Good article Tim. Despite a bit of guess work regarding transfers (although in fairness there has been very little action to talk about), you seem to reflect the fans opinions (or at least mine) very ...

Trying to let a little time go by before commenting. First, yes we were lucky not to be at least two down early on. I don't think that was because Villa are a good side, but we were uncertain and all ...

A wingless 4-4-2 will not ses us far this season. We could not work it effectively last season. I was a bit shocked KJ went with it. No width and it reduced us as an attacking threat. I agree with bei...

I think that we all should get down on our knees and thank Kenny Jackett.He has found gems in the lower divisions that our previous managers did not.He has assembled at least six players who could pla...

Nothing about last nights game hinted at a halt in progression. We were very competitive against a Premier league team.... and should have won it!

It was a good match to wet the appetite for the forthcoming season! Crowd were fantastic too.

A guy I play footy with asked me about Bright Enobakchare because he recently played with him and said ...

Amidst my moments of dourness there shines a sparkle of humour, quality kidda very funny.

Take a bow.

Adebyhor and Berbatov - there was more effort in a British Leyland night shift !!!

I thought Dawson gave it 100% last season as a right back. But long term I would like to see a proper right back come in and allow Dawson to get his chance at cb.

My choice at the moment would be Da...

There's not a Morrison's around the corner. Its called competition.

And why does the picture above consist of all UKIP members (Google them) and not any of the local community?

bobwolf101

I can see their point though!

There is a supermarket just round the corner. Why open another one?

The other unwanted travesty and further unwanted development contrary to the local people which will be going ahead is easy the super mosque which will be "another dark day for democracy" councillor E...

Can't speak for last nights performance as I wasn't there but Henry for me is certainly Championship quality. Baring in mind how little he played last season I think him and Rajiv are enough to occupy...

Finchy

Agreed, Connor Coady was one of the stand out players for both teams. Looking forward to seeing him play throughout the season! Henry was terrible, his corners were very poor. One thing that stood ou...

Nice to have a manager who doesn't say stupid things, and even nicer to have a sensible, articulate young striker who doesn't feel the need to start every other sentence with 'obviously'.

Iceland and Poundstretcher could be on the move in Walsall

walsall town centre

Big firms such as Iceland, Gala Bingo and Poundstretcher could be forced to leave a Walsall retail park if plans go ahead to expand a town centre bus station.

Why don't they open up again the Pedestrianized section from Bradford Place to St Pauls Bus Station for Buses only. To Police it they could put camera's to fine cars, Taxi's & privite hire cars ...

Blackcountrybob

I agree entirely, this idea should be scrapped. I may be being cynical but is it the Council's plan to remove all free parking in Walsall so shoppers have to pay and use the council's own car parks?

...

Chr1s23

Can we also at this time look at the bus bays on the roads going to the West and South of the borough. With buses stopping directly on the road rather than just off it the speed of traffic is reduced ...

What's needed is quality city centre parking at a decent price - within the Ring Road or alongside it with footbridges running over. Maybe replace the indoor market building with a new, green multisto...

what we need in the Town Centre is high quality shops seven days of the week, not a market two or three days of the week for Fruit and Veg, Pots and Pans, rolls of cloth and under ware.

This is a very misleading article.

Your headline 'Hotel planned for Walsall town centre to boost tourism' makes it sound as though the council has got plans to build a hotel, which is not what is goi...

I'm not sure how occupied it currently is, but how about converting Townend House into a Hotel?

I think we may be getting caught up in some council type definitions here. I don't think Walsall has much of a "tourist trade". But there is potentially a need for people coming in for meetings etc st...
