  1. West Brom away kit. Classic yellow and green, and they even changed the badge and sponsor colours. Might even pick up a shirt for once.
  2. Talking of managers, all signs point to West Brom hiring Slaven Bilic as their new boss. Only three months after we sacked Darren Moore. Why it has taken so long I don't know. Bilic seems fine, I don't have a problem with it. Would have thought Houghton would have been a better bet, not like we are going to have much money to spend to replace a half depleted squad as all the loans return. Kept reading in the local paper about the Sheff Utd boss being a contender. Something about a court case involving the two owners. Anyone have a better perspective about what on earth is going on at a club that just got promoted?
  3. If/when this ever comes to Apple/Android I'm ruined. Seems practically made for tablet play as it is. I always struggle more with the Silent. I always seem to take a while to get up and rolling. Meanwhile I can get a lucky card with Ironclad and Defect and be away. The Dark orbs can seem a bit meh, but a good dualcast and everything dies. Alternatively getting all the block like the picture a few posts up is tremendously satisfying. If you want a series to watch I'd suggest Rhapsody on Youtube. He started his series again from episode 1 on full game release, and for the first few eps goes into a little bit more depth on the relics and his decisions.
  4. Well fuck. Cannot really begrudge that. Maybe a few ref quibbles over the two legs but you get two sent off and let Villa have that much possession you are gonna struggle. Best of luck to Villa, hope you smash it in the final.
  5. Incredible. That is about our 6th clean sheet of the season. This from a side that finished 4th. I'd still fancy Villa as they have attacking players and penalty takers on the pitch, but who knows. Going to pens when having a man sent off in both legs boggles my mind.
  6. Two strikers and main set piece taker. Plus right now we have no striker on the pitch. So if it goes to pens I expect we will score all of them
  7. Yes, Robson-Kanu kicked out at someone to get himself suspended for both legs. I would like to apologise for this idiot of an announcer. Don't normally have some idiot shouting MAKE SOME NOISE after a sub. Don't usually have flags either.
  8. Fuck sake. One of our most experienced players, once again two stupid yellow cards. Frankly first challenge was a red all day. It's a real tough ask now, I assume it will be holding out for pens if we can manage.
  9. So idiot striker 1/3 sent off for kicking out at someone in the last (nothing) game of the league. Only two strikers left for the big play off double header. What could go wrong? Oh right, idiot striker 2/3 sent off two yellows. One for time wasting after being warned, the other for a downright stupid challenge on the keeper. Oh well, not like we need to score to get to the play off fin...well fuck. Villa had all the possession and most of the chances, we got a lucky goal and a good save off the crossbar. No complaints, it's a big ask at the Hawthorns when we will be forced to change formation due to aforementioned fuckwits. At least this week has shown these two legged semi finals are nice and predictable.
  10. Never underestimate how long you can hold a football grudge. I have still never forgiven Warnock for the shit he pulled at Shef Utd when he pretty much told some of his players to be injured/walk off so the game could be abandoned due to lack of players on the pitch. Cheating little scrote. No issue with Utd, or at the moment Cardiff. I won’t shed a tear if his smug little prick face gets relegated though.
  11. Apparently not. Board are apparently taking it on a game by game basic with option of brining in experienced coach to help current staff (lots of talk about Craig Shakespeare). Coach doesn't know, players don't know. It's like Brexit, only if this shit keeps up we could end up outside the playoffs at the last minute. Pessimistic Brom fan, what a surprise. Bang on about the form though. At this rate everyone will want to play us.
  12. So three games and maybe two/three weeks after Moore is sacked, West Brom have moved all the way up the table to fourth....from fourth. No word about who the next manager is going to be. First team coach currently running the show with whoever he can scrounge together. The board have kindly offered to hire up to three temporary coaches to help him. Yes, this is entirely nuts. There is a very slim chance of automatic which relies on Leeds and Shef Utd fucking up - so that isn’t going to happen. There is now a large gap to 7th, so we are in a holding pattern. No news on new manager, likely going to remain where we are. So what the hell happens in the play offs if Shan takes us up? We will have another Moore situation where you will pretty much have to offer him the job? It seems daft to be moaning, I suppose I’ll have to make do with being an observer till the end of the season. Being a West Brom fan I do expect them to still somehow fuck it all up though.
  13. Well that was a shocking game. Went to Brom Vs Ipswich. How we got away with a point I'll never know. Looked utterly clueless (though 3 out of 4 first choice defenders out). Subs useless. Moore's interview after game had no bearing on reality. Still in play offs though. Then found out he's been sacked. The hell? I assume something gone on behind the scenes or someone already lined up. Sure he has looked a bit out of his depth tactically, but he has had very little money to spend and losing Harvey Barnes was fatal. Sacked though. Absolutely nuts.
  14. Forsaken has pretty much been excellent. A few odd missteps along the way (the latest puzzle, a few time gated quests that are on a three week rotation) and crucible for those that enjoy it has pretty much vanished off the face of the map. (Still no Trials, just a competitive playlist that from all accounts is...sparse). I don’t mind the attempt at the season pass, they are trying a drip feed of content to see how people get on with it. The idea is fine, but it seems to have swung too far towards streamers and people who can play all day. Some of the forge unlock steps are just a grindy mess. It is still great fun to play, the PC lot are mostly still playing it. The content pipeline thing must still be an issue, I mean why not just release year 1 armour again. Then again if you have to reboot a sequel about a year and a half before launch, after having done the same thing with the original you have to look at Bungie, not Activison. It sounds like it needs a new engine, start from scratch. Again. I honestly wonder if they are looking at free to play. Eververse frankly is fine, it is all cosmetics and you can earn stuff in game as well. Don’t know if that would enough to fund them. I cannot see them being able to self publish a physical console release. There is another issue. PC port is excellent, VV did the PC port and helped majorly with Warmind I think. High Moon did at least one of the better strikes (Pyramidium). Sure they have a load of people at Bungie. They must have a chunk working on that new IP the deal financed. Do they have enough people to do a brand new game? Could they make a PC version themselves? Would it be console only? All pie in the sky right now. For all the moaning about Activison forcing Bungie to do this and that...they signed the contract. They knew up front what they expected. It wasn’t like they were blindsided half way through that the deal had changed. They have shown consistently there is at least a core group at Bungie that think they know best what the players want. D2 seemed to roll back a lot of stuff that was good from end of life D1. Hell look at Deej, one of the worst examples of a community manager. Remember all the stuff at D2 launch, things like lying about the XP gain from certain events? I doubt much of that was on Acti. D2 is obviously on the clock now, wonder what they will do come September when they usually have a big content drop/DLC/new game. They still have the IP, which whatever you think is worth something, everyone has an opinion on it. I’d like them to have that clean break, come back with something where they can add content easier and have much stuff to chase (armour especially is very bare bones right now). Do I have much confidence they can do it? Eeehhhhhh.
