Wasn't sure if this was the best section to put this in, but just saw the news which Sadlerrad put in the shoutout box earlier that 3 Walsall fans were amongst the people who were killed in the recent terrorist attacks in Tunisia. It was sad watching the local news showing them all at the recent JPT final Walsall were involved with at Wembley. Hopefully the club do their bit in helping their families following these tragic events.

Just hearing a Wolves fan was also confirmed amongst the dead. Very sad news...

This is all very, very sad. I didn't know of any of them, nor recognise them but from what I gather they were frequent attending fans. Really drives it home when it's something close to your personal life. Terrible, senseless tragedy that has cost a family their lives. It's enough to make you sick.

I hope the team perform on the pitch whilst they have the best seat in the house this season.

If there's one thing that does bring a glimmer of a smile back to the face, it's the football family coming together on Facebook. Thousands of well wishes from football fans all over the world, as far as Australia, lots of Wolves fans paying commiserations. Football as a rivalry is put to a side when things such as this happen.

RIP lads (and the Wolves fans/rest of the victims)...you will be missed.

Shocking news, read about it today and that Owen lad deserves massive respect and sympathies of course. RIP to them.

RIP and thoughts are with the youngster who survived and saw his family murdered. Marc Albrighton has lost his mum in law too I believe, RIP to everyone murdered in this callous act. Sadly I could see it was likely after the attacks there in March and the whole thing makes me very angry and bitter. Two weeks ago I was on a beech abroad with my baby daughter and partner and you just can't picture how it happened, how it could happen. No one should go on holiday and never come back home. I hope also in time Tunisia can recover and the many thousands who's livelihoods are destroyed too in the wake of this.

You know I hear about these terror attacks and I am always appalled, but it has never really "hit" me, it just kinda became news. I wasn't really old enough to fully understand 911 or 7/7, so really this is the first one that has really shook me. It's hit very close to home. Seeing their picture from Wembley is just brutal, what a happy day for all Walsall fans and they were there to experience it with us. People who have grown up in the same area, walked down the same streets, grew up in the Black Country and West Midlands, walked passed at games without noticing them...

A very sad day for everyone, RIP to everyone who died.

R.I.P to those Saddlers and everyone who lost their lives. Always staggers me how twisted and sick humanity can be. Can't even imagine to believe what that poor kids go through right now.

I've seen a few going round Facebook, however this one in particular is heart warming from a Bristol City fan!

The out pouring from fans around the country has been brillant.

Went down to Bescot Monday evening..spent about an hour there reading as many messages as I could. So touching. So many other clubs paying their respects too. R.I.P fellow Saddlers and all who have lost their lives in Tunisia.

Terrible news, we found out today that a Watford fan was another one of the victims and it brings it so much closer to home, My thoughts are with everyone who has been affected by this horrible event.
