Joe Edwards: 'We Need to Show the Manager & Club the Respect They Deserve'

Joe Edwards has admitted that the Saddlers' midweek defeat to Blackburn Rovers was simply not good enough.
Walsall vice captain Joe Edwards has issued a strong statement ahead of Saturday's League One clash with MK Dons and admitted that Saddlers supporters deserve better, and the recent midweek defeat to Blackburn Rovers was simply not good enough.

Joe, who was speaking via the Express & Star, said; "Blackburn was not good enough and the players need to own up and admit what happened. We are playing a men’s sport, in a men’s team - there are no excuses for how old you are or what type of person you are.

"We now need to show what we are about. We haven’t performed and rightly we are getting some stick. If anyone needs to get something off their chest, they need to go and speak to the manager and deal with it. It’s how football works, as men it’s how we need to work. We need to be brave enough to say what we think and then move on.

“We now need to show the manager and the club the respect they deserve by putting in a performance. And we have to do better for fans, they travelled a long way on a Tuesday and it wasn’t good enough."
