Title: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City
Post by: wba1968a on January 11, 2012, 06:21:54 PM
A curious report in The Times today (11/01/12).
QPR have been offered Odemwinge, who is surplus to requirements at WBA.

Sorry, but The Times is hidden behind a pay wall, so you can't see it unless you subscribe to the newspaper.
Perhaps someone else can check to confirm I'm not dreaming!

Yep surplus to requirements because this club is absolutely over-loaded with good strikers, why do we need Odemwingie when we have so many Premiership quality strikers? We have Long; Cox; Fortune; and Bednar, that's more than enough quality for any club, it's a bit pointless keeping Odemwingie when we've got those four players locked in an intense battle for the two forward positions. Sell him, sell him right now.

I also heard this as I listened to talkSport in the press review...

They said we OFFERED him to QPR.
This to me, can only suggest that we must be further down the line of a signing that is let on.

I am not sure about this plainly QPR have money to spend and might pay over the odds given their plight. On the basis of his performance against Everton I would not hesitate to sell him but and this a huge but we absolutely have to have a replacement lined up.

So a striker who scored 15 goals last season and isn't doing too badly this season has been deemed surplus to requirements because we have Roman Bednar and Marc Fortune who will obviously score more than 15 goals and we will even let him go to a team who are rivals in league position  ;D

Prepare your fiery arrows...

This one has a ring of truth because of the wording. To say qpr have made an offer is easy and usual but to say that he has been offered by WBA is unusual and unlikely so I'm forced to think there may be truth in it. That said DA, RH and JP aren't stupid so if it is true a big name or very talented player must be close to signing and we need some readies.

Fire at will.

The only possible way I can see it being true is if we sign a big name on a perm contract pretty soon then offload him. That said I don't think we would offload him to a rival league team fighting for survival like us.

The only way I could see us offering him to QPR is if we have got someone more or less signed, and we desperately need the money from selling Pete. Selling to QPR could make sense actually, they'd pay over the odds for him. Interesting to see if theres anything in this and how/if it develops. 6 months ago I'd categorically say no, however, in my opinion, he is no longer the best striker at the club and could be used to create funds for a better player.

What have you been smoking mate? How could selling Odemwingie to QPR make any sense whatsoever from a footballing standpoint? If you think we are going to be able sell Pete and replace him with a proven talent in January, you are mistaken. That just won't happen. The best case scenario would then be having to take a punt on another unproven player or a player that has some sort of baggage. Why would we put ourself in that position when we already have a proven double figure striker. We need to strengthen the squad by adding quality to give us more options, not dismantle it by selling the player whose goals not only kept us up last year but left us comfortably in mid-table. If Fortune, and Bednar played 100 seasons in their peak, it is unlikely they would score 15 goals. They are the players that need to be replaced. Odemwingie is about as good a player as we can hope to have play for us for any length of time.

read my post again, I meant it in a "That's the only way its ever going to happen" context. And he isn't a proven premier league, he has one good season, a proven striker is someone like Bent (hurts to say that, i hate him), Rooney, Drogba, to an extent Torres, players who have proved that their good fortune was actually permanent premiership class. Granted, everyone has to start somewhere, but Pete is two and half seasons of 15+ goals per season from being a proven premiership striker. If we have someone lined up with 3/4 years of premiership experience under their belt, go for it. But in Long and Odemwingie I think we have two of the best "new boys" in the league.

And i completely agree about strengthening the squad, but we need the money from somewhere. I hope he doesn't leave, still has something to prove.

I don't think Odemwingie is entirely to blame he got bugger all support from midfield or Cox who didn't sdeem to know what he was supposed to be doing. It must be difficult for him to recieve the ball out wide and then try and hold it up until Cox or Thomas make a run for him by which time he's surrounded by defenders. I think he's trying hard but sometimes has to try and do the job of two players because the support isn't there.

Outrageously greedy, unpredictable and most of the time choosing the wrong option. Baring this in mind, he has only reached double figures, goal-wise, in 3 of the 15 season's in his career (including Nigerian, Belgium, French & Russian leagues - all pretty poor IMO).

Think that's bull IMO.

I'm sure Zamora is on 45k a week at Fulham.  He'll probably want a rise when he moves as it may be his last big transfer.  I'd say theres absolutely no chance he'll be coming to us.

If the right money came infor Pete I'd say snap their hands off and get a replacement.

Either change personnel or tactics.
Title: Re: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City
Post by: Dan on January 17, 2012, 12:27:55 PM
Odemwingie is far more of a goal threat than Zamora ever will be. Talk about hitting double figures, Zamora has done it once in his career out of 8 premier league seasons.

People think this is far too much like Football Manager, if you really think we should sell our best flair player, when we have no obvious replacement and its highly unlikely we will, well thank God you have no say at the club. Odemwingie may have only scored 4 times this season, but 3 of those goals were in games we ended up winning by a one goal margin.

You want to build around your better players not sell them.

He is being asked to play a different role this season that isn't helping him as he struggles to play with his back to goal in a deeper role which is what he has been doing, he has been blighted by injury and defenders have worked him out to a certain degree. It doesn't help when the team as a group look devoid of confidence especially when playing at home, he is greedy but most strikers are and he still manages to get a number of assists.

He is still one of our most important players and has already scored some vital goals for us this season and that is with him playing crap according to most on here.

Post by: Albion79 on January 17, 2012, 07:04:03 PM
I have no idea if the rumours, etc are true but i think this again comes back the managers plans and future.

I personally feel that Odemwingie isnt a Roy type player, he thrived end of last season but rightly or wrongly Roy has implemented his own style and Pete isnt the same player and does not have he same affect, for me i think we have a bloke who has shown he can score goals and can be a matchwinner and i would like us to keep him.

However, if Roy is here for the long haul i think he would prefer Long over Odemwingie as you know what you are getting with Long where Pete is unpredictable. If Roy is staying and he doesnt think Pete fits into his plans then he may as well sell him, i dont want that but if the manager dont see him in his plans thats the obvious thing.

The risk is if we do that, Roy then leaves in the summer the new manager may of loved Odemwingie and played a style to suit him, get the best out of him and we have let him go.

Roys future needs sorting asap!

We wouldn't pay the wages of an adequate replacement BUT I cannot see him going anywhere and this seems a totally fruitless story.

If we sell our best players then we have little hope going forward.

Unless there is something seriously wrong behind the scenes, I can't see Peace accepting anything under 7-8 million for him after the contract we've just signed him up to. He makes bad decisions sometimes but as others have said, he's also not being played in the role where he was so prolific last season. He's one of those players who can get a goal out of nothing on occasion, which is hard to find in any league. Peace will not be made a mug of on this one.

Post by: HampshireBaggie on January 18, 2012, 10:31:49 AM
Pete has to work a lot harder than last year. we are not playing to his strengths. He has to defend from the front. You can't defend off the front by playing off a defenders shoulder. Unfortunately whenever Pete has the ball he has the defensive line in front of him. So when he tries to play his game which is all about dribbling then shooting, he either gets tacked or blazes it over.

How many of his goals last season where one-on-ones - loads.

He needs to play off the shoulder. If he isnt going to be played like that then sell him.

Post by: VANDERLEI on January 20, 2012, 01:18:32 PM
I'm shocked at how many supporters seem to be ok with the prospect at losing out most successful and prolific striker of recent times. Even through a dip in form, he has scored some cracking goals and won us matches. If you think Nicky Maynard is going to be a better option than Odemwingie, you are delusional. I for one will be screwin' if we allow him to leave. I'd rather have to replace the manager than a 15 goal premiership striker with our financial clout.
Title: Re: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City
Post by: B_H_Baggie on January 20, 2012, 01:20:11 PM
I don't think there is anything in the rumours at all to be honest. Baird as far as I know is a right back and we simply need to strengthen the opposite side and Duff is well and truly on the decline and would want big wages.

Odemwingie has already scored some vital goals and got some assists despite being described as crap so far this season. He's been found out after his first season as he always would be so defenders know how to handle him now and he has struggled with injury and hasn't had a settled strike partner yet, there is a lot more to come from Odemwingie if fully fit and confident. Would be difficult to replace a player of his quality when in form, we need to build around him not let him go.

It all depends if we have someone lined up to replace Pete. If we have and our management team have the faith in that new signing it might not be all that bad.

However if hes sold without a replacement I can see there being trouble ahead.

As ive said before I think Pete will be gone either way in January.

It all depends if we have someone lined up to replace Pete. If we have and our management team have the faith in that new signing it might not be all that bad.

However if hes sold without a replacement I can see there being trouble ahead.

As ive said before I think Pete will be gone either way in January.

I agree.

But there are plenty of strikers that could replace Pete how he has been the past 6 months but we dont want that as we would be no better off, we want a replacement that will replace Pete of last season, that will be very hard and very very dear in January

I'm shocked at how many supporters seem to be ok with the prospect at losing out most successful and prolific striker of recent times. Even through a dip in form, he has scored some cracking goals and won us matches. If you think Nicky Maynard is going to be a better option than Odemwingie, you are delusional. I for one will be screwin' if we allow him to leave. I'd rather have to replace the manager than a 15 goal premiership striker with our financial clout.

Absolutely agree mate, glad you said it as i thought it was only one who thought it was completely bonkers!!

theres no guarantee damien duff will be any good, if we had another replacement lined up what guarantees do they offer. We know Pete has goals in him he's said good things about us lot and i think we should back him he'll probably get 25 goals in the 2 seasons he's been here come the end of this season, if before we signed him we were told that we'd be saying itd be mad to sell him and it is. However, Roy needs to play him differently thats where the problem lies.

The only way I can see Pete going to Fulham is if Zamora comes the other way, Hodgson really rates him, and got the best out of him in his time there. A very good player, like MAF with pace and the ability to actually shoot from time to time. Not slating Fortune, but lets be honest, he's a slightly better Emile Heskey. Hope he doesn't leave to be honest, he has shown signs of improvement over the last few weeks.

Selling Pete is incoceivable. Why people say that they would be happy for him to go for x million I don't know. Who will we get to replace him? Or are you just happy to have money in the bank? Our squad is short on genuine premier league striking talent. They did well yesterday but could you imagine MAF and Cox getting enough goals to keep us up? With Pete sold and Long sitting out the season with a broken leg this is exactly what would happen. Sell Pete... you're 'avin' a laugh!

I've been disappointed with Pete this season, but I also remember from past Premiership times how hard we found it to find the back of the net.  As it stands, he's still the only one in our squad who has done it with any regularity.

I'd certainly not like to see him go right now.

pete is a quality player, but unfortunately one who slips in and out of form at any given point...he's also a confidence player, and one that doesnt benefit from fan negativity or moaning and groaning at him.

ok he's got his bumper contract now and he's not playing well, but we need to get behind him, and show him support and faith when times are bad...not criticise him and want him out!

show him some love and he bangs in the goals!  for me he thrived off us with all the fans were bringing out banners welcoming him from moscow, and then later in the season when we had a new manager who showed some belief.

for me, it'd be suicide to sell him...he's a goal threat and has shown already this season can score a goal pretty much out of nothing!

He's offered very little this season to be honest.
On his day he's unplayable, at other times he's a waste of skin.

Sometimes a Pete moment of genius is all that stands between us and 3 points. It'd be unwise to sell him for anything other than silly money. I still believe that the change to 442, and the resulting lack of support from midfield has stunted Pete's form and goals tally this season.

He's been in and out of the team and relatively off form and has still won us quite a few points. Killed the Wolves game, won us Blackburn and Norwich. Done around the same as Long who people are saying has had a great season.

I would take 6-8 million though...

To lose Pete would be very very stupid. I appreciate if a club was to offer lets say 6-7 Million for him then it would be quite irrasitable. But then you need to put that money straight into buying another striker. We have to remember Pete hardly had a pre season, He has had a few injury's this year, and he is playing with a lot less support than last year. Also him and long are yet to form a partnership. I really do like him as a player, and think he can score goals out of nothing, He has already got us for argument sake 7 points this season with assists and goals, maybe more points. We need to be careful with a player like Pete, the fans get on his back too much, I honestly feel he is the kind of player to just walk away. He's a premiership striker, we have been asking for, for years. Now we have two or three in long and fortune (after his fantastic performance against stoke). Really don't want him to be sold.

Even if someone did offer that though there'd be no point unless there's an obvious available replacement. It'd be suicidal to go the rest of the season with really only Long as a premier league striker, and he's had various injury problems the past few months.

Then any replacement would likely cost well over the odds, just like Liverpool last year, got a too good to turn down deal with 50m, then ended up having to pay 35m for Carroll.

When I first reported the story in 'The Times' that WBA had offered Odemwingie to QPR, many said it was a piece of lazy journalistic nonsense. Now it is clear that the story was true.

Odemwingie's demeanour shows he is unhappy and the coach has expressed his frustration with the player. He will be gone soon, before his value declines too far.
Title: Re: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City

I honestly don't see how this pure speculation based on the fact we would like another striker can suddenly mean that initial story of offering him to QPR was definitely true, you are just guessing like everyone else.

We rarely use Cox as a striker, until last week Fortune hadn't been used. Tchoyi hasn't been used for a good while so we only have Odemwingie and Long who has been struggling with injury. We simply need more options.

It wouldn't surprise me if he went in the summer but it would surprise me if he went anywhere before this window closes. We have let strikers go in January before and really suffered for it, we can't make that mistake again.

Hodgson has been speaking this morning about the fact that he would like to sign a new striker - apart from Hustzi, but is not too optimistic. If he is successful, however, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if we cash in on Odemwingie.

The reality is Fortune deserved to keep his place after the game at Stoke and Long seems to be a little ahead of him in the pecking order especially after the impact he made when replacing Odemwingie in the game against Norwich in the league the other week. We had already had our hands forced with injuries to Jara and Thomas with the other two changes made, I think people are genuinely reading too much into rumours and recent team selections.

What about Cox starting ahead of him?  Albeit on the right of midfield he did eventually go up top (so I am told).

Keeping him fresh for the next 2 games I would think. On his day PO is the best player we have. A genuine match winner. Lets not forget he had an off period over Xmas and around this time last year. Once he hit form again he carried us through the end of the season. He needs the fans to get behind him. Very much a confidence player who needs to feel the support of the fans.

Pete probably didn't play as I'm sure Roy said the other day he would rest players as we have 3 games in 7 days least now he will be fit Wed and will have no excuse as he didn't play last week nor yesterday

Fortunes recent good form will be given as the reason as why we haven't replaced PO and the money will disappear into running costs.

The club won't sell him without a replacement. I know people will mention Earnshaw and Horsfield, but a) you'd think we'd learn from that and b) neither of them were anything like first team as much as Odemwingie is when they were sold. Nor did either of them have anything like the quality.

If he went , we got 6m+ and signed ridgewell and a good winger I would see it as good business.

I think both the club and he could of done more this season but i dont think he is a Roy type player, he is unpredicatable, we as fans like him because he can win a game on his own.

A sicknote who possibly has a broken bone in his back apparently so maybe not exactly skiving. He's already made himself available when not fully fit and has played when not fully fit so bit harsh to label him a sicknote.

I've got no time for Odemwingie he's paid to do a job of work and he seems reluctant to try and play the way the hes asked to, or maybe he cant I'm not sure. For the money he's paid he ought to be at least making a fist of it but he doesn't appear to be.

Now in his defence I watched the seasons review from last season when all the players played with a smile on their face and a swagger in their step.
A short interview with Pete he says, 'West Brom play the way I like to play my football it is very good,'
that makes me think these players are playing to instructions that they either don't like or don't trust.

Agreed but the majority of the 40k a week or whatever we pay him is for sticking the ball in the back of the net something he isn't doing this season. Against Everton and Swansea at home he's missed absolute sitters that would've earnt us a point in both games.

Pete is getting on average 1 chance per game.

Last season that was more like 3 or 4.

He should be played off the last man or sold. He isn't the right type of striker to be chasing balls down and coming deep.

Long runs with "locked" hips, ie they do not move back and forth with the leg properly. Watch him run, his legs move up and down like drumsticks but there is very little movement in the hips. This means he will have his fair share of groin and back injuries.

Personally i think it's a stupid move, if Wingie has a bad spell, he'll lose confidence, the crowd gets on his back and he'll be dropped. It'll be like going back to Spartak Moscow. He'll be the new Kuszczak

Owing to the contract recently signed by PO if he leaves us it will be because the club is ok with that scenario and want the money for whatever reason, so if Peter does leave to a bigger club don't blame him look to the boarbroom. If he does go to Arsenal he would be a bit part player, I would wish him the best of luck and hope he won't score against us in the future.

From Ifeanyi Abanum ?@ifeanyiabanu on twitter:

Osaze Odemwingie has hinted to Russian Media he could depart the Baggies in the summer market

Odemwingie's first choice is to remain the English Premiership, but is not ruling out a return to Russia.

'I have discussed my decision with the mgt of West Brom.They know that I honestly struggled for two seasons for the team,'' says Odemwingie

''I hope for understanding from the club. I think we agree - and I leave the club, maintaining good relations with all,'' said Odemwingie

Odemwingie adds:''You ask whether I would be considering proposals from Russia? And why not? I repeat, the Ist option for me is the EPL.''

This looks like the source, a Russian blogger: http://www.bobsoccer.ru/user/324/blog/?item=74118 (http://www.bobsoccer.ru/user/324/blog/?item=74118)

Google Translate mangles it well enough, but here it is:


Peter Odemwingie: "I want to fight for the title, but not for survival"

In an interview with our portal striker "West Brom" confirmed that the club wants to change to a more powerful and will consider any proposals, including from Russia.

- Have you discussed your decision with the guidance of "West Brom"?

- Yes, we talked. They know that I honestly struggled for two seasons on the field for the team, not sparing the strength and health. But now the time has come when I want to fight for the title, but not for survival. Even though my contract with "West Brom" is designed for two more years, I hope for understanding on the part of leadership. I think we agree, and I leave the club, maintaining good relations with all.

- Which option will be a priority for you? I mean, first of all, the country.

- If possible, try to stay in England. I am happy with everything here. By the way, on Saturday in London, I have a wedding. Then he will leave, they also begin with the agent to discuss options for continuing career. Some already have a blueprint, but would now like to hammer it down.

- Proposals will be considered out of Russia?

- Why not? Although, I repeat, in the first place for me is the English Premier League.

- What are the clubs fit you in style and ambition?

- I would like to make my next team to play attacking football. How, for example, Madrid "Real".

- How to evaluate a victory in England, "Chelsea" in the Champions League?

- Football, which they showed in the semifinal and final, can not be called beautiful. But, apparently, Roberto Di Matteo has decided that a different result can not be achieved. In Munich, "Chelsea" heroically defended by the entire team, including Didier Drogba, and deserved to win. I can only take my hat off to the players and congratulate Di Matteo with a fantastic start coaching career.

