Re: Walsall v Blackburn, Sat, 24 Feb 2018, KO 15:00

After he was pretty much forced out, yeah. And it still doesn't change the fact we're a weaker squad, nor that Danny Graham didn't replace Steele and Lowe as you seemed to suggest.... ;) I was making a general point about players. And the stats suggest we've been better off with Graham over Rhodes,...

Re: Walsall v Blackburn, Sat, 24 Feb 2018, KO 15:00

The 10 that Rhodes had already scored did more to save us than Graham's 7. And then we went down woth a season of Graham.

I know who I'd choose to have in my team.

But we still went down. Sounds like a luxury we can't afford to me.... :yeahright:

Re: Walsall v Blackburn, Sat, 24 Feb 2018, KO 15:00

I'm not sure how goals are a luxury..... If you don’t help to defend or hold the ball up properly you put your defence under pressure. For all his goals and ruddy’s we still didn’t even make the playoffs :shrug: As soon as his goals dried up in his last season for us he was not needed any more. We ...

Re: Walsall v Blackburn, Sat, 24 Feb 2018, KO 15:00

Perhaps he would have. He came close, but it still was a much poorer team than the season before, where Lambert did his best to dismantle things.

Except it wasn't onwards and upwards, it was onwards and downwards. :shrug:
But if we go up we are back in the same division but with a better squad. Upwards.
A better squad than when we went down, but not better than when we were sat outside the playoffs. Overall a poorer squad.

Re: Walsall v Blackburn, Sat, 24 Feb 2018, KO 15:00

He scored one goal in ten games whilst being asked to do a role he wasn't suited to. :shrug:

Poor management, not the quality of the player.

Re: Walsall v Blackburn, Sat, 24 Feb 2018, KO 15:00

Not as good as those whom we let go, and ultimately one of the contributing players to our relegation. :shrug: You're right I really wish we had Lowe and Steele instead of Graham :lol: Of course, Graham didn't replace a midfielder and a goalkeeper, though, both of whom remained with the club for a ...

Re: Walsall v Blackburn, Sat, 24 Feb 2018, KO 15:00

The squad/team we have now would beat our team from last season. Just need to keep progressing each season. If we go up add a few of the best league 1 players to the squad. Premier league players on loan and we would be fine in championship. It would yes, but our team last season was relegation fod...

Re: Walsall v Blackburn, Sat, 24 Feb 2018, KO 15:00

Can't we just be happy for now. Next season hopefully in the championship we can berate the players for how shite they are at a slightly higher level? Well to be fair Darth, you're generally pretty good at the berating.... ;) I just don't think there's a great deal to be celebrating that we're doin...
