With pre-season training now in full flow for head coach Darren Moore and the West Bromwich Albion boys – well some of them ignoring the two who apparently refused to travel with ongoing speculation in the media about their futures – fans are desperate for some signs of good news.
The Moore effect continues but many fans are getting a little antsy when it comes to the club backing up his efforts given how slow we are in the transfer market, and players we are linked to already agreeing deals elsewhere.

With that being the undercurrent within the fanbase, at least on social media at any rate, a recent interview by youngster Sam Field certainly seemed to give some a boost and a shot in the arm.
Speaking to wba.co.uk Field made a point of talking about Moore and the ‘core values and principles’ that he was continually getting over to the side.
“I’ve known the gaffer for about six or seven years I think. He’s all about morals and principal, his motto is ‘we not me’ and it’s very much like that under his leadership. He has always been the same and I think that’s the best thing about him. I was absolutely delighted for him when he got the job permanently over the summer.”
The 20-year-old went on to say that there were some great relationships with the gaffer in the playing group and he knew it was ‘definitely’ an opportunity for him to impress this year and get his career really up and running despite his tender age and that was his aim as he wanted to be a regular in the starting eleven as the season progresses and we look to bounce back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
Big things are expected from the youngster this year, and fans aren’t just looking at Field to step up and put some more senior colleagues to shame.
I think this is the perfect chance for both Field and Burke to shine for us next season. Golden chance to see what they’re made of.

We got more wantaway players, and no sign of any incoming. Just getting embarrassing now. 2 good targets went elsewhere, through lack of activity from us.

Well atleast there's still one lad at the club I like.

The club are saying a lot indirectly, IMHO.
Can't wait to see Burke and Field play together next season!

What about Ben Foster and Craig Dawson? Seems a lot of discontent in the camp. As good as they are if they don't won't to be there let's get rid ASAP.
