West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Harvey Barnes (on loan from Leicester)

If anybody at Leicester decides to send him back out on loan, we're the only club he can join. You can only play for two clubs in a year / season.

I can't see that happening, would make Puel look a right twerp

The question posed about wanting promotion is really interesting and has seen some well thought out responses supported with solid reasoning.
I would invite someone from the club to state their objective which will obviously point out they do want promotion.
We can then see if they back the words with action. I'm not meaning a gung ho attititude in the transfer window but what we have mostly agreed on to be the real strengthening of our squad with quality signings.
I also accept that these are not easy to find but the names with have been 'linked with' correctly or otherwise almost bring me to despair.

I'll be honest, apart from the Villa game I haven't sung along that much. I'm worried the police are using it as a sting operation to bump up their arrest figures. :-X

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Ex Players Thread

Completely forgot ex Albion youth player Paul Downing was playkng championshi football with Blackburn this season. Has only made 4 appearances this season and is looking likely to move back to move back to league 1 this month. Not making a bad career for himself though.

Any player that comes through the academy and has a sustained career in league football is a success story. Some academies realise this, some don't.

I'm not syaing i've heard anything BUT if Puel changes his mind is it possible for him to come back to us?

Anybody offended by the Liquidator, or any form of language it entails, needs to sit in a cellar and never come out.

If Bournemouth, a League 1-sized club with no financial advantage over other Prem clubs, can get promoted and comfortably stay midtable with a young squad playing decent football, then anyone can. You need a decent head coach, a clear recruitment strategy coming from above the level of the current head coach, a good scouting network and an owner/board who plan for the long term.

We're a bigger club than the majority of bottom-half Prem sides, we're at no disadvantage other than the fact we employ crap head coaches and have awful recruitment and zero long-term (or even medium-term) planning. Whether Dowling and Moore are the men to create a long-term recruitment strategy (I have serious doubts), and whether Jenkins would even let them (again, serious doubts) we will have to wait and see.

I won't argue with the second part of that, but I have to take issue with the first. Bournemouth do have a well-heeled owner who supports them through cash injections (or at least did to get them up). They got fined nearly £5 million by the football league for breaking FFP

We absolutely need to keep the liquidator.  When it comes on I start to dance.  My son standing next to me is usually mortified...
