  Lack of faith in the club
Posted by: spandaubaggie - Yesterday, 11:27 AM - Forum: WBAunofficial - Replies (27)

Barring a wobble post Clarke we've had several seasons with very little threat of relegation. All this with a club without a huge supporter base.
However, currently we are by some distance the strongest W Mids club. I've never known this before and I've supported Albion 42 years.

Since the relatively golden era of my youth, we are the only ones to establish ourselves back in the top flight.

Wolves have had 3 seasons in the Prem, Blues one or two more, but none have really got anywhere near where we are now. Villa now are in a mess too.
It's all been done conservatively, without a big fanfare, and with humility.

Despite the fact that its clear by many using us as a model that we are one of the best run clubs in the country we have an element of fans who somehow think we will self-destruct due to woeful incompetence, based on little more than their own negativity.

We have a small squad, so anyone thinking we will get rid of top players without replacing them is arguably a bit deluded.

Everything from the club is shaping itself towards a transfer deadline, which will certainly see us make moves which will strengthen our squad.

I for one am more excited about this transfer window than I have been for a while. Albion continue to quietly evolve and I see nothing so far to make me think the good work done in recent years will be undone.

  Best group of away supporters
Posted by: Zoltanger - Yesterday, 04:40 AM - Forum: WBAunofficial - Replies (6)

Not the whole lot, just a group of randoms you've met on match day:

Outside the Vine. Minibus load of 20/30 something Sunderland fans who'd well and truly been on it all the way down for a 3 o'clock kick-off. Their group contained one of the best absolutely hammered but somehow just about functioning lads I've ever come across.

Premier League: Is time-wasting leaving fans short-changed?

One for the price of two? Burnley and West Brom fans saw little more than a single half of actual football on Saturday
A 90-minute match but only 47 minutes and 40 seconds of actual football.
That was the scenario for fans at Turf Moor on Saturday, as Burnley and West Brom played out a game in which the ball was in play for only 160 seconds more than it was out of play.
That figure is the lowest in the league so far this season.
And it is also four minutes and 53 seconds less football than was seen on average in 2016-17 at Crystal Palace, the club whose fans saw less actual action (52 minutes and 33 seconds) than any other team.
This figure comes two months after football's lawmakers revealed they were considering scrapping 45-minute halves, instead introducing two periods of 30 minutes, during which the clock would be stopped every time the ball went out of play.
The proposal, the International Football Association Board said, was one of a number of options to deter football's "negativities" - essentially it is a way of clamping down on time-wasting.
The idea prompted plenty of debate. Gianfranco Zola said the change would be "a good one", while fellow former Chelsea player Pat Nevin added: "When they suggest an hour of playing time, they have obviously got it right.
"People might initially think: 'Only an hour?' But, in actual fact, it is exactly the amount of time that I would expect the ball to be in play anyway."
So would the rule have benefitted supporters at Premier League matches so far this season? In a word, yes.
Of 19 top-flight games across the opening two weekends of the campaign, the ball has been in play for more than an hour in only two of them.
And no game has featured more than 61 minutes of play.

Food for thought for fans and lawmakers alike.
