Jeremy Peace- Deserves huge credit
« on: November 25, 2012, 09:02:27 AM »
As I float on the ceiling with the delicious feeling of being third in the Premiership, I feel we should credit JP with the fact he has managed this club really well.  Fair enough he is and will do financially really well out of it, but under him (and Thompson before to be fair), we have prospered beyond expectations.  Many Wolves fans I talk to look to us with envy and would kill to be as well managed.  He has taken some stick over the years, particularly when he was not willing to spend vast amounts on players, and when we have had dips in form.  Which brings me to my point.  Should he get more recognition from the fans- never heard a positive Peace chant and I really think he has earned one.  He will certainly be on my Christmas list.  Mr Peace- THANKS FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE!!

To be fair, he has done a great job. He had his plan and stuck to it without putting us in the slightest financial jeopardy. We now seem to be an established premier league side and our foundations are made of granite not sand. Currently, according to the bookies, we are more likely to be in the champion's league than the championship next season and much of the credit is due to Jeremy Peace.

Well done Jezza!

There is no question he has done a fantastic Job - 3rd, 3rd, have I woke up yet! I know we are loving the fact we've done it without artificial investment but when there are blips it's easy to get frustrated when most chairmen put money into there clubs, our takes it out.  He's a very good but business man simple as.  If he makes 1 mil a year out of us and gets us playing the best football since 78/79 so be it.

The man deserves a lot of credit for what he has done for this football club. I have been critical of Peace in the past but what a job he has done.

I too have been a bit critical of him in the past but overall he has done a fantastic job and we have steadily built up the squad over the years to the point where we go into every game thinking we have a chance of winning.  For so many years we have been the underdogs and expecting things to go wrong and the hardest part is actually feeling really confident in the side we now have and not really knowing how to deal with it! (not really that hard to deal with really  :D)

Well done Mr Peace and Boing sodding Boing!

He definitely deserves a chant after years of listening to muppets shouting "peace out" an telling him to "show some ambition".

I would love to hear "One Jeremy Peace" at the next home match.

I've been going to the Albion since the early 1970's and have seen many good times and many bad ones but no other period of time has been seen such an amazing roller coaster of exciting times from an Albion supporting perspective then since Jeremy Peace took control.

I sincerely hope he plans to remain in control for the foreseeable future and, for me, in terms of the type of Chairman and Owner I want to see at the Albion, he ticks virtually all the boxes.

Long may his reign continue.

There is no doubt that over time Peace has been proved right it in that a club with our resources can establish itself in the Premier league without spending money we don't have. The approach is plainly designed to ensure that he profits from his ownership of the club and that is probably a more straight forward and easily understood motivation than some of the billionare owners who seem to buy clubs on a whim as a means of self aggrandisement.

However this moment might be as good as it gets, there really isn't anywhere to go from here without investing millions in projects that do not necassarily have an obvious return on the investment. The much vaunted ground extention being a good case in point. The financial case is not obvious given that it is plain that to fill any additional capacity we will need to discount ticket prices, hence the delay. In short we are hitting the limits of what the current model can achieve. That is not to say I would welcome a change of ownership nor is it a criticism of Peace but he will not be pushing us on to the "next level" because there is no "next level" that can be obtained within the club's means.

Someone really has to talk to Olsson, long, odemwingie and the rest of the squad.  There are media pundits who feel terribly put out to have to briefly mention westbrom at the beginning of gameweek review on Monday.  There are the diehard knowledgeable (the realists) fans who are currently dreaming of a 9th or dare  I say 8th place finish in the table.  The players of Albion seem to be the only ones who believe that they can finish top 6 and make it to Europe...poor lads.

I think Peace deserves alot of credit for the success of our club. He is a realist who understands where we stand in the hierarchy of clubs in terms of our fan base and resources. By introducing the present structure with a Technical Director and Head Coach , we have continuity in the system, which reduces panic appointments and allows proper planning for the future. His choice of appointments has also proved to be pretty much spot on to date. I would hate it if the club was run by some big shot tycoon from the Middle East or America all big talk, but with no real interest in the football club, except as a net asset on a balance sheet. Peace is a genuine fan who has roots in the West Midlands and it must be an advantage knowing what makes the local culture tick.

I`ll reserve judgement until after the January transfer window as its obvious Mulumbu, Odemwingie ,
and Lukaku will need replacing, lets see how much ambition he`s got then. I personally think we`ll sink
like a stone without these 3 .

Lukaku and Odemwingie probably won't go.

Saturday has proved we can cope without Mulumbu.

Hes doing a great job.  I think he made a few mistakes early on in his reign though and he was rightly criticised for it. 
 
I think its turned in his favour when he made the decision to employ a director of football and let him run the football side of things.
 
It has been a very slow process but its work and deserves credit for sticking to his way of running the club.  We are now a club that I'm sure other similar sized clubs look at and will adopt the same model.

I thought lawro was an embarrassment last night with his tweaking comments. Fair play to him though for getting paid piles of money by the BBC for doing sweet FA...

Always thought very highly of him, this guy was cute enough to know we couldn't just chuck money at it and we needed strong foundations, he also made some key appointments at key times.
He is a business man of he highest order, those that randomly mocked him may care to look towards Portsmouth ?

In the days of billionaire owners that have pumped big money into clubs you have to think about what someone like JP could do to have achieved any more than he has with us. The infrastructure of the club has improved season by season and things just seem to be working out for us lately.

He's not the most popular person amongst some of our fans, shareholders in particular but you can't help but admire him for what he's achieved spending pretty much no money of his own to gain control of the club and get us to where we currently are.
