Up at the Hawthorns these appears to be troubled times!
The Midlands club, a club who sacked the loyal Chelsea servant Steve Clarke and a club that benefitted from the services of or very own Romelu Lukaku for a season, are under-fire from their own fans.
Having decided that a change of manager was needed, following their flirtation with relegation last season, those who run the club appointed Alan Irvine.
But, it seems, the appointment hasn`t gone down that well with several supporters resigned to the fact that Irvine isn`t the man for the job and that the club is, despite some recent strong signings, heading for the relegation trap-door this coming season.
To that effect it appears that several who have purchased season tickets are requesting that they are refunded, a request that the club have decided to agree to until a cut-off deadline of next Thursday.
Now, as someone who has followed Chelsea through the good and the bad times, that seems a strange avenue for both the club and the supporters to explore.
Even when Chelsea were languishing in the old Second Division and crashing out of domestic cups to far inferior opposition, I never once questioned my loyalty to the cause. Sure I had a good old moan but cometh the next fixture I was there, stood on the terraces, cheering myself hoarse supporting the team.
It was the way it was, it was the way my passage in life was taking me, grooming me for adulthood and the inevitable responsibilities that come with the other stages of your life.
Therefore, perhaps those very West Brom supporters who have requested refunds should stand in front of their mirrors and ponder over what kind of loyalty to the cause they are showing, there` s, making a statement and there`s……………turning your back on a way of life.
What`s your verdict, have they crossed that sacred line?
