Last minute disaster for the Saddlers on Saturday as Crewe came back from 2-0 down to grab a point at Bescot. Mossa was there and had a bit of a rant on the message board:
Still fuming although I fully expected 2-2 when we stupidly let Crewe back into it at the end of the first half. I just don’t understand how we can be so dominant for the first 30-35 mins of both halves and then suddenly let Crewe dominate the rest of each half. It is either because we think the job is done or we panic. Either way this is bad management and needs addressing but I’m not sure Deano has this ability. By now we know Deano’s strengths and weaknesses. What he does well he does very well but what he does bad he does very bad, I can’t see this changing. His subs yesterday were beyond belief. Featherstone was playing very well and has that calmness on the ball which we needed towards the end, why on earth did he take him off? I would have rather him have taken Flo off who despite clearly being IMO MOTM looked tired and was very quiet the last 20 mins. Taundry looked comfortable the first half but had an absolute shocker in the second half, giving the ball away all the time. I prefer Purkiss to be honest, i dont see what he has done wrong to be dropped.
Knowing Walsall I wouldn’t be surprised if we get something at Sheff UTD, similar to last season we seem to be doing better against the better teams. Very frustrating club to follow and on another point why oh why have we still not got another striker yet at least on loan, we desperately need a target man type, nearly every club in this division has one. He doesn’t necessarily have to start either but like yesterday would have been ideal to bring on and hold up the ball rather than bringing on Bowerman who barely touched the ball.Rant over for now.
