West Bromwich Albion FC / Albion fans care
« on: January 27, 2021, 12:11:34 AM »
 ??? I don't often have a "negative" expression on this site but today I am having a right go at the whole situation we are in.

1. I have supported Albion since 10 October 1964 and have never been this down with the situation  we are in.

2. A complete "inept" showing by the team, over the season. No player got a better score than a 2 today from me.

3. I realise we are a Championship team playing in the Greed league, but these blokes are not giving a toss.

4. Can someone please write a letter to Slaven and ask him to come "home" and be our coach in the Championship next year.

5. SA please walk. Lai please sell you are killing our beloved club...we will be playing Walsall, Stockport and Blackpool (again) very soon at this rate.

6. I cannot even speak about the lack of money given to spend on "new" players it is a complete farce.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Mondelez sponsorship
« on: November 17, 2020, 02:09:44 AM »
 ;D This is a massive deal for us from a company that is worth $85 Billion. Own Oreo, Kraft, Cadbury, Frys ,Ritz and many more snackfood companies.

I am really hoping there is something in the air on this. They could write a cheque for the whole club with a snap of the fingers.

Great news looking forward to ,maybe, new developments???. :o :o :o

West Bromwich Albion FC / Happiest memory as a Baggies fan
« on: December 04, 2018, 06:09:44 AM »
 ;D Someone had to start this post...as the "worst baggies memory"is already posted.

So will set the ball rolling with my first ever Albion Match October 10th 1964,at the Hawthorns,The Kings home debut.

Albion 5  Wolves 1 (The King 2 goals)....say no more. :D A very happy 10 year old.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Give the Kids a Game
« on: March 04, 2018, 11:47:34 PM »
 ;D No point playing the "normal" team...enough has been said about them. We are down and now is the time for re-building for the Championship. My suggestions would be

1. Drop the Taxigate 4.

2. Put in Field,Leko and anyone who can "run" and pass.

3. Keep these players, who at least put in a "shift", Fozz Daws,Hegazi,Yacob,Rondon,Brunt,Nyom.  The rest will be leaving for sure anyway so whats the point in playing them.

4.If we know who is staying we need to play them every week,so that we can get the next season going from the "off".

5. Might as well leave AP there to the "merciless" end and search for an up and coming manager (preferably from overseas).

6. Get a new "scouting" team...and throw Hammond out.

I am happy to listen to anymore ideas on our situation as fellow fans who care for their Club and its future.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Bottom 3
« on: December 13, 2017, 05:00:59 AM »
 ??? Well we are in the bottom 3 for the first time in 2 years.Hopefully we will be looking upwards in the next few months.
Huddersfield,Brighton,Newcastle and the Clayheads look to be around us also as they have no form.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Who was our best Manager ?
« on: November 01, 2017, 04:33:04 AM »
 ;D I will set the ball rolling so I am giving Alan Ashman the nod....the last time we won a trophy 1968 FA Cup he was in charge.

Originally a "chicken farmer" from Cumbria. He was softly spoken and got us playing out of our skins in the late 1960s. Had respect from the players such as Hope, Astle,Clark, Kaye and Bomber.

PS He wouldn't let go of the FA Cup in the aftermath celebrations. Top man ;D ;D

West Bromwich Albion FC / Set-up at the back
« on: February 19, 2017, 11:27:12 PM »
A lot of teams are playing with 3 backs and 3 defensive midfielders.I think we could adopt this system well...but think TP likes a back four and two DM's.

I would have Nyom, Dawson and Evans line up with Yacob, Fletcher and Livermore as the 3 DM's,adding support to both midfield and the back 3.

Just a thought and open to suggestions from the site? ;D

So a formation similar to this             Fozz
                                            Nyom   Dawson   Evans
                                           Livermore Yacob Fletcher
                                            Chadli  Mozza   Phillips
                                                       Rondon

Albion Matchday Forum / Drinking???
« on: March 09, 2015, 12:48:17 AM »
 :'( Obviously the "blame for all this pitch invasion and throwing seats"is down to being able to drink from Opening time at the Pubs...till say 5pm.
That is a long drinking session and many people were observed to be "legless" as they entered the ground.

Blame must go onto the TV stations for letting it be a 5-30 K.O. If it was a Midday K.O all this wouldn't have happened.

Mindless supporters loaded up with "drink" in a "Cup derby" will only lead to trouble.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Nicknames of our players.
« on: September 30, 2014, 05:22:07 AM »
 ;D I know we have Fozz, Mozza and Dozza.....what are some of the other "nicknames'' of the current players???

Even some old players eg Bomber(Brown), Chipper(Clark), Ozzie(Osborne), Yorky (Kaye)?? ;)

West Bromwich Albion FC / Early Goals Conceded
« on: September 19, 2014, 12:24:46 AM »
 ;D It ain't "Rocket science" that we are conceding goals early in the game.

 1. We have been playing with one or no defensive midfielders,in front of of our "vulnerable"defence. We miss Yacob to break up play (he should play every week)

 2. The first 10 mins of any game should be to focus on a defensive formation with mid-field working extremely hard.

 3.  Players,mentally,are not ready to play,so lapses in concentration early on...players need to be fired up 10 mins before they go out on the pitch.

