West Brom in the race for Georgios Samaras

West Brom boss Alan Irvine today confirmed the club are in the race to sign free agent Georgios Samaras.

celtic-samaras-430202

The 29-year-old had been linked with a move to the Hawthorns and the Baggies head coach admitted the Greece international is on the club’s shortlist.

Irvine said: "He’s a player we are aware of and he is a player who is on our list. We have been enquiring about him but nothing has been done as far as he is concerned at this particular moment.

“We have some lists that have been extremely long at times and then they have got shorter and then got longer again.”

Samaras is currently a free agent after leaving Celtic at the end of the season but has also held talks with Spanish clubs Malaga, while Sevilla, Hamburg and Lokomotiv Moscow have also been linked.

Irvine said: “There is no doubt they are easier if they are free agents because you are at least in the position where you are taking another club out of the equation.

"You are not waiting for them saying whether they will sell the player or not. But, of course, free agents have a lot of options and you can find it is tough to complete the deal.”

Irvine admitted Samaras’ big-game mentality could aid the Baggies, after starring for his national side at the World Cup this summer.

This has not gone unnoticed by Albion, who have done their homework, and Irvine believes he is a player who could improve Albion’s current squad.

He said: "We are trying to do our due diligence with every player. You contact everyone you know that would know a particular player or are in touch with people who know them.

“You find a way of getting as much information as possible. The picture of Georgios Samaras would be somebody who has played extremely well in some very big games over the last few years, for Greece and for Celtic.

“He looks like the type of player who could help us but we have to have a lot of different options on the go.”

Please please sign him, he will make anichebe look as deadly as Suarez, ever we don't want him down the road.

This lad has done well since winning Eurovision ... I'll get me coat.

Brilliant, it says something when his goal record in Scotland is poo, he will tear up the premiership ha ha, kinda glad we can't afford him

Captain Mardon International

Mate I'm dreading this if it happens, I have a strong feeling it will too.

I'd be laughing if it were you signing him so fair cop.

eldervo-

So you whinge and moan on here about name-calling and unacceptable content, then you post a rascist remark, and call people names??

blatant hypocrisy anyone.....???

ELDERVO

I tried the genuine football comment approach after the sunderland game. Read your reply to it !

Racist ? He looks like a scruffy hippy traveller type, hence the caravan, whats that got to do with race ??

Hoo still calls me various different things so just returning in kind. It's just my guess he's some sort of rent a cop type and imo traffic warden suits the way he writes. As far as unacceptable comments is concerned, I was refering to stuff like "pillow biters" "James Hunts" and wolves fans burning to death, that you seem to find so clever even "genius" from your mate Capehill.

Hypocrisy ? behave.

El-

that's a fair amount of explaining - and 'word weaving' - from you, in order to give yourself a sense of self-justification in what you post-

I'm particularly amused at how you blame various Baggies fans for what they say on the Baggies site as being responsible for the way you act yourself-

are you always so easily influenced by others, and unable to firmly make up your own mind?

Then again, you DID switch your allegiance from supporting one club to that of their local rivals, after being encouraged to-

so I guess the question's already been answered......

capehill

Get over yourself, you are a repetitive irritant, you come on here just to snipe at the Albion, why are you so obsessed to come on here, every time u cry about me, no one is interested, you did the most deceitful thing by turning your back on the Albion, and supporting Wolves, so be it, go and tell them on the wulfies site im sure they will positively engage with you, because they will be delighted with a turn coat in there midst., do not try to engage in football chat on here, no body but nobody is interested in anything you've got to say, you must have noticed. So, what do u do, help im being abused, will somebody please tell them, what is wrong with you? Dry your eyes and wipe yer bottom, enough.

SurreyBaggie

Brum Mail reporting that Saints made an offer too, but we are favourites to sign him. Sounds as though this one is going ahead. Probably not going to be the most headline-breaking of signings, but will still offer us something new and give us some depth. I think he'll do all right with us.

Max Wall Heath Baggie

You must be joking mate . If appointing Irvine did not make us look a laughing stock , signing this bloke will.

Beware Greeks bearing gifts old pal.

SurreyBaggie

Oh I didn't particularly feel that appointing AI made us look a laughing stock. Certainly some eyebrows were raised and questions asked but the preceding season probably had people sniggering at us more, if that was their will.

