    Same mate. Remember still going mad when we broke down the right then Defoe scored, could feel the floor vibrating. Then a couple days later it's was just a case of "when we beat Everton". Class.

    He was never ever going to come here with the owner we have at present and no cash to oil his ego with.

    Thinking about it makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up doesn't it!! Awesome day - and the beginning, we all thought, of a massive time for our club. A time when we could look forward to the next season! Then the FA shafted us and the rest, as they say, is history!!

    As long as the brown envelope is loaded per his requirement I doubt vey much he’ll actually give a toss whether they’re relegated or not.

    I think you’ll find that it was Allardyce that shafted us.

    He reckons he was a baggies fan in his youth :emoticon-0104-surpr
    " I used to come along and watch Jeff Astle, and Browny (Tony Brown). I did fluctuate between Wolves and West Brom."

    Don't get me wrong - when he left it never sat right with me. But the FA had ample opportunity to get him before he got to SAFC and they ignored him. They could've just kept ignoring him for me.

    First game didn't go too well. The only other time he's lost his first game in charge was when he arrived here!

    I think the automatic assumption he'll avoid relegation might be wrong this time.

    I don't think the team have enough and he doesn't look enthused.

    WTF <laugh>

    I often see the phrase 'football's gone mad' ...

    ... but this is beyond belief.

    Sam Allardyce is worried about his health and thinks there should be an immediate break in the season because of the pandemic ...

    ... is he just having a laugh or do West Brom have lots of players on the injury list.

    He took the job at the height of the pandemic when the country is in virtual lock down!

    "I am 66 years old and the last thing I want to do is catch Covid."


    Well stay at home you prat.

    Smacks of buying time to get players in and working with them on the training ground before they have to play again. He never made any mention of it three days again when taking the plaudits for a point at Liverpool. I think he knows he's maybe bitten off more than he can chew this time.
