We can harp on about Bonser and the damage he did as much as we like, and I despised him for what he did, especially at the end, but we saw some players pull on the shirt for our club that wouldnt play for a Pomlette or Trivela owned Walsall FC if they owned the club for 70 years.
I have been so fortunate to have enjoyed some of those times. Especially under Graydon. In our current guise, I just don’t see how this would ever happen again.
Don’t get me wrong, the collapse we are witnessing is as much at the hands of Jeff as Pomlette and Trivela, but at the same time we cannot ignore we competed in the second tier of English professional football while he was our chairman.
In my opinion Bonser ran the club down and relegated us leaving us in a shocking position. Pomlett was well intentioned but completely out his depth. Trivia don’t seem to know what they are doing and their summer project seems to be a disaster. I do appreciate them sorting the ground out so we own it though.
Pomlett has been silent ( no fireside chats) since he sold the majority of his shares to Boycott.
Got to give him credit for choosing Trivela and reuniting the club with the freehold, they had a five year plan and got it done in less than two.
I think we’ll see LP step away as cochairman and resign from the board to enjoy his retirement. His job is done at Walsall FC. Thank you, Leigh.
We shouldn’t appreciate anything until we know the terms of that agreement. If you want you can buy my house?I’ll give you the mortgage and I’ll let you know the length in the future just keep paying yearly.
Pomlett and Trivela have made mistakes but I think they need to be criticised on their own terms and not compared to previous years. The club that Bonser handed over was not the same as the club that achieved the success. We were already on a downward spiral, which is why the leech took the opportunity to get out when he did. He’s gone off into the sunset with millions and left others to pick up the pieces.
