Thinking of all my fellow Baggies going through the hardest of times x

What a lovely gesture from the club, it’s bought a tear to my eye. Stay safe everybody and I hope to catch us at The Hawthorns one last time before I go on my adventure.

A poem written fonetikley (phonetically), in Black Country accent, by my very funny uncle, Chris Cartwright, April 2020.

We Need Ter Stop In – a Black Country Ode to COVID-19

by Chris Cartwright, April 2020.

We need ter stop in
Best not ter goo aht
Iss dodgy aht theer
Theer’s a virus abaht!

At best yo’ll get sick
Yo could wind up jed!
It doe tek much figerrin’
Try usin’ yeah yed !

If yoan gorra goo shappin’
Then leave a saefe gap
Between wheer yo’m stondin’
An’ the next nearest chap

If yo’m lookin’ fer bog roll
‘Ond gel or soap
I con saeve yeah a journey
Yo got no chuffin’ ‘ope

Iss important ter exercise
Ter stay ‘ealthy an’ strung
Just doe tek the mickey
An’ stop aht tew lung!

An’ if we all use some common
An’ show we bay fules
We con beat this ‘ere virus
If we foller the rules.

Stay saefe folks! Chris.
If it was easy, it wouldn't be Albion

A wise old owl sat in an oak, the more he saw, the less he spoke
The less he spoke the more he heard, why aren't we like that wise old bird?

It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.

That’s brilliant, amazing story. Glad it helped you John.
 


I lost my dad 3 days ago to Coronavirus and has completely ripped my life apart. He was only 57 and my best man at my wedding just 6 months ago.

Jake Livermore phoned me yesterday to have a chat. Unbelievable gesture.

He is a lovely man and I am so proud to support such a special club.

We are Albion.💙

Take care Tipton Throstle, heart felt condolences.

I lost my mother some time ago, she was also quite young, (early 60's), & even now, I remember how I felt. "Ripped my life apart" certainly resonates with me.
That was in "normal times", it must be really difficult in today's climate, the call from Jake must have helped to lift your spirits a bit
I wish you & yours well in this difficult time & it must be good to know you have the support of the Albion family

From someone who has lost a couple of close people too, I am really sorry to hear of your loss Tipton.

It is fantastic that the club are touching base with so many of the Albion fans and for Jake to call you was wonderful - a great guy.

Your wedding must have been special with your Dad as best man.

Take care mate
What have we done?
And what have we become
In this distance from our Mother
From the gates of late Eden?

Hearing all these stories just show you how much class is at our club and we should all be proud of the club.

We need to get this message out to the media to show the rest of the country what a class club we support.

In times when we hear all the selfish acts and stories around footballers its great to hear things like this.

Pity our country isn't run the same way as West Brom.

Stay safe everyone and pure respect to all at Albion !!!

Thank you all fellow Baggies for the lovely messages.

I am raising money in his memory so if anybody has a couple of quid they can donate to a worthy cause it would mean a lot.

Thank you again

Hope it's not too clumsy of me to say that I am really sorry for everyone who has suffered loss but especially for those posting on this website as they're part of the Albion family  - and well done to the club for the telephone calls.

Just read that to my missus who is in bits now with tears streaming down her face. She said between wiping her eyes now I understand why you love that football club.
