West Bromwich Albion FC / WBA Player / Former Players Evenings
« on: January 30, 2020, 10:46:09 AM »
Thought it would be an idea to put all of the events in one place on here as there seems to be a few lately and unless you follow the right people on Twitter, etc they can be missed.

First one (that I know of)

Fundraiser for baby Alex (a lot of health problems) at Charlemont Bowling Club, Charlemont Road, West Bromwich. Friday 7th Feb 7.30pm-Midnight

Guests include Midlands Pro DJ, Lee Hughes, Geoff Horsfield, Andy Johnson, Richard Sneekes, Graham Williams, Joe Mayo, Micky Fudge (and possibly 2 others)

£20 a ticket including food, also a raffle and auction of loads of Albion memorabilia.

Contact Snarka or Debs for tickets (Twitter - @snarka or @baggiebird62)

Ive got us 9th with 54 points, bottom 3 Villa (bottom), QPR and Wigan. I put the results in genuinely based on current form and opponents obviously it wasnt just bias that Villa ended up bottom honest!!

West Bromwich Albion FC / Big rebuild coming?
« on: January 10, 2013, 02:31:29 PM »
This summer is going to be huge for us in terms of our progress, Dan Ashworth is leaving as we all know to be replaced with a guy who has no experience in this role, not saying thats a bad thing but we were definitely in safe hands with Ashworth.

Defence - We then have the futures of Olsson, Tamas, Jara, Reid, McAuley to look at as well as the prospect of losing Popov as he is only on loan. There is no real cover for Billy Jones who has been found out in a few games already as well as uncertainty of whether Dawson will get a chance and James Hurst has not even featured on the bench. I also think Myhill will leave this year too.

Midfield - Dorrans, Gera and Thomas are more than likely going to be gone, El Ghanassey will go back to his club, I doubt whether we will keep Scott Allan and Brunt may feel its time to move on too.

Forwards - As it stands Lukaku will be back at Chelsea, Fortune is coming to the end of his contract, Rosenberg will more than likely move on if he has no game time and Odemwingie will be involved in his usual will he wont he all through the summer.

That is upto 19 players with question marks over their futures all to be looked at by a guy brand new in his role and a coach in his first year, as well as recruiting for the future, it is a big summer for us in many ways and probably our most important one to date due to the expectation around the club now.

General Football & Sports / September Manager of the Month
« on: October 09, 2012, 01:39:11 PM »
David Moyes manager of the month? Clarke in his first job would have been a better shout, we beat Everton, we are level on points with Everton, we are 100% at home and Everton got knocked out the cup to a team a division below them?

General Football & Sports / Manuel Preciado
« on: June 07, 2012, 08:53:35 AM »
Dont know the guy but feel it relevant to post on a football forum, RIP Manuel, sounds like he had some awful luck when alive.

SSN - Manuel Preciado, who was appointed as the new Villarreal coach yesterday, has died of a heart attack at the age of 54.

In 2002, Preciado's wife died from cancer. Two years later, his 15-year old son (one of two the couple had) was killed in a car crash. He later claimed about the incidents: "I could have shot myself or I could have carried on".
On 20 April 2011, Preciado's father, also named Manuel, died after being run over in Santander.

« on: April 05, 2012, 04:16:09 PM »
Nearly the end of the season so who makes your 11 out of the midlands teams? Not the best season by any standard for the Midlands in general but overall Albion deserve to be top dogs hence the number of players in my team...and im biased!!

Mine is (3-4-3);


D.Murphy (Blues)

Frimpong (done more for Wolves in short space than most of their midfield all season!)
Burke (Blues)

Fletcher (Wolves)
Agbonlahor (Villa)

General Football & Sports / Billy Sharp
« on: November 02, 2011, 08:37:29 AM »
After Paul Scharner and Balotelli being booked for lifting their shirts after scoring I hope common sense prevailed last night for Billy Sharp. His son died a couple of days ago only 2 days old and before the match they had a minutes applause, he then went on to score a cracking goal and lifted his shirt to reveal a top saying 'Thats for you son' A very touching moment that I hope the referee did not book him for!

General Football & Sports / Scott Carson

Just wondered if anyone has followed how he is getting on at Bursaspor?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Official Site

Anyone else notice the new logo on the OS?

'WBA - ONLY THE STRONG', whats that about?

Nice to see a pic of Bomber on there too though!!

General Football & Sports / Steve McClaren
« on: June 09, 2011, 11:26:41 AM »
Apparantly (if you believe everything you read) Steve McClaren is getting no joy with a job in England due to his reputation, but is he really that bad? He won trophies at Boro and the league at Twente and only had 20 odd games at Wolfsburg. I think he is being judged harshly at club level due to his failure as international manager but at club level he is pretty damn good and by doing his coaching under SAF, then managing at international level and club level in europe he has very good experience! I think Villa will realise this if/ when they go for Martinez and somebody eventually takes a chance on McClaren (maybe Wigan)

As per the subject really, was just wondering if you have an app or have plans for one?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Nightmare scenario
« on: May 12, 2011, 05:04:37 PM »
If Wolves win their next 2 and we lose ours with a 5 goal swing in goal difference they finish above us!  :o :-[

General Football & Sports / Mourinho banned for 5 CL games
« on: May 06, 2011, 03:07:30 PM »

General Football & Sports / One of those questions!
« on: April 07, 2011, 12:20:31 PM »

Obi Mikel ?
Paul Parker
