trash talk sells tickets but can backfire like last night.
He should have retired after the Mayweather blag, I'm not sure what else he aims to achieve in MMA.
He'd make a decent career out of films, ala Seagel, Van Damme, etc

I don't know what the all fuss is about with this cabbage being found on the pitch, they're bound to find one occasionally when there's so many of them in the stands.

No doubt they'll hang on for the Special One, he"ll be looking for a new start soon.

He's always fancied managing a big club

Another draw, can they afford to sack Bruce? Hope not.

Good that Villa didn’t lose last night it means Bruce keeps his job, and the unrest carry’s on for another week.

On Joshua's early round performance wilder will knock him out with ease
Being honest, I'm not particularly a Joshua fan, but I thought he did well against what was probably his most aggressive opponent so far.
Joshua V Wilder if it ever happens will be a spectacle, and I hope it will be a 2 fight deal.

On a side note... Lawrence Okolie... Joke of a fight last night and my word does he have some redemption to find!
Should have been disqualified and absolute garbage to watch.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Modern Day Heroes or Legends
« on: August 18, 2018, 10:39:44 AM »
It depends on where modern day starts and yesteryear finishes really I guess that as time moves on that boundary will shift.
For me the last legendary players were Bomber and Cyrille who both finished for us in the early to mid eighties. Robson although a great player will be forever linked with our demise in my opinion anyway, let's face it he stands out as a legend amongst legends at United. I remember his clenched fist salute to the hordes of United fans in the smethwick when he scored on his return in their colours thankfully we still battered then 3-1 I think but it was too late the tide was turning and we were going in opposite directions.
Ahem Anyway
Modern day heroes are many, Taylor, Moore, Gaardsoe, Gera, Phillips, the list goes on.
A couple who could have been modern day legends perhaps are Koumas and Odem both with the ability to change games in an instant but we all know how it went.
It's funny because you don't need legends to play in legendary games and those games don't necessarily need to be for cups or championships, I'm thinking the 3-2 win over Wolves in 93 and obviously the 5-1. Swansea 93 etc etc.
A shout out for Megson as has already been said, he's a legend for me.

Mark Lawrenson is the biggest bell3nd ever to walk into a commentary studio
id take Lawrenson every time over Martin Keown and Lee Dixon.
Can't stand Ian Wright either.

I agree and your right it was only one game. One was against Spain and one was against Iceland though, no offence to Iceland.

I just don't get the sense that Messi has the will ,when compared to Ronaldo , to drag the team by the scruff of the neck through the tournament.

That's what sets him apart for me.
Neither of them compare to Maradona in that respect, and neither does Pele who played in some of the greatest ever teams.

City have earned the right to play whatever team they like on the last day of the season.

Theyre looking to set new records for points, wins and goals so I would imagine they'll be focused on a grand finale.

Got previous links with us, could bring the relative success of Pearson with him but without the nonsense.

Mcinnes, Appleton ,Potter not for me.

I remember a gang of the cheeky feckers in the Brummie when West Ham relegated us in 86, funny thing was that they got relegated the same season to the 4th division.
Anyway It didn't end well for them.

Here's hoping a strong cross wind blows the banner into the propeller.

I see this as the club communicating to the fans via the media; and basically saying we're in trouble.
Funny because I don't see his statement as a negative one, a small overdraft in footballing terms is needed I'm assuming to tide over the loss of revenue and possibly some high earners we cant shift.
But in the long term, hes back and focused and knows where its gone wrong.

The interesting comment for me was "What worked 8 years ago won't work now"

Does that mean he's not expecting to unearth any diamonds like we did under Dan Ashworth?
I think its more relating to how JP ran the club financially 8 years ago rather than our scouting dept not being able to spot a player with potential in the lower divisions.

I'm not entirely convinced with AJ I've got to be honest, and as bad as Wilders boxing skills and technique are, he's always one big right hand away from turning the fight around.
God knows what fight the judges were watching looking at the score cards at the time of the stoppage. All had Wilder ahead 85-84 seems suspect to me.

Wilder V Ortiz tomorrow morning.
Thoughts fight fans?
Wilder weighed in at 15st 4lb seems a bit on the light side to me, I wouldn't be surprised to see him touch the canvass at some stage but still fancy him for the win.

Remember a local lad in the early 90's think his name was Bowen, maybe Shaun?
Sure he played against Peterborough, may have even scored?
stewart Bowen I think he was from Hill Top, i remember he scored v Fulham at ours.
Pretty sure he's a millionaire business man now.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Official: Jonny Evans joins Leicester
« on: February 25, 2018, 03:53:24 PM »
It's all good and well saying we should of took the high offers for Evans of previous windows but at those stages he was a pivotal part of this squad who would of been near enough impossible to replace. Football is a sport of ifs nuts and maybes.
Did you mean Divs, nuts and babies?

I agree
