West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Promotion?
« on: July 11, 2020, 07:25:28 PM »



To say pants today is crazy. We put any of those chances away to go two nil and it’s done. Yes we totally lost our way after the subs and when they scored, but pants, come on
The finishing was pants mate, as it was against Blues.
Don’t get me wrong I like us as a side, I just think, at present, Brentford look unstoppable and we don’t.
I’m hurt today and that will show in my posts but I won’t apologise for that.
We are basically in a 3 game shoot out and I’m scared we will blow it.

Which would explain why Brentford are top by some margin and we are way behind?
On current form that is correct though.

I watched most of Brentford today and whilst they win well, at 1 1 they were struggling a little and the derby keeper helped them out. Today it didn’t run for us, but how we can assume they can win all three games left is beyond me. Anything can happen in football and today showed that
We have already faltered against Blues and Brentford themselves though, therefore we look fallible, they don’t., even if they don’t play as well, they still hav the confidence to win and nothing suggests that’s about to change considering the teams they have left to play.
Yes it’s in our own hands but those hands are more Joe Hart than Gordon Banks at present. Brilliant one day,, pants the next.

Nothing to suggest Brentford will fold, they are not scraping results, they look excellent in every game, they have a good keeper, solid defence, compact midfield and the best forward line in the league.
They also have a very astute manager and look supremely confident.
We, on the other hand, look nervous (Bilic included) and can be abject and superb in equal measure. We’ve lacked consistency all season, never quite being able to kick on at crucial times imes and falling back into the pack. This latest stumble will be one too many for me and we will be pipped at the post.
How we then approach the play offs I have no idea.

We’ve bottled it big time ,  been poor since restart but rallied against Derby only to fall at the next hurdle.
Subs for subs sake today, killed the game.
Don’t expect any better against Fulham as Bilic will struggle to pick a side after that.
Our season will be defined by us praying for Brentford to fail and even then, we’ll have to beat the truly awful Huddersfield and QPR.

Awful finishing and awful subs cost us this game and possibly promotion

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Dara O'Shea
« on: July 09, 2020, 02:26:13 PM »
That is the one area I think he could improve. The more dangerous crosses are those delivered from near the by-line after going around the outside of his opposite number.
Furlong does that better.  Alot of O'Sheas crosses are long ones delivered from nearer the half way line, which are the less dangerous hit and hope type.
That's because he's a CH by trade, crossing never been on his agenda. Big stage of his career now, does he fully commit to being a RB and, therefore, target this part of his game, or does he focus on being a CH. Would hope Bilic is pointing him in the direction he thinks is best.

Personally, I think he has the makings of an international RB (he's already better than Dawson)

Simply fantastic, never have them a sniff. Boys that came in proved our strength in depth. Ajayi and Bartley superb, O'Shea better than Ferguson, Townsend better than Gibbs, Sawyers, Livermore compact and solid, Pereira sublime, Austin pure class and anyone that says he's unfit is deluded, he never stopped chasing. Diangana different level for this league. Just leaves Grosicki, MotM by a mile, why have we waited so long.
So, so happy today.

Controversial maybe, but I would have Rooney of we went up.

I think that is spot on, if you watch the footage he is shaking his head and saying he is off before the physio has got to him. I accept "you know your own body" but KG does seem SO susceptible to niggles you have to wonder if other more driven players would run them off.
Remember Sick Vic? He was almost psychic  ::) Could sense an injury coming before a tackle was even made! Sturridge the same.

It is interesting that everybody is still in panic mode, on a day when we go top of the table with 4 games left.
It's not panic, it's the Eternal Pessimism of the Baggie Mind.

Ideally, I think the Premier League would like to see Leeds, Brentford & Forest promoted.

Leeds, a former giant

Forest, a former European Cup winner

Brentford, the cinderella Club.

All makes good TV viewing next season.
Bang on, especially regarding the first two, and it's in the referee's mind every time he covers their games.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: How are we feeling? Will we do it?
« on: July 07, 2020, 04:22:48 PM »
I have very strange feelings....I've (naturally) always wanted us to win everything, but I absolutely detest the premier league and how its pretty much destroyed the ambitions of all clubs bar the filthy rich (thank you Sky/Murdock). Do we go up and get spanked every week in soul destroying atmospheres? Or do we enjoy a winning mentality and a decent atmosphere in the championship? For me...its the entertainment and atmosphere that make the whole albion/football thing worthwhile.

I just don't know.... ??? Anyone else think the same as me?
I'm the same, detest it, but we have to go up to stay competitive. 10 years in the Championship we will be a very different club.
Who knows, Coronavirus could be a leveller, might be a good time to go up.

Good to see him come out (makes a change  ;) ) with a bit of fighting talk, exactly what he needs, to show the fans he has a bit of mettle. Gives me just a tad more confidence in him.

Unfortunate choice of picture to go with the story though!!!  :-[

>:( I am an ex keeper ...and the amount of abuse,torment and anger given to SJ is wrong.

Every keeper makes mistakes but is obviously magnified because it often causes his team to concede a goal. He is not perfect but slating him is not going to do his confidence any good at all...and we need his confidence up at the moment in the run in.

Has anyone commented on the "wordly save" he made against Hull or the clean sheets.
Come on guys he needs our support now not criticism. I think people compare him to Foster and expect the same from him...give him a chance and he may get there.
The old cliche "IT TAKES TEAMS TO GET AROUND 10 MEN BEFORE THEY GET TO THE KEEPER" so maybe they can help also.
There is a big difference between criticism and abuse though. Granted Johnstone gets some stick but I wouldn't call it abuse or torment.
What he does get is criticised for his faults, of which there are just too many, crosses, shots from distance, positioning, footwork, commanding his area, communication. Most of his critics do, however, also recognise his strengths, shot stopping, distribution. Thing is his deficiencies outweigh the positives, and have done for the best part of 2 seasons, with no improvement, so I think he's out of chances.

I'll support him for the rest of this season, though I doubt he'll hear me through the telly, as for next we need better.

Looks like we are running to stand still at the moment and can't afford a slip up. If we can beat Blackburn, Huddersfield and QPR and no worse than a draw against Derby and Fulham then we are up, regardless of what Brentford do.

For what it's worth, I think Stoke will be the team to derail Brentford.

He must be absolutely superb in training. Because like you I can't remember ever having a worse keeper in my time watching the club. Crichton perhaps.
40 years and counting, he is the worst on corners I have ever seen. And I watched Tony Godden. (Legend)

Come on lads, I'm not the most positive I match day but, we will pummel these! Just don't give away corners of freekicks, and expose our weak link, and we can make any while the sun shines.
Helsinki to score
Just read this ***** and realized how drunk I  am!
Helsinki should read Grosicki  :D

Jump straight in Jacko! He has already done more in this game than Gibbs.
Agreed, great pick for Austin, who shanked it.
Townsend better than Gibbs and Gibbs knows it.
