Thanks for giving it a go Mr. Little

Well, there we have it. On Saturday, 27 September 2008, Brian Little parted company with Wrexham FC by 'mutual consent'. Many fans saw this coming, and are 100% behind this decision. I however, could see it on the horizon, but I didn't think, nor did I agree with it, being so soon.

Mr. Moss had awarded Little with a two-year contract, which he servered what, 11 games of? I know that Little was given the chance to build a squad, and some may say that he was given ample time for this, but I'm not so sure that this was the right way to go. I would have liked to have seen Little given until early January to turn things around. It could have been so easy as well, a couple of wins, and we can be right back up there.

Today's one all draw, was a step in the right direction, I suppose, but there was some talk (including a comment made by Martin Foyle) that the team that played against Torquay was the team that Little was planning on playing. Interesting that a departed managers' team selection would still be used...if true? 

The Torquay game still wasn't good enough, but I'll certainly take a point. We looked more like a unit, but still looked shakey at the back. A direct ball over the top would leave our defenders in a fair amount of trouble. The midfield still looked rather 'iffy', and the strikers worked fairly hard to their credit. Their is much work still to be done, and it's going to take time. But I can't see the Wrexham Faithful being happy with Carey and Foyle at the helm. WHat's needed in my opinion is a total backroom clear-out. This is our chance for a fresh start.

Now that's not to say that I believe that Carey deserves to go. He's been a loyal servant to the club, and I believe that he is 100% Wrexham through and through. But maybe it's time for fresh blood?

I'd like to personally thank Brian Little for his efforts with Wrexham, it's not an easy job, and certainly not one that I would ever want! I just hope that your time at Wrexham hasn't ended your managerial career early. I wish you all the luck in the future Brian, in whatever you do.
