West Brom Squad Only Have Themselves To Blame For Relegation
Alan Pardew’s parting of ways with West Brom didn’t surprise me at all.
West Brom Woes
The Baggies are down and they now have to try and regroup and get themselves settled for next season to have a good push at getting back into the Premier League.
If there was one other man that would have gone in at the stage of the season that Pardew went in, is Tony Pulis. Of course he’s having decent enough success at Middlesbrough but overall it just hasn’t worked out and that’s the way it goes in football.
Pardew will be back further down the line somewhere. The squad didn’t respond to what he was doing with them on the training ground so that’s why they’re in the position that they’re in and that’s why they’re going down.
West Brom need to draw a line under it now and look to next season and getting some confidence back in the side.
Reds For Champions League
The Champions League winner will come from the Liverpool v Man City ties. The way they have both been playing they can definitely hurt any side.
Of course Real Madrid will be strong. They’ve gradually got better as the season has went on and at this stage of the season how good they’ve looked defensively and how good they are from an attacking point of view, they’ll be difficult to stop also.
I actually fancy Liverpool.
I think they’ll beat Man City across the two legs and will spring a surprise on everyone by winning the Champions League.
I think Liverpool v Real Madrid would be a great final. With the firepower and players that Liverpool possess, it would make for good viewing having them in the final.
I don’t see Roma or Sevilla having a severe impact in the quarter-finals but any of the other six sides have a very realistic chance of making it to the final. Liverpool are a great price at 12/1 with BoyleSports to win the tournament.
