Oh no boys, I know this may be your first games as Walsall fans but I promise you that we will let you down every time.

Reckon you'll stay there, only Morecambe of the rest of us seem to be trying to catch you with any seriousness.
Before today I thought so too. We have been good since Jan. But as mentioned above they beat us and it's in their hands now.

Wouldn't mind Grimsby playing like that against them Tuesday though.

A draw will do for me, that will have us 5 behind Colchester with 5 left for us including a game in hand and would be looking a lot sweeter for us than recently.

They were gobbling up every cross we put in. Their centre backs won everything in the air. We were toothless in the sense that we kept trying and failing at the same thing and not trying a different approach. Maybe we don’t have the players to come up with something different which is something that needs addressed in the summer.
I think it was worse when we didn't have Zanzala and Patrick

Have to admit was surprised you took Patrick off. Always thought he was likely to create an opening while he was on and after that it gave us more confidence to try coming forward a bit.

Listening to DC interview sounds like we’ll be experimenting a bit more in the final four games with different players and formations.

Smash and grab but we’ve done that 3 or 4 times this season. Mullin did hit the post when it looked easier to score but a point would have been a fair result.

This is what this team is about. Grit and determination to grind out the results which I think will now see us promoted automatically.

+3 is always good but better when others slip up. I think 3 more points will do it given the fact Bolton and Morecambe play each other on Tuesday.

Well lump on for a nil-nil cause that is all I can see it being.

If you’d have been here earlier in the season, instead of coming out of the woodwork as soon as Bolton get into the top 3. You’d know that’s not the case!

I’m still in a bit of shock that we played so well today, especially against a team bang in form that we haven’t beaten for nearly 40 years.
It’s a funny old game.

Playoffs our only hope now. Those subs baffled me. Just got to try and get a couple of wins from the final 4 to generate some momentum to firstly get in the playoffs and secondly go into the playoffs with some sort of confidence.

I agree, especially about the subs.
That first half was dire. At least in the second half we hit the woodwork and actually forced the keeper into making a save. Good solid defensive performance the only positive for me.

What makes this result even worse is that Cheltenham and thingymyjigs both lost.

Well done to Grimsby and Morecambe this afternoon.........
We simply was not at the races today.


Looks like it could be a straight shoot out next week with Morecambe
We need Sarcevic to be back

Masi51 has two accounts.
Yep very suspicious, both start sentences with lower case and both don’t know how to use full stops either.
And both seem to not like you very much.

Our stats from today and I’m not exaggerating when I say that that’s more shots than we usually have in a Month:

Yeah although about 12 of them were in one move where Gilks just made save after save haha. We arguably had the most clear cut ones too missing 2 from 3 yards out. You definitely deserved it today. We haven’t been cut open like that since probably Port Vale in December

We really aren’t very good against teams who play 2 strikers that work hard and are physically dominant. We get bullied in those types of games like we did today. We don’t have an outball when we get pressed like that as our front guys aren’t very big. We need to sign a physical striker or tall wide man in the summer who can hold the ball up/win an aerial battle in games like that to get us up the pitch a bit quicker and beat the press. Your 2 were fantastic at it. Definitely need to sort that out next season whichever division we are in.

Also have to say that midfielder that scored the first goal was excellent all game.

If Colchester lose and Grimsby win their game in hand things could look very favourable for them...

Walsall haven't conceded many recently and we struggle for goals. Not feeling great about this one anymore, albeit we have hit the post and generally not started badly.
