General Football & Sports / Re: Dingle watch - Anything Wolves
« on: Yesterday at 09:53:35 AM »
Age is irrelevant, Patricio is still better.

Jota is better than Phillips or Barnes or any of the others you mention. Jota will fetch upwards for £30m (providing he doesn't have a release clause) when he leaves Wolves.

Cavaliero is injury prone, jury is out on him. Costa the same but both very capable players and deserving of a spot in a PL team.

Boly was useless against £50m worth of striker, Hegazi looks scared stiff of second division plodders.

It's all well and good having confidence in our team but regurgitating S***e like this just makes us sound like every Wolves fan for the last decade when they kept saying they were better than us... guess what? They weren't.

'On paper' you may well be right.... but we all should know by now football games aren't played on paper.

Confidence, form etc play a massive part.

By looking at them they have a decent enough team, but the biggest issue is how they 'steamed' the championship and expected to do the same to the premier league..   seeing them come crashing back down to reality is nearly as satisfying as seeing us score 7 goals in a game.  ;D

I showed my partner the squad photo and told her that there was one player there who didn't want to be at the club and asked if she could guess who it is....

Lets just say she guessed correct.

Who did she guess? I'm struggling as there are about 10/11 people with straight faces that don't look happy....

Hegazi divides opinion but he's a good player. He's one of them that needs an organiser alongside him It;s Bartley that needs dropping. Hegazi alongside Dawson will look a different player.

Hegazi was caught out of position countless amount of times last season, a good majority that led to conceding a goal.

Bartley was also having a go at him against Bolton because he was out of position.

He did, with someone with short arms and long pockets. We’ve been conned into believing Lai was going to invest in the club and put us in a sound financial footing.

No we haven't, the club was sold and people got excited and assumed money would be thrown around.

He clearly stated he would continue to run the club how it has been run.

He does seem a bit oblivious to it mate but he needs to wake up quickly. Personally, i wouldn't want either of them playing but, at the very least they have to be broken up and it has to be Brunt that makes way, he is just woeful in CM, always has been always will be. Only place on the pitch he can play now is LB.

I'm hoping that Jones will start to take the lead tactically and leave DM to the man-management, with his first challenge being to tell Brunt he is dropped!

But he can't defend and is way too slow to keep up with other teams attackers....which then leaves the rest of the defence exposed.

This guy is a problem in centre midfield.  Please play him left back instead of Gibbs if we have to.  Until we get some legs in central midfield then we'll have problems getting promoted IMO.

He shouldn't be on the field at all, he he has is a left foot and he can't even use that anymore.

Love the guy and appreciate him massively, but when it's time, it's time... to improve we need to freshen up.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Season Tickets 18/19
« on: August 06, 2018, 02:39:25 PM »
I will keep you posted but the seat I wanted to switch to has been taken up overnight, so just playing a waiting game at the moment.

Has it been taken up by someone purchasing a season ticket or just a single ticket for the next game?

May be worth asking the ticket office and they could change yours now for it to come into effect the game after next.

I changed mine about 2 seasons ago, same stand so no extra charges etc and they just printed me a new card off with the new row and seat number.

For me Brunt should start and i'm fine with him starting centrally but only in a 4231

All he has is a left foot and couldn't even put a decent corner into the box. Wasn't happy, head dropped and picked up a card in the middle of the park because he was being a tit.. pretty embarrassing for someone of his experience.

Got mine about 10 this morning thought the game was kicking off at half past that many people there having said that the quality and the size against addidas is not good took my XL shirt from last year puma seem to be a size smaller

Nothing different with the sizes, puma tops are 'fitted', Adidas are not that's the only difference.

Personally I prefer puma with the fitted clothing, don't look like a bag of rags then.  :D

It was mentioned when we found out puma were our supplier that puma tops are 'fitted'.

Can't see why there is an issue with sizing.

Still no news than I thought the announcement was going to be on Monday ?

The club said it would be this week, not Monday.

We don't need it for another 6 days anyway so not sure why everyone's on meltdown when atleast 50% of the fan base will only moan and pick faults about it anyway when it's finally released. ;D

Last 5 games, scored 15 conceded 6, W4 D1 ..... whens big daves statue getting put up at the hawthorns?!

Quite refreshing to see, even against lower league teams in the most recent past under previous managers we have struggled and looked like we are the lower league team majority of the time.

Few years ago we were the only West Midlands premier league club and beginning to get established whilst the wolves and villa were being run by idiots.
A chance for us to push on spend, and create  a divide .

With the fosun group and mendes wolves have hit jackpot
Now it seems villa have been saved and not by anyone, the richest company in Egypt and richest Egyptian in the world.

And we have Lai. And only money we can spend is from selling what we have.
As I say, missed opportunity and can’t believe we’ve landed the owners we have compared with wolves and villa.

Not necessarily a few years ago... look at last year and how much has changed already.... also it's been mentioned more than once by Moore that we don't NEED to sell before we can buy....  it makes sense, no point buying another 3/4 wingers if we can't get rid of some of the ones we have.. that just means more players on our books picking up a wage for not playing which people would then also moan about.

