Hi guys, thought id drop in and give my thoughts on Saturday’s game.
Was in a confident mood a few weeks back but now alittle subdued. We are still a good 4 maybe 5 players short, including a main striker target who should of been with us now. The loan deal to bring Marc McNulty from Reading is all agreed but we need EFL clearance due to a transfer embargo at their end. Pretty frustrating. We’ve had other targets to bring in but Mellon seems determined to get McNulty over the line. He had him on loan at Dundee Utd last season. Looks a player and scored 23 for Coventry at this level 3-4 years ago, but just hope he’s worth the wait.
It pretty much means we have little threat upfront Saturday. 5 strikers on the books but either young lads, unproven FL striker, and the big lad from Salford who’s goal record is awful.
Also Glatzel from Liverpool on loan. Still a young lad though and not sure how he will do. Highly rated at the Reds though.
My prediction? Either a 0-0, or 1-0 either way. Probably more likely a 1-0 Walsall victory. If we score Saturday it’s likely to be a header off a set piece (probably Peter Clarke) or one of our midfielders putting one in from 25 yards.
Players to watch out for from us? Ryan Watson looks a talent signed from Northampton, midfielder. Cogley at right back looks a player, signed from Birmingham and Chris Merrie from Wigan, centre mid. Although he might have to fill in at left back again with our two regulars there out injured.
Can see us having a slow start to the season but then picking up and finishing fairly strong.
Who should i look out for from your lads?
Give me a shout if you need any advice on trains, getting to the ground or pubs etc.
