Could do with alaben getting his first home win so as to take pressure off the away games. I would make a few changes to the 11 for this one.

Think we can play without Livermore at home and have krovonovic in the centre with sawyers. Bring periera into the side in the number 10 role. Or alternatively Phillips or Edwards out for periera- who from what Iv seen this season looks our best attacking player and match winner

I was puzzled for a minute until I looked at the positions of the keys - have you got big fingers like me?  :D

EU citizens can travel in Europe, (and to the UK) on their national identity card
My German relatives come here every year, travelling on their ID cards

Tell you what, Alex Morgan wouldn't look out of place in a lot of Championship sides - easier on the eye too

Thought this was funny

A lot of people (like me  :( finishing at 1:30) will be losing half a days holiday as many firms only do Friday mornings

"How do you say West Bromwich in Portuguese? WBA in talks with surprise candidate Rui Almeida from Troyes for managerial role. Meeting already took place and he is in final shortlist. Finished 3rd in Ligue2"

I thought we had gone through all the "A" candidates  :o

The Labbadia rumours are like deja vu

Remember when we were linked with Ralf Rangnick a few years ago?

That came to nothing as well

When compred to the Bomber statue I think it's a really poor likeness

If you just saw the faces away from the shirts and the setting, you would struggle to know who they were

Surprised noone is mentioning Johnson at Bristol City.

3 months on and our board have not got a clue.
Why would he leave Bristol City (who are likely to be in a better position to chase promotion) for us

I wonder if they wan't Leko as well. BOGOF.
I was startled the other night to see their performance level against the level of our loanee players.

The loanees were busting a gut and these pair couldn't be bothered.
I know Leko hasn't had much game time this season, based on his performances when he has been on you can see why.
These pair are local lads so you would think they would have a certain amount of affiliation with the club.
Personally I wouldn't be sorry to see the back of the pair of them

Yes please, get rid of Leko
For a young player, by all accounts a local lad, trying to break into the first team, and playing against local rivals in such an important game, he did himself no favours by jogging about hardly breaking a sweat, when he ought to have been busting a gut
We might has well have been down to 9 men

Plus Rondon and Burke of course.
If all these leave the club we should bring in something approaching 100 million pounds. If just half of that is used to buy good foreign or championship players plus our talented youngsters perhaps the future isn’t too gloomy. The right appointment of a manager is a must, I would like Potter. This close season is so vital for the clubs future.

As I have said on the next manager thread, why would Potter leave Swansea for a club no more likely to go up than his present club, especially one with no ambition, money or direction
The same applies to the Bristol City manager.
Just because we were recently in the Premier League doesn't mean these managers will come as soon as we call

I understand people wanting the likes of Monk and Potter, but looking from their viewpoint, why (apart from money) would particularly Potter leave a project he has already made some progress on, for a club with no direction, who are no more likely to be promoted next season than his present club

Jacko doesn't rate him and Jacko is never wrong apparently  :o

On this occasion I agree 100% with Jacko
I have never seen anything in Field to suggest he will make the grade.
I think too many look at him through their blue and white glasses, just because he's "one of our own"

This seems to be a complete waste of time and effort to me
None of the real issues fans are concerned about are ever discussed

Nothing wrong with comparing, especially if there are comparisons.

Yes but my point is that in no way can Harper likened to Cunningham - there simply is no comparison

I find it absolutely incredible  that anyone could compare Harper with Laurie Cunningham  :o :o

Harper looks promising at times, but Laurie was a genius, genuinely two footed, pace, trickery - he had everything. I read somewhere he was the only Real Madrid player ever to be applauded by both sets of fans at the Nou Camp

The thought of Vile in playoff final is double edged for me, maybe it shows how starved of success as an Albion fan I am, but to beat that lot at Wembley would surpass anything I have experienced as an Albion fan. But to lose to them, would be beyond unbearable.

Can you imagine the journey back from Wembley if we lost to Villa  :o :o

I would prefer us to be called simply "Albion"

I don't have an problem with West Bromwich Albion, but it's a bit of a mouthful, and I hate the way it's always shortened to "West Brom"

The other annoying thing is if you put "west" into Google the first thing it comes up with is "Ham"

Definitely THE Albion

I have been watching since the early sixties so I have seen many great players - Bomber, The King, Chippy Clark. Bobby Hope, Bryan Robson, Len Cantello, Cyrille, Koumas and so on, but head and shoulders above all for ability was Laurie Cunningham (the only Real Madrid player ever to be applauded off at the Nou Camp)

« on: January 13, 2019, 06:42:32 PM »
There was a lack of forward thinking when we started ground redevelopement.

We should have started with replacing the old rainbow, and built the new stand 20 yards further back, onto what is now the car park, then followed on with the Brummie Road and Smethwick ends, which would then have left plenty of room for a mirror image of the East stand on Halfords Lane

I am sure in the long run this would have been cheaper than trying to "bridge" Halfords Lane
