Default Re: Wrexham AFC boss Bryan Hughes admits having a prolific striker could have been helpful

I also read this article as a message from the manager to the board that they should support his intention to address the striker issue.

I know Hughes was not everybody's choice as manager (including mine), but we should cut the guy some slack as he did a reasonable job during the run in with the resources he had available to him.

Agree. He is the manager and deserves time and resources to prove his worth. Could be painful and fail; but could also be the change in attitude we so badly need.

Agree with this not much he could do with the "tools" at his disposal when he got here.
Also needs to establish a pattern of play which creates chances for the strikers.

We haven’t had a prolific goalscorer for 25 years at this club, so why would we get one now? The Morrell season was a fluke. And before Bennett you have to go back to Rooster for a season or 2 and then to the likes of Whittle and McNeil in the 1970’s.
moult and Kayden Jackson were top class strikers both with potential to improve , so if we find one he will not be here long

I'm not sure he did a reasonable job. W finished pretty much as low as we'd been all season, then lost in the play offs at home to a team who finished way behind us, without even scoring a goal.

He was the wrong choice when we hired him and I don't see how sticking with a bad choice is helpful.

I agree with this. He will never be some people's cup.of tea as he hasn't got a proven track record and some of his media dealings betray a level of naivety, in particular this 'captain obvious'comment.

However if you actually look at his win record and take into account he was appointed off the back of 5 straight losses under Barrow and Newell, he had to contend with key injuries to Walker, Summerfield and lawlor and that he inherited a squad that wasnt his which he tried to get playing in a different way that proved beyond them, I feel hes earned our respect and trust to see how he delivers this season.

As for the playoffs essentially we were robbed v eastleigh. I agree we would likely have lost v Salford or Fylde but cant see any different outcome under Ricketts. I dont think the quality was there and Ricketts faced with the same injuries may not have done any better. Maybe he wouldn't have had the Barrow losing run but that's not Hughes'fault.

Stick with him. After the board's calamitous decision making in January god knows who they'd replace him with. Stuart Nicholson or Maheeta Malongo most probably.

Without the barrow losing run we would be in league 2 now.

What about the losing run Hughes had??

Why was it the January defeats and not any others? Were more points available for those games??
