  • Wed, 13 Nov 2019 10:00:07 +0000: From Bellingham to Watkins: 10 young Championship stars shining this season - West Bromwich Albion | The Guardian

    Birmingham’s youngest scorer and a player likened to Callum Wilson make our selection of second-tier players aged 23 or under

    Bellingham was born in June 2003, when a ponytailed David Beckham joined Real Madrid and Gareth Southgate was in the England defence, but the teenage midfielder has displayed a maturity that belies his years. In August Bellingham, who has shone in the crux of the Birmingham midfield alongside the former Arsenal prospect Daniel Crowley, became the club’s youngest goalscorer at 16 days and 63 days, eclipsing Trevor Francis’s record. The son of Mark, a prolific striker at non-league level, Bellingham is the latest Birmingham academy graduate to make a splash in the first team, as Demarai Gray and Nathan Redmond did previously.

  • Mon, 28 Oct 2019 10:00:06 +0000: We know football and dementia are linked. So what will the game do about it? | Barry Glendenning - West Bromwich Albion | The Guardian

    A landmark study confirmed what many – including the family of West Brom and England legend Jeff Astle – long suspected

    So now we know. Revealed last week, the results of a landmark study into the relationship between football and brain damage confirmed what many in and outside the game have long suspected: former professionals are significantly more likely to suffer from dementia and other serious neurological diseases in their later years. Three-and-a-half times more likely, to be precise. The research project, conducted over nearly two years by the University of Glasgow’s Brain Injury Group also discovered a five-fold increase in the risk of Alzheimer’s, a four-fold increase in motor neurone disease and a two-fold increase in Parkinson’s. What football – those who play, coach and govern the sport – decides to do with this crucial information remains to be seen but recent history suggests any real progress in the field of player safety will be made at a glacial pace.

    Dawn Astle spent time on the night of her 34th birthday alone with her father, who had just died after choking during a family dinner. Frantic efforts by relatives and paramedics had failed to save Jeff, the former West Brom and England legend who, at 54, had first begun to show symptoms of the brain damage that would eventually lead to his death. Diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s, his descent into utter helplessness was swift and before his death five years later he was incontinent, barely able to feed himself and had no idea who he or anyone around him was. In Michael Calvin’s book State of Play, Dawn tells the author that as her father’s body lay in repose she swore an oath on his behalf. “If football has done this to you, Dad,” she said. “I promise you I’ll make sure the whole world knows and I’ll get justice for you.”

  • Sat, 26 Oct 2019 16:42:32 +0000: Josh Cullen penalty earns Charlton draw to frustrate 10-man West Brom - West Bromwich Albion | The Guardian

    A frustrated Slaven Bilic likened the controversial finale of West Brom’s match against Charlton to “a horror movie” but refused to completely condemn the referee, Matt Donohue.

    Josh Cullen’s penalty deep into stoppage time earned the visitors a 2-2 draw and denied Albion the chance to move four points clear at the top of the Championship. Semi Ajayi collided with Naby Sarr in the penalty area to force the Baggies to settle for a point after Hal Robson-Kanu looked to have given them victory.
