James Morrison: West Brom have a good squad

Midfielder James Morrison today insisted West Brom have the squad to steer clear of relegation despite a quiet transfer deadline day.

James Morrison of West Bromwich Albion

The Baggies did not add to their squad on the final day of business after snapping up 11 new players during the summer.

But Morrison, who made his return to Premier League action at Swansea City on Saturday after summer surgery, insists Alan Irvine’s man can thrive once all of their recruits are fit.

Joleon Lescott, Georgios Samaras, Silvestre Varela and Sebastian Blanco are yet to make their debuts while Cristian Gamboa, Jason Davidson and record signing Brown Ideye are still striving for full fitness.

The Baggies have picked up just two points from their first three games and lost 3-0 with a dismal display at Swansea on Saturday.

But Morrison said: “We’ve got a big squad now and we just need to get players fit and pushing for places.

“Then I think we’ll be ready to survive in this league. We are only three games in and with one defeat we can’t get carried away or let it affect us.

“I said after the game that we need to bounce back and not let this defeat harm our season and get stuck in a rut.

“We know what it’s like to be in that rut. It’s hard to get out of and I believe this season will be tight again with a lot of teams bunched together.

“One win can see you jump up the table or you can be down there so it will be an exciting season. But we’re all together and pulling in the right direction.”

Albion have a two-week international break before they return to action with a home game against Everton in the Premier League.

And Morrison said: “We’ve got a good gap now for the lads to work and settle in because it’s not easy to settle in at clubs when you come from a different country.”

I have to disagree yes we ve got 11 layers in but its the quality of them that worries me. We re an established premier league club now and we should be in a position to raise the bar higher. Look at hull for instance theyve brought in hernandez diame ince snodgrass hatem ben arfa dawson etc these ate the type of proven quality players we should be after. To be fair most of our signongs wete largely unknown to albion fans.

We Only Need One Half!

Yes, and when we left our business till the last day the previous season we were accused of panicking (possibly you were one of them if anyone could be bothered to check?) yet I have not heard that accusation levelled at Hull yet?

Obviously the next round of the League Cup is weighing heavy on their mind ;-)

youngand hungry

it wont be weighing heavy on bruntys shoulders that's a fact .

'super'-

well you say at the end 'to be fair', so I assume you like to be fair?

In which case, when you compare us to Hull City, and their transfer dealings, are you talking about the club that's owned by mega-rich Assem Allam, who's added over 70 million pounds of his own money to the funds that Hull get from the premiership?

And is that the club that's changed it's name, and given the fans shiny badges saying 'I'm a member of the Tigger club!', and if anyone protests, the owner's threatened to pack his bags and leave?

Just wondering.......

Jackett the Hat

I heard he was thinkin of changing the strip aswell......how thoughtless would that be, they ain't got that much of an identity as it is.

We Only Need One Half!

Yeah, well when you only have colours Jackett, rather than an identity such as our stripes, like you say, there's not much you can do to change it, is there?

When alls said and done, every team has colours, very few have a identity.

RobinBrittain

Superwestbrom

Lescott and Samaras unknown I dont think so . A winger from FC Porto , one of the best sides in Europe , with over 20 caps and an Argentinian from the Ukraine also with caps and a top pedigree. The problem with all our new players , Gardner apart , is that they are not match fit and that includes Brown Ideye who will show his true colours when he is played in the right position.

If you look at the players Hull have signed they are no better than our new additions. Gamboa and Davidson played in the World Cup and both will come good with time.

All of this new found pessimism comes from the display at Swansea but you have to remember that the team last Saturday included several players from the team that was nearly relegated last season , so what do you expect.

Given a little time and some patience you will see a big difference.

Albion have been dealt a massive blow beneath the belt regarding preseason training as we all know. Even now we have eleven players going on international duty which will further disrupt what we need to be doing. No club has had so many changes on and off the park as Albion have this season and is bound to impact on our season's start. Our supporters realize this but there are others who I call the ' Get some in brigade ' who hang around waiting for this type of moment to berate anything and everything about our club and I'm not talking about the usual outside influences. This brigade then state they do it because they love Albion, well it's a good job they don't hate the club, blimey we have only lost one match. I will not be goaded into their band even if I break my rose tints. The reason I didn't give my point of view on the Swansea match is because we didn't perform well which is to be expected at this moment in time. Why should I run down players who are doing their best under trying circumstances while half of the squad get their fitness where they want it to be?. Now I can sit back and watch my team gradually improve as the season progresses.

Onward and upward with the BAGGIES.

Eloquent Jack dear boy but very optimistic. 4th favourite for the drop now after being 5th favourite 3 weeks ago.

