Get Albion squad sorted soon, Gareth McAuley urges

Gareth McAuley today urged Albion to finalise their squad for the start of pre-season training as the head coach hunt prepared to enter its fourth week.

Gareth McAuley lifts the lid on Albion's season

The Baggies hope to make headway in the next few days in the search for Pepe Mel’s successor as concerns grow behind the scenes that further delays could see them miss out on their top transfer targets.

McAuley is keen for the club to do their transfer business early to avoid a repeat of last season, when they never recovered from a poor start and avoided relegation by just three points.

“There is a lot of work to go on and a lot of things to get right in the summer,” said McAuley.

“We need to get the new players in and, when we go away for pre-season, that’s the best time for everyone to be in because you’re working on stuff.

“If you do it just before the start of the new season, new faces pop up and they don’t know what you’ve been working on for the previous five or six weeks and it’s difficult for them to get going.

“Hopefully we can get things sorted as early as possible and not have a season like this again.”

“We need to make sure the players that are coming back for pre-season are coming back ready to have a good season and get off to a good start because last year we didn’t have a good start and never really got going.”

Behind the scenes, there are concerns among staff that the absence of a head coach could see the club lose ground in the race for signings.

But they hope to move towards the interview phase next week with key personnel due back from holiday.

No way ! Somebody connected to Albion having a moan, a groan and a little whinge.....unbelievable, that's not like you lot at all.

Change your name to Peter Pan and 'cal' your husband Candy Floss??

Exactly what've you been sniffing....???

now you say I'm a name-calling twit!!!

Seriously, why do they send thick idiots like you over here....???

( I'm sure somebody will help you understand the question...... )

If you cant take it don't dish it out,I no more want to come on your site than fly in tha air,in all honesty Idont give a toss about wba,the only reason I did was to give jth a bit back,hes never off our sight,making stupid comments,its called tit for tat.I find this so called banter childish.but its the human failing of getting the last word in we all do it,Roger and out.

wolves 4 ever

Blame your mucker,CR7 he told me you had informed him someone on the wolves site was taking his name in vain,look on the site for Stan Cullis.as for the other I wouldn't waste my time.

Quinton Baggie

well you moron it aint me so direct your comments elsewhere...like i say i only go on your pages to pay resepct to Wolves football legends who have passed away...i read with interest the report about wolves being the 3rd best football club...but I have not posted on it...so jog on sonny

Quinton Baggie

oh yes I read it on a Wolves page that one blogger said that CR78 and JTH were ringleaders and we all follow??? so it came from a Wolves fan...i am sure if you look you will find it.

Quinton Baggie

in future it best you keep your side of the fence then and i will keep mine

CantelloRocket 78

QB,

basically mate, I replied to '4 ever's unprovoked name calling and criticism's about me, and it looks like they closed the thread not longer afterwards, so he's decided to come over here playing his face instead-

I'm sorry if you've gotten involved, but there's around a half dozen of the 'nasty element' that need addressing by the mods, because this intimidation needs nipping in the bud, so that we can get back to decent discussions on here.

I think it's time to raise matters with those who're responsible for these sites.

Jack the Hat

4 ever,

..... jth a bit back,hes never off our sight, ....

... and what sight would that be. L☺Ls.

If you have come on here to have a go at me why are you having a go at other BAGGIES. Banter is childish is it?, then why are you on here with it?. You are squirming because Quinton has brought you to book, aren't you?. Now stop shaking and return to your own SITE.

BOING~~~~BOING~~~~J♣H.

One season of relative success and all of a sudden you think Wolves are the example we should look at. I am grateful that we don't bounce around like you lot do. We take stock, right wrongs and move forward. I can't wait til around december when you lot are calling for Jacketts head. "He's taken us as far as he can, he's only a league one manager, you've let us down again"

paulpip

You talking about the Albion Managers appointed after Woy. Those League one standard managers that almost got your team relegated. Mac is talking a lot of sense.

