Re: BFTG West Brom

Two time player of the season Ali Al Habsi disagrees with you. Didn't have much to compete with did he. And Beasant was only with us for one of AAH's PotSs. I'm not sure whether our keeper's look distinctly ropey because of the awful team infront of them making them nervous, or because Beasant is s...

Re: [POLL] Is Aluko really that poor?

It doesn't take a huge amount of time to work it out just looking at the who scored / soccerbase match reports if you're interested. Interesting stat, good work. In the first half I was thinking yes he's got to be shit because we're doing so well without him. Then it all screwed up and I think both...

Re: Clement

Same problems as every other manager we've had for years. Doesn't know his best team (because the players are such gutless inconsistent performers) Doesn't know his best shape (see above) Constantly let down by his medical team and the players' fitness Regularly let down by his scouting and recruitm...

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (a) sponsored by Paxo, probably

To be perfectly honest, I'm past caring who is manager, and I'm positive we're down, so I'm happy to see if he can do better at a lower level and rebuild. Crikey, Ian. They’ve really done a number on you. Well it’s October and it seems people have given up. I haven’t yet - get a proper manager in a...

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (a) sponsored by Paxo, probably

How much time do you want to give him? It's in the post. Two full seasons. I'm resigned to relegation. I'm fed up of changing manager. It doesn't help. Sorrry, I didn’t read it. Two full seasons?!?! :shock: If PC had done anything of note here or elsewhere to justify such loyalty then you might, ju...

Re: BFTG West Brom

1st half was one of the most enjoyable 45min of football I've seen in a few seasons. McNulty was making very clever runs tbf to him. Just not used. Swift and Yiadom were fantastic going forward and Ezataholi was reading the game really well. 2nd half. Early goal and the rest of it can fukk off. Wal...

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (a) sponsored by Paxo, probably

We gave Stam almost 2 years. In 2 seasons that's time for someone to take us down to league 2. When something isn't clearly going to turn around then a change only suffices. Completely different scenario. Stam had a successful first season and we then went backwards. Clement's had no time at all. H...

Re: Gourlay Out

The only issues I have with Gourlay, are if he's so good why's he joined a falling apart Reading side on a clear downward trajectory. And why is he approving so many ludicrous contracts for the likes of Aluko, Meite, Moore etc.

And yet you’d happily have him as manager after he’s taken us down to Division 1? Convince me 1. We'll recruit someone better with experience to replace him 2. A new manager will change our squad 3. A new manager will change our scouting, medical and transfer performance And I'll jump on board. Whe...

Best half of footy for years surely?


It’s impressive but we need at least one more goal. We need to start the second half in the same way.

These days I think we need another 2 or 3.

Re: [POLL] Is Aluko really that poor?

FYI we've played:
~ 496 minutes in the league with Aluko on the pitch this season before today, scoring 5 goals and conceding 11.
~494 minutes without Aluko on the pitch, scoring 9 and conceding 5.

Aluko's contributed one assist.

Just saying.

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (a) sponsored by Paxo, probably

I'd just like to point out in the last 80 odd minutes Aluko was on the pitch we didn't score and conceded 2. In the preceding 80 odd minutes we scored 2 and conceded 1 and in the subsequent 15 minutes we've scored 1 and conceded 0..

I wonder what this might mean?

Why does Bacuna alternate good with atrocious performances? He looked dire in midweek, but was good against Brentford and has just scored.

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (a) sponsored by Paxo, probably

Hard to see how that side lines up. Could see Yiadom pushed up as a winger... maybe? .................Walker ..Gunter, Ilori, Moore, Blackett ..................Ezatolahi .Meite, Bacuna, Swift, Yiadom ......................McNulty Or as you say, wing backs with a three? ....................Walker ......

Yeah, as I was doing it I was seeing countless teams that in the right timeframe saw improvements following relegation (Reading being one). Also, plenty of traditionally 'small' teams with financial difficulties following relegation from the prem. Yep Leeds c&p error...mental to think they got ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (a) sponsored by Paxo, probably

Last time Clement said he got the team selection wrong, he clearly meant a different element of it to the rest of us, because he then continued to field one or two of the worst offenders in the next game iirc. So I'm not hopeful we won't be seeing Aluko in the XI. And yet you’d happily have him as ...

Re: Will going down be a bad thing? poll added.

I think this needs a lot more work to be useful. You need to look at say a 2, 5 and 10 year period following relegation from the Championship and slice it based on teams' previous 5-10 year standing prior to relegation. And you'd obviously have to instantly discount any side that were relegated las...