Your next games are:

Everton

Spurs

Burnley

Liverpool

Man Utd

I'd hazard a guess at 3 points from those 5 games unless your optimism disagrees? A total of 5 points from the 1st 8 games. That's after 21% of the season's games are played!

Hi Rhys-

nice of you to pop over, and join in our discussion about having a good squad of players-

so how's the squad building going over at Wolves these days, then?

Oh hang on a minute, haven't you been trying to sign players all Summer, but it seems nobody want to go there?

Actually, I heard that by last night's deadline, you were so desperate to sign someone - anyone!! - that you made a dramatic late bid to tempt Jamie O'Hara back - but even he turned you down......!!

Only 40-odd games to go then, all you need is to avoid injuries, suspensions, International call-ups, drops in form, tiredness, loss of confidenc......................

have a nice day, now...........;-)

We Only Need One Half!

Another one CR who wants to converse with supporters who's team plays in the big boys league, why do they bother?

Like I keep telling these Mystic Megs, only thing certain at this stage is we will finish above them, yet again.

Let me explain One Half.....

If you finish 3rd from bottom of the prem and we finish 6th in the championship (i.e. 9 places below you) get promoted via the playoffs, then we will be in the prem and you will be in the championship next season, and therefore below us the next time we play competitive football .....

......"you could finish upto 9 places above us and still end up below us".......

.... understand, it ay rocket science.

UTW

We Only Need One Half!

Hyacinth, no, because it doesn't make sense, does it?????

We could finish bottom of the Prem, and regardless if by some miracle you finished top of The Championship, the record would still show for season 14/15 we finished above you.

Its not that difficult for you to grasp is it????

The View From Baggy Bottom

The pack has been shuffled and we've been dealt our cards. Now our eyes dart through the hand before us, looking for priles, pairs and flushes so that we can win enough tricks to stay in the game. It's a promising hand, but it depends how we play it and how the cards have fallen for the other players. We need to play the game with confidence and a poker face, because we only have a small kitty and can't afford to bluff.

TVFB♥B

youngand hungry

yes mardy and you been dealt a pack of jokers .

Captain Mardon International

Jimmy is the man I'm looking to get going as he is a game changer when at his best.

I am also looking forward to seeing our two new wingers in action. They are so badly needed at the moment, and will add the attacking flare that we have lacked for some time. Amalfitano IMO was a good tricky player, and was good at what he did. Sadly a tad to inconsistent though. Our new south American boys should inject some pace in to our game. I'm quite excited.

Naturally Lescott is an absolute must when he's fit. Olsson looks like he's out of sorts at the moment, and needs someone to depend on.

I am confident like Jimmy that we have the right players to carry us through this season in the Premiership.

Up the baggies!

THEGREENMAN

Contrary to what many have said about the international break coming at the right time, if we are losing around 10 players to international duty, whether they play or not, it only serves to disrupt our preparations for the Everton game in a couple of weeks time. It will indeed benefit those not on international duty who aren't yet fit, or are carrying injuries, but as regards working on systems/technical work, we will be in a worse position with so many players missing. While it's great to have so many international players, it does bring it's downsides as well.

I thought that TGM, while it's a bit of help to us in getting players fit, it's just the same for every other team.

Afternoon young and hungry, I joined this site two weeks ago and very much enjoy the good banter between the Baggies and sensible Dog Heads, you appear to be a mischievous little begger but enough about that.

You're continuing thread regarding the Baggies possible relegation is boring and does you no credit but IF IF IF IF IF that scenario eventuated we Baggies supporters could console ourselves with the knowledge that we would have 6 points in the bag for our promotion push because you Dog Heads ain't coming up this time around.

Hi Barry,

welcome to the site, haven't noticed you before, but it's good to have you on board-

I guess you've already sussed things out concerning our 'visitors'? - the decent, intelligent, friendly guys like Stokie and DancesWithWolves, also the idiotic babbie and obsessed Jackett, who specialises in nasty, sarcastic personal insults - Bilston gutters spring to mind.....

Anyway, let's hope we all have a good season ahead as the Baggies squad starts to settle and gel, then I'll maybe come over and have a beer with you - I'll buy the booze if you pay for the flight!!........;-)

All the best, my friend.

Evening Rocket, thanks for the welcome and as for the beer I have a better idea, lets get together last home game and celebrate the Baggies staying where we belong and the Dog Heads staying where they belong, thanks to all who welcomed me on board,

yer on mate -

Kev the Rev in LA

Cantello

Re your welcoming of Barry.

I wouldn't have bothered had you not had a little dig with " so I'm not even attempting to advise you".

