West Bromwich Albion FC / Our Most Valuable Players
« on: December 09, 2011, 03:10:31 PM »
Just read a short piece on Football365 on who they thought each Premier League clubs 3 most important players were and for us they had;

1. Youssuf Mulumbu 2. Shane Long 3. Jonas Olsson
If you haven't seen Mulumbu in action, do yourself a favour and watch the Baggies beast closely next time West Brom grace your screen. Mulumbu gets through all the dirty work and still finds time to get up the pitch and be a goal threat. Talking of goal threats, Long has been an unqualified success that has allowed Roy Hodgson to risk alienating Peter Odemwingie and could be the difference between 10th and 16th this season. The trio is completed by Olsson, who is the glue that just about holds the West Brom defence together.

What would your top 3 be and why? Personally I can't argue with their assessment, but would have Foster a really close 4th for the confidence he gives me in pretty much every game bar a couple of unpunished errors.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Hodgson's away record

"Since taking charge of West Brom, Roy Hodgson has taken more points away from home than any other side (9)"

Just thought this fact was worth a mention of it's own mainly because many worried before he came about Roy's poor away record and possible negative tactics. Bodes well for next season, as winning away from home will get you climbing the table.

Took a little while, but has defintely found his feet and stepped up to this level. Looks like the player of last season, which in my opinion was one of the best for an individual player in recent seasons.
 His ball to Vela in the last minute tonight was unreal, Xavi-esque. And this form is even more crucial with the decline of Brunt. If he keeps it up it might just keep us up.
