    I think it was one of those where Hiwula clipped the defenders heel, and the defender then tripped himself up.

    I don't think you could say he went down too easily, not much you can do to stay up in those situations

    Walsall really are so bad. It’s division two for them

    I like the free role Bright is being given but with his yellow I’d be tempted to change him at HT

    Need to ignore their attempts at winding us up.

    Ffs - how many times are they going to get away with shirt and arm pulling.
    It’s a bit rich that they’re feeling aggrieved

    Happy with that. Putting a chances away. The ball seemed like it was in the air for so long for bakas goal. Could picture the ball going into their fans

    Just needs somebody to put one on them. Let them know!

    Rotate the fouls.

    I doubt we’ve scored two at home in the first half often this season. Walsall I can’t believe will get back in the game - I think they’ve won 4 in 23 and two are against us - one thanks to bungling Burge

    Obviously throw it from the first row and fracture someone’s skull

    This is the chance to go at them and get more confidence. It will open up more second half

    Never mind shoring things up. Let’s go all out! Let’s see 90 minutes of good football instead of just 45(ish).

    Could even be a game for Chaplin to grab a goal, but that would mean a change in shape

    Lovely stuff so far. Withdraw Bright before he gets that second booking. This ref will dish it out at any opportunity.

    He gave him a final warning I think when he fouled after tracking back

    I'm checking the league table seeing how far we are of the playoffs like the hopeless idiot I am.

    (7 points with 2 games more played, 10 from the next on same games)

    Does anyone watching the game think that we could score again? Or think that Walsall have much of a chance of scoring?

    We are far superior without looking too dangerous as once again we overplay the ballat times when the easier option is put the ball in the box or shoot. When we did we scored and Kelly nearly scored.
    Having said that we look too good for them so hope M's does not sit back on that but continues the second half with the same approach. If we are doing well then 'd like to see Thomas rested and Westlake have a run out. Also Chaplin at some point to try and get himself a goal.
    Lets hope we don't sit back...

    It's not a foul you daft Tory twat. The defender just ran across him
    and went down

    We can definitely score again (and again, and again...).

    They’ve shown little desire to score and I doubt that’ll change.

    Can’t see Walsall staying up if they play like this every week.

    Think their number 9 having a good game and is a handful. Apart from that they are pretty poor and look there for the taking.
    Want mason to attack ball and cross rather than wait for it. Think Baka’s movement for the goal was excellent.
    Yes hiwula caught their player but the off ball incidents from them mean I have little sympathy.

    It was a clear foul - fans like you are a funny breed. If it was the other way round you’d scream foul and call the ref a c**t. If a former player scored and celebrated like Bakayoko you’d also be laying into him.

    I’m objective
