Ive been wondering how people are taking this latest battle for survival at this level? After the first few months I  had hope that it wouldn't come down to this as I felt we might be in for the sort of season West Ham, Wigan, Blues, Stoke, Reading, Ipswich and now Newcastle have had of keeping themselves just far enough from the drop zone after coming up to allow for a comfortable end to the season but as usual we have thrown it away and decided to go for a dramatic end.

Personally im quite nervous as I still feel we have to be a serious favourite for relegation due to our fixtures but then again we have avoided the bottom 3 for most of the season so we still have a great chance.

How do you all feel about the battle at the moment. Are you quite positive or nervous or fed up of going through it again? Are you unconcerned or quite worried. Having done this so many times before id imagine quite a few of our fans are now quite battle hardened to this sort of thing but there might be a few like me with the bad feeling still in the pit of your stomach.

West Bromwich Albion FC / West Brom as a cartoon character
« on: March 13, 2011, 02:21:34 PM »
Time for a Fighting talk type question.

If West Brom were a cartoon character, what character would they be?

Ill start with Tigger from Winnie the pooh because he Boing's as well.

With us missing a week with the FA cup games, it's got me wondering if we should have given it more of a go this year?

Blues winning the Carling cup has has awakened people to the possibility of medium sized clubs winning things again and it isnt impossible that with a bit of luck we could.

Will us not being in the FA cup though and with us missing the semi's in the league cup help us to stay up though? We wont pick up injuries and we have more time to prepare for games giving our players a rest. Arsenal, our opponents last week, are currently a patched up side due to injuries in 4 competitions over the last 4 games so you can see why managers dont like battling on too many fronts.

Thoughts?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Michael Appleton

Michael Appleton and Keith Downing are staying on as assistant and first team coach for the rest of the season.

Good news really. Appleton gets to continue his development at the club learning under Hodgson which might give him a defensive side to his coaching after working under Mowbray and Di Matteo.

It may be a bit early to ask this question only 3 games into Hodgson's reign but which player so far has impressed you and adapted best to Hdogsons tactics.

The obvious one is Meite who has come in and looked good against 2 physical sides where he does not have to worry too much about mobile strikers (martins was poor at the weekend).

Id say Olsson but he made a couple of mistakes against Blues with their goal and a clumsy challenege at 2-1.

West Bromwich Albion FC / which wins to target then
« on: March 06, 2011, 05:41:58 PM »
Were on 32 points and probably need just over 40 points to be safe. That means about 3 wins and maybe a draw or 2 wins and 3 or 4 draws.

Which leaves the question, where do you think the wins will come from to push us over the finishing line?

Will we take some shock points from Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs or will we have to take them from games against Everton, Newcastle, Wolves and Villa?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Boinging
« on: March 03, 2011, 06:23:14 PM »
Should we boing more often, instead of just after a goal.

More British clubs are starting to catch up with the times and follow suit of Eastern and Southern European teams by creating an atmosphere with some form of bouncing, like Man City with the Poznan.

In the past, some of the boinging you see in Albion games made it look incredible. Against Wolves, we started to boing for quite a while after the goal and it looked great again.

Should we try to get this going before we have scored a goal maybe? If the atmosphere is flat or has just started to get rowdy it could give the crowd a lift. It's something id like to see those at the back of the brummie and in the smethwick thinking about.
