That Felt Better

Well, that was a surprise. Like many others voiced on social media early Saturday afternoon, I actually thought that starting line up was some sort of joke. 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 …

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 …

Cautious optimism

5 games in. Hardly enough to really warrant predictions for the rest of the season or to judge the squad just yet. That being said, cautious optimism is how I would describe my current mood. 3 points this weekend makes for a decent start, anything but and we would have probably been disappointed on the …

What. A. Game.

How about that?! The Saddlers fight back from 3 goals down to draw 3-3 with Bradford, Amadou Bakayoko with the 87th minute equaliser to steal a point from what looked like an impossible position. An odd first 45 minutes saw the lads go into the break 2-0 down. Bradford punishing some sloppy defending in the …

Points shared at Pompey

And it should have been all 3! For me that was the most impressive performance of the season. We maybe played better football in parts against Oldham but in many ways this was the best I have seen the Saddlers in this early stage of the season. Firstly the pressing. Especially for the first 20/25 minutes …

The Late Show, with Erhun Oztumer

Well, that’ll do. The saddlers come away from the Bescot with a much needed win against an Oldham side that came into the game needing a win just as much as we did. The first half was pretty dull, not much going on from either team and the way Oldham went ahead really summed up …