Does he actually think he could play for a big club like Madrid ? I would sell him of we could get 4 million plus, he's getting older thus being when he gets injured he's out for even longer.I think we need something different upfront now because Odemwingie got found out a bit last season. When he got 10 goals I thought he would of pushed on but it seemed to have returned to his low confident self.

The real problem would be replacing him as we wouldn't pay the wages of a 12-15 goals a season established striker and would go back to gamble signings - gambles that rarely pay off at this level.

Scouts aint silly, they will look at his age, goal scoring record, work ethics, attitude, previous quotes to media and injury records, overall he aint someone that a top club challenging for titles will touch, I personally think he has found his limit in us, mid table prem at best. Petes problem is he needs to be loved and constantly told how great he is, if he gets that he is a top player, but we have also saw the other side of him when he just cant be arsed, sulks, blames injuries and even needed a shrink to help him through a bad patch. My personal opinion is he aint going anywhere any time soon, and he will more than likely be here next season and say the new coach changed his mind blah blah blah.

Well at least Pete gives us something to read about!

I think same as most transfer windows i would imagine some of what is printed is true, some is exaggerated, some is total rubbish. I think he seems to like having his say and a comment on most things and sometimes it goes a bit wrong!

I have no idea if the article is true or not but what i would say is that if it was, whoever brought him to the Albion did a great sales pitch on him, he said he wants to be playing for the title, he must of known when he signed that werent going to happen unless JP worked his magic on him!

I hope he stays as i think he is a matchwinner but from his side i wouldnt build my hopes on Mourinho been in touch!

Long summer of speculation ahead then. Can't see why a big club would come in for him after this season, where he was far less impressive than last year, scored less goals and was injured more.

Having said all that, we do need to keep a hold of him. Proven premier league goal-scorers are not the easiest things to find.

The player who scored twice (a penalty and a blatant offside goal) in fifteen games for us this spring? I realize Shane wasn't really match fit (but why play him then), however, the jury is very much out on Shane imho. I just think he lacks the all round game to be our leading striker if we are to aim for a stable mid table position.

That's 40k off the wage bill as well as Scharners wage so we could attract someone for around 6 - 7 mill and afford to stick them on 40g a week it open's up a lot of quality options for us.

Don't really understand these types of reactions. He is well within his rights to explore better options for himself. Some people just seem to dislike Odemwingie; Olsson doesn't seem to get the same abuse and what he has said is tantamount to the same thing. Any key player who leaves will be leaving for a lot of money and will have earned their move. If his attitude is poor and he is having a detrimental effect on the team then we can criticise him. Who was the last first team player we have sold whilst we were in the Premiership anyway?

We may have given him a chance in the Premiership but I bet other clubs would of probably have taken the same gamble if we hadn't. The fact is he cost very little, took a pay cut to come here and has contributed massively. I think he has been very professional and conducted himself very well overall during his time here - people should cut the guy some slack.

Our problem would be finding as replacement within budget who can score 10-15 goals in the Prem. I remember Mowbray saying going into the season we would be fine for goals with Miller, Bednar and Moore as our strikers.  He got that badly wrong and then was forced into panic loans at Xmas , Jay Simpson..all of which played a massive role in our relegation.

Some people clearly don't recognise talent at all, anyone who thinks we'd sign a player anywhere near as talented is deluded. If you want good players be prepared for the press to link them away. If we're to establish people need to stop crying about such articles.

He's by far and away the best player we've had (and who's actually shown it at the top level) for many a year.

I agree. Someone clearly is stirring up crap about PO at every opportunity. People then use old nonsense to build on the latest nonsense to create an storm of nonsense to get all worked up about.

I just don't get why people bite on such obvious troll bait time and time again.

Has there ever been any concrete evidance of him distruping or making a nuisance of himself?

Talks**** have made up a story to get people calling him up. Obviously if a club makes a silly offer then we will accept but that is the same with any player at the club.

cant afford to let him go hes the only one of our forwards who can score goals at this level.
fortune isnt a goalscorer
Cox needs a run of games but im unsure we can accomodate him.
Long is all huff and puff and runs his socks off but is not good enough to be our main strker.

all decent players get linked away have to get used to it.
The agents are the ones who leak the story as they're the ones who get the money from the transfer.
im not reading into this story i think its garabge

Lets play devils advocate here and what if it actually is true do people expect Clarke to accept being undermined just because hes our most talented players in some peoples view?

My own belief is the story is exagerated beyond proportion however he has got an history of fall outs.

I actually think PO is going to have a really big impact in the league this season. Second season syndrome out of the way he knows what the PL is all about. He has all the ability to do that at this level. My one criticism is his reluctance to use his team mates a bit more. If he trusted them and made the runs off the ball that he can few defenders have the pace to live with him. We have the creative midfielders to supply him.

Don't know about anyone else but I got sick and tired of this last summer when we had the same palava about him going here, there and everywhere.

If the money's right, get rid.

I agree with this. Personally think at 31 we have seen his best years. Cash in reduce the wages and sign someone else.
Also hodgson came out and moaned about odemwingie last year with his numerous 'injuries' so he is a bit of a whiner by the sounds of it.
Dont get me wrong he is a good player but for me high maintenance and at the only realistic age we could get a decent fee for him.

Get a replacement and i agree his value can only go down from here on in due to his age and his attitude as been bad since the beginning of last season.
When you play as selfish as he did last year your doing yourself no favours.

well selling shorey means we have limited cover at left back
Scharner has been a massively influential player at the club and scored some important winning goals at places like seal park, st james', stadium of light. big player for us in derby games got the crowd going. not to mention he and andrews were both in the pecking order above Dorrans last season. All 3 had premier league experience which is vital. so i also to an extent agree we look weaker.

but if we sold odemwingie i would be marching to the bookies and backing us to go down. As if our main strike line was fortune and Long we would struggle!!!

But if I'm honest, of all the people to finish chances, it was usually him I trusted most. He can be selfish if he wants to score, and an Odemwingie lacking confidence wants to score. Soon as he's got his confidence he loses the selfishness and the team performances go up too.

All three of those played a significant part last season. As yet none of them have been replaced and with Cox potentially leaving as well we have no squad depth whatsoever.

If you also add Pete to that list aswell then were starting to look pretty weak.

"Get rid off Odemwingie, he's got a bad attitude, he's disruptive blah blah blah".

There has been NO clear evidence of Odemwingie ever doing anything wrong. Fabricated stories, badly translated interviews, false accusations that he was an feigning injury which he proved were false when he posted a picture of his injured foot on Twitter, wild rumours and presumptions. The worst he's done is talked about a hypothetical situation regarding a top top team coming in for him where he'd possibly be unable to say no. He's a bit arrogant and on the pitch he's often quite selfish (which of course is sometimes very frustrating), but off it he's done little wrong. He's also been here two seasons and produced the goods reaching double figures in goals for both of them, which is a terrific record, so you can't lambaste his on the pitch contributions either.

Strikers who can score 10+ goals in a season in the Premiership are absolute gold dust, extremely hard to get hold of unless you're one of the top few teams, so now we finally have one after trying to get one for years and years it's unbelievable people want to get him of him. Madness. I admit to doing this myself in the past, but people need to stop getting so worked up over crap from the likes of Talkcrap and SkySports who are famous for the nonsense they spout.

Don't think JC would be so naive to sell our most important goalscorer unless he was pretty damned certain that he'd got an equally prolific scorer nailed on to come in. I hope as well DA remembers the debacle of Mowbray's team going into a Prem. season with arguably the weakest set of forwards in the Division (Bednar, Miller, Moore, Beattie). And look where we ended up.
I don't want to run down Long and Fortune too much as they are good at what they do, but at this level you need a finisher who can unlock very well organised defences with a snap shot, or a dribble and shot. And Pete is the best we have at doing that.

Don't see how the two can be compared but hey lets have a pop at Dozza for a change.

If Odemwingie is sold then the questions have to be asked elsewhere not on here and certainly not to be used to have a pop at other players. Maybe he is the one who wants to go and the club will hold out for an offer they find acceptable not what the player deems acceptable.

No but to a certain extent, you do have to keep them sweet (your best players), it's common sense. You certainly don't drive your best players out of the club. Can you imagine Mourinho selling Ronaldo because he upset him in training? No he'd get his arm around him and have a stern but quiet word.

Only you do have form on this one Jacko? Fans just express their views and feelings on what they see in each individual case. There isnt anything fundamentally wrong with that. If players feel Odemwingie is more focussed on the cash than the result thats their view. I dont agree thats the case but in truth there are probably as many Dorrans knockers out there anyhow.

Money talks in football and if Qatari outfit Al-Gharrafa, who have made a bit for Odemwinge, are determined to sign him then they'll have the financial clout to persuade JP to say 'Thank you very much'.

Can't say I agree mate. In Odemwingie we have a potential match winner everytime he steps on the pitch. "Take out the hatrick at Wolves" ! Why? This was a great achievement and I'm sure it will be many years before and Albion player matches it. Of the other 6 goals - Blackburn, Liverpool, QPR away? 7 points but to name a few. Also his performance against Newcastle away in which he scored - then set up the winning goal!
He cost us around 2 mil.....................why should we sell a player of his caliber - even at the age of 31! We may be offered around 4-5 mil if we're lucky - then we only have Long and need to find areplacement at fairly short notice. Will his replacement gel to in team, and is Long ready to shoulder the responsibility.?
Dangerous game in my opinion and one which could well back fire. My guess is he will still be worth 2 mil at the end of the season - then is the time to consider!

I understand your point. However, only Steve Clark can prove weather or not he can get the best out of Pete - only he can be the judge of that and deserves the opportunity to do so - I will back him whatever he decides. I can only state the facts.......does he cause a problem in the dressing room? Who knows. Was it evident last season? if so, I'll take another season please! This may well be his last season - and if SC needs to stroke is ego, or anything else in that matter! - if he does manage to get another 10-12 goals out of him this season, and other players chip in, we could well be looking at another solid season!!

I must admit I'm in two minds about Odemwingie. He's lazy, selfish, needs to learn the offside rule, and over a season probably wastes more chances than he converts.

If there was someone in the wings to replace him, I'd say let him go and cash in. But we do need someone lined up.

Could that be Shane Long? He scored eight in 24 last season, quite a few coming off the bench, whereas Peter managed ten in 25 - not too different. Is ten goals a good enough return when you think Danny Graham at Swansea managed 12 and Grant Holt at Norwich managed 15? Can Clark put instill some belief in Long?

For a club with ambition, I think on balance ten is not enough for your first choice striker. So with due thanks for a hat trick against Wolves, overall, I'd say tarra a bit, Pete.

Pete is the best striker we have had at this club in a long while, he has that air of unpredictability about him which none of our other strikers offer, and most of all he scares defenders.

Premier league defenders are scared of strikers who can run with the ball at pace and thats what PO does.

We'd be silly to sell him in my opinion.

I must admit I'm in two minds about Odemwingie. He's lazy, selfish, needs to learn the offside rule, and over a season probably wastes more chances than he converts.

If there was someone in the wings to replace him, I'd say let him go and cash in. But we do need someone lined up.

Could that be Shane Long? He scored eight in 24 last season, quite a few coming off the bench, whereas Peter managed ten in 25 - not too different. Is ten goals a good enough return when you think Danny Graham at Swansea managed 12 and Grant Holt at Norwich managed 15? Can Clark put instill some belief in Long?

For a club with ambition, I think on balance ten is not enough for your first choice striker. So with due thanks for a hat trick against Wolves, overall, I'd say tarra a bit, Pete.


Yes a first choice Striker who was forced out to the right wing and still made double figures.

If we're to progress as a club then we need players like Peter Odemwingie on board. Regardless of his age, Pete oozes quality with the ball and although he may be selfish, he's a striker, and naturally, strikers are selfish and greedy. Pete for two seasons running has broke the 10 goal barrier and you would have to question where we would be if we didn't have him. Granted, his effort and application appeared questionable at times last season and he may have not hit the heights  he set himself the season before hand but how many did reach the standards they set themselves? Odemwingie was another shackled by Roy's demands and at times that showed, but he still had the quality to get us ten goals.

Every player is for sale for the right price. We don't want to let our best players go by any means but if the price is right and should they actually want to leave the club then there is a good chance they will go, its just the way football is these days.

We need to build as a club and that means improving on what we already have not by weakening the side.

Its not ridiculous at all. I don't agree but I see his point.

Im sure Fergie said something similar about Berbatov when he scored 5. Something along the lines of its ok scoring 3 4 or 5 in big victories but he needs to be able to grab the important winners when the team needs it.

If Odemwinge played a blinder once ever blue moon with nothing in between it would be a reasonable comment, and if thats how he feels then its his opinion.

Replacing a player like Odemwingie will be very difficult and having said we are keeping him, the club need a big bid to explain to the fans why he was sold. Id understand selling for 8 but we need a good replacement and cant let this drag too far into the summer.

no one has said he needs to score a goal every game, I'm saying half his goals came in a two games, we don't need sone who might pop up with a brace or hat trick every no and again we need someone who can play consistently, Pete doesn't, and to mention messi is pathetic, he scores braces and hat tricks through out a season not in two games and then goes missing for 10. Peres 5 goals that he scored when he decided to turn up helped us win 2 games, I'd rather have a player who can perform consistently and help us win more games even if it means he scores less goals.

If we were offered 8m and decided to invest that money (plus the rest required) in a striker who is younger and can score goals in the PL (Steven Fletcher) then it would be a smart piece of business. However, there aren't many strikers who are going to be available for 8-13m who have scored as many goals as Pete in 2 seasons.

Without a doubt. Genuine PL strikers like PO are like gold dust. I'd far rather have him than money in the bank. And I notice the 'grab the money and reinvest' comments are very short of giving alternatives to PO. There simply is not a large supply of quality strikers for a club our size, and with our economy, who are guaranteed to do the job PO has been doing well for the last two seasons for the money we can pay.

We were very lucky to land PO. If it was that easy to replace him we would already have had another player of his calibre on the books, but we do not, for the obvious reason there is none to be had.

You cannot stay up without a genuine premier league striker. Pete is the only striker we have who has consistently shown that he is up to that standard.

I don't understand the general dislike of him, seems that much of the 'wanting to move' in the transfer window is agent driven.

The Odemwinge rumours just won't go away. Tonight it is again reported that the oil rich Qatari side Al-Gharafa have made a bid for him. Is this the same story we read about previously, or is it a new bid? If it is, and money talks eventually, then Odemwinge could be on his way.
West Brom manager Steve Clarke says the Baggies have turned down a bid for striker Peter Odemwingie from a non-English club.
The Nigeria international, contracted at the Hawthorns until June 2014, is thought to be on the radar of Qatari side Al-Gharafa this summer.
Clarke says Albion have rejected an offer for the 31-year-old, who joined the Midlanders from Lokomotiv Moscow in 2010.
He told Sky Sports: "There was one bid came in for Peter. It wasn't from an English club and we turned it down, so I think that says enough."
Odemwingie has also been linked with Fulham and Sunderland this summer and Clarke accepts his key players will inevitably attract transfer talk.
"I think you're always going to have speculation about your good players," he added.

I said as much a few days ago and was told to stop scaremongering.

I, more than anyone, don't want Odemwingie to leave. However I think it's a distinct possibility given the striking options we have on offer.

Peter has historically not reacted positively to competition for his place. From nuggets I've heard over the past 15 months I sense there is a slight unease between him and the club.

I'm not know and I'm not trying to worry people. I don't want Peter to go. His record over the last 2 years speak for itself.

Either West ham, media darlings and willing to spend 10m plus on Jarvis or Martin 'pays over the odds' O'neill in the running to sign him.

Dont want to see Pete go AT ALL, but if these two clubs get into a bidding war policed by JP we could be looking at a ridiculous offer we cant turn down.


Jeremy i am sure will want to remain in the greed league next season with the extra mega bucks from TV rights to be had. I cant see him at any price selling any of our stars to jeopardise whats on offer next season in the  money world

Nonsensical to let him go.In 12 months time we would then need at least 2 front line strikers as we will almost certainly not have Lukaku and possibly 3 as Rosenberg is an unknown quantity at this level!

I said as much a few days ago and was told to stop scaremongering.

I, more than anyone, don't want Odemwingie to leave. However I think it's a distinct possibility given the striking options we have on offer.
Peter has historically not reacted positively to competition for his place. From nuggets I've heard over the past 15 months I sense there is a slight unease between him and the club.

I'm not know and I'm not trying to worry people. I don't want Peter to go. His record over the last 2 years speak for itself.

We have several forward options but Pete is the only one that is really effective in that right wing position. If we are to continue with the 433 system it would be madness to let him go without a direct replacement.

There might be interest from West Ham and Sunderland but neither will be prepared to stump up the sort of fee JP will ask for and unless Peter demands a move we are under no pressure to sell. Not going to happen this window.
West Ham are after every man and his dog, all summer its been them after so and so. Sunderland may be a  more serious club after PO - but I doubt JP will sell.

The money quoted for Fletcher, Jarvis and Dawson just shows how ridiculous some clubs are run and makes me feel so much better about how ours is.

I've just got to the point with Pete,Mulumbu,Morrison and any other of our better players that unless i see a transfer request i dont bother reading too much into these things.Clear as day we are a buliding club not a selling club so for me its a non starter,with respect neither Sunderland or West Ham are much of a move up from us if at all are they?

Exactly right that is Dexy, if a player is successful he will always be linked with moves elsewhere. I would expect the likes of Sunderland and West Ham to be interested in him but they missed their chance when he signed for us originally, as soon as he did well for us and scored goals he was always going to be out of their reach unless they offer us stupid money.

We win either way either there is no bid we keep a good player or there is a ridicluous bid we get a huge amount of money for a player for whom we have adequate cover in the squad. However for what it is worth I think there might be interest but nothing very substantial.

With Long, Lukaku, Rosenberg and Fortune in the squad I would imagine if we recieve a bid of over 10 million it would have to be considered.

All four players make up very balanced options upfront and ones which most sides would give their right arm for.

All the poster is suggesting is if the price is over inflated we would consider due to the options we have.

I cant see any club willing to pay the money we would want for Odemwingie anyway.

depends what you mean by "proving themselves" as Opta stats actually says we are on of the teams LEAST reliant on their strikers (Where be Dragon? ;D) anyway, Long got eight and Fortune got 4(?) in all competitions, not bad for having essentially half seasons. Rosenberg is proven in leagues just as hard as ours. and of course there's Lukaku, so yeah it's not exactly like under RDM where the Pete was the ONLY forward goal scorer most of the time.

Well to be fair strikers dont finish 10th and 11th in the league..teams do. So as long as the team is performing to near its potential and it obviously has the last two seasons then really you would probably have to say we have adequate cover. Thats not to say of course that at least one of them in any given season has to step up and bag a few goals or they all have to spread the goals between them.

Selling Pete would be suicide. Every team is looking for a striker who can hit double figures at least. He's managed it two seasons running. Lukaku and Rosenberg have the potential to do well but have proved nothing in this league yet. Without Pete I reckon we'd be in the Championship now.

