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 … Continue reading This feels like last season

With a fair few out with knocks and minor injuries paired with the dropping of in form Kory Roberts, I was almost certain that Whitney had shot himself … Continue reading That Felt Better
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 … Continue reading The Lucky Break
