Consistency is dull. Aspiring towards it: foolish. Dylan doesn't play the old-stuff over-and-over again, because it gets monotonous - I imagine. West Brom don't win all the time, because it gets monotonous - I imagine. My Manchester United friends often say to me that winning the treble was the worst season they've ever experienced because it was too "samey."
Obviously everything in that opening is a joke - I have no friends, for example. West Brom's inconsistency this season is not because they don't want to win every game. Rather, West Brom don't win all the time for a variety of reasons. A list of words summarising their season follows. What fun.

As a mid-season review, I doubt you'll find better. Innovation is a speciality. This is, as one reviewer put it "post-punk football blogging at its best." The reviewer was me and I don't know what post-punk means.
To fill out this piece (of...) though, a note on this piece in the Sun: It is half-heartedly mentioned that Roberto Di Matteo's job might be under threat at West Brom. This is designed to provoke a reaction.
In reality, Di Matteo, having achieved promotion with West Brom and given the Premier League a right good go, is safer in his job than almost any manager in the division. Take my word for it (evidence is overrated.)