So if the fee is not a 'crazy' one at least on a par with Fletcher then there is no reason to even consider selling our first 'proper' Premiership striker. It would be madness to sell him anyway but a stupid fee could see major reinvestment maybe ?

Personally, I'm really excited by our attacking options but Pete is still the number one proven marksman and so to sell him would see us seriously weakened.

I thinks our fans are overly concerned when our players are linked to other clubs. When is the last time we have sold a key player whilst we've been a premiership club? Earnshaw maybe. Really we've never sold our best players when we've been a premiership club - If we do it will be for ridiculous money.

If we got an offer of over 8million I think we would find it hard to turn it down. He is a great player but one of his main attributes is pace, which will no doubt start to decline soon when you consider his age. I doubt it's true though - Odemwingie isn't that tall and last time I checked Big Sam was their manager.  :D

Personally I think Odemwingie is better than Long up top, but Long is many times worse than Odemwingie on the right so Peter ends up playing on the right by default.

However, I believe in the new system with more or less three centerforwards on the left, center and right none of them will play as a traditional winger. That is why we are looking at fast fullbacks like Martin Olsson.

A final point, Liverpool made sure there was no space for Odemwingie to operate in on the right. They had a lot of bodies there so there simply was nowhere for him to run and speed is PO's best weapon as we know. Gera and Ridgewell had a far easier time going forward as the Liverpool right wasn't as congested. Unfortunately Gera looks to have lost a step, if not his quality, after the injuries.

I dont really compare Long and PO as centre forwards as they are totally different types of players each able to do a good job there in their own way. I think a lot will depend on the tactics for any given match as to how SC uses them

I agree with everything you posted apart from Gera losing a step. It's going to take Gera a few weeks to get back to his best. He's had an awful time with injuries, but as he doesn't rely on pace more on his natural ability and intelligence, he should get back to his best soon.

We've waited years to find a goalscorer in this division, now we have one we're not suddenly going to let him go. Even though we live in an inflated market, I just cannot see clubs willing to stump up the money we would want for a 31 year old. If they did, well, then, they're just plain stupid to be honest. It is, in my opinion, that Peter Odemwingie is without doubt the best player at this football club and keeping him should have been another priority this summer. The fact he signed an improved contract last season means we hold all the cards and if West Ham and Sunderland are serious about him then they better make their move quickly.

We sold goalscorers in recent times and never replaced them. I don't think JP would wish to make that mistake at a time when his reputation is high with the supporters.

People are confusing what he's worth as a player with what he's worth to the club. As a player 5 million is about right, but he's worth at least twice that to the club. A bag of crisps is only worth about 50p but if you wanted to buy a pack from a starving man then you'd have to pay a lot more.

Like people have mentioned, what he is actually worth as a player isnt the same as what he is worth to west brom. We have no financial need to sell him, and we all know what our jezza is like, so id guess the club values him around 12 million? Unless somebody panics and offers over the odds for him, i cant see him going anywhere.

I would be slightly worried if we sold him at this later stage of the window, but with how DA opperates i think we could get an adequate replacement in.

Im not that worried about goals this year as the fridge looks dangerous and i think will easily make double figures if stays fit. Long will probably get the same amount as he did last year as it seems SC is ging to use him alot but as more of a holding striker and the midfield has been chipping in lots of goals for seasons now.

I'm slightly confused why people think we'd sell our only proven goalscorer.

Who else is going to provide the goals?

Long - As much as i admire his effort and contribution to the team, there's still a question mark as to whether he can score regularly in the PL.

Fortune - A very good player who contributes well to the team, but isn't the type of player who puts the ball in the net often.

Lukaku - looks very positive, and will cause teams problems, we shall see how well he does across a whole season.

Rosenberg - yet to see him really so can't really be judged.

For me, we have to keep Pete, and see no reason why the club would sell him, especially so close to the end of the window.

All this talk of pete 'wanting' to leave. In the last year theres been firm bids from Wigan and Al Gharafa, confirmed interest from Sunderland, Fulham and West Ham plus rumoured interest from Arsenal and a host of other clubs. If Odemwingie doesnt want to be here he would of left by now. Thats not to say if someone comes in tomorrow and offers gim 80k a week he wont leave but I cant see why people think he is angling for a move. Players hold all the power with transfers and Pete has never asked to leave. Unless someone comes in with silly money he will still be here next week, same with all our other players

On another website it says he wants out'don't shoot the messenger.
The papers on Friday said we had a full squad to pick from,then on Saturday we here ODW picked up an injury on Thursday.
When all the players are fit i see Rom and Rosenberg as first choice and given his past record he dosen't seem the type to fight for his place.
The team have tremendous team spirit apart from ODW.
It's great to have 5 players to choose from upfront but only if those players want to be here and give of their best when on the pitch.

Regarding the question he is our only proven prem goalscorer i have no doubts we will score more goals this season with or without ODW.

I saw CL and Steve Madeley tweeting about this last night. The assumption that Pete wants to leave came from some poorly researched journalist on talksport. Unfortunately, with the way the world of football news is currently, this will filter through to the press and become a 'story'.

So some lazy talksport 'journalist' has been reading some 'Nigerian blog' or something flogging PO off to 'Arsenal' or somewhere as their solution to their 'goal scoring crisis'. Then the bored/ADHD Twits pick up on lazy talksport 'journalist' blathering and then suddenly PO is 'lazy', 'greedy' and 'has no team spirit'.

i do get you about the contract thing but if you wanted out then surely you wouldnt sign especially an extension as it would harm your chances of a club getting you on a free. if pete is on his way as is getting suggested i dont think we would miss him like we would of last year, although he has been a fantastic player for us. we have 5 quality strikers vying for 1 or 2 positions and trying to keep them all happy is going to be difficult. in a way it would make sense but i hope he stays and i think he will, although its proberbly because im used to the speculation surrounded pete in every window.

Odemwingie has lost a great deal of playing time in the past year or two because of injuries. As he is now at an age when players seem to get a growing amount of injuries it may be a good time to cash in - while he is worth something.

We should only even think about selling Pete if we have a replacement lined up before the end of the transfer window. And he would have to be a 15 goals a season man. The only one that springs to mind is Lukaku.

From what I know some of the rumours about Odemwingie not being popular within the dressing room have come from someone who people believe is 'ITK' off this site. 

I know for a fact this is complete garbage, anyone who frequents the Mailbox regularly on a lunch time will see Odemwingie having lunch with 4-5 team mates, I've heard suggestions on here that he doesn't get on with Long when again I know for a fact that he and Long along with Thomas and Dorrans were out in Mayfair not so long ago.  Furthermore there was an interview with him on the official site, he was asked about who his best friend was at the club, his reply was... Shane Long!

A small group of people have an agenda against him, I don't understand it and its pathetic.  I've heard there is an interview with him in one of the papers either today or tomorrow which is his take on all the speculation surrounding him over the summer, I'm sure its going to be another story which is going to make these 'ITK'ers look silly.

This is such a myth, the fact he got progressively bigger moves hardly indicates his form dipping at all his clubs, then at Lokomotiv, well it didn't seem the greatest of places for him. Then at us it was always unlikely he'd match the exceedingly high standard of the first year but he's hardly played badly for us. Indeed the only player we've had to hit double figures in consecutive seasons in the top division in however many years.

The guy's honest about his intentions, that rubs a few people up the wrong way. All he's saying is what a lot of players will be doing behind the scenes when they're publicly saying how much they love a club.

I appreciate his honesty. Are you always 100% happy and satisfied at your work place? I think he acted properly.  Would you prefer players to be dishonest, perhaps Paul Robinson is more of your cup of tea, spent a summer trying to engineer a move for himself in a distasteful fashion and when those moves collapsed released a statement about his loyalty to the club.

I would rather he kept it to himself personally but it isnt a big deal. It does seem drama follows him every where but I have always said he is a cracking player and maybe this is what you have to accept when you have a player with his level of ability.

Do we believe he had a crisis in confidence? Well he is a confidence player but im not sure it really washes with me and im sure an offer from the middle east would be tempting for him to allow him to have a final money spinning move although maybe he did just like the idea of playing with less stress.

The talk did dry up very quickly though and at least he did not go on strike. Asking for a move is one thing, demanding one is another. He fell on the right side of the line so hopefully he can have one last big season before we maybe grant him his wish of retirement in the middle east. Would be a waste with his talent though to leave Europe in my opinion.

I totally respect him for being honest and most people at some point are disillusioned with work, irrespective of what career they are in.

However, he maybe should have kept quiet about this because the he is under scrutiny all the time.

If he has a bad game it will be "well he wants to leave again" or "he never wanted to stay really" etc.

Sometimes it's not always the best thing to publicly say these things especially in his position.

I believe he is happy here, I just hope he's not turned on the minute something goes wrong.

I have no problem with Odemwingie or any other player for wanting to leave the Hawthorns. It is their profession and they are entitled to make decisions that affect their livelihood just like the rest of us. However because of the long term contracts they enjoy they cannot just up and leave without compensation being agreed between the clubs.

I have nothing but contempt for the likes of Dempsey or Davies who refuse to play but where a player is being reasonable and accepts that the club has a right to negotiate compensation and honours their contract both in the letter and spirit then I have no problem with them leaving.
 
In someways I would rather footballers told the truth and did not feel the need to pretend that there are always footballing reasons for their decisions. In most instances it is about economics or lifestyle choices which is fair enough because we all do that I have never felt the need to spout spurious claptrap  about wanting work with a particular manager or pretend I have some lifetime affinity to some obscure PLC when I have changed jobs why should footballers?

Ok i have got it wrong.

Honest as the day is long our Pete.  Ok now?  :)

Another Paul Robinson,we will get this every window.

It's the complete opposite to Robinson though, Robinson used to preach his love and loyalty for the club in interviews whilst trying to engineer moves away behind the scenes at the exact same time. Odemwingie has just been honest that he considered leaving at one point.

People go on about no characters in football and such, but whenever someone says something that isn't the party line they get people complaining about it! As far as I can see Odemwingie has been entirely honest in his entire stay here. Maybe he should just learn to answer all questions with "I'm happy to stay forever". But then of course if he does move, you get the exact same people saying a players word means nothing these days!

Very different personalities. I don't think PO is trying to 'work an angle'. He is simply a bit of drama and wants to feel appreciated. McAuley is far stabler emotionally.

I don't see where people have bent over backwards to defend Peter Odemwingie. In-fact, I think its the opposite as he's harshly criticised in my opinion. I think we have to accept that when we have the better players at our club, they might come with baggage and therefore the transfer rumours which surround them every summer might be taken out of context.

Peter Odemwingie is without doubt the best player at this football club and we must keep hold of him at all costs. He has proved that he can reach ten goals a season or more and that is so important to us. Without the goals of Odemwingie we could well have been playing last season in the championship. For that reason alone, and the fact he is important to us is why we should lay off him, especially if he feels he doesn't have long left in the game and fancies one money spinning deal. As mentioned previously, I appreciate his honesty that he asked to move but then when he received the answer he's carried on with his football professionally, playing an important part in our opening two home games of the season.

Credit for Clarke for turning him around and keeping him here. Many posters on the board said that the appointment of Clarke would force our better players away but as many thought at the time, that won't be the case and Clarke has proved that.

What annoys me is the welcome we gave him was better than that given to any player in our history.
At the end of that season he had scored 15 goals and asked for a better contract.Fair enough,i don't begrudge him that,no one has scored that many goals for us in the prem.

So he signs another contract,4 years was it,then towards the end of that season he starts becoming disinterested again and there were rumours,and i say only rumours of our players not getting on with him and a dust up with SC.

Now the window has shut and he knows he is stuck here until at least January,he has said he wanted to move all along,which proves that there was unrest,but say's it was because he didn't know if he could perform at this level,which i think is rubbish.He wants more money,he might as well say it.

Now,i think he will put a shift in so as to sell himself to another club,so be prepared for more of this in January or next summer.

Personally,if he is on form i would play him,but i would search out a replacement for him the sooner the better.

This guy is one bad egg.


Good Albion player yes,Albion hero,never.

I feel sorry for people like Brunt and Long who work hard for the team and have never asked for a move,and yet get continually picked on by some of our fans,while Mr Odemwingie can't be talked about.

Lets face it there is no real loyalty in football any more. Not like in the days of Astle, Brown and Cantello etc. where they stayed with clubs because they became part of that club.

You cant blame PO, or any of the others (Jonas for instance......he is trying to ramp up his contract). Just celebrate we have some decent players who can bring The Albion a bit of success!

Only through what has been reported by Pete himself or his agent.

There was i recall a fan from this site who met Pete in a service station after a game against Wigan,and was blanked by him(Pete) and told to go away by his minders.

If you watch his body language in games it's all about him,not the team.If he misses a chance his head goes down and he mopes for a few minutes.

To be fair though that was a great ball against Everton.

I am Albion through and through and no player is bigger than this club,so if i see the best squad we have had since 1978 in danger of being disrupted i get annoyed.

For all we know Chris Brunt or anybody else may have thought about leaving this summer, only difference is Pete come out and told us. Jonas Olsson definately thought about leaving so whats the difference. The bit about Wigan if true is not nice at all and Im not going to stick up for him and say he's a footballer and that because that doesnt excuse rudeness to a fan who has travelled away.

But I cant see how that one instance can make him a bad egg at a club, everything else are just rumours with no substance at all in my opinion.

The January Window: Newspaper will create rumours using quotes from a Nigerian papers uncle's daughter claiming to be from Peter Odemwingie to unsettle Pete and sell their papers.

Maybe we shouldn't believe them and just concentrate on keeping Pete at the club. He was given a deserved new contract last season as a reward for his very good performances. During the summer he wanted to try something new and asked about a transfer. The answer was no, he's got his head down and continued playing for the club. No dramatics like handing in a transfer request and refusing to play. He's got his head down and played a vital part in our opening two home fixtures.

The fact people can call Peter Odemwingie a bad egg on very little foundation is at best strange to be honest.

The way I see it the people who defend Odemwingie aren't bending over backwards at all, it's the people who slag him off who are bending over backwards. The defenders don't have to put much effort in at all, defending him is very easy as there's very little evidence of Odemwingie being the horrible person that his 'critics' make him out to be. His 'haters' seem to be constantly searching for any little angle to have a go at him, any vantage point they can snipe from, any dubious rumour they can choose to believe, anything he does or says that they can completely twist around to be something negative... When that article was published on Monday they must have wet themselves in excitement as they now had some fantastic ammunition to use against him, pure gold, words straight from the horse's mouth that they can morph into any shape that matches and suits their views. Why do they do it? Are they just negative and cynical people? Are they gullible and have that opinion because they believe all the groundless rumours and accusations about him? Does drama and scandal excitement them, something which a renegade player would provide? Any reason could be consciously or subconsciously, but whatever the reason is, I can't understand why they're are so hell-bent on making him out to be as detestable a person as they can. There's no logic to it.

Totally agree! Wait and see what happens when January transfer window opens! I'm afraid he isn't the GOD that many think he is on here!
Maybe not, but I'm afraid however much you want him to be he isn't the DEVIL that many think he is on here!


To the 'Odemwingie is a bad egg' crowd, is there any chance that you're reading that article and instead of seeing what's written, you're seeing what you want to see? You think he's a bad egg so you want to see him saying something in the article that proves that he is, problem is he didn't, but that doesn't matter because you can twist his words so in your mind he did.

In a way its a shame that we spend so much time debating the loyalty of what for me is one of our best ever players, and I go back to the 70,s. Wish we would spend a bit more time debating how we might get the best from him in this new look squad because one thing is for sure he is not the only great striker we now have, which he probably was when he arrived. Just my opinion.

Having read the article it seems to me that he was concerned that at his age he couldn't perform at a high enough level for us. Steve Clarke has obviously reassured him that he can and that's that.
 I don't understand the "he lacks committment" etc comments from some people....it appears he didn't want to playing for a side he couldn't perform for...that sounds like a decent honest player to me.

He's thirty-ish, a "rootless cosmopolitan citizen" with no strong connection to WBA, or for that matter, the UK.  He/his agent obviously had some tentatative contact about a semi-retirement package in the middle east to set him up for life, but nothing happened, so he's stayed for now.  He won't be a top line player for much longer, so let's just make the most of him this season.  Fine by me.

I don't think I'm breaking any rules by saying this, if I am then it will get removed and I'll take my punishment from Phil (:o) ... no doubt people will laugh this off but it's just something I've noticed. Peter wouldn't be the first black / mixed race striker we've had at the club that a number of fans just don't like. Now I'm not saying Albion fans in general are racist, but it's something I've noticed especially from the older generation - the younger generation seem a lot more accepting of Pete in my opinion. It seems to me that unless a black / mixed race player runs around like a headless chicken (Mulumbu for example), he is pigeon holed as the "lazy black lad".

Just think about how many players of this description have, at some point or another, been labeled this way. Odemwingie, Jerome Thomas, Nathan Ellington, Luke Moore, Somen Tchoyi, Ishmael Miller, Jason Roberts, Diomansy Kamara, to name a few. Even Fabien de Freitas still gets mentioned, out of all the dross we had in the 90's why him? Now some of these players may deserve to be labeled lazy, but as I said it's just something I've noticed. Whether this is intentional, unintentional or just that these players fail to live up to the high standards set by the Three Degrees decades ago, I really don't know.

And before anyone bangs the "PC gone mad" drum, I am far from being the kind of person who is offended by everything in the world so let's not go down that road. It's just an observation and I'm entitled to express it.

How many of those players though could you explain away fans frustrations with another reason?

Peter Odemwingie and Diomansy Kamara have both been very good on the pitch but both seem to carry a lot of extra off the pitch with constant news stories of wanting to leave. That will inevitably make some fans moan.

Nathan Ellington and Luke Moore always looked fed up when playing, maybe because neither player actually loved playing football from what I can see and both off the pitch appear the quite type (Ellington certainly seemed too nice for the game after he converted to Islam). Ishmael Miller was the nice lad who would do stupid things, like when he had a tantrum in the box for missing - as the ball fell to his feet in space. The amount of times he would have is head in his hands even tough the play was still going on didnt help.

Jason Roberts you can put squarely at the feet of Megson - he said he had a bad attitude and not lazy, although that appears to be maybe a little wide of the mark with how the rest of his career ha panned out (seemingly the model pro).

I dont think too many call Thomas any lazier than Dorrans and Tchoyi was always known more for "not knowing what he was about to do" rather than being lazy - something it was hard to disagree with, and was part of hi charm.

Im not saying your point doesnt have some merit, maybe there is an element there of a stereotype more prevalent in a bygone era, but I think it maybe has more to do with footballs fans lazy analysis of the reason a player acts/plays like he does. The fact we have only named attacking players is probably very telling as well - attacking positions where players are usually more creative often get more criticism for not putting enough in and thus being called lazy.

