Last Match Forum - 06/04 Stoke City (A) / Re: After Match Debate

Probably should be disappointed losing a 2 goal lead, but another awayday undefeated and judging by the in game thread Stoke could have been out of sight!
Play offs are a lottery and will be tough whoever we play should we get there.

Irrespective of what went before, 0-2 to 2-2 a point is not to be sneezed at, with other results mainly going our way! Could do better, but it is what it is!

I was in a bar in Cyprus when Ray Graydon, ex Villa and the then manager of Walsall, came into the bar. If I remember correctly Walsall had just been promoted, he was very amicable and bought a round of drinks.
I've seen a few others like, Steve Bruce, his son Alex, they were with Frank Stapleton in the Orange Tree Chadwick End, and again saw Steve Bruce in the Boot at Lapworth the night Blues had beaten us probably condemning us to a relegation, although to be fair he was pretty decent about it! Also, saw Lee Hendrie in his romper suit (hoodie & tracksuit bottoms) in the Orange Tree!
Also, saw Robert Hopkins and Carlton Palmer at the bar one early Saturday evening in the Yard of Ale New St, and years before Gary Shaw at the Kohinoor Indian restaurant opposite where the Dome night club was.
I'm sure many others on here have seen players and managers out and about, interesting to hear who and where!

Grady Diangana is superb with the fans after the game...you can see he loves the club so much...always the last off applauding the fans.
To be fair, this season the camaraderie between the players never mind with the fans, is the best I've seen for many a season, something else I think Carlos has developed

Everyone gets excited because we seemingly have an easier run in than others, but the older fans between us know that typically Albion traditionally perform worse against these teams!

Long balls up to Weiman, but the second line behind him are too far back to pick up the loose balls knocked back by the defence

I don't like this playing out from the back, we're too slow at it ,I'm not saying lump it but we must mix it up a bit!

A decent point in the grand scheme of things!
QPR having a good run of results, no ground lost over the chasing teams, I'm ignoring the top 4, we didn't play well, Palmer redeeming himself after a poor moment, however a keepers mistake often results in a goal!
Games coming thick and fast, and may I suggest overall we are doing better than many may have expected!
On to the next one, no easy games in the championship!

Far too much fanning around on the edge of our own area

Playing far too deep now our better attacking players are off, did we sub and peak too soon?

I've just seen both goals on twitter or X whatever, and can I say how much the team cameraderie has come on this season, I've not seen such unity between the players for many a year, including the new guys, I guess that's something else we can thank Carlos for!

Leicester and Coventry already into last 8 , Southampton and Leeds still have a chance of doing so. FA Cup Final is the day before Champioship play off final . Any of these make it to both what happens ?

It would be nice to think one could make it, but without being a conspiracy theorist, it's probably already decided that 2 big premier teams make it!

All things midlands vlogs are ok but the 'its showtime' is cringe worthy - just my opinion
I think there's another lad called Will Burford, his vlogs are quite decent

Both sides looking shaky playing it out of the back, decent strike for their goal, but a deserved leveller from us!
All to play for!

I'm a bit concerned about this one, a long away trip in the opposite direction of another long one a couple of days ago!
They've got a decent front line, I've never liked the early kick offs although we did ok at Ipswich.
We haven't had our annual 4-0 dusting yet, there always seems to be one big defeat a season, hopefully we can buck the trend!
However, it's the Albion and the championship, you can't call many games in this division, see Preston/Coventry

My mom, a lifelong Albion fan, long term season ticket holder with my dad, passed away 8 years ago today.
I hope this news makes her smile from up above.
They're the reason I'm a baggie!

I don't want to be the bearer of bad news, but we all know the Albion when it comes to big occasions!
Please, please, buck this trend and welcome in the new era with a decent performance, at least, and hopefully a win!

Well happy with a point, was fearing a 2-0 defeat.
Didn't see/hear the game, only looked in on here! You could say disappointing after leading twice, but looking at the bigger picture, happy!

Someone tell the team to get on with it.  The more the crowd starts jeering when we're taking the time the more likely we'll pick up cheap yellow cards for time wasting when we otherwise wouldn't.
Pulisball lol  ;D

Happy with a 1-0, had a funny feeling that the Tony Mowbray effect may have done for us today!
Onto Ipswich away!
