pretty sure it was the 1982 league cup quarter final, decided by a derek statham goal at the north stand end. the last win there in the league was towards the end of the 78-79 'nearly season' decided by john trewicks header at the holte end.

we are way overdue against these smug arrogant divs, hopefully its this season.

theres not much that i disagree there with mate.

JP is a business man, i took the 'albion fan' tag out a long time ago. its not something that particularly bothers me, i view him the same as the coaching staff and players, he's here for career reasons and if the right opportunity presents itself he/they will move on. whether we like it or not, thats the name of the game in modern football, and the only people really here for the love of the club is us, the fans. look at hughesie, as soon as cov waved the wad he was gone. do you think odemwingie or mulumbu will want to stay around if the right opportunity presents itself to them? do you think hodgson will stay around if he is offered the england job, or another high profile job? 

that may well seem unpalatable to many, but its just the landscape of modern football these days and has been caused by the huge influx of money, via sky, into football. i've never had a sky subscription personally due to how i knew their influence would affect football, and i hope all those who criticise 'career' chairmen, players, managers and coaches arent feeding the frenzy caused by sky by subscribing to them, as that is where the root of the problem lies.

for JP to make the maxiumum return from his 'investment' the club will have to be healthy and successfull, so the ambitions of both entities are interlinked. hopefully when the time does come for JP to sell up then the next person in charge will be more of a peter coates than a carsen yeung, obviously that remains to be seen.

Fair play to him though,the money he saved on players in the window allows him to buy these shares.



this share purchase isnt being funded by the club, its being funded by JP and will not affect the transfer budget or club turnover.

The fact that JP doesn't have 80 or 90% shareholding is stopping us selling the club in my opinion.

People wanted to know why investers were interested in the likes of Blackburn etc and not us well I think that is your answer, it is too messy.

However, I don't think people should just 'sell up' because they have too, if they feel it's worth more to them than the offer then fair play to them and good luck.

Personally I think this is the next step to selling the club.

If he leaves us an established Prem club with no debt and makes a few bob out of us then I think that is a very good deal for both the fans and JP. Surely that's a win win situation?



the 80% share ownership issue is crucial.

once you hit 80% it activaties a compulsary share buyout for the remaining share stock. obviously anyone wishing to invest significant capital in the club will want full control, rather than a controlling interest, in the club.

JP now holds 60%, he's after another 5% now, if he achieves that then i expect he will make an offer to geoff hale who holds just over 10% in the club, which will leave JP on a total of 75% if he succeeds. just 5% shy of the compulsary offer figure. he will then persue the final 5% he needs for the compulsary buyout and then market the club for sale.   

IMO.

I suppose we should give them the benefit of the doubt, I just find it very hard to believe that they didn't realise until they got up to the stand.



honestly lloydy, i know the lads involved and there is no chance whatsoever that they would intentionally disrupt the minutes silence. no way. i would never defend someone knowingly breaking a minutes silence.

they may have been guilty of being half cut and stumbling inadvertantly into it, but there is no way that any of that crowd would do something like that on purpose. no way at all. theres no malice whatsoever in that bunch of lads.

give them the benefit of the doubt, they are all decent lads.

I notice that the thread about disruption of the minutes silence has been locked.



i didnt make any comment on that thread so i would like to make a quick one here.

i know the lad who said that he came in late to the game with some other lads and it was them who broke the silence accidentally. i was supposed to be travelling down with them to the game but had to pull out at the last minute.

they're a great bunch a lads who love the albion and like a drink. the is NO way on earth that any of that crowd would have intentionally broken the minutes silence. theyre all decent, respecfull lads and i expect theyre all gutted that they accidentally caused any upset. none of them are troublemakers.

as for the miners song then anyone who took part in that needs banning from following the club, an utterly shamefull act by a few braindead divs.
