Inside Your Matchday Programme: West Brom

The B Team takeover Issue 23 with cover stars Dasilva, Finnsson, Gunnarsson and Zamburek

15 March 2019

"Our home form will give us confidence for the challenge ahead. We have won seven in a row at home and eight of our last nine at Griffin Park.

From the Dugout: Thomas Frank is looking to make it six points from nine against three big teams when West Brom visit Griffin Park.

"The focus as we move through the next 18 months is the move to our new stadium. I’m sure I am not alone when I drive past the site on the M4 or A4 and have a look at how it is growing. It is exciting to see the fourth side of the ground now in development and it will not be long until the shell is constructed and then the internal fit-out will commence."

From the Boardroom: Jon Varney tells us about his first few weeks in the Chief Exec's office, and looks ahead to the challenges facing him.

Match Preview: Lineups, latest news and a last-five form guide.

In Opposition: Squad lists, profiles and stats.

Four in Focus: West Brom's key quartet in detail.

"I don’t think anyone, really, saw it coming, so there was a lot of shock around the decision, but the club have made it plainly clear that the remit was to get back into the Premier League this season."

Hot Off The Press: Paul Suart of the Birmingham Mail prepares us for The Baggies.

Heroes and Villains: Greville Waterman looks back on some previous clashes with today’s opponents through the lens of two significant performances.

"I really hope we can give the boys an experience of a decent crowd to get this real home advantage behind us. We’ve experienced it a little bit against Manchester United and Anderlecht in recent years, but this is a Cup Final. A moment that we haven’t seen before at Griffin Park and it would be extraordinary to show the boys how loud and how supportive Griffin Park can be."

B Team Takeover: We talk to B Team Head Coach Lars Friis, as well as four members of his squad, about the 18/19 season and build-up to next month's domestic cup finals.

Big Book of Griffin Park: Dave Lane takes us back 80 years to the last time Brentford faced Middlesbrough and West Brom in quick succession.

We both said hello and then he’s gone: “Who are you?” and I said: “I’m your new ‘keeper, you’ve just signed me."

History Boys, Ben Hamer: Dan Long speaks to the man between the sticks more than a decade after The Bees won the League Two title.

"There was the magnificent victory on the road at Middlesbrough in the ever popular brown and orange whilst today’s visitors took the decision to dispense with the services of manager Darren Moore. It was a move that was met with almost universal bewilderment given the promotion chasing position still being enjoyed by The Baggies."

Park Life: Nick Bruzon gives us his latest word as a game against 'Frank Lampard's Derby County' looms on the horizon.

B Team XI: Where Are They Now?: We look at the 12 players to have come through the B Team and tell their stories.
