    Albion v West Ham - Match REPORT


    31 Not allowed!
    Happy new season to you all. I wrote a report, should you wish to read it...

    Just under half an hour gone, and that pressure bears fruit. Murray floored by the lumbering Ogbonna, to allow Groß to deliver once more. His flighted ball in beats everybody, but Burn retrieves and swings a cross back in, for Trossard to meet beautifully on the volley, and crash the ball home. Get in! Well deserved. Jubilation around the ground, as the little Belgian is mobbed by his team-mates, including Maty Ryan, after a trademark sprint up the pitch to join the bundle.

    But, with the Albion fans still jumping, and the back-slapping complete, some little toad in a bunker near Heathrow has other ideas. Yes folks, welcome to the golden new age. Computer says no. The freeze frame on the big screen confirms that Dan Burn was just offside as the original free kick came in, and it is the turn of the away fans to celebrate, as if they themselves had scored. Cor blimey guvnor. Would you Adam and Eve it? God bless V A R and the Queen Mum. Wankers.

      Thanks as ever.
      And that stinging drive by Solly March came from his right foot whose only purpose, as we've been so regularly informed, is for standing on.

      Great report as per.

      Only small comment would be I feel you've been a little harsh on Maupay, it came to him at a nasty height and pace from Murray, would've been a superb finish if he had scored.

      Hmmm...

      It wasn't THAT easy, agreed - it was on the half-volley, and rising - but that's where correct technique comes in, isn't it? A really good striker gets over that, tucks it away without fuss, and LOOKS like an easy finish.

      On balance though, 'he'll be disappointed with that (Clive)'

      I’ve got to agree with the first comment that was an awful height and incredibly fast on 2nd and 3rd looks. Would’ve been an incredible finish had he scored it

      Nah. It was 'tricky', at best. You give Sergio Aguero that chance 10 times and he scores 9 of them.

      We can't afford Aguero, but whoever gets into that position in an Albion shirt still needs to be putting chances like that away more often than not.

      Well let’s hope that’s the 1 that he misses and he bags the next 7/8

      He's hit that TOO well.
      People like Coldplay and voted for the Nazis. You can't trust people.
