  1. Walsall fan here. Been interesting to see your take. Some interesting insight and thought. The positivity you see from us lot is really a glimmer of hope that this arrangement enables an escape from the stranglehold of paying an escalating rent bill which completely undermines our ability to compete. We’d have preferred our own “Carol” but Walsall, like Burslem, isn’t blessed with too many multi millionaires who love their local football club enough to give it a proper go. Trivela are saying all the right things. That’s quite easy. Fast forwarding 24 months would be very interesting. You feel it will go one way or another. Given our desperate decline over the last half decade most of us are happy to flip the coin just now. You’ll know the feeling and justifiably be feeling quite chuffed if not a little smug in how you have come through the other side of similar times. Fair play.
  2. Congratulations. Enjoy and savour. From a Walsall fan.
  3. Nah. We were rubbish. We’re not a very good side at all. We’re about where you were three years ago. Looking down rather than up. Which in part is why Darrell left us - we are a club in decline and he knew he couldn’t stop it, whereas you are a club on the up and therefore a better prospect for him. Fairs. Just hoping Taylor can create a foothold somewhere half way up/down this awful league before taking us forward. As you know - it’s a long road back when you’ve been managed poorly from the top to the bottom of the club. Well done on your win today. Small rot stopped. See you in April. 👍🏼
  4. Hello. I was told in no uncertain terms that what I thought was a fair and reasonable assessment wasn’t welcome on here. I listened to his post match as I said in my earlier contribution and he just about avoided naming names in the way he did when he was with us. The nuance of Darrell was still there though. He is very quick to say his players were rubbish and in the same breath says that he will definitely have a look at his own performance, decision making and tactics. The nuance being that his assessment of the players concluded but his assessment on himself to be done later. Next press conference nobody ever has the bottle to ask what his moment of analysis on his own performance revealed. Anyway, it doesn’t matter. You’re happy with him and we’re happy with his replacement at our place. We’re all happy. Which is lovely. ❤️
  5. Walsall fan here. We did what we needed to do to win a League Two football match away from home. After only a few minutes there was a sense that you didn’t quite fancy the battle. Some neat passing at times but that game was always going to be won and lost by who won individual battles through the middle of the pitch. Last night that was definitely us. On the back of winning those individual battles we created more chances and scored one of them. I was on here having the Clarke discussion when he first joined you. So won’t get too much back into that. But having lost a couple against poor to average sides in this league, his motivational style will either bring players with him or alienate them. He seemed to just about ensure his post match last night was a collective rollicking. I hope for your sake it stays that way as when the pressure comes on top our experience would be that the deflection and hanging individuals out to dry starts to increase. Personally, I hope you stay up and around the play off spots. I just hope that by the time we meet again, we’ve somehow joined you.
  6. Bitter Walsall fan here. First signing we’ve made this summer that has left us underwhelmed. Your comments suggests our whelm is right to be subterranean.