In my opinion I don't think it would be a bad signing. I think it says a little the other interested clubs.

It would be a boring world if we all agreed though.

The Real Bully Hoo.

I believe you are guilty of being caught in possession of an open mind Surrey.

peter.lineton.9

When I read this story,why did I start thinking about Nicolas Anelka?

Max Wall Heath Baggie

Who next Titus Bramble ? Jamie O'hara ? Kevin Doyle ? Champion the Wonder Horse ? . We have lost the plot big time.

Captain Mardon International

Mate your on a roll, entertainment for a bad day at the office.

Captain Mardon International

Please please NO.

CantelloRocket 78

Well Chris Lepkowski in the Brum Mail claims Samaras is having further talks with the Baggies, and is about to take a medical - it's said that Malaga and Southampton have made him offers, but at present, it looks more likely he's coming here.......

SurreyBaggie

I'm actually quite pleased with that. Seems a real marmite player, but a lot of his attributes are quality, once you get past the "bet he won't score many" argument. I hope we get him.

That said, plenty of time for Hull and West Ham to get involved.

Captain Mardon International

I love Marmite, please don't insult such a wonderful thing.

Thehoffsleftsock

Ha ha, great comment, but I thought we were the only club shopping in Aldi for players at the molineux, not you lot

CantelloRocket 78

Well if Samaras does sign, we'll just have to see what he can do-

if he turns out to be useless, then fair enough - on the other hand, if he ends up making a decent impression, and gives a positive contribution to the Baggies fortunes this season, those people already writing him off as a complete joke risk looking like the back end of Kev's Donkey-

so I guess it'll be up to the guy to prove himself.....

Woodman Corner Jake

I think he'd be a good signing....he brings experience, versatility and no little talent. My mate who regularly watched him in Jockland rates him, but adds that he needs to be motivated by a challenge.....he was at his best in the bigger fixtures.. The Premier League presents this....there being no easy matches. He's also still the right side of 30 and will no-doubt feel he's got something to prove.

I don't care that he didn't set the world alight at Arab-oil City........we're at the other end of that particular spectrum. Perhaps he prefers to be a bigger fish in a smaller pool.

I'd say, take a punt JP. Meanwhile, I think I'll throw a few plates against the wall!

AndyL

At risk of repeating myself I expressed my feelings on the anichebe thread the basic comment was this guy ranges from moments of sheer brilliance to being completely woeful.

He tends to raise his game for the big occasions and is so laid back he has a very cool head.

One of those signings that if we get him we will go from loving him to despairing, personally having watched him on many occasions for Celtic I don't think he is what we are looking for but I have a feeling the word free means we will get him

If that's the case give him a chance and we may be surprised if it doesn't work there's been no outlay, would still like to see another signing or two including this

capehill

Never seen him play, by the sounds of it, he is rubbish, but I cannot judge the bloke, if he comes then, good luck, and do your best. Just read he turned down 25000 a week at Turkish club, and a Spanish side are close to signing him?

Marc

My question is to Max

Who would you like to see us sign cuz you seem happy to criticise anything we do?

Max Wall Heath Baggie

MARC

i have played that game before and all that happens is that you get shot down by the ' hear no evil , speak no evil , sit on the fence until death comes brigade '.

Question to you mate , would you sign Samaras and do you rate him ?.

I am allowed to have an opinion and since Hodgson and Ashworth departed we have made one bad move after the next .The reason we employ non entities like Clarke , Mel and Irvine is so we can get away with signing players like Samaras . Any Coach/Manager with an ounce of sense or credibility would not tolerate a signing of this nature .

The Real Bully Hoo.

But Max, Ronald Koeman wanted him at Southampton, are you saying he has no sense or credibility and that's if you ignore the clubs Rocket has listed, are they all idiots as well?

I don't know about Marc but as our 4th striker yes I would sign him. On a previous thread I listed the pro's in signing him and invited anybody to do the same with the con's. I got one reply and the only thing that was cited was his scoring ratio. As I said to you before, on that score you would have turned down Mark Hughes in his pomp.

