can i just say hello , im new to this but im sure i might enjoy it , even tho im a blue nose i was born in walsall and i love the club - have a recent pic of dad for ya. .
Welcome to the board and to the club . Always good to have a new point of view.
as dad liked all the clubs he played for
but walsall he loved
then i thought id come on for a knock around .
They used to feed him on raw steaks when he played for us. (allegedly)
he told me horse meat with brown sauce , together with shirts with pre made sauce stains lol
Was a legend back in the day, you didn’t mess with Bernie. Not a bad player either, good to see he’s looking well after demolishing that dinner.
cheers m8 , all good - as tough as he thinks he is , he always had the soft spot for walsall , but im not really allowed to use words like soft so i best be careful .
Welcome to the board! Your father was/is a legend with Saddlers fans. I understand that he’s a bright fella … grammar school educated and County chess champion?
yes mate central grammer loads of o levels and all that , warwickshire chess champion he can tell you all the openings in latin lol
Bernie was a big favourite with those of us old enough to have seen him. You can tell him he isn’t forgotten and we remember him as a big part of what was a very attractive team to watch.
He’s looking healthy and happy in those pictures, he must be 68 or 69 at a guess, but he’s wearing it well.
yes m8 67/68 i think
s at the moment down to 50 miles a week in power walking and cycling so hes trying to ice off the injury
he`s got a bad ankle , so his idea is cycling while its bad , ? crazy fool if you ask me .
I believe he’s not keen on coming back for any events, but please tell him the fans who remember him would love to see him back. Even if it was just a wave to the crowd at half time.
i know its not his bag
i ask him about going but he dont wanna
but im working on him , cuz i know fans that would love to see him and have a few laughs
leave it with me fella , im grinding him down
Agree with what everybody else says - Walsall legend. Scored in the first game I ever saw as an 11 year old at Fellows Park - ball, keeper and Bernie all ended up in the back of the net! Would love to see him put in an appearance at Banks’s.
im working on him folks
leave it with me - im gonna stay on here now anyway and do the forum thing , im coming to games next year myself for a watch , ive given up the blues , proper dross once we sell bellingham im probably gonna knock it on the head for good, i dont go many games any how.
Me too. He’s getting on a bit, but would still be more effective up front than some of the clowns we’ve had recently like Parkin, Ngoo and Barrowman.
i will tell him that , he will laugh .
He was on the team when I started watching in the early 70’s. He was immense.
Had to laugh at the sauce comment. Remember it well
ive got loads of stuff i have , cant be spilling it all , dad would cry about it even tho id just knock him out if he did
