Ahead of today’s crucial clash with West Brom, Keith Ingham spoke to Paul, a Baggie for over 50 years who's surely enjoying his does season.
How long have you supported West Bromwich Albion and why did you choose them as your team
51 years (1968)
What’s your favourite moment as a fan. Season, game or anything other occasion.
Bradford 2002 1-0 last minute penalty Igor Balis
Tell us about a player that you were proud to have on the back of a shirt, if you didn’t is there one you wished you would have.
Jeff Astle but would not have any name on the shirt as all mercenaries and I’ve got 60 official Albion shirts home and away and not one has a name on the back
What’s your most memorable match playing Leeds.
Probably this season at home 4-1 but maybe 1971 with the “offside’ goal but Clarke was also offside so we won 1-0 anyway with both goals chalked off. RIP Ray Tinkler
Are you happy with your dealings in this summer’s transfer market?
Not really, should have really spent £20 million on Barnes from Leicester instead of loan and built the team around him for seasons to come. Thought he was that good
What’s your realistic aim for the season?
Premiership, no less
Your thoughts on #spygate / EFL Championship this season
They all do it, storm in a teacup. Do it again before 1/3/19 please with some result hopefully
Who are your three to be promoted this season?
Can you name three for relegation this year?
Millwall, Bolton and Ipswich
Who’s your danger man?
Can you tell us about a rising star in the youth ranks?
Prediction and scorers for the game?
1-2 (don’t care who scores)
We’d like to thank Paul for taking the time to answer our questions and wish him the best of luck for next season, this season they’re too close to say it!
