Spotted in a Dutch newspaper, Galatasaray Director is fed up with Ryan Donk's sex parties!
Though you can read it 2 ways. Either he is fed up with how its effecting the team's performances, or he thinks the parties are too boring!

He's had 3 good games already though, that means he's only got 2 left! If I was Snodgrass, I'd be staying fit!

Fair play to Matty though and you are right, when he's on song, he can turn back the years, just hope he can keep it up for the next 7.

Snodgrass is carrying an injury. He's had an epidural and is expected to be out for another seven to ten days.

how much would posters shell out on him?  For me the answer depends on how much we could get by disposing of Grant.

I think we're particularly weak at centre forward. Any injury to Kane and the drop off is alarming.

Stan's point about goalkeepers is spot on too. Hopefully Henderson can step into the void once he gets De Gea off his back at club level.

Also looking at the quarter finals from an English perspective Chilwell and Alexander-Arnold at full back and Stones at CB. Lack of a Goal keeper or another CB being the only real gaps. It is really unfortunate that Joe Gomez career seems destined to be injury blighted otherwise I think we are only short of a keeper from this being quite easily the most promising generation of English talent certainly since the early 2000's

Yeah he saved his first 3 penalties he faced. Sadly didn't save any that really mattered in the POs.

Watched a game against Norwich earlier when Big Dave was in charge and noticed Sam saved a penalty which I'd forgotten about. Led me to looking up his stats...

21 penalties faced for WBA, 12 conceded and 9 missed or saved (could have been more without VAR for the Bruno penalty)


Think he had about 3 out of 4 of the first penalties he faced saved. Believe there might have been a very soft one given against us when playing Derby early that season as well.

Shame in the Villa shoot-out that most of our top penalty-takers were unavailable due to suspensions, injury and substitutions. While Villa were able to gloat about bringing on an eight figure signing deep in extra-time just to take a penalty.

I cant remember a keeper with a better record than that for us , I remember having Carson in goal and having zero faith in him saving the penalty, with Sam I always have the belief he will keep it out.

The first keeper I remember was Hoult so we might have had someone with a better penalty record than Sam prior to Hoult.

Just thought this was quite interesting and got me thinking  ;D

Will we get the opportunity to see wearing the stripes in the flesh??? It will be horrible if we never get the chance to show him a proper Hawthorns welcome ☹️

You are right it would be horrible. But it may well come to pass. He is bound to have other suitors after his displays for us.

An older manager can stay for a long time. If you look at Allardyces history, it doesn’t suggest he does that. His longest stint was Bolton which was his first job. He was at Palace, Sunderland, Everton and Newcastle for a year and Blackburn for maybe 2. He also was at England for 1 game so he’s done better here ;)
How many clubs has Hodgson had? ;)
He still claims that Palace is one of the proudest periods of his career. There's no reason Allardyce can't emulate what he did at Bolton.

I know I sound pro-Allardyce but I'm not necessarily, I just find it mad that the club are accused of short termism, yet the answer seems to be sack a manager of his pedigree and start all over again with a younger, more progressive coach, when the truth is that this is almost impossible to achieve with out budget.

Add to this, Daren Moore was a young, progressive coach, who gave youth a chance and that didn't end well and not just with the board but with a large section of our own fanbase.
