West Bromwich Albion
August 29, 2010

Look at me, I can do a liveblog.

Chelsea were okay, Manchester United weren't much better, Spurs lost at home and Arsenal only just scraped past Blackburn. In short, it's time for one of English football's big teams to step up. It's Anfield, it's coming off the back of a big win in the cup, it's West Brom's time to shine (you'll realise what The Blog's done there and you'll think: "oh, The Blog's good, It's very, very good")

Racism is horrible: to use more elaborate phraseology is to soften the sentiment. The issue has appeared on West Brom's agenda for the first time in This Blog's memory following the arrival of Peter Odemwingie from Lokomotiv Moscow, which prompted a group of Lokomotiv’s fans to create a banner celebrating his exit, using a banana as a pretty appalling, derogatory reference to his race.

Seven days after a humbling defeat to Chelsea, West Brom bounced back to winning ways against Sunderland courtesy of a goal from debutant Peter Odemwingie.

Rest assured the promised post mocking the fool that is Ethan Dean-Richards will come soon, but today is about West Brom vs Sunderland. Why is The Blog not at the game? Becasue It doesn't have a season ticket this time around, due to an immenent change of scenery. Now, enjoy:

Hello and welcome to The West Brom Blog: you are the reader, This is The Blog. Eventually we will strike up some kind of rapport, but writing this at 1:55AM, there is no time for that. Instead, onto a brief, poor analysis of West Brom's probable starting XI.

These positions are unpaid, but the Correspondents pages provide all you zealots with the opportunity to write about your club's journey through the season. Our readers can follow your rollercoaster ride of emotions through post-match euphoria and dejection, then debate all the bias that comes with football.

David Young Matthew Evans: I've supported West Brom all my life, and it's fair to say that they give me my fair share of ups and downs. I'm always guaranteed an emotional rollercoaster of a season whatever division the Baggies are in. I try to remain positive in my views on Albion, although that is impossible at some points. My favourite Albion player of the moment is Youssuff Mulumbu, and of my lifetime it has to be Super Bob Taylor.You can follow me on twitter @MattEvansWBA