People don't like him for the following reasons:

-He is the highest paid player at the club.
-He sometimes looks like he's not interested.
-He is constantly linked with a move away.
-He has openly admitted he would move to a bigger club.
-He didn't quite meet the standards of his first year in his second year.
-He is right footed and always seems to use his left (freak)

Race has absolutely nothing to do with it. The thing is really good players completely divide opinion.

It's completely unfair to suggest fans who don't like him do so because of his race. Despite liking the bloke myself  - there are plenty of perfectly legitimate reasons to dislike him.

How much does Brunt get slagged of and he is soooo white?

But in reality that price is going to be very inflated. Pete is our highest paid player in history and still has a year and a half left on his deal so for a start that pushes his value above the reporters 3 million, not to mention in the summer the club were believed to value him at around 10+ million.

Also I doubt that Pete really wants to leave, he's pretty happy here, plays games regularly, has just got married, bought a house in the area and his wife is due to have their baby in the next few weeks. Also to whoever mentioned his family are from the North, I think they are Manchester way as Pete has mentioned in the past his father in law is a City fan so I can't imagine living down here is a real problem.

I dunno why people gobble up this kind of nonsense time and time again. It's what journo's do. They bait people knowing full well which players are popular/good in each team. All they want is an emotional reaction out of people and their job is done.

However....
Newcastle may possibly offer more than us?
He may play as a striker
Its his last big contract
If we hold him his value (in pounds) will only deflate from here on in

Not saying he will go , just that it could be a possibility that our best striker ever in the prem (fact) could leave.

I think most teams have figured out that they only have to put a couple of players on him when he has the ball as he hardly ever passes. Although against Fulham he did make one or two passes more than normal.

I'm not his biggest fan so I wouldn't lose any sleep if he left, but I still think his best position is up top on his own. He can solo to his hearts content then.

Pardew apparently has just they are not interested in Odemwingie, said they wont be signing anybody over the age of 30 or something along those lines.

I hope he does stay and think he will unless we have somebody better to replace him, he can drive you mad with his decision making, he can be non existent for 80 minutes but he is the one player in our squad (maybe Lukaku too) who can produce something out of nothing, do something a bit different. Attacking wise, Gera, Brunt, Morrison, Dorrans, Thomas, Long and Fortune are all good players and they do the jobs in the orthodox manner and it produces results a lot of the time, where as i think Odemwingie and Lukaku are instinct players and i like people like that so for me and the rest of the first team players, unless we have somebody better lined up, then dont sell them!

I think the "we don't buy players over 30" thing is more to do with selling on rather than anything else. If you pay big money for a player over 30 you are unlikely to make it back if you decide to try and sell that same player on again.

I don't think Newcastle see themselves as a club in danger of relegation so don't need to buy a quick fix player, preferring to spend decent money on a player of around 25 yrs old, so if it doesn't work out for them they can have a realistic chance of selling on and not lose too much if any money on the deal.

If a first teamer (ie Odemwingie) were to leave us to go there it would say a lot about them as a person.

In the unlikely event that we accepted a completely stupid bid (not impossible QPR are in full blown panic mode so the sky could be the limit) they would have the devil's own job to persaude the player to join in their current position. This smacks of the old West Ham ploy of leaking ambitious names to the press left, right and centre to give the impression to their fans that they are trying to do something about the mess they are in but in reality they are trying to find a few bargain basement signings to shore things up a bit e.g. Ben Haim

Yep, makes great sense, and changes my thinking about old 'Arry a bit. It's also vaguely reminiscent of his smoke-and-mirrors approach to the managerial job market, when he essentially used the Ukraine national job opening as a bargaining chip to land the Rangers job: http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2012/nov/23/harry-redknapp-ukraine-qpr

He's a fairly transparent actor, really, feigning interest in buying one thing in order to unsettle the real targets of his interest. With the P.O. feint, he also as others have said can try to unsettle his next big competitor, perhaps hoping to weaken WBA's team spirit a bit.

I think this comes down to the London Media, they probably think QPR is a stepup, they love Harry because he is media friendly, always got something for them, he keeps them in jobs basically! and i think they report favourably on him because of that (i personally quite like Redknapp as he is a bit of a character)

What they forget is there are two clubs and a player need to make a transfer and if they did there research they would know the one dealing with funds at Albion is none other than Jeremy Peace! JP wouldnt get rid of anybody on the cheap and as we have no reason to sell or trim the wage bill, etc who we sell would be upto us unless a bigger or better club comes in and in maybe a reality check but QPR just because they are in London and spend their money stupidly, doesnt make them bigger or better!

They say January is the silly time  for transfer fees, any team trying to buy a player off Albion its the silly time as JP charges them top buck whether its January or June, its makes no odds to him, he gets the best deal whether hot or cold outside!

Could Odemwingie soon be on his way? QPR are being persistent, and have plenty of reddies to back up their interest.

Sky Sports understands that Queens Park Rangers have firmed up their interest in Peter Odemwingie and made a firm bid.
The 31-year-old forward, who was born in Uzbekistan, was left out of West Brom's squad which lost 3-2 at Reading.
QPR made an enquiry about the Nigeria international earlier this week and now they have followed that up with a firm offer.
West Brom are yet to respond, but QPR are hopeful that they can succeed with a proposed deal within the next week.
Odemwingie has played just nine league games under Steve Clarke so far this term, scoring four goals

I still find it difficult to understand why we want to sell one of our best players? Yes he's getting on a bit, but he still offers far too much for us to discard him now.
We don't, apart from Dorrans, Clarke has said we're not selling any of the first team squad.

Of course money talks, but unless its silly figures ill be surprised if anyone goes

Correct, why would we ever sell him at the moment ? You don't sell your best players unless it's something ridulous like the money for Fletcher/Carroll/Javis/Joe Allen etc

I think you are somewhat missing the point we'd still be bringing in a player that is no better than what we have. We need to improve the squad. Hoilett's natural position is where Morrison plays, again Morrison is the better player.

I am not missing the point at all.

Yes we need to improve the squad, however Odemwingie is not first choice centre forward and there are certainly better options out wide.

Personally I think Odemwingie is a better option up front than Long, I don't think Clarke agrees, that is why I would not be surprised if Odemwingie did move on.

Hoilett is a wide midfield/winger, 10 years younger then PO & a very good player, I'd have him at the drop of a hat, excellent prospect.

If we set up correctly you wouldn't necessarily need him to help defensively he and the loan striker could be left forward as outlets.

I agree there are some games and some situations where you wouldn't want Odemwingie but there are also others where he is a huge threat.

You don't get anywhere in football selling your best players and what does that say to the likes of Jonas Olsson, Youssouf Mulumbu and co when they see that we are selling our best players? It'll be a complete lack of ambition for me as Peter Odemwingie is without doubt the best player at this football club. People talk about his pace diminishing as he grows with age but for me it isn't just pace he offers us, he has ability on the ball and can carry the ball beating players with ease, something which our other players struggle with, add to that he has the ability to produce goals which for me means we would be mad to sell him.

I do think we'll sell him in the summer but he'll be a massive loss for me because I don't think there are many Odemwingie's around and if they are around, they're usually out of our price range.

I can see they would be tempted to sell with Pete's age if a big bid came in but what would that say about our club ? , we bang the drum about being safe money wise and building a squad so i for one would be gutted if any of our better players left let alone our best forward.

Mackie is exactly the kind of striker we don't need, all toil and no quality. If you want to be midtable plus, you need players with technical ability. Hoilett isn't good enough, imho, to have a real impact on games which is why he can't make a struggling QPR team in the relegation zone. We don't need any QPR reserves, we need players who have that bit of quality to their games. Odemwingie will be very difficult indeed to replace, players that can decide PL games by their own skill are very rare and very valuable.

Taken from this site last season when Blackburn were relegated, seems, like me, others rate Hoilett too, certainly wouldn't dismiss him out of hand just because he currently can't get in QPRs team, any number of reasons why!

6) Junior Hoilett

Junior Hoilett has been in demand for quite a while, almost leaving Blackburn Rovers in January. Tottenham and Arsenal have been heavily linked, while German giant Bayern Munich were also linked a month back. The Canadian winger is only 21 and has huge potential, scoring seven times and providing five assists for Rovers last season, and it is no wonder the big clubs are interested.

That was last season... Hoilett hasn't exactly kicked on to and produce a stunning season this season has he? Ok, I think he was injured for a while, but as someone said, Hoilett is one of those players that flatters to deceive.

I liked him last season tbh, and even suggested him as a potential player for us to pick up should Blackburn go down, but I don't think he is the type of player that would fit in with Clarke's way of playing football. We have a slow back line that lies deep, and two defensive midfielders protecting the back four. We need four powerful, skillful, fast, players that are capable of creating something by their own speed and skill. If they are diminutive they need superior skills and I don't think Hoilett fits the bill for a top ten team, which is our aim isn't it.

It depends on whether he is adequately replaced.  Ince seems destined to go elsewhere but Philips would be interesting.  Probably better value from overseas though and I'm sure DA has lined up some potentials.

Just don't sell him at all, it is an absolutely massive gamble to try and find someone to replace him.

Its a serious sign of lack of ambition.

He is one of, if not our best player. As Liam says you don't get nowhere selling your best players.

We need to start playing him more otherwise he will want out and rightly so, i know he has had an "injury in the past few games " apparently,  but even when available we have not used him enough and i could certainly understand if it was his decision to leave (except to QPR).

I'd like to think we can send a little statement on Wednesday to show we have ambitions of winning silverware and that we are a much better option than QPR.

I know it's a tall order but it's what we should be aiming for. We don't have many of those types of players atm.

*I am more than happy with Odemwingie and Lukaku.
*Morrison can play well at times but I didn't like his recent disappearance in November and December (these are not unheard of), then again he could have been carrying a knock but it was good to see him back to his best at Reading. Anyway, he needs stiff competition to keep him on his toes.
*Long has the pace but his skill set is so limited, still maybe we should try him on the wing.
*Rosenberg is struggling very badly to come to terms with English football, maybe it's best to let him return to Germany/Holland in the summer. And to me he lacks the pace needed, as do Gera and Dorrans, who of course is on his way anyway.
*JT is waning.   

I'd like for us to find a Moses type of player or two. We almost got him before he opted for bleepin Wigan.

Sky Sources !!!!!!  ::) reckon that QPR will come back in with another bid and if the clubs agree a deal then the player is interested in talking to them.

Not sure who are the worst for this, Sky sources or Talksport ?

IF and its a BIG BIG IF this is true and he does want to talk to them then for me i'd be more disappointed in the player than the club for selling, a club struggling at the bottom and hopefully going back to the Championship next season or a settled Premier League club slowly and steadily building, if the money is attracting him that much then he can go.

I think there is two sides to this, personally i dont think we should sell him unless we have somebody better lined up, he drives you mad, he can be non existent but he can also win a game on his own and gets goals and without him i dont think we would be in the premiership now.

I expect some point this window for an agent supposedly representing Odemwingie to say he is interested in talking to QPR, a few days later it emerges this 'agent' is his neighbours, cousins, sisters best mates, auntys builder who once saw Odemwingie in Tesco! Like every other window really!

Its all rumour at the moment, Redknapp does what he does well, he keeps it in the media, and it sometimes turns a players head, we dont know if that is the case with Odemwingie. The only way i could see us selling him was if they offered stupid money or Odemwingie says he wants to go there.

If he did say he wants to go there then its clearly a money decision, not being arrogant but we are bigger and better than QPR in every way, that may well change with the backing they have over the next few years but by then Odemwingie would be mid 30's and QPR will of replaced him with a 'name'. On the other hand they could get relegated, owner gets hacked off with wasting money and they turn into a nothing club in the championship.

There will be financial clauses in players contracts if QPR go down.Is he another one that wants to live in London.

CL has stated Pete's very happy in West Brom, and at the club.

QPR/Harry can go elsewhere, if JP aint selling, that's that ;D

If he wants to stay, and it sounds like he does, keep him. His a massive asset to the team and a player others can learn from, I don't care about his contractual length and its repercussions on a future fee, he only cost us a couple of million so there's not really a question of recouping the fee we paid for him in my eyes.

No offense intended, but I don't believe this. It just doesn't make sense on multiple levels. Maybe you misread it?

IF and its a BIG BIG IF this is true and he does want to talk to them then for me i'd be more disappointed in the player than the club ...
Same here. I'd be pretty surprised, too. It's mostly Harry's psychological warfare, methinks.

I didn't dislike Harry before this week, but he really irritates me now. Reminds me of some of the unsavory characters I used to know when I lived in north London.

Remy to QPR should end the Odemwingie rumours. They have Cisse already there so shouldnt need another triker on top of that. As a side note, it is gross that the bottom club with a huge wage bill already can go out and sign 2 French internationals in Loic Remy and Yann MVilla in the same transfer window.

Contracts mean absolutely nothing nowadays. Money always talks and with QPR's owner seemingly not short in this department I can see Odemwingie being tempted to up sticks. JP will no doubt squeeze him for every penny if that situation arises. I just hope Olsson doesn't go. Unlike Odemwingie he will be really difficult to replace.

Steve Clarke has said no one is for sale apart from Dorrans so thats the end of the matter for me,
enjoy Odemwingie and cherish him because you dont know what you`ve got until its gone.
Wasnt you happy about his 1st season when he scored 16 goals ?
or even his 2nd with 11 ?
I sometimes wonder what these Albion fans are thinking but I guess they must be happy with

If Odemwingie goes, and with Gera out injured, we are putting alot of reliance on Thomas and Fortune  from the wide positions. Could they produce a similar number of goals? I doubt it.
The only way we should even think about helping Odemwingie to QPR is if we use the deal to get someone special in return, like Taarrabt .

I agree, lordbaggie. I wouldn't sell either unless it was a completely ridiculous bid. I like PO, he has been the back bone of our attack for a few seasons now and done a stellar job. He was basically a one man attack force in his first season for us. One of our best signings ever in my opinion, easily one of the best in modern times.

As for Nursey I can't stand him as a journalist, seems to have a real soft spot for Villa and Norwich for some reason.

If he does go it will be for a Jeremy Peace style deal and it won't be for a cheap fee. Fernandes may be a good businessman when it comes to other business but has he sat across a boardroom table with Jezza  :D

The biggest factor for me is what we would be left with , Lukaku is a loan , Long has done well but needs to be managed . After those two you have Rosenberg who hasn't settled (not played in true role though) , Fortune who works hard but doesn't score enough and now we have Nabi breaking through but just a kid.
Add to this Clarke likes to play 4-2-3-1 and uses Pete on the flanks , for me even if QPR are desperate enough to pay big it would too much changing around for us in a small space of time in a expensive market .

Spot on, would certainly not let him go in January as we would be forced to pay over the odds for a replacement. Would not mind letting him go in the summer provided we can get a quality young replacement for him, but then we have the problem that any transfer fee would be severely reduced

According to the twitter thing just that Remy has chose QPR over Newcastle officially so i imagine that would be the end of their interest but the general opinion from overseas experts is that Remy is not in good form and will take a while to get going at QPR so maybe they will pursue Odemwingie for instant results.

Title: Re: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City
Post by: Baggies on January 15, 2013, 05:36:09 PM
Clarke likes playing a 433 with the wide men acting as forwards like in Mouriniho's set up. Odemwingie is the only player we have who can do this role and do it well. Losing him would leave our side very unbalanced and if we sell him without bringing in a replacement I will be very disappointed in the club, again looking at money rather than success.

I do understand the argument about his age and the money offered though, although i'm not convinced QPR are ready to offer serious money. 2-2.5 million offered for Odemwingie was it? Why would we ever accept that? We wont sell for less than 5 million and even that, for a player who is on course for a third straight double figure goal season, who is versatile, and in the inflated prices January transfer window, is quite low.

I would understand if we accept for 6.5-7 million for him as it frees up about 3 million in wages over 18 months on top but I would expect a replacement this January, even if it was just a loan.
Title: Re: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City
Post by: GrGr on January 15, 2013, 05:50:37 PM
The only way we would sell Odemwingie is if we got enough money to buy a direct replacement of first team quality. Maybe enough to buy someone like Ince (if he would fit in, I haven't seen him much but the little I've seen he has looked talented. But that player would need to fit Clarke's system to a t.)

He's only on the bench tonight. It is anyone's guess how significant this is. Perhaps he will just be eased back after his injury. On the other hand, he may have been kept out of the team in case he gets injured again prior to a transfer. I think the former is likely to be the case.

Sky Sports sources understands that Peter Odemwingie could hand in a formal transfer request as a last resort.

Queens Park Rangers have lodged an offer for the West Bromwich Albion striker - who insist they do not want to sell the Nigerian international.

But QPR remain keen on sealing a deal for the 31-year-old striker and the player is believed to feel that the offer made for him is 'adequate' for his services.

If nothing else materialises then it is understood that, as a 'last resort', Odemwingie is prepared to hand in a formal transfer request to try and push through a move to Loftus Road.

To be honest, 'IF' he were to hand a formal transfer request in..........I would do everything I could (If I were in JP's position) to ruin him.  Throw him in the reserves and fine him at every available opportunity. 

I believe that there is no smoke without fire.  It's probably agent talk, but if it isn't true then why doesn't he come out and say so?

No-one player should dictate to the club.

This is what I see as the major problem here is the big IF we reinvest.
How many times have we sold and not reinvested in January I'd let both odemwingie and dorrans go if the team gets the money.
But should it go towards operating costs again it leaves us very short in midfield.
I'd like to see us take the approach some other teams do by we will sell but only when a replacement is already here.

pete has been very valuable to us this season.  anyone we got in as a replacement would not be.  We should keep him.  We probably need 2 new wingers anyway - ideally we'd get one on loan now and then in the summer we find a long termer.  See no reason to sell.  Getting to 10th in the prem shoudl be the aim and we need a strong squad.  Pete can do a job for the next few years - he is worth more to us than a few quid in fees.

Get rid of. Surely it's unsettling the squad to keep hearing that a player wants to leave during every transfer window.

Not sure why but I've never really liked him. He's scored some good/timely goals, but he's just always seemed too slefish for my liking. I'm not quite sure how he's been so popular throughout his time here. Most selfish players annoy the fans.

The squad ain't going to be disrupted by the rumours about him wanting a move because I'm sure they could ask him direct if he wanted to go. The fact is it is still only SKY who've said he may want to go. People are being panicked by these rumours, he'll be staying mark my words.

If they offer a good transfer fee let him go. I don't see the sense in leaving for a few more K a week when it is going to cost him much more to live over there. If they get relegated he is inevitably going to take a wage cut and probably struggle to find a new club. If he had sense he would just stay, but if they offer 5+ million just let him go and have a sour end to his career.

Last January Sky reported that the transfer of Odemwingie to Fulham was all but complete - when actually Fulham hadn't even an interest in the player.

Sky crank up the drivel speculation in January (especially on their website) to generate more 'hits', it also helps feed interest in their razmataz 'transfer window countdown' nonsense on the final day of the month.

