Thankyou for the kind comments. My personal challenge is being a single dad of 3 very small children. When speaking to the doctor this challenge was expressed in detail, as if it would make my life easier. Being a parent isn’t easy and taking the easy option for me would have been completely selfish. The amount of comments I’ve had similar to the stories above is frightening. I would really push the alternatives first, there are so many out there.

I should say I live in Australia but the problem seems common in most western countries.

Touching story pal. Good on you pal for what you're doing for your son. God bless you mate !

Thanks mate, I posted on my Facebook feed and got lots of questions from friends so thought I would put it here in case people have similar issues with their kids

I wanted to share something with you about my 8 year old. He was having behavioural issues at school and eventually I attended a doctor at the request of the school. The doctor didn’t examine my son but went on a report written by a school psychologist (new to the job) who observed him for about 20 mins in class. The doctor diagnosed him with ADHD and then went on a sales pitch about dexyamphetamines and other stimulants. I was mortified and gave the doctor a mouthful and walked out, especially when he called my son into the room and told him that he will be giving him pills to fix his brain. Didn’t take into account his mother has just left us and the turmoil he is going through or the fact he is a middle child.

I looked at alternatives and ultimately I changed his diet and the way I deal with him. I reduced/removed sugar from his diet and also as much gluten as possible. He is now a different kid, doing well in school and don’t get me wrong still a pain sometimes. A doctor friend told me he is regularly pushed to “sell” medication and is offered incentives. I work with offenders who mostly are addicted, this how it starts. I’m not disputing it works for some extreme cases but please consider alternatives like diet. Working really well for me.

It was "we hate Villa, West Brom" all through the 70's and early 80's.

Yeah I'm pretty sure I remember it being that aswell.

I’m abit nervous about writing this one but I was a copper in a certain part of birmingham and gave a villa captain 2 seatbelt infringements for his kids not wearing seatbelts in the back. He was livid especially when I asked him his occupation. Very cocky. Longtime ago though, he was ex baggies aswell but was a waste of time for us.

now that we are out of it and more neutral who you want win premier League?.

For me

prefer someone outside top 6 as long as its not Wolves

if top 6 anyone but Liverpool after Klopp's nonsense last year after our draw.

That would be a very good poll question!

West Bromwich Albion FC / Has social media made is over critical
« on: August 14, 2018, 12:33:23 AM »
I’m a long time guest/member on this forum and is it me or have some of the recent opinions on here and social media become more personal. I don’t recall such anger towards our club from our so called own. I get it’s peoples opinions and it’s a forum but recently I saw an overtly racist comment about Lai that was promptly taken down, the comments about DM and the way he speaks I find insulting to the man and the comments about Nyom (granted not particularly on this site) are personal attacks on him. I get it his not very good on occasion, now move on.

I’ve always been suspicious of comments written on social media and I remember on this site some years ago fans from other teams coming on and stirring the pot with us but I have to wonder what’s become of us as baggies fans. It must just be me but I don’t remember us being so critical......is it the Pulis/Pardew era?

I put this post on Nyom’s topic. It’s not aimed at people who have genuine criticisms of players but has it become to personal?

Any abuse Nyom is receiving on social media is an absolute disgrace.

He’s been an excellent servant but I feel that we have signed more than an adequate replacement in Johnstone

I agree, has the selling Lescott, feel about it. Disappointed we've lost a good player but somebody coming to the end of his career and replaced him with a highly rated younger replacement.

Wish him all the best, for me the last couple of months wont tarnish a great baggies career.

I think it’s really good news, any fresh blood in the management pool is good news. Millionaire footballers don’t need the extra stress and I have extra respect for  Gerrard and Lampard for giving it a crack.

Really excited for next season. Great to have a baggies man at the helm, if appointed. So what if there is a risk, football is all about taking a risk or a gamble. Might just be the start of a great new era for the baggies and after Pulis and Pardew what better way to show the type of club we are and appoint one of our own, giving a young coach a chance. We were always a family club, brave in making decisions against the everyday formula, with a bit of flair for something different..........weren't we??

His substitutions and in game management has been excellent as well. He's really shown a knack for tactical awareness. I really think we are witnessing the birth of an excellent man manager with excellent tactical awareness. It is a bigger risk to let him go than it is to give him the job.

Couldn't agree more, not a reason to take him solely but imagine he might get a few offers at the end of the season. Wouldn't want to face him in the championship. I find myself checking myself that I'm not getting too carried away with him as our manager but I think he will be a success. My only question mark is in the transfer market, with his lack of experience but I'm sure he will have others to help. To be honest after recent efforts he might be a breathe of fresh air there to.

It will be the Stoke fixture which does us over. They will down tools and be on the beach because they have nothing to play for. We have to remain calm no matter how hard it is.

I’m not sure there is the element of players contracts, putting yourself in the shop window. Here’s hoping anyway.

Surely the emphasis must be changing to finding DM the best assistant available, someone who can guide him with experience and nurture this talent we have unearthed.

On another note I just peed off by the whole thing. Peed of for the staff who are going to lose their jobs for whatever reason. The team have shown they can do it. The fans and support staff have been let down massively.

Seen on another site that when Terraneo was at Fenerbache, Vitor Pereira was the manager.
Terraneo has been employed to help source a new manager, Pereira is now managing in China.
This guy was also lined with the dog heads before Nuno.

I just feel his appointment is targeted, six month contract to get the manager the club want and help him settle. Your post probably hit the nail on the head.

Goodluck big Dave. Can’t go wrong really, if he gets some results then that will do him and us no harm, if we lose last few games then that’s just fault of Pardew and Pulis. Might take some pressure of him and allow him to try some of the youngsters out.

Gave up and happy to do so, doesn’t mean I don’t support the club. I’m pretty excited now to see some changes with the manager and players for next season. A couple of years in the wilderness may do us the world of good, exciting brave new world we’re going into.

As for walking out or staying in the ground. In 41 years I’ve done both when it comes to relegation battles. I’ve also had tears in my eyes doing either. Love the club always will.

Don't disagree with anything you've said but the point remains he's going nowhere and this time his standing in the game means the fans are unable to force the issue so instead of p*ssing and moaning we might as well put up a united front.

I thought the majority of us were united on what we want.

Might aswell close this forum then, ones persons p***ing and moaning is another’s persons good point and opinion.
