  1. Not sure what some people expected. But this is exactly what I was anticipating. First thing on the agenda had to be make us hard to beat. That seems to have started...and long may it continue. Well at least to the end of the season. hard to beat just about keeps us up I hope. The alternative is definite relegation. Well done crookes tonight with legg and smith. First time in a while we have looked like not getting done by one long ball over the top. The realism is this squad is cack. Last season covered a few cracks but normal play has been resumed. We have no real quality on anyw
  2. He started well and then seemed to wither with the rest of the team tbf. I think one of our big issues at the back is Browns lack of commanding presence. Our defenders have to win the ball else we are done. It’s been highlighted even more this season as neither of the centre halves have been commanding. Shame cause I love Scotty, he has been brilliant for us.
  3. True. May need a few seasons, after all it’s been about 5 seasons in the making! Not sure how anyone can’t be unhappy with this appointment. The bloke has 4 promotions on his cv. There were no realistic candidates with anywhere near that kind of success. Yes the Walsall forum doesn’t read well but sometimes circumstances dictate the outcome. There is obviously something more to it. He possibly just doesn’t fit in there. The bloke was trying to fill smiths shoes. Maybe their fans expectation against the reality is misaligned. We have plenty of fans who thought we would make
  4. This is now a better outcome than any of us had hoped for. Let’s get be behind it and pray that it works for all involved.
  5. This is spot on. Last year was the exception to the rule. This is the second season that the majority of this squad has delivered absolute dross. We finished well last season but I think that blinkered the view from the fact we were still very much a team in transition. The bulk of the squad is still the relegation material that Aspin assembled. This season should have seen replacements for brown, legg, Joyce and pope, with the aforementioned slowly becoming bit parts. But we signed none and are now massively at sea. We signed a load of nomads that no one wanted in mills, Fitzpatrick, whitehea
  6. The cost of not appointing a decent manager could be far greater...
  7. Agree but they are all more organised than us.
  8. We have a fitness issue all over the park. Never known a club to have so many hamstring injuries. It’s constant theme with us.
  9. Wind blowing the other way today...😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
  10. Been that way all season. Distinct lack of guts shown from the off.
  11. Not sure why anyone is surprised. Thankfully Grimsby and Southend should just about be worse than us but it will be a closely run race. We may score a few but our defence will shaft us every week.
  12. Certainly is. If we are doing well and you have decent-ish players in that position you can sometimes carry a player like him in the hope he gets over his injuries. Sadly with squad sizes and the reduction to 20 next season he is a risk to big to take.
  13. He will never play enough games consecutively to be fit enough to play that role. Or any for that matter.
  14. We are certainly carrying to many players. Mills, Fitz, whitehead plus the crocks Cullen, manny, monty add to that Robinson, mckirdy and increasingly likely legg de-registered it’s all to obvious that summers recruitment was god awful and we weren’t ruthless enough with our current lot. Personally, only monty would be here next season out of those above. And he would be the back up squad player because of his versatility. Harsh on Manny but the lad is another Walsh. Has some potential but will never play enough consecutive games.
  15. Fully agree. For me the one thing that has massively been lacking during this whole debacle is communication. Which is so uncharacteristic for Carol and the club as a whole under her stewardship. I understand and wouldn’t expect the club to tell us every detail of everything going on. But what a difference this one article makes to people’s sanity!