Odemwingie's wife is 5 days overdue with her first born, I doubt very much Pete is contemplating handing in a transfer requests and up rooting his family within the next two weeks.  He hasn't said he wants to leave, Clarke has stated his not selling, Rednapp has said he won't be making another bid for the player.  Sky Sports understands is as good as saying Tribal football understands.  Its garbage.

if it is going to happen, sooner rather than later please so a replacement can be bought in, we know Albion aren't the quickest at getting transfers done!

IMO i don't think he'll go, and i don't want him to, along with Morrison he's the only player that offers a bit of drive from the midfield!

I agree the Sky Sports stuff is rubbish, people can text in rumours and they put them on!

However i think the fact local journalists have confirmed something makes it more feasible, i would say Odemwingie probably wants to hear what they say as if they offer him loads more money, extra years and performance bonuses with no pay cut if they want down or a release clause, his head would be turned.

Doesnt mean he is going though, think there needs to be a alot of things for that to happen and not sure they will (and hope they dont)

PO is my favorite player, and one i believe comes under far too much critiscm despite being one, if not THE most dangerous player we have.

However, every transfer window we have these rumours. PO either needs to get rid of his agent (im an agent too, i know how it works!) as he stirs up far too much for one player; OR he needs to be sold.

This is either PO 'casually' always looking for more money, or his agent looking for a big pay-off also as he see PO coming to the end of his career

There's been much media specualtion in the past week or so about Odemwingie heading for QPR, but if Odemwingie is not interested in leaving then why doesn't he come out and say so? I like an occasional flutter and I am seriously considering wagering a few pounds on Odemwingie being lured away during this window by the extra cash he can apparently make at Loftus Road.

Some idiot then tweeted Odemwingie that 'he should f**k off as he is a money grabbing c**t and his transfer request is to try and get more money'

Now Odemwingie has just become a dad, so a very happy time and as far as i know as of yet he hasnt put in transfer request, yet he is getting abused about rumours! Some of our supporters really are 100% b***ends. (fortunately most are good!)

The good thing with Odemwingie is that I dont think he`s ever really had a serious injury so the bloke
hasnt lost any of his pace. You just have to look at Giggs and Scholes to realise that a player can still
be going strong in thier late 30`s.
If we did decide to sell him then I couldnt see us replacing him when we`re looking at defenders
we dont even need (SEBASTIAN COATES)-Liverpool.
At this moment in time Albion need to be loaning or buying a holding midfielder and trying to keep all
this squad together even Graham Dorrans who`s done alright these last few games.
If fans want to make Odemwingie play better then stop singing that stupid "THERES ONLY 1 SHANE LONG"!!!!!

Tomorrow i am sure the Villa players will get hostile reception, be some banter, and for 90 minutes we despise them, dont get me wrong even aside from the matches we are not their biggest fans but i cant imagine any normal person going out there way to abuse them!

Fans need to grow up and understand that a players relationship with a club is different to their own. If a player wants to move on he is entitled to do so and 90% of the time it is because of the money just like you and I when we change jobs.

Personally I would not blame him for wanting to leave if the package on offer was right, QPR have a fighting chance of getting out of it and at 32 how many more big days is he going to have?  It is total rubbish to think that his agent has not spoken to QPR and knows roughly what is on offer. Players never fail to agree terms in cases where a player hands in a transfer request after a clubs initial offer has been rejected which tells its own story

I can understand anyone wanting to leave for more money.I am sure we have all done it at some point in our working lives.The issue I have however is that PO has had very little time on the pitch this season,and when he has played,it has mainly been out wide.For that reason,I can understand him wanting to leave for footballing reasons as well as the extra cash.

http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story/_/id/1305723?cc=5739#


The Nigerian said the result was a good one for the Baggies, who nevertheless drop to eighth in the standings. It was a good point for us,'' Odemwingie told ESPN. "From 2-0 down, coming out with a point was good.

"We could have scored a third one but I think the manager is pleased with a point.'' Asked about the transfer speculation, he added: "I'm not the one deciding this. Nothing abnormal is going on. Players move clubs.

"An offer was made and I was thinking about having to secure my own future in the Premier League, which is my desire. So we had a good talk with the club and now I'm here and I would say that it's a club that I love with all my heart.''

Baggies boss Steve Clarke confirmed Odemwingie is not leaving. He said: "No-one is going out in January. We don't need to sell anyone. Will he move if there is a silly offer? You don't know our chairman (Jeremy Peace). No-one is going out.

"The quicker we get to February 1 the better. No-one is coming in and no-one is going out.''

Odemwingie is actually half Russian. As well as playing there I understand that he was born in the old Soviet union and did spend at least some of his formative years in Russia or Uzbekistan.

It just happened that half of his family is Nigerian and he chose to represent them at International level.

It's all quite parasitic by the mirror and if all of this is fabricated it's really unfairly put Pete in a bad light. If you go by his actions on the pitch (playing like a man posessed!) and his words ( saying he loves the club, the fans score the equaliser) then the matters put to bed. The Mirror should just leave this now it seems like they, sky sports and talk sport are the only ones trying to make this happen, even 'arry gave up last week!

I might be mistaken but it looked to me like he grabbed the crest on his shirt (maybe kissed it?) after scoring on Saturday...as well as pointing to his name on his shirt.
 Might be an idea if we started singing his name! Couldn't hear much singing of his name even though he saved us a point.

Can't say I'm a big Odemwingie fan - he's just too selfish for my liking. But I think he can do a job for us in the second half of the season, and I can't see us replacing him in this transfer window for anything better.

Obviously you are fully entitled to your opinion, but I can't understand fans who don't rate Odemwingie. Not just you but I've seen plenty of others as well. Despite sometimes being a bit single minded and maybe holding the ball a bit too long occasionally the guy is constantly involved in important parts of the game. So often has some involvement in our goals either scoring, assisting or taking part earlier in the move.

Personally I don't mind him being a bit greedy. Getting his head down and running at people or getting shots off is at least putting us on the front foot and making something happen. Not sure we have another player apart from maybe Mozza who can turn us from defence into attacking quickly by carrying the ball. We have lacked decent ball carriers for years.
Title: Re: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City
Post by: GrGr on January 22, 2013, 06:56:05 PM
I agree A5HB. Mozza can be man marked out of games. The only time I've seen that happen with PO is when he plays on the wings and opposing teams stack two or three players behind him, and our team doesn't shift the play enough to loosen up the opposing defence. Yes, clearly PO likes to be on the ball and I sometimes wish he'd play simple one twos more often. But look at our first goal against Villa. PO carried the ball from our own half, holding off a Villa player, played a one two with Thomas and again held off a Villa player and then played a perfect low cross from the touchline to Lukaku who had the sense to set up Brunty. That was a player aware of and using his teammates.

PO could easily play for a much better team than us, we can't say that about many of our players can we?

I dont understand anybody that doesn't want to keep him for as long as possible! He's definitely a player that needs to be man-managed and dealt with very carefully but he's one of few we have that will do something out of nothing (ie blackburn and newcastle games last year)

personally, i'd give him a pay rise and contract extension. other prem clubs want him,what does that tell you?

i despair at some of our fans - we only notice his worth when he doesn't play.who else can do what he does?


also, just a thought - his goal v villa was a replica of his goal v the dingles - spin and instant volley on a corner off the post.

Totally agree for me he should be given a longer contract...

I dont get all this we can sell him in the summer its the last chance we will get to grab some money...why? he cost what 1.5m and has scored a fantastic amount of goals he has repaid his fee and we dont need to sell we should keep until he cant play no more

No two ways about it but it won't work at least not in this window. The problem is that it does unsettle the player and even if the club digs its' heals in now once the player starts thinking about a move he becomes keener to explore the next opportunity when it arises and less happy for the club to keep rebuffing approaches, at some point something gives.

You see this is what really pisses me off about Sky Sports, saying that Odemwingie could be handing in a transfer request tomorrow.

Of course he could hand in a transfer request tomorrow, he could do absolutely anything tomorrow. It's such a loose word, they don't put their balls on the line and say he will hand in a transfer request. But in that time it allows fans to get worried, players could have their heads turned etc. All to help out 'Arry.

Sorry for the rant.

For this to keep on rumbling on through the month someone is briefing the media and it ain't us. There is a well worn pattern. 'Arry makes it known that he likes a player although he never talks about other clubs players, a very public bid is made and is rebuffed. A week or so lapses during which time rumours appear that the player is considering handing in a transfer request or is unhappy that he is being priced out of a move. The second bid is made, repeat until player demands a move or the club give up in the last few hours of the window.

Hopefully we tell QPR where to go, in point of fact I would rather give Odemwingie to the Dingles than sell him to him Redknapp.
Title: Re: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City

I hope this latest rumour about Odemwingie planning to hand in a transfer is not true. Why would a player of his talent want to play next season in the Championship? Arry, no doubt, will offer him more money than we pay him as a bait, but I am sure that a good chunk of any rise would go to the taxman and his agent.

Got to say it does leave a sour taste the way Pete has handled this.

However I'm reserving the majority of my anger for Redknapp. The bloke is an absolute tool and so are the media who blindly follow his every word and unsettle players on his behalf.

We can't let him go on the cheap. We'll be seen as an easy target for similar under the table maneuvers. JP will bleed them dry, or PO won't go anywhere until the summer at least.

If QPR want him so badly then they shall need to pay what we want.

We have a problem though, do we choose to sell now (providing the price is right) and risk not replacing him or do we wait until the summer, baring in mind any relationship between Odemwingie and the fans is now in ruins.

I agree with the above. Anything over 5 mil we should let him go. I think we've had the best out of Pete now anyway. He is still very talented but his form will only deteriorate in the coming years. Let some other club cover his wages when that time comes.

Harry Redknapp has confirmed he is finding it hard to attract players to Queens Park Rangers during the January transfer window.

As they don't have many choices and the transfer clock ticks down,I think they will make a improved offer to us,more than 3m is a sensible price for me.

He's just an arsehole of the highest order.

Doesn't like to talk about other teams players, so I'll get my mates in the media to unsettle the players instead.

So over-rated as a manager as well, thank christ Roy got the England job. Not sure I could cope with seeing 'Arry at all these public events with his cockney "charm" and the media still declaring him some sort of god despite his failings at Spurs and bankrupting Pompey

Odemwingie really needs to show some respect for the Albion and just wait until the summer for a move away.

Not at all happy with this !

I've defended him despite some crazy criticism from some fans and I didn't think he would ask for a move. If it was a top PL or European club I could understand but to have his head turned by such a little tin-pot t8ss-pot outfit is shocking and reflects badly upon him.

Seems like the second hand car salesman in charge of the bottom club has weaved his magic and unsettled him well and truely.

Just hope that we stick to our guns and stop him moving barring crazy money that would be spent on an appropriate replacement.

The whole episode stinks - I'd like to know if he's been illegally tapped up by the Far Eastern sc8m.

This statement translates one thing for me, give us what we want for him or do one. The club no matter what they say publicly will sell him at the right price.

Surely we can only sell our best technical player if we have someone of quality lined up as a possibilty ?

Will the Club pay the wages and fee for such a player ?

Unless we're prepared to give him a pay rise, which is what he's after, we should get the best price and let him go.

I believe he is one of our better players but he hasn't shown up that many times this season so we could cope. Lets face it we won't be getting a replacement so well have to.

I'm disappointed in his reaction especially after stating a few days back about his love or the club, why say that when its obviously in his mind to leave.

Can't blame him if he wants the money, we'd all probably do it, but there's ways to go about these things and not act so falsely towards the fans.

I personally would keep him. It has left us little options for a replacement. I hope the club keep strong on this. PO will then have two options; play well for a move in the summer or sulk so no one comes in for him he runs his contract down and ends up at a lower league club. If he wants a summer move he will need to play his heart out. If the club give in it wills undermine SC who has been making statements no one is leaving.

Supported him, stuck up for him, rooted for him to get over his little 'head's gone' malarkey, but this takes the biscuit.

To speak one weekend of how the club is to deal with transfers and it's not down to him, and how he loves the club dearly (can't be bothered to find the quote but it was posted earlier in here) for him to do this is despicable.

If he doesn't want to be here and has some cock and bull story about 'wanting to secure his Premier League survival', let him go. I can only hope he goes down with that dire football team and he has to live with the decision. I assume a lot is agent pressure and being unsettled by QPR, but any 'making a better life for himself' is utter garbage.

Very disappointed in Pete in all honesty after the support he has been given since signing and it leave's me feeling 50/50 on this . On one hand if anybody wants to go that much from our club i don't want them here unless they accept "No" straight away and get back to working hard , on the other hand why should we back down to Harry and his Cockney press pal's ?....he was told no yet still tap's up behind the scenes.
You also have to look at the bigger picture and say if we let Q.P.R have their way who's next to be tapped up ?,Mulumbu ? Yacob ? Long ?....this isn't the correct way to do business and makes us look soft to other teams if we let Q.P.R force this in that manner.

Well, all of his heart that day.  ::)

I can't believe I agree with KYA about anything, but I have to say, you're spot on there. PO's become more of a distraction at this point.

Cant say im overly bothered as long as we get a replacement and squeeze qpr for all we can.

We've no reason to budge and are holding all the cards.

It would have been more painfull a couple of years ago when he was the best we have however we have a fairly strong squad now.

As for all the indignation "how could he leave us" etc ...dont waste your breath.  He'll do the best he can for him and his family and so he should.  He's 31(?) so any last payday is well advised.

The club at least are making all the rights noises.  Essentially if you want him get your wallet out.

I still think this could be good business for us.  I sense we can get more for him now than at seasons end.

We may struggle a bit is no immediate replacement is forthcoming however this seasons ambitions have really gone now anyway. (So long as we get at least two wins from the remaining games).

I think we've handled this perfectly and sent a strong message out...

1) To QPR & other clubs - If you want to buy our players, you'll have to pay the price we want and we won't be unsettled by underhand tactics

2) To Pete - If you think that you can hand in a transfer request underhandedly and not get outed for it after declaring your 'love' for the club then think again. Shut up and get your head down.

3) To other players - You're under contract with us. It will remain so until we see fit that we sell / release you. If you don't want to be humiliated and have your relationship with the fans in tatters (as will be the case now with Pete) then you know how to go about your business.

So what if we get goos money for him , would you trust Peace to spend big for once ???? The club have plenty of cash swilling around after such low spending in the summer remember.

We have already lost forward players Gera and Wood from the squad and Lukkau on only on loan.

That leaves three big holes to fill if we wait until summer and our club have struggled for ten years to attract genuine Premiership forwards so I have little faith we would conjure up suitable like for like replacements for that trio. We will end up gambling on the cheap again.

Basically saying he wants to play for QPR and some harsh words against the club for not releasing him!
Anyone else heard it an thoughts?
If i can find it ill link it.

Some sort of statement on Sky Sports News or something from him? Anyone know what it siad?
Very long statement thanking fans but saying that he wanted this challenge and wanted to work under Redknapp.  It also had a pop at the mgmt for failing to tell him about previous interest.  He also whinged about the position he was playing in and the fact that he wasnt an automatic pick.  Roughly translated:  I genuinely like the fans but I want the money and I'm going (or you'll have a seriously disgruntled player).

Statement said things about the club not letting him know about offers for him to secure his & his family's future , loves the fans, blah blah blah, if he's that important to the team then why is he being played out of position ? club pricing him out of a move etc etc .
No way is this going to end happy !

His statement basically says that he has done wonders for us and deserves to be allowed to move on. Cheeky barsteward. Who the hell does he think he is? I wish we were a wealthy club and could afford to let him rot in the stiffs. Sadly, we are not and we'll just have to let him go. It is infuriating.

2) why assist a team with mega money behind them stay up and in all likelihood improve next season 3

Good point as if QPR do stay then they are likely to keep throwing good money after bad which will, despite our slow and careful building of the squad over a number of years (the 'right' way), eventually blow us our of the water and take another place away from us as we will never be able to compete.....................sometimes this PL lark makes you wonder if it's worth all the heartache hoping that clubs would come to their senses and we could compete in a level playing field.
Along come Tin-Pot QPR and blow everything to pieces with such classless and reckless behaviour - at least they now have the right type of person in charge - Used Car Salesman Arry and his Media mates.

We've only got ourselves to blame here.

We were doing fine until Yacob got injured and then we bring in championship quality replacements. 

Obviously PO is fed up with playing with lesser quality individuals.  We've had 25 days to bring in better players and we've done nothing.

We'll finish bottom half at this rate.   On the other hand I can see QPR averaging 2ps per game from here onwards.   

Some players are too comfortable at Hawthorns, these are the ones that should be moved on.  We show no aggression apart from when we're behind in a match.

He should never be allowed to play for us again after that statement on SSN.  He is not bigger than the club like he thinks he is.  Let him go to the team at the bottom of the league and struggle.  He is not welcome here any more as far as i'm concerned!

Completely for financial reasons. He is in his early thirties, and will see it as a last opportunity chance to make a quick buck - well his agent does.

Let him go, our last chance to get some top dollar for him, it's clear he is just a mercenary.

Clarke plays him out of position as it is and that's hardly working, so why keep and unhappy player.

Take the money and run. Also, Harry Redknapp, you are a w*nker.

There has to be some tapping up going on here be by odemwingie himself or his agent.

I'm really disappointed with his statement but we have to face the fact that like most players hes a mercenary so let him go and enjoy championship football.

Considering the position we are to them at the minute I'll happily take the 3-5 million or whatever they'll offer. We can easily invest that in to another striker 5 years younger than Pete. He's only going to get worse in time now.

He may have not have written every sentence but he will have agreed to the general meaning and detail in it. Why does business have to be conducted in this unseemly way?

Petes statement,he shouldnt get a transfer he should get a prison sentence for that crap


Odemwingie has responded with a long statement which read: "I'm deeply hurt and in some ways offended by the lack of reciprocal common respect from the management of West Bromwich Albion.

"During my time at the club I believe I have delivered performances, effort and goals.

"I never complained when I found out that the club failed to inform me of enquiries that might have interested me and my family in the past.

"Everyone knows how much effort and commitment I always give when I play for the club. The fans have been great with me and I will always respect them.

"Some may say I have contributed, along with all my team mates, to the survival of the club in the Premier League in recent seasons.

"At this stage of my career, this opportunity may not come around again. A new challenge, a new opportunity, and a chance to play under the stewardship of one of the most respected managers in the game (Harry Redknapp).

"I hope the management of West Bromwich Albion will accept my transfer request in the manner that I have requested it.

"West Bromwich Albion may argue that I am too vital a member of the team to allow me to leave now but I could argue that team selection so far this season has not reflected that and there is more than adequate cover for my position currently in the squad, culminating in my playing out of position.

"I have not taken this decision lightly and I would like West Bromwich Albion to accept what, in my opinion, is more than a reasonable offer from QPR for me."

He is going on 32,we get our money back for him (probably 3 mill).
He has saved us many times...he wants a last pay cheque.
I do believe he likes us and has done a job.
If we keep him will he play to his best....No!!
Will he sulk?? .....Yes.