Cyril

Paulpip. Well you have experience of managers who fall through the same trap door twice. We haven't. Oh, and we didn't !

So just what is your point ?

Taking advice from a Wulfie about relegation is not advisable, now is it ?

Right wrongs? Roy Hodgson and Dan Ashworth to Pep Mel and Richard Garlick? Stripes to pinstripes? 8th to 17th???

AndyH

1877-

so when you were pulled up about your obsession of posting jealous jibes on the Baggies site at 3.00 a.m. in the mornings, you claimed you were 'working abroad' in a different 'time zone'-

yet I've noticed you post all hours of the day, and now 4.00 p.m. in the afternoon-

so do you stay awake and twiddle with yer PC 24 hours a day on this Fantasy Island you're apparently living on....???

Seriously - as for this bitter, jealous 'quest' of yours to 'make us suffer', it strikes me you're still full of anger, whilst I for one just loff me 'ead off at yer tripe-

you really do need to get a life, this is just plain embarrassing.......

ManInsider

Andyh, I take it you will be watching us in the world cup.

1877wolf

Fantasy Island?! When I'm not working, I read the internet, I suppose that you do the same or do you not work?

Bitter and jealous? You have Jack the t*** posting under several different names and you feel the need to mention Wolves in the majority of your posts? I don't like to keep making you look silly but you're your own worst enemy my pinstriped Brummie friend.

CantelloRocket 78

1877-

so why do I say you live on Fantasy Island?

Maybe because you post on here 24 hours a day, and claim it's because you're in a different time zone??

Maybe it's because Jack keeps telling you he only posts under his own name, but you keep insisting he's using many names - so how about telling us what these names are??

Or maybe because you keep coming over to the Baggies site throwing jibes at us, and claim it's us who're the problem, talking about wolves??

Maybe the reason I say you're 'bitter' is because you TOLD us that you 'suffered' from Albion fans for a couple of years, so you're gonna keep coming here trying to make us 'suffer' in return???

So you deny all this, blanking it out your mind - just living in your own little, deluded world of fantasy.......very, very sad indeed.......

I wouldn't tread that path if I were you.

Hi man in his bedroom...with his parents down stairs...

Hi mate,

a few months ago in Scotland the government were talking about reintroducing Wolves back into the wild to help cull the dear population in the highlands....key word is reintroducing as Wolves have been extinct in Britain for years...

And there's the racist in all his glory! You are disgusting and below contempt.

A disgrace to the club you say you support and to the great sport of football.

Crawl back into the sewer you came from. You represent everything that is offensive and sick in our society.

I would invite all decent Wolves fans reading this to tell this idiot exactly what you think of him. Perhaps, hearing it from real Wolves supporters will make him realise what a disgrace he brings to the good name of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club.

Ahhhh Saggy Bottom, my apologies if you're a little touchy but a racist I am not, in fact my old girls got a Scottish Terrier and I have Jock kippers and Irn Bru pretty often. What bothers me more is that it's people like you're good self that have turned this land of ours into a PC obsessed pen full of one eyed sheep and dithering jellyfish.

Btw, make sure the telly goes off at nine, there might be some terrible, terrible swearing or a woman in underwear.....oooohhhhhhhh I never....

On the other hand though, you could put a Bernard Manning DVD on ,get some grasp on reality and how quite a few English working class gentlemen think.

The comment from Jacket the Hat is unacceptable and down right wrong. I hope he does the decent thing and retracts it. And how come the moderator let it through??

Interesting point about the mods. Have you read some of Capehill's posts? Constantly calling people "James Hunts, Cnuts and Pillow biters" which are allowed to stand. Stafford bin dippers etc I can understand, just part of the banter like Smerrik skip rats but the rest? why do the mods leave it up and pull my one word reply ... "Neanderthal" ??? Moderators should be consistant if nothing else.

