West Bromwich Albion v Everton FC
The Hawthorns
Monday 20th January 20:00
Premier League match 22


West Brom's last 5 domestic results:

Tottenham 1-1 West Brom(Olsson)
West ham 3-3 West Brom (Anelka x2, Berahino)
West Brom 1-0 Newcastle (Berahino Pen)
West Brom 0-2 Crystal Palace - FA Cup
Southampton 1-0 West Brom

Everton's last 5 domestic results:

Everton 0-1 Sunderland
Everton 2-1 Southampton(Coleman, Lukaku)
Stoke 1-1 Everton (Baines Pen)
Everton 4-0 QPR - FA Cup (Barkley, Jelavic x2, Coleman)
Everton 2-0 Norwich (Barry, Mirallas)

West Bromwich Albion

This match is set to be Pepe Mel's first match as the new manager of West Bromwich Albion over a month after Steve Clarke parted ways with the club following a run of 4 straight defeats and an abysmal 2013. Since the Scotsman's departure West Brom have taken 6 points from a possible 15 in the league only losing to Southampton at the weekend in those 5 games. West Brom also were knocked out of the FA Cup at home to fellow Premier League relegation candidates Crystal Palace. West Brom are currently 3 points above the drop-zone in 14th place.

West Brom's top scorer Saido Berahino has scored 3 of his 4 goals from the bench this season. The England Under 21 player has scored more goals from the bench than any other player and has recently forced himself into the starting line up under caretaker Keith Downing. Fellow striker Matej Vydra who was the championship's top scorer last season with Watford has also made an impact from the bench.

Possible Line-Ups

(http://i.picresize.com/images/2014/01/13/ERQ8t.png) (http://i.picresize.com/images/2014/01/13/OAnwx.png)

Everton

Everton extended their unbeaten run to 4 games in all competitions following their blip against Sunderland at home on boxing day. Everton have taken 21 points from their last ten games dropping 2 points to Stoke, Liverpool and Arsenal and 3 points to Sunderland. Only Chelsea (25) and Manchester City (28) have achieved more points in the same space of time.

Everton are holding their own amongst competitors this season. Albeit having played less games than most other top half teams, they have taken the third most amount of points and are 3 points behind Chelsea in this mini league having played two games fewer. Trips to Liverpool and Tottenham are next in line for Everton in terms of playing teams in the top half.

Stats and Injuries

(http://i.imgur.com/FGtUMLq.png)

There are no definite casualties for West Brom going into this game as Victor Anichebe and Goran Popov are both set to return in this match whilst Billy Jones and Stephane Sessegnon could also be fit in time. Everton will definitely be without long term injuries Darron Gibson and Arouna Kone whilst Ross Barkley is set to miss out with suspected broken toe. This could be a game too early for Gerard Deulofeu whilst Sylvain Distin could return.

Hopefully Lukaku has his scoring boots on

1-0 either way

Tough game, just like any other away game in the premiership. As long as Paul Sharner is safely back in Austria and doesn't magically appear on the bench I'm going for us to sneak this but will be a tough game. Lukaku and a McGeady with a debut winner, 2-1.

Title: Re: West Brom v Everton
Post by: Bluedylan on January 15, 2014, 07:45:12 PM
Just been trying to find out a bit about Mel, and how his teams play. He seemed to favour a 4-2-3-1 (shock horror) at Betis, possession football and fast wingers. West Brom are pretty much set up for a 4-2-3-1 anyway with Mulumbu and Yacob holding in the middle, so it's probably not a big change for them.

As Ram says, this is going to be tricky. His first game, and he's had 9 days to work with their players on the training ground, and to watch DVDs of our games, so you'd imagine they'd be well prepared. Would bite your hand off for a scrappy 1-0, and move on to the next game.

At least with him having spent that time managing Spanish teams, Martonez will probably know everything about him.

Title: Re: West Brom v Everton
Post by: Audrey Horne on January 15, 2014, 08:31:02 PM
2-1 win here I think. Too strong for them and I think they will try and play instead of parking the bus, which will work in our favour, with gaps forming etc.

Apparently Mel only got sacked because Betis "Weren't doing as well as last season" which seems like classic premier league chairman logic, they got promoted and finished 17th sold some of their best players then were down in 17th.

Only sold Benat didn't they? If you go from 7th to propping up the league you really need to look at the manager.

Can't see Berahino, Anelka or Vic chasing like Long does. Gives us more time and space to dominate the game bringing it out from the back.

