Worst thing they ever done was leave Highfield Road, it is no coincidence it's all gone Pete Tong since.

No stadium and no players in terms of resale value.

The only thing they own is their training ground and they are even earmarking that for a housing development.

Looks like AJ has lost his titles. Can’t say i’m that fussed.

Yes, but it would be easier to move about than an allocated seat.
This is still a major concern for lots of us.  I haven't been back in the stadium despite being double jabbed. Certainly, won't be more likely to return with this proposal.

You only live once, get out and enjoy your life.

What about social distancing? Corona is still with us.

That is down to personal preference now. Social distancing has been scrapped for over 2 months.

Is there going to be a new member recruitment drive then? I wouldn’t mind applying for that.

IMO get off either at M6 JCT9 or M5 JCT2 and then drive to Primark New Square car park (B70 7PP) and walk from there which is a 1.5 mile walk, roughly 30 minutes.

You will have isssues whatsoever.

Unsure on this one. We shouldn’t be allowing players to strengthen rival clubs.

Managed to get the womens artistic gymnastics final and medal event.

I applied for 8 events in total and was a little disappointed to only get the 1.

I was notified at 9:45am this morning so if you haven’t heard by now it’s likely to be bad news.

We used to get good crowds as a championship side when pulling Arsenal and Man Utd out of the bag. I get the novelty has worn off a bit but I'd be disappointed if we didn't go over 20,000.

Imagine if this fixture was pulled out the hat 20 years ago. We would have been able to sell the ground out twice over.

Lionel Messi will NOT extend his contract at Barcelona.

An absolute bomb has just been dropped. 💣

I think he will end up staying on. The way in which the Barcelona statement is constructed is a plea to the Spanish FA to get this through for the good of the Spanish game.

Excellent post here from another forum:

Laughing at the comments saying WBA have f***** up here!

No they havent.

You can only sell to a buyer and they generally will only pay what they want to pay. A player is worth what a buyer values them at.

Those slating the club….. again…..

Ask yourself these questions:

Why were sporting happy to sell for pennies (in reality) - £8m
Why were WBA the only club willing to pay the £8m but only 12 months down the line IF we went up?
Why were other clubs not interested in taking him after a decent season in the Bundesliga?
Why were no other clubs interested in MP after a very good season in the premier league?

People in Football circles talk to each other - make no mistake.  We took a gamble on him knowing that it was a minimal fee in relative terms offset against £8.7m transfer fee 12 months down the line. 

We went up so another £4.5m top up to reach the £8.7m fee was easily done with promotion.

We earned circa £100m as a club getting promoted and with that secured the future of the club for a number of years, covered the losses of covid and are now on a sound financial footing.

1 year later the same player wants to leave.
1 year later we have a new manager with a different philosophy.
1 year later we are in the championship and flex down wages come into play…usually around 50% reduction.

We only receive 1 concrete offer of double the money we spent on this player only 1 year ago.

We have a manager who’s not that fussed on him.

We have a player who wants to go and earn £77k a week, near as damn it treble his earnings for the coming season.

I’d say the club hasn’t fu**** up one bit.

Oh I hope not, watching the seals tie themselves in knots about greasy jack has been the most entertaining thing I've read in months!

The guy who actually suggested this actually turned out to be Leeds fan WUM  ;D

Rooney should just get his boots back on, he’s needed and is way out of his depth as a Manager.

Don't forget, that some people are afraid of needles.

I used to tell my mom i was scared of needles. Her response would be ‘you’ll be having loads of needles if you don’t have this one and end up getting ill’.
