Not Much Peace In Chairman's Odemwingie Comments

Not Much Peace In Chairman's Odemwingie Comments

Albion have now officially confirmed that Peter Odemwingie has not moved to QPR this window, despite all the high-jinks, and now Chairman Jeremy Peace has his say.

A recent piece on wba.co.uk speaks volumes for how the club feel they have been treated by our clearly want-a-way striker and what reads like a part statement/part Chairman's message is at least, to me, very clear.

As for the statement element, it reads.

'Albion can confirm that no agreement was reached with QPR over the transfer of Peter Odemwingie and the striker remains under contract at The Hawthorns. The club were extremely disappointed to witness TV footage of Odemwingie arriving at Loftus Road despite talks between the two sides proving fruitless.'

The statement element again repeats what we already knew, which was that Odemwingie did not have permission to speak to QPR at that, or any, point.

Jeremy Peace then adds himself.

'This evening's developments have brought a conclusion to what has been an unsavoury affair. The only way we would have considered letting Peter leave was if an acceptable offer was forthcoming and if we found a suitable replacement at relatively short notice. Neither materialised and, in the end, the matter became a point of principle as much as anything. Peter has acted wholly unprofessionally. He must now accept the fact he remains under contract for a further 18 months and has to focus on his Albion commitments.'

Many will wonder how that is possible given the bridges that have potentially been burnt and the insults that have been thrown via the beautiful social media medium.

'When I want to do something, I do it,' not only now appears false after his failure to engineer a move, but the context of his tweets weakening his position are clearly true as Peace confirms it became a point of principle.

Ah well, if we all get a Guinness in our systems maybe we can just laugh about this?