Definitely looking for a solid win to provide some momentum going into the derby.

Yeah I agree a fully fit Vic is brilliant at hassling defenses and chasing down everything. Definitely not dismissing him at all, I'm still gutted that he doesn't wear royal blue regardless of his limitations.

However I was more making reference to him coming back from injury, our passing game would have to be one of the toughest for opposition strikers in terms of distance covered.
Title: Re: West Brom v Everton
Post by: Shogun on January 16, 2014, 05:52:36 PM
He's probably third in their pecking order for strikers at the moment and that's because Long is off and Anelka is being kept out the headlines.

Berahino will probably start and Vydra will be ahead of Vic.
Title: Re: West Brom v Everton
Post by: Ross on January 16, 2014, 06:07:17 PM
Which ever forwards play their energy levels will be raised, they've got a new boss to impress and a game in front of the cameras.

Also from our own perspective we will probably have the added pressure of having slipped down the league and lost some ground on the teams above us over the weekend, due to the kickoff. It's not going to be an easy game this and anything but our best won't be good enough.
Title: Re: West Brom v Everton
Post by: GLewis on January 16, 2014, 07:50:47 PM
It'll be an interesting match.

As you say we "could" be facing some pressure due to playing last over the weekend.

Also most of the other teams seem to be seeing off the weaker teams with relative ease at the moment. We've slipped up vs S'land and vs Stoke recently.

We can't keep doing that.

I had a meeting with a guy today, who is friendly with the Albion keeper Boaz Myhill.

He said that in the first training session that Pepe Mel took, the players didn't have a clue what he wanted them to do. He kept saying 'tippy tappy' and the players kept looking around going 'whuuuu?'

So therefore, we're gonna win.

Feeling a tad more relaxed about this one now as it has the added incentive of going into the derby ahead of the shite.

But we need to have that mentality that its a game we SHOULD be winning anyway. Its one you have to expect to win although new manager syndrome usually gets the  best of Everton

Looking forward to the role mcgeady will play.

This game could actually be quite pivotal for us. Without the Chelsea v Man U result, it already appears that there are a number of clubs that are in the race for Europe, with Spurs now very much back in the hunt. If Man U have a run of good results then we could be in danger of slipping away. We need 3 points tomorrow.

Three points tomorrow, three at the Shite, even the English media will have to acknowledge our CL credentials.

It's too bad Manure and the Shite can't each miss European football entirely, but I would enjoy the Schadenfreude of both being reduced to fighting over the last Europa slot.

I love Lukaku, even though he's now killed the Beast/Predator meme.  Even when he gets tired and/or has a rough patch, I see the silver lining of maybe signing him to a permanent deal.  Can't shake the feeling that this man is gonna be really, really special.  Sooner rather than later.

Well on the interview with McGeady on SSN this morning he said he thinks he's 2-3 weeks away from being ready (which I've taken to mean starting).

Would have thought Naismith in and Mirallas on the left would be the more likely choice.

In Roberto's press conference he said that he doesn't expect him to complete 90 minutes but he is available. So if he does start, I imagine that he won't last long after half time. Though if Pienaar is good to play, then he'll probably come on for 20 minutes or so.

Best situation for McGeady given his current level of fitness would be to come on against tiring players. IF Pienaar is out I'd probably utilise Naismith and bring McGeady on for 30 mins or so.

Could use Oviedo but he's not really impressed me when used as an out an out LW, it doesn't play to his strengths.

Hmm, he likes running at defenders with the ball(thus drawing the foul) ,getting to the bye line to get crosses in to the 6 yard box and also likes cutting inside to shoot with his right foot.......

I reckon thats quite a decent set of attibutes for a LW.

Yes he doesnt link with Baines like pienaar does but few players could.

Hes a better option than Naismith IMO.

I think he's better running into space that the player in front has created rather than trying to take on defenders from a standing start. Also his crossing isn't all that, but then again neither is Naismith's.

To be honest, I don't particularly have a strong preference if Pienaar is out.

Hes a better option than Naismith IMO.

When he played there the other week he was really poor with his back to goal trying receive a pass to feet. When it went in to him he lost it, he didn't take up the right positions to receive the pass, and Baines ended up having to try a harder pass to someone who could take the ball. These are things people like pienaar really stand out but even Naismith is ok at it, Oviedo just didn't look comfortable in the role. His only good bit of play was being played into the corner and put in a good cross. He is a full back, not a wide midfielder you would look to play there.

