Re: Gary Martin

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.

Re: Second Round Draw

Not being a doom merchant but I'll be surprised if we reach the 2nd round, reason being that historically lower league teams normally fail on their second bite of the cherry against a higher team. Cup shocks normally have to be done on the day or generally the chance has passed. There is a preceden...

Baldrick has a cunning plan which involves us signing a big CF who is also selected for one of these international sides that play on 20th Nov.

No match odds yet on Betfred or Skybet
That's my problem
I'll give you 1/2 Walsall, 7/2 the draw, and 5/1 Darlo.

The aftermath of the game has really exposed what an angry atmosphere there is at Hereford despite them being in the play-off positions.

It won't be us on TV anyway. It's a bad draw sadly. No glamour for sure, and i really don't fancy our chances for whatever reason. That said, i thought we'd contrive to lose to Leamington. So hopefully i'm wrong. It's a long trip as well.