Advise him to do what exactly? encourage the "idiotic babbie and obsessed Jackett" and others by replying with the same jibes over and over again, taking up to 75% of thread throwing childish taunts at Dingles while,as many have said and done, driving valued Baggies away.

I've ask if he would join in our attempt in trying the only action that has not been tried yet cause your solution of trying, and failing I might add, to humiliate them with supposedly humorous replies doesn't seem to be working, how long has it been so far?

You mention six different people, and yes your correct but as has happened recently people come to realize the way they have chosen is not working, so instead of stubbornly resisting change they decided to try another solution, which may or may not work but at least they've tried another option, which for the life of me I cannot understand why, is something you won't.

By the way I remember having a discussion with you about new posters not knowing the in's and out's of these boards and you said you always reply to them advising them on the said in' and out's, which my friend is exactly what I have done, but for some reason you've thrown a little slur on the practice???

If we carry on trying your sides solution Barry will have nobody to talk too.

Kev the Rev in LA

Good Morning Barry

Welcome too our little fun house.

It hasn't always been like this, it use to be much more fun, we still raise a titter now and then when we're talking too each other, even with a few Dingles.

Obviously your aware of our little disagreements, not the footballing side of things, that's normal differences of opinion in any group of supporters.

It's the other unmentionable and I know you've succumbed once but I'm appealing from one side of the fence for you too join us in our campaign too clear the vermin from Baggies sites?

Our quest has received a boost of late with the arrival of a few deserters from the other side, I say deserters but they're fans who are fed up with these boards being taken over with inane , childish responses too Dingles who's sole aim is too get Baggies fans dangling on a string, so they are trying the only option left which is total abstinence from replying.

I cordially invite you too join us in an effort too attract more posters while also attempting too stem the flow of valued posters abandoning these boards cause of said problem.

Again welcome

in other words bazza would you like to join the committee .

Thanks Kev, you make good sense with what you say, I have just sent a reply to y & h which will be my last response to the drivel posts.

It's a pity we will have so many players away on international duty as this will disrupt the plans to integrate the new players and also get them match fit., onwards and upwards with the Baggies.

sorry if I have upset you bazza , I really am , i apologize unreservedly .

barry.cox.52459

Morning JtH, sensible post that and we will have a better idea of where we are after the international break where we will be tested with some quality opposition both home and away.

Hopefully the coach will have most of the new players available with which to choose from and hopefully we will see a positive attacking attitude towards the opposition and not a sit back and defend and try to catch them on the break game, it's an old saying that the best form of defense is attack and if the new signings play to their respective potential AI has the ingredients for an exciting go forward and entertaining team at the Baggies.

Onwards and upwards always

youngand hungry

cant shut you up now can we .

Stourbaggie

Mozza is right we have a squad that should do ok in the Perem.but coaching staff that are woefull at best.If we lose the next three games they should go.

Captain Mardon International

I disagree. I am very critical of Alan Irvine, but accept he needs more than 3 games to get our newly developed squad performing to their potential. Let's say mid November we are still in a bad position then action needs to be taken.

Perhaps it's Downing who is a problem?

The Real Bully Hoo.

Ahoy Captain.

Perhaps it's the tea lady but unless anybody knows anything definite perhaps we ought to get Hercule Poirot in and he could eliminate everybody until he reveals who the guilty party is and we hang him or her.

Or then again it could just be that we have a lot of new players many of them not fully fit yet and they need a bit of time to get up to pace.

Captain Mardon International

Wodoh Bully, I think you have to read my post again mate. I am encouraging fans to give him time get them playing together

youngand hungry

mardy only because the committee have brain washed you .

The Real Bully Hoo.

I wasn't talking about AI although 3 months isn't exactly generous, where does he need to have us by November to pass the test?

I was talking about why you've had a go at Downing, do you know something and if you do why not share it with us? He seems to be the victim of a whispering campaign.

Captain Mardon International

Bully, I see what you mean. I don't know of any problems with Downing, I just thought perhaps his methods doesn't bode well with Alan Irvine's? It wasn't finger pointing as such, just a mere suggestion.

I would expect us to be in good way 3 months from now, that IMO is enough time to get our players doing as Mr Irvine wants.

ELDERVO

That's assuming poirot would be fit enough of course TW.

baggy8oy

El-Capitan, we'll know by Xmas thats for sure, I still think thats not long enough for them though!..

New Broseley Baggie 2

By all accounts Irvine is supposed to be top notch with regard's to coaching.He deserves time.My main concern regarding the backroom staff is Downing and how much power he seems to have regarding decisions,either in tactics or substitutions.Against Oxford,it looked to me like he chose the 1st sub without so much as even consulting AI.

