We can’t defend, have naff all creativity and don’t score goals - we are going to be relegated!

We lost at home, to a team who were sitting the relegation places, and had 10 men for the last 20 mins - it doesn't look good no matter how Whitney tries to dress it up with guff about a good performance.

Now 1 point off the bottom 4, and we could potentially be in it come 9:45 Tuesday night.

Now Now Girls, its no good insulting me just because I have a different opinion to you and a more positive attitude. I am just as disappointed with the result today as you are, especially as we clearly had all of the play.

You just can't wait to throw insults at anyone who sticks up for Whitney in any way at all.

After the Doncaster result you happy clappers went in on us lot. Stop trying to pull the sympathy card and just admit you’re wrong about JW. Stop being so stubborn about it. Your optimism is admirable at times but you’re looking like a lunatic now. You’re going to lose your bet. Cash out now

I don't recall insulting anyone after the Doncaster result Scott. As far as you lot and us lot that's a load of rubbish we are all supposed to be Saddlers supporters but with different opinions. It's easy for people to throw insults at me after a result like today against a rubbish team with ten men. The fact is that it is probably the best we have played all season but I am just as aware as anyone else that we should be winning games like this.

If I was sticking up for anyone after the result today I could understand the comments but for people to wait and see what the result was today before throwing insults about my previous comments is pathetic. In fact I do believe that you said that you thought we would win today.

Sympathy card??? Whats all that about?? Trust me I don't need anybody's sympathy.

Not true. There was a general - oh look, let's make a reasonable judgement based on new information - same happened after Oxford.

Oh come off it. There was a load of “told you so’s” directed at me on here and other social media platforms after that game. Loads of sarcastic comments aimed at me which I stupidly responded to. Anyone with half a brain cell could see this from a mile off.

Facebook LOL.

When people genuinely claim that we should be beating Shrewsbury and Charlton, wait for it 'because we're Walsall' and that none of the top six will probably be there at the end of the season, then yes there's going to be some comeback ... :wink:

Psychological projection - a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.

Not necessarily being offended, perhaps just being irritated enough to rise to the bait of any and every morsel that's tossed into the collective pool. You also stated that you'd never post again ... perhaps you were offended then or were being lettuce-like. Perhaps not.

Anyway, you've just accused the site of being full of lettuces, to which I've taken the opportunity to introduce a pun (with obvious wink), something you've ignored or missed and then sought to correct a perceived provocation. It's not really an attack though is it? More of a casual and fairly playful tease.

Well, if you were to respond with a pun I'd have replied with a pun back or made a joke. It wasn't a pun but a saying with a definitive meaning which is why I responded the way I did. I wasn't rude or aggresive. It was just a simple reply. Not difficult to work out is it really is it :lol: I have never been offended by anything said on here. The only thing that offends me is double denim. Who in there right mind would wear such an abomination!! :x

Without wishing to part-take in the kind of tit for tit 'bantz' that has over-populated the site in recent weeks ... It kind of is difficult to work out what the chuff you're going on about here. You were reasonably rude to suggest that 'the site is full of lettuces', to which there was a fairly playful reply, from which we have garnered some of kind of ultra-defensive gash. You're definately not offended, which I believe, so let's just leave here ...