It's so easy to knock everything the club tries to do and make sweeping statements. I know the hear no evil speak no evil is tongue in cheek but what I do is try to be fair. I've often criticised things to do with the club but I don't have that as my default setting.

I know a section of our fans will be salivating as they wait for the first time Samaras miscues a ball or misses a chance I won't be one of them.

Max Wall Heath Baggie

Ronald Koeman paid 12 million for Shane Long mate so i a'int to sure he's a good judge .

THEGREENMAN

Surely if Seville and Lokomotiv Moscow are interested, you would think he would fancy either of them, as they can offer European football for him next season. I suppose a lot depends on the player himself, what his hopes are for the future. He may not fancy league football in Moscow, or he may not think he is suited to Spanish football.

He's a big item and that could be useful in certain games, especially when Vic inevitably gets injured at some stage of the season. His ability to hold the ball up and lay it off is equal to Vic, if not better and his scoring is definitely better.

THEGREENMAN

baggiz681

Just as I thought things were looking up, I read this, please no.

The Real Bully Hoo.

I think we have to accept that Moaners and Whingers Unlimited have had a thin time of it lately so best let them have their moment in the rain.

Max Wall Heath Baggie

Clarke , Mel and Irvine plus a plethora of awful signings , its been a bumper harvest and it never rains in Costa Del Wall Heath .

CantelloRocket 78

Well this is fascinating-

a number of people on here have pleaded for Albion not to sign Samaras, because they think he's absolute rubbish, and wouldn't touch him with a barge pole-

meanwhile - in the media - it's claimed he's received interest or offers from Malaga, Sevilla, Sampdoria, Hamburg, Locomotive Moscow, Besiktas, Southampton, and even Celtic have seriously considered asking him back - plus it's also claimed a club in China has offered him over 5 mil a year to join them, but he turned it down because he didn't want to play in Asia!!

Maybe we can warn all these clubs just how bad he is, they obviously haven't got round to doing any research......

Mboy

I believe that lots of clubs wanted Anelka last season!!

CantelloRocket 78

Mboy-

really?

Which clubs were they.....??

Jay

The only way this deal should happen is if he's brought as a 5th striker because I think if he's brought in we still need another quick forward because even though berihino is scoring he is still learning and when ideye goes to the ACON then we will only have 2 strikers in anichebe and samaras ????? We need goals and 2forwards and 2 wingers then we could achieve good things COYB get the deals over the line

The Real Bully Hoo.

You aren't going to get a better striker than Samaras willing to be our 4th striker. If you have 5 strikers you will drive our talented young strikers away because they will see no chance of ever getting a chance to play first team football.

I love to see our youngsters like Liam O'Neill get a game and look forward to seeing more. One of the reasons we stagnated under Atkinson, although he'd moved on before it happened was that he had no interest in bringing young players through. He inherited a great team and spent all of the money in the coffers on alleged star players before he ran off to ruin Man Ure.

We are just beginning to get a youth system going like the ones we had in the 60's and late 70's, if you stifle them then it will be destroyed.

Inside Man

You gotta remember we are looking for a forth choice striker. Brown, Anichebe, Berahino would be ahead of him. We aren't gonna have a forward line like man city .... Let's be realistic.

Kev the Rev in LA

Inside

Yes but you should know by now they still expect a minimum 6-7 million price tag just too sit on the bench.

Adeu

Max Wall Heath Baggie

In any decent squad Anichebe would be fifth or sixth pick . Think small stay small .

CantelloRocket 78

Max,

if Anichebe was our sixth striker, then including lads on the bench and in the Reserves, we'd have at least 10 Strikers - so if you apply that to other positions, we'd probably end up with a 40-man Squad-

at least nobody could accuse us of thinking small anymore.....

The Real Bully Hoo.

Think big, it worked for Leeds... and Portsmouth... and Sheffield Wednesday... and Ipswich... Notts Forest... and ___________ insert a name of your choice.

RobinBrittain

You are being unrealistic Max and you have not answewred the earlier question about who you would sign.

Bully made the point about the quality of the other clubs interested but you seem to ignore this

Just because you have made your mind up does not mean you are right.

Max Wall Heath Baggie

ROBIN

See answer to Marc about naming names .

