West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Hal Robson-Kanu

From stuff I've been reading here I was under the opinion it was an option in his contract he has chosen to activate and who can blame him given it's probably good money for 12 more months

If you want to look for a silver lining in this I guess it's only happening 'because we are playing entertaining and good to watch football and are TOP OF THE LEAGUE!
But I am well on the side of those who think fkskytv

West Bromwich Albion FC / Baggie co-incidences around the world
« on: October 16, 2019, 12:09:39 PM »
I'm currently working in China and bumped into a guy I know reasonably well, a rabid Manchester United supporter, who couldn't wait to tell me his six year old was going to be coached at an Albion satellite set up in Gloucester. On holiday in Lanzarote last summer first step out of my hotel day we arrived I'm almost run down by a young lad on a scooter and in an Albion shirt, turns out he was working the summer in a local tattoo parlour
So come on lets pass the last few days of the international break with all the strange places you've been 'Baggied'

PS Back in plenty of time for the next home game and Stoke away!

we may have to revert to a more pragmatic approach in order to maintain our premier income
Nothing to do with this thread really but that passage succinctly encapsulates the problem and dilemma facing clubs moving up into the Prem.
Damned if you do, damned if you don't

I thought he was really good yesterday and started to think last night who would replace him if injured or suspended. I’m not sure what the obvious player would be without Sam Field in the squad.

I don’t think it could be Brunt, Harper is out the team by a distance. Maybe Barry if he has any games left in him?
Suspension is the most likely scenario if he keeps taking one for the team and the corresponding yellow card

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: System tactics personnel
« on: October 06, 2019, 10:49:51 AM »
It was noticeable yesterday that on a few occasions that Barkley and less often Ajai would forge forward into the gaps Cardiff left as they assumed/expected them to pass the ball to one of the middle three when moving the ball out of our final third.
Often took them by complete surprise and led to some of our attacks developing so quickly
I'm also beginning to see (and so understand) from the back of the Smethwick how we move the ball, and so the opposition, from one side of the pitch to the other to create similar gaps to exploit.
Loving it very much at the minute, a joy to watch

Once he started to dish out the yellows to us it was like he felt obliged to do so for every foul no matter if deserving or not of a card

The meeting was on the 12th September but I have no idea why the minutes have not been published yet :o
Soon be the 12th of October so probably saving them for the one month anniversary

Cardiff sold out already as Atomic indicates, interestingly they think our prices are 'cheap as chips'

http://www.ccmb.co.uk/showthread.php?440924-WBA-TICKETS-SOLD-OUT

Also they seem to think away tickets are less available this season than last in the prem.

Bigger allocations in the prem? Or more interest in games where they might start with a chance of making a game of it?

Many thanks from me too

That's two 'proper' Albion stories on there, written well and not filled with click bait kudos to the Athletic and its journalists

The year we won the title there I seem to remember a pub outside the ground being swamped by Baggies in fancy dress
Seem to remember it as being something like The Harlequin
Westfield is a soulless place to be for a pre-match drink

12.30 on a Sunday is a horrid time for them to put the Albion on TV, I will be missing it to play football myself  :'(
Pretty sure it's a 12.00 kick off mate

I think there was a meeting scheduled for either late last week or early this week.

If so I'd imagine the minutes haven't been sorted redacted yet.
Put that right for you Dan

Its coming.  Lose this weekend against Palace (we know Roy likes a result against them  ;D) and they'll be sharpening their knives for Watford at home.

Its not surprising.  Best manager they've had in donkeys and they are going to hound him out at the first attempt.  They probably want Mourinho.

Without doubt the most fickle fans in the world.

Blocks A,K and J haven’t been put up for sale have they ?
Can I refer you to our ticket guru Mr Atomic's message above about the number of tickets left in block A which would seem to indicate they are on sale  ;)
No mention of J or K though'
