Saddlers watch - Anything Walsall
« on: March 02, 2011, 10:47:51 AM »
Beat Southampton 1-0 last night and go 3 points clear of the relegation zone. Incredible turnaround they have had under Dean Smith. They looked completely dead and buried at Christmas.

I've got a lot of mates who are saddlers fans.  They always look for the Albion scores and they hate they Dingles.  I'm not speaking for all of their fans but I think in general they dont mind the Albion at all.

I would like them to stay up for sure.

Always try to keep an eye out for their results seeing as I live 5 mins from the Bescot. Incredible turnaround, as said before it looked like they were dead and buried before Christmas.

He has done a great job since hae came in, with Plymouth losing ten points they have an even better chance of stopping up.

3 points ahead of the relegation zone now although Swindon have a game in hand. Remarkable turn around considering they were about 9 points behind. Important for them they keep this run of decent form going.

A bit of a false position really. The bottom 3 have got a game in hand on them and D&R have got 4 games in hand on them whilst being only 3 points behind. Still in a lot of trouble but at least now they are keeping their side of the bargain.

Lost 2-0 last night at home to Leyton Orient. When you look at the games in hand some of the clubs around them off you feel they'll struggle.

Why are they a micky mouse club, just out of interest?

Just a regular smaller club, and I massively respect their fans as there are plenty of bigger clubs in the local area that they could choose to support instead, but they stick with the club they love.

Fair play to them, and if Albion went bust, I think I'd become a Super Saddler.

Cant understand the comments about them, their just another team around here like Kidderminster to me, nothing against them but I do respect people who follow them all round the country because they cant really have great away days with the amount they take away.

I really like walsall and often go to their home games as long as it doesn't conflict with the super baggies and really hope they can stay up. Had a couple of mates play for them as well and move on to better things so I always keep an eye out.

They've done incredible to get where they are after the situation they were in, but Hutchings went too late really. The damage has already been done, they blew the games against the teams around them which will cost them. Particularly with all the games in hand the teams around them have.

Still if they can get a win against Yeovil who knows.

I'm glad they stayed up. I always keep an eye on Walsall even though they are feeder club for the Vile.

I used to go to some home and away games with the saddlers as my best mate at the time was a big fan,
it was around the time when we had Alan Buckley taking us sideways and backwards and they had Chrissy Nichol who had just led them out of the 4th tier, at the time they had strikers Kyle Lightbourne and Martin O Conner.

That's right, did he go to Cov as well? I remember when Darren Bradley signed for Walsall, it was weird seeing him playing for them, their fans never really took to him at all.

Got a thread for our 4 local sides now.

Know a lot of people on this board that keep an eye out for Walsall, another one of us Midland sides who look in deep trouble this season, 5 games gone in that league and they are 3rd bottom without a win.

Also got a lot of ex WBA players in Downing, the Chambers brothers, Mantom & Sawyers.

Shame for them really. Had a few goalscorers in recent seasons and haven't been able to keep hold of them.

I quite like Dean Smith too.

Congratulations Walsall.

One step in Wembley.

Only £10 per adult ticket for the return leg at the Bescot. Now on general sale if anyone fancies that one. Think I may pick up a ticket myself.

Haven't been following them too closely. Remember that they did seem to get off to a very bad start to the season and were struggling badly around turn of September/October. Looking at table they seem to have shot up to comfortable mid-table. Must have had a decent run of form.
Believe they haven't ever had a game of Wembley. Really hope they go and do it.

Should be pretty easy to get one, they've got an initial allocation of 20k and they can have more if needed. For the FA Cup final you only get 25k!!

Quite a few Albion and Wolves going with more than a smattering of Viler's too apparently.

Well, Walsall are taking around 30k, so it won't be like our play-off final against Port Vale!
Bloody hell didn't realise that. I bet they would love a third of the 30k to go for their home games.

Wonder how many of them will be Walsall supporters though.
Quite a few Albion and Wolves going with more than a smattering of Viler's too apparently.
Could be interesting.

I'll be amongst them :P

I'm going with two other WBA friends and I know 6 dingles that are going along with 2 villa fans.

Not heard of any Bluenoses going though.

Sawyers was a big disappointment. However, if Pulis was watching, I reckon he'd have loved that 6'5" Flint.

According to reports today Dean Smith had talks with Brentford last night and is due to be announced as their new manager later today. What a big blow that is to Walsall. I'll give the guy credit much like Gary Rowett he is doing a terrific job with minimum resources at his disposal. I can't help but feel if this does happen walsalls promotion push will hit a brick wall sadly.

Thats a shame for the Saddlers. I hope they get someone in who's half decent.
Knowing them Chrisy Nicol will fill in in the interim. Megson would be great for them.

He needs to better himself to be honest he had a job for life almost at Walsall.

Walsall will miss him both as a manager and the role he did for the club as a whole.

Megson would be a nightmare.

They're a team of footballers at Walsall, not 6ft bullies.

Thats true, however would still be funny. Someone shouted Mickey Mellon, him and  Neil Cutler duo would be another Albion blast from the 90s

Been meaning to post this since last Saturday. Did anyone else see Merson talking about his time managing Walsall on Soccer Saturday?

He basically said he only used to get out of his seat to send instructions onto the pitch to keep the supporters sitting near him happy. Seems he would only bother doing it if the opposition manger did it, as if he didn't the fans thought he wasn't working.

Then he went on to say that they " don't have a brain between them."

Nice to know he has such regard for the fans who pay his wages.

TBH, Mersons opinions are hardly likely to worry anyone are they?

Your point about his lack of respect for those paying his wages, demonstrates more about his own intelligence than it says about the fans.

You're spot on of course, it just annoyed me that he felt he could say it on national TV with no concern about being pulled up for it. I was also cheesed off that the othe plums on the panel all laughed when he said it. Seemed a popular view.

Relegated to League Two after 12 years in League One.

The heavy defeat in 2003 with Merson running the show seems a long time ago!

Jorge Leitao tipped to take over as next Manager.