Jackett, you really a loathsome creature ! I'm going to tell you something and for once listen ! If I were going into battle, what I would like by my side would be a Regiment of Jocks. Mad buggers at times but I never met a Scottish coward ! Now you damn well apologise to Andyh.

And it will be a very sad day if they leave the Union. But at least they've got a vote to make a choice. WE have not as yet on the EU.

The View From Baggy Bottom

AndyH, Cyril,

Hi lads, how you doing?

I've had enough of these sick trolls on our threads and having thought long and hard I have decided that in future I will simply not respond to any of their posts. Whatever they post, they can only score points off us if we respond. I made the mistake of thinking that a sharp wit and a bit of banter might shut them up, but it just has the opposite effect.

If we ignore them completely they will eventually get bored. All we should concern ourselves with is WBA. Forget banter with even the freindly Wulfies, it's their trolls that are making that impossible at the moment.

Andy, the attack on you is unforgivable and Cyril, you are rightly outraged as am I. Racism in any form, directed at any individual is disgusting to me and to the vast majority of normal people, but assuming that the E&S are unable or unwilling to do anything about it we simply have to stop responding to the provocations of these sick individuals.

We should remember what's important to us and get back to discussing West Bromwich Albion.

Boing Boing!!

Cyril

Jackett the TW*T, I thought we'd finally disposed of you but no, the obsession with all things Albion is still there. What does your psychiatrist suggest ?

You do realise that unless the other Jackett isn't a TW*T you are going to be in some real trouble this coming season. We shall torture you !

Jackett the Hat

You got no chance of a psychiatrist these days Mr Randall, what with all them blokes jumping up and down shouting boing, boing in the waiting room and then screaming at the Quack that they've lost the thick stripes off they're shirts. I'm surprised they don't slip on all that dribble.

CantelloRocket 78

Cyril,

when it comes to treating 'Jackett', not sure what they'd deal with first-

childish anger? - when he has those stroppy little tantrums to himself on the wolves site about the Baggies-

Obsession? - after posting on here almost non-stop for 2 years, changing his name several times to try fooling the mods, and posting more than once at 3.00 a.m. in the morning-

Feelings of inadequacy? - when he cries to other wolves fans 'I've never seen us good enough to compete with the Big Boys, ( sniff, sniff )......'-

Delusion? - saying 'no way am I obsessed with Albion...', and comparing wolves players with Brazilian Internationals.....LOL!!!-

Excessive fear? - as a regular 'keyboard Koward', who hides in the shadows when confronted with things he doesn't like, and would never discuss these issues face-to-face, because he'd find himself with brown underpants within 2 minutes......

even the sensible Wolves fans who visit us want nothing to do with him, so he also has to deal with extreme loneliness-

all in all, a completely untreatable case......

Jackett the Hat

Many, many descriptions there Mr Corbett but it's liar that suits you sir.....plain, simple liar.

bob.williamsfindlay

Hey, Jackett the Hat, you ought to consider wearing a kilt. Might make you easier to comprehend.

CantelloRocket 78

Jackett-

as you well know, everything I said is true-

added to which, it now seems you not only compared Albion fans to a character on TV dying from a terminal illness, but you've added racist remarks to your ever growing 'catalogue of shame'-

simply unacceptable, disgusting and predictably dispicable.

capehill

Rocket you cant treat a klampett dingle, like Jackett the tnuC, because he 26 stowan, what couch could take that. The worlds heaviest man has sadly passed away in Mexico m8, so surely the dingle klampetts will have to get a crane when he's at matches and put him on the bottom tier, they will have to get the Guinness book of Records people in to make sure he isn't cheating. I know we've made another 300 seats available, but no way, it isn't happening. boing boing

well, what with you, 'Jackett', and '4 evahhh' turnin' up, we can start off the photoshoot with the first three t*ts.......

Captain Mardon International

We are very careful, perhaps too over cautious at times when signing people. Hopefully with Terry Burton now here things will get moving. I doubt we will sign 8-10 players this summer as we are now entering the world cup stage, so players will be focused on that. We have a few new youngsters who lok the most likely option.

priceywba....Plymouth..

