Clarke Leaves With Saddlers Sat in 11th

Walsall will head into tomorrow’s fixture with Cheltenham town under the leadership of Brian Dutton who has now been appointed head coach. The news has not had the hugest of reactions from the Saddlers faithful all things considered. There had been a small but vocal Clarke out contingent who clearly have had enough of ”Drawsall” …

A New Era. [Part 1]

What a week for this football club. A day that I certainly didn’t think I would see in the near future, or even the distant future. Mr. Bonser is no longer the majority shareholder of Walsall Football Club. Director Leigh Pomlett becoming the club’s majority shareholder and chairman. The news has brought a tear to …

Finish As You Started

Two absolutely huge games over the bank holiday weekend. If we want to give ourselves a fighting chance of survival, I fancy that we really need to win them both. When is the last time we won two league games back to back you ask?… August. In fact, we didn’t lose a single league game …

Luck’s run out?

After a spirited run of 7 points from an available 9 against Bradford, Burton and Fleetwood, Walsall fall to Portsmouth and Sunderland in back to back defeats, leaving us the wrong side of the dreaded dotted line separating the bottom four from the rest. Until now, the threat of relegation did not seem quite so …

This feels like last season

The last time I updated this blog was August 22nd 2018. I wrote; ““ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!’’ Pace, passing, possession, aggression, composure- I truly was being entertained by a Walsall team. That has not happened for a long time. Just like Maximus in that scene, I felt like Walsall FC almost had a disdain for …

Seeing is Believing

Last night was a night of firsts for me. Not only did I get to come home from work, fire the laptop up and watch Walsall away ‘on the tele’ thanks to iFollow, but I actually got to see our first team play this season. For numerous reasons I have not been able to attend …

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, …