As for the interest of other Clubs there must be one hell of a talent drain if all those Clubs are interested or could it be his agent dropping names . ' Trust nothing of what you hear and even less of what you see ' .

As for being right well if Samaras signs and does the business i will be the first to apologise and i cannot really be any fairer than that.

Jay

I know mate but if this is the case I would of rather had Rhodes or some 1 of that quality what I'm saying is if he's not the fifth striker then let's not bother signing him I feel we need a forward who will give us confidence at the moment ideye might not cut it anichebe don't really score more than 5 and berihino might get 10 he might not so where does that leAve us I'm not saying spend loads but least with odemwingie we knew we had more chance of winning than losing a game for me unless we get really good wingers who is going to excite and and be creative like odem did that's what we lost upfront last year . When u have a player like that teams are always focusing on them type of players and leaves the others exposed IMO after five games or so most teams will work anichebe and samaras out I just hope brown turns out quality

capehill

Max Think small stay small, bode us well. So far. Who would u sign , Ballotelli 16mill, De Maria 50 mill, I don't know its a minefield, think big ,can we afford it. No idea , so just out of interest m8, who would be your targets max. It would be interesting to know m8. We have splashed 9 mill on Brown though.

Max Wall Heath Baggie

CAPEY

See reply to Marc , sorry mate but played that game before and not doing it again .

capehill

Seen, no worries m8… I was just interested to c who u had in mind. Personally I wouldn't have signed him, how ever I believe we just have. Therefore good luck georgio being boing

peter.lineton.9

Yeah Peter, just why did you think about Anelka ?

From what I know about the guy, he's very well liked up North, no controversy what so ever about him.

Did anyone se the story about the Young Celtic fan with Dawn syndrome.

I would say the last thing that came to my mind was infact Anelka.

The Real Bully Hoo.

There is also the small fact that when we have a dip in fortunes a number of our supporters jump ship. When we drop into the championship our gates average 17,000. How can the chairman think big when he knows that one mistake on his part and relegation will bring.

1. The inevitable drop in PL revenue.

2. The inevitable drop in sponsorship revenue.

3. The inevitable fall in gate receipts.

If you don't believe me ask the Wolves fans. (And that's not a dig because I'm sure they will confirm all of these things happened to their club.)

glassboy baggy

I see we have the usual load of crass comments from those envious supporters of that totally inferior small club down the road .That's fine by me , fans banter but I am perplexed by the negative comments being bandied around by my fellow " Gods Team " supporters . This blokes just come back from playing in the world cup and last year didn't he play in the champions league for Celtic .I think that's a good pedigree and he still looks good on video . leave it to the management, they haven't done a bad job with signings so far have they ..Now let's stick it up Kooman Saturday . Boing Boing.

EMMA DALE

Irvine believes he is a player who could improve Albion current squad........................

So could Mrs. Brown

BuxtonBaggie

Samaras is one of those strikers who will infuriate but who will also pop up with important goals. Given that Berahino seems to be rejuvenated and Ideye will pose our main threat, I think having Samaras as a fall back option in the squad is no bad thing. So people who are moaning need to understand the job he's being brought in to do.

CantelloRocket 78

I guess the thing that 'irks' is we always seem to have a 'target of ridicule', be it Scott Carson, Liam Ridgewell, Jimmy Morrison, Chris Brunt, etc. - now we're taking it a stage further, and giving the same treatment to a player who hasn't even signed for us yet!!!

I've seen various 'snippets' of Samaras since he joined Man.City some years back, and my main impression is of a 'flair' player, such a guy often blows hot or cold, as suggested by 'AndyL', who said he can be woeful, or outstandingly brilliant-

Ok, well if he's playing pants, pull him off the pitch and replace him, but when he's on song he could win us games, and valuable points.

If he does sign, at least give the guy a chance to get on the pitch and give it a goo.....

Max Wall Heath Baggie

Your are a cad and a bounder Sir , how very dare you mention CARSON on these hallowed boards.