We need to have players who want to play for us, but i do think we need to sort out a boss as he will be the one getting them together. We are a great club and it,s time we showed it. Come on you BAGGIES...

What is all the panic about?. Terry Burton is working his fry out along with Keith Downing on the transfer scene, calm down.

Afternoon,

so then....the headline states one thing but the actual story says another.....players will arrive in plenty of time I've no fear about that...and they'll be ready for a premier league campaign by the end of preseason.....so I'll not worry. The head coach needs sorting sooner rather than later, but again that will happen in good time so..again I'll not worry. Everyone that needs to be back at the club for the wheels to be in motion arrive back next week so I'd expect things to happen then fairy quickly.

No worries

Len of Bournville

It is very disappointing that this column seems to have become a forum for inane exchanges with supporters of another Black Country football club. It's time for the E and S censor to get to work before it all gets out of hand. Then we can get back to sensible discussion of the big issues that face our club right now.

Of course Gareth Mac is absolutely right. The problem is, as usual, that other mid and lower table premier clubs are all looking for new players at the same time. It should never have been allowed to reach a situation where we need at the very least 6 or 7 players at the same time. So much for Albion's forward planning - it evidently departed with Dan Ashworth.

Quinton Baggie

Len - totally agree...i have been brought into something by a thick dingle.

The View From Baggy Bottom

boy from,

very funny post.

But, on a serious note I have to admit that I have got sucked into replying to the trolls and it has been esculating from what used to be a bit of banter and fun, into something much more unpleasant.

It's spoiling what should be an exchange of views between Albion supporters on matters which affect our club.

Some of us have had a right go at giving as good as we get but it does no good in the end and we are wasting our time trying to insult them off our threads.

Perhaps it is now time to ignore them completely and see what happens, so that's what I intend to do. From now on I will only reply to posts from Albion fans on matters concerning WBA.

I can't speak for other baggies on here who seem to take the brunt,(no pun intended), of the trolls most odious posts, but I would hope that they too might try ignoring the protagonists and see how long it takes them to get bored when everyone ignors them.

To the trolls, who will no doubt try to goad me into biting back, I would just like to say, absolutely nothing!!!

Johneboywolves

An honest question - it's been on the cards that a new manager was needed so why is it taking weeks to appoint 1. And before anybody says it's a coach and not a manager then please explain the true difference. I've seen coaches that can't coach and managers that couldn't manage a good belch but they all seem to get sacked just the same. Kenny Jacket is our 'coach' but I'm sure he manages the team selection, which players to offload, players to sign, supports players when needed etc etc.

bob.williamsfindlay

And they wonder why the term "Dingles" was attached to those who bravely watched League One football last season.

Coaching is about the playing side of the club, whereas old fashioned managing includes all the paperwork, negotiations, etc.

Perhaps your Billy Bunter character does most of that stuff ....

Johneboywolves

Stupid response that didn't answer the questions.

bob.williamsfindlay

Firstly, I was answering the question: what is the difference between a coach and a football manager. See Barry Marcus, Jan 20th 2009, @ Sportinglife360.com

Second, there's an old saying; to the madman in an asylum, the whole world is stupid.

Pope

It's simple really, it will take as long as it takes. There is no pressure in the issue of signing players, the technical director starts tomorrow so things will start to move. We don't panic at Albion, generally we get what we need done when it needs doing.

Good morning everybody. My name is The View From Baggy Bottom and I'm a trollaholic!

There, I feel so much better now its out in the open. I know it won't be easy, but I'm determined to stay trollfree. One day at a time, they say.

"Get Albion squad sorted soon" Gareth McAuley urges. That's the headline.

What follows is a number of quotes from a player who is obviously keen to be part of an improved squad next season. A player explaining why it's important for a new squad of players to have time to get to know each other ahead of the new season.There are no ultimatums or complaints, just a desire for improvement, direction and clarity. It's what we all want and it's what the chairman has acknowledged, so we all seem to be on the same page.

