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... Continue Reading →

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... Continue Reading →

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...

The Tale of Two Signings

Jason McCarthy our loanee player of the season has decided to leave Southampton to join Barnsley (for the mere price of £200k -rumoured). Jason played every minute for us in the league last season and bagged an impressive... Continue Reading →

Finally a new signing…a kit deal

In what's turning into one of the most boring off seasons I can remember for a long time, we finally make a new signing...a 3 year deal with errera to produce our kits. Though not the news of a new goalkeeper, defender, winger or striker which we are still in desperate need of, the news... Continue Reading →

Player Ratings 16/17

So with the season now at an end I thought I would rate the players on their performances through 16/17. As I write this every player is still a under contract at Walsall FC (or have been on loan, with the exception of Osbourne and CMac). I will only be rating players who made 10 appearances...

Final Thoughts – Saddlers season ends

Bittersweet. That's how I would describe the season coming to an end. Saturday afternoons at the Bescot are a place that brings my friends and family together. I attend games with people who have travelled from from Cambridge, Leeds, Wigan and Manchester, coppers and bar managers who decide to book holiday days to follow the... Continue Reading →


Apology not accepted Jon. (I've waited 24 hours before writing this to try and  calm down...it hasn't worked). The Saddlers come away having lost to soon-to-be 4th tier Coventry City in one of the worst (if not THE worst) performances of the season. After the boys drew with Charlton and then lost to Fleetwood in... Continue Reading →
