In February, Michael Flynn took over the reins at Walsall after leaving his role as manager at Newport County. He was previously a player at Newport and spent four spells on the backroom staff before taking the reins at Walsall. Flynn has been working in a new environment since taking over the club, with new playing staff and new ownership. However, he is hoping to revitalise the club and bring back the club to the Championship.
Flynn’s first game in charge at Walsall
Michael Flynn’s first game in charge of Walsall is likely to be a mixed affair. The manager is looking to create a cohesive atmosphere and treat the players with respect. The team has won back-to-back games, following a tricky run of nine games without a win. In the summer, the club brought in 19 new signings, but the recent form has been disappointing.
On Saturday, FGR will host fellow West Midlands outfit Walsall. It is their last home game of the month, and the new manager, Michael Flynn, replaces Matt Taylor. Flynn is an experienced footballer, and he has played for Newport County, Derby County, where he earned a total of 117 caps.
Players’ reaction to defeat by Leyton Orient
After a poor start to the season, Leyton Orient improved towards the end of the season and eventually ended their run of defeats. They beat non-league side Droylsden 8-2 in the FA Cup second round replay. Although Orient were 2-0 down at the interval, they went on to score six goals in extra time. The team also defeated high-flying Championship side Norwich City 1-0 at Carrow Road. In the fourth round, they will face Swansea City.
After conceding the second goal, the players appear shell-shocked. However, they have plenty of time to recover. There were some poor defensive errors from Orient and they were guilty of letting James take advantage of the space between them and the goal. The defenders were also sloppy and allowed space for Charlie Kelman to score. On the other hand, debutant Jacob Jones made a positive impact, despite playing left wing-back.

Improvement since taking over
In February 2022, Michael Flynn was appointed as the new manager of Walsall Football Club. He had previously managed Newport County, where he had a successful four-and-a-half-year spell. Flynn has made a big impact on Walsall since taking over. The club has been unbeaten in five games, making three clean sheets in the process. However, Flynn still wants his team to improve in the final third.
The first step is for Flynn to treat his players well and create a sense of togetherness among his squad. His team started the season with back-to-back victories, following a dreadful nine-game run without a win. Since then, the side has only won two of their last seven games, drawing two. But if Flynn wants to succeed in the long term, he needs to change the club’s culture.
Swindon Town host Walsall
Michael Flynn is hopeful of revitalising Walsall with a fresh new approach. The Welshman previously managed Newport County before taking over as Walsall manager in February. But his new job comes with a different set of challenges. For starters, the club has a new ownership and a new playing staff. There are also a number of new players.
Walsall have suffered several injuries to key players this season. Conor Wilkinson and Joss Labadie both underwent knee ligament surgery in April. It was thought that both players would be out of action for up to 12 months but their recovery is going well and Flynn is hopeful they will be back in action by the end of the year. But while there are no guarantees, Flynn is hopeful of revitalising Walsall’s season.
