Peter Odemwingie: Eyeing a high finish with West Brom

Peter Odemwingie: Eyeing a high finish with West Brom

The Nigeria international was part of the Baggies team that shocked the Premier League by reaching third spot before a run of one point from four games hampered their progress.

But the 31-year-old forward feels Albion can be a real force under Steve Clarke and claims an impressive finish is not beyond them.

"When a new manager comes in there is uncertainty but things are going well," said Odemwingie.

"Our points total is based on our performances not on dreams and the manager has been very quick to settle us down.

"The fans are excited and loving the quality of football we are producing at the moment.

"There is nothing wrong with those dreams we have of finishing in the top five.

"Maybe we can continue with that and see how far we can go. There is no doubt we will do better than last season.

"We've had an exceptional start to this campaign and we are hoping for an exceptional end."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
