    West Brom sign Lescott

    Rumors of Rodwell are rife too - has the unpopular appointment of Irvine actually been a master stroke with the link for ex-Everton players becoming apparent?

    Fellaini next anyone?

    He's a good shout - was surprised because of his Wo1ve5 link, but I'd overlook that so long as he performs.

    Nope. That said Albion fans are more fickle than ever these days so a couple fo decent signings and we'll hail Irvine as being the next SIr ALex before we've even kicked a ball...

    Relegation beckons and we'll be bottom by xmas.

    Burton seems to rate him, and I've not heard a bad word against Burton from anyone - maybe Irvine has literally just been brought in for his coaching skills, and the management been left elsewhere.

    I believe the blame likes firmly with Peace - he is devaluing the club so that he can up his control to 75% cheaply.

    I'm just sick of doing things on the cheap. Personally I don't think Sherwood would have good for us but then I find it hard to believe that Irvine was the next best option.

    It does seem that the set up we have in place isn't the traditional 'manager' role - he's not likely to identify many of his own transfer targets.

    And just to top it all off... eff'in pinstripes!

    I'm not buying a top this year unless we have brought back the Yellow and Green stripes!

    Better still - Bobby Goulds' Yellow and Red kit!

    yeah it wasn't the best. I liked the Black one a few seasons ago - was quite smart.

    Any ideas on sponsors next season? Can't say I've heard anything on that.

    Great signing for the Baggies, although he's a left-footer like Olsson - will be interesting to see how they set up (I can't think over many teams who play two left-sided centre backs.

    Gardner is a good signing for them too, but they're in desperate need of some full-backs with Ridgewell, Reid and Jones all gone.

    Don't mix them up.
