After only 16 games with the club Sean O’Driscoll and Walsall FC have parted company. This news is something I was expecting maybe at the end of the season, but not now.
Although it is not nice to hear of someone losing their job, I am actually really excited to see if it makes a change to the team’s attitude.
Yesterday’s performance was so poor. As I noted in my previous post Tom Bradshaw and Romaine Saywers did not play their usual standard football.
There has been a lot of talk on social media sites that O’Driscoll has been the one to affect the players passion on the pitch. It seemed on many occasions he did not make the right changes to the team and often left out fan favourite Rico Henry.
I must note that the one thing I will miss about O’Driscoll is his articulate written pre match column in the programme. Strangely I found his written word to be very motivational, but this obviously has not been able to transfer into the dressing room.
Hopefully our next match will feature a Saddlers who have revived their focus on gaining promotion.
