Goodbye WBA, may you ever rot in the Championship, you are a joke team.
You are a laughing stock.
You're getting relegated we're all laughing at you.

Don’t actually get the bile and vitriol some Wolves fans demonstrate toward our neighbours. I can’t say it was always that way. I started watching Wolves in the late 1950s and wasn’t aware of anything other than friendly rivalry. Saturday at 6pm had a routine that involved waiting at the local newsagent for the arrival of the ‘pink’. All results were digested from league one to Midland Combination, before reading extended reports on all our local sides and also the feature articles devoted to those teams.
Players moved from Wolves to West Brom and the reverse, as did managers. Ronnie Allen was a Baggies hero as a player, who went on to manage Wolves. In our time in the lower leagues, in order to see certain top players I would go to West Brom, Villa and Stoke games when there was such players in the opposing teams.
In the 1970s football changed and mindless fan violence came to the fore. Many involved in the pre and post match violence, didn’t even ‘support’ the teams or like football and didn’t attend the games but hung around waiting to resume the fighting after the match ended. The previous friendly rivalries between local teams turned to nothing short of ‘hatred’ for some fans. Unfortunately elements of that era remains in the minds of some fans.
Surely the events of the last week should have shown that true football fans have far more in common one with another and should be talking with one unified voice, in order to save our teams and their place in their respective local communities.
I, for one, would rather more local sides in the Premier League, not fewer.

What a fantastic post, I am from the same era and have no hatred for any team or any one for one.

Excellent piece Wolfthistle. Well said.

24 Apr 2021 10:27:24
Good comment wolfthistle, I agree entirely, Its better to have more midland teams in the the prem than not, it makes the midlands stronger against the the northern and London clubs.

As you say it used to be friendly rivalry years ago, not this hate thing.
Be good to have, WBA, Brum, Villa, Wolves, Derby, Stoke all in the the prem to combat the Media favourites of the North/ south.

You're right Wolfwhiste and yellowstone. A stronger contingent of teams in the Midlands would be better for football. The past few decades have seen the Midlands teams suffer and fall behind other regions. This allowed the monstrous idea of a Super League to take hold. The former North East powerhouse of Newcastle/ Sunderland is another example of decline. I dimly remember Newcastle once being described as the Bank of England team. Nowadays the power is in London and the North West, and we saw how the six teams from these two regions were only too willing to breakaway into a Super League. It's a good start that the fans have stopped this, but it's only a start.

Strange how some people (not fans) think losing one of your local rivals is good, or even great, while in other parts of the Country they want all their Clubs in the Prem, just look who’ll probably replace one of our local teams, Brentford, Bournemouth, Barnsley, rather keep the Baggies, nothing wrong with local rivalry, might hurt more when you lose (but you get over it) and it’s great when you win, one way or another it’s got to be better if we’re all in the same League.

I was taken to my first wolves match in 1950, don't remember much about it though. Never thought I needed to hate any other teams to be a Wolves supporter. I find it very sad.

24 Apr 2021 12:06:17
It's called banter no hate about it.

24 Apr 2021 12:19:09
The 'hatred' of West Brom stems from their unwarranted arrogance when they never win anything, much like Tottenham! FWAW.

Wolfwhistle you talk like my late father did to my brother and I bringing us up the right way.
My dad was born in 1940 he saw all of wolves heyday in the 50's.

I have been to the hawthorns a few times with wolves and the hatred they have for us is 100 fold as our hatred to them.
They absolutely detest us to the max but you are correct like my father was and 2 wrongs don't make a right.

Me personally I couldn't care less if they stay up or go down all I care about is wolves.

I posted some time ago about Walsall and a reply told me to get off the site and don't come back and wash your mouth out talking walsall.

But when we were kids when wolves were playing away and my dad wasnt working away, my dad would take us to fellows park to watch walsall.

I don't like Albion I'm being truthful I don't like anything about them to the degree they're not even the effort of thought the majority of the time.
Reminders of them reading posts on here and driving past their ground every work day is the times they are in my mind.
Respect and kind regards wolfwhistle.

I don't hate the Baggies. I have friendly banter with them. My wife and all her family are Baggies fans.

24 Apr 2021 13:24:06
I never realised the hatred until the early/ mid 70s oxford had played that lot and at a pub in the evening 4 tesco fans were there, conversation turned to football, all was OK until I naively said I supported wolves, all of a sudden I was smacked a couple of times and the brave boys did a runner. That was my introduction to the hatred. Happy days of senseless violence!

It's safe to say that many fans of the "big six" teams hate each other. It's not just fans of the Midlands teams. But, the big six feed of each other's success, instead of each other's failure. This is something for Midlands fans to think about. It's better to have a successful region than to be a single successful team celebrating when neighbours go down.

24 Apr 2021 14:00:38
I'm thinking Deep Throat.
I like Villa in the premier league as they are how ever much it hurts they are the biggest midlands club in my lifetime.
Birmingham I used to think the same as I do towards albion but the last few years my thinking has changed towards Birmingham city I wouldn't have an issue if they were in the premier.
Like I say about Albion they are nothing to me.

24 Apr 2021 14:58:09
My hatred of them stems from a few trips to their Whorethorns ground when a gang of them ran up to a family of Wolves fans and punched a man in the face whilst he was holding an excited toddler in his arms. Then spitting on anyone who passed by.

24 Apr 2021 16:10:43
My dad's a Walsall fan so I've been to a lot of their games at Fellows Park and The Bescot - don't understand why any Wolves fans would hate them as they're never going to be a big club so good luck to them. Dad was also a decent amateur player and had a sort of trial/ training session at West Brom with his sunday league team. Thank god the first game he took me to was Wolves v Liverpool at the Molineux when I was 5 and started supporting Wolves (1976/ 77).

24 Apr 2021 17:36:06
Birmingham are mathematically safe.
Derby 1 Blues 2
Wayne Rooney not doing well at Derby they aren't safe with 2 games to go rotherham have games in hand.

Well the baggies lodged into the mind when Mick McCarthy took what proved to be, the fateful hammering in
February 2012. Maybe Mick could not manage to keep Wolves in the prem with his kitty. Not happy to remember a couple of his last unfortunate signings but the score would have heightened bitter rivalry as it is now called. Like it or not.
Just think how happy we are now on the journey with Fosun and Nuno. COYW.
