Neil Lennon is sitting in the lower East Stand tonight

I like it - Puma have come up trumps again - it will be nice to see the green and yellow with the same design

Brilliant post - my first match was back in 1969 and my dad paid 10 bob (50p to you young ones) to get into the Hawthorns, that is equivalent to £ 7.50 today

And his MBE is well merited (if you like that sort of establishment recognition).
Congratulations to Gmac - he still could have done a job for us - a great pro Gareth MBE  :)

Still no news than I thought the announcement was going to be on Monday ?

We shall miss him sorely.
He was the "blocker" at the back.
He didn't have to run much, because he could read the game.
100% agree - he will be missed

Why has Burke only been given 33 minutes ?

One thing I have learned in my professional life, thank you dad, is never burn your bridges.

If you decide that the current job is not right for you, whether it be money or satisfaction, then fine move on, but do not upset your ex-employers, ex-colleagues,  ex-friends, as you never know when you might meet them or need them in the future, but most importantly be professional about it.

Ben - I am disappointed with his attitude, suddenly from a settled club, with a settled family, from being loved by the fans, to not going on the pre-season training and burning his bridges with everyone associated with West Bromwich Albion

Craig - I understand his head may have turned with all of the rumours about transfers, but his value will drop because of his dissent towards the training trip. Who is going to want him now ? Craig, please do not burn your own bridges, you have a bright future

I know that these two are very different to us being multi millionaires but the story is the same - do not burn your bridges

Soft rant over ...

"despite the fact that it is against the law" - why is it against the law to take dividends from a profitable company ?

I agree with you. I don't have any sympathy with the Vile's plight, but I wouldn't want to see any club go under, it's a slippery slope for all football clubs.
I agree - us as football fans do not want to see any of the 92 (plus the conference clubs) go out of business. It is a sad state of affairs and just shows how greedy the premiership has become. It is the top 6 against the bottom 86

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Would anyone take Berahino back?
« on: May 31, 2018, 01:43:11 AM »
Absolutely NOT

Hasn’t scored in 2 years...I see nothing to think that may change anytime soon

He will be in League 1 in 18 months time
Yes, hopefully with Stoke  :D

I wasn't there for the FA Cup but was there for the Man City league cup final  :'(

Is Big Sam definitely leaving Everton at the end of the season ? I just hope really hope that he is not on the list from the board

General Football & Sports / Re: Selling Wembley
« on: May 01, 2018, 03:29:07 AM »
Sell it. Build a new one where it should have been in the first place, the Midlands.
100% agree the new Wembley should never have been rebuilt were the old one was. It was a good chance to move the national arena to the Midlands

Has anyone tried to sit down in the away end at Old Trafford, that cannot be safe when you are 6 foot 2 and your knees are gone  :o

Always good to see an away fan come to the shrine and give his comments in peace

Excellent news if true - but I agree goalkeepers should not be captains - how can they dictate what is going on 100 yards down the park ?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Player of the season awards
« on: April 02, 2018, 05:19:33 AM »
Well based on the short DVDs and the pickle that we are in - who is going to get the player of year awards ?

For me probably Rondon

Why Jeremy is partly to blame for this.
I am not blaming him for selling and making his millions - he is a businessman at the end of the day
All I was saying was that when he was the top man the club was run in a far better state than today

The future does not look good

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: We ain't got no money!

What have we become as a club - this is very sad
Bring back Jeremy

Surely he should be sacked by sky after the spitting incident
Andy Gray got fired for comments about women linesman but not spitting at them
