Walsall Advertiser Column

Thursday 30th November 2017 - by Neil Ravenscroft

It was a wonderful atmosphere and a great result, with some great football at Bescot last week. Trouble is, it's the England Women's game I'm talking about. It's fantastic just how far the women's game has come in this country in the last few years and the quality of the performance was great to watch.

As for the Saddlers, of course, they managed to put together back to back wins for the first time this season thanks to some fantastic finishing against Fleetwood and, partly, to another Oztumer wonder strike at Wimbledon on Saturday.  What hasn't improved however is the toxic atmosphere both at the ground and on social media, with the Manager, the Secretary, the CEO and of course, the owner, all being targets to a greater or lesser extent.

That atmosphere didn't seem to improve much following the back to back wins and I'm beginning to wonder if there will be no improvement until the club manage to do some gesture that shows that their ambitions match those of the fans. A contract offer to Oztumer and an attempt to bring in some quality in the window (the loanees might be a good place to start, especially Wilson, Agyei and Ismail, assuming Roberts is beyond our means).

Lastly, congratulations to Kory Roberts on making League One 'team of the week' after Saturday's game. I don't think it will be his last.
