Luck’s run out?

After a spirited run of 7 points from an available 9 against Bradford, Burton and Fleetwood, Walsall fall to Portsmouth and Sunderland in back to back defeats, leaving us the wrong side of the dreaded dotted line separating the bottom four from the rest. Until now, the threat of relegation did not seem quite so […]

2017/18 Player Ratings!

Player Review 17/18 After what has been a season to forget, the last 7 days have been quite memorable. With late drama in our final home game against Northampton ensuring George Dobson’s name will go down in Saddlers folklore, the Saddlers needed just one point from the remaining 2 games to ensure survival. A Tuesday […]

On Reflection: Better late than never…

Walsall have finally parted company with Jon Whitney. Better late than never as they say. There have been a few opportunities throughout this season that I think were an ‘ideal time’ to send Jon on his way and those were missed. But after the PR nightmare of last week and a defeat to Salop on […]

Dobson Returns – Mixed Fan Reaction

George Dobson returns to the Saddlers from Sparta Rotterdam on a 2 and a half year deal. On a personal level, I think this is a good signing by the Saddlers. Whilst Dobson is not likely to be the player that gives us the attacking penetration and goals we so desperately need to win games, […]

That Felt Better

Well, that was a surprise. Like many others voiced on social media early Saturday afternoon, I actually thought that starting line up was some sort of joke. With a fair few out with knocks and minor injuries paired with the dropping of in form Kory Roberts, I was almost certain that Whitney had shot himself […]

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 […]

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 […]
