HE’S FINALLY DONE IT

He’s done it! It’s been a long time coming but we finally got to celebrate a Makris goal and it was a strike worthy of the wait. A lovely cross field ball was nodded down perfectly by Edwards and the Cypriot took a touch to control and another to volley into the roof of the …

Lackluster

Another home win for Bradford, hardly unexpected. We could have played our best football of the season at Valley Parade Saturday and still come away with a loss. Bradford have truly turned their home ground into a fortress and have not lost a league home game all season, so coming away empty handed probably hasn’t …

BUSY MONTH AHEAD – PART 2

It’s finally over! The international break has finished and we can start looking forward to domestic football once more. Last week I wrote BUSY MONTH AHEAD -PART 1 on the first three games of April, so today I will be focusing on the final four games of next month. My views and opinions will no …

Busy Month Ahead -Part 1

Seven games are all that remain now for the Saddlers. An accumulation of some very exciting games in April will see the Saddlers take on three local sides, including away days at Shrewsbury and Coventry. With nothing to play for next month I am going to try and take an optimistic look at April and …

Shrimpers end our season

In quite possibly the most Walsall way possible any final flicker of hope for the season dies as the Saddlers throw away a 2 goal lead in the final 30 minutes at Southend to come away empty handed. A few fans had commented heading into the game that it was time to think about next …

Frustrated by Fleetwood

There’s lots of things to be annoyed about in that game, but the result is not one of them. When you don’t test the opposition keeper at all in 90 minutes, how on earth are you expected to come away with a point, let alone 3. Fleetwood were everything Walsall needed to be in this …

Has that T.Watt ended our season?

I wrote a few weeks ago about the Magic 73, a detailed breakdown of how much we needed to push on in the final weeks to secure 6th place this season. With an ever pessimistic outlook I concluded that I felt the season may have faded away already. Since then, the Saddlers climbed to 8th place …

6 On The Spin

What a run. The saddlers find themselves heading into Charlton on Saturday having secured back to back wins this week at the Bescott, completing a run of 6 wins in 6 at home. Whilst I unfortunately couldn’t make it Tuesday night, the highlights and proceeding interviews seem to suggest it was the most comfortable of …

The Magic 73

That’s the amount of points I feel will get you into the play-offs this season. Coincidentally that’s exactly 10 wins  from where we are now, which is 12th… what a familiar feeling. Yet with just 14 games remaining I would be surprised if even the most optimistic of fan would assume we can grab 10 …

Misery at the Macron

After spending most of Saturday in the land of the pies (Wigan) before heading to the Macron stadium, it was perhaps fitting I was served a big slice of humble pie Saturday afternoon. As you’ll see from the Vlog (video below) I was quite optimistic when I woke up Saturday morning. With a spell of …
