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 of the Millers. First of all it is important to … Continue reading A rotten night in Rotherham
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 face of it, but with some people predicting us to … Continue reading Cautious optimism
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 middle of the park for the first and allowing a … Continue reading What. A. Game.
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 we were right on top of every single Pompey player … Continue reading Points shared at Pompey
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 the quality that had been on show. Despite our poor … Continue reading The Late Show, with Erhun Oztumer
Last week I wrote about trying to stay positive heading into the new season; it didn’t take long for that slight bit of optimism to be washed out of me. Like everyone and their dog has been saying for months, we don’t have enough width, our strikers aren’t scoring enough or even being given the opportunity to get in behind the opponents defence and our … Continue reading Predictably Poor
These last 12 months have been a bastard, there’s no point denying it. But despite everything that has gone on during the off-season, the boring Saturdays are finally over and competitive football is finally back, ideally I’d like to start the season without the crippling weight of despair that we have grown accustomed to in the last 3 months. Bury away to start the season … Continue reading Picking the Positives…well, trying to
