Albion Matchday Forum / Re: After Match Debate

I thought we were solid throughout. No soft underbelly like we’ve had for years. Yes direct and in your face. But by god we work hard and hassle and Harry teams. Press well defend well,attack set pieces look a threat on those all the while.we were not pretty on the eye. But we are effective I’m not sure what some fans want tbh. We’ve got what seems like a very tight budget. And this manager seems to be getting every last drop out the players he has. I for one prefer us being a side nobody wants to play against than expansive and easy to get at. I thought we were terrific tonight in a tough game against a team who tried to stifle us. It’s all about opinions I suppose🤷🏻‍♂️

I really don't understand the criticism of Sam thought he was excellent today no chance with the goal made some excellent saves kept us in the game.
great point we would have been dead and buried without him today

Decent performance. Played some nice quick stuff. Need to be more clinical.  But believe we will bring a goalscorer in. New boys all did well. Especially. Filip and ajayi he's gunna be some plater that lad. All in all promising. And billic certainly seems to have them trying to play quick clever football. Noted the crowd on express and star site said 15000 never that many there

What a half🙈 he’s gotta change the formation and at leat two of the personnel at half time. He won’t though guarantee it. Barry and Livermore are so slow together and harper doesn’t work back it’s a dream midfield to play against

So many things telling me big Dave hasn't got a clue. Playing out from the back with defenders who can't pass. Keeps playing brunt centre mid who can't run let alone defend. Keeps picking mears. Same subs who don't make impact.cant change from back 3 when clearly not working.

Mears and Robson kanu to make all the difference 🙈😆. His subs are baffling at times

Brunt centre mid never has been never will be. Meats never good enough for this level at this stage of his career drop these two. We win the league quite simple really.

Dreading this think we're playing decent football at the moment despite looking very shaky at the back. Can see a McLean or saido goal if not both just our luck and there both rubbish at best. A convincing win would put us right on track hope the lads can do it

£16 million for Rondon is a relative steal being as i'd wager a good number of clubs would be willing to pay over £20 million for him.

Unless if something crazy happens and he has some bizarre desire to play in the championship he wont be here come August.

Will the club reinvest the £16 mill and buy two decent championship strikers for that money? Lets hope so but this is Albion after all.

(Ps the comments about Rondons goalscoring record are borderline laughable.
A) He's been playing in a mega defensive team
B) He's a target man not an out and out finisher
C) His goalscoring record is not even that bad anyway)
his record here is poor. Odemwingie wasn't in an all out attacking team and his record against rondon is better. And he wasn't always right up top like rondon is. The guys not that good imho. Rodriguez was more of a threat when he was up top on his own than rondon was last season. 16 mill is a great price if u ask me. I would have snatched the hands of with the offer from China. It didn't do us any better keeping him did it. We may aswell of let Evans go too. He was poor all season

When we are watching HRK bumble his way around the pitch in November, I will remind you of that comment.
didn't mention hrk. if they get two decent championship strikers in we will be fine rondon wont be missed. I personally would try to keep rodriguez sell rondon and get two in. its going to be interesting summer. its all about opinions though granted

So we are supposed to rate our own players based on media transfer speculation rather than their actual record playing for us? Rondon spurned key chances left right and centre in critical games and we ended up getting relegated by thin margins. He played a sizeable part in our relegation. Nothing class about that.
agree 100% with this. never seen a forward so bad in front of goal with the ball at his feet. I get that he works hard and all that. but we wont miss him one bit in my opinion.

Only short time ago he lost his new born baby so he may still be mentally effected I know I would be. He was sat in box today at the back of east stand and seemed ok. Had a photo with my lad. And few others. Hope he is ok. He has been below Apr for a while now. So he could be mentally still effected. Been better for england than for us. And he hasn't been that good for england. Hope he comes back fresher and stronger

I think the boredom lies with being an established mid table team.

1999/2000 - Survive Relegation on final day
2000/2001 - Play Offs
2001/2002 - Promotion
2002/2003 - Relegation
2003/2004 - Promotion
2004/2005 - Survive Relegation on final day
2005/2006 - Relegation
2006/2007 - Play Off Final
2007/2008 - Win the League
2008/2009 - Relegation
2009/2010 - Promotion

Eleven seasons in a row in which we were always fighting for our lives to get up or stay in the division so every game especially in the second half of the season was crucial. Except for the few months Pepe Mel was in charge, we have always been comfortable in that second half of the season with nothing to play for. That adrenaline rush that Albion fans were used to in the 2000-2010 decade has gone because the club has succeeded. The dream for Albion fans was to be an established Premier League team after so many years looking like we didn't belong at this level, we've reached that goal and hit our ceiling. So then the manager in charge will get the brunt of the criticism of fans boredom towards Albion when in fact it's the realisation that it doesn't really get much better than this. It's the repetitiveness of achieving our goal every season of 40 points when in fact we can't realistically ask for much more other than a cup run.
when you break it down this is spot on. Never really thought of it like this. We are at our pinnacle at the moment. Apart from another miracle like Leicester

Have to agree about leko. Watched him at Walsall tonight and 1st half he constantly gave the ball away cheaply. I understand wingers have to try to take full backs on. But they have to keep possession also from time to time. He improved 2nd half mind
