We all want it, how do we effect it?
The club has been in decline for years and unless something dramatic happens or we get lucky; we are clearly headed to the abyss of non-league at worse or consistently in a 4th division relegation scrap at best.
This is clearly the responsibility of Pomlett, Gamble and Mole! They’ve been on the board for 30+ years between them and are now leading the club at its worse level in our history.
Whatever criteria you want to judge their performance by or excuse you want to make on their behalf, they have failed.
The little money we’ve had seems to have disappeared or invested badly. After a promising start to the transfer window, we didn’t make a permanent signing since the first week of July, our best players are loanees. The rest of the on-field issues are well documented on here and off the field it’s no better & again well documented, but basically we’re poor in most departments.
It’s painfully apparent that the club needs change, real genuine change if we are to continue as a league club and start enjoying life as Saddlers again.
But how to achieve it? Pomlett, Gamble & Mole ain’t going nowhere it seems and neither is the landlord. So what is our future?
As a group of supporters we have failed to organise ourselves successfully to effect change since SOS and Barry Blower, yes there have been pockets of unrest/protest. But these were short lived when they either fizzled out or the club tossed us a stale sausage roll which stopped them in their tracks.
Other clubs have effected change, other clubs have united under one clear goal, one voice, come together and got the change they wanted.
If we want change and a future then we need to get organised, get motivated and build a consistent campaign to effect it.
Whilst my preference would be a total change of ownership and new investment that they may be unrealistic. Perhaps simply change within, by applied pressure is a more realistic goal.
Anyway I’m throwing this out there as a positive thread, to generate ideas, to generate interest and support to effect change at the club I love. Because in my view we have a choice, we can continue to sit and watch our club decline or stay away or try and do something about it.
Unless the latter happens, I genuinely fear for our club.
