Our Albion man Terry Wills fears the curse of the returning striker.
No great surprise seeing that they’re challenging for a top four finish and a place in next seasons Champions League and Albion at the very best are hoping to qualify for Thursday night football in the quaintly named Europa League.
Plus points at Stamford Bridge? A tremendous international class display from Ben Foster who must now be odds on to be recalled back into Roy Hodgson’s England squad. A welcome return for Peter Odemwingie after coming on as a substitute to look our most likely looking scorer.
All in all what could be termed a solid looking team performance which as the game wore on actually looked as if it could snatch a point. Steve Clarke was subject to criticism from both the media and supporters for not being more positive, the feeling being that a less cautious approach COULD have paid dividends.
This week it’s Swansea at the Hawthorns. A team playing very attractive football and rapidly becoming a real thorn in Albion’s side. Since gaining promotion they’ve yet to drop a point when playing us. Here’s hoping this will be put to rest and we can consolidate our virtual mid-table position.One final ‘horrible ‘ thought, though. Luke Moore, remembered as being one of Albion’s worst-ever buys returning and playing a blinder and even worse scoring a winning goal….
Please. It must not happen.
Come on you Baggies.