Naismith isn't great by any stretch, but at least he is used to playing an attacking role, takes up good positions in the box and would allow mirallas to play left wing which is his better position in my opinion.

I'd start that and bring mcgeady on for Naismith last 30 mins or whatever he can handle.

I've got to admit, I've always been a big fan of osman throughout his career, his close control is world class. If he had a foreign name and was from spain we could have got about 20mil for him a few seasons ago. But he was always slow, and age is getting the better of him aswell, sometimes you need to accept that players arent what they once was i.e gerrard. Age is getting the better of him in my opinion and he's only a 45minute player for me now

With them playing two up top and going for a fairly attacking line-up, we should be able to boss the midfield pretty comfortably with McCarthy, Barry, and Osman. Hopefully lots of early possession leads to a goal in the first 20 minutes or so, as that would allow us to settle in pretty comfortably, pass the ball around, and probe for more.

I'm feeling very confident we can control this game in the middle, and that Oviedo will do just fine.

Would have preferred Osman on the left and Naismith off Lukaku, Baines needs somebody in front of him who is willing to cut inside.

Gary's straying into gobshite territory. You can freeze-frame any game you want, and pick out a variety of formations. It doesn't mean how that's how a team were shaped for the majority of the game. There's no way Bayern played a 4-4-2 in that game.

Not sure how people can slag Osman off. He has given the ball away once that I can remember from a header. Been excellent.

I think it's his consistency. He's been really strong on the ball today but that's not always the case. He's having a very good game though.

At least twice which I agree is not a lot. But both times its been when the team has been going forward so it has been in really dangerous positions. Both times has resulted in counter attacks...

 A player with his experience shouldn't do that!

Scrappy half but we knew it would be difficult with their players being stronger to impress the new manager. We coped well and kept calm and scored against the run of play. Great team we have, even with a few players light. Looking forward to seeing McGeady, need another goal for sure and i expect the game to be similar until we get a second and kill them off.

Ok, it was twice. And at times it can be in dangerous positions. I'm not Ossie's biggest fan, but he's the one who has instantly controlled the ball numerous times, taken a second and found a man, when Lukaku and Mirallas couldn't.

Distin had been chipping the ball in that area all half and Lukaku this time decided to head it in behind the defence because of a great run from Mirallas. Good goal but hopefully we can keep it on the ground a bit more and play around their defence like we were attempting in the first 15 minutes.

Not a great half of football, but when you're playing football against illustrious names like Brunt, Ridgewell and Reid it's not going to be the prettiest affair. Good goal, Lukaku finally winning a header and it leads to a goal, decent goal from Mirallas who I thought was having another fairly frustrating game up until then.

The only slight concern is they're getting a bit of joy down our right hand side though without actually creating much. It must be the most left footers we've had in the team for long time as well, five I counted.

It looke like the team didnt manage to respond to the different rythm of matches. From many matches to suddenly having a week off made all of them sloppy, lacking concentration and mentaly just not beeing up for it.

WBA have more possesion than us and we have (I think) for the first time this season less than 80 percent pass completion. That just confirms the lack of concentration the players had today.

Massively disappointed by the performance and we just have to admit that injuries is starting to weaken us. Still possible with a 4th place.

Coleman going off injured is a massive blow. I'll guess at atleast 3 weeks with hamstring.

But....let's move on now. Poor performances have been few and far between this season and when you look at our injury list at the moment you can't expect us to be at our best. No point dwelling on it.

I just hope we get some of our injuries back. Worried about Coleman.

Probably the worst bit about tonight, hope its not too serious but think he will miss the derby as he started holding it and carried on for a further 10 mins - should have been right off as a precaution imo.

Terrible performance all around. Baines has been awful since he walked back into the team after his injury whilst Mirallas has been hit and miss for a while and the less I say about Lukaku the better.  His first touch is woeful anyway but the fact that his reaction time is that of someone who has had about 6 pints and he runs like he's in quick sand is worrying. It was his poor control and loss of the ball that led to the equaliser.

We were poor and we are suffering something of an injury crisis now. Hopefully Deulofeu and Pienaar will be ok for the Derby because God knows we need them. Pienaar proved as predicted to be a huge miss today.

I think it's clear Martinez needs to bring in more players this window to have any chance of us pushing us on now.

Players looked a bit tired today. Badly missed Pienaar today. I personally don't think Lukaku was all that bad, he just didn't get any kind of service in the 2nd half.

