View from the Baggies

Name: Helen Allport

Current home town:  Great Wyrley    Birthplace: Walsall

How long have you supported your team?  As long as I can remember!

Overview of your club:Favourite thing about your home ground: The seat next to me which is kept free in memory of my dear friend and legend Les James aged 91. His scarf and cap are on his seat every game.

Favourite match played by your team & why:  Still the great escape of 2005! Because we never believed it could happen we just hope it will happen again this season.

Favourite player of all time who played for your club: Super Bob Taylor he was so swift on the ball

About our forthcoming match against you:

Your favourite current player in your squad and why? Craig Dawson. He is all over the pitch so versatile. Works so hard.

Player in your squad we should most fear and why? Unfortunately our squad are poor this season as we see from results.  We don't have anyone who is consistent which is our problem.

Player in our squad you most fear and why? Got to be the Vardy monster ! Hope he has an off day!

Up and coming prospect in your squad? Sam Field a home grown young talent has done well when he's played. 

How do you think you do against us? We have to win no question about it. With no goal scorers it is so hard. 

General Questions:

Where do you think you will finish this season? Hopefully we stay up to fight another season in the premier league but can't see it to be honest.  So disappointing.

What did you think to your transfer activity over the season? Absolutely awful. No good signings and as far as sturridge is concerned he's played one game and 3 mins for his £120k per week! 

Which three teams do you think will be relegated? I got this right last season !!!!! so stoke  (hopefully) palace as I can't stand that ground and Southampton.

Who do you think will win the league? The real team of Manchester. …..City

Any other comments? Well done Matt Davis on keeping this view feature going.
