Rovers suffer home defeat to West Brom

West Brom picked up their first win of the season on Saturday at the Memorial Stadium against Bristol Rovers. It was an Italian job in the end that ensured Albion picked up their first 3 points of the campaign to hopefully get their season up and running aiming for that desired promotion this season set by the Englishmen himself, Journal.

Just after the quarter of an hour mark Ambrosini put Albion ahead, after early pressure from the Baggies it paid off when the unusual goalscorer struck home to put them 1-0 ahead. 20 minutes later West Brom's lead was doubled, this time another Italian Antonio Cassano to send Albion in a very commanding position, 2-0 up at the break. Shortly after it kicked off again it was 2-1, Rovers were back in the game but just 1 minute later that man Cassano stepped up again making it 3 in 3 this season, surely wrapping up the 3 points to take back to the Midlands.

Hamouma grabbed a goal back for Bristol Rovers very late on but it didn't affect the final outcome that really mattered to Albion, their first 3 points of the season and a much better performance from his side comparing them to the 2 recent defeats to Portsmouth and Plymouth Argyle, after it he spoke with press before heading back to Birmingham:

"I am very happy with the win, good to see our experienced players grabbing us the win too showing that they still matter when starting in our squad so they deserve big credit for tonights win. I understand that they may not have a bright future with the club but when asked to play they provide with performances to the experience they have at this level of football. Next up is West Ham United at The Hawthorns a game in which we hope to make it back to back wins this season."

K. Honda (12'), (88') -----------------L. Podolski (11')--------------

Honda stars as Rams triumph

Keisuke Honda secured Derby County first three points in home ground with two goals in a 3-2 victory over nine men Plymouth Argyle. The visiting side saw two players were shown red card. The Japan international's performance was one, but not the only, reason why Derby have been enjoying life since their promotion from Division 4 as the Rams made it three matches unbeaten. Honda has now scored four goals in his three appearances, having netted a brace in the previous match at Port Vale.

It was Di Natale who was shown the first marching order earlier in 28th minute. The hosts had twice trailed after goals from Lukas Podolski and Alberto Aquilani either side of a Honda equaliser in a compelling encounter at Pride Park. However, El Arabi levelled on the hour mark just after Derby made three substitutions. Ji-Sung Park, Heung-Min Son and Lewis Holtby provided that fresh legs but it the was latter who contributed to El Arabi equaliser. Holtby made the cross into the penalty area for El Arabi to head for his first goal since his permanent move from Manchester United.

Plymouth were left with nine men in the 66th minute when Leighton Baines was shown his second yellow card after his mistimed challenge on Danilo. Knowing their huge advantage, Derby kept on pressing for the winning goal with Son had his header blocked by Diego Alves. The never-give-up effort gained its reward with two minutes to go, Danilo swung over a pinpoint cross and Honda snuck away from Jeremy Toulalan at the far post to nod in.

Derby County moved up to fourth with seven points after three games while Plymouth Argyle sit in 10th place with four points.

Div 2

Leyton Orient 0-2 Rushden

Rushden get their first win of the season at Orient. New signing, Steven Reid played his first game here. It seemed to be all Orient in the first half but halfway into the second half, Quaresma crossed in the corner to sub and loan player Jack Collison, who got his head onto it and directed it into the goal. Later on, Collison setup Ulloa for the 2nd.

Son on song

Derby County striker Heung-Min Son scored four goals - including a superb 20-minute first half hat-trick - to end Notts County's prefect start in Season 20. All seven goals amazingly came in the first half with the opener came as early as fourth minute. Son nodded home his first goal for the Rams from Diego Capel corner.

The South Korea international grabbed his second in the twentith minute before slotted the third four minutes later. Although the host pulled one back through Radamel Falcao penalty, they showed no sign of motivation to level the score as Son completed his fourth five minutes before break. Adebayor found the net two minutes later but the scoreline remained the same till the final whistle.

Derby County moved to second behind current leaders Portsmouth with ten points from four games. Notts County, meanwhile, dropped to fourth with nine points.

Gomis departs, Klose & Morrison join

It has been quiet on the transfer front recently at West Brom but in recent days the club have confirmed that French striker Bafetimbi Gomis has left the club for division 4 outfit Reading. Albion didn't let the Frenchmen go cheap though, in return the Baggiest obtained experienced 35 year old striker Miroslav Klose and exciting young Englishmen Ravel Morrison. Both players have joined West Bromwich Albion on 3 year deals, helping Albion in their promotion push this season.

It seems that Journal has opted for a bit of experience going forward whilst at the same time still gaining a young Englishmen for his future plans with the club. Morrison, at just 20 years of age, has been impressive recently and if he continues the way he is he will become better and better. Klose not only offers experience to Albion but goals too, he is known as a big goalscorer, when speaking with Journal this is what he had to say on the deals:

"It was an offer that we simply couldn't reject when it came in for Gomis. We had been chasing Ravel Morrison since I took charge here at West Brom and to finally acquire him as well as a like for like replacement for Gomis is a great deal for us. He may be 35 Miroslav but his goalscoring ability will not be questioned at this club, despite us recently going for 'younger' players. As far as any other transfers go, I am always in the market looking for players, again I will update when there is any news to tell you."

