West Bromwich Albion FC / What sort of fan are you??
« on: October 09, 2015, 12:33:54 PM »
Seeing as it's a bit quiet, thought it would be fun to see what sort of fan we all are. Someone posted a profile of the modern football fan, which made me laugh, but made me think of what I'm like at a game.

I'm regarded as pretty laid back, sensible, chilled out and easy going by friends and colleagues, but when it comes to matchday I become a monster! I moan, get angry, shout, basically changing into another person and that's just when we win! If we lose, everyone suffers, missus, daughter, dog, cat, the lot, I'm like a bear with a sore head until Monday, by which time my attention turns to the next game and I get all positive again.

Am I normal?  :-[

If anyone is interested and can be bothered, maybe a poll would be an idea to gauge what sort of fans we are? Not sure what options we would need, maybe Angry, Chilled, Stoical, Depressive, Nervous.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Squad
« on: August 04, 2015, 03:27:27 PM »
As I see it, this is what we have at present:

GK - Myhill, Rose, Foster (Injured)

RB - Dawson, Gardner, Chester
LB - Brunt, Lescott, McClean
CH - Lescott, McCauley, Chester, Olssen, Dawson

CM - Fletcher, Yacob, Morrison, Brunt, Gardner
RM - McManaman, Morrison, Gardner Berahino
LM - McClean, Brunt, Berahino

CF - Berahino, Lambert, Ideye, Anichebe

I make that 18 fit players, leaving a shortfall of 4 to complete JP's 22 man squad.
Ideally, what 4 positions would you like adding to?
I think:
1 x CM
1 x RM
1 x LM
1 x GK

West Bromwich Albion FC / Dare to Dream.......?
« on: July 06, 2015, 01:33:58 PM »
Ok, so there's a great thread about the takeover, but that is about the nuts and bolts and what's and wherefors, this one is about our Dreams as supporters, what is the absolute most you can dare to dream about following the pending takeover?

Are we condemned to the midtable soup, hunting desperately for 40 points every August, whatever funds we have available, or can the right owner really kick us on to another level. If so, how high can we go? Stoke? Everton? Tottenham? Liverpool? Higher......?

I would be lying if I said I hadn't allowed my mind to wander and create visions of our great club at the top of the Premier League and competing against Europe's best, with 40,000 fans turning up each week, in our newly extended Hawthorns.

Is this realistic? Probably not, but who cares, let's allow ourselves to dream, it's what being a Baggies fan is all about. ;D

West Bromwich Albion FC / Yo-Yo vs Stability
« on: April 17, 2015, 11:02:13 AM »
Looking at the Norwich - Middlesborough game tonight made me a bit jealous and got me thinking. Were we better off as a yo-yo club?
Would you rather finish 15th every year or swing between a relegation battle and promotion?
Personally I love the Championship, with the only downside being that your aspiration is promotion back to the greed league, so I would rather yo-yo a bit than just exist as cannon fodder to the mighty 5.
I know the Prem is where the money is, but does that really matter to us fans, it's not like we see any of it and I can't say the quality of player is much better, they are just paid more and try less!

West Bromwich Albion FC / How many points will stay up
« on: February 17, 2015, 03:42:45 PM »
Need a distraction from the Villa game, so quick question. How many points will survive this season?

I have done a predictor and have the bottom 3 as QPR, Burnley and Leicester all on under 30 points, with Hull in 17th on 30. We are comfortably safe on 38.

I think my predictions are fair and can't see any of them getting near 35 let alone 40.

