Outgoing Walsall caretaker boss Martin O’Connor told Radio WM that next season will be tough for the club and they need to start putting money where their mouths are.

Skip was on the Radio WM football phone in on Thursday and said the appointment of Darrell Clarke (which was confirmed on Friday) made sense but admitted that the club hadn’t been in touch with him since our relegation against Shrewsbury last Saturday.

O’Connor also feels that the clubs philosophy needs to change from top to bottom if the Saddlers are to challenge next season.

O’Connor said

“I’ve not spoken to anyone from the club since Saturday”

“They need to change the clubs philosophy from top to bottom”

“Knowing the club as I do, the club needs a structure to produce their own but that isn’t happening at the minute and it needs looking at.”

“Club need to put money where their mouths are, but that ain’t going to happen. It will be a tough season for them next season.”

Its disgusting to think that despite our relegation Skip gave everything to the cause and the Saddlers would have been relegated long before Saturday if Skip hadn’t taken over.

The club could have at least acknowledged his service.


One Reply to “It Will Be A Tough Season For Walsall”

  • Walsall started to slide after dean smith left missed out by 1 point to burton on getting promotion to the championship did not turn up for two play of games against Barnsley players left at the end of the season. Then a poor season under Witney if it wasn’t for oztumers goals I think we would have been relegated Great start under Keats last season then after about 7 games performances started to get worse the game were we played our best football and should have won against Barnsley at home probably was the final nail in the coffin for dean Keats , really did not get any better under Martin O’Connor except for the win against Peterborough. So let’s hope the walsall board will give Darrell Clarke some support so he can build a team with good players and we can start seeing good football again next season
