.......guaranteed to score goals at Championship level, but too much of a gamble with injuries to consider as long term in the Premier. Mowbray knew it and so does Phillips.
Personally, I would have paid him what he wanted to stay at the Albion, he was a major part in our success and deserved the reward. Apart from the goals, he is a big morale booster in the dressing room and surely we could have found him a role in the coaching setup if he'd wanted it.
Anyway, best of luck for the season from a Baggie.

"We haven't won any players against the likes of Birmingham because he won't pay the wages."
If you're referring to Rowan Vine, then it was Mowbray who wasn't prepared to go his own valuation of the player, not JP. Paying over the odds for January transfer window players is not good business, it smacks of desperation. All this talk of "Peace should go" is ridiculous.
I hope Peace stays for a good stretch, we will have financial stability and in Mowbray we have a manager who wants to play flowing football. Anyone who things TM is the same sort of manager as Robson needs their head examined.

The most expensive go-faster stripes in the country.
As the Arthur Daley car lot is being cleared, can't we throw Ellington in with the deal for a round 10 million? I know the gearbox is a problem, but we've thrown a bit of sawdust in and hopefully he'll run for a month before anyone notices.

Amazing how everyone with a habit/substance abuse problem these days is the victim of bad genes. Bad genes my arse, he was a pisspot. Drinking, like smoking and any other number of habits is exactly that... a habit. As far as I am aware, the only people who genuinely cannot deal with alcohol because of a physiological problem are North American indians, as they (genetically) lack the enzyme to break down the alcohol in the way that everyone else does.

I agree 100%.
I'm rather worried that we have a kid as a captain, and one who seems to want to moan that expectations are high, rather than get stuck in. Maybe Curtis would enjoy life more while warming the subs bench somewhere, like Kuschzak does at Man U?
I've got news for Curtis - no matter where you play, expectations will be high. Fans demand nothing less than 100% effort and commitment. If you can't give 100% or aren't up to the challenge, clear off somewhere else mate.
The real class players we had years ago like John Wile, Jeff Astle, Bomber Brown, Super Bob, Cyrille Regis etc. just got stuck in and gave nothing short of 100% every time they played.
