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 [...]

Predictably Poor

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 [...]

Picking the Positives…well, trying to

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 [...]
