    Well we made the very stupid decision to announce Rory Gaffney on a season long loan from Salford as our ‘marquee’ signing. The striker we have been waiting for, for a month or so apparently. We have some thick fans who have done nothing but abuse it, however, that is some very meh PR by us...

    Walsall v Grimsby

    Unacceptably bad defeat. Not long before it turns sour for DC now. I’m all for him, but 6 wins in 36, a decent budget and this is what we are producing, patience is already thin on the ground. 2 quality forwards in before Tuesday, or I fear for the conference.

    Walsall v Grimsby

    If Grimsby score they win. We look very tight at the back and teams tend to do nothing against us, but score from penalties, the odd set piece or an unforced error. The problem is going forward, we have absolutely nothing and start every single game with effectively 8 defenders/defensive players...

    Tuesday night games

    2 conceded and 2 scored in 4 games. Newport not conceded in 5 hours and are draw specialists. 0-0 was about the most predictable thing in history. We missed the better of few chances, Dan Scarr has to put the header away from a corner, unmarked 6 yards out, centre of the goal, but he stuck it...

    Crewe Vs Walsall

    One of the worst standard of all round games in general and performances from us I can remember. Just such a lack of quality. I’m sure League 2 never used to be this bad. The goal should never have stood and Crewe’s counter attack chances probably don’t exist at 0-0. Cast iron 0-0 sort of...

    Crewe Vs Walsall

    One of the most boring halves in living memory. Terrible from both sides. Why on earth we are suddenly hoofing it to 5ft6 midgets is beyond me. Kiersey has been terrible, Sinclair anonymous. Gordon tried hard but he’s poor. Adebayo and hardy on please.

    Crewe Vs Walsall

    Lavery gets a start, well deserved. Can’t believe DC had dropped Adebayo to the bench and left Gordon in. Kiersey and Jules in the starting XI though? Can only think that’s down to players not being 100%. Jules was horrendous on Tuesday in his 1st appearance for the club and Kiersay hasn’t made...

    94 Crawley in a gate of around 2,400 at the Bescot.

    How is cook going on? Good for a goal, shame he looks like he’s stuck in cement then has the audacity to moan at those around him for not gift wrapping tap-ins to him.

    I had a look into IPTV about 6 months ago and as far as I could see iFollow wasn’t part of it, certainly not for every club. It’s a good idea though.

    Mr Eubank which VPN is worth using? iFollow blocked the commonly used UK VPN’s.

    That would be ideal, I think we are a natural goalscoring centre forward off becoming a threat to the play-offs. 15 players through the door and we look a little blunt upfront, so it’s a transitional phase. We do have an excellent manager with experience at this level and he has bought in a few...

    5205 at Walsall Saturday with 270 from Forest Green. That won’t mean much to any non Walsall fans but that represents a good growth in home attendance. Last season for a League 1 fixture our opening attendance was 5,700 with 1700 from Plymouth. Bonser selling up, a new chairman that will put...

    Walsall v FGR

    Well, 1 defensive mistake when Clarke should have just booted the ball out of play has cost us 3 points there. FGR’s philosophy was admirable, but with the conditions and the keeper looking very nervous, it played into our hands. We should have been out of sight before FGR really got near our...

    Gaffney would be a solid signing, capable of getting goals at this level I would have thought. We need 1 more striker and then I can see us doing okay this season. The spine of the side is very solid for a league 2 team on our budget. The main thing though is that we have an excellent manager...

    He kind of feels a little bit like one of those signings that will just ‘fit in’ somewhere, his goals to games started ratio is decent in fairness. But you have to ask why Peterborough or Doncaster didn’t sign him after trials this summer and also why he’s only been loaned out consistently...

    We are signing Caolan Lavery shortly. Not sure what to think, on paper it’s pretty meh.