It might be nice if The E&S made it sound as positive as it is, rather than making it sound like discontent in the dressing room, but that's journalists for you!

TVFB♥B

CantelloRocket 78

BB,

good morning, my friend-

you mention how journalists 'put a spin' on issues, and I've noticed the good ol' Daily Mirror has quickly jumped up to publish an interview with George Thorne claiming he's ' issued an ultimatum 'to the Baggies - play me, or let me go to Derby, I feel at home there, but not at Albion' - and of course, the Derby blogsites are instantly picking up on what the Mirror's published, to maximise the story.

It's true that George hasn't played many games for us, but he's only recently recovered from a very lengthy injury, and a new Head Coach may want him firmly in his plans for the future, but the press still can't resist stirring up unrest and muck-raking - the Mirror in particular doesn't need asking twice to pounce on this kind of stuff.

Jack the Hat

Cantello,

Correct mate, George was breaking into the first team when he got cruelly injured. He is back to full fitness now and his game has matured so much. This man has got to be given his chance in the first team.

BOING~~~~BOING~~~~J♣H.

The View From Baggy Bottom

Hi,Rocket,

George looks to have progressed but it's not always easy to judge when he's been playing in The Championship. I'm sure he will have been very closely monitored and if it is thought he can make the grade with us we will keep him whether Derby want him or not. He may well feel more at home with Derby at the moment, that's only natural when he's been playing regularly in a winning team, but given the chance of regular football in The Premier, I bet he would soon start to feel at home back with us. The fact is, it's not really his decision. Where his immediate future lies is up to Albion and I believe he probably has a very bright future.

Cheers,

TVFB♥B

AndyH

Hi mate,

to be honest now I'd play him pretty much all pre-season with Mulumbu in the middle of a 4 - 2 - 3 - 1 and see what happens before the season starts....he looked good pre injury and Derby had him playing well so...what's to lose? We get him fit...he gets to know his midfield team mates......he can tackle and set up play....a win win for me really.

now it's just a head coach and some players we need but they will come in time...

no worries

BB,

whilst on the subject of 'trolls', you can now see how our 'resident' one operates on here-

last night you responded to 'Jackett' about making racist remarks against the Scots, then a couple of hours later you also said you wouldn't be responding to the 'trolls' again-

so as I guessed, little more than half an hour later, 'ManInsider' re-appeared, supporting Jackett, and throwing jibes at Scottish people-

basically, mischievous, childish games, taunting people, in the same way as when 'Wbaforever' said to ignore him and he'll go away - so he shouted 'no I won't!!', and immediately started posting as 'ForeverWba'-

like most known trolls, probably little more than a sad loner who derives pleasure from trying to upset other people - extremely sad and pitiful.

THEGREENMAN

I think we have all proved that we're more than a match for the idiotic trolls, but yes it is getting out of hand, and we're coming down to their level by rising to the bait. I find it all too easy to put them down, but afterwards I think to myself --why bother --leave them to wallow in their sewer.!!

The View From Baggy Bottom

Hi Rocket,

I knew what would happen and it's really annoying and frustrating, but strangely satisfying to be able to resist the temptation to respond. Like you, I was fully expecting the alter-ego's to turn up as soon as I declared that I wouldn't be responding and sure enough they did. If nothing else, they are predictable.

But in the end, what can he/they do if we just ignore him/them.

At least two thirds of this page has been taken up by troll posts and troll bashing and I have been as guilty as anyone. I want to return to discussions between fellow baggies about what affects WBA.

If we don't respond to their posts, whatever the provocation, they can't touch us. If they respond to our posts just ignore them and carry on replying to contributions from Baggie posters as though the trolls don't exist.

We all know they can only exist if we feed them, so don't feed them.

There are enough sensible baggies on here to have conversations with, why bother to waste our time with the idiots who would drag us down to their level.

