West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Darren Moore sacked

I’ve not posted on here for months, which is unusual for me. My interest has been slowly ebbing away.

Darren Moore was the last element of football/West Brom that retained my interest, now that has gone, so am I. I’m disgusted.

That's quite a sweeping statement given some of the competition  ;D  ;) .

Tell me about it. Couldn’t believe what I was reading. Especially when maccbaggie is the first to jump on the back of Moore when we lose!!

Once again, we won today in spite of his tactics and in-game management, not because of it.

Possibly one of the most ridiculous comments I’ve ever seen on this forum.

We are invested in Darren Moore and have to stick with him while he makes his mistakes.

As long as we stay in touch while we are trying to perfect our new system, this is fine with me.

I have doubts over some of his team selections (Brunt).

Last night was an absolute shambolic performance. I couldnt believe what i was seeing. It was as though our 11 players consisted of 2 teams.

Moore needs to learn how to deal with teams that sit back and don't take the bait to press us. So many times we baited them and they wouldn't press. Its simple stuff really. Lots of teams will do it to us. We need to work out a way of playing to our strengths (ie NOT long ball) when the team are sitting back.

Darren moore talks about playing with plan B, C, D etc. But Plan B (long ball) isn’t working.

Teams are going to do this to us all season. We need more of plan B than long ball.

I think its their fitness holding them back at this stage. Can't have players blowing out their arse at 60-70mins. They need to do the full 90 at optimum fitness.

Harper is only 18. A bit young to be thrwoing him in at centre midfield vs Stoke. He's got all the talent, bit of work on his off the ball game and adapting to the physique of the mens game and he'll be in.

In Moore we trust, he's the right man to develop him.

Stoke are screaming out for a couple of strikers. Berahino is about as useful as an arse without a hole and Crouch is about 104 years old. .......... and they're probably the best they have.

 ;D

Made me laugh this comment.

All new systems have teething problems. He’s not only changing tactics from 3 years of Pulis/Pardew but he’s trying to change ethos of the club.

These things take time.

If we can stay in touch of the top of the table until Jan when we can strengthen then we’re in a good position.

We won 7-1 against QPR and we’re quite rightly overjoyed at the result.

We lost 1-0 away to Pulis’ top of the table team. Poor performance by the sounds of it. Never mind, we go on.

No need to get the knives out.

It seems as though there is no middle position, you can only be angry or over the moon.

I’m a big fan of the trust he has of his team. Heavily delegated roles for Jones and Cutler. Seems like he lets them get on with it and gives them a lot of freedom.

Can we win the league but forfeit promotion? Don’t really want to go up! :D

Like it or not? Nothing to do with any dislike of Stoke. They've got all the hallmarks of how not to get out of the division in an upward trajectory. I think they're going to really, really struggle. Opinions.

In addition to that, I think Gary Rowett is a bit of a fraud. Hasn’t REALLY done much despite being highly rated for quite a while.

Completely different players asked to do completely different jobs.

Gayle suits us more as a bigger fish in a littler pond but Rondon is probably more suited to club that’s a smaller fish in a big pond.

Like comparing chalk and cheese really. And I think both clubs have benefitted equal amounts l.

Haven't seen anyone tell others anything and not seen anyone getting wound up.

Not necessarily in this topic but i've seen plenty of comments in the past about someone getting wound up or it annoys them when someone gives x player x status.

Apparently refusing to wear any training kit that has an Albion badge on it

BECAUSE we wouldnt sell him on the cheap. Jesus man if Burnley wanted you they would have paid up. Obviously wounded pride.

I'll be honest, i do find this debate a bit pedantic. No one has the right to tell others and vice versa and getting wound up about it is a bit OTT.

As i aluded to in the other thread, its all about opinion and how old you are. Yes will accept that those names you mentioned are as close to factual clubs legends as you could possibly be. But others will hold certain players to other statuses that are personal to them.

that word again, he's not a legend, he's a modern day favourite and rightly so.

Its subjective to the beholder. In my time supporting the Albion (i'm 32) he's a legend.

I can't put my finger on whether he looks effortless but is trying or looks effortless and doesn't try. Either way i've preferred the look of Townsend there.

Yeah, he'll never win over some. Which is a shame considering the legend that he is to the club.
