West Bromwich Albion Message Board
I can't believe were getting grief off a boro fan. We batter you at your place. Yakubu falls over like a little girl, viduka is renowned for diving (And won't even be there next season) Your best player is someone elses centre half. Your second best player is a left winger who in my opinion is the worst left winger to play for England since Jason Wilcox, he can't cross and just has one trick (Mr Kevin Kilbane anyone) In-fact the only cross I can remember him doing which set up a goal is his RIGHT FOOTED one against us.
Your manager is a joke who if you wern't looking for the cheap option would NEVER have got the job.
In-fact the only thing you have going for you is your Chairmans the best in the premier league and your right winger sings a cracking tune. (What do you mean it's not THE James Morrison!!)
Your the third biggest team in The North East with players who are going at the end of the season (Viduka - Woodgate - Downing)
We will see you next year in our bi-annual relegation fight.

Third biggest team in the north East??
How many trophies have the other two won recently, and how many finals have they attended recently??
I work with a 49yr old Geordie, who has supported them man and boy, and NEVER seen them lift a trophy! I have a 9yr old son that was at the Millenium Stadium to see us lift a trophy, so as you measure success in recent glories(NOT 50yr old PLUS glories!!) WHO is the largest team???
On the other hand, id rather be classed by you as the 3rd team in the NE and be in the Prem league and FA cup than be the equal 3rd team(with Wolves!) in the West Midlands stuck in the championship and knocked out of the FA cup!!
Having been at the match, the tackle was no more than a yellow card, and if youre saying Parnaby nearly got his leg broke he made a remarkable recovery! Would have been interesting if it had happened the other way - doubt if the ref would have even given a foul, judging by the way he was refing. But I guess thats what you get as a Championship side with a prem side in town, all and I mean all the big descions going your way. Summed it up when Carter was booked for diving when hes through on the keeper (dont think he even claimed for a foul) while Viduka spends most of the match on his arse as soon as he feels Clem or Davies breathe on him. Riley even tells Vid to get up on at least 3 occasions and still doesnt book him! Nice to know the prem refs havent changed since we were relegated, (14 fouls by you lot and no cards, 11 by us 2 yellows and a red) and Im suspecting it will be the same if we go up.

If thats how you react to getting beat by a prem side, then i expect quite a few postings on this site next season if you go up!!
How can a 2 footed lunge (both feet in the air!!) making contact on a players standing leg be a YELLOW card?? I didnt see any Albion player arguing the red card with much enthusiasm, whilst Ellington didnt look surprised at the red either!!
As for Vid being on his arse, it was even better seeing him on his FRONT at the celebration slide when we won!!!
So much for it being an easy game for you at the Hawthorns lol
COME ON BORO..........
one rule for the premiership, one rule for the rest. viduka should have been booked on numerous occasions, their keeper should have walked for handling out the area (ref looking at linesman - whats goin on there ?) not having much luck with refs are we.
