Wonder if its Villa again , done a lot of good work for the Albion.

He once turned down Man Utd to stay with us, so something major here.Does smell of Harrison and the Villa though.

This is beginning to more than extract the urine.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

They clearly have no interest in what Paul Dowling is doing.

From memory he left for Villa once before and came back within a week.

Quite clearly, they are doing very well with the other agents they have recruited from us  :D

Something does seem wrong at this level of the club, as Hopcroft is just the latest of a string of key staff we've lost. If he's in the middle of a contract, would he be in breach, and if so could we demand compensation from a new employer? If its Villa again tapping up our Academy staff, that's reason enough to hope they get relegated.
I suppose it would be proof our Academy is one of the top ones in the country. Its vital that Dowling and the management gives it the attention it needs.

I'm quick to jump on Jenkins and Dowling but the changes they've made to the academy seem sensible to me, if these people don't like it, then good riddance. They've not provided a Jude Bellingham in 15 years.
Proud to be a Baggie. BOING BOING.

U23’s goalkeeper Brad house has announced his departure from West Brom on Twitter.

Makes sense as he was behind Palmer and Griffiths plus potentially Cann and at 22 he needs to be making waves for a first team opportunity soon.

I was talking to a relative of his just after Christmas and he knew then that he would not get a contract, shows that what we perceive as news is often known by the relevent parties long before, in this case, as it should be so that he can look for a new club.
