    makes you wonder whos pulling the strings,you cant tell me we dont have the money to buy decent young players. is it the ownership saying you can only bring in loanees. why not give our wonderful academy players a chance.after all it seems we rave about our youngsters all the time. were hording money ,taking old players,we could of held onto yacob , we have old players , brunt morrison etc what we need is to send a message to our decent younger players and in january splash some cash for a promotion push ,let them know were serious about going back up and persuade them to stop with us. i think in the next year youl see the club up for sale again as a team with promise pushing for promotion, but not quite good enough for promotion lui will look to get his money back . its lack of ambition lack of knowing the football club ,lack of knowing how to run a club .look at our neighbours, theyve gone forward weve slid back.

    it might not be moore whos deciding what we get, apparently its the upper admin whos saying what we spend, who we get etc . dont jump over moore ,hes alot to learn this year, and yes he will be the fall guy if we dont end up in the top six at least. our owner needs to sell to a FOOTBALL group before we do a birmingham or sunderland and end up like before megson . we could be in this league along time ,be prepared for more than a year or two .

    well now my thoughts have come true when we sign a 35 year old from the mls on a free ,yes short term but is there nothing better out there, omg this is ridiculous we let our veterans go wetalk about the youngsters at the club and yet we go and sign mears a no body on a free and 35 at that. i know financialy were in a mess but come on we cant spend 6,7 million on a decent full back. we had the 100 million to clear our debts plus the parachute payment and we cant afford to buy a decent full back. i remember jenkins interview when he returned were 40million in the hole, if this is what we can expect ,were going to be in this league a long time. sad so sad were in this mess

    just a thought ,look at wolves owners ,willing to spend money on proven players ,know if you want to stay up and get better you have to be prepared to pay. villa it seems are now doing that under there new management , what are we doing , one in , one out , no big buys as such, but if they owners dont know it ,you need not just good but proven leadership in the championship. we havent bought that ,and seems we are happy to keep majority of our team that were relegated. in the past we had megson who got us back up then matteo who got us promoted with a proven group of players. we dont really have that at the moment ,some past the sell by date , midfield again lacking creativity , players who are not comfortable like hegazi in this league. we should of discarded , bought players who know how to get out of this league. our owners tho by the look of it want to do it on the cheap, yet again. maybe the problem is the OWNERS not the manager.

    it amazes me we beat tunisia , panama and sweden all of a sudden were world beaters.to be honest i wasnt impressed with any of the performances ecept the first half against croatia. we still lack a midfield general ,creative midfielder, and im sorry when we needed our goalscorers they werent there.were an average team, we play spain and croatia again in the new national cup tourny in sept, whats the betting we end up bottom and get relegated to the b seeds. we play each team twice so 4 games between sept and may i believe. just wandering what the excuses will be when we dont qualify for the semis, only top team from 4 groups go on to semis.

    theres no lyalty anymore, they dont think there responsible for albion being relegated, if theyd played last 10 games like last six we would still be in the premier but they the players wanted pardew out, but being relegated wasnt there fault oh no. they shouldnt be penalised by having wages halved. they dont want to play 46 games plus. ill give rodriguez his due he hasnt asked for a move, morrison is fighting for a contract, gibbs seems happy to stay. theres some players who do have loyalty brunt included but most no its all about the money.

    they just said it opens june 6th, but just saw leicester spent 20 mill on a portuguese full back. so you could be right strange tho transfer season opening just before world cup when majority of wanted players are playing and focused on the world cup. not sure why they changed it if they did from july 1st. that date still makes sense with world cup over

    i heard and saw all the names banded about and wasnt excited by any to be honest. moore at leat has the backing support of the players.only time will tell, plus who we replace and what money hes given. chadl, evans krych sturridge def going . will we miss em ,no i dont think so. moores inexperience might show through with players he brings in to replace them ,or will he give the likes of kane, leko ,field finaly be given a chance to shine, plus theres a couple of others who made the bench at the end of the season. right now moores the man ill give him to jan ,ill be happy if were in the top six and challenging, if were mid table they being the board might decide to bring in someone else. lets see how it plays out . heres hoping he proves everyone right and gets us promoted , big dave can do it ,if anyone can boing boing

    hows this evans agent wants 4 million if leicester sign evans for 3 mill , i need to change jobs lol, now leicester ,west ham and newcastle want aghazi he has a 2,5 mill release clause, i hope we dont lose him. dawson is being touted at 8 million with chadli and rodrigues 12 mill possibility rodriguez returning to southampton chadli going to spain. makes interesting reading . i guess we will see on july 1st when the window opens. we could see a few players leaving. big daves going to have his work cutout. there was no pressure really end of season ,he did bring players together ,they played well ,but now its going tobe get us back up at first attempt or dare i say it theyl show him the door.

