West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Carlos Corberan - New Head Coach

Guys don’t stress he’s going nowhere.

I’ve had a tenner on him going to Everton so pretty much guarantees that he’s staying put  ;D

Couple of people on the Twitter (presume fans) saying the protests are shameful as some kids and elderly have been caught up in the protests, with at least two tweets describing it as a “crush”.

Let’s hope it’s just emotions and overreaction rather than people getting hurt.

So no new signings in Jan then!  ;D

Not surprised one but to be honest. We’re on a slippery slope now

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: West Brom seek loan from MSD Holdings
« on: December 28, 2022, 08:59:41 PM »
Firstly, if he was going to repay the loan this week they would have announced it alongside this news to make it more palatable.

Second, if it’s to cover the clubs working cost, why get such a big loan, why not get enough for the first year and pay it back in 12 months and go again if needed?

Is money being taken out of the club?

I suggest people start either organising a mass protest or starting a phoenix club because (to me at least) this could well be the beginning of the end of the Albion.

I don’t have a clue what this loan means but reading various things it doesn’t look good.

Not a lot we can do as fans unfortunately, and the mainstream media won’t give two hoots either.

Since covid I’ve really distanced myself from the emotion of following the Albion and that has done wonders for my mental health (another subject for another day), so I’m no where as angry/upset by this as I would have been a few years ago.

Wolves get another kind draw in the league cup quarter final, avoiding Man City, Man Utd and Newcastle. They play Nottingham Forest. 

Really hope they don't make the final.

Anything that takes their attention from their relegation battle is fine by me (as long as they don’t win it of course)  ;D

We all need to be careful about what we think and say with all this as I don't think this board need hassle of sorting out legal issues as a result of someone's "opinion" (not directing it at anyone just don't want anyone getting needless hassle).

That being said, I'd be surprised if this "investigation" finds any legal wrong doing on either side and does smack of placating the minor shareholders (at least in the short term).

Regardless of your opinion of Jeremy Peace and his handling of our club, he left it in a much better position than when he took over, everything else is up for debate.

The other fact is that the current owner (as it stands) has a club that is not at the level it was when he took over, again everything else is up for debate.

Ultimately, i don't think anything will come of it and it'll be interesting to see if any of the loan gets repaid in the coming weeks/months.

Well it’s early days but we may just get out of this mess.

A win against stoke next week and we’re out of the bottom three with effectively a midseason preseason for him to drill the players.

It’s about time we had a bit of a new manager bounce and hopefully for once we’ve actually picked the right guy and the right time wether by luck or something else!

Chuffed tonight!

You obviously don't understand betting odds. 11/1 is absolutely huge odds for a team that is bottom of the table. To put it in perspective, the teams that are bottom of the other 3 divisions are priced at 8/15 (Forest), 10/11 (Burton), and 15/8 (Colchester). By pricing us at 11/1 the bookies are saying that it is very unlikely indeed (less than a 10% chance) that we will go down. These odds are very good if you really think we will go down. You should lump on, though personally I think you will lose your money.

No I understand how it works which is why I’ve put some money on it.  There is no way it’s a ten percent chance of relegation. I’d say we’re closer to 60 at this point and it’s more likely we drop than stop up but that’s just my view hence why I think the odds are crazy.

We look very much like Wolves a few years ago when they dropped.

No direction, no plan, no passion etc.

Wolves managed to stop the rot in league one, I fear we won’t be able to.

Pessimistic I know, but there is so much wrong with the club and it’s been like it for years and only now are we seeing the results.

JP got out at the right time didn’t he, maybe he saw what was around the corner?

Now 11/1 to get relegated now. Think people are starting to realise how much trouble were in as club

Glad we’ve moved away from the usual dinosaur types (even if I did vote for Dyche  ;D ).

Still have my reservations about the club as a whole but that’s for another day.

Best of luck and hopefully with a bit of luck we’ll be playing wolves next season!

Corberan travelling from Leeds to Birmingham to sign for @wba for 2 1/2 years

No wonder it’s taking so long for him to sign if it’s taking 2 and half years. Blimey is he crawling?  ;D

They're waiting on something bigger in the news so they can hide the appointment of Warnock on a 5 year contract  ;D

Just had £20 on us to go down. We were 50/1 at the beginning of the season now around 20/1.

Will cushion the inevitable crushing feeling when we are relegated.

If Neil Lennon turned up at Albion, that would be me finished with the club, absolutely vile creature.

I agree, add John Terry to that list.

I've been saying it years but the club is rotten. If we don't go down this season we will have been very lucky. Perhaps we need a bit of time in League one to reset? Worked for Wolves?

But more seriously, this appointment is more about the team the new manager brings in rather than the manager himself. We've got no footballing people at the club and that is the worry. You can't just keep changing managers without looking at the real problem.

As long as Gourlay is here (and to some extent Lai) we are always going to be fighting to survive rather than fighting for promotion.

Yes, I’ve already said to a Plymouth follower that knowing us we’ll end up with Ralph or Michael!

The Plymouth fans I know praise him
Highly and he sounds the exact manager we should be going for. They’d be gutted to lose him so there’s really no better endorsement than that.

My concern is that he may be a fantastic appointment however unless he has a proper structure around him it won’t work and he’ll become another “failed manager”.

I hope he insists that he brings his whole team with him if that’s the case as the club have got no real football knowledge at the club currently.

I am sure there will be a race to secure his services very soon. Hopefully we will be in pole position......


I’m sure there’s a joke about Grand Prix there somewhere  :P

Just went to put a bet on him at 20/1 in the time it’s took to input my card details it’s changed to 6/4 so some money going on him now it seems.

On twitter a few people saying we're about to have new owners, ha have no idea if it's true and it's to do with the article in the daily mail yesterday regarding fairway trust in Jersey 🤷

I very much think it’s wishful thinking.

Maybe JP has come back for another go?   ;D

Edit: just had a look on twitter, it’s not coming from any reliable sources yet and the only thing that has actually been said is there is some movement at the top of the business. Could just well be the owner getting his house in order for a sale or he’s fed up with how the club is run and wanting to change thing up, who knows.

There was all that talk with things being set up in Jersey recently.

Genuinely do not think it is possible to have someone worse in charge than Bruce. Southgate maybe.

Any other manager would at least tick one box, whether it's getting the players fit, tactical organisation, some sort of game plan.

WBA are pleased to announce Neil Warnock as their next manager.  ;D

In a small piece of good news Roy Keane has dismissed speculation linking him to the job as "absolute rubbish"

Log's on tomorrow to find a picture of him on the officiall website holding a scalf looking miserable  ;D

Sadly, this season is about making sure we don't drop into league 1. We don't need any brave or untried managers/head coaches  we need a proven, steady the ship, can build a togetherness type person who likes long term projects.

For that reason it's got to be Sean Dyche (as much as that it pains me to say it).

Sadly, it'll end up being John Terry.

Been a busy morning and just found out he's been let go by my Villa manager.

I am shocked as I thought they'd stick with him, so that's a good thing... right?  ;D

It needed to happen but i have no faith the club will get the next appointment right, sadly.
