West Brom sent this message to Leeds United as fans reveal concerns


Welcome to BirminghamLive covering all things Albion.

Kemar Roofe talks about West Brom before returning to The Hawthorns with Leeds United on Saturday – and fans are also discussing the upcoming clash championship.

Albion was also highly appreciated by two former players.

This is Baggies news:

Roofe's message

Kemar Roofe says he will be "only one more goal" if he finds a net against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday night.

Roofe is in the red-hot scoring form of the Leeds United climb at the top of the table championship and returns to The Hawthorns for the first time since the departure of this weekend.

The Walsall striker found the net seven times in 10 games on the ladder to lead Marcelo Bielsa to the Premier League.

But, despite spending 16 years of his life in Albion, the scoring of this weekend has no added meaning for the 25-year-old.

He said, "This would be just another goal, no matter what I'm the result of or how it goes, it's just to help the team win."

Fans are not sure

The last time West Brom played Leeds in the At The Hawthorns, they won 4-2 in the battle for managers.

It was on September 30, 2006, when Diomansy Kamara twice became Martín Albrechtsen twice and Kevin Phillips, as Baggies played one hour with ten men.

Geoff Horsfield tried to boost the return of visitors – but he shrunk when Nigel Pearson, who remained in the fired Bryan Robson, defeated Kevin Blackwell, replaced by John Carver.

The clubs meet for the first time in 11 years this weekend when Baggies seems to end four matches without leading matches against the champions.

And among the species does not seem a lot of optimism after defeating Wigan, Derby and Hull and draw with Blackburn.

Here's the taste or what Albion fans are saying.

Dave Chantry: Only one winner can see this game, and that's not us

Grantham Chatterley: 2.0 Leeds I'm afraid

Wayne Nicholls: What kind of team did we have then, compared to today's team

Lee Payne: With ten men, if I remember well, Koumas is shown and played.

John Moore: If we are not 100 cents better than the last 4 games, they can easily win

Ronald Pratt: Depending on whether ALBION wants to win and come back, they are not the last 4 games.

Woody talk

Chris Wood took the lead to the Premier League.

Not only did he travel from New Zealand to the other side of the world in order to be named in England, he traveled up and down the country that built his reputation.

According to the first opportunity that West Brom, spent his formative years on loan, was transferred to Leicester and then Leeds – and now Burnley.

During this time, he maintained links with the West Midlands, which was reinforced only by coming to Birmingham City, another of his former clubs, Garry Monk.

As Leeds leader, Monk realized the potential that Tony Mowbray had convinced him to have shot him for almost a decade.

Here's what his former managers said about him.

Cute day

West Brom included two players who were killed in the First World War by uploading veteran profiles to their first team teams list online.

William Jackson and England amateur Harold Bache are now sitting next to the current stars of the first team to mark the 100th anniversary of the truce.

Jackson, who was born in the middle of April 1894, only represented Albion's lessons before killing him in action in May 1917 while serving as second lieutenant in the West Yorkshire region.

Bache, born in Worcestershire in August 1889, played for Corinthian FC and Baggies.

He played 14 times for Albion, who scored four goals.

Less than seven weeks after the war was proclaimed in 1914, Bache recalled the West Bromwich Company of the Staffordshire Battalion.

He was executed, aged 26, while serving for Lancashire Fusiliers in an attempt to recapture the Ypres area called The Bluff.

His name is shown on a panel that stands outside The Hawthorns.