Far too often under Clarke we looked terrified to attack teams,on Saturday again we looked terrified.With SC gone,IMHO,i think these tactics are coming from Downing,not AI.

baggy8oy

Interesting comment... I thought that at the Sunderland game, kind of sensing too many chefs spoiling the broth, the subs seemed a pressured response from Downing & lost us the game I thought.... Coaching & prepping for games is one thing, inspiring & mentoring half a squad of foreign players is another, it takes a special kind of leader to be able to do that, I'm not sure he's a Mourinho but only time will tell.... We have to support him & get behind him either way... ATiD

New Broseley Baggie 2

For the Sunderland game i was sat in the Woodman and did not notice.But for Oxford i sat in the East stand right opposite and saw clearly what Downing did.If results go wrong it will be AI who loses his job and gets all the blame,so he should be the one who makes these decisions.Downing it seems,is safe no matter what.Hardly fair.

After reading your post it struck me that the serious disease you speak of is very similar to the serious disease which has infected Baggies sites in epidemic proportions over the last 12mths or so. In your guide to a cure I'm sure it contains information informing the best action too take in order too eradicate the disease.

Quite rightly your advice if taken will cure the problem but from my own experience people will ignore good advice and limp along trying their own cures, which clearly have no affect on the disease, but they stubbornly refuse till eventually others leave for fear of infection and every thing around them dies.

The thing is fellow baggies, my posts got binned again, now, for me , the magnificent 7,i.e. Dunge- rhys, KARL Klampett , etc. , coming over here, because we lost to The Swans, had a orgasm, non stop. lol. The irony of the whole thing was that, they all support a club in a league lower than us, get it, a whole league. (Looking up at us, it must hurt them, I don't know why, Villa are our proper rivals.) One they dropped into, then fell out off again lol and now find themselves back in it, So for me it was a no-brainer to take any notice what so ever from so called posters from a club lower than our league. Especially on that Saturday, if this was the case we would be having childish spats , say with Yeovil, or Northampton Town, Swindon town fans on here would we not, They are not our rivals either, as in the real rivals of ours are Villa. The Dingles came out in force, well 3 or 4 of them to show us how bad we are, how mossive they are, etc, I could understand if we were in the same league, I game to go, season over, but in reality it was our 3rd game lol, lol, but the simple fact is, if it hadn't escaped there attention, is that we are not in the same league, not today, not tomorrow. They berated us for the word Hope, hope is all they have, they hope we get relegated, they hope they get promoted, they wished we hadn't battered them, they wished not to double drop, they wished they were in the EPL, oh dear, here's for all that hoping and wishing. Its like for eg, Watford sit on top of their respective division, I ask you, did some Hornet fans run over to the Arsenal, Spurs Chelsea, or West Ham forums and say pathetic things like, we will pass you on the way up, etc er no, probably not. Yer in our shadder- ack.

Capey,

well I can only guess some would call it natural ability mate, because from where I'm standing, it looks like all the 'usual suspects' are accusing you of being stupid, yet you've somehow managed to get 'em hot-footin' it over here, twitchin' violently - as in a fast-forwarded 'arry Redknapp - and very clearly dangling off yer needle-point hook-

indeed, a sight to behold.......

Albion and Irvine will be fine once all the players get up to full fitness and start to gel.

Probably take several more weeks yet though so it could be a bumpy ride.

Irvine could be in charge for the next 3 months or the next 3 years, who knows, but no manager lasts forever, I just hope Downing is long gone well before Irvine. Don't ever want him anywhere near 1st team manager job again, even as caretaker.

Sly, sneaky little git...... In my opinion.

IMO I don't think it's the players we have got worry about or irvines coaching it weather he plays the right formation to suit the players as Man U are finding out now look at the players they have but with a formation that don't work then ur hitting ur head up a brick wall ,look what Roy did for us with the likes of metie we survived so with what we have now we have got the players to improve as long as we play the right formation

ELDERVO

Brilliant post !

Hi Jay, good point and hopefully we will see a positive attitude and formation that will bring attractive attacking football back to the Hawthorns this season and beyond.

Morning bazza , you mean you can make head to tale of it ?

CantelloRocket 78

Well when Irvine's got certain players fully in use - who're either currently unavailable, or still gradually pushing for full fitness - he'll have two more very experienced central defenders, a no-nonsense strong left-back, a fast attacking right back, two new natural wingers, and at least four strikers to choose from-

forgive me if I'm wrong, but that may help him out a bit, and maybe give him a few more options......??