 4.  Why am I writing this? Irvine should have all this covered with his tactics and his motivational speeches...or is it all at the "training ground"??

West Bromwich Albion FC / Starting XI & Formation 14/15
« on: July 08, 2014, 08:16:42 AM »
 ;D Would be interested to see how us supporters see this going this season?

I feel we will play 3 at the back, with 2 wing-backs, 4 in the middle and 1 up front??
So something like this!!

                                                             Fozz

                                   G/Mac / Dawson  Olsson     Lescott

                        Baird/Hutton                                             Olsson?? (Norwich)

                         Sess         Gardner/Dorrans     Mulumbu     Berahino

                                                 Anichebe/ New striker???

General Football & Sports / Tim Sherwood
« on: June 15, 2014, 11:50:54 PM »
 :) Tim on behalf of West Bromwich Albion fans (99%) I would like to apologise for your non-appointment.
As you can see we are a club of "passionate" supporters....lead by a Chairman with NO AMBITION,GREEDY,NON-INTEREST IN THE CLUB,CHEAP OPTION EXPERT.

I was looking forward to a "fresh" change and excitement in the coming season. You would have attracted some good players and your "passion" would have pulled the team together for a healthy mid-table finish.

All we have to look forward to now is another dismal season with relegation inevitable. :'(

West Bromwich Albion FC / Dear Mr Peace and Mr Mel
« on: January 30, 2014, 04:39:25 AM »
Dear Mr Peace and Mr Mel,

I am a 4th generation Albion fan and 59 years of age. I started supporting Albion in 1964 and have gone through all the dramas associated with being a supporter of this great club.
I have all the confidence in your decisions and implementations of running our great club.
I guess you can call me an "armchair" supporter as I now watch most of the games on "pay"TV in Australia.
I have been a coach of many teams (at junior and youth level) and have a reasonable knowledge of the game.
I now have to ask why? oh why? are we perservering with Stephen Reid and Lugano, who have been great players in the past but not up to standard of Premier League football.
We have much better players sitting on the bench. I can see this and so can thousands of other supporters. Why can't the club see this? I fear relegation as much as anyone and that's where we are going if we don't make these changes.
PS I have the utmost respect for these players and know they give 100%,but it is not enough for Prem level. Thank you for listening.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Points the rest of the season
« on: January 29, 2014, 05:15:59 AM »
 ::) Just had a quick skim over the fixtures we have till May and feel at the worst we will get 18 points. Giving us a grand total of 40 and I presume "safety".
At best I think we can turn a couple of draws into wins giving us 44 points.
If we get mid-40 points it would have been a good year. ;D

West Bromwich Albion FC / Predictor Graph
« on: December 10, 2013, 10:51:45 PM »
 :D Think it is time to have a look at the predictor graph.
Whoever is in charge please post.
Noticed another site giving us only 3 points up to Xmas....not too promising???

West Bromwich Albion FC / Are we too nice?
« on: December 05, 2013, 03:11:14 AM »
 :o After watching us play against Man City tonight I was thinking that maybe we don't play tough enough.
I remember Wimbledon Vinnie Jones taking no prisoners and they got results by not letting the opposition play.
I think you have to show a mixture of skill and toughness without being a dirty team
Man City have world class players so if you don't let them express these talents they are beatable,
I sometimes wish we could be more aggressive but fair?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Dick Sheppard (football anecdotes)
« on: May 07, 2013, 05:02:00 AM »
 :D When I was a lad one of my first games at the Albion,was the day Dick Sheppard made his debut as an 18 or 20 year old in goal for Albion against Sunderland.(1965)
I have got a copy of Dicks'testimonial programme from 1979 where he writes about his debut.Quote

"I remember it was a very hot day and Sunderland had just regained their place in the First Division.I was confronted with a team of "name"players....it was so different to being in the Reserves.
The one incident that sticks in my mind came when Sunderland were awarded a penalty...and of course, going through my mind were all the story book heroics of my possibly crowning my debut by saving a penalty.
Their Scottish international Jim Baxter prepared to take the kick and as he placed the ball on the spot he looked me straight in the eye and in a broad Scots accent said "You stand bloody still!".
He frightened me rigid and had no difficulty scoring,but as we were already 4 goals ahead it did not really matter and we ran out 4-1 winners."

Dick Sheppard died a few years ago...but memories like this make interesting reading.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Scott Allan
« on: April 30, 2013, 11:49:11 PM »
 :o Anybody have any feedback on his progress?
Read a news article that he was virtually thrown out from Dundee Utd,when he wanted to come to Albion.
Is he a chance to break into the team soon....he came here with a big wrap on his qualities as an attacking midfielder ?

24
West Bromwich Albion FC / Player of the Year
« on: February 14, 2013, 11:24:47 PM »
 ;D I know it is a bit early,with a 1/3 of the season to go but any thoughts on any particular player who has played consistantly and to his potential.

Obvious choices would be Foster or maybe Mulumbu?? But my vote goes to GMac....not had many bad games at all and is a rock.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Conceding Late Goals
« on: January 18, 2012, 11:20:07 PM »
 Has anyone worked out how many points we would have now if we hadn't conceded goals in the last 10 mins?

I did a rough estimate from the Chelsea,Man Utd,Stoke,Norwich,Spurs and Everton games of 7 points we could be better off if we had held on for a draw.