If we all stick together on this, they will implode with frustration.

Let's hope for a decent E&S story tomorrow so that we can have some interesting comments from baggies.

Boing Boing!!

Hi there View - Rocket - Cyril,

I've got to admit that the "racist" posts from euro on one thread and now jacket and maninsider on this one have made me smile a little because it shows them up for what they actually are....nothing! I'd get annoyed and press the abuse button but that would only remove the post...not the intent or the person. Every time they post now it serves to remind people what they posted...and what they come across as....nothing else really.....they are stuck in the 1970's with their attitudes so I'll smile and post on...the daft thing is that many wolves fans that post on here are decent blokes / ladies.....and I'd hope that they would judge the offending posts for what they are.....anyway my father in law is a wolf and I'd guess he's pretty annoyed (he doesn't do internet)

as for the E&S letting them through....I'll deal with that just by asking the question about publishing certain material ect...after all they are responsible for all that is published....

cheers fella's

Hi Andy,

you mentioned various names in your post, so I just wanted to quickly say that there are certain differences amongst these people-

some of our 'visitors' are decent rival fans who simply want a fair-minded discussion-

some are rival fans who have a deep grudge - and even hatred - towards all things Albion, and continually throw criticisms and try to 'belittle' us, often with very stupid claims-

and then there's the 'troll' type, that often change their names, and get their pleasure from nothing more than finding ways of making people upset and angry-

these people are often all 'lumped together' but I guess it's important to try seeing the difference, and treating each type accordingly.

All the best, pal.

AndyH

Hi Rocket,

Your perfectly correct what you say about those from The Dark Side who change their names but if posters had realized the folly of giving them time many months, if not years, ago they would not be so entrenched in our camp while knowing who's button to press.

I think in general the genuine Dingle usually has a clue in the name coupled with an obvious friendly tone to their post and me or anyone else is not suggesting we include these in a blanket ban, but lets suck it an see and hopefully improves.

Chaps may I suggest, that you don't get sucked into a conversation, with the resident Dingle Klampetts, (its a breakaway faction of the Real dingles.) Just put down your thoughts about em, ( for eg, Jackett(rhymes with klampett) the hat, we know he is a mossive 26 stoner. or what you wittness, (the obvious Bin dipping) , or hear, (YEEEEEEHAAAAAAAA,) I mean for eg, Why on earth (its beyond me) JohnBoywolves, why would you be called that if your not a klampett, come on every body yeeeeehaaaaa, boing boing lol lol

I used to look forward to reading these blogs and comments about my club and what my fellow supporters had to say about events and goings on. However now this forum is just about slagging each other off, hurling abusevat each other and vile comments. Anything rather football matters and albion are discussef which is a shame.

I know Wolves trolls rile everyone but shame on you all for rising to them. Just ignore em and they will get bored. Can we get back to our club matters please and what is important. No critisism of anyone just want what is best for my club!!!!

ELDERVO

I for one am more than Happy to stick to discussing footballing matters and have no problem giving and taking the odd bit of friendly banter. The problem however is that any comments posted on here from a Wolf that are seen as being negative or differing in opinion to certain Baggies are met with hostility , silly user name changes or double dip childish comments from Jack, which starts the whole thing off again, and we're all guilty of being drawn in.

So let's see if there are baggies out there willing to listen to alternative points of view and put a reasoned argument forward

Regarding the Head coach job, I've read many posts on here over recent weeks initially backing Mel and excusing the poor results with the fact that until Mel could bring his own players in and field 'his team' it was unfair to judge him. Fair comment and one I agree with. Recent posts however on the delay in appointing someone all seem to accept that new players can be brought in and business done before the new coach arrives. Either he should be involved in forming his own team or not. Is it ok to add players to the squad he may not want or should it wait until the guy is appointed and had time to assess what he feels the clubs needs? Calling for patience until Mel was allowed to bring his own players in doesn't really sit well with what is currently happening at the club.

Kev,

Bon dia.

