West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Next manager...

 :D Bilic any day of the week...always liked his managing style and the way he sets his teams up.
Thought he got a raw deal at West Ham. Would be fantastic if we get him in. ;D

 ;D I am beginning to think Shan should get the job with as assistant of his choice.

He was only a penalty away from getting us to Wembley and maybe PL?

Has he really done that badly considering the "tools" he has to work with??

Gayle and Brunt send-offs were not his fault but probably cost us a shot at the PL.

There are a lot of good kids in the Academy who could step up to the Chumps league.

Granted we need a new manager first but a midfield rebuild is  2 or 3 years overdue now.
The word is rebuild so I don't want to see Livermore or Brunt in a first choice team.

It's time for Field to be first choice deeper lying midfielder as he can tackle, pass and has an engine to get around the pitch when the need is there. He could play as a box to box midfielder or just sitting in front of the back four. Barring a good spell from Barry before his form tailed off due to injury, Field would not have done any worse than anyone else in the midfield for the past two seasons. He should have more first team football under his belt than he currently has, age is on his side.

With Morrison and Barry gone and Harper probably going, we need at least two new midfielders. Let's get a couple of signings in who are good ages, 26 or under, are dynamic, attack minded, with a bit of pace and importantly can pass and move .....am I hoping for too much ?
Yes been asking the same thing for years.Fans can see it but not the hierarchy 8) 8)

 ;D Maybe they are keeping us on tenterhooks and the announcement to be made in July,just before the Austrian hill bike rides...that we have re-signed Pulis???

Tea lady, it is then !
;D The tea-lady has many talents. Most pundits on here have had her playing "up front",midfield and centre back not to mention the managers position.
The question is who will be making the tea? Jenkins??? LOL

 ;D Thought he was one of the stand-out players for us in the 2 Villa games....and I was the one who said"play the tea lady ????" humble pie time.

4 defenders taking penalties say no more.
Who the fec picked that line up.
4 defenders who were absolutely knackered take the penalties FFS what is going on????? Don't blame Brunt,he was absolutely shattered and just put a tired leg out. Substitutions should have come thick and fast....NOT AT THE END FFS.

GET A REAL manager in who can sort this mess out!!!!!

 ;) Hughton has gone around the blocks a few times...looks a bit stressed out...needs a holiday. Great Championship manager though.

I personally would be happy with Monk...think he can do a reasonable job.


Holgate     Dawson    Hegazi     Gibbs

          Harper  Johansen   Field                                                             

Phillips                                      Brunt                                                   
:D Agree with this team 100% and I think they could do the job for us.

 ;D If we stay down Shakey/Appy and or McInnes combination? Anybody think this could be a good combo with Shan as Coach??

If we go up ?? Open to suggestions ? Prefer a foreign manager,maybe working with Shan?

 :D FFS take Bartley out of the team.....I would rather the "tea-lady"

My team would be a tight 4-4-2

    Holgate Dawson Hegazi Gibbs (Full backs to stay back more 1st leg and centre backs push up to penalty area  ) (not like Derby around the penalty spot

Phillips   Johanssen Field (to mark Grealish)  Brunt

              Gayle Rodriguez

Banking and pretty confident we can get a 1-1 result with this team

 :D Put Field on Grealish and follow him wherever he goes...even when he goes for a "slash"...stay with him.

That would fix 70% of Villas' progress.

 ;D Do we lose to Derby??? to keep Boro (Pulis) out ??? That is the question as to whether the "lads will turn up on Sunday or lay down"??? >:( >:(

 ;D My choices Nice, Tenerife ,Malaga.

Anyone else remember Dougie Fraser chasing Wagstaffe into the crowd at Molineux?
I do remember that...and also The Summerbee incident..where Summerbee ended up in the snow heap.
Dougie Fraser never took any prisoners...he was our Yacob of the 60's but even harder. ;) ;)

Morrison  :D i wonder if he would of slapped olsson if he mouthed off lol.
I doubt it he wouldn't be able to reach up to him to get one in ;D ;D ;D

 ;D I would give Bond a game in goal...just to keep Johnstone on his toes. Also he can only benefit from having a game in case he is needed in the play-offs.

 ;D My player of the year is Gayle...without him we would have been stuffed a longtime ago.
Special mention to Barnes for his half-season brilliance. ;D ;D ;D

I cut my teeth there before I was old enough to go to the Albion. If I remember rightly, wasn’t there a Laundry End? Along the side where the players came out. I also remember being awestruck about a guy called Oscar. Apparently he was the cock of the kop. Fantastic experience.
;D I agree had forgotten about the laundry end???  Saw many a match in the 1960's as my mate was a Saddlers fan as well as a Baggies fan.
I remember players such as Bennett, ColinTaylor, Carling (the keeper) playing then.
I think a lot of Baggies have Walsall as their 2nd team?

 ;D Fellows Park,Walsall also had lots of character...with the railway line running about 30 feet behind one of the goalposts...those were the days. ;)

  Peter Odemwingie announced his retirement at a Wembley function with media,ex-players,managers and referees present.

Great servant to us and scored many great goals not to mention 5-1 at Wolves with a "Hat-trick"

All the best "Pistol Pete" I am sure you will pop up somewhere in a coaching role.

 ;D Lets start the ball rolling. Millwall have a bit of form at the moment and only just went under against Leeds.

Can see us scrapping a 2-1 if we turn up, but maybe 1-1 if we don't. Will be a very tight game they are no mugs and need points for "safety".Will be tough.

 ;D I am going to cause controversy here but I reckon Shan can do the job,especially if we stay in the Chumps.

He knows the Club and will bring the kids through like Harper,Leko,Edwards and Field.

If we go up keep him as a first team coach and bring in a good "foreign" manager,with refreshing ideas...not the "deadpan" British regulars, we seem to give starts to.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Rekeem Harper
« on: March 27, 2019, 11:37:43 PM »
 ;) He is "ONE OF OURS" so lets look after him and just get rid of the "deadwood" pulling wages because they had "mates" in management.

We have to build the team around great prospects from our "Youth" academy....even if it means another 12 months in the Chumps....some of these "kids" have the potential to "walk" this league next season.
