  • Hate to correct people, but us (The small people) do NOT own 60% of the club. Peace is the owner of a company that owns over 90% of the club, hence when they purchased over 90% they legally had to make an offer for all remaining shares. When this offer was received it had a letter attached off peace saying he did not want to buy the remaining 10%!!

    Jeremy Peace views this as a business venture (Much the same as souness does at the dingles), he wants to get us promoted on a shoestring before the money alters.

    I will never support a player who has never acknologed the crowd when he scores (Thats you Mr Ellington), remember phillips reaction after luton? Compare that with ellingtons after preston.

    • Ok if I'm wrong I'm wrong, I misquoted even then. The website I got my information from was http://www.baggies.com/shares/ and it says:
      "At the moment, just under half of the issued shares in WBA Holdings are held by the Chairman, Jeremy Peace, and a few per cent by the other Board members. The remainder are held mainly by supporters, some of whom invested during the Rights Issues that took place during the 1990s."

      The fact remains we want proactive investment into the clubs playing staff.
