West Bromwich Albion Message Board
I was thinking the other day about why we always have unhappy players @ the albion.
Present Day: Hartson, Davies, Ellington, Robinson, Albrechtson, gera.
In recent Past: Koumas, Kamara, Perry, Kilbane, Hughes, Roberts, Maresca, Carter, mcshane
We never have a content team. Why do you think this is? I understand that some of the players have left for "Better" teams (Coventry, Lee - WHY?) but even players who seem content actually turn out to be desperate to get away (Mcshane)
Do you think it's the fact they have to play in W Brom and train in Walsall caus i'll be honest, if I had to do that I think i'd wanna leave or is there some underlying reason. My dad says it because we have such a heritage as a football club and such high expectations that we tend to suffercate any decent players with our expectations. He also said that this is what will happen to ishmal miller.
What do you lot think?This topic is deleted.
I don't think that Sheffield Wednesday or Nottingham Forrest automatically have wantaways. Industrial cities with similar great heritage.
I do think that we are seen as a club that should do well and have underachieved so there is extra pressure.
I think the location has a lot to do with it; I can give you a job where you get paid thousands a week and have everything you want and live in either Wilmslow/Alderley Edge (where Manchester teams live), North London or Little Aston/Streetly. Which is where I believe the local players tend to live? You choose.
Ishmael Miller is the new Kieron Richardson, will play well but for ulterior motives and probably won't stay.
who cares they end up in #$%$ teams like wigan and fulham let them leave,davies is so overrated let him go to the #$%$ villa,and hartson cannot get fit,also ellington is a one season wonder at a rubbish wigan side get rid of these donkeys who think they are going to better teams.(they are not)
