White flag protest Monday night
Plans are underway for some kind of protest at The Hawthorns next Monday night at our final home game of the season. With our relegation to the Championship almost complete fans want to use the last home game of the season against West Ham to make their feelings known towards the board.
Fans are being encouraged to bring white flags to wave in mass protest against the way we have surrendered our position in the Premier League without any fight. Last season the players pulled off the Greatest of Escapes and created Premiership history by becoming the first team to beat off relegation after being bottom of the league at Christmas.
This season has seen little in terms of improvement in terms of the squad and many feel it has been a lost opportunity to build even further. The main culprits are the Baggies board headed by Chairman Jeremy ‘I’m off on holiday’ Peace and Bryan ‘I love playing one up front Robson.
Albion look certain for relegation, needing a miracle to pull off survival, the Baggies lie 6-points from safety with two games remaining, needing Portsmouth and Birmingham to lose both games they have left. Not only do we need them both to lose we need to score more goals, which does not look likely.
Portsmouth face Wigan at the JJB Stadium on Saturday and Blues face Newcastle at St Andrews, both teams have improved over the past few weeks whereas Albion have been poor, turning in one of their worst performances of the season at Newcastle last weekend in such an important game.
Albion could be relegated before kicking another ball as both Pompey and Blues both play on Saturday, Albion playing the Hammers on Monday night. Albion will be hoping that Pompey lose at Wigan and Blues fail to beat Newcastle to take it to the last day of the season but the way we are playing at the moment I really don’t think it would matter. Albion have looked poor and a win looks a long way off, poor team selection at St James Park meant that we just rolled over and set ourselves up for a fall.
Robson has now more or less admitted that we are down and he has to take responsibility for how we have gone down, no fight and poor selections. He played weakened teams at the bigger clubs and for the first 10 games of the season we all thought he was selecting the team out of a hat.
Now the time has come for action, Monday night we should be relegated after the weekends results and we need to make ourselves heard. A number of different options have been put forward but the one that seems to have grabbed everyone’s attention is the white flag option.
Another option was to be silent when the teams come out or even turn your back to the pitch as the teams lined up. All of these are an option but the white flag for surrender is an eye-catching option for the Sky camera’s that will be present; it works at Barcelona and is a peaceful way of venting your frustrations.
We have lined up to be shot and the white flag is the best way to show that the manager and the board have surrendered.
So Monday night bring your flags, pillow cases, tea towels etc. to wave in protest at the way your club has surrendered its position in the Premiership. Monday night 8 o’clock at The Hawthorns be ready to vent your frustrations in a peaceful manner.
I must add if we are still not mathematically down by the time the game comes, we MUST put the protests ON HOLD, for the sake of the club, it’s only a small possibility and I do not believe we stand a chance but funnier things have happened, for a start Wolves actually got promoted.
PLEASE SUPPORT WHAT WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO DO ON MONDAY, IT IS THE ONLY WAY WE CAN GET OUR FEELINGS ACROSS TO THE MAN THAT MATTERS, HE HAS OUR CLUB AND WE MUST MAKE HIM SEE THE WAY FORWARD.
ALL GO DOWN TOGETHER, with Robson in charge we are not going to come back up, no ideas, no tactics, no hope, ROBSON OUT!
