Out of interest how much do you think Berahino is Worth? He reminds me very much of a young Defoe who at the same age in 2004 went to spurs for around 10 million (7 million plus Zamora) Defoe had scored more prem goal but had played many more games, but Berahino's u21 record wipes the floor with Defoe's. I would say if he continues to have a good season and gets between 10-15 goals he must be worth 20 million at least. If Longs worth 12 million and he is only going to get you 6-8 goals a season then Berahino must definitely be over that.

Played well today but he is not a right midfielder, he kept drifting into the middle and wisdom ended up taking up two roles. Needs to be used in the middle but who do you leave out is the big question?

Must be an improvement on Sinclair and gives us something different to Brunt when we need to so I think this is a decent signing. I like the fact that he raises his game for the big matches because every game is in the prem, so I think we can get the best out of him.

I think this would be a good bit of business. I know it doesn't get the pulses racing but we've going to need about 8 new players this summer. I think we'll only get 10/12milliin to spend so that will only get us 2 or 3 players and we'll get another 2 or 3 on a free and the same for loans I reckon so he'll make a decent squad player replacing Reid

Who cares about bayern Munich....we are Albion!!! Blue and white strips is all I've known and all I care About.  Looks like another pr disaster by the board!!!!!!!!!!!!
im just saying that the template could be same as it does seem to have some pin stripes which is what everyone seems to think that we will have, and if it is then i don't think it looks too and keeping in with tradition

Sorry if this is slightly off topic but I was getting annoyed at one of my Facebook friends who is a Wolves fan boasting that the they were getting over 30k fans in league one and that Albion can't even do that in the prem. I didn't want to lower myself by rising to it but I'm pretty sure we got over 30k against Stoke in the 92-93 season, possible against Swansea too in the play off semi, Can anyone confirm what the attendance was?

Didn't realise we were in such a dire state back then, losing 30k a week!. Makes you realise how lucky we are today.

They had 4 pitch invasions today! The ref nearly had to abandon the game. And they haven't even won the league yet, thick b***ards!

Few weeks ago I was talking to a guy who is a friend of JP, and there had been talk of us building a new stadium across the road where the bakery is. He didn't mention when this was talked about so its was probably something that was discussed a while ago, maybe even before we build the east stand. Wouldn't really want to move but maybe we are a bit limited where we are so i guess it was discussed as an option, doubt it would ever happen.

Just can't see how we can survive now. Us fans gave them everything today and if you can't beat a poor Cardiff side at home having scored 3 goals then who can you beat?

Don't get me wrong, I think Ridgewell is shocking, but I just don't see the logic in saying that Brunt is a worse defender than him but drop Ridgewell anyway and play Brunt in his left back position.

And as for making us more creative, I can't see it honestly.
what I should have said is when on form Ridgewell is a better defender but he has been shocking for a while now and I feel if we are to continue with playing 3-5-2 than Brunt would be better suited as he offers us more going forward.

I don't think Brunt being played instead of Ridgewell would make us anymore weaker than it already is, I just think it would make us more creative. For me Ridgewell is out of form and needs to be dropped. Makes no difference now anyway whilst Brunts injured as id rather Ridgewell than Popov.

I really wish we would try Brunt at left back or wing back I think he would be a lot more useful than Ridgewell. We really need a quick tricky winger who can help us counter attack and Brunt is not that type of player as he can sometimes slow the game down but he offers too much to be dropped with his corners, free kicks and splitting balls. At left back he could still offer us that and can over lap to put some decent crosses in, he would be a good option for Foster to throw to and although he may not be a better defender than Ridgewell He is faster and is maybe better with his head.

I though Dorrans did well considering he's been out in the cold for a while. I forgot he was playing for a while which may seem strange to then say he had a good game but I realised it was because he hadn't done anything wrong, and as I watched him for a while I noticed he was playing a very tidy game keeping his passes neat and doing the simple thing like tracking back and spreading the ball. Think he did a good job covering for Yacob.

At least it's one problem gone. I'm really pleased its over, I was sick of reading about it. Whether we stay up or go down next summer the club really needs to take a look at itself and make some serious changes because we've gone from being the best run club in the league to the worst within a year. Every player we've brought in has flopped and Anelka was a disaster! Should have let him retire. I'm pretty sure i could have taken up the job of head of recruitment at the Albion as a Saturday job and done a lot better and saved us some money.

Yeah, due to the subs made by Pepe...  ;D
Id say its his half time talk that does it as we are a much better team when we come out for the second half

I think this stat has more to do with us starting games badly and improving by the end of it.

I've been one of the many who have slated him and called him a waste of money but he's really grown on me now and think he could be very important to us. Offers us something different and can change a game. Still wish he would stop trying to win free kicks and sulking when it hasn't gone his way though.

I get really excited when we get a corner with him and Gareth going up for them.

I too thought he was great last night, really worked hard for the team. He can't do anything right in the eyes of the guy behind me who gives him dog abuse every week though. Really want him to bang a free kick in the top corner so it will shut him up, need him to stop letting Reid take most of them.
