they'll need to get the work experience kid to photoshop a new signing over pereira then when he goes
Be interesting to see who models the keeper strip then....of course we could use the “Sam was away on international duty” excuse.

I know its the Villa, so I dont like giving them to much credit, and they do have a load of money to spend, but can you imagine our club identifying, bidding on and getting our number one target by the 5th of June.

Great deal for Norwich too, given what they signed him for. Knowing when to sell your players i a great skill that we just dont seem to have.
Could you imagine is signin* Kanu,Amelka,Rosenberg and lukaku ?
It’s all to do with timing and place in the food chain.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Season Tickets 2021/22
« on: June 06, 2021, 03:56:45 PM »
I have noticed a lot of clubs have started selling season tickets for next season but as of yet nothing from our ticket office.

Personally I don't see how they can sell season tickets if they don't know what the restrictions will be next season like maximum amount of fans that can be allowed in.

If there any type of restrictions I won't be renewing my season ticket.

I like to arrive at the ground when I want. I like to leave when I want. I like to sit in the seat I selected. I like to have the option of having something to eat or drink. And there is no way I will sit there with a muzzle on my face.
This is such an Albion fan post

Others have done it but we haven’t ......but I don’t see how we can 😂

All ****takers not today please.
But you are in favour of peoplemalluding to industrial language on the board ?
Do you actually just mean anyone with a different opinion, or any one that dares to point out glaring deficiencies?

Has been better than many have suggested
Put a much higher work rate in than plenty players that get lauded
Scored some crucial goals on the way up

Weeeeeeeee had Kanu, robson Kanu
And overall I think we suited each other .

One of the things he needs to stop doing is being so reliant on loans. Loans with view to a permanent deal like Pereira are fine but it was obvious this season was doomed when we appeared to be spending most our time and money just trying to re-sign loan players from last season. We need to focus on building a team rather than having to keep plugging holes left by the loans every year. Not to mention relying on loans leaves at at the mercy of them being taken by the club if they do well come January. Now for next season the central midfield we've been playing for the last half a season are now all going back to their parent clubs leaving us with a massive rebuilding job there.....probably filled by more loans.

It says it all that in 3 years at the club he's still to find us anything approaching a decent permanent signing at centre forward. Grant you have to question if we even scouted given he was predomiantly a wide forward. Then the less said about the Zohore situation the better - was there a single fan of either Cardiff or West Brom who thought that was a decent deal? If we end up with another championship season reliant on Robson-Kanu up front, we'll deserve everything that happens.
Lukaku wasn’t loan to permanent.
What happened last time HRK was leading the line in the championship?

Can you name any other Albion player other than Pereira and Johnstone that will be playing in the premier league next season?

He scouted them, he popped to Barclays to get a bank draft?

just imagine the dross that Dowling will invest his transfer fee in, guaranteed he will bring in over the hill has beens or never beens on high wages.
I suppose you mean players like Pererira, Diangana etc etc....but any excuse to knock DOWLING .

A fantastic keeper.

He's up for player of the season in a side that have conceded SEVENTY goals. Tells you all you need to know.

He'll go onto far better things he's season and we'll benefit which suits both parties.

Great to see on of our players excell.
Timmy mallet was at number one in the charts once.....great musician?

Well
Where to begin...?
Being relegated, not knowing who the manager will be ,COVID , can we move who we want, can we retain who we want?
I’d like rangnick upstairs with lampard or Mcinnes .....but I don’t think that the board would or Frank would want someone “over” him.
I see some of the numbers on here for Pererira and Johnstone .....and I worry about some of you 😀....

For me furlong,O’Shea,Bartley,kipre,Townsend and semi are either more than good enough, or at least good enough if it retains stability and allows focus on more important areas .
Up top how many of you would want to be playing in defence against.....grant,Robinson,Diangana as a three?....more than enough for champ level,and yes of course I’d take Diangana as an upgrade on HRK which then gives us 4 very potent options, but in champ as a sub to hold up and batter defenders , I’d stick with HRK rather than gambling on an unknown .
Midfield.....the area , we need a destroyer, we need a 24 year old yacob, sat next to a 26 year old mulumbu...OKAY would be a dream in the chump, but he cannot do it alone , I’d be looking.. to reloan Gallagher with a fee in place if we went up......those two are good footballers and another season with us together....they will be prem ready.
Then we need a 10.....I don’t think anyone really thinks the magic man will or should stay .....and that is where a manager like lampard would instantly prove his worth, he got mason mount to derby, so depending on galacher , he could go back for a Chelsea fringe player or even Man City...but generally frank talking to a 19-20 year old future star, is a conversation they will all be open too?
Livermore, sawyers , no one is going to buy or pay their wages, so bench options and run outs in the cup....we will need legs in the chump war of attrition

I don’t 5hink keepers make that much difference over a season so go with the kids ....put the money on midfielders and I think we will be okay ...

I've read a few threads on Villa forums over the years. Every now and again someone comes out with a comment about Albion supporters being a weird bunch. Threads like this make me realise they've got a point.

When our own supporters don't think there's much point to us being in the top flight, it should come as no surprise to us should others feel there's little point to us being there either. Or even just being.

As coping mechanisms go being happy to be a bigger fish in a smaller pond seems like that of a primary school bully who's secretly scared of getting walloped in the playground at secondary school.

