    Taxi for Robbo

    Goodbye Bryan. Sorry your career is now dead.

    Tip for the future - strikers are meant to score goals.

    • The replacement has to be Mr Motivation, with a large group of wannabes and cast-offs, the new guy has to find 15-18 who can work together and then point them in the right direction. Most of all he has to have something to prove, to himself. Robson had done it all before he arrived and the fire had gone out.

    • I was sitting on the fence with the whole Robbo issue, mainly cos i can't see who we'll get instead !! Curbs would be great but is he gonna come out of retirement for us ???
      As with last season the players have to take their part of the blame for letting us all (including Robson) down. They are so inconsistent ! Silly school boy errors all over the place, and thats even our 'best 11' ! Lets hope who ever gets it (my CV is in the post) can stop these stupid mistakes and continue to build the team into a mighty one.

      • I`ve been a Robson fan all the time he`s been in charge because you have got to get behind the lads who are doing it every week. Now he`s gone which was a shock, he was tactically poor with very few ideas of what players could do to really unlock the defence. He brought players worth millions to the club, but more so he made the good ones stay, if we hadn`t had Robson at the end of the season Davies, Greening, Gera, Robinson etc etc would have all left for sure to Reading and Watford or any other London area club most likely.
        Curbishley is the man and if he comes it would be fantastic, but I don`t see it happening, more likly to get O`leary or Hoddle and damn me theres real ineptitude. How about, and I really hate to say it Sven? Ron Atkinson shouldn`t be let near the club.
        We just got some good players, prepare to lose them if we don`t get the right manager.

      • Coo, a woman who understands football...No wonder she is a Baggies fan! Seriously though, the Baggies can only go forward, now. Let's forget about route one and play the ball out of defence when necessary and give our forwards' and midfield a chance to construct an attack. Pass the ball in triangular moves, thus dragging the opposition out of their positions. Let's all get get behind the team which we support, and show that we deserve to go back into the premiership. (Even with all it's useless one sided referees).

    • As you are probably aware, I thought Robson was the wrong choice from the beginning. I wish him well though. How about giving another ex Albion manager a chance? Ron Atkinson is available and he knows a few things about football. He only lives just down the road in Barnt Green so petrol costs wont be a problem. (Ha ha).

      • You must be joking about getting 'JUDAS' Ron Atkinson back look what he did the last two times he was there!! buggered off as soon as another club made him an offer and then took good players with him!!! I would like to see Alan Curbishley in as he's proved he can take an 'unfashionable' side up and keep them there,while also playing some good attacking football.

    • At last a decision the board can be proad of! 12 months to late but at least Mr Clueless has now gone - just hope the damage he has done is repairable.