They really shouldn't be tired considering they had about 9 days to prepare for the game and were training in Tenerife. The thing is, Lukaku is pretty much guaranteed to start every single game because there is no competition for his place unless this Traore fella is any good.

bad performance tonight

it looked a bit of a makeshift team at times, Osman on the left, Oviedo on the right, but still should have been good enough to beat West Brom as there was quality on the pitch

time after time Anichebe was allowed to back the ball 10 yards towards our goal, and Anelka was allowed too much freedom in the first half

a lack of fluidity up top which has so far been a big part of our play as well

but we didn't lose

Post by: sam of the south on January 21, 2014, 04:06:22 AM
We are so missing Barkley and Deulofeu.

Baines, Distin, Osman looking well off the pace too.

Think taking Oviedo away from left back when he was playing so well there, and Stones from the middle when he was looking comfortable there to reintegrate Baines and Distin was a mistake and sends out the wrong messages; If Moyes did it (which he did often) he would be getting lambasted for it.

Coleman out for the derby, along with other potent offensive weapons in Barkley and Deulofeu is such a massive sickener.
Title: Re: West Brom v Everton
Post by: wepull on January 21, 2014, 04:06:24 AM
Today Osman was poor, he lost the ball a lot of times(fell down to easily) and conceded possession far too easily to West Brom. This created a lot of unnecessary pressure on the team when we could have just eased down the tempo and played at our own normal pace.

A number of very poor performances.

Howard 5

Coleman 5

Jagielka 5

Distin 6

Baines 5

McCarthy 4

Barry 7

Osman 4 he was knackerd and should have been taken off 60mins

Oviedo 6

Mirallas 8

Lukaku 3

For me the signs were there at 60mins. Osman was very tired and Baines was left to cover him far too much.

Lukaku is offering absolutely nothing but the odd goal. His all round play is very poor and the goal was his fault. He gave the ball away far too cheaply which allowed West Brom put us under pressure directly after the corner.

The problem I have about tonight is we didn't go and kill the game off and everyone but the manager could see we needed fresh legs in for Osman.

Another fucking draw against a middle of the road club. Same with Moyes last year. It was a very very negative second half performance. Second to every ball.

Injuries are not confined to Everton, again, it is what it is and should not be blamed for anything.

What did annoy me most tonight however was the number of little floaty dinks and headers in the middle, we lost the ball in possession more tonight than I can remember for a long time.

When Baines miss controls a ball rolled to him - you just know it is not going to happen for you.

Martinez will have to play a near reserve team in the FA Cup. Some of this team are labouring and there is nothing available on the bench. The RS will murder us unless we raise our game far better than in this mixed display. OK in the first half and poor in the second. One point was fair overall. RM will have to work a miracle if this squad is to leave the transfer window stronger than before which was what he said he aimed to do. Several players needed subbing in the second half not just Osman.

I think in the 1st half most of the times when he got the ball was at half line and Mirallas was playing up ahead him. He wasn't great by any stretch of imagination but he wasn't as bad as many of you are making him out to be. Mirallas was playing more as a striker today as compared to Lukaku.

But with losing Coleman and looking how tired we look, i seriously think we are going to get a hiding. :'( there was no creativity and when we did create something it was Coleman and Mirallas pretty much.  Baines was again fucking shit, Lukaku is so lazy im in disbelief, and he is, he gets plenty of service, how can other players score and we usually end up with 20 shots if there is nothing going on in the box?? he doesnt jump for headers either which pisses me off no end.

Really think we need to steer ourselves away from these polar opposites of "No chance we're making top four!" and "Don't worry, we're still going to make the top four! It's all sunshine and rainbows!."

We played a shit game. If we keep playing like this we're not going to make top four. However, just because we played like this for a game doesn't mean we're going to keep doing it. We're missing two of our best players, we've got a new guy who could turn out to be brilliant (okay, I'm being really optimistic there), and there's still 11 days till the window closes. However, if this becomes a regular occurrence we can start to worry and I'll be inclined to agree with the negative crowd.

At this point, we need to realize that it could go either way and leave the end of season predictions made mid season to the idiots at the Daily Mail.

quality but inconsistent, how many players in our team do those words apply to? therein lies the problem. fifth may be our best position this season, lets hope the players find that missing ingredient eh.?

Norwich first game of the season when two flukes goals pinned us? And first game with a new manager and style of play?
Cardiff away, great save by the keeper and stonewall penalty turned down?
Sunderland at home, silly mistake, but I'm pretty sure we dominated.
The others, I'll give you but even WBA at home we were still getting used to the new style.

