    New signing Vegard Forren. I wrote a THING.

    Ice-cool Nordic saviour of our promotion hopes, or defensive Paddy McCourt? I wrote a short piece about our newly arrived reinforcement. Read it here, if you wish...

    As Jim White slammed shut the January transfer window, the Albion looked well stocked defensively. With the meanest defensive in the football league, and a string of clean-sheets in the bag, the back line the bed-rock of a fabulous campaign to date. With no less than four centre-backs of proven Championship quality, and full-back reinforcements on the way, in the imminent returns of Liam Rosenior and Gaeten Bong everything was rosy in that particular part of the garden.

    With the squad now locked down for the remainder of the season, the football gods took umbrage at the calm passage of the Good Ship Albion, and whipped up their storm clouds to test our resolve.

      Dunk's three-match ban would appear to be not just "inventible", but inevitable too!

      I think, but I may be wrong, that it is the cleverest quip I've ever seen on NSC.

      Loved the first line of the song, at the foot of it... buggered if I know how to pronounce the location in said line, though!

      Just when Uwe gets a chance, they sign somebody else. I wonder if he will consider his options ?
      Anyway, he has not always been convincing although other times he has put in a good game. I take what is said about Dunk's discipline record.
      What do I know? I am the one who said it was unnecessary to sign Duffy!

      Uwe has the shirt, and we'll all be absolutely delighted if Forren never needs to play a game. Everyone loves Uwe, right? He seems a great bloke.

      But he's not stupid. We had TWO senior centre-backs to see us through 11 games - one of them on a disciplinary tight-rope, and the other injury-prone. There's not a chance that he'll see this signing as a personal slight.

      Pochettino not picking the Norwegian international defender signed by his predecessor reminds me of Tony Pulis not picking the Belgian international defender signed by his predecessor. If he has as much about him as Pocognoli, he should do us fine.

      Hughton's post-match interview on Player last night made it sound as though Forren is very much signed for cover, so I don't see any reason for Uwe to feel umdermined.

      Mind you, the man himself sounded really ambitious, wanting to get into the team and help Albion to the Premier League.
