West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: West Bromwich Albion (R)

Read another Madeley article this morning on Bilic's demand to sign Grant , absolute madness at this level .
I'd have been up in arms as much as the next bloke but maybe we should have done a Watford and parted ways with Slav in the Summer . Clearly both parties were far from happy .


This is precisely what should have happened. They knew they couldnt work together. Also confirmed he felt we needed a holding midfielder but felt getting Krov and Grant etc was far more important. Insane.

Slav could have walked away with his head held high and cash in his back pocket and reputation enhanced and we would have a good shot at staying up.

30m quid and 1 completely unbalanced squad later, Bilic got a smaller payoff and created one of the worst sides in PL history.

Anyone heard of anybody being unsuccessful?


No email means no success. Some of my mates applied and havent had an email while 4/5 others have had the email and got in.

You are right, the choices open to us realistically are in the main garbage. Lampards expected to replace Roy at Palace according to todays news so it doesnt leave a fat lot at all.

Hopefully hes healthy enough for one more season.

Be careful what you wish for. Just toying with the idea of lower league football could easily lead onto a slippery slope where we end up as another Oldham Athletic or Port Vale. Or worse. A couple of poor gambles on players or managers and we go in to debt, which could easily end in insolvency.

Very true. No one seems to think of this or the danger it puts our club in.

Actions speak louder than words.  The actions said it all really with Diangana offering a bit of a passifying divergence but kind of ending up as a sacrificial lamb on the altar of failure.


I like the cut of your jib

Theres 2 viewpoints really to me. As a fan and looking for returns on the financial investments we make along with our time etc then sure, we all would love to see our club win 90% of the matches we play but that's not reality unless we drop into the rubbish leagues.

From the clubs long term point of view we must be in the PL as much as we can be. The club will go on long after all of us are dead so we don't really have any right to wish it into the footballing bogs of doom. I'd rather us get rogered senseless sometimes in the PL than scrat about looking for pennies in the lower leagues.

I doubt the club would trigger his deal unless they were certain a) they have a buyer lined up and/or b) the manger actually wants him in the squad.

Definitely but all it takes is the buyer to change their mind and thats 2m quid down the swan in wages.

No thanks to Maresa. Another not experienced enough for what is a crucial, crucial season ahead. One for the future perhaps but let him pay his dues elsewhere.

It doesn't say they are determined, it may be that it is just inevitable.

This information combined with the other noises from journalists etc make me think it is inevitable. We are weakening our own hand i think.

Giving him a contract extension on 40k pw or whatever on the chance of receiving a nominal fee is risky business and one thats bound to backfire.

I remember you Bakeyface. Thanks for coming back with this info.

Disappointing to hear they are determined to sell Pereira, that means they will likely lowball us on him in terms of a fee. Also not too happy about Wilder as his transfer dealings are muck.

When do we think we find out if he is staying? We can't wait forever  if he has no plans to stay I'd just call it a day now and start planning for next season.

First round of discussions set for tonight i believe.

Any not bought will be offered on to the next selected the email said.

Is it me or is it not strange sending the above to successful applicants but nothing to unsuccessful ?

Pretty standard practice i would say. It's a 'prize draw' essentially. Only notify the winners.

Anyone who hasnt had an email, check your spam especially if you use Gmail.

Yes,  my email was in my junk folder.

15
Notification was by email so if you ain't had one by end of today i'd say you were unlucky.

We have 24hours from Sunday 9am to buy them. Any not bought will be offered on to the next selected the email said.

16
Makes sense i think, will ensure plenty of space between supporters

17
Whooo! I'm in too

18
YEEEESSSSSSS! I'm in.

Check your Emails guys. Good luck.


Fair play mate!

Yeah, but you can bet they'd throw the BIGGEST cabbages they could find. Some of our supporters would probably settle for slinging sprouts, the smallest ones they could spare  ;D  ;) .

 ;D  :D

They would rather just keep the sprouts in the bag. Just in case of something, anything

Albion fans have always been a weird bunch since ive been going up regularly from 1991. I don't understand half of them which is sad to say.

Small piece on Sam just gone online by the Mirror saying as expected wants to know who's going and who isn't. Cant discuss it here of course but there's also a comment on who they are likely to turn too if they break from Sam if you are interested

Making the Brummie an all seater sowed the seeds of destroying the natural social structure of what supporting our club was all about. And I’m sure many older supporters at most clubs feel the same. Starting a song or surge was great fun. The fun has gone. At least, I had fun. Loads of it. 😀

I used to love the Brummie as a kid squashed down the front in the early 90s before it got turned into all seating. Used to be a cracking atmosphere. I sit in the Smethwick now and the Brummie seems quiet most the time even when we are doing well.
