at this point they would have to win 7 of the remaining 9 games to finish on 41 points

5 wins would put them on 35 points.

whilst its still mathematically possible, there is no chance.

They are down mate, I work with a season ticket holder and most of their players have given up, what is more interesting is what will happen next season. I have doubts over their owners ambitions, I think he payed £150 million for them and they will be worth less than a third of that after relegation, those parachute payments may be getting siphoned off and there may be a few lean years ahead for the poor dears

It's ironic, Peace ran a good ship for years and they were buoyant, then as soon as he decided to cut and run, all that good work will be for nought.

Shows the fragility of modern football - and it is increasingly so....

Just ask the supporters of Portsmouth, Blackburn, Leeds.... All dancing with the big boys and toying with top 6 and Europe.... and then....

That is why, as always in life, one should be kind whilst on the way up to those on the way down.... cos you never know when the escalators will reverse....

(That said - it is hard to watch the present demise of Blues & Baggies and Potters (and the wasting of money at Villa attracting non-re-saleable old crocks and paying fortunes in wages) without a glimmer of satisfaction after all the tough recent years for Wolves fans!)

Gravity catching up with them finally. Pulis was a big mistake, hard to change styles so dramatically.

Looking at Southampton, Stoke and West Brom's line ups at the weekend. Pretty poor, bodes well for when we go up.

Interesting goings on alleged at The Hawthorns. I don't have an issue about the gay players having a relationship (if it's true) but the African player putting up posters about it on religious grounds (if true) is summat to be derided.

It's a rocky sea the good ship Albion is sailing and if they want rid of Hardpoo then it's going to be a real baptism of fire for his successor if the rumours are true.

When you accept a huge contract to play for a club you join a team. If your actions off the pitch affect the team as a whole on it, then you should be prepared to modify them.

Personal preferences are just that. Yours and yours alone. Join a Team and you should be prepared to work for that team's success. Perhaps keeping your sexual or religious feelings in the locker or left at home, the way forward if you wish to remain in that team.

I've since discovered that the incident(s) date back over ten years. The allegations were made by Karl Hoefkens who played for Stoke and Albion between 2005 and 2006 and his comments refer to a Prem team he played for...so it could also have been Stoke being the team in question.

However, it's all old news.

they are down, my baggies mate has said they are down around 5 matches ago. they just really don't look like turning it around. and there's an awful lot of average teams in the prem this year.

the point about Peace is spot on, careful what you wish for methinks.

You really would have thought they would have sacked Pardew by now. With their present financial hardship its looking like they cannot afford to pay him the necessary compensation he would e due. Which means they are waiting to be relegated when probably clauses in his contract will kick in and make him much cheaper to dispose of.

Yes they can let him go for nothing at the end of the season, binning him now would mean paying compensation, and it's too late for a replacement to come in and do anything with that shower anyway

I never thought I'd write this, but they would have done better with Megson, but they didn't, and the world is a better place for it.

I reckon that McCarthy will leave Ipswich at the end of the season and take over at The Shit.... :shock: :roll:

Mick is leaving Ipswich, and would be perfect for Albion on a budget.
But I still have love in my heart for Mick, so please don't do it.

Time for Mick to retire, even the Championship has moved on a few technical levels to what Mick can produce.

Can't really see the point of flying a small plane over Sandwell to gloat. A bomber, certainly. A banner just shows no ambition. I thought we were better than that ?

I thought the two Wolves chaps taking a slash on the Hawthorns centre spot, after a game, was more classy.

Mick has won promotion from this league twice. He's stuck with a crap Ipswich side with little money to spend but has still managed to get them top half. He ain't done yet.

When I saw Mick and his missus the once, I fancy she likes a bit of sun, as she looked like she'd been dipped in Cuprinol. Perhaps retirement to the Costas could be the best option.
