FanZone verdict - West Brom

22 June 2009 04:35
West Brom FanZoner Alex Skidmore reveals his best (and worst) from the club's 2008/09 season. PLAYER OF THE SEASON: Chris Brunt BIGGEST WASTE OF SPACE: Paul Robinson BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE SEASON: 3-0 vs Sunderland DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT PEOPLE IN CHARGE?: I thought we did until Tony Mowbray left, now I'm worried as Jeremy Peace's record when it comes to managerial appointments hasn't been too great. BEST THING ABOUT YOUR CLUB: The fact we've not sold out to a foreign owner and aren't reliant on a sugar daddy. we continue to progress in the right way, even if it is a little bit sideways. WORST THING ABOUT YOUR CLUB: The fact we can't attract a wealthy foreign owner or a local sugar daddy so we have to continue to yo-yo between the top flight and the Championship. TARGETS FOR 09/10: Elbow some of the under-performing players like Robinson, Meite, Valero and Moore, and rebuild a new team around our more promising, hungrier, young players that combines the attractive football we've now come to expect with a little more grit and determination. REALISTIC IN'S AND OUT'S:Outs: Roman Bednar, Marek Cech, Marc-Antionne Fortune, Carl Hoefkens, Kim Do-Hyeon, Sherjill MacDonald, Abdoulaye Meite, Pedro Pele, Paul Robinson & Borja Valero Ins: Simon Cox, Daniel Fox, Marvin Elliott, Juan-Carlos Menseguez, Yusuff Mulumbu, Andrew Surman, James McCarthy, Zheng Zhi & Ross McCormack WHY I HAVE/HAVEN'T RENEWED MY SEASON TICKET: Despite our chairman announcing we have to sell before we can buy, despite our manager leaving us for some Scottish amateur division, and despite many of our better players being linked with moves away from the club, I've renewed my season ticket because I'm eternally optimistic, and a complete and utter mug. WHICH GAME CAN'T YOU WAIT FOR AND WHY?: With Blues and Wolves both going up, there's no derby games this year.
