West Midlands - Laughing Stock League.

With the latest problems being announced at Aston Villa, it got me thinking about the West Midlands' teams and their respective problems over the past few years. It seems that although the West Midlands is a football "hotbed", all of the teams seem to have problems both on and off the pitch so I have created my own " Laughing Stock " league.

I am sure that this is bound to be controversial, but on a "slow" day, it should create some debate.

So, the West Midlands - Laughing Stock League as I see it:

West Bromwich Albion
In trouble at the wrong end of the Prem. Can't hold on to a three goal lead. Internal fights and a dis-united dressing room. Anti-Semitic player, player seen "doing" Hippy Crack, player using £50 notes as loo roll. Etc....

Birmingham City
In trouble at the wrong end of the Champo. Owner in jail. Transfer embargo. Rubbish ground.

Coventry City
Penniless and without a pot to p1zz in. Having to play in Northampton and started this season with a 10 point deduction.

Wolves
In the third tier, however now seem to be on the up with promotion to the Champo secured. Recent wounds with poor managerial appointments, poor public relations and subsequent relegations are starting to heal. A club that is clearly falling in the LSL.

Aston Villa
Another club that is in trouble at the wrong end of the Prem for the third season running, despite appointing what everyone thought was a good managerial appointment. Suddenly dismiss their Assistant Manager and Head of Football without explanation and appoint relative novices in Gordon (Sid) Cowans and Shay Given. A club on the up in the LSL!

Walsall
They're just Walsall having another "average" season.

Have I got the league right? Come on football fans of the West Midlands, tell me that our clubs are better (or worse) than they currently appear.

I really want to enjoy the fact that Blues are going down this season.

I predicted it before the season started, they’re a bunch of despicable no marks, they thought it was hilarious that we went down last season and well, let’s be honest nobody likes the club or the fans do they?

It’s difficult to enjoy it properly though because even though they’re as horrible as they are I never want to see a club go out of business and with relegation followed by administration followed by relegation followed by administration all looming large on the horizon that is looking more and more like the outcome.

Come on blues sort yourselves out so I can get back to enjoying your misery rather feeling pity for you

Now that the season has finished, I though it an opportune time to update the West Midland's Laughing Stock League, especially in the light of Villa's fire-sale and Pepe Le Pew's sacking (sorry, leaving by mutual consent) at Sandwell.


West Bromwich Albion
Survived in the Prem. Manager sacked. Players critical in the press. Couldn't hold on to a three goal lead. Internal fights and a dis-united dressing room. Anti-Semitic player, player seen "doing" Hippy Crack, player using £50 notes as loo roll. Etc....

Birmingham City
Survived by the skin of their teeth in the Champo. Owner in jail. Transfer embargo. Rubbish ground.

Coventry City
Penniless and without a pot to p1zz in. Having to play in Northampton and started this season with a 10 point deduction. Survived in L1, though.

Aston Villa
Just about survived in the Prem despite appointing what everyone thought was a good managerial appointment. Suddenly dismiss their Assistant Manager and Head of Football without explanation and appoint relative novices in Gordon (Sid) Cowans and Shay Given.
Now Randy Git has pulled the plug and decided it's time to bail-out. Uncertain times in Brumidgum.

Wolves
In the second tier, however now seem to be on the up with promotion to the Champo secured. Recent wounds with poor managerial appointments, poor public relations and subsequent relegations are starting to heal. A club that is clearly falling in the LSL.

Walsall
They're just Walsall having another "average" season.

"player using £50 notes as loo roll"

That was in 2012
