That link on SkySportsNews comments yesterday, "Hes coming to Newcastle", "100% to Stoke", "Dont think so hes coming to West Ham", "No coming to Wigan because of Moses deal","err No hes on his way to Sunderland", "Welcome to Everton Lukaku.", "Cant wait to see him in QPR shirt this season.".

It was like that, not one mention of us.  Massive smile on my face.

this is the post : http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11681/7976214/Lukaku-rules-out-Fulham-move

Alot of unhappy people tonight :D

Not exactly for this thread but look forward to an announcement within the next couple of days.

Did someone slip something into JP's tea  ;D. I eagerly await the news, If Olsson has signed a new contract this surely must go down as been the best summer in terms of deals this club has ever done. Just unbelievable to be a baggies fan at the moment.

Having watched absolute drivel in the forward line during the 1980's with the likes of George Reilly,Paul Williams etc.
And then such nuggets in the 1990s such  as Brett Angell and that apology of a footballer Fabian De Freitas who slept in late and forgot there was a match on!!!!
I could write loads of crap forwards but cant be ar53ed we had so many back then...
To land a footballer of Lukaku ability and quality to me is statment of intent by Ebenezzer Clarke and Ashworth.
I was happy enough with Rosenberg but this transfer puts the icing on the cake for me.
We've come along way since losing to Bristol Rovers and getting relegated at their dump of a ground (only time ive ever cried at a football match)in front of their baying inbred laughing scum.
 These marqe signings finally say to me that the club mean to stay in this league,consolidate and push on upwards..
Its going to be a tough season this year and im more confident than ever that we have the players to keep us up and push on..

You didnt get one because our lack of ambition wasnt it?  ;D

The reason I didnt get a season ticket was I was sick to death of football. Over paid rubbish in my opinion, they dive around like they had been shot in there own spit. You cannot come across many players who dont do it for money and they dont really care about the club.

They look after number one. Ben Foster is one player who i belive plays football as a way of supporting his family and now they are settled he is happy and shows that back to the fans. He is very admirable but most of the rest couldnt give a toss where they play or what colour shirt they are in.

Im excited at the prospect at Albion doing well this season but I wont be returning to have a season ticket holder as it rules your life. They decide when the matches will be, not at 3pm on saturday as it should be.

Speedway is my new love, Thursday night every time no change and you get people who get paid by how they perform...Id rather give it to someone that earns it than just takes it!



Back to point....All these attacking options excites me!

Absolutely delighted with this signing.  I think Clarkes 4-3-3 will work really well with him as the focal point.

I think it might be something to do with the fact that JP will want West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League at the start of next season when the new TV windfall comes in.

No...as much as he could be - it remains Foster.

Fantastic signing, can hardly believe this summer transfer window.   ;D

We are still a little vulnerable if we lose Olsson to injury, but what an attack and midfield we have now!  :o

We are no longer short sighted as a club, we have a 3 year rolling plan, which now seems to have gone past, factoring in the case of relegation.
The plan now seem to be planning premiership football for 3 years  plus cup runs, and top 10 finish

I just saw the breaking news on SSN and thought I was pi**ed when reading it on the screen. Am literally shaking with excitement at the prospect of our attacking form this season. My god, sign a decent centre half and we could be in Europe next season................without there being a war !!

Really exciting transfer, I wonder if he'll get straight into the starting line-up against Liverpool.
Odemwingie, Lukaku and Brunt on the left maybe? If utilized correctly Brunt's crosses to Lukaku could be the stuff dreams are made of!
We've got so many options now, all really promising. I guess it'll be Long/Lukaku and Rosenberg fighting it out for the main central striker role, with Odemwingie, Fortune, El Ghannassy, Brunt, Gera (Jesus, am i missing anyone?!  ;D ) fighting it out for the wider striker/winger role.

Really exciting time to be a Baggie

What's left to be said that has not been repeated 10 times already. But I will say it anyway, great signing and am very thrilled that we can land players like Lakaku (even though just on loan) and Rosenberg. Very exciting times indeed! Just one little side note I just hope were not to gung ho in sacrifice of the great strides me made to our defense these last 18 months. Nonetheless, very much looking forward to the season!!