Townsend star man on first West Brom start

After another disappointing midweek defeat at the hands to West Ham United where they were beaten 3-1 at The Hawthorns by the Hammers they last night overcome opposition Hull City in a very impressive way. The man who stole the show on Saturday night was 22 year old Andros Townsend who came in to replace the injured Rio Mavuba, and to great affect, a result that will hopefully get Albion's season well and underway in the big promotion push.

The new German international Miroslav Klose went straight into the first team after completing his move from Reading on Friday night and it took him just one minute to get his West Brom career underway, running clear of the un alert City defence to slot past Subasic in the Hull goal. Despite such a great start from Albion, Hull drew level just 15 minutes later, Diop rose ahead of the WBA defence to take it back to square one at the KC.

It was Italian winger Alessandro Florenzi that put West Brom back in the lead, the 22 year old showing what he has to offer individually to the Baggies, going on a nice run before slotting past the keeper 10 yards out. Albion were dominant all over the field and just 4 minutes later it was no surprise when they made it 3, this time Thomas Cleverley getting in on the act to score his second WBA career goal.

Then it was 22 year old Andros Townsend that stole the show for West Brom, just before half time he made it 4-1 to West Brom to make the Hull keepers day go from bad to worse and then finally he made it 5 on the 65th minute to wrap up a really impressive man of the match performance, showing wy he was signed in the season break, this is what Journal had to say after the emphatic win over the Tigers:

"Tonight was just a show of what we can do to teams when playing at our best. It was a disappointing loss midweek to West Ham United, not only did we acquire injuries to key players in Dejan Lovren and Rio Mavuba but as a team performance we just didn't turn up on the night and in the end the Hammers turned out deserved winners.

But tonight was much different, we shown confidence in our play, I moved Tom central and gave Andros his first start on the wing and it paid off to massive effect, the game was won before half time. It is likely Townsend will start again midweek against Queens Park Rangers as Rio will still be recovering from his injury, in my opinion we saw Cleverley's best game he's had at our club yet in central midfield too."

Derby linked with Portsmouth Douglas

Douglas%2B-%2BFC%2BTwente%2B%25282%2529.jpg

Derby County are being linked with a move for Teixeira Douglas after Portsmouth board previously put the player on transfer before manager Nick Higgs joined the club. Douglas, 26, is under contract at Fratton Park until Season 21, but the former Huddersfield Town defender is said to be unsatisfied with his opportunity in the first team football at Pompey this season and has been in talks with the board for a quick solution.

Rams manager Dean Bryant, who has previously work with Douglas at Charlton Athletic, has confirmed his interest to bring the Netherlands international to Pride Park. "I know Doulgas when we were at Charlton Athletic and he's the type of defender I'm looking for at the moment. He's strong in the air and someone who can be trusted at the back."

Derby have already conceded ten goals in the season after four games and Bryant has admitted he needs to strengthen his backline. "We have strengthen much in the attack and midfield area in the pre-season but we have not looked into the defence yet and I think there's a need for us to invest on a new defender."

With all the speculation, it is still unknown whether Doulgas is part of Higgs' plan as he prepares for his first match in charge against Colchester United this Wednesday.

Derby got through to the next round of English Cup after winning the first round in the 5-2 victory at Yeovil Town. Okazaki got a hat trick. Ji-Sung Park and Huntelaar scored the other two goals.

Any teams available that I can take over?

At the moment, Brighton and Hove Albion is on job offer. Ipswich Town manager is on the verge of getting fired after failing to report to work for 29 days. Keep an eye on these two. ;)

De Jong fee agreed between Albion and Pompey

It has tonight emerged that both Portsmouth and West Bromwich Albion have agreed a fee for Dutch striker Luuk De Jong, a striker who was being chased by Journal before they gained new management recently. A fee has been accepted and it is just the waiting game now for De Jong to arrive and complete his medical at WBA before the deal can be fully confirmed. De Jong will add to the range in attacking talent on show at West Brom as they push for the promotion spots for the second season running.

In the other direction it is understood that 2 players will part and head Pompey's way in exchange for the 23 year old forward with the first player being Moreno Rodrigo, the 22 year old is yet to be first in the pecking order at West Brom and despite being one for the future, he has to make way in order for De Jong to come in. The second player to leave will be Englishmen Ryan Fredericks who also hasn't featured a single game since Journal took over.

"I very pleased to announce that Luuk De Jong will very shortly be a WBA player, but at the same time I am very sad we have to part with 2 very young players, but as far as we go in the promotion push De Jong improves our squad." the West Bromwich Albion manager said. "We are hopeful he will feature some part in tomorrows match against Queens Park Rangers where he will be unveiled to the crowd, but again this depends on his match fitness and availability."
