a sensible decision be made

Roberts surely not
Rutherford probably , but not for me