Wolves have been promoted to a league we were in for a good few years, they've not done something special they have done something 3 teams do each season.... It's all good and well them making stupid money signings but if they do end up going back down they will be doomed and all their better players will be gone regardless.... they are spending amounts that should secure them atleast a mid table finish... if they finish in the bottom half next season they have been 'ambitious' and failed.

Villa were taken over by that crazy DR, people were mentioning how they made so many signings... look at their position now.

Far too many people are so short sighted, see clubs around us spending way over the odds for players and automatically complain about our club If we don't do the same.... stoke are apparently buying McClean for 5 million more than he's worth ffs so what does that tell you about they crazy world of football?

No it's bull. The mother told me "I will let you know if she will let me". She wouldn't. They know alright they are just treating it like national security which I think is pathetic. It's all our club after all.

Maybe she don't know herself so she can't tell her mother? No reason for til operators to know before anyone else... hardly confidential information it's just a fact that our club are very slow when it comes to announcements if you compare to other clubs. The club shop people aren't exactly in important meetings with the board so they won't know themselves til it's announced or they open the boxes with the kits in them.... I know the electrician who's just retired and even he said after working in the managers office, boardrooms etc... It's like getting blood out of a stone to find out info so I wouldn't take it to heart too much if I was you   :)

If that's the case it's either black or red surely? I know the mother of the person who runs the club shop and I can't get a bloody thing out of them.  >:(

I remember my cousin asking last year what colour the away kit was and the someone at the club shop said they don't see it themselves until they get them in stock when they are revealed.... maybe that is still the case and it's a top secret  ;D

It’s a player who won’t be available for selection here though

The same as mozza then? ... maybe we need to take a look at our medical team if our players are always injured.... then again it's easier to just blame chadli isn't it?

I went to the merry Hill store yesterday to pick up mine and my sons new home top and the store manager told me the away kit should be on sale by the end of next week.

A week before the season starts? I should hope so... I could have guessed that without working for the club ???

It does diminish their value............to us.
Berahino was £25m before he started playing up, he went for what? £15m
Whose the looser?


We gained around £12 for a player who's goals helped us alot at one point then their relationship with the club went sour.... there will be players in the academy that the club put the same time and effort into who will then get released at a later stage because they are not good enough and we get £0 for them.

Is the World Cup Chadli, the same Chadli who missed 36 games out of 38 for the Baggies, due to medical problems, and spent most of his time on the treatment table?

Yep, managed by two clueless managers who would probably play rondon kanu over Ronaldo.

If we had a coach who will choose quality over 'ard workers' and 'great personalities', we would probably still be in the prem now.

Sponsers will always look naff on a striped shirt, always has done always will regardless of who or what the sponsor looks like.

Personally think it's a pretty smart shirt and glad to see they've gone for the thick stripes to put a bit of history into it rather than just being get what were giving by adidas.

Doesn't he generally do lighter training anyway due to his knees?

I remember something about his cycling that he enjoys doing being limited because of his knees too... but at a time where lazy poor papers are desperate for stories, they could say big dave as handed in a transfer request unless we sign Messi and a good majority of people would believe it  ;D

Brazil? Overrated,uninspiring dare I say it boring.
No chance of winning it.
Neymar,who he?

It's only been one game. Let's see when it comes to the final round of group games.

I agree and your right it was only one game. One was against Spain and one was against Iceland though, no offence to Iceland.

I just don't get the sense that Messi has the will ,when compared to Ronaldo , to drag the team by the scruff of the neck through the tournament.

That's what sets him apart for me.

A questionable pen, a questionable poor effort from De gea which would have been a very basic save for any goalkeeper and a free kick are what cost Spain the 3 points. he hardly tore Spain apart like some make out.

The difference for me is that Messi was having to come into his own box to win the ball for his team at times and was surrounded by 3/4 players at a time where Ronaldo was receiving balls he could run onto.

Messi disappointing. Ronaldo on fire.

Best player of all time bar Pele.

Who else has nerves like the man?

What Ronaldo done yesterday is what Messi has been doing consistently all season in the league...  hence his goals and assists compared to Ronaldos. Also depends on what defines someone as the best player of all time.

Both amazing players who are by far two of the best around at this moment in time but for people to judge them after one game in this tournament is comical.

Ego, diving and sulking spoils Ronaldo for me though personally.

Love watching them both and will be interesting to see how they both do in this tournament.

Non Sports/ Non Politics Board / Re: fuel prices
« on: June 10, 2018, 10:12:36 PM »
Some people won't use supermarkets for fuel as they believe its inferior yet all fuel has to pass the same tests before its allowed for sale. Let the idiots keep using the expensive places, saves me having to queue up.

They have to pass the same tests and must conform to the same British and European standards but its the additives that are added for each garage that makes the most difference.

Personally it makes no odds to me as i have a company car that I use for personal use so costs me nothing but I know of people that claim to notice a difference in mpg and better running of the vehicle when they have started using more expensive fuels rather than supermarket fuels.
