Walsall go American in Other football issues Posted June 8 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.