We have Long back...lets put the money towards signing Lukaku next season....maybe 15 mill would get him.

Eh!? Don't know about others but I'm not comfortable about my money contributing towards his wages after what he has just said.

Get someone in who wants to be here!

If we are seen as a soft touch none of your money will go to the wages of our core players. They will be gone and we will be left with a relegation squad. As soon as we get a decent player other teams will lick their chops and tap him up.

Think we need to keep him. He will go in the summer but will need to work hard to impress someone daft enough to pay the money peace is going to want. Meaning we get the best out of him and enough time to find a replacement.

Not really. As I've stated, Pete is only going to get worse. So are many of our other players. Although this is a sour situation it is a great opportunity to get rid of a high earner who in 18 months be a shadow of the player who joined us.

It will allow us to cash in and get someone else younger in. And it's not like we are short of strikers as it is, and were in no danger of going down.

If he does play again he will only have to make one mistake and he will be blasted,the atmosphere will turn sour and thats not good for the team.

Once you lose the fans there isnt anyway back, after all he is a confidence player and if he is getting abuse he isnt going to be any good.

Odemwingie will not play for us again especially after that statement. Maybe the reserves if QPR dont offer the right money. I can see Newcastle or Fulham being tempted aswell. Its not good to have a player who wants to leave aswell.

Great post.  Give Redknapp and QPR encouragement over buying our players on the cheap, and they'll be queueing up to sign Mulumbu, Yacob and Olsson.

If we become renowned for being a club that sells it's best players then we may as well not bother with the Premier League.

What's galling for me is that the club in question is bottom of the league - how embarrassing for us having to fend off this bid when we're 8th.

The players we should be getting rid of we can't because they want to stay which IMO is breeding complacency and negative results on the pitch.  We're desperate for new faces now to kick start our season.

Exactly. If QPR gets PO and survives they will then have even more money they can use to tap up our players. We would allow a vicious circle (also other rich clubs would join the frey). I hope QPR go down tbh, in fact it would be strategically more important for us to see QPR down than even Villa I think. Villa are pretty skint in comparison with QPR and besides, it's fun with derbies. :)

But if there is one thing I trust JP to do it is basic arithmetic. He knows the numbers inside out and I hope QPR have the guts and decency to go up against him openly instead of this cowardly tapping up balls.

He'll be off no doubt whatsoever. There's only a few clubs in the world who can afford to let a player rot in the reserves - especially when he's their top earner. JP will be loving this - fee's are always inflated in January, and the buying club have rich owners and a stupid manager with a blank chequebook in his pocket.

At least our London office might get some use over the next few days!

I wouldn't be too concerned if we don't buy a replacement in Jan - being safe from relegation we don't have to panic buy and our targets would be more feasible (and cheaper) in the summer.

Always had the feeling this would happen with Pete at some point. There's been countless other stories in other windows, and for me, he's always played for himself rather than the team. Not to take anything away from some of the memories though, dingles hat trick etc!

It's hard to know which way to go with this.

Option 1 - Let him sit on 40k per week, in the reserves until summer then sell him. Obviously this is costing the club 40k a week for absolutely nothing, so not sure if this would happen, but no doubt he would lose game time and be less of a player.

Option 2 - Sell him and hope that QPR get relegated. It may open up the door for ones like Rosenberg to get more game time.

Option 3 - Keep him at least until summer, play him and listen to the boos ring out every time he touches the ball.

Just a thought: IF he stayed and got game time, and IF he scored, would anyone cheer or not? Sounds random, but it's just something I was thinking about.

I would rather we sell him, I don't want any hoop playing in stripes.
Title: Re: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City
Post by: alex1 on January 25, 2013, 11:13:52 PM
Hope we think calmly and rationally now. Pete is a very important part of SC's squad, as he gives us something different up front. If we lose him we are going to struggle scoring goals. Long and Lukaku are decent strikers, but they are not going to be firing on all cylinders for the rest of the season, and will undoubtedly have to miss games here and there. It means we'll end up sliding down the table, unless we can bring in an adequate replacement in the next week. And that's a very big if. So if we can't, we don't sell.. Pete is under contract so JP should be in the driving seat.
However, if QPR won't go away, we could say that we won't talk unless Taarabt is part of the deal. Taarabt is not really a striker, but he is nevertheless class.  Would be interesting to see what Harry makes of that.
You can see why SC was saying he wishes the end of the transfer window would come. But we absolutely must not be left high and dry come 31st Jan.
As for QPR, never liked them. Now, I hope with a passion that they end up relegated.

After hearing that statement on sky, I have totally lost all respect for the man. Who does he think he is. It's Albions choice as to what fee to accept,  he's scored 10 goals a season and reckons he's only worth 2 million. What a joke.

We need to get shot of him, but only on our terms. He deserves all he gets from the crowd if he is still here next week. Cannot understand why he has to be so vocal about wanting out, why bother signing a contract.

Obviously has a problem with not getting game time under Steve Clarke, and since when did Harry gain such hero worship.

Whether he goes now or in the summer he has acted disgustingly with no respect for the club, fans and teammates.

I sincerely hope he doesnt get stick from the supporters. That would be very counter productive. He has a right to request a transfer. Why is there anything wrong with that? Whether he is allowed to go is a different matter. That is the clubs perogative. I expect him to be totally professional and come to play each time he is selected. As long as he does that then he should be supported the same as any player. Rather ironic that people should criticise Brunty as past it and surplus to requirements in the same week. What price loyalty eh? All clubs need (read businesses) loyal employees at the core!

Wouldn't it be nice if we were able to send him on loan to Reading or Wigan until the end of the season, and then sell him ;)

However, in the real world, I now can't see anything other than him moving to QPR in the next few days. Harry, Peter and his agent have well and truly done a job on us here. Sticking him in the reserves 'to rot' on his wages is simply not an option for us. Peace can play hardball with the best of them but he isn't stupid. Realistically, he's not going to be able to play for us again, so what does that leave? The thing that his agent, himself and Harry wanted, that we sell him.

Cant argue with that. I just hope people dont get too emotive about the whole issue though. No need...hes a good player and as long as he gives his all on the pitch if he does stay until the summer then we would be cutting of our nose to spite our face if we gave him a hard time because of it.

Personally I won't boo him but I will understand why others will, i'd rather ignore him, if he scores then obviously i'll cheer the goal as its a goal for the club but it will take a lot for me to sing his name again.

that though is purely hypothetical as I think he has played his last game for us, bit coincidental maybe that this is done this weekend with no game don't you think ??

I think Pete has deliberately burnt his bridges with the statement. The player could have handed in a transfer request in private without anyone outside the club even being aware of it. The fact that got out into the media was unfortunate but wholly predictable, however it is the statement which is frankly insulting to the club and its management. There is no way back after that.

The club is in an insidious position we know that we probably have to sell him either now or in the summer. I like the idea of letting him rot for the rest of the season and then unloading him as best as we can in the summer. However that is an expensive point to make and is not a good use of the club's resources. Although I think the club need to make sure that Pete, his agent and Del Boy think that it is an option but ultimately we will do the deal although not on the terms that are currently on offer. 

It is my sincere hope that 'Arry makes the tactical blunder of playing Pete in a 442 behind the main striker and player, club and manager plummet like a stone.

But, at least have the dignity and respect to say i want more money, QPR can offer me way more than WBA, thats why i am going, wouldnt make it right but its honest. Instead he has used a number of reasons which clearly are rubbish and sadly those comments could not be associated with the club all to get his own way. Not the first wont be the last but people have paid his wages for this club the last 2 and half seasons, at least have the dignity to tell the truth about why he wants to go.

I'd stick him on the bench and get him to warm up every 15 minutes just so he can hear how the fans think of him now. The man is pure greed, has been since day one. Unquestionable talent on his day and always likely to turn a game, but that doesn't make up for bad mouthing the club that saved him from all the racial abuse he cried about in Russia.
Name him as a sub every game for the rest of the season. His name alone is not enough to be in a starting line up for the Baggies, that requires someone with committment and belief in their team and a love of the fans who support him so faithfully.

He would have approved it, or if he doesn't agree with it, he would have issued a rebuttal.

I don't mind a transfer request but to release that statement is very poor judgement. Although it'll probably work and get him what he wants. The club can't afford to cut its nose off to spite its face so to say we should keep him till the end of the season is irrational, we can't afford a 40k player to sit on the bench to spite him.

If we leave him in the reserves then it'll upset team spirit in the rest of the players.

There's only one option - to accept as much money as possible from QPR in next 5 days.

He's certainly dragged WBA's name through the mud via the world media.  My worry is what are we going to do with the money, do we have time to get a replacement before 31 Jan?

The current performances can't go on.  Aston Villa were beaten by Millwall and Bradford while we limped to a draw.  You can say some of our other players are loyal, the reason is that no other clubs want them, so the end result is loyalty to WBA.

I'm afraid QPR will stay up.  They're working round the clock to bring in quality for big fees.  15 games is a very long way to go in the season and that's why we need incoming transfers ourselves.

FA to put QPR under Transfer Embargo for rest of January due to Tapping Up of Odemwingie


we should post that headline on every football forum/twitter/blog/fansite we can.


Let see if the media will then sensationalize it the way 'Arry has got then to turn PO's head.

For those saying that without him we wouldn't have stayed up, point taken.
But if it wasn't for us he would never have got the chance to play premiership football. His just another selfish greedy footballer, like most of them!!

He won't get much more playing time there as they just signed Remy. He'll either be on the bench or out of position just like he is with us. It's all about the money!!

Just hope we can get a replacement in if he does go.

After the release of that statement I think his position at the club is completely untenable. There might have been a way back for him had he simply submitted a transfer request but the statement he has released is just a step too far.

Disrespectful, condescending and full of untruths. The statement about wanting to work with one of the most respected managers in the games is laughable tbh. There is only one reason that a player would leave a team 8th in the table for one sitting at the bottom of thr league and that's money.

Whilst he is still a hugely important player for us, is his commitment going to be there for the rest of the season? If not i believe we'd be better off getting rid rather than have him disrupt the strong team ethics and ethos that we have worked to build.

That statement is an insult to everyone's intelligence. It also shows him not to be the sharpest tool in the bag.   It says it all really for a player wanting to move to QPR at this point in the season given where they are in the league.  I think he's been a great player for us, definitely our best attacking player.  He will be gone shortly, there's no way back for him now.

It is no real surprise to me,the bloke has angled for a move in every window,then makes a statement saying how much he loves the club when it doesn't happen.
I am too old to be taken in by suchclap trap,but he has broken the hearts of a lot of our young fans who have stood by him and idolised him.He has show total disrespect to them and to West bromwich Albion.

Although he has been our best striker ever at this level i could never take to the bloke,it was all about him,his goal celebration against Villa said it all.

Personally i would make an example of him by keeping him here to the summer and playing him in the reserves.He would probably go on strikebut it wouldn't last when he got no money.

Hold him up to the world as an example of the modern overpaid, spoilt footballer.A player who would leave a club who is 8th in the league for one who might go down.
QPR might have the money(for now),but that will never buy them the history and tradition of West Bromwich Albion.

Pete is a whore,pure and simple.

As good a player as he is when he wants to play, the guy has a poor attitude and is disrespectful. There have been hints of it with us before when he has been pushing for a wage increase.

I just wonder whether this situation has been simmering for a while now affecting other players that has partially contributed to our recent poor form on the pitch.

It would be interesting to know how he behaved at previous clubs since becoming a pro. It is well documented about his problems in Russia but apart from the racist element did he also alienate himself from those fans because of his own attitude?

His statement about the club is disgraceful and disrespectful (agents words or not). He has no doubt played an important part in us establishing ourselves in the Premier League, however he's not quite the player he thinks he is and is far to big for his boots. He was dodging bananas in Russia and we gave him an opportunity to get out. When he arrived in the prem no bugger had heard of him let alone could pronounce his name!!! He was great in his first season, went missing for large parts of last. Out of position or not he's to hot and cold to be regarded as the 'world beater' it appears he is portrayed as.

Take 4 mil and get rid. He'll be pulling the same stunt if QPR get relegated.

Look what happened to the last div that left us for them................Ray Harford anyone????

I might have a little bet on him not even scoring for them......

Rejection is always hard to take........and God knows we have had our fair share from players we have respected and admired.

Whilst people have argued this could lead to other players doing the same, you could also argue if we have a highly publicized occurrence of keeping a player against his will like we have now, we could have trouble attracting talented players.

It's obviously Pete himself. You can hear his voice incredibly clearly throughout the statement. It's the same strange syntax that he uses, the same hyper-emotional, childishly naive reasoning that we expect from him.

Massively disappointing but not very surprising. I don't think he's evil, just terribly immature and of limited intelligence.

I hope we don't sell him and don't play him till April. The precedent set if we caved to such behaviour would be more damaging than the opportunity cost of the money.

I don't have much to add to what has already been said. It seems like he's going to go and I don't want anyone playing for us who doesn't want to. I also hope we try to replace him this window but won't be too upset if we don't as prices are inflated and we have options in the squad already.

The point I posted to make is that I hope that the club discloses the fee- I want to know exactly what we get for him and I'd quite like to know what his wages will be a qpr (deliberate lower case).

That's all.

Handing in a transfer request is one thing. But this borders on what Tevez did for City with his refusal to play, and subsequent angling for a transfer.

It wouldn't surprise me to see the management find a way to heavily fine PO. Hit him where it hurts, in his pockets. There is no point for us to give him away to QPR this window (accepting their ridiculous offer) as we will get the same amount, minimum, in the summer for him.

The money towards PO's wages have already been accounted for, this means we can afford not to play him should we choose.

Someone asked why QPR made such a derisory offer. It's simple, it's a pee take of WBA as a PL outfit. They are bullying us with their money. I hope, and expect, JP to be in his element in this little tussle. When have we ever let a player leave the club on terms not acceptable to the club under JP? I just can't see it happen now. Especially now.

Odemwingie has responded with a long statement which read: "I'm deeply hurt and in some ways offended by the lack of reciprocal common respect from the management of West Bromwich Albion.

"During my time at the club I believe I have delivered performances, effort and goals.

"I never complained when I found out that the club failed to inform me of enquiries that might have interested me and my family in the past.

"Everyone knows how much effort and commitment I always give when I play for the club. The fans have been great with me and I will always respect them.

"Some may say I have contributed, along with all my team mates, to the survival of the club in the Premier League in recent seasons.

"At this stage of my career, this opportunity may not come around again. A new challenge, a new opportunity, and a chance to play under the stewardship of one of the most respected managers in the game (Harry Redknapp).

"I hope the management of West Bromwich Albion will accept my transfer request in the manner that I have requested it.

"West Bromwich Albion may argue that I am too vital a member of the team to allow me to leave now but I could argue that team selection so far this season has not reflected that and there is more than adequate cover for my position currently in the squad, culminating in my playing out of position.

"I have not taken this decision lightly and I would like West Bromwich Albion to accept what, in my opinion, is more than a reasonable offer from QPR for me."

Unless QPR stump up something like 7 or 8 million now, I think PO will leave in the summer. JP doesn't take kindly to being toyed with. JP won't act over emotional reasons, nor will he move on the transfer market only to bring on someone who doesn't fit the bigger picture. I doubt we will make any moves in January.

He and his agent are trying to make his position untenable so that we sell him. It is a shame it is goping to end this way as it is hard to see ho he can stay now with the reception the fans will no doubt give him.

Im not going to kid myself that football has any morals nowadays. Footballers all want to move to the highest bidder, players dont respect fans, fans dont respect players at all anymore and clubs only keep players for as long as they are useful. As seen in recent weeks with how crap our fans have been, we do not exactly make it the most loyal place to be anymore.

I am however still disappointed in Odemwingie. Putting in a transfer request is okay but having a public slanging match with the club is not on, just to force through a move that clearly is NOT GOOD FOR THE CLUB!

QPR have offered 2 million. They are now advising him to force through a move, probably for about 3 million quid. Why would we accept that? We could sell him in the summer for 2 millio to a team like Spurs or Arsenal who need a back up forward for a small fee for a year or two.

Accepting 2 or 3 million now would not be enough. It has to be 5 million, 4.5 at athe very, very least. We simply have no benefit I selling for so cheap.

The saddest thing though is that we will struggle without him and his goals and we now need to find a replacement for the summer as he has been possibly the most key player after Olsson in recent seasons.

We're already having to regularly play people out of position in the side slots, so this will only make it worse. If you sell for inflated prices then you sometimes also have to be prepared to pay them IMO.

Hope you enjoy the lovely London air, Peter, if that's where you end up. Any credit you built up at this club has well and truly been more than debited with your shameful antics this week.
Title: Re: Peter Odemwingie Joins Cardiff City
Post by: Albion79 on January 26, 2013, 12:48:11 PM
The thing is we have some other very good players but none of them are spoken about as much as Odemwingie every window, he has agents who are sharks and they just constantly tout him about, as i said previous if he didnt like the way they do things, he is a grown man and he can stand upto them. I dont think it will affect Olsson, Long, Mulumbu, etc because i would imagine they dont feel Pete has covered himself in glory. I also think those players have perhaps playing ambitions which Odemwingie clearly hasnt.

If a player goes to a bigger and better club then good luck to them, thats the football chain but for people like Odemwingie to say what he has, instead of the truth all to force a move to bloody QPR then it shows what a pathetic morally corrupt mercenary is.

I dont think it shows a lack of ambition from our side, we let a good, not great player go, i think the first season we saw the best of him, i would of liked him to stay but dont think it will be a disaster if he doesnt, we are not a one man team. If players choose moving to QPR as a career move (not money) then i would seriously have a look at there ambitions, Olsson could of done the same two weeks ago if QPR were such a great club but didnt see him doing that.

As previous posts would state i dont usually agree with booing, especially those giving it everything they have even if they are not good enough in poor form but i hope if Odemwingie does stay his every touch is booed and jeered and every time his name is read out  he gots dogs load of abuse, i dont think for a minute it would affect the other players, they know full well that he doesnt want to be here and the methods he has gone to and what the fans reaction would be, players would respond if players / team mates are unfairly booed (which we have been guilty of) they look out for their own, Odemwingie has made it clear he isnt one of their own.

If he has the nerve to come out if he is forced to stay and say he loves the club, etc it would make me pity him even more, he must think football fans are naive and idiots we are not. I also hope if he comes back with another team, (prob wont be QPR, will of forced through his 'dream' move to Stoke in the summer or something) that our fans not only give him loads of abuse but also the players, likes of Olsson, get in his ear, tell him he is s**t, ask him what he has won, why no big club has ever wanted him, etc really get in his head because he seems such a mentally fragile  person it would put him off his game. I couldnt care less about if it upset him, by the way he has spoke in his statement, he has treated us fans as mugs by the way he has gone about things and expecting us to believe his reasons instead of telling the truth so i would treat him like a mug.