I think the situation can sometimes be a bit complicated, we have different people, with different motives visiting the site, and all of them hidden away from view-

I've mentioned to you before that I can spot almost all the troublemakers and 'trolls' instantly - even in 'disguise' - and if it was only me and them on here, I'd just loff in their faces, but during conversations we often have relatively new, trusting Albion fans who believe some of these troublemakers are genuine people, so I often challenge them by making them show their true colours.

So how do you deal with some of these people?

For example, you know that my Mother died very recently in a Care home, and my Brother's being treated with depression, so we're trying to get him help with the local Health authorities-

well further up the thread, I noticed the odious, hate-fueled -

'1877wolves'

- submitted a post sneeringly claiming I have care-workers looking after me - it's difficult to suppress your anger when low-life scumbags like this come over here day and night with this vile tripe, and actually admit they're just trying to upset us-

if you can get the mods to clamp down on all this unacceptable rubbish, we can get back to decent conversations, hopefully with a bit of light-heartedness thrown in from time to time, but things need to be cleaned up first.

CantelloRocket 78

By the way, it looks like the mods have now pulled '1877's disgusting remarks, let's hope they act quickly on similar stuff in the future.

Kev in Mallorca

Cantello

Obviously I agree that the post you mentioned was totally out of order but exchanges like those have built up over months and months of bickering, so all the more reason too call a halt.

I don't entirely buy into your premise of you protecting the new and innocent among us, you know you enjoy trying too get the last laugh in, but I'm sure before too long any new poster will click who he's talking too.

There's no need for you to be the safety officer, yowl be trying to stop Cyril snuggling up to any beautiful young lady he meets in case he gets himself into trouble, stopping Max loffin' in case his missus and kids think he gone mad and have him put away, even trying in the forlorn hope to stop Medway talkin', carry on like this and yowl be replacing Ventress in Heartbeat.

There will be a new story popping up soon and hopefully this particular thread will be closed off sooner rather than later.

Saturday was a bad day on here and I would like to appologise to fellow baggies for my part in it and for cluttering the thread with non baggie related vitreol directed at certain known trolls. Sunday was much better and some common sense returned.

As I have said several times now, I will not be responding to any troll posts, however well disguised or provocative. That's MY personal choice, I am not trying to police the site.

On the record, I would like to thank Johneboywolves for being the only Wolves fan to date, who stood up to condemn Jackett the hats outragious racist jibe and taking some flack for his trouble.

Now, lets get back to discussing all things Baggie.

Boing Boing!!!

Hi mate,

good post....

just read on the transfer thread that Thorne wants to move to Derby...hope it's not true and that if he's around the first team picture he'll stay for a long time......also saw at the weekend laudrups name linked again......got to be honest I'd like a head coach in place by the end of the week if possible as we need to sort out the playing staff for next term..

not worried but would like things to move on a bit now..

On a serious note i am proud to be English but found the comments of various trolls beyond distasteful .

As for the Baggies well we do need to get our fingers out and move the Club forward after last seasons debacle .

All the best .

Hi there mate,

cheers!! To be honest I do hope England do well this summer....win the damn thing and shut the pundits up who constantly be little English / British football!! And with Ben in the squad it would be a big boost to him.

Now if the Albion could please sort out the head coach's position.....sooner.......

Max and Andy. In my view it's all about tribalism. If we move our hunting fields to live, we attach to a nearby friendly tribe and become a close cousin of that tribe. When one of my daughters lived in The Land Of Jock, I went to as many Kilmarnock fixtures as I could. Good people, always up for a discussion

and BLUE AND WHITE STRIPES too. What more could a Baggie ask ?

THEGREENMAN

To all genuine Baggie posters.

