Official Walsall F.C. Sites (8)

Official Club Site

Standard stuff for most pro clubs as produced by the premiumTV scheme - dry, fairly informative, non-controversial and full of adverts trying to part you from your money!  To view certain sections and to post on the forum, it is necessary to register.

Club On-line Shop

Get your credit and debit cards out to buy official club merchandise from this on-line shopping site.

Community Programme

A site dedicated to the school and community links built by the club and the programme operated by Mick Kearns and Adam Davy.

Conferencing & Banqueting Facilities

Site giving details and booking facilities for the conference and banquet facilities at Bescot Stadium plus a link to the neighbouring Park Inn hotel.  It's just a pity that the "thickos" in their marketing department haven't realised that Walsall is NOT in Birmingham!

Bescot Sunday Market

Details of the extremely popular Sunday market, staged around the Banks's Stadium, every week.

Saddlers Property Shop

A joint venture with PropertyQuest, a local estate and letting agent, to earn commision for the club.

Saddlers Holiday Club

Operated by Thomas Cook, offering discounts to Saddlers' fans.

G.M.I. Property Company

Not strictly a Walsall Football Club site but one of a company whose history, since the late 1980s, has been inextricably linked to that of the Saddlers, including the construction of Bescot Stadium, the Park Inn hotel and the appointment of Peter Gilman to the Walsall F.C. board of directors (strangely, not mentioned on the G.M.I. site).  It's just a pity that they can't spell 'Bescot'!

A full and informative site, operated by Steve Roy.

The newest site - looks well-produced but adds little in the way of new features - apart from a "Girls' Corner"!

Part of the SportNetwork group, as its name suggests. Last updated in March 2007 when administered then by David Penniall, a young fan from Cheslyn Hay.

Fans' Forums and Message Boards (13)

Banks's Talk

UTS - The biggest and most-used Walsall forum - by quite some margin.  It has far more regular users than all the other Walsall forums put together.  Sponsored by IC Shipping.

Colin Taylor Forum

One of its best features is the presence of several visiting fans from rival clubs.  May be read by anyone but registration is necessary in order to post.

Vital Walsall

Very smart and professional.  Whether it will make any inroads into the hold of the the existing forums, particularly UTS, remains to be seen.

Walsall Forum

May be read by anyone but registration is necessary in order to post.  Appears to be defunct, currently.

Fans' Personal Sites (10)

Pete's Walsall Portal

Remarkably, considering the distance, a very good archive site operated by ex-pat Saddlers fan, Pete Lee, in Hong Kong, China.

Walsall FC The Saddlers

Even more remarkable, a very professional site operated by a Swede, Pär Stener who, as yet, has not even seen the Saddlers play! (Fans of rival clubs would, no doubt, make the obvious comments!).

Phil's Photo Album

A splendid selection of photographs taken by Phil Burton (a.k.a. philthesaddler) at matches, both home and away.

Walsall's Past Managers

League Managers' Association site listing previous incumbents of the Saddlers' hot seat.  Reg(?) Shaw - should be Ray;  Billy(?) Moore - should be Bill.  Also, in the late 19th Century/early 20th Century, the team was selected by the Secretary & Committee rather than one individual.

Football Chants

A collection of supporters' chants, including a page for Walsall

Little Walsall Football Club

A section on the "Uncyclopedia" site giving a humorous take on the Saddlers - obviously written by a Dingle (Wolves fan).

A Foreign Perspective (3)

F.A. Cup tie v. Charlton Athletic (26/2/02)

A German site logging the visit of some German groundhoppers to the match at the Valley, which Walsall won 2-1 and which saw Colin Lee as manager for the first time.  They also visited a number of West Midlands grounds but somehow missed out on a visit to Bescot Stadium - no accounting for tastes!!! Although in German, it is mainly pictorial.

Japanese Site

Surely the strangest site of the lot - a record of the visit of a Japanese fan to the Walsall v. Norwich City game on 1st November 2003 (a game which saw Walsall's Paul Ritchie and Norwich's Peter Crouch sent off!).  The text is in Japanese.

Swedish Fans

A Walsall page on a site for Swedish fans of foreign clubs, thanks to Pär Stener (see above).  Warning - it is in Swedish!

MySpace Sites Featuring Past & Present Walsall F.C. Players

YouTube sites featuring the Saddlers (16)

To start it off - a selection of excellent clips by the Steven Spielberg of Bescot - "Magic Man Fan" of the UTS message board - and another selection from Linda Staines ("Kiansmom" of the same message board).

"Hairy Pete" has become something of a local legend with his self-penned songs, many of them highly derogatory about our local friends and rivals!

A short clip showing an enthusiastic Saddlers fan, without his drum, on this occasion.  Despite his obvious difficulties, he is harmless and means well.

Saddlers fans at Edgar Street, Hereford, with a rendition of "One Step Beyond", of which Madness would have been proud!  It also featured on the programme, Soccer-AM, on Sky TV.

From the same game, a rendition of "Minnie the Moocher".  Goodness knows what the late Cab Calloway would have thought of it!

A musical (?) question, posed at the above match.

En route to the above match, fans singing on the train.

Defunct Sites (Sites no longer maintained but still out there in cyberspace!) (9)

4-3-1-2 Walsall FC

Launched in August 2004, a very promising site.  The title (a "take-off" of 4-4-2) refers to the tactical formation employed by Saddlers' manager, Paul Merson, in August 2004.  Sadly, its Cannock-based administrator suspended updates as a protest against the brain-dead hooligan element at the F.A. cup tie at Slough on 13/11/04.
