1 up already.  Reach the final and they are likely to play a weakened side vs us. We may win our final game of the season. Trying to recall when we last did that?

  Pricing da yoof out of football

One of the key reasons why atmospheres in grounds are fucking dog shit these days. The 30 pound cap on away tickets is a decent start but I suspect it won't have the impact it needs to. The FA commissioned a study a few years ago into why England fans were almost exclusively middle-aged men and yet tickets for games at Wembley still go for 60 apiece and even friendlies are played on Thursday and Friday nights

Club have opened the voting. Between Gardner against Leicester and Saudi against Palace for me, leaning to Saudis as Sessegnons pass was one of the best I've seen live.

  The Premier League teams' ineptitude index 2015-16 - bad Pulis.

Uh oh.

Here's a stick to beat Pulis with that even I can't really argue with.

His tactics definitely put us in this position but obviously they also pretty much certainly guarantee safety.

Aston Villa 79
West Bromwich Albion 74
Norwich 70
Crystal Palace 67
Newcastle 63
Liverpool 61
Everton 58
Swansea City 57
Bournemouth 57
Tottenham Hotspur 51
Watford 50
Arsenal 47
Chelsea 42
West Ham 41
Stoke 36
Sunderland 36
Southampton 29
Leicester 28
Manchester City 24
Manchester United 10

Results



It’s hardly a surprise that Aston Villa, a side relegated midway through April, top the list. But Sunderland’s relatively competent performance this season (by these measures) means they should not be battling for survival in the relegation zone alongside the far more hapless Norwich and Newcastle.

Leicester were the fourth least competent side last year, and are now the third most competent which is just one turnaround from a remarkable season for them. West Bromwich Albion’s position near the top of the table is a surprise: Tony Pulis’s sides are not supposed to make mistakes; however their habit of playing out 0-0s, throwing the ball directly to the opposition and giving referees lip has cost them dear. So, on second thoughts, that sounds exactly like a Tony Pulis side. Crystal Palace, too, have been hurt by 0-0s, own goals and goalkeeping errors.



But, really, clubs such as Liverpool and Everton should be ashamed of themselves and must fear the talent scouts from Billy Smart’s Circus will soon be hovering. Chelsea can count themselves lucky not to be higher up the table given their disastrous season. Tottenham can only dream of what might have been: cut out the errors and perhaps they would still be in the title race.


Finally, though, the biggest surprise of all is right at the bottom of the table. How are Manchester United the least incompetent side in the league? It’s hard to see many in the Old Trafford stands agreeing (though a certain Dutchman might). But perhaps it does fit: after all it takes a special kind of ineptitude to make so few mistakes but still be bobbing about in fifth, struggling for Champions League qualification.

  Taking the West Bromwich out of Albion would it benefit us?
Posted by: spandaubaggie - 05-05-2016, 11:39 AM - Forum: WBAunofficial - Replies (72)

Arsenal are a great club who have had no need to define themselves by their geography and dare I say it Villa have hardly been geographically affiliated by the tiny suburb of Birmingham they are from. There are other examples to.
However, I wonder if the somewhat dour Black Country club thing that some use to define us is our undoing in the modern age?
Most of us have no affiliation to West Bromwich any more than Villa fans do Aston and by labelling ourselves with the name of what really is a crap town are we really doing ourselves a disservice?
After all we are on the edge of the 2nd biggest city in the UK and really is the West Bromwich thing hampering us as much as Oldham, Barnsley, Walsall, Wigan and equally uninspiring towns.
If we were to the media Albion FC in a similar way to Arsenal AFC I wonder what impact it would have had.
It is true though that generally when talking to Midlanders most of us call ourselves Albion fans, but when talking to people further away call ourselves West Brom fans.
Our identity certainty is something worth considering and maybe the club know that hence much more the emphasis on Albion in the logo in recent years.

We are the second most inept side in the league apparently. No prizes for guessing who's top.