CantelloRocket 78

Max,

I'll see if Scott's free to attend yer next Birthday Party, ok marmate.....? ;-)

The View From Baggy Bottom

This is all a bit ridiculous. I'm no great fan of Samaras but he is an international footballer of some repute, and having spent £10M on Brown as our main striker, we are hardly likely to be looking for anything other than somebody who has class, can give us some options and add depth to the squad. Samaras is capable of turning on the class. He has scored goals at the highest level all over the world, including some crackers against some of the top teams in Europe. He's available on a free and has a choice of options across Europe and the far east. He probably wants to prove himself in the best league in the world and if he wants to prove it by joining us, I say let him have a go. He could have gone to China and taken the money. The fact that he has turned the money down for footballing reasons shows that he's no money grabbing mercenary.

Are we likely to find anyone better in the next week or so? I doubt it very much. If he decides to join us, over all of the other clubs he could go to, I say, welcome to The Hawthorns, thank you and good luck mate.

TVFB♥B

THEGREENMAN

TVFBB

I can't think of anyone with the same experience of International and European football, spread over a number of years, who is available on a free transfer.

We have to accept his limitations, as we do with all players, and realise that he won't be playing every week, but will be on the bench ready to come on and grab that vital goal , or set one up.

People tend to forget it is a squad game, and when they see a player being signed that they don't like, or for free the tendency is to think the player will be of no use to us..

If Samaras can get us a dozen goals for the season he will have done his job. We all need to get behind him and the rest of the team.

Danish,

In truth, I have no idea. I gave up trying to second guess the Albion and their transfer dealings a long time ago.

I would like to see one more big signing for the wide position, just to show that we have the intent. Somebody who will make the others sit up and take notice and say, wow, the Baggies really mean business this season.

It won't be easy to pull that kind of deal off and I don't suppose it will happen, but it would be nice and we can dream, can't we?

lichfieldstripes

I have supported the baggies for 60 years during that time I have seen hundreds of players come and go and I travelled the length and breadth of the UK and Europe watching the Albion and if I was well enough I would still be doing so . I have seen a few good times with my beloved club but in all honesty there have been more bad times. But they are still my club and always will be . I can not believe what I am reading these days from supposed Albion fans ,I accept that the fact that the moronic Dingles have a go at us but can you blame them because they wouldn`t recognise a game of football if it smacked them in the face.

Come on Baggies fans you all know as well as I do you support the Albion because its in your blood, if you want support a team that is going to win things go and join the thousands that have become Man City or Chelsea fans since they have had Billions invested in them. If you support the Baggies accept the fact if we finish in the top 10 we have had a great season. If we sign players like Samaras ,Gardner Baird etc give them a chance and for gods sake stop moaning, you either love the club or you don`t . If you don`t, go and watch the Dingles or sell your soul to the glory hunters. Boing Boing.

The View From Baggy Bottom

Lichfieldstripes,

Well said sir. Spot on.

Some people live in a fantacy world where we can compete for a champions league spot. We are embarking on our fifth straight season in the most competative league in the world. THESE are the good times, yet some are too busy moaning to enjoy them.

There are a host of "Big Clubs", that can't get into the Premier League, who would give anything to be in our position, but for some it's not enough.

Yes, it would be nice to win one of the cups, finish top half, or set a new club record points tally, and those should be our objectives. But apart from that, what can we reasonably expect.

I too have been around long enough to have seen some of the best of times, but they are always fleeting in nature and intersperced with times of hardship which have to be endured with grace and optimism for the future.

In my experience, the moaners just moan even louder when we have reversals and say I told you things were going wrong, but you wouldn't listen. They also never refer to the good times, because obviously, there have never been any.

Human nature, I guess!

I agree with you 100% about Ashworth and Hodgson as it would seem our Chairman does.

Samaras will do a job for us. Unfortunately I have no idea how much it is going to cost for him to do the job so I can understand people's reaction to this signing.

As we have just paid £10 million for a striker, I would like to think he will be our number 1 choice and the likes of Samaras and Big Vic will fill in round the edges. Personally I thought the money paid for Anichebe was well over the top and that we had a better player in Marco Fortune.

I didn't make the game last week as I was on holiday. I went to the Porto game and thought we were in desperate need of pace on both wings. Again it has been muted that Samaras can play wide but I have to admit to being horrified if he is to be played there permanently.

These boards are for people to express their views, whether we agree with them or not and grammar and spelling should not be a barrier.

I'm a proud Black Countryman and I detest snobbery in any form.
