Grant back in football with West Brom

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray has appointed former City manager Peter Grant as first team coach at the Hawthorns. I remember seeing reports linking him with that job as soon as a week after he left Carrow Road, but I guess that after ten months out of the game he clearly feels the time is […]

Phillips to leave West Brom for Birmingham, and Cole to Forest?

The Birmingham Express & Star are reporting that Kevin Phillips is on the verge of leaving West Bromwich Albion for cross-city rivals Birmingham City: Despite Phillips’ tremendous input last season, manager Tony Mowbray was not expecting the veteran striker to complete anything like the same workload in the Premiership, especially after his amazing recovery from […]

West Brom defender Martin Albrechtsen has agreed to sign for Derby County, according to BBC Radio Derby. It was thought that the 28-year old Danish international was on Glenn Roeder’s list of targets for the coming season, but he has seemingly decided that his future lies in the sunny chimes of Derby. Rams boss Paul […]

Daily Mail now claim West Brom are in for Ameobi

Last night the Daily Mail reported that West Brom have moved into pole-position to sign Shola Ameobi from Newcastle: West Brom have made a late approach for Shola Ameobi. The Newcastle forward still favours joining a club in the Premier League, despite Norwich City’s interest, and Tony Mowbray has the £3.5m to land the 26-year-old. […]

2007/08 Review: April/May – featuring Burnley, Ipswich, West Brom, QPR and Sheffield Wednesday

A morale-boosting 2-0 win over Burnley at Carrow Road was the best possible start in a crucial month. Dion Dublin opened the scoring after 2 minutes and countless finger nails were no doubt devoured before Ched Evans sealed the win in the 90th minute. Next up was the East Anglian Derby at Portman Road. Evans […]

The Week in Review: 28th April – 4th May 2008

Monday 28th April 2008. On Monday I explained why all Canaries should have cheered on Southampton against West Brom, and had a final go on the BBC Predictor to make a few predictions. Tuesday 29th April 2008. On Tuesday I made a couple of (correct for once) predictions on the Champions League semi-finals and kicked […]

Incredible day in the Championship: Congratulations West Brom and Stoke, ta-ra Leicester

Today was a pretty exciting day in the Championship, even if the game at Hillsborough turned into a nightmare for us Canaries. Well done West Brom on winning the title; I’d say they were definitely the best team in the division so it’s well deserved. Well done Stoke as well. I’ve not been particularly kind […]

West Brom v Southampton – and why all Canaries should be cheering on the Saints tonight

Until 5pm on Saturday afternoon I was pretty desperate for Southampton to get a thorough stuffing tonight at the Hawthorns against West Bromwich Albion. With their wretched goal difference a defeat for the Saints and a draw for the Canaries against QPR would have made us pretty much safe. Now that the threat of relegation […]

Poll: Norwich v West Brom

The poll went pretty well the other day so I’ve decided to have another bash with a different site to see if it’s any better (sorry, I’m a Tester so I just have to tinker ). Poll: What will the Norwich versus West Brom result be? This poll is now closed. You can view the […]

FA Cup Quarter Final draw

The draw for this season’s FA Cup Quarter Finals take place shortly. I hope, nay pray that Manchester United and Chelsea get drawn together. In fact, my ideal draw would probably be: Man Utd V Chelsea Middlesbrough or Sheffield United V West Brom Bristol Rovers V Portsmouth Barnsley V Cardiff Not ideal for Barnsley fans […]

FA Cup Fifth Round Predictions

It’s FA Cup time again. The round matches take place this weekend, so as per the norm let’s make a few predictions… Bristol Rovers vs. Southampton (Live on BBC1 from 12:10 on Saturday): The game most likely to provide an upset (hence it being televised), I don’t think we will see any surprises. My prediction: […]

Pointless & annoying football chants #3: Boing Boing

Welcome to the third edition of the catchy-titled series “Pointless and annoying football chants”. In this part we turn our attention to the utterly daft “boing boing” practiced by West Bromwich Albion supporters when their team scores a goal. According to the West Brom Wikipedia page (the font of all knowledge) it dates back to […]

FA Cup Fourth Round Predictions

If you’ve been reading this blog for longer than a couple of weeks you’ll know that I love the FA Cup, and with this weekend being Fourth Round weekend I thought I’d turn my attention to that and make a few predictions – hopefully I’ll be more successful than I was last time: Arsenal V […]
