    Pity as a win would have put us 3 points off a top 5 place instead of 3 off relegation

    Lol! losing to probably the 2 top teams in europe and leading them both up until the last few minutes, is a far cry from scraping a draw at home to the likes of Millwall.

    We thrashed last seasons easy Championship winners Norwich 5-1 in this league, so be aware of what promotion holds in store for you. Of course the Baggies will most likely bottle it again before season end like they did last year.

    Wow, bite and a half there Poundy, way too easy.

    How many injuries did Norwich have when you played them and didn’t they beat Man City?

    Stat time!

    No team in the top four tiers of English football has picked up more points away from home than WBA in 2019.


    We're level with Manchester City and Bristol City for points gained on the road this calendar year (36).

    Sometimes (but rarely) one feels a little sympathy for the opposition.
    This evening, we watched Spain v Malta, and as you might guess, being resident here for a long time, we do follow Spain.
    Our team won SEVEN Nil, which did somewhat reflect the number of top class players each side had.
    At about goal four, the Malta selector/manager got over excited, leapt to his feet and abruptly came to a vertical halt - head meeting roof of dugout.
    He collapsed, was helped back to his seat and then attended to frantically by the medical team who were there to repair the players.
    A visible cut across his bald bonce was being dabbed with something; at the same time ice was being applied to his neck which must have been jarred by the impact.
    Even at full time he was still dazed, so the Spanish manager went and bent down to console him not just on the lost game.
    Poor sod didn't seem to know what planet he was on.
    At least the cameras did not loiter to see him carried off to the dressing room.
    Dangerous game footie, eh?

    Word is filtering out from the office of our Sporting Director that among the players in the sights of Palace scouts to be squabbled over in the January window are Christian Kouame (21-Juventus), Alfredo (exciting forward but disciplinary nightmare) Morelos (23-Rangers) and ... wait for it ... Nathan Ferguson (19-Baggies).

    Whilst the first two are apparently in the £20-£25m bracket young Nathan has yet to sign a new contract and if he continues not to put pen to paper then he may need to be sold for a bargain basement price. What do you reckon he's worth Ian?

    My mistake, the lad Kouame is currently with Genoa not Juve ... and Football Italia are now reporting that he's suffered an anterior cruciate ligament tear ... so that deal ain't gonna happen for €25m + bonuses.

    Oh well ... back to the drawing board Dougie boy!

    Wow!! We all knew that Pochettino was under pressure and the team not performing but I certainly didn't see his sacking coming ...

    Presumably the Board has done it's homework, unlikely to have taken such a decision without.

    Please NO Mourinho ... NO NO NO ... to me that would be a serious backward step

    A nice berth for an out of work Mourinho in some people’s opinion (his) or....maybe they’ll poach John Terry.
    And then again maybe not.

    Already done and dusted, Jose Mourinho manager of Spurs. They must have been arranging everything before they even sacked him.
