    Dowling - Your A T wat!

    So the friendly in Benidorm on Saturday has been moved due to a reggae concert and West Brom advised admission was free and still advised admission was free whilst searching for a new venue.

    Dowling now profusely apologizes that there is now an admission fee and its outside the clubs control. Its the principle at stake - only 5 Euros so approx 400 Albion will be there so that's 2000 Euros. Our club should be ashamed as why could Dowling not send this new ground the pittance of around 2000 Euros? The knob has offered to give all supporters a £5 gift voucher in the club shop where the mark up is staggering. W ankers!

    Last year we had two poor managers - DM and a Rookie but a decent squad. This year we have a decent manager and a decimated squad. Should somebody send Dowling a picture as clearly he does not get it!!!!

    Truth probably is - Darren Moore is on no lesser money than he was at West Brom at Doncaster as two cheap options ( DM and the Rookie ) cost us big time.

    Slav is like a good builder with s hit tools! The only tools are Lai, Jenkins and Dowling who can go f uck themselves!

    Fortunately, not stuck 68 as off to sunny faraway shores next week. It's the principle mate, and if anyone is stuck, it's our beloved football club.

    Principle again - will I bother to travel home and away almost every match this coming season like the last season? When Lai is asset stripping the club, again it could be principle that stops me putting my cash in this filthy little yellow mans pocket.

    To watch a local non league match or our star strikers HRK or Burke? Could be local non league which is more of a community feel unless things change.

    When we weren't good enough for promotion last year - why would we be this year with all those who have departed?

    When Slav finds it tough going lets hope for once - just foookin once - West Brom fans wake up and demand that Lai, Jenkins and Dowling go f uck themselves. Will that happen - not a chance!!!! Nobody ever points the finger at the Board or Ownership apart from the few who really know what's happening to our once fantastic club!

    Can’t agree with your last comment Baggieal.

    Many of us on here totally lay the blame upon the Board, the owner and the recruitment team. These are now in this modern money football world the most critical aspect of any club, be they top 6 in the PL or struggling towards the bottom of League 2. Unfortunately for us this is where we have become increasingly poor and I don’t know where the light is at the end of the tunnel.

    The only encouraging sign that I have seen has been the appointment of Slaven Bilic but to be honest I can’t see him sticking around that long unless everything above him changes and I for one wouldn’t blame him.

    Albion have apologised, saying that it behind their control. They have offered a good will gesture said if you keep your ticket you exchange it for a £5 voucher. Albion went to great lengths to keep the match. Don't see what more they could have done.

    Club could have said to the venue to invoice the club for the Albion fans. They know there will be about 400 so thatís around 2000 euros. Peanuts you may say for the supporters but if peanuts then what is 2000 euros to Lai - 1 minutes work?

    In terms of many supporters blaming the Board/Ownership - I donít agree Yarm. How many stood up with the shocking appointment of Shan ( no disrespect to him ) but if you sack a manager then have someone better lined up!!!

    In terms of DM - I bet he took the job at West Brom as first managerial role and the club he loved - quite simply he was the cheap cheap option! I bet heís not taken a pay drop at Doncaster!!!

    So with all the player departures and no arrivals - whereís the discontent aimed at the Board? Pity I could not go to Benidorm as almost did - I would have taken a huge anti Lai and Board banner! Hope we start seeing an uprising as Lai is simply wrecking our club and asset stripping!! Trust me said Dowling - I would rather trust ISIS!

    Perhaps HRK and Burke will score all those goals from Gayle, Jay Rod and Barnes!!!

    Below is the post I put on here several months ago. Admittedly it is not an irate posting because I do not do irate! However I have always been clear that I fully blame the people above the Manager/coach and have held this belief for sometime.

    Original post

    I still wonder if it is this whole thing around head coach as against Manager. The likes of Shan and Moore fit the head coach model because they arenít really experienced enough to be trusted with decisions regarding who we buy and who we sell. This gives the power to the likes of Dowling and Jenkins and the others representing Mr Lai.

    The Managers for want of a better word, the likes of Hughton, Pulis, Pardew, Pearson, Jankovic, Bilic et al want a big say in the transfers both ways. At the moment in my view the squad needs a big overhaul and who is best placed to do that, Dowling, Jenkins and the money men or a senior Manager, with the final say with the Jenkins.

    As I have no confidence in the powers that be in the club I would rather we brought in someone experienced who could do the squad overhaul rather than go with a head coach. The problem is the Manager type will cost more and there we have the problem. The head coach is cheaper option and still keeps complete control in the hands of the likes of Dowling and Jenkins.

    I totally agree with your comments Al concerning the board and our recruitment team. Jenkins is here to cut and manage cost as his top priority based on what I hear from someone who works there. IMO I think the vast majority on here haven't been happy with the Lai regime and the overall level of incompetent decision making we've endured.

    My take on Shan was that he didn't ask for the job and couldn't really refuse it when offered. I think that given his previous experience which was non-existent at that level, he did a good job. Was he the right choice? No but I don't blame him and feel it's a shame the clubs lost a decent youth coach. The reason I wasn't jumping up and down to get Shan out was that I couldn't see any decent option joining us in a full time capacity whilst our promotion status and next years budget were up in the air. I'm amazed we've got Bilic but can't see him sticking around if he isn't given the tools he was presumably promised as it does look as if our recruitment will be light given the outgoings we've already seen. Can't see Gibbs either staying but time will tell.

    Totally agree Stripes! Bilic must be kicking himself with Newcastle job up for grabs as for sure Newcastle supporters would have wanted him over Bruce.

    Donít get why Bilic came to West Brom to be honest! Best chance of going up was last season and we blew it with two bad managerial appointments based on the cheap option.

    So with have a better more experienced manager this season but no decent players. You could not make it up for f uck sake.

    Lai out!! Then again he will bleed the club dry before this happens as heís got zero passion!!

    There’s really no point in slagging off Dowling, he’s just doing what he’s paid to do and as for Jenkins, well, he’s clearly Lai’s hatchet man but again, doing what he’s paid to do. It is the chinaman, though, who we really ought to be having a go at; how long before a serious campaign starts up to ‘encourage’ the runt to sod off out of our club? Success for us this season, I’m afraid, will be survival in this league. Also, I don’t buy the idea that Lai is unable to ‘invest’ any more money in the club, I’m sure that if he really wanted to, he would find a way of financing the strengthening of the team. At the moment there is but one problem at The Albion, Lai!

    LAI OUT

    Al in trying times you always make me laugh mate.

    Imagine if we did trust Isis with our transfer policy they'd be practicing before kick off with HRK's head as a warning to others to shape up or "head off" to pastures new.

    When one of our youth players does the dirty on us they sent to their new club with their best wishes and a suicide vest on.

    Foook knows what would happen to wba women's team tripping over their burkhas when in on goal rondon'tesque.

    Who knows they may even chop the hands off the thieving c??? Peace.

    * Baggieblood is not advocating that Isis do take charge of transfer policy, for the time being anyway. Although he does think Dowling is a useless bag of shi t who should concentrate on recruitment instead of alienating a team, who may have taken him for a few million, whose only mistake was realising how c rap Burke is.