Helped ease my troubled mind for a bit anyway.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Would you sacrifice survival for cup glory?
« on: January 26, 2015, 08:36:53 PM »
No brainer for me, if I could get to see us win the FA Cup, I wouldn't care if we never kicked a ball in the Prem again.
Best chance in years, hope we go all out for it. No more Lescott at left back and Gardner on the wing nonsense.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Target 38 points
« on: January 06, 2015, 10:18:06 AM »
Ok, we all know we have an horrific run in, so let's, hypothetically of course, right off the last 5 games. Before anyone starts screaming at me for being negative, I know we can get points from the big boys, but that's not the point of the thread.
So, if we need 20 points from the next 13 games, where will they come from?
Here's my attempt:
Hull City H 3
Everton A 0
Tottenham H 0
Burnley A 3
Swansea H 3
Sunderland A 0
Southampton H 1
Aston Villa A 0
Stoke H 3
Man City A 0
Leicester H 3
Crystal Palace A 1

6 wins included in that, which highlights the depth of the challenge ahead. Without Pulis, I don't think we would have made it, but now I think we will be all over it.
What's everyone think am I being optimistic?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Pulis type players
« on: January 05, 2015, 10:08:16 AM »
Who do we see as Pulis type players?
I think this lot will be his type of player:
Anichebe  :(

This lot I'm not so sure:

What's other people's thoughts?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Rob Kelly
« on: December 30, 2014, 07:23:49 PM »
Just seen him on Sky and he really does not look interested, bordering on contemptuous, with regard to West Ham game. Surely someone like Big Dave would have a better chance of victory than someone who seems sure to follow Irvine out of the door.
Anyone else seen his interview?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Where will the points come from?
« on: December 22, 2014, 11:55:55 AM »
So, here we are after 17 games with 17 points, question is if we are to hit the mythical 40 points, where will they come from?
Looking at the games we have left, I have us finishing with only 35, which will likely mean relegation.
I reckon 5 wins, 3 draws and 13 defeats, including the next 3 and the last 5.
Please tell me I am being pessimistic!  :'(

West Bromwich Albion FC / Horrible run coming up
« on: December 19, 2014, 02:42:48 PM »
Looking at Xmas and New Year, our fixtures are a bit horrible.
We have 3 away games to 1 at home, and that's Man City, between now and 10th Jan.
Tomorrow is definitely the most winnable so I hope we really go for it.

What's the predictions for our points total on January 2nd?

I'm going for 18, which will be pretty grim after 20 games so I hope I'm wrong..

West Bromwich Albion FC / Highs and Lows
« on: November 19, 2014, 11:26:03 AM »
What are your highest and lowest points as a Baggies supporter?
I thought about mine and realised that they are inextricably linked and proof, if any were needed, that it is not just about winning or points on the board.

Drawing at Bristol Rovers and going down to the old 3rd division. Never have I felt or seen such pain in grown men! Whilst it was an awful day, I realise now that it is one of my most vivid and emotional football memories and I wouldn't have missed it for the world.

Beating Port Vale at Wembley. What a day! Unbelievable support and the beginning of our resurgence within the game. Real Phoenix from the flames. This couldn't have happened if we hadn't gone through the pain of Bristol Rovers.

This sums up real football for me, it is about passion and emotion, both good and bad and you can't enjoy one without the other.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Why can't we win at home?
« on: November 18, 2014, 04:31:06 PM »
Can't be Irvine's fault because it started under Clarke and continued under Mel.
The dressing room has been up, down and up again from what we hear yet results remain poor.
Is it because the home games are deemed more winnable therefore there is more fear of losing
Is it our fault? Is the nervous energy from the terraces affecting the players?
What would you do to try and change things?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Berahino vs Mozza Round 2?
« on: November 18, 2014, 10:52:55 AM »
Both in their respective squads tonight, wonder how it will go if they get a 50-50?  ::)
Seriously though, even though it's only a 'friendly', it's great to think there could be 3 or 4 Albion players on show tonight. Perhaps things aren't so bad.

West Bromwich Albion FC / 2 for 1
« on: July 07, 2014, 09:02:32 AM »
It seems to me that our recruitment strategy may be to look at players who can play more than one position, thus allowing Peace to run with his smaller squad and keep the wage bill low.
So far we have Lescott (CH, LB), Gardner (RB, CMF), Baird (RB, LB, CMF) we are also linked with Richardson (LB, LMF) amongst others.
If this strategy applies only to cover players and frees up valuable funds to bring in 3 or 4 top quality specialists then it may pay off, if not, however and we end up with a starting 11 made up of 'versatile' Jack of all Trades we would be found out very quickly.
Anyone else think this is a pre-defined plan?