Every team strive to have a fully fit and integrated squad to start off a new season, a lot depends where and when they shop for their new recruits. We chose to go for a mixture of overseas internationals ( mainly ), solid and experienced professionals and a young loanee from Liverpool.

With the World Cup happening during the summer, this was a distraction for us, and a host of other clubs, due to the inability to seal deals as quickly as we would have liked. Having signed several overseas internationals, although some of them got game time in the World Cup, once it was all over and they had a holiday break, these factors left us in the position we are in now regarding fitness.

It's more than obvious that some players let themselves go a little, like a lot of people, when they are on vacation, so it's little wonder that they take time to get up to the required levels needed.

I know you realise all this, but it is evident that some fans must think that players, once signed are fit and ready for action.

I agree with your comments regarding the strength of our squad once all fit and look fwd to seeing how we develop. Irvine will then be able to put his plans into full swing.

Roll on the Everton game. I guess it will be a bit quiet on here for the next couple of weeks without any football action, but I'm sure we'll find something to talk about.

TGM,

yes my friend, life can be very easy to put right in a logical, theoretical way inside our heads, but when you work in practical situations in the physical world, they can be a damn sight harder, and more complex!!

If only the 'I want it all, and I want it now' brigade could open their eyes wide enough to see that......

youngand hungry

greeny more chance it will be quite after the Everton game , just as it was after the Swansea game .

The Real Bully Hoo.

Good post Rocket as is the reply TGM.

I saw a post the other day saying something along the lines of, 'they're professional sportsmen, they should always be ready to play.'

Ignoring the fact that every manager from Mourinho to Wenger to Fergie has always emphasised the importance of the pre-season training. But no doubt propping up the bar in the Rose and Crown qualifies the bloke to know so much more than those beginners.

CantelloRocket 78

Many Managers and Head Coaches take over when they're required - it could be at any point in time, they then have to work with what they have, and get the best from what's available to them - if they stay around long enough, they can then gradually shape things to their own style and design-

it's much like life itself, you often find yourself having to deal with what's in front of you, circumstances don't suddenly grind to a halt, and instantly fit into your requirements - to believe that is extremely naive.

Although there's no shortage of armchair critics arrogantly blasting hot air as 'know-it-alls'.........

CantelloRocket 78

That was a response mainly to unwanted 'guests' by the way, not to our more sensible posters.......

ELDERVO

That would be true if it wasn't for the fact that these players have been brought in after irvine was appointed. Here's the new striker we've got for you Al, well actually it's a video of some of his best bits.

Name me one other coach in the prem who hasn't picked his own new players comming in.

Beggars belief.

ELDERVO

So basically you're saying that Irvine has to change his way of thinking, systems and tactics to suit the players that have been brought in for him by someone else? No wonder he's quote, "frustrated".

Mel had the same problem, players that couldn't play the way his style demanded. Perhaps you should let the players decide the system as he did, Irvine could then be freed up to help traffic warden who to park the cartels morris marina fleet on match days.

.... if he's fit enough that is. lol.

Alternatively you could just HOPE there's three more worse teams in the prem again this season.

Personally I agree that we have a solid team from back to front the only thing I am frustrated with is fitness, we are a established Premier League Club with very good facilities and I am disappointed that we are struggling to get players fit, I understand the issue but we cannot be the only club. I reserve my judgement on Irvine because he does not have the full squad available because brunty is past it and Dorrans can barley string two passes together, I fully expect them both to be dropped for the Everton Game (pending we have fit players).

capehill

WBP, I agree, however fitness will not come overnight, 12 new players, they will feature sooner rather than later. New players, new club, new country for some. Things will take time to settle, the coaches have a plan, their tactics, their scouts, and their way of helping the players understand, assimilate, and carry out their chosen tactics. After the int break, the fitness issues hopefully will not be a problem, as other posters have mentioned, there are some exciting players waiting in the wings, all the coaching team have to do is nurture and reassure these players, instil confidence, and make the training ground a enjoyable place to be. The rest will come , boing boing

ELDERVO

Ah bless, there's always hope.

barry.cox.52459

Morning Eldervo, I see a lot of comments with regards to the word hope and most of them aimed at the Baggies.

Surely every team in the world start their season with hope as do their supporters it makes no difference what standard of football you play it could be schoolboy or the premier League the same thing applies to all HOPE.

I hope that the Baggies have a great season, I hope my son has a great time snowboarding next week with his college I hope that this week my wife and I win the lotto in all aspects of life we have hope.

My hope as a midlands football follower in general is that one of these seasons we have the big six back in the premiership that includes you the Dog Heads. Up the Baggies. Bazzaboy97.
