That's put the mockers right on it. I thought it was compulsory that Duke started the match thread.

Walsall 0 Southend 7.

Dave Bathurst permanently loses his voice after making all the goal announcements and sues the Club for £5m forcing us almost into Receivership. Bonser, being the upstanding businessman that he is, refuses to let this happen and offers to give us the money from the surplus in his pension fund thus leaving him in ruin with no retirement fund.

Everyone is happy, especially Geordie, and Dave Bathurst is very rich.

That's how I see it anyway. I'm hardly ever wrong. :wink:

Walsall 3-3 Southend

3-0 down at half time, Deeney comes on and scores a hat trick.


Seriously..

Walsall 0-2 Southend, a repeat of last year.

May as well roll a dice as attempt any form of reason to predict this one.

I'll go for a 1-1 draw - Gerrard for us.

Can't see anything other than a loss or draw, going for another 1-1.

4143 to dance the Fandango and then get preserved in Aspic.

To be fair, we may as well roll the dice on any Wfc game. I forgot this when making my predictions last week and got suckered into believing we would do something predictable. Never again will we feature in my predictions :wink: :( :D

We're on holiday so that will be four less people in attendance.

Saddlers 0-1 Shrimpers.

Kevin Betsy for them, obviously.

Attendance of 4,319 including 574 from Sarfend.

One less this week.

2-1 Southend. I dont think many teams will be reduced every week down to 10 men so an 11 man side will beat us.

Would anyone who's predicted a goal from Gerrard like to change their minds? :wink:

I'll go for an optimistic 1-1 with Jabo getting the goal. Can't help but think we'll probably end up conceding at least 2 though unless we sign someone tomorrow.

After the disappointing attendance at the Scunny game it will be interesting to see what the attendance will be the this week after another dose of "little Walsall" reality. One day the attendance will be the the sum of the season ticket holders and away fans.

How the other half see it... They look about as confident as we do and predict 2-1 to the Saddlers due to a combination of form, injury, suspension, not scoring and conceding.

1-1 for me.

We are currently worse than that brown stuff that rhymes with trap, so a heavy defeat is on the cards.

2-0 to the Sadds :D
