    Florent Cuvelier has been a rock in midfield for Walsall for pre season. Hopefully he will continue to provide more glory for the side before his loan comes to an end and he heads back to Stoke City.

    Player Of The Month
    "To Dream The Impossible Dream" - A Walsall FC Story-342439_231x264.jpg
    Febian Brandy has been a star striker when pairing with Will Grigg up front, but for the amount of goals he has scored he deserves the chance to be known as the player of the month, especially with his goals in both Capital One Cup matches that both got him the team through to the second round and nearly into the 3rd against Birmingham.