How depressing.
To be fair I get both sides of this argument
You spend a lot of time and effor trying to win and succeed , then when you do, being successful becomes almost impossible so you resort back to being less so and enjoying it more..

A bit like buying a brand new 1.2 Kia ceed, for 9k ......or a pretty old Porsche Boxster for 6k

I’m not sure it’s as easy as a lack of ambition, more a feeling of bloody VAR and everyone likes to win....anyway, this season we drive the Porsche, let’s hope it gets serviced.

I’ve gone lampard

Pluses
You would think he knows about midfield?
He would undoubtedly bring names that we wouldn’t ordinarily have access too
The board will know he is more marketable and therefore release a bit more funding
WHEN we win the league, he is best placed from the list to step back in to the prem
He still has a pair of size 10s
It would upset derby

Negatives
Frank lampards West Brom

who constitutes a cheap option?
John Inman 😀
My gut feeling is that Sam wants out and will therefore ask for a very large amount of money so then if we say no...it’s our fault, if we say yes he really could fail .

I didn’t say it would make him more professional...

You’re trying to play devils advocate again with a post that is not there to be spun..
That’s how I read your post, and not trying to play anything at all.
In general fans of good players want them to stay and honour their contracts, but if he was somewhere else we would be wanting him to break his contract and also the be disloyal..
Footballs a funny game
I genuinely don’t know where I am on him , but this board is somewhere between
He will stay
He will go for 35m
He will go for 90m
So I’m going to put 20p on it being somewhere between one of them 😀

« on: May 12, 2021, 07:17:25 AM »
My real choice would be Ralf Rangnick, currently looking to manage a 'traditional' German or English club. The bloke is credited with teaching Nagelsmann and Tuchel a lot about football tactics etc. The slim hope I have is that he was heavily linked with us about 8 or 9 years ago. Obviously being relegated doesn't make WBA more attractive, but there again, he was engaged in serious negotiations to manage Schalke when it was obvious they would be relegated. 

However, realistically I doubt Dowlling would be looking at anyone without an English track record, so I've voted for Lampard. He plays good expansive football, and was obviously prepared to manage Derby, a club of similar size to us.
Don’t think he would be bad for the club at all....but most of his experience is behind the manager in a mainly DOF role...him plus some one like maresca/Veira/Henry may be an absolute dream team.
I just don’t think that’s where we are looking.

Anything other than take off one forward and replace him with Kanu.  Did you really see Kanu spurring us on into getting 3 goals?  I'd have at least seen some logic to stuck him on for Gallagher or something, and put an extra man up top.
So you wouldn’t put him on
But if taking off Gallagher you would have put him on..
Does that mean that if replacing Gallagher he could have inspired us to score three goals.
If not, which one of our forwards does feel like they will come on and get three ?

20
I'd say let him go. He'll have to lick on a hell of a lot to get into their match day squad
Disagree, if they are winning 3-0 away at Burnley and want to save players for a champs league match he would absolutely get minutes.

Conveniently forgetting that he made us worse before we saw any improvement. The points tally since he arrived would not have kept us up, he failed in his stated task, alienated some players who we will need next season and played some bizarre tactics in games he himself pronounced as ‘must win’. He is not totally to blame, but is certainly not blameless.
That last sentence is key
I can’t stand allardyce, but whilst there have been some obvious improvements ... there have also been mistakes from him that seem too easily forgotten.
Posters revel in “his” 5-2 demolition of Chelsea....but our defeat at Everton was all about Gibbs being sent off .
In the Chelsea match he also had his “inspired” tactical change almost forced upon him.

22
Apparently wants a crack at the Chelsea gig next season according to the sun. I'd love a crack at Megan fox but it's not going to happen. Rubbish since Billic went.
Are you currently contracted to Megan fox ?

Embarrassing attitude. Exact reason we’re stuck with s***e like HRK on our books for 5 years, nobody at this club has any ambition to improve.
It could be said calling one of our own players ***** is more embarrassing?
I thought the whole idea on here was that people can air their honest opinions without feeling that they have to follow someone else and that the opinion is respected?

« on: May 10, 2021, 06:28:14 AM »
The second issue for me is the reaction of Pereira - if he remains professional and is committed to staying then it certainly allows us to push that evaluation further. If he’s committed to leaving the club then it may force our hand somewhat despite him being under contract. It has already been reported this season regarding his discontent.

I hope Lai and Dowling do not see a quick sale to be made here though I suspect they will.
How does him committing to stay make him more professional?
If he was at Fulham and we stayed up and put a bid in...we would accuse him of having no ambition/wasting his talent bu not coming?

« on: May 10, 2021, 06:26:26 AM »
So now it’s his turn...
Is there anybody on here that thinks that it may be a collective season of just not being good enough anchored with a few poor decisions ?
I’ve seen people slating Livermore and sawyers this week, and whilst they aren’t the best, they haven’t played for months.
DOWLING is basically going to end up in The Hague for war crimes and the rest of the players one by one will be pulled apart....not forgetting the evil lai , who somehow has ignored all the 200m bids that fellow posters have put in for the club, which is a shame because the comedy of watching some of them running West Brom would be classical carry on.
But yes....today it’s Hal,s fault.
