West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Baggie co-incidences around the world

Lying on a beach in Portugal with albion beach bag  ::)

Lovely older scottish lady asked if i was an albion fan because her brother played for us.

None other than bobby hope. Wow

Wait for the punchline my surname is incredibly..... Hope!!

Couldnt make it up

its amazing how many people say pulis was the catalyst for them stopping going to watch

I was season ticket holder for 9 years and gave him a month before I stopped

i sometimes think about going again but have lost the habit

such a shame and i really hate that dinosaur for what he did to the club

West Bromwich Albion FC / No yellow green shirts left

I have just been told by the shop that the only size shirts left of this iconic kit are 5XL !

I have unbelievably also been told that there will be no more available ever !!

What a daft decision.  I can understand that they have been overtaken by demand, but who decides the keep their fans waiting for years and years for something, sell out 2 weeks before Christmas with no possibility of rushing any in just in case and then deny all the poor sods that are disappointed any hope of getting one in the future.

Trying to call somebody in commercial at the club and still waiting after 10 minutes despite being first in the q

Good luck to the fat bastards out there, get down to the shop before they disappear too

"Back in the day"
You could bump into a lot of our players in a few of the local pubs like the Jinglers,four in hand & the Spiney.
The steering Wheel night club was another. I had many a happy hour drinking & playing card with Jeff Astle in The Jinglers

my missus managed the jinglers for a couple of years in about 2012 nobody ever told us about west brom players being there.  shame i would have loved to chat about that.  we went back last year, not impressed sadly

this is taken from bbc article on  Kante

we have the top 2 furthest runners !

Making up the ground - most distance covered since August 2015 (Premier League)

Craig Dawson - 730.4km
Darren Fletcher - 723.1km
Christian Eriksen - 718.4km
Gylfi Sigurdsson - 705.1km
N'Golo Kante - 701.8km

so after a year of Pulis what has happened in summary

well we just had to get him to avoid relegation and keep us in the prem didn't we ?

his football and methods was/is preached to be the only way

so far what we have achieved is as follows

3 points off relegation place

i have given up my season ticket

away attendance figures lower

i can't even watch us on the internet on a saturday anymore

become everybodies pub team when we used to be admired for our football

Fans in fighting with each other about Pulisball

Thank you Tone happy anniversary

Last March, can't even remember the game.  Knowing that I wasn't coming back that season and would not be renewing my season ticket.

I just gave up caring because of Pulisball.

It's hard to get the feeling back

best decision i made giving up my season ticket this year

utter dross

I notice that the poll in this thread says that nearly 70% of fans support Pulis.

Was this poll originally carried out several weeks ago and therefore still retains those votes.

It would be interesting to carry out a new clean poll to see if opinions have changed.

I see more and more people refusing to go to away and home matches. 

My opinion of him hasn't changed since last March.  He is and will always be a dinosaur and will suck the life out of the club I love.  Gave up my season ticket this year and stopped going after March.


So....any chance of another poll as I can't believe that 70% of punters still would rather have him

Fortunately, I believe the critics of Pulis are a vocal minority, as Gloster says, the more thoughtful fans will recognise this is a period of change and recognise this is something which is transient and will hopefully improve.

Who gives you the right to proclaim your sophistication

You can hope all you like I guess 6 years was a transient period

The more "thoughtful" ones realise what happened at Stoke and are scared of it happening to their club

tick tick tick

time is running out Tone

problem is when this dinosaur (Pulis) eventually pi55es off it will take years and/or a whole load of cash (see Stoke) to sort it out

he may well take us down the season after he leaves because the new coach will try at least to play some football but he will not have the players

Glad I gave up my season ticket.

Anybody that expects anything different under this dinosaur is deluded

How long before this becomes unacceptable

Are we that desperate ???

This made me laugh to be fair. The way I'm getting through it is by not attending. Crap fan and all that, but sticking by my principles. The Stoke game will be my last for the foreseeable future.

i gave up last march 

another crap fan

but another season ticket not bought

first time 9 years

Yep, I honestly feel its going to get better though. Guess its just a case of glass half full / half empty situation.

If we are still playing like Stoke in a years time than fair enough. I might even start to get a bit frustrated with it.

Apart from blind optimism and a few months at Palace, what possible reason could there be for Pulis to change.

7 years at Stoke over 120 million quid spent on a team that the fans refused to watch anymore.

Why do you think some of the most dedicated fans in the country (whatever we think of them) turned there back on him in the end

Because it was grim, dull, boring and in the end if you want to play that way and just be average 10th, 11th, 12th it stops being interesting.

Then you stop going

6 years at Stoke was long enough

He spent a fortune and we all used to take the p*** when they came here and say "how can you watch that every week ?"

Remember that ?

That's our future.

Will get my season ticket back when he goes

If going down is the sacrifice that has to be paid to get rid of Pulis then I am prepared to take it.
Because I can't stand 2 and a half years of this sh*te and it will get even worse when he brings in his own players.

agree with this.  stopped going because cant watch this "football"

Possibly the worst match in terms of quality ever seen on Sky from the premiership.

We are only going to score from set pieces and then we push and barge our way into the net.

Absolutely ****ed off with Pulis.

I said when he came that I would give him a month to see what kind off football, but its really **** isn't it.

Not wasting any more money and time until that gobsh$te shouting and screaming on the line either changes his ways or ****es off.

When Stoke came to town I always said that I would rather go down than watch that lot every week.  Its true but now we have turned into a Stoke copy and I hate it.

The beautiful game ?!?!??