No player in Albion history has wound me up as this idiot. I would love him to read this forum and let him know what fans think of him, and so he knows he could of left with his head held high but the way he has gone about it means to me i will always look at him as a mercenary scumbag, rather than the bloke who played a part in us being the best team of my time watching Albion, his parting shot has ensured he will be remembered for that.

Very dissapointing and frustrating to see the club dragged around like this in the public eye. It really is a tough situation, one of the biggest transfer dilemma's i have seen at the Albion.

No doubt Odemwingie is a massive player for us and his departure could be a huge impact on us and certainly QPR. Fantastic footballer but he has realy shown a lack of maturity with this statement and you simly cannot see him staying now, he has to go.
I really hope QPR go down, plain and simply money reasons that has turned his head. I could totally understand if he wanted to have a crack at a higher club as his performances for us the past 3 seasons have certainly earned him the possible opportunity, but QPR!! He always said if he was to leave it would be for a great opportunity, i just don't see that at QPR. They could still very easily go down with his services and it would absolutely serve him right if they do.

If this was earlier in the Window i believe the club could handle it well for all parties but this is a really tough situation with it coming so close to Deadline day.
I'm sure we would at least look for an acceptable price which is 6 million plus + Surely?? This statement has proved he is really going to make it difficult for us and could cause an unhappy camp, so the sooner we get rid the better. Also adding to that and rightly so the fans will be furious with him, can't see him being welcomed onto the Hawthorns pitch again.
Let's see how much QPR show off their money, i personally feel they will be a bit stubborn in trying to get an absolutely snip

We were so close to that Deadline day that Clarke was longing for now we have been thrown at with this, plus you have to remember it is essential we get a replacement and that is going to be extremely tough with the few days left.

I know Pete is 31 but Wolves got 14 million for Fletcher, Odemwingie has as much goals in him and carriers a much greater threat imo. I hope we get at the very least 8 million to be honest.

Frankly that's a disgusting statement for Odemwingie to come out with. The club has backed him through the racism from the Moscow fans, the times his head wasn't in the right place, the injuries of which I'm sure he could have played through, gave him a 40 grand a week contract after just one season with us. I can't really blame the guy for wanting to leave its his last shot at a big payday but to drag the club through this publicly is bang out of order it's an insult to the club and fans, I'd rather we told qpr to do one and let him rot in the reserves for the next 3 years.

The statement is disgusting and stinks of a player who is throwing the toys out of pram. It is disrespectful to the fans, the club, his team-mates and most importantly Steve Clarke. The part where he mentions Harry Redknapp is where it becomes disrespectful to SC but nothing from these modern day footballers surprise me. I would love nothing more than to let him rot in the reserves, however, we simply do not have the resources to make that happen and now due to the transfer request and this statement, the club have no choice but to sell him to the highest bidder.

The problem is finding a replacement. It is ok listing players like Hooper and Jones etc but what we need is a flair type player who can offer something similar to Odemwingie, not replace him with somebody different and someone to similar to what we already have.

Unless QPR come back with a 4 million plus offer there won't be much difference in the fee we get now and a few months from now in the summer mate , im sure we could afford a small hit money wise and frankly i hope we do to take a stand for clubs who try to build things the right way in the Premier League unlike Dirty Harry and that Loadsa money chairman of theirs.

I've watched him play and doubt his commitment in lots of matches!  Also at every transfer window when he plays media games to renegotiate his contract I question his commitment.  It does appear to be a recurring theme throughtout his career.  Smoke/fire.

There are ways of doing things and unfortunately Odemwingie has gone totally the wrong way about it.

We get the fact you want to leave, it should have ended there. The ramblings on twitter just make himself look like a greedy, inconsiderate, disrespectful **** but the man has no shame and therefore this will have no bearing on himself whatsoever.

I still say we hold out for what we wanted before though and don't crumble now accepting a cut price deal. We have to show our other players they we wont accept this way of leaving. Instead, we either get the full price for him or he deals with the consequences of his actions.

If QPR want him make them stump up 4 million and get rid, and go for Danny Graham or Charlie Austin. We get this every transfer window with PO let him go for the 80K per week and rot in the championship. Badge kissing and loving the club one minute and wanting to leave the next.

We could, to keep him happy, accept his transfer request, but obviously not accept an offer until our valuation of him is met.  this way he gets what he wants, and when he hasn't left due to other clubs seeing the worst side of him and his behaviour, and deciding that they too do not want this sort of player on their books. He will then realise that he cant carry on this way. 

I'm not saying i want to keep at the club, especially after this behaviour, but it will teach him a lesson in that he cant always get what he wants!

i hope he goes, he's a waste of 40k, a shirt, a squad number and a waste of my time even writing this.

Someone said on another post some time ago, that when he does play for us, if he doesn't score its like we're playing with 10 men.  Give his place to someone who wants to be here, will give 100% on the pitch and hopefully we might see a morale boost around the players.  He is a prima donna who thinks that everyone associated with the club owes him!!

get rid JP he's a disgrace.

I think we should hold on a second here. The guy is being strung up by the mob for speaking his mind. Is Peter a bit of a drama queen?...yes but then he always has been so nothing new there. Is he prone to a bit of self adulation and to be a bit difficult to understand? yes but this is often a trait common to highly competitive athletes in all sports. Ronnie O Sullivan for example.
Clearly he is unhappy about something but before we all write him off perhaps we (the club) should find out exactly what the problem is and whether there is a solution.
It worries me that the general assumption seems to be that he is some sort of callous money grabber when that may not be the case at all.
In my view we as supporters are of course entitled to have an opinion but should continue on match days to give him our full support. The issue is one for the club to sort out in house.

Sadly I fear this may not be the case

I am crazy haha adviser text saying don't tweet, it weakens our position. Doesn't weaken nothing ! When I want to do something, I Do it.

Peter Odemwingie ?@OdemwingieP
I succeeded in doing that. But it's not getting better.Before bigger disappointment comes one day I better leave on a good note.

I dont think anyone is buying into the fact that commitment is the real reason why he wants to leave.

I know what you are saying Ruby Ruby, but Odemwingie was declaring his love until 2 weeks ago when QPR came in, he was happy to sign a new deal and then as short time ago as the summer just gone declared his love once again.

I wouldnt believe a word that comes out of his mouth, every window the speculation surrounds him, this time its real, as many have said myself included, if he is that desperate for the money and wants to go then so be it,  he has every right to want to leave but there are ways of doing it and also a thing called dignity and respect and with his actions he has shown none to the club and its fans and i hope in return that the Albion show him no respect either.

Met Pete in Sutton Coldfield today and asked him if he is going and his reply was "I hope so".  The reason is he wants regular first team football in his favourite position up front which he is not getting with us.  Steve asked if he could try out a few games in the wider position which he has done but he does not enjoy it.  It seems he is put out by our "loan player" playing in his position although he says he is good friends with Romelu.  He was unsure if he was going to QPR.

Problem is its behind closed door where he should be airing his grievances not on a social network site where thousands of his clubs followers will see every word and his comments declaring has love for the club have made it worse.

He's either got a screw loose or some bad advisors.

A few pages ago someone on here posted a video of the 2010/2011 season of Pete. He scored 15 goals that season and his love for the club and fans was genuine in his celebrations. Now, every goal in that video, what position was PO playing?... He was upfront, on the shoulder of the last defender. Thats where he is best and most lethal.

Now, I'm not going to point fingers at Clarke or any of the management staff here, however, you have to see the guys point. He is an out and out striker. He loves to score goals, and thats what the guy does best. Now, i can agree with most on here that he has a sulk every now and again and has been inconsistent this year. However, ask your self this, if someone brings in a 19yr old to do the same job you do, and have done pretty well so far (15 goals 10/11 season) wouldn't you be a little nervous and hurt? Now, is the right way to handle that business in the public media? No. However, we have no idea what goes on behind the scenes of our club. He may have had conversations with Clarke about his displeasure of playing out of position, and Clarke may be just sticking to his guns, as most managers do. Its no surprise to me that he handed in a transfer request. Im a wide player, and if i was asked to play RB for a few games i would in a heart beat. HOwever, if i was asked to do it and then never saw my position again and i was sitting the bench, or playing RB for the season after a "Loanee" came in, well its only human nature to be upset...

I do not agree with the way PO has handled this situation at all, however, in my job, if a 18/19yr old came in and was doing a decent job but not as well as i know i can do it and i was asked to take a secondary role after proving i am the man for the job... I can see where pete may be a little hurt. Also, this talk i see of how we saved him and gave him the chance of English football. Yes, i agree and no i don't at the same time. At some point someone would have noticed him out there, but it was albion who gave him the offer first, and again you can see his genuine thanks and love for the club in the video posted. If i was in charge he would be one of the first names on the team sheet every week, sulk or no sulk, he really can turn a game around with a moment of magic...

Thanks for everything Pete! If it wasn't for your 15 goals then we wouldnt be where we are now... IMO, your "debt" as most see it was repaid. If you want to play upfront then i bid you farewell, if Albion cant give you that...

If it wasnt for Odemwingie`s goals then we wouldnt even be in the Premier League,
I dont want fans having sour grapes cause thats the sort of thing Villa fans do.
Everyone knows OW is acting like a spoilt brat at the moment but we all also know he`s short of a full deck.

So if we hadn't of signed him we would have automatically signed someone s**** and been relegated? Sound logic that.

I don't have sour grapes, I've never rated him as highly as many fans on or off this website. I've also never said he's no good, I just don't think he should he deserves to be idolised in the manner which he is by our fans based on performances and off the field conduct.

If you were to slate your employers and customers in a similar vein to what PO has done what do you think would happen? I see people on here saying he needs to feel valued and that he's making a big contribution. Christ, you'd expect that maybe from a class of primary school children not from a man of 31 with a family earning 40k a week.

Post by: PsalmXXIII on January 26, 2013, 05:49:46 PM
You can defend his reasons but you cannot defend his actions.

Agreed. But the things he say can easily be combated with logic;

A) He wants to play in 'his normal position'. His normal position BEFORE us for both club and country was out wide, we played him where we did because he showed promise there. Ok he's played out of the position we gave him this year, but this is the first we're hearing of any grievances about position from him. Again a lot goes on behind the scenes, but if you're not happy don't talk sh*t on TV saying we're a club you love dearly.

B) He's scored three goals this season (again he's out of position, but that doesn't stop him coming forward, Lukaku heads out wide a lot, as does Long). He wont make any impact at QPR much like the rest of our 'leave for better things' players (Koumas, Kamara, Davies, Robinson, Thomas K, etc.) and with the squad they have he'll be back behind the likes of Zamora, Remy, Cisse (when he returns), Taraabt.

C) Do QPR even bl*ody want him? I've heard initial approaches, but Harry 'I don't like talking about other teams players, lets talk about them for half an hour' Redknapp hasn't shown his usual enthusiasm for this transfer. If Pete wants to play football, he's going to the wrong team. If he wants to play under a good manager, he's going to the wrong team.  I have no doubt someone from QPR has spoken to him this week, why else would he kick off now and not at the start of the window? Surely if he hated it here, he could have said so long ago.

IMO he's a very very stupid boy, despite the fact he MAY (I emphasize MAY) have other reasons for wanting to go, it doesn't add up. He's unhappy in his position, he's outspoken enough for us to have got wind of it before now. He wants a new challenge, he's had a relegation scrap with us before.

I hope, and I hate saying it about someone I've enjoyed watching play, but I hope he goes the same way as the other clowns who think they're better than this club. He's acted appallingly, and a nice wage cut and a reputation for being a fool will suit me fine.

Most media reporting it as slagging the fans off, including Nigerian news agencies who understand his more colloquial slang and if they see it that way....

I dont think people saying "he isn't slagging of he fans" can really be that certain in their views if i'm honest.

So he needs the extra money for spelling lessons because last time i used my spell checker there was no i in team! i would also be pretty sure that it was down to him umming and ahhhing in the August window that led us to bring in Lukaku in case HRO decided to leave late in the window as he has this time

Jacko , you and i have backed him probably more than most on here but it's time to pull heads out of the sand.
Odemwingie has crapped on us , Clarke , the club and his team mates .He was happy enough to sign his bumper contract yet first real sniff of a bigger offer and he is desperate to go.
The manner in which he has handled this situation over the last two days has been shocking and i generally hope he is fined the maximum possible amount from the club for his out bursts especially on Twitter today. He has really let himself and us down over this and to be coming out with rubbish reasons as to why he wants to leave shows what a weak person he is mentally and also just what a selfish tosser he is too.I'd give him 100% more credit if just kept quiet in public and did things in private but to try to show us up in this way has left a very sour taste with  me.The line on Twitter saying "I always get what i want" or words to that effect sums Pete up now for me.
Not as serious as Bednar or Hoult granted but awful behaviour in all fairness , lost my support as a person today.

Its like those stats MOTD produce saying 'United would be in X position without RVP's goals' people don't take into account the fact we could/would have probably signed someone else. On the topic of his goals, we gave him his big chance to play down the middle as he always wanted and never before got throughout his career.

Players have left us before for better money, yet have done so with class and dignity. Just look at the likes of Gera and Bob Taylor. The latter being an actual great Albion goalscorer. Odemwingie isn't fit to be mentioned on the same page as some of our true goalscoring greats.

It amuses me when footballers complain about being played out of position. Sorry, but when you sign a contract with the club, I'm pretty sure there's nothing in the contract that says you can only play in a certain position. You play where the manager plays you.

His celebration against Villa was pathetic. "ME! ME!" and pointing to himself. He's such a tool and I'm so glad everyone has finally agreed that he is a selfish twonk.

This merry go round has gone on long enough, every transfer window PO has tried to manipulate the club to get what he wants , either a move on big wages or a new contract on big wages. The guy is a mercenary pure and simple . he also happens to be a talented player and he will obviously move on now.
Lets put our trust in JP to make the best deal for the club and when PO does return lets give him the reception he deserves from a club who have made him and paid him handsomely over the past few years and a player who has so callously dragged our name through the mud for personal gain .
The comments from his fellow Nigerian international players and national manager sum up what people in the game think about him  !!!!

Look at it this way:

He's outspoken, speaks to the media a lot (don't we know it, heard some right corkers off him in the past about transfer talk) and he waits until NOW to bring up he's unhappy out of position, and that he feels like he's not needed. Why this week? He could have said at the start of the window surely? And the change in tone after the Villa game (I love the club, transfers are for the club to sort out not me) shows someone's said something to him about money (surely some foul play?).

I don't buy this 'out of position' crap. PO needs to get over himself.
One minute he is happy to play out wide then the next he isn't .Cash offers do that to people.

If he wants to go then let him, better players have come and gone in the past and we've progressed, no reason why we wont again. he tweeted something about, tweeting what he did wont harm his chances of a move. hmm, imagine, QPR realised what sort of character he is, decide to move onto other targets and the move doesnt happen, window shuts! where does that leave us/him? would you play him again this season? he certainly hasn't made it easy for people to want to see him on the pitch again has he...

Every utterance from Odemwingie is self serving justification of the fact that he wants more money. The latest "they questioned my commitment" well the poor dear if I recall some of his half assed performances of the first half of last season I think the coach then had every reason to question his commitment.

I posted earlier with remarks along the lines of "sell him"! Upon reflection, there may be a whole other spin to be put on this situation. PO has been truly contemptuous, and shown a deep lack of respect for our beloved club. We're all aware just what a shrewd operator Jeremy Peace is and I can see many other scenarios unfolding. I would bet anyone on this forum that he is deeply looking into the legalities of this 'conflict of interests'; i.e, breach of contract, slander, illegal approaches, tapping up, misuse of social media.......the list could go on. There is an important moral point to make by WBA here.......PO is employed and has a boss to answer to, you accept that position every time a contact is signed. He can leave yes - but ONLY if Jez gets the money he wants - simple. I would even go as far to say that Jez could claw enough money back to put the out spoken bas***d in the reserves for the rest of the season and still get 3 mil + come the end. We have to show existing players as well as potential recruits that if you sign for WBA, you understand that we will look after you provided we're not fu**ed about. We do not want to set a precedent here and should all pull together to make an example of his conduct!

There is not problem with the draw of a huge 'pay day' 'if it happens'!.....but lets make him an example of how it shouldn't be done!

I say f**k him!! Treat him with the very same level of disdain...........P.s , I'm not bitter and I'm normally a hoot!!! ;D

I wouldn't take Odemwingies decision to move to QPR too personally. He's just looking for one last pay day before his career ends. All he can see is a big signing on fee and a decent pay packet for 12 months. I think its totally irrelevant what team or league he's in.

Couldn't agree more with you. Hell, I wouldn't have cared if he'd just been honest and said QPR had offered me megabucks and it's too good to turn down. That statement is both hurtful and disingenuous to very people who pay his wages, us, the fans. I hope he goes now I really do.

He won't admit to the money aspect as officialLy he's spoken to no one.

As soon as he admits to something like that the club would be taking him to court for breach of contract quicker than you can say money bags.

If that's all he can see then what a stupid individual. He ply's his trade in the biggest league in the world under a global media microscope,  paid a S***e load of money, and doesn't have the intelligence to understand that he will be judged upon his actions and decisions. 'Pay Day' I fully accept and understand. Kicking off via social media sites and disrespecting fans who spend huge percentages of their incomes to follow and support him is a 'low blow'. He should have more class......I'm sad to say he lacks it in abundance!

I haven't got a problem with "One last Payday" I've got a problem with how he's acted publicly with that statement. He made his name with us and after with what happened in Russia. We as fans have always treated him with respect. I don't ask for loyalty in the modern game there is none but I would like a bit of respect back. He's a total dick in my opinion

Lukaku handles himself impeccably and so far is an example to ALL young footballers. He's articulate, passionate and everyone can see he's working very hard to improve his game. At his a age he is a far higher calibre of person that PO could ever be. He really doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath! I also class Long in the same bracket.

Dear Pete,
Please leave West Brom as soon as possible. Thanks for all you have over the last few years but you have proved it is time to move on.
With every statement and tweet you lose the respect of those WBA fans who have chanted your name and even bought a banner supporting you (with their own money - some dont earn 39k a week).
West Brom will move on and thanks to your recent behaviour, any legacy you had built at the club has been discredited.
Onwards and upwards West Brom, good luck Pete.

Well it was almost as good as a weekend in Magaluf, I reckon there will be a load of rope, razor blades & paracetamol sold in Aston & the surrounding areas tomorrow & we think we have it bad.

Back on topic, if we play hardball (& I certainly hope we do) & fat arry's band pull out of the transfer, what then? no self respecting Albion fan is going to welcome him back in the famous navy blue & white are they?, for me Pete's standing at the abyss (Tevez style) but I don't think he can pull himself back from this.

Full respect, but that is a contender for shitest post of the day. A VERY small minority have been on Brunty's back in recent weeks and he has handled it superbly. Many professional footballers understand fans frustrations and I firmly believe that Brunty is his own worst critic. He has been a wonderful servant to our club........a class fellow.

