Well done lads great win. Again  ;)
Great win , excellent all-round performance. Superb football in the build up for Diagne's missed chance. This is the kind of football we have been craving, just keep it going, you never know.

cash out quick !  8)
Not at the moment mate (£117) . I have been a fan of his since following him round at Birkdale when he was an amateur and finished equal 4th. He was a real cool customer even then. He can handle this, and is in a wonderful position. Come on Justin ;)

Burnley and Newcastle games recently when Allardyce said we had to win and set us up not too lose are the games that will cost us. We still need 3 wins to overtake Newcastle who showed yesterday they have some fight in them despite all thats gone on.

No easy games left and yes Southampton have a semi final a few days which means some players will be trying to play themselves in the team for it. I think we have the toughest run in from that lot to be honest.
Agree with you entirely Oldbury, in fact had it not been for the injuries to O'shea and Ivanovic, we may not have even won on Saturday, let alone in such a fantastic fashion.

Why would he?
Because sometimes you should concede that the opposition have outsmarted you,acknowledge it and try and learn something from it.  He was suggesting that they were winning when they went down to ten, and he clearly expected them to go on and win it. Allardyce spent the previous 24 hrs praising Tuchel for the good work that he had done defensively at Chelsea, and then we ripped them apart - no display of humility on occasion, is a weakness of management. Tuchel will last about  as long as Lampard did.

Don't want to take any gloss off our performance, but I wonder if Tuchel underestimated us. I wonder if he'd ever heard of West Brom before coming to England. In Germany, the Premier League is all about the same 6 or 7 big clubs. Maybe he thought we'd fall apart like Arminia Bielefeld, if we were put under any pressure. Whereas Allardyce obviously gave this game alot of thought.
What an arrogant tool Tuchel is 3 1/2 minute after the game interview and no mention of Albion whatever ****

Love this lad , good player, and I believe he loves it here despite being shabbily treated by both managers this season.
The game today changed on Callums introduction. I had a bet on him to score today @ 8-1 and he was very instrumental in my winning 16-1 bet on the result (just wish I did the double).
Some people think we wasted money on Callum, I think think is one case where LD did a great bit of business in getting him in for Burke , Eh Mr Wilder.

Fun fact: Aside from Chelsea Callum Robinson has never scored a Premier League goal against any other team.
Yes I know mate, all  the more reason to play him, 2 matches 3 goals I make it so far.

Robinson has to play surely , did enough to win the game in 45 mins at the shrine. Oh sorry - i forgot he falls into the category of unused sub now.

Very enjoyable to watch . Good all round team performance, with passing that put the first team to shame.
I had no sound and do not know the players names unfortunately, but I can say that the best player on the pitch was our right winger (number 7) . It was great to see players numbered 1-11. In summary I did not see anyone in our team who did not look fairly comfortable on the ball. It gave me great pleasure to watch this match with both teams giving their all. What a joy after watching some of the half-hearted **** poor fare we have witnessed from the first team this season

Basing this purely on those highlights. If Sam Johnstone had made that very early handling hash and palmed those shots into danger areas like Palmer did, a good number of posters would be joining me behind the settee so we could have our kittens at the same time.
Watched the whole game mate and his performance had "old" SJ written all over it.

Palmer had a bit of a nightmare for Lincoln against Oxford. Culpable for both Oxford goals and just an error strewn display over all.
Agree with you there, he was poor. I have watched Lincoln a few times and his form appears to have fallen away in the second half of the season. I thought Morgan Rogers showed his quality last night have seen a couple of his games for Lincoln, and think we should be going back to Man City with a loan offer, as they will be looking to send him to the Championship next season. No doubt he can do it at that level in my opinion.

Genuinely had no idea Boiler Man, Baggie Bird or any other mascot had been in stadiums to receive worldwide exposure on TV during this season's lockdown. Learn something new every day.

Just asking because their accounts can be viewed on Companies House website.

They turnover around £350 million & have a net profit of around £60 million. They disclosed a corporation tax payment of £9 million.

Sponsorship payments (which have to demonstrate a benefit to the business) can be offset against corporation tax, as a business development expense.

I suspect it's not paltry, but I can't see it being more than around £2 million.

Even so, it pays two player wages for the next 3 years.
If its £2m over three years it will pay two players about £6.5K per week, and if we sign them they are no bloody good. ;)

Nor do we need anyone who thinks Oliver Burke is better than Callum , rolling up here as manager

I hadn't thought about this, it is quite concerning, if this was driven by their former manager
His other signings have been awful in terms of returns. Ramsdale, Brewster, and Mcburnie about £60m there, deserved sacking
