The worst season that virtually all of us can remember is finally & thankfully over! With predictably a boring goalless draw that sums up the season, the clubs lack of ambition and our continued decline.
The only positive that I can find from this dismal season is that we have gotten through the pandemic and remain a solvent football club. Rather than dwell and dissect the season, I now hope and expect a decent summer off the pitch, that sees change and vision, that generates hope, that supports realistic expectation.
A run at the playoffs, whether we get in them or not, should be our minimum expectation next season; although I fear another lower mid table/relegation battle unless there is wholesale change and reasonable investment made.
This starts with the board, goes through the DoF/Coach, the players, the ticket office, the club shop, the atmosphere, the toilets, the catering etc… Being frank I just want to believe in the club, my club again!
I want to see goals, I want us to be hard to beat, I want to go into games expecting us to have a chance of winning, not apparently setting up for another draw, we had twenty of those this season. Blimey.
To achieve this we need change, real change and that doesn’t start in July, scraping round for players it starts NOW! Leigh you’ve have had long enough to think about this now, now is the time to make the difference, to pick this club of ours up from the bottom and drive it forward. We just want to see a glimpse of hope, ambition, professionalism and progress, deliver on this and we’ll back you and to be clear no-one is expecting miracles. We just want to enjoy being Walsall fans again.
But this has start NOW! Up the Saddlers! See you in August
