Great signing in my opinion. Has a lot of experience and will probably go straight into the starting 11 for walsall.

He certainly has experience, same age as Lewie.

Hopefully his experience and leadership can guide our younger players and give them a push. Hopefully we are the right fit for him too and he can enjoy his time here.

Good luck elliot

Paul Downing is one of the first names on the Blackburn team sheet, yet he was hated here.

Just because a player doesn't perform well for a particular club, doesn't mean they are a bad player. Ward has the experience that we need and the height to pose a threat at corners.

I had a twitter discussion with a Blackburn fan who said Downing had been superb - assured on the ball and made very little mistakes - I do think sometimes different managers can give different players the added confidence that s needed !!

A shame he isn't still here. I thought he did a good job for Neilson.

I'm pleased that we've got an experienced right-footed CB. With Cisse, Tymon and Lewie, if we'd got Galloway instead if Ward we'd have to have picked Wootton or Landell for balance.
Yes Wards not rated at parent club. But we were unlikely to get an experienced loan CB that was a first choice elsewhere.

He has two assists this year, both against us!

Look he's better than EEL. An injured Walsh is better than EEL.