    finaly who ever made the decision its done its over. lets take our time scour the potential manages /coaches out there and bring in the right man. sad to say it might not of been all pardews fault but he was the wrong choice. im a much happier man today with darren in charge,.i agree lets throw some kids in see what they can do before they want to leave because of lack of opportunity!! the future can only be brighter for everyone connected to west brom . boing boing

    at least hes now said were as good as down and he recognises hes let the club down, his contract does not have a relegation clause unlike the players. one would hope heed play the good youngsters we have but somehow i doubt it.im not sure which players will be left at start of the season but im betting theres no money for transfers. we know evans , chadl ,sturridge, the pole, maybe livermore barry , mcauley will all be gone. depends if we want to sell others to raise money for transfers. were in a sad state of affairs.

    because pulis had lost the dressing room ,things wouldnt of changed under him, weed still be in relegation trouble, look at his signings all defensive midfielders ,he did get 2 great buys gibbs and hegazi but his other big wage earning stars , havent performed, his treatment of chadl , you cant win games with 8 defenders on the field no supply to our forward. if you cant see that your in cuckoo land. as for pardew i didnt want him ,was never a fan of his thought and said was not a good appointment. they panicked and look where we are. oh your right about sacking him in nov it should of been end of may last year.once again our board messed up. and now to boot even though we made 40 millin were actually in debt with no money to buy players according to jenkins , just pehaps why pardew will still be in charge in sept!!!11

    why would you be surprised its been well pubished in the media since last sept , if you followed what was going on youd of known most of the signings were on 60 to 70,000 aweek and the pole were covering his psg wages ya 100,000 plus. it wouldnt of happened under peace but you dont get decent players unless you pay big wages. theyve said all along no money to but players because our money goes on wages on our overpaid players. thats why they wont sack pardew theyll give him another year at least to get us up on a shoestring budget which wont happen. prepare for several years in the championship or worse league one,we can easily do a sunderland or a wolves. i said this months ago

    i agree with you , i still didnt understand taking of evans at 1-0 to us to replace him with phillips because it went 1-1 then of course the great free kick. it showed pardew has no clue, worst manager weve ever had, him and carver should of gone long time ago. i see them both being here in sept , i wont be watching thank god. so sad our demise lets hope its not another 16 year spell in the wilderness. let the supporters buy back the club!!1 at leat we know something about football. unlike the owner and clueless manager

    so what happened to the we will win at bournmouth, !!!!! i said several weeks ago enjoy the games to come, it wasnt a bad performance for 80 minutes, at the end of the day were a poor team ,probably worst in the premier , what did you expect? it was great to see yacob back in the team, i think he will go back to argentina tho to finish his career ,great servant to the club. lets look forward to barnsley and co next year, oh ya and PARDEW still as head coach. were down its not the end of the world ya we will struggle next year, but we might win more than 3 games i hope.

    just read about his clear the air meeting with the owners, can see my prediction coming true. its not negativity , its knowing the team isnt giving its all ,pardews lost the dressing room .players know theyl move on at the end of the season , we know it, but what will pardew do, will he get money to spend ,the odds are no , the board wont back him with big money buys , were back to reality with pardew in charhge were going no where, by xmas they might think about sacking him , but by then its to late,. were laughing stock of football. if you cant see that then theres something wrong.
    as im writing this im working on my resume to jenkins asking for pardews job. 10 nossa championships 10 NDA championships 6 offssa tournaments i can take west brom back up. hows that for being positive boing boing

    expect pardew to be still in charge come september, i just have the feeling he will talk them into keeping him on for a year to try bring em back up!!, more like take em down again,lai is only concerned about money ,hes not a football man ,hes not dare i say it a jeremy peace. . we have a owner whos not interested, he saw money signs mid table premier team safe , he wasnt expecting relegation, coach has lost the dressing room , clueless when it comes to tactics ,formations ,his best eleven , but he keeps his job because itll cost money to fire him. so expect him to still be here come sept and another relegation battle.
