The forgotten man surely this means that Bartley or Hegazi are on their way out  especially if Ivanovic arrives?

Good business I would say and an improvement to the squad presumably using the Leko money?

What a bargain fantastic news. I think i'd have tied him down for five years rather than four if we could but at least we can build the team round him.

Sad to hear another great header of the ball die with dementia.
I have one memory of Talbut I think it was against Burnley in around 1970. He was on  the touchline and the ball was passed to him but was sailing over his head. He leapt like Ozzie in goal and duly caught the ball above his head but forgot he was still in play and was penalised and booked for his trouble!

Mine arrived hours late but didn't work when they did arrive so i too gave up.
On now, 7 confirmation reply e mails rolled up in my junk folder together.

So has anyone registered onto the new site yet?
Have tried to register several times but you need a confirmation e mail to respond to and it never arrives. So gave up.

Listened to every episode through out. Great listen and really rate Adrian Goldberg.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Bilic - back him or sack him?
« on: July 23, 2020, 05:06:20 PM »
I cannot think of anyone who would come to Albion who is more likely to keep us up than Billic.
I do think we are going upthough  with a fairly weak squad but i thought that of Sheffield last year and their manager has done a great job.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Sam Johnstone

I think Johnstone gets a lot of flack on here a lot of it unfairly in my opinion although i accept he does not command his box. Having watched all the keepers going back to Osborne, they are all different in their own way with their own strengths and weaknesses. The role of the keeper has changed greatly over the years and they are now sweepers and key distributors.
Johnstone is a goodish shot stopper and an excellent distributor. Last night he took  a lot of back passes ( more than necessary i thought) but was pretty faultless in that department and sprayed it out to the flanks well as well as some accurate hoofs down the middle.
So i would buy another keeper with premier experience perhaps Hart or one of the relegated keepers) and let the three of them battle it out for the number one spot. It sounds like  though Palmer is the one to watch.

I love the way palace have highlighted the knee injury in their release
"Ferguson made his senior debut for the Baggies in their first match of the 2019/20 season, making 21 appearances during the campaign before a knee injury curtailed his progress"
Palace have behaved pretty shabbily in this and it is hard to admire Parish now or Jordan before him as Chairman. Delighted though they have now lost 7 in a row though! One of the few times I wanted Wolves to win last night!
My old Grandad was a Chelsea fan and he used to say " I hate Palace in the same way as the Devil hates holy water." I know exactly what he means.

He's been given more freekicks than anyone else in the division...

So no.
But far better than the diver Grealish in the Premier League who has conned more than anyone else in that league,

If is a great poem - I have it framed on my office wall as does my son and read it at my fathers funeral 30 years ago - so true in all that it says especially:-  if you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs. Never more applicable than now.

« on: July 03, 2020, 04:46:03 PM »
Derby is going to be the hardest i feel and they are always a bit of a bogey side to us. Haven't forgotten that play off final which leaves sore memories.

We need to win the next 2 games to stand a chance of autos, playoffs are a write-off as there's no chance of a team turning it around after bottling it that badly.

I'm not remotely confident. It's not like we're playing well and getting unlucky, we've been poor since well-before lockdown. And now we've returned the players don't even look fit enough to compete.
I would like to think we still have a good chance against Hull, Wednesday, Blackburn, Huddersfield, Fulham and QPR . If we slip anymore i am pretty sure we will have Derby and Brentford will  take our spot and i wouldst fancy are chances in the playoffs if we are over hauled. I think he needs to change it though and we seem lack lustre. Good point is that we are not conceding much just need to start scoring two a game.

I see Joe Hart is being released by Burnley surely  he is a better bet if we go up? He is on 33.

Just checked and the Tweet has now been pulled. So maybe he was hacked or as an MU reporter they did not want it out?

Apparently we beat Man u today 2-1 according to Steve Stone on the BBC and Pogba played!

Yes it was dire then I remembered the Gould, Buckley and Smith era’s - just awful!

I recall going to the match with my late brother, I was filled with much trepidation and he was so very positive. It was a cracking game against a team, managed by a man with legend status, who were flying in the league and in the cups.

We were in the Halfords Lane stand (yes, I know what you’re thinking and you’re probably right) and I recall seeing Barry Davies climbing ladders at the back of the stand and walking across some scaffolding planks above our heads to get to his commentary position, always liked Barry Davies as he said nice things about us.

Brief Comments
1.   Compared to then, football today is a none contact sport
2.   The most abusive language from the “crowd” was B%^&*rd
3.   Paddy Mulligan, without doubt, is the best free transfer we ever made

Player Marks
Godden 10
Mulligan 10
Statham 10
T. Brown 10
Wile 10
Robertson 10
Martin 10
A Brown 10
Regis 10
Trewick 10
Johnston 10
Cunningham 10

Ron Atkinson 10

Happy Days they were!
Of course our best two player Cantello and Robson are not in the above. Cantello was outstanding and the lynch pin of the whole side. I too was at the game when he played we tended to win or win more convincingly. Indeed happy days.

Sort of like a force of habit, I guess!  ;D
I can see it being moved to the Sunday, though I'd rather it stays on the Saturday. Hopefully the club ask (and get) the maximum allocation!

Levy will never pay what he is worth - alwqys tries to buy cheap and sell dear. Nothing wrong but i reckon most people have him sussed so hence their lack of activity in the transfer market in recent years plus the debt of the new stadium. If he goes it will be to another club.

Peter Harvey, Graeme Smith, Tony Lang, Bob Ward, Jim Coombes, Ray Potter, Tony Cutler, Nigel spink......
Brian Jensen and Phil Whitehead were pretty goo and would hit my top 10!

Have seen all of the keepers mentioned and Hoult gets my vote ahead of  Godden, Osbourne and Miller. For that one season he was supreme.
