'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Robson Has No Regrets

Bryan Robson completed his first year at West Bromwich Albion this week and has reflected on his time at The Hawthorns in an interview with the official site.

He says he had 'experienced most things at Boro with relegations, promotions, cup finals, dealing with foreign players and trying to build a squad which you think is capable of staying in the Premiership' and feels it left him 'better equipped' to take on the job at The Baggies.

Robson took a break from the game after leaving Boro and that helped him come back refreshed and ready for the challenge, also admitting: 'I'd like to be more comfortable in the league than we are but I enjoy running the club and coming in to work with the players and everything that goes with the job - that's why I came back into the game.'

Looks like he has no regrets either, he says he has enjoyed his time at West Brom and feels that he has won the fans over. Adding that although he knew the job was going to be tough and he was aware of all the pressures in football 'I always thought I made the right decision to come back into the game. I was missing it.'

On a positive note, he said 'I feel there is better to come from this squad. We've got some exciting young players who can improve and come on together. If you've got good young lads in your side you can build each summer with just a couple more players. It gives you a better chance of building a team to be successful.'

The 48 year old boss says that West Brom have to return to being more solid this season and says, despite a glittering career as a player, that keeping WBA up last year was his 'best-ever achievement' adding 'I played in great teams, with great players, and the expectation was to win things. That's nice but when I came to this place I looked at all the players and saw nearly everyone of them had had promotions but had mainly been playing their football in the Championship. So, when you keep the club up you know you've done a good job.'

Now he is looking to survival this year in the hopes that next season at this stage the team can be mid table and building on their Premiership status.
