'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Bescot Beat: Who need's Sven?

Most of the attention this week will have been on Sven's return to english football with the 61-year-old becoming the director of football at Notts County on a five-year deal.

My opinion on the matter is that it can only end in tears for the L2 club. In a way I do hope that this appointment will do some good for the Magpies, but Sven will find it difficult in the basement division having no previous knowledge of the FL.

Personally, I would be happy as a Saddlers fan to have a new chairman at the club who has a lot of money to spend on new players but not a celeb who is looking to earn a quick buck and kick-start a career that will simply only prove successful as a PR excercise.

Back to things Walsall and our recent link to Lee Hughes was put to bed when he signed a two-year contract at Notts County to become Sven's first find of the summer (although I doubt it).

Winger Peter Till also signed a one-year contract after a successful trial, playing in the games against Rotherham and Wolves. Although for me, he still has a lot to do I think Till will prove to be a good signing for us with a bit of nurturing from Hutch and MOC.

Finally, congratulations to former Saddler Danny Fox after he completed his move SPL side Celtic, joining the Tony Mowbray regime at Celtic Park.

We need a chairman will financial oust, not so much a Russian billionaire, but someone who can pump enough money into the club to aid stability and leave some dosh for transfers
