2017/18 Player Ratings!

Player Review 17/18 After what has been a season to forget, the last 7 days have been quite memorable. With late drama in our final home game against Northampton ensuring George Dobson’s name will go down in Saddlers folklore, the Saddlers needed just one point from the remaining 2 games to ensure survival. A Tuesday […]

On Reflection: Better late than never…

Walsall have finally parted company with Jon Whitney. Better late than never as they say. There have been a few opportunities throughout this season that I think were an ‘ideal time’ to send Jon on his way and those were missed. But after the PR nightmare of last week and a defeat to Salop on […]

Dobson Returns – Mixed Fan Reaction

George Dobson returns to the Saddlers from Sparta Rotterdam on a 2 and a half year deal. On a personal level, I think this is a good signing by the Saddlers. Whilst Dobson is not likely to be the player that gives us the attacking penetration and goals we so desperately need to win games, […]

The Lucky Break

So the international break is over and it is time again for league 1 football. As one of those who didn’t travel to Newport (thank god) and also choosing to boycott the Check-a-wank trophy, it seems like an absolute age since I have watched the saddlers. The international break came at the perfect time for […]

Where have the bastards gone?

It wasn’t too long ago our opponents fans were crying about what tough men we were. Post Portsmouth I almost believed Whitney when he droned on about the passion, desire and commitment he had instilled in this team, but he clearly can’t muster it from the players anymore…Where has that edge been in the last […]

Agony to Ecstacy

From feeling like we had been robbed at the death to celebrating a wonder strike- last nights encounter with Charlton was a highly entertaining affair to say the least. The game actually started very poorly for the Saddlers. Fresh off the back of our first away win in 9 months, I was expecting there to […]

Time for two up top?

In what turned out to be a pretty boring affair at the Bescot on Saturday the reds came away with a point against 2nd in the league Peterborough; which on considered reflection is not a bad point at all. I’m sure we ruined a few accumulators on Saturday with that result and we made one […]

A rotten night in Rotherham

Apologies for the delay. I was in far too foul a mood still on Wednesday evening to write an objective review of our performance on Tuesday night; I’ve had some time to calm down a bit now and also ‘enjoyed’ reading the wide range of opinions on social media following our battering at the hands […]
