Apparently Styche has left today "by mutual consent" Gone to Bromsgrove Sporting in the league below before any of our fans start to get nostalgic. Not nostalgic at all for Styche.

Pretty slim chance this game will go ahead, if not for the condition of the pitch then for the water levels in the surrounding areas.

I guess it'll depend how far Edgar Street is from the river, but the game must be in doubt especially if there is more rain before the weekend. HFC have opened their doors to act as a refuge for some of those affected. So no, Edgar street won't be under water. There will not be a problem getting th...

Talking of strikers, I bet Reece Styche was less than impressed by manager Russell Slade's comments after they lost 2-0 at the weekend when he said "Our problem is our lack of a 12-15 goal a season striker. We really need one". Fans don't like him much either. Worse than that, they now boo him when...

Surely its not pie in the sky that a new stadium could be funded - if Walsall can turnover circa 7 million per annum from an old tired stadium
Didn't look like a old tired stadium to me 6 weeks ago when we played there. It was built in 1990.

Fergie did that all the time.
