    Your Squads for Next Season

    With the business end of the season approaching, it's time to see who'll stay and who'll go for next season. For Crewe: GOALKEEPERS: William Jaaskelainen: UNDER CONTRACT (2022) - Had some time out of the side after a string of poor performances over Christmas but will more than likely be our...

    RIP Christian Mbulu

    Absolutely tragic news to see former Crewe defender and current Morecambe defender Christian Mbulu has passed away at the age of 23. Absolutely no age to go at all. Though his spell with us was only brief, he was a great lad who seemed very grateful for the opportunity to play for us when we...

    Athletic Article: League One and Two Seasons to be abandoned next week

    Matt Slater, a journalist for the Athletic, has published a story this morning saying that the League 1 and League 2 seasons are set to be abandoned within the next few days. For now, the Premier League and Championship will continue. But I assume the National League are also about to act...

    EFL Proposing Salary Caps

    So the Daily Mail have reported today that hard salary caps are on the table for all three divisions. It's widely expected that Leagues 1 and 2 are unanimously in favour of them whilst the Championship clubs are doing their best to resist a hard cap of £20 million. I think they'll end up with...

    Players who were wasted talents

    I was in the pub the other day and met a lad from Cardiff and we were chatting football. I always remembered a Welsh centre half (Darcy Blake) having Rooney in his pocket at Wembley and wondered what became of him. Turns out he loved the ale (and other extra curricular activities related to that...

    The BIGGEST Game of the League 2 Season so far - Crewe vs Exeter

    The top 2 go head to head on Saturday at Gresty Road in what should be a bigger gate than usual with Exeter bringing a bigger following than usual as well to us. I'm not sure what to think of this at all. Very similar sides with a blend of youth and experience. And whilst we've lost Perry Ng to...

    Is this the best domestic season in recent years?

    Genuine three way title race in the Premier League, genuine Top 4 tussle between Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea, a mad scramble for a Europa League spot (if 7th does indeed get a spot), genuine relegation battle involving 6 teams (Palace, Brighton, Newcastle, Burnley, Cardiff, Southampton) which...

    The Welsh Marches Line Derby - Newport vs Crewe

    Top of the table Crewe (still doesn't seem right) travel across the border to Wales to face Newport at Rodney Parade on Saturday. From the outside looking in, it appears Newport are significantly weaker up top compared to last season and are now missing their enforcer in Joss Labadie who always...

    Welcome Bury

    A big welcome to the Shakers upon their relegation, we'll be welcoming 3 other unfortunate sods from League One in the coming weeks with MK Dons and Northampton likely to be two of the other unfortunates. Once again went for boom, and have received sod all but bust. Ryan Lowe tore into Bury's...

    Crewe vs Chesterfield

    So we welcome Chesterfield to Gresty Road again after a season-long hiatus. Gary Caldwell's side have only won 3 in their last 25 games I believe, 2 of which came against likely relegation candidates Port Vale both this season and last season. Despite having one of the better squads in the...

    THE (Revived) RELEASE LIST - Summer 2017

    Bringing back the release list thread from it's unprecedented demise last night. Under contract at Crewe: Ben Garratt (2019) James Jones (2018) Chris Dagnall (2018) George Cooper (2018) Zoumana Bakayogo (2018) (May still leave as the player and not Artell triggered the extension) Daniel Udoh...

    The Ben Nugent Superclasico - Yeovil vs Crewe

    Ben Nugent, Ajay Leitch-Smith, Gary Roberts, Joel Grant, Efe Sodje, Luke Rodgers, Anthony Tonkin... Quite a few ex-Crewe players have turned out for Yeovil since they became a Football League club in 2003, but this is perhaps the biggest meeting between the two clubs so far due to the...

    Red Shift vs Robin Hood - (Crewe vs Notts County)

    The most famous works of literature from these two localities inspire the name of the title, and you could say Notts County are very much like Robin Hood whenever they play us at Gresty Road... 2002-03 - Notts win 3-0 2009-10 - Notts win 1-0 2012-13 - Notts win 2-1 2013-14 - Notts win 3-1...

    Clash of the Category 2 Academy Minnows - Crewe vs Colchester

    Bipolar Crewe host fellow relegated side from last season Colchester at Gresty Road. After handing out sustained beatings to Colchester, it's worth noting that they are unbeaten in 4 of their previous 5 visits to Gresty Road. The team that started at Crawley for us should remain the same bar...

    Welsh Marches Line Superclasico - Artell's Crewe vs Westley-less Newport

    Newport County make their first trip to Gresty Road since the 1987-88 season on Saturday and today they sacked Graham Westley and replaced him with Michael Flynn. Newport to most are all but down barring a miraculous run of form. It's a shame as I like the club, it's a great away day for me...

    The 135th edition of Hartlepool United vs Crewe Alexandra

    On Tuesday, Hartlepool are set to become our most-played opponents of all time as they nip one ahead of the 134 meetings we've had with our old friends Tranmere. With 63 wins for the Alex in this fixture, it's safe to say that we've beaten Hartlepool more times than any other club in the...

    Donkey Lashers vs Iron Horses - Blackpool vs Crewe

    A nice equine theme for this thread before our day out to the Fylde Coast. We go into this game after huge back to back wins over Grimsby and Wycombe have pulled us clear of the relegation scrap for now, Blackpool picked up a brilliant 4-1 win against Carlisle at Brunton Park and then suffered...

    Bowery and the Beast - Crewe vs Wycombe

    If Paul Hayes starts for Wycombe on Tuesday this will have already ruined my match thread title. Five-star Crewe will almost certainly be unchanged from the side that taught Grimsby a footballing lesson on Saturday. We will also be looking for revenge for the 5-1 humbling Wycombe dished out to...

    The League's form team vs 2 wins since mid-September (Thanks Davis)

    This Saturday marks our first trip to Exeter since 1991 and I reckon quite a few of our fans will be following us to tick this one off. Think our team will be - Garratt, Turton, Ray, Guthrie, Nugent, Cooper, Hollands, Jones, Kirk, Bowery, Dagnall even though I don't want Kirk starting but...

    The Dave Artell Experience Begins - Crewe vs Luton

    So long, farewell, au revoir, auf wiedersehen... Yes it's true. The Dull Davis reign of terror is over after many years of torture by watching the most stale brand of football on the planet. My first home game since our awful 1-0 home loss to Yeovil in October so I'm looking forward to this...
