West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: New Manager
« on: April 17, 2018, 03:05:02 PM »
I don't think experience of the league is important. Wolves just won the league how much experience of the league did their manager have? ......................... Compared to someone like Steve Bruce for example.

I agree with the sentiment but Wolves probably aren't the best example. With that squad they should be walking the league no matter who the manager is. It's a bit like with City in the Premiership - you could take any man or his dog off the street and install him as manager for a season and in all probability they'd still finish in the top 4. Provided said man / dog wasn't Alan Pardew of course...

Fantastic performance. What makes this season such a bitter pill to swallow is that fact there is a useful side there, as today and the match at Anfield showed. We just made a shocking choice of manager in Pardew.

Hats off to the travelling fans today who put the Yanited Plastics to shame. Magnificent.

Despite the first half wobble, Liverpool were mighty impressive over the two legs. I actually fancy them to go on and win it.

I've been to several Bundesliga games with 50,000 plus in the stadium and stood in the area behind the goal with these Rails. Seemed perfectly safe to me. Biggest problem was fans causing obstructions by going backwards and forwards to collect beers and sausages during the game.

I have too and it is light years away from the dilapidated terraces of old. Given that people stand week in week out at grounds up and down the country already, rail seats would actually be much safer than what we have now.

Bit of off field entertainment towards the end of the first half. Anyone know what it was all about?

Without getting into a political debate, the mayor leaves a lot to be desired. Not to mention massive cuts to the police budget.

Cutting back on stop and search hasn't helped either.

I've never said this before but if he's made manager, I won't renew my season ticket.
The board are just heaping more pressure on themselves because the fans will not give him any wiggle room.
Loose a couple of games and the fans will be in uproar.

I'd renew out of habit but would doubtless cut a lonely figure amid the sea of empty blue. At least I'd get a guaranteed seat per cheek.

Who is to say that Pardew will not be here for the start of next season

The lynch mob that would lay siege to the training ground?

When Studge fires us to 7 wins on the bounce and 41 points this thread will be obsolete.  ;)

5 on the spin. Then his hamstring will go ping.  ;)

Albion Matchday Forum / Re: Poor refereeing
« on: March 11, 2018, 01:51:28 PM »
I'm glad you started this topic, I'm not normally critical of refs, but I thought Madely was really poor yesterday.

Apart from the Wes Morgan block on Rondon, which he didn't even give as a foul, he should have punished Vardy for inciting the fans

I too struggle to understand how that chavy rat Vardy (good player mind) was not booked for that. If you get a card for jumping into the crowd to celebrate or taking off your shirt then surely you should for goading the opposition fans.

1985-86.

What a season that was. Won only 4 of 42 games. Even then we did the double over Blues.  8)

We weren't even in games that season we were hammered almost every week.

Yes, but we were so terrible that it was almost funny. Moreover, the nearest but by no means dearest were dire as well. Blues went down with us, Villa were circling the plug hole (and went down the next year) and Wolves were relegated to the fourth division. This season has been far, far worse. The 1985-86 side were simply not good enough, the current motley bunch includes some half decent(ish) players. I still don't believe we have worse players than Brighton yet they're 14 points ahead of us and Burnley have double our points tally! Worse still, the Dingles and the Vile may well come up. If Carlsberg did annōs horribilēs...

Have they got that giant Wicker Man set up in the centre circle of the Hawthorns yet? Time for a blood sacrifice methinks.

 Pulis and Williams are utterly and totally to blame. For this but thanks cause I prefer being in the championship anyway

Go down to St Andrews and see if the Blouse fans agree. I doubt Wolves fans did either pre-sugar daddy. It'll be long road back for us.

I like my football i LOVE the baggies but could someone explain to me  HOW THE FLYING **** is Livermore in the England squad?.

Truly one of the universe's great mysteries. If he can play for England then so can my Dad. The fact that he's been dead for nearly forty years and was Scottish shouldn't stand in his way.

Incredible. He's learned nothing.

We desperately need the points and of course I want us to win but there is a not inconsiderable part of me that hopes we don't manage to fluke a result today. Pardew has got to go. He'd be out of his depth in that puddle by the Woodman Corner!

What was the name of that tatter we had in the eighties? Something bovine sounding.

Depends how you define 'excitement'. Being chased by a horde of particularly rabid hounds is probably quite exciting too. Likewise battling relegation to League 1 à la Birmingham City...
