West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Slaven Bilic
« on: September 19, 2020, 02:16:29 PM »
Bilic isn't the problem here, he's trying to get blood out of a stone. We've got few players of PL quality, we NEED a real striker and we NEED one now, not to mention a keeper (Button needs a chance). Ivanovic will hopefully help sure up our defence so im not so worried about that just yet.

Bilic got us promoted first try and he hasn't been backed fully, he doesnt have a realistically capable squad. He's not the problem here, he needs time and backing

I really don't get why this guy owns the club. He puts no money in, he gets no money out (apparently). Like I legitimately don't understand his motivation for owning us (and continuing to do so)

What a screamer, we do like a good free kick at Goodison dont we.

If we manage to hold onto a point or more I'll happily eat humble pie 🥧

Does anyone know why Racist Jamie doesn't like our fans? Made another dig post match about us but I feel like i'm forgetting something.

Tbf we do give him dogs abuse at the Hawthorns generally

I love it  :D

Agree, think its really eye catching and makes us look unique within the division, especially with our young squad.

Going to up my prediction from relegation to 14th-17th after our recent signings.

If we can get this through what a signing. Pray everyone 🙏

« on: July 25, 2020, 05:32:38 PM »
Those players good enough for the Premier League
O'shea (Think he's the right mold for a PL fullback and will grow into the league)
Sawyers (early season form)

Those who could 'do a job' or play bit part roles

Those not good enough and should be offloaded

Sorry, but he just can't be relied upon on the big occasions.

I've backed him to the hills and back but my patience ran out last night. Neither goal was his fault as such but thats half the problem, he seldom bails out the defence whereas great (or even just good) goalies do. 90% of decent shots against him either are too close to going in for my liking or in the net.

Backup keeper at best im afraid

Where are you guys watching?

At least Diangana will be back.

Didnt think about this, this is actually quite a big boost

"Start Bond next game"
"Johnstone is awful"
"What's Bond got to do to get a game"

Johnstone haters, next time these thoughts come to mind, think of tonight.

It only takes one nasty challenge by some frustrated player in a team seemingly headed for league 1 for Pereira's career to be ended and millions (or 10s of millions) of pounds to be lost for him. The referee's have let him get knocked around all over the park in some games whilst we get red cards for minor incidents. I don't like it but I fully understand why players who are 'just too good' for the opponents sometimes feel the need to protect themselves by diving.

Need to get him signed up to a long contract if possible now, no coincidence that hes turned the club round. 3 or 4 year contract with a slight flex down for relegation (if he'd agree) would be a fantastic start to the summer window.

I notice Harry Maguire doesn't get a 3 game retrospective ban for kicking a player square in the testicles out of anger. Don't miss a trick when it comes to Albion though, we get our star player banned for a slight contact with the face during a tussle for the ball.

Funny that isn't it FA...

As with Pereira and several other incidents, refs using every opportunity they get to give us cards. Silly of him to do it (as with Pereira) but another harsh red and a key player missing for 3 games for something that happens week in week out to us.

Suprised no ones posted on here after the Milwall game, Bartley was an absolute rock for 90 minutes. My man of the match.

I think we could get him permanently should we get promoted, playing in the Premier League for a team you've already gelled/settled will be a massive pull. I really like the guy but I'm still not fully convinced he'd hack it in the Prem just yet, he's definitely improved as the season's gone on though as I don't think he's miles off currently. Still relatively young at 24 so still not in his prime just yet which is also worth bearing in mind.

I think also, to be fair, a footballers career can be a very short one due to injury.  Of course it would be nice if he accepted the lower offer, rejected Prem football to stay with us and look for a bigger money move in the future but, it comes with a lot of risk.

I could understand this argument normally, but in this instance it makes no sense.

How does rejecting a 5 year 20k a week contract with a large add on in favour of staying on a >1k a week youth contract for 9 months make any financial sense if its safety first. Hes probably already lost out on the extra money he'd have got from the palace move just by staying on his youth contract here, hes losing 19k a week atm by playing hardball. He could have a career ending injury in training this week or next game and retire with next to nothing, whereas if he signed the contract hes a guaranteed multimillionaire.

When Grady, Gibbo and Pereira are all back in the same team alongside our new firepower we'll look a different team to the last 6-7 games. A poor run of form was/is inevitable in the championship, it's the toughest division in England imo, it's how quickly you bounce back from these baron runs that decides whether you get promoted or not.

Still back us to go up as champions.
