Don't forget, programmes will be on sale from the hut just inside the turnstiles, at a price of just £2. Now full colour, it includes a wealth of content, news, interviews and stats.

Any comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Typical, moaning and complaining but will you put your money where your mouth is and help the club? No.

Such a shame that certain people have their agendas and will knock the club at every opportunity and never lift a finger to help with the solutions

It was a joke.

I have helped out before now at the club. I was at ground in the pouring rain clearing the guttering out from the stands and clearing over twenty bags of rubbish for two days before the Walsall FACup game.

Not much in the context of what some do I know, but far more than others thats for sure.

And as for my hard earned money I will do exactly what I please with it. If I do ever help the club out with funds you would be the last to know.

Im off to B&Q. Laughing

You always come on here like a little girl squealing if anyone dares to make a comment that doesn't "toe the club line",it's absolutely pathetic.

I have no problem with you being super positive about everything the club does,if you're that easily pleased then that's your lookout.

What I do have a problem with ( and I've told you this before on here ) is the way you launch snide personal attacks on people who hold an opposing view.

There is simply no need for it,if you've got a problem tell the person to their face at tonight's match!

A far better performance from the one I saw against Nantwich,let's hope the run continues.browny made a difference when he came on but I do think we need another striker because we are light on that front especially on Saturdays.

Over all I thought it was a good performance. Bitterly disappointed not to come away with the three points that I thought we deserved.

We won the midfield battle and looked threatening going forward. I also thought we defended well down the middle, but we look sloppy when balls come in to the box from wide areas.

However we look much better than at the backend of last season.

Pick the negativity out of that.

For those of you who asked...
Surprisingly 'Paul' didnt make himself known. affraid

Thought we were the better team tonight, played some nice stuff at times and, but for the awful defending for their 2nd goal, looked much more solid than against Nantwich.

I think we'll do ok this season, but suspect it will be a case of win one, lose one, draw one if we don't tighten up at the back.

Overall a decent game, and a very good crowd, even if it was boosted by the Rushall 'Far side ultras' (3 people).

Things are looking better than they were, and much better than those on the wrong side of the viaduct : )

Again a decent performance, better than against Workington, probably should have won both. But should have lost it at the end tonight, brilliant save from Solly, one of several.

An exciting game overall and a very good crowd, only 54 short of the Worcester/Hednesford game I took in earlier in the day, Rushall are no mugs and I think we shaded it, good strike from Benbow, I suppose it was inevitable that would happen! our second goal was excellent with brilliant work from Tonks (who was impressive throughout) to win the ball and a great finish from Brown, disappointed we couldn't see it through.

But in terms of improvement from the second half of the last season, I am pleased with what I've seen so far, especially with the attacking play and players putting a shift in, defensively is clearly an area we need to improve on, but at least progress has been made, hopefully that will continue.

The goalkeeping situation is interesting, Solly is making himself very hard to drop from his performances in the last few games, although there have been stunning saves from both keepers, interesting with Coleman playing tonight as well, I've always thought that, on form, Solly was the better keeper and still surprised he didn't get his place back after his injury a couple of years ago, but that's water under the bridge.

Two very average teams in my opinion.

Another good display by Lewis in goal,back to his best and replicating the form he showed years ago,in my opinion he's still our number one keeper.

Chilton continues to impress,the guy covers a huge amount of ground,links the play well and chases every lost cause,the bloke is a manager's dream,he'd be first on my team sheet every week.

I thought Leon had an excellent first half,his "nous" in midfield put's him a cut above Canavan but once he was sacrificed to cover for Knight we lost our grip in midfield.

I was disappointed with Dodd tonight,he and Lait didn't offer enough,failing to beat their man and constantly losing the ball which resulted in poor service to Karl Hawley.

Tonks had a tidy game and Brown stretched them when he came on and took his goal well.

I'm in Aled's camp to be honest,i see nothing in this side that leads me to believe that anything more than mid table is a likely finishing position for us BUT if the bull is grabbed by the horns immediately and some quality is brought in at the back to tighten up a porus defence and a decent partner is acquired for Hawley i might yet be surprised.

A word on our opposition.

I'm a Baggie and a big Richard Sneekes fan ( as a player ) but they didn't impress me at all tonight and as for Benbow it was as always all about himself.A great goal aided by us backing off but overall you could see why he'll never make it much higher up the football pyramid.

A good, entertaining game with a draw being just about the right result.

At times, I thought Rushall played good football, reflecting their manager's style, and we have to thank Solly for producing some stunning saves.

But we also had our chances, with the woodwork saving them on several occasions.

A good team performance and a bit churlish to criticise but Dodd, although having a lot of the ball, could have been more productive. Lait, on the other wing, didn't have one of his better games. Good to see Green being more attack-minded and Harris's class was evident.

Our second goal was the best of the night with Tonks's through ball and Brown's professional finish giving what we all thought and hoped would be the winner. Alas, not to be !

Clearly a work in progress. To expect a virtually new team to click this early is never going to happen. However, there are positives. Midfield wise, I'd always play Louis. I've rated him since he signed for us and I still think we're a far superior team with him in it. Tonks was excellent yesterday. He gives us added bite in the middle and as was seen with the goal has an eye for a pass.

The defence is an issue however it's a virtually new back 4. We are a lot better off now than we were and we are atleast playing some fairly enjoyable football. We're also a lot better off than those lot down in Brum.
