SORRY’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH

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 […]

Leaving it Late

The reds left it late but finally we taste victory again. Though we scored in the 85th minute we could have easily been ahead after just 25 seconds. A cross from the left hand side evaded everyone and fell kindly to McCarthy at the back stick who’s driven shot rebounded off the far post only to […]

Spoils shared in Shrewsbury

Another lead thrown away and another 2 points dropped rather than 1 point gained. A frustrating afternoon for the boys in red and the nearly 1200 fans that made the short journey to Shrewsbury on Friday afternoon. Kieron Morris opened the scoring in the first half, sending the fans into rapturous celebrations and giving the […]

Saddlers on Social Media

Where do we draw the line? Many of you would have seen this week a tweet from Neil Etheridge basically calling out a fan for suggesting they would ‘cheer’ had they seen the incident that lead to him taking an injury this week. I tracked a lot of the different reactions from players, ex-players and more […]

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 […]

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 […]
