West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Tony Pulis
« on: Yesterday at 10:37:58 PM »
Had a much tougher run than we have also. Hats off to them, wish we had the bravery to play that way.

But if we win tomorrow we'll have more points than them after playing the same amount of games without playing brave decent football

The other Albion scored 3 away, play decent football. More points than us.

Proof you don't need 11 behind the ball.

Also played a game more than us..

It's usually the teams who concede most goals who get relegated.

Thought of the day. If we never appointed Tony Pulis back in January 2015 where would we be currently?

I think there's a strong possibility that we'd have gone down. And we'd probably still be struggling in the Championship now.

As much as it was exciting to be yoyoing up and down, the Championship has strengthened greatly over the past 5 years. No way would I want to be down there now struggling to get out. We'd also not have been bought by Lai I'd imagine, and still have Peace who would likely not be wanting to spend his money in the Championship.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Best Albion XI

Since we've been doing the worst XI, what about the best?

My brother said we had 2 sections less than most clubs (the one on the end) and we didn't fill what we were allocated. Full away allocation at kingpower is 3,000, it extends around into area adjoining family stand, Aer kid was shocked how few we took. As stated above those that went made significantly more noise than the leicester fans.

Didn't they also have those clapper things too?

I was also thinking pulis may have thought it was a 'waste' of a sub so to speak, since he usually utilises all 3 during the game

I quite like the curse. We are managerial assassin's, ridding the Prem of sub par managers.

Could also be seen as a negative, as in you couldn't even beat West brom/you managed to make us look worse than West brom, you're fired!

He really should have come off....he can't be that much better than Palmer that he had to stay on when he couldn't kick or move properly. Experience doesn't make up for being crocked.

Get the impression he plays the village idiot role in the club and seems pretty popular (but that's irrelevant to the match)

I get that impression too. Thought pulis looked a little awkward too when answering th question about not bringing on the youngster due to lack of experience

West Bromwich Albion FC / Worst Albion XI
« on: October 17, 2017, 09:04:59 PM »
Now that got your attention. Thought we could have a bit of a laugh and look down memory lane. Considering we've got probably one of our strongest squads now, what would be your worst Albion XI? Can add subs if you can't decide and a manager of course.

Deserves a bit of praise for last night , solid performance

'"It's just good to be playing, when you've spent the past year watching football, it was awesome to play."

Seems a nice chap who had a laugh in his interview after the game

Yep, said it was him that said he didn't want to come off as well, since he'd been waiting for his chance for so long.

Had a Pulis interview on the radio this morning saying Foster tweaked his knee playing football with his son at home!

Don't try to be clever, Pulis keeps picking him doesn't he?

Don't need to try. Rondon was one of the better performers tonight. Stuart Evans.. Please

That is why we are where we are, Rondon is not the answer in fact he is one of the worst forwards I have seen in an Albion shirt along with Paul Williams, John Thomas  and Stuart Evans!!

Thought it was all Pulis' fault?

Or maybe I've got the intelligence to realise that we aren't going to be playing tika taka style and just try and enjoy what i can instead of fighting the system and ruining the happiness i get from games.

Id advices just not bothering if you really struggle to enjoy at least a medicorum of whats on display.




if we were as terrible as we were that 15/16 season id totally understand, id be calling for pulis head, like i was back then. but we aren't. We've come a long way since then. I just wish people could grasp that.

This is what I was mentioning in another thread about people turning up and moaning before the Game has even started. Just look at the pre match thread for most games this season as an example. Really sucks the atmosphere and fun out of going to the games when people have made their mind up before a ball is kicked.

look how much time and space the Leicester player had to put the cross in, dawson instead of closing him down just retreats into the area, first rule is to try and stop the cross coming in.

Watch it again. Rodriguez is as much to blame and puts in a half arsed closing down job. Shows why he shouldn't be on the wing in our setup. We lose his attacking threat and he's not exactly a defender either, so pretty pointless

I agree with this.

I think Rondon has to start every game, Rodriguez for me stays on the bench as he's ineffective on the wing.

Struggling to see where he fits in to be honest. Doesn't suit the lone striker role in our setup and isn't a winger.

Leicester didn't exactly sell out either and they won the league the season before last!

Greg doesn't seem fully fit, or properly tuned in to the pace of the Prem yet, but he has got a touch of class about him.  Gibbs a proper player, what a steal.

Looked to be limping at the end too

Just seen the goals. Great free kick from Chadli. Their goal shows why it's pointless playing Rodriguez on the wing. He's not offering enough going forwards since he isn't a winger, and defensively... he's not a defender. Their goal the left back has so much time to pick the cross out and isn't closed down at all. Also getting beaten in the air again in the box is worrying. That's a couple of games now

Myhill saying he took one for the team! Decent interview after the game to be fair. Said he didn't want to come off and the players carried him
