  1. I'm delighted to say that my first season with Stoke will feature European football
  2. Out of the FA Cup, but unbeaten in the league in February and we're 11 points clear at the top and chasing promotion and another title
  3. I made one signing in January, after my keeper put in a transfer request And here he is but the deal to sell Arnett fell through, so I've now got two top quality keepers. Nice problem to have I guess!
  4. A near perfect set of results in January and we're moving clear at the top
  5. Haha! Yeah, but only if I do well with them. If I don't he'll be leading the call to get me sacked!
  6. I'm obviously hoping I get West Brom promoted, but I'm going to be in the Premier League next season anyway, as on 9th January I was offered a job, and they've let me delay my arrival until the summer. At the end of this season I'll be moving to...
  7. Not really, I left a struggling Premier League club to join a club aspiring to get to the Premier League, as I thought a promotion would look better on my CV than a relegation. Given that we're top of the Championship, and Forest are bottom of the Premier League, I think I've done the right thing
  8. We had an unbeaten December and we now top the table by three points
  9. November was almost the perfect month but the defeat to Rotherham meant we missed the chance to end the month top of the table
  10. October was disappointing as we were beaten twice. We could, and should, have had so much more as Southampton came back from 3-1 down in the last 15 minutes, and Swansea won despite us equalising at 2-2 on 85 minutes, and we led Portsmouth 2-0 after just 5 minutes all of which leaves the table looking like this
  11. Scunthorpe are this season's surprise package. Last season was their first back in the Championship, and only their 5th at this level in 20 years, and they barely survived. This season they seem hell bent on ending their Championship stay, by getting promoted to the Premier League. I don't mind if they do, as long as it's not at our expense!
  12. We also went through September unbeaten, even holding leaders Scunthorpe after we went down to 10 men as we ended the month second
  13. Thanks guys. It's been fun so far, and yes, I think Mina will be great, but the WP rules might mean I never get to find out
  14. We managed to do a couple of deals between the start of the season and the transfer window closing, bringing in Chukwu from Hibs for £1.1m and Mina from Southampton for £2.4m However, due to tougher Work Permit rules post-Brexit, I didn't get a permit for Mina as he isn't playing regularly enough for Colombia, so I've immediately loaned him out to CFR Cluj, who were his choice from over 20 clubs who put in loan offers. I have to wait 120 days to apply for another permit, so the likelihood is he won't be seen in a West Brom shirt until at least January
  15. We had an unbeaten start to the league sdeason, but we've been dumped out of the EFL Cup already and we end the first month top of the league
