This constant bashing of Johnstone isn't even funny. He didn't put a foot wrong tonight really yet he still gets rated poor.

Same with Livermore, he's had a good start to the season yet constant criticism.

Our strongest available team with the possible exception of Ferguson and Furlong as we've not seen enough of either to decide.

Cant we just close this topic and include him in the ex player thread if need be, would be nice if he was just a distant memory

No it won't be closed, the ex players thread is purely for news of where ex players have moved to, it is not for constant updates on who scores where, that has been made clear numerous times.

If you or others are not interested in a topic then you have the choice to ignore it.

Having now read Bilic's comment about squad size and fairness to players, we may well see a few changes tonight. If Brunt plays as well as he did against Millwall in the cup then I have no problem with him in for either Sawyers or Livermore. I'd expect Diangana to replace Edwards and possibly Pereira for Phillips.

Changing the central midfield pair no reason is asking for problems. Sawyers is running games and Livermore is playing his best football for us. Why swap either of them for a player who is not suited to a central role? major disruption for no reason.

I can see the 2 wide players and Austin being the changes with possibly Furlong for Ferguson but not sure that one will happen.

That purple kit is Vile (in every sense).

I don't mind the green and yellow but very rarely do we see the need for a second kit, let alone a third. It's just marketing to drain every last penny out of supporters IMHO.

For my money the best alternative kits have been the white top and blue shorts of 68 and the black kit we had for 2006/7 season. I'd love to see the return of either.

Finally, for those of you shocked that neutrals don't know it's navy blue stripes I am constantly being told (as I don't live in the Midlands) how 'us Magpies' aren't doing so well lately. Yes, lots of people out there are very ignorant indeed.

Wasn't it the FA Cup semi final against Portsmouth where the programme had us down as wearing black shirts ?

I can picture you eyes a bulging with indignant fury as the Albion step out in lilac at away day of random choice. This mental image is quite hilarious and involves blood shot eyes, a deep purple face with puffed out cheeks and steaming ears. Mike, take a breath before you spontaneously combust mate ;D .

at least we've got a shirt that will match  :D

There is no rule that says we have to wear our away kit a certain number of times, there is no rule that says as we are "away" we wear our "away" kit, thats all made up nonsense folks.

As long as our home kit doesn't clash we can wear it as many times away from home as we wish.

So basically its just a commercial decision to make suree away kits gets seen and people buy it,

https://www.efl.com/-more/governance/efl-rules--regulations/section-5--fixtures/

38 Registration of Playing Kits

38.1 During the Close Season, each Club shall notify The League, in writing, details of its ‘home’ and ‘away’ kit (shirts, shorts and socks) and if applicable any “third” set of kit. The League shall inform all other Clubs, Referees and Assistant Referees of such details. The ‘home’ kit so registered by each Club shall be worn for all Home Matches during the next following Season. No changes either in the kit or combination of colours of kit shall be permitted during the course of the Season.

38.2 Notwithstanding the aforementioned, each Club is authorised on one occasion per Season to play a Home match in an alternative kit. The League reserves the right to relax this restriction in respect of play-off matches after consultation with Clubs.

38.3 When away from home a Club shall play in a registered kit which is clearly distinguishable (shirts, shorts and socks) from those of their opponents. The League reserves the right to relax this requirement in respect of shorts where appropriate and after consultation with match officials.

Guidance

The order of precedence when determining kit colours for any fixture is as follows:

Home club outfield
Away club outfield
Home goalkeeper
Away goalkeeper
Match officials
Clubs are required to resolve any potential clash in advance of match day. Match Officials should ensure they find the playing kits of both teams acceptable. The Football Services Department in liaison with PGMOL will adjudicate if necessary and reserves the right to relax the requirement in respect of shorts where appropriate and after consultation with match officials.

A breach of this Regulation is designated a strict liability offence as detailed in Regulation 87.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Sam Field (on loan at Charlton)
« on: August 18, 2019, 11:19:34 AM »
Not in the match day squad again yesterday and Charlton have since signed Kayal and Oztumer. He has to go somewhere to play but this does suggest that he might not be at our level currently or anytime in the near future.

Theres been more talk about this is in the On Loan Thread than in here for some reason. He's not being selected due to a lack of fitness and game time over pre-season. He was away with the England U21 for part of it and along with Kayal at Charlton who arrived about the same time has been building fitness.

This is what Lee Bowyer said before Charltons cup game in midweek

“I spoke to the fitness fella at West Brom and he was saying Sam hadn’t played many minutes in pre-season. So he’s a little bit behind. I don’t want to just chuck him in the deep end because you are always getting judged. I want to try and get him some minutes. He’s a quiet lad, so I need to break him in really with the group.

Think Phillips and Diangana are now the preferred 2 until one has an off day. I expect Pereira to be a big player when he gets up to speed. Game time for Edwards and Willock (a strange signing) will be very limited.


Pleasing step in the right direction today with Burke and Kanu omitted from the 18.

Kanu injured at the mo. Had a back injury before the game against Millwall midweek , still not recovered.

lack of fitness due to not having a preseason, they have another player in a similar position, at least that’s what Bowyer said a week or so ago.

Kayal I think it was

Did Atherton actually break the rules ? I honestly can't remember it. According to the wise old wiki it states

His reputation suffered a blow when he was implicated in a ball-tampering controversy during the first Test against South Africa at Lord's, for which he was fined £2,000 by Ray Illingworth. Atherton was accused of lying to Peter Burge, the match referee.[citation needed] Atherton claims in his autobiography that he answered 'no' when asked if he had anything in his pockets. He believed that Burge was referring to nefarious substances such as resin or lip salve. Nonetheless the TV pictures were damning, showing Atherton deliberately putting dirt, taken from the pitch, on the ball. Strictly speaking, Atherton was not breaking the laws – he pointed out that plenty of bowlers improve their grip on the ball by rubbing their hands on the pitch

If its cheating then he deserves exactly the same as Smith, Warner and Bancroft, permanent ban, a cheat is a cheat.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Chris Brunt
« on: August 15, 2019, 10:55:44 PM »
So by your theory we haven’t had a legend since Astle? I think not

Tony Brown ??

I'm in the category of not sure if Brunt is a legend as for me personally i'm harsh on who is or isn't a legend. Someone has to make a major impact for me to be classed alongside Astle, Brown, Billy Bassett etc but thats for another thread   NOT THIS ONE !! HINT HINT  ;)

With Brunt I have been critical but I have also been consistent with that criticism. My criticism stems from him in the centre of the pitch, always has been always will be, its a position that doesn't suit him and doesn't suit us, I have also been told its a role he doesn't enjoy but whether theres any truth in that no idea.

Out wide not a problem, at left back not a problem and despite that criticism i've always found him a model professional and an absolute gent to meet, someone who has always done his best and never shied away from anything so I do have admiration and a lot of respect for him.

There were comments on Twitter just after saying the ball had gone out of play, Matt Wilson in the E&S says it was down to Ajayi creating space for the goal illegally but i've just watched it 5 times and I still can't see anything wrong so will go down as one of lifes great mysterys  ???

Didn't the ball go out of play from the corner?
