"I Feel Their Pain" - Michael Flynn Understands Fan Frustrations as Walsall's Winless Run Continues

Michael Flynn spoke to the media shortly after full-time.
Walsall suffered their latest in an increasing string of setbacks as Elliott Nevitt's stoppage-time winner saw visitors Tranmere Rovers take all three points on a Saturday afternoon to forget in WS1.

The Saddlers went into the game without a win in ten all-competition games and were looking to make better use of their fleeting opportunities in the final third, but, once again, were punished for a lack of cutting edge.

Nevitt, who came on for Paul Lewis early in the second half, was on hand to put the ball into the back of the net, just a few moments after Jacob Maddox had sliced an effort wide of goal at the other end.

MICHAEL FLYNN - WALSALL HEAD COACH
"I'm putting my life and soul into Walsall Football Club, and so is Wayne. We need a little bit more back from a few of the players."

Flynn, who has made no secret of his disappointment over recent weeks, once again shared his frustration as his team sits just four points off the relegation zone after ten league games.

Speaking to the media after the full-time whistle was greeted with a peppering of boos and jeers from the stands, Flynn insisted he understood the issues and wants to keep working hard in order to turn things around, he said; "I feel their pain.

"I'm putting my life and soul into Walsall Football Club, and so is Wayne. We need a little bit more back from a few of the players. I'm an experienced manager.

"I know what I'm doing. We're trying to build a team here that will get Walsall into the next division. It's not going to be done in one transfer window.

"We've got to be positive and know things will turn around because they will. But we do need a win."

Flynn went on to offer praise for his squad for keeping a level head whether they've won or lost with the former Newport County boss admitting he could do with a healthy dose of luck right about now.

He continued; "The players have been brilliant in terms of not getting too down or too high, in the early part of the season.

"I have just told them they're letting us down and letting the supporters down, because we can't keep saying it.

"Everybody knows you can't make that turnover of players in one transfer window and expect everything to gel straight away, but I am also conscious that you've got to give them something to be happy about as well.

"I am conscious of that. I'll work as hard as I can, day in day out, like I always do. Hopefully, we get a bit of luck and we start getting some wins on the board."

The boss then went on to admit the team simply hasn't been good enough in either box as goals continue to be conceded at one end and not scored at the other, he added on Tranmere's late winner; "I've said it for weeks, we weren't good enough in both boxes and we need to improve.

"We've had a chance to score and win the game. It gets cleared and then it's a throw-in, our throw-in, and two of our midfielders – Comley and Kinsella – switch off and let their runners go.

"Donervon then has a decision to make, whether to try to block the shot or stay with his man. Owen should have done better, the lad's the other side of Donervon and it's one-nil. It's a kick in the teeth, and we need to be better in both boxes."
