The Walsall summer revolving door is continuing to gather pace as Sam Mantom joins Anthony Forde, Romaine Sawyers, Milan Lalkovic, Paul Downing and Jason Demetriou in leaving the club.

Sam Mantom has today joined fellow League 1 side Scunthorpe on a three year deal.

Doubts still remain over whether Jordan Cook and Andy Taylor will sign new deals and with transfer bids being lodged for Rico Henry and Tom Bradshaw – we really have a mass exodus on or hands.

Have they become to accustomed to Dean Smiths nice approach and are now worried of Jon Whitney’s more aggressive nature or is it a case we offer peanuts and get what we deserve?

Come August we could be looking at just three of the eleven that started our last game remaining.

We need a sense of realism – this new side will not hit the ground running and we will expect mistakes. Think yhe dizzy heights we hit last season will be very hard to achieve and a year of stability and familiarisation will be required.