Some more from him;

want to know incase they don't extend it in the summer. Don't want another summer window not knowing what will happen

because now I ll have to move my little son elsewhere. He needs his nice room prepared in advance and I prepare my wife's mind

because she is already attached to our new house and family here and so on. Already crying now. What will happen then ?

could be italy, Spain, Qatar, China, Russia, Turkey, America. Her parents will start crying their daughter going too far

 :-\ So he's moaning about having to move his family elsewhere, when it's his decision to want to move?

What he is saying now basically is at this moment in time he can make a final move in his career to QPR on big money. Which will kill two birds with 1 stone. He gets the last pay day and stays in england. If he has to wait until the summer then he could be off anywhere spain,italy etc which isnt what he wants because of his new english family.

He knows WBA will not extend his contract past 2014 as he will be 32. He would definatley not get any more money.

these are good reasons for a transfer request in my eyes and i cant blame him. But the manner he has done it and the lies in his statement have just put him down the road of being hated.

From what i can tell they are ok with it (they have enough like him) and know he's a good player.

They do know he's coming for the money though, more jokes about that than actually discussion about him!

If anyone fancies translating his latest rants, would be appreciated.

also England don't believe after 30 plyers should get long contracts. One year contracts. Even great Lampard, Drogba,and so on

Pirlo didn't think so during the euro cup. Hahaha sent everyone msgs during the game vs England. Example at wba ? Scharner

so basically club told me - boy you go kill your self till may so people still think u good. Just 14 games son. U can do it !

so we make profit from the season. And also squeeze maximum on the transfer( because inside us we know u don't want to stay here)

after all I have contributed to the clubs success last two seasons I hoped to at least get a low prise. Answer- talk later

we promise in the summer we will not leave you on a last year. because we know what happens to players on last year. J. Thomas

He's basically saying he wants to go for security and that the Albion have no plans to extend his contarct past his current one due to his age i.e. Scharner! so he as asked to move because the bid has come in now and he'd rather go now and get his family sorted rather than be in limbo for the rest of the season!!!

Apparently the powers that be asked him to work his socks of for the team and they'd review in the summer he see's this as us trying to drive the price, where as he thinks he should be allowed to leave for next to nothing as a reward for what he's done for us!

Its getting a bit messy and its a real shame!

The last bit about wanting to stay in England I understand BUT he's not pulling the wool over my eyes with the sob story. Ben Foster exceeds as an example for all other pro footballers wanting to keep the family happy, he could have earnt mega bucks but wanted to stay local so chose us. If it wasnt anout money theres plently of clubs in the area he could drop down to if he wanted a more stable contract.
Shame Pete believes his own hype and thinks he's bigger than the club.. oh and ofcourse we want to make as much money out of it as possible that's what business is about odemwinger. Derr.

He's just tweeted that the biggest compliment he's ever recieved in his career is a manager like Harry Redknapp wanting to spend money on him to help with 'Mission Impossible'!

States he wishes he'd handed in transfer request last Jan and was on his way to Ruben Kazan, we turned down Newcastle, Wigan, Fulham. Bet the Wo1ve5 wished he went last Jan!!  ;D

Surely us turning down all those bids should be the biggest compliment of his career!!!!!

If he came out with this at the beginning then he would not be in the position he is in now. He should of came out and said

 "I need security in my contract due to my age and offer has come in that supports me and my new family. I could not be happier with WBA for what they have done for my career and I wish them all the best for the future. I would appreciate it if that myself, the club and the fans can support and repect me through this hard decision"

If he said this I would suggest that the majority of people would say thank you pete for being honest and good luck to you and your new family

am i right?

Lukaku handles himself impeccably and so far is an example to ALL young footballers. He's articulate, passionate and everyone can see he's working very hard to improve his game. At his a age he is a far higher calibre of person that PO could ever be. He really doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath! I also class Long in the same bracket.

Good points - Long and Lukaku have been model pros so far.

Pete is turning into a pantomime character just because he cannot get his own way - total lack of respect for us fans and the coaching staff.

That all sounds very feasible and quite possible. Sadly I feel it's complete balls! He has personally stated, "when I want do do something, I do it"! ...............He has 'created' at every given opportunity (cash, contracts etc) and is clearly so self indulged, he takes his personal monetary issues into a whole new stratosphere with a blind disregard for the people that have supported him (club and fans).

I guess from his POV this will work for him. He's completely made his position untenable at the club and probably annoyed a lot of the players as well, he know's we run a tight ship so we can't afford to keep him to not play him (although I imagine he'll be getting a maximum fine for these outbursts) so we'll pretty much have to sell him. It's pretty much a case of who blinks first between us and QPR, if they hold out till the end of deadline day they'll probably get him for 3m.

I also find QPR's low bid quite suspicious, I suspect he's told them, or at least his agent, that they will kick up a fuss this end to get him as cheap as possible.

It makes no sense that they would offer 5m for Olsson which I think we'd all agree is a reasonable offer for a nearly 30 year old centre back, but then someone a year older with 30 goals in 80 games is only deemed worth 2m.

Well at least we wont have to pay him a month's wages if he does stay. Due to the fact he will get fined the minute he walks through the training room door.

He is mentioning club business and mentioning players and ex players names. I actually cant believe what im reading to be honest. This is all his reply up until he goes on about 2pac and mentioning song lyrics

ok pal I remember you from your previous tweets. Your a good guy. I tell you what really happened. Offer came everybody knows
I ask club what they think ? Answer - not now. Maybe summer. I ask- or is it tactics to get more money? Answer- we have enough
now there is no prise for you. We need you. I say ok. What's the prise for summer ? We will tell you after the window closes.
I laugh and say. Then I have nothing in hand. Give me something to hold on to. Meanwhile I don't complain I ve not been happy
I say - I have served the club well and deserve at least to have a prise now so I can plan my probably last move in England
want to know incase they don't extend it in the summer. Don't want another summer window not knowing what will happen
because now I ll have to move my little son elsewhere. He needs his nice room prepared in advance and I prepare my wife's mind
because she is already attached to our new house and family here and so on. Already crying now. What will happen then ?
could be italy, Spain, Qatar, China, Russia, Turkey, America. Her parents will start crying their daughter going too far
also England don't believe after 30 plyers should get long contracts. One year contracts. Even great Lampard, Drogba,and so on
Pirlo didn't think so during the euro cup. Hahaha sent everyone msgs during the game vs England. Example at wba ? Scharner
so basically club told me - boy you go kill your self till may so people still think u good. Just 14 games son. U can do it !
so we make profit from the season. And also squeeze maximum on the transfer( because inside us we know u don't want to stay here)

we promise in the summer we will not leave you on a last year. because we know what happens to players on last year. J. Thomas
sorry bro if you not happy I mentioned your name.
if I am on the bench many games now what will happen next season ? Then it's really Dubai after for me. I still want EPL !!!
they gave me a proverb. It's not the size of the frog but the stone or something like that. Means who ll come for me
so they want to reduce what I will get from the move. I thought they had enough. Principle thing ? I am a strong head too
so because mr nice guy Pete said like eddy murphy in his performance ( hilarious) I think - head down leaving the office - Ok
so when I got home I looked in the mirror and said -you see your life ? Hahaha ok let me call my people.They said -what ?!!!
at 32 in summer size of the frog Or stone ? La ila . As ukwa said - me that have paid tax in advance with 30 EPL goals ?
best compliment I have ever received in my carrier as a player. manager like HR spending to bring me for mission "impossible"
last season January window is when I should have handed in transfer request. Was one foot in Rubin Kazan - not for sale

Whilst many (rightly) are angry and wishing all manor of things to happen, he is still our player, we are still playing him and even though tonight has been almost comedic all these tweets may serve to remind any prospective purchaser that he may be a risk they don't want to take.
Personally I think it's best if we don't hold out too long just to prove a point, my fear is buyers will run off and we get left with a player alienated from fans, teammates and club hierarchy .

Goodbye and good luck with your future career Mr Odemwingie.
We've have plenty of memories and thank you for all you have helped this club achieve in the short time you have been here.
Unfortunately the grass is never greener and I feel sorry you will find this out and have to look back on what could have been with a little integrity and committment towards your current employers.
You could have been a legend with these supporters but you have now become a joke.
When your career ends.. and it will sooner than you want it to... I hope you can learn that respect has to be earned in any position in life.
You have no respect here so move on and don't look back because we don't want you either.

This is a mess but QPR will bail him out with an improved offer and he knows it, the club will probably conclude that he is more trouble than he is worth and cut a deal by Thursday tea time. Did not want to lose him and it is a pity that his time at the club has ended on such a sour note but I will now be glad to see the back of him.

I'm going to try and take off my wba tinted specs for a moment and try and rationalise all this in my own head ,because it's all a right dogs breakfast.

I do actually think he feels something for the club and the fans. He has been worried that he's going to be left out in the cold because of his age and the fact that SL and RL are ahead oh him in the 1 striker role, hence he mentions PS. He tries to seek assurance from the club about his longer term future with the club, which the club wont give (understandably). He wants to stay in this country because of his new family. Gets an offer of more money to stay in the UK for the next couple of seasons to finish off his career and make life "more" comfortable for his family.

Comes out with comments to try an expedite a move ( bad advice from his representatives), and it goes tits up.

Tries to explain and justify things on twitter.... makes it worse.

I'm actually starting to feel a bit sorry for the guy, if all he is saying is true. At the end of the day it's just his job. This means he wants the best for his future and his new family.

Don't get me wrong it could of been done SO much more professionally but we are talking about footballers and dumb ass advisors here. It still feels like I've come home to find him in bed with the missus and to then find out he's been doing my sister on the side, but rationally it's just a job. WE are the ones with the emotional attachment. Not the players.

Let him go with our good will (Let's be the bigger men) and thank him for what he has done.

I just hope this whole sorry scenario will make some of the brunt, rosenburg & jt boo boys have a long hard look at themselves.

Pete..... Shut the **** up you'e only making it worse. Be honest (which I think he is finally starting to be) go to QPR and thanks for the good times.

I was being Tongue in cheek about feeling sorry for him, he must have the worst self esteem. The bentley comment is the worst. He's lost the plot. We took the nick out of wolves on the #headsgone moment but this p*sses all over that!

they still go on about the #headsgone moment on talksh*te now. What will they make of this!

To be honest it's getting geniuinely bizzare now - Seems like he is very mentally unstable.


He is. He's uneducated as well as he clearly doesn't understand the double negative in the English language.  I can't stand shallow to**ers like him. Just fk him off.

Quite amazing this constant stream of tweets. Either the guy is mentally unstable or engineering a move on the terms he wants or a combination of both.

Not sure how the club can best handle this but it seems inevitable that he won't be playing again for the first team should he remain until the end of the season.

I'm more concerned about what this means for SC's squad. Sure we can cash in, but I would rather have the money out on the pitch rather than in the bank, i.e. I'd be reluctant to sell without a replacement in place. A part- exchange might be one way, but the player we got back would probably not be  a forward of equivalent quality. However, if we could force QPR to allow Taarabt to move, he would add quality to the squad.
On the subject of QPR, I wonder what Pete makes of them being knocked out of the Cup by MK. Remember MK are 2 divisions lower. The other thing is that one of the first things Harry said when joining QPR is that he wanted players who really gave their guts for the club. Made an example of Boswinga. And then he let Cisse go out on loan to some Middle East club basically because he didn't put a shift in. So what does he know about Pete's attitude and commitment levels. I also remember Harry saying how could a club (like QPR) pay top wages when they had a ground capacity  of only 18,000. It sounds like he just makes it up as he goes along.

If QPR do go down, then the consequences will be close to catastrophic. Their wage-bill will need some serious trimming (see what Villa are going through at the moment); players such as Julio Cesar, Jose Bosingwa, Stephane M'Bia, and now obviously Odemwingie are likely to be on seriously big deals which won't necessarily have relegation clauses. Majority of players would probably need to be sold for cut-price deals, the ones that stay wouldn't be too chuffed about having to play in the dogfight that is the Championship and generally the whole bubble around QPR would be burst in dramatic style as they are spending a massive amount more than they are actually getting into the club, basically if you want to see the results of that see Portsmouth and to a lesser extent Rangers.

Redknapp's reputation of leaving a trail of clubs in a financial turmoil and having football club owners and chairmen pull their pants down for him isn't unfounded, as the fans of the Bournemouths,  Portsmouths, Southamptons and even West Hams of this world will tell you bluntly, so Peter, good luck to you mate, and for YOUR sake I hope you stay up, because if QPR go down, you'll regret it in more ways than one.

Disgraceful, just read all the other tweets. What an absolute selfish and ungrateful person he is, has done himself no favours for a move anywhere, his career is on a downward spiral and with that attitude I can't say I really care less. Looking forward to hearing what the club have to say about all this and also the FA.

I'm going to try and take off my wba tinted specs for a moment and try and rationalise all this in my own head ,because it's all a right dogs breakfast.

I do actually think he feels something for the club and the fans. He has been worried that he's going to be left out in the cold because of his age and the fact that SL and RL are ahead oh him in the 1 striker role, hence he mentions PS. He tries to seek assurance from the club about his longer term future with the club, which the club wont give (understandably). He wants to stay in this country because of his new family. Gets an offer of more money to stay in the UK for the next couple of seasons to finish off his career and make life "more" comfortable for his family.

Comes out with comments to try an expedite a move ( bad advice from his representatives), and it goes tits up.

Tries to explain and justify things on twitter.... makes it worse.

I'm actually starting to feel a bit sorry for the guy, if all he is saying is true. At the end of the day it's just his job. This means he wants the best for his future and his new family.

Don't get me wrong it could of been done SO much more professionally but we are talking about footballers and dumb ass advisors here. It still feels like I've come home to find him in bed with the missus and to then find out he's been doing my sister on the side, but rationally it's just a job. WE are the ones with the emotional attachment. Not the players.

Let him go with our good will (Let's be the bigger men) and thank him for what he has done.

I just hope this whole sorry scenario will make some of the brunt, rosenburg & jt boo boys have a long hard look at themselves.

Pete..... Shut the **** up you'e only making it worse. Be honest (which I think he is finally starting to be) go to QPR and thanks for the good times.

Great post

His twitter rumblings don't really make that much sense to me. Going on his tweets late last night it seems he's pretty much wanted out in every window despite signing a new deal when he did. However he also seems to imply that the reason he's been like that is because he didn't think we would offer him a long term deal in the near future, again that makes no real sense as it was him that wanted to sign a shorter contract than he actually did with us it was the club that wanted the initial longer deal.

I've come to the conclusion he didn't expect the backlash off fans that he got after his pathetic statement and he's trying to justify himself but made things ten times worse.

Enjoy your last big pay cheque Peter as the club that you go to wont have a fan base where the majority worshipped you, it's a shame you had to tarnish your reputation for greed.

I am so disappointed, but not surprised, he was  favourite player by a county mile, but what this highlights (and we all knew really) there is no loyalty these days from the football clubs nor players.
I understand to a point why he wishes to leave (financial - although we ordinary paid folk struggle to understand as we cannot compare 300 per week to 39k per week) but there is a way of doing this, and PO is not doing this...... However, as he points out, you are only loved for your last goal and if someone else better comes along and starts scoring, you are no longer wanted. There's a bloke who sits behind me, and every game he slags off PO, i have posted before that the guy is our best player and we will not realise what we have until he leaves, well we'll see now :) Its a real shame this didn't get sorted earlier, as i really think Chris Wood could have been given his opportunity here.

Pete, thanks for the goals, and thanks for reminding me how fickle footballers, fans and clubs are. But please be quiet now, and show the same class you have as a player in who you are as a person, as at the momemt you are acting like a right TWA*

So how does everyone see this panning out?

I think QPR will be very clever now. They will let the dust settle for a few days then probably come back with a 3 million 'take it or leave it' offer on deadline day. It's not the figure we want but what do the club do?

I can't see any way that he can play for the club again and theres no way we can have 40k per week worth of wages training with the youth team.

Can't see anyone else wanting him after his outburst so this could get very messy.

If we want to have him play for us again we will have to check him in at some clinic for a few weeks and say PO had a mental breakdown, put some pills in him and have a doctor give a diagnosis.

The fool doesn't realize that he is burning his bridges not only with us, but with all clubs in England. Who would possibly want a disturbed tosser like him around?

It's not only WBA fans that are watching this mental implosion with fascinated disgust.

For QPR to accept him after this shows the real depth of their desperation.

The Olde 'damaged goods ploy' eh?

I think I'd do what I suggested above. Have some mental health experts check up on PO. Then quietly let him go in the summer. Some Turkish/Quatari/etc club will pay the same amount of a QPR lowball offer anyway. If the doctors find him sane, just fine PO for the wages this spring.

Look at QPR yesterday, shocking team shocking performance, Rednap has no coaching skills and shouldnt be mentioned in the same breathe as ROY....

He is pimping around Europe to try and get a few players to survive...PO will be one of them and binned when the time is right !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i would let him train by himself and get shot of him in the summer.
We would get 3million for him then so as far as QPR are concerned they can do one.

His exact word were "Dad he never deserves to wear an Albion shirt ever again! Wish I I knew where he lived I would cycle there and give it him myself!"

I am totally and utterly disgusted by the whole thing and hope the club do everything in their power to make a stance!  Forget money this is principle that the club have to make a stance! Not just for us but for all football supporters and show that no player is above any club and its fans!

We always conduct our business in the right way and have confidence the club will do the same!

Seeing the post on Monopoly has made me think. Why doesn't everyone wave Monopoly money at the next game? Would be better than booing him and would be a bit tongue in cheek (the club doesn't have real money to spend lol)  :-*

As a side note -
I'm aware we're by no means a poor club, but this month we've only sold and loaned players out and brought in nothing, a few injuries and we'll be screwed.

Back to Pete, even if he does go this window, I can't see us replacing him yet. It will more than likely be in the summer.

As a player and for what he has done for us including goals against Wo1ve5 and Villa, i love Peter Odemwingie. However since friday at around 4:30pm the guy as really gone down hill quicker than the Villa!!

My opinion is the club need to make a stance on this one and dig their heels in (unless we get over the top money). I think if we cave (which i dont think we will) then it will set a presidence for players engineering a move away from us! We cant be seen to be a soft touch and i'm sure JP will feel th same.

The guy simply cant play for the club again, end of. So unless a big bid comes in make him sit tight, take a hit on his wages (we have budgeted for them already so no real additional cost) and cash in, in the summer at which point i'd just let him go to the highest bidder if there are any!

His outburst as shown himself up not only to fans at our club but across the world, hes made his bed..........

As for the Albion onwards and upwards! BOINGBOING

If a player behaves in such a way that he severely reduces his transfer value, then the club could sue him.  Chelsea did this with Mutu when they had to sack him over his drug habits, and he ended up bankrupt as a result.  Man City could have ultimately done the same to Tevez if he had not come back.   QPR and Newcastle likewise had that option with Barton.

Of course the majority of situations get resolved, but I would totally support JP if he took a really tough stance with Odemwingie to remind him of the obligations of a signed contract.