This is a forum, and if people are fucked off after one of our worst performances in the league in maybe a year, then they should be entitled to say it without being shouted down. You share the positive stuff with other blues, and sometimes you have to get the negative shit off your chest with them before you calm down and go again.

If people aren't allowed to say negative stuff after that piece of shit performance, when are they?

Rare off days. What like WBA (twice) Norwich Palace Cardiff Sunderland.?Not so rare

Why are you so negative always though mate?we all support the same team.  We've got injuries and since we got into our groove after the transfer window shut there have only been 3 off days out of 18, so I would say they are rare.

I'm not going to have a go at you because I know thats what you want

Overall we are playing better football than we have done for years.  Just tonight we didn't.  If we win the next game were back into 4th, chin up

Disappointment aside, we have to have a good look at that performance. Believe in the spirit of this squad that they will collectively acknowledge that wasn't good enough. That was a stroll. As good as we can be we're not barca and any win has to be grounded in hard work. We'll be ok, an away draw doesn't need a melt down but that does need some looking at and discussion as a team before the derby. I know we'll be better, without doubt.

Howard was at fault too. Should have kept the ball and calmed it down after a spell of pressure. If you look at Lukaku he doesn't have much of an option and was unlucky that a tackle that was meant to go out fell to a WBA player

Ahh because each and every goal conceded can be attributed to one isolated incident. Lukaku gave the ball away, McCarthy and Baines failed to stop the cross, Distin didn't beat Lugano to the header.

Seriously these Lukaku shouts are idiocy. TBH Sozz I though you would sympathise with him. He is to Everton what you are to this forum. It doesn't matter what he actually does, he gets criticised on spurious grounds. People's preconceptions cloud their judgement.

First half I thought we played some decent stuff, so I was surprised to see a few people saying it was below par on twitter at the interval. Second half we were poor, but they had Anichebe to thank for that. His hold up play, as so often the case over his last 18 months with us, gave them a platform to build on and we couldn't cope with his intensity at times.

We obviously didn't do enough in the end to win, which is disappointing after the weekend's other results, but we can't dwell on it too much, especially with the next two games coming up.

Its true its maybe even more annoying when people cant even express their disappointment or anger because others jump in with positives, which is good but its still annoying because people are made to feel stupid for being so angry.

But Sharp and maybe Sozzled, its constant and continuous even when we win!!!

Im over the game now i think, im pissed off, its ruined my week and i cant look at the table at the moment because of our position but i think im over it.

What i am frustrated with is the Coleman will probably miss the derby, as will Barkley, Deulofeu and maybe Pienaar. Our best players, our most creative and the ones who make us click. Now thats gutting and i dont think we have enough to beat the shite without them. Im frustrated with that because it always seems to happen in massive games! But what can you do?? shakeyheadman

There have been times where a point at West Brom would've been fine so stop shitting yourselves.
You all know what happens when a club appoints a new manager, don't you?

The team know that if they play like that at Anfield they'll get clobbered so they'll react.

An off day with a point is OK for now so try and look forward.

Even when they're not so good, I still see the sparks of brillance.

Somehow we have to get through February without too much damage, and then with at least 3 key players hopefully back fit by early March we could have a surge further up the table. If it goes belly up and we finish 7th, I wager a lot here would have taken that last August as a target for the new manager.  But having been so close to the promised land of top 4 which we still are, it would be really disappointing if we fell away given the excellent first half of the season.

it's totally out of character for this Everton side, but it was against a side who STILL couldn't beat us even when we play our worst

if we'd played like that at Old Trafford, we'd have been webbed.  Same if it happened at The Emirates.  If it happens at Anfield we might only get a draw as well.

But it won't.

For me, the disappointment comes from seeing that horrible football. I thought we might lose some games or draw some games from naivety and from overplaying it sometimes, but I didn't expect us to ever resort to that stuff, or to look that disjointed. Maybe that naïve of me to expect that. I just assumed whatever the situation, we'd be looking to pass the ball and control the game in almost every scenario, apart from the occasional defensive clearance when necessary.

When we're shit, as we were tonight, people have as much right to vent their frustrations as they do laud us when we play well.

We were shit but didn't get beat, whichever way you look at it, that's a positive!

However, our inability to turn draws into wins is ultimately what will cost us 4th place this year. I warrant any of the teams that finish in the top 4 this season will have less draws than we have already. To challenge at the top end of the table, the majority of draws have to be seen as '2 points dropped' rather than '1 point gained'.

