Just got back home after spending the following morning looking up old friends.
Cannot believe yesterday, I am hoarse, never shouted so much since the play off final or that massive 3-2 come back against Gillingham.
What a contrast with yesterdays performance when compared to the dire 5 defeats in a row that had been forced upon us all.
When Cookie got sent off and Bradford headed into an empty net within the regulation first 10 minutes we all thought ah well here we go again. But not so, we had ten men, some short on ability admitted, but my god they put in a performance of immense courage fight and determination. The bodies on the line stuff, and numerous magnificent saves from Roberts towards the end of the match as Bradford pressed forward their numerical advantage got the nerves gangling once again, it has seemed so long…Could MOC’s influence have been a catalyst to this improved desire and commitment?
Overall a magnificent wonderful day, when supporting the Saddlers became great again, not enjoyed a day at Bescot so much for a very long time, lets hope this is the start of a REAL fight to stave off relegation!
Only minus point, was to be told I was in someone’s seat five minutes after the game had started, as 3 young teenagers took their seats and spent the entire game rarely looking up whilst fiddling with their phones!