Well done to everybody who has decided to ignore the rubbish from the evil, foul mouthed neighbours, ( they know who they are and so do we). At the same time most of us appreciate a little light-hearted banter with the genuine Wolves fans who want to talk football. That's how it should be and that is how we must go forward. I've only been posting for a couple of weeks and I must admit to being dragged into the rubbish that has gone back and forth. My only reason for joining in was to defend our wonderful club and all who support it. It's a natural reaction if someone slags you off or defiles something you hold dear, but I'm glad that our sensible posters agree that the answer to all the filth is to ignore it.!!

On the club front let's hope we hear some positive news regarding the Head Coach position, and maybe a few players coming in.

THEGREENMAN.

Cyril

An observation: This topic, 'The Albion squad must be sorted' has been on these boards for ages and if you look closely there hasn't been a bit of real news since the

Retained List was published. It is the close season, the newspapers have nothing to tell us, the club is secretive whilst making a decision about the new Head Coach and we, the supporters are bored with no news. Add to this our neighbours are on a high having got promoted, the normal ones looking forward and upward, the nutters having a desperate need to torment anything and anyone a bit different, come over here. Do we give them a free ride ? Maybe E&S could run a vote ???

Yes O No O

Cyril,

In my opinion you are a decent man, a man with high moral standards. To the trolls this is a weakness to be exploited. They will target you and goad you into replying to their taunts just so that they can insult you and get you going.

I don't see ignoring them as giving them a free ride. I prefer to look on it as taking the higher moral ground. But it's entirely up to you how you deal with them. You will not get, (or take I imagine), any nonsense from me about how you should handle it. You seem more than capable of standing your own ground.

In my opinion these people are cowards. They have no credence. You have respect.

Pathetic, In line with recent requests, I put up a genuine very relevant post for discussion and all I get is we're not talking to you !

May I respectfully suggest that in the recent past, that you have been inclined to take swipes at the Albion, and some of the contributors to these threads. A possibility why no one has responded to your genuine post.

I will engage you sir.

Everything you said about Pepe Mel is a valid observation, and I personally would have liked to have seen his image of a football team.

We will never be party to what really went so sour, but I believe that things were happening behind the scenes that made his position untenable.

ELDERVO

The point I was trying to make was to question which way you should go on the subject of appointing a new head coach and bringing players in. Many have said that Mel needed to have the players he wanted to be able to put his playing style and tactics in place yet players are being targeted and signed already before the interviews have even taken place. Shouldn't player targets wait until the new guy arrives so he can have an input otherwise you end up with another coach in place with players he may not have been interested in and who don't fit in with his vision.

It's a difficult one because of the time scales involved. Players need to have as long as possible to gel before the season starts but on the other hand JP wants/needs to get it right this time.

AndyH - Cyril was 100% spot on about the Scots...I have been to Scotland many times and find the people welcoming and the Country a lovely place to visit and we would be in worse shape if the Scots voted to break away from the UK...next in line would be Wales...We are Great Britain because of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland combined which makes u the envy of the world.

To all the idiotic Wolves fanscoming on our pages without anything to do but post garbage...talk to the hand cause the face aint bothered.

Well at least my post got us real baggies fans and genuine wolves fans to see that we can all enjoy the banter without the vile troll interludes.

I agree with the majority of ignoring the kids but we should manage by exception regarfing any personal insults..not on!

Any ways lets get the humour back and hopefully enjoy this site again as I am sure is why most of us are on here in the first place. Still none the wiser with regards the new manager as all the bookies seem to be clueless too. Says a lot for JP keeping a tight ship and I hope he pulls a real nice surprise for us all. Need to keep Thorne too who would start ahead of Yacob now who has dissaponted this season. The lad needs a talking too but am sure he will be OK once the new man has the chat (whovever he may be) ...Welcome back guys!! COYB.

May I take this opportunity to apologise unreservedly to any Albion supporter that I may have upset. It actually started because i received let's say a negative response earlier.Two wrongs don't make a right, and especially to Cantello Rocket 78, I am sorry to have heard of your personal circumstances and hope things improve there.I am all for genuine good hearted banter between us, and long may that remain.Again sincere apologies- yours in football.