Shit pitch = Shit result. Neither side could seem to hold the ball long. Thought we done alright first half and deserved to lead but second half we just seemed to slow down and switched off too many times. The goal was preventable, Lukaku just stopped in his tracks after losing the ball which led to the cross and goal. Point behind Spurs and the neighbours going into Derby day isn't such a bad place to be but we need to make sure we get all three at the pit a week tomorrow. Any word on Seamus yet?

No there's no set standard as such. Obviously a good home pitch would benefit your own team so it makes sense to maintain it to the best standard.

I remember Chelsea v Charlton at Stamford bridge 6-7 years ago and there was literally no grass on the pitch...it was just mud and sand with painted lines on!

Where you go wrong in my opinion is that you seem to dwell on the negatives too much and blow some of them out of proportion.

There's nobody that isn't disappointed on here tonight, I was gutted when the full time whistle went. I also love a good moan but you've got to accept that we won't always win games we should win or play the way we know we can. It's football, nobody wins every game they should.

I choose to focus on the positives after games like tonight to make myself feel better, otherwise I'll wake up pissed off. But it doesn't for one second mean I'm happy to take a point at west brom or any other shite team.

I can't go on twitter at the moment because of the negativity on there. Maybe when you dwell on them you have the same effect on NSNO posters? You've got to remember we all want everton to win every game. Some of us just accept it won't happen.

Did we lose. ? Bloody hell we got a draw not a bad result its not like west brom have been getting battered everyweek,

Again it does seem some players turn up thinking we where gonna win. However to be fair the team is a bit disjointed latetly with injures and we can't complain too much we have had some luck this season with results. ( ie place away we should deffo lost)  I just think since turn of the year our luck has ran out, hopefully get a few more players and make some more competition for places.

The only one thing I dissgree with bobby or most managers  is the way he brings players straight back in after injury l, I personally feel if a player comes in and performs well doesn't he desevere thd right to stay in the team  ?? But then again am not a manager lol

As for derby I'd take a point, would love I win but I just feel Liverpool attack is too strong and that is the main difference between us just imagine where we would be if we had an attack like that!!! Coyb

You gotta see you though, you get on people's tits, more than any other person on here. If it were me, I'd work on that. Like brownie says I don't like in fighting we all want the same thing right? Be a bit more gracious and people will respond in kind, post your view but just stop trying to go against the grain so hard as that's how it seems.

To be honest mate. You want to look at the posts I'm getting. I am a WUM and I do find it funny. But there's loads on here who are just feeding the bait, WUMming me. It's hard to posts anything serious. I get tooled for the simplest of posts. It's not even about what's been said it's personal from previous exchanges.

Well if you admit to being a wum what do you expect? You try to wind people up then get pissed when they bite? Ah fuck it. Off to bed.

Just read through the last 4 pages of this thread. I think I'm going to kill myself.

So you admit to being a WUM. That's fine then whatever floats your boat. But in my book that leaves you open to everything you get and are fair game for criticism.However, judging by the other other comments you make - about people seizing on the chance to have a go at you, looking for you in threads was another one, I would say that you can don't actually want to be a WUM. I think you are making a huge rod for yourself tbh.

I agree with Sozzled. It's got to the point where whatever he posts people just have a pop at him. If people stop antagonising him then maybe he'll stop being so antagonistic.

Tool yourselves silly.

Right lts get something sorted here, I am fucking sick of all the sniping and bitching at certain posters, if you dont agree then you dont agree, there is no call for giving abuse and calling people names or shit like that, it's becoming very fucking tedious.

heres an idea you have your views and others have theirs, heres what you do,


" i dont agree with that, this is what I think"


not and i mean NOT " shut up you soft cunt "

just because someone doesnt agree doesnt mean their view is not fucking valid.

i may start dishing warnings to the people who fire shots across the boughs to try and get a reaction, if there is a problem wit a poster and they are being a fucking troll then they will be dealt with , we have done a good enough job of it up to yet , i am sure we will carry that on.

in short try giving a bit of perspective and understand not everyone agrees with you,untill you can do that get the fuck over yourself .


i am sick of the Match threads getting ruined by the same fucking people saying the matchday thread has been ruined by the same fucking people

It was a match day thread befitting of the game, both a bit of a shambles. :)

Ah anyway onward and upward, where's that Stevenage thread...

Have to agree on this.  Really don't know why so many stopped performing second half. Would have been nice being 4th going into the Derby

I think we were shocked at how quickly WBA came out of the blocks. They brought Big Vic on earlier than expected as well. Momentum shift and it does affect you
