Think it’s something to do with the local Newport rascals being on tag and having a 5.15pm curfew.
Yes, that was my point. If he is a better player, it will not be because he has changed as a player but due to his environment.
Newport are currently in poor form. They scraped a draw at home against Exeter recently, despite Exeter having a player sent off after 8 mins and another on 45 mins.
They followed this up with a home defeat against FGR.
3-0 win tonight for The Saddlers.
Someone posted that it was to give the Newport players a chance to get back at a reasonable time, and to give both teams a bit more time to recover for saturday? but i can’t see a couple of hours being any great asset to be honest?
Me neither as long as we don’t have out Turkey Drummers chips and beans before kickoff we’ll be fine.
In the 60s the whole squad went to the Longhorn ( on a evening game ) and enjoyed a decent steak and chips before the game.
Win tonight and we’re 4pts off Newport, who are 8th - lose and it’s a 10pt gap and an early goodbye to this ‘meh’ season. If we don’t go for it then we know exactly what is expected in the final 17 games, and I won’t be paying £170 to watch it
@Belphegor comments like this are what I come on this forum for. Supporting Walsall is like a Viz comic sometimes and I love the satire and gallows humour.
If the cartoonists of Billy the Fish ever did a book on Walsall, I’d pay a lot of money for it!
I can just imagine Darrell Clarke in a sheepskin jacket full of Robbie Williams CDs with a face set in a permanent grimace like he’s taking a drag on a cigarette whilst staring directly into the sun. Tom Pope with his arm in plaster hiding a spanner in a boxing glove for corner kicks and Sinclair sat by the corner flag fishing like a garden gnome…
It gets me through these grey, grey days… it really does!
Roberts; White, Scarr, Sadler, Melbourne; Norman, Bates, Vincent, Osadebe, Gordon, Lavery
Substitutes: Rose; Leak, Perry, Sinclair, McDonald, Osei Yaw, Reid
At least they should be ■■■■ scared of Norman Bates
Wes McDonald dropped/ rested.
Not much from an attacking point to get to excited about.
Pulled a muscle doing all them stepovers.
So Flash for Wes and Alfie stepping in for the suspended Kinsella.
Perry on the bench but still no sign of Wright - or of Holden who was supposed to be coming back by the end of the month …
Plus of course the continued absence of Clarke and Sinclair.
Sinclair is on the bench.
A win would be nice here it’s much needed will settle the new manager and the fans a little if we can get all 3 at home this evening
Need my glasses cleaning …
I wonder how he’s going to set that up? Osadebe owes us a performance tonight. He wouldn’t have been my pick.
Not bad.Only difference Osadebe for Wes, so slightly worse than you predicted.
Hmmmm I’m concerned again. Let’s see what happens but hmm.
