West Brom footballers apologise for Barcelona fiasco

West Brom

Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino praised his side's spirit as they battled to a 2-1 FA Cup fifth round win against West Brom at The Hawthorns on Saturday.

Skipper Jonny Evans, 30, Gareth Barry, 36, Jake Livermore, 28, and Boaz Myhill, 35, allegedly laughed over their "prank".

Earlier this week, the club sacked chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman due to poor results on the field this season.

The Baggies fell to their fourth defeat in a row today when they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Saints, but they almost came back from 2-0 down to take the South Coast side to a replay.

Four West Bromwich Albion players were being investigated by Spanish police on Friday for the alleged theft of a taxi while the English Premier League team was training in Barcelona.

The Ulsterman could do nothing to stop Southampton taking the lead through Wesley Hoedt on 11 minutes, with Dusan Tadic adding the second after the interval.

Dog food withdrawn from stores after euthanasia drug found in food
The recall comes after Washington D.C. news station WJLA found pentobarbital in multiple cans of Gravy Train dog food. All products included on the retailer's recall list supplied by Smucker came from one manufacturing facility.

The Saints were on top throughout the first half before West Brom came out stronger after the break, hitting the bar through Ahmed Hegazi's acrobatic effort before some last ditch defending saw numerous efforts cleared off the goal line. Evans and Barry started while Myhill was a substitute.

The calamitous rut on the field that West Brom now find themselves is, which has seen them pick up just one first-tier win in their last 25 - coming after Pardew succeeded former boss Tony Pulis 13 games ago - has mounted pressure on the 56-year-old's current role within the club, particularly after the sackings of chairman John Williams and Chief Executive Martin Goodman earlier in the week. I felt I needed to make a little bit of a statement about the events.

Staff at the McDonald's Drive-Thru said the Baggies players humiliated the bewildered immigrant driver.

"We can only salvage it by getting some momentum", Pardew said.

A reporter then asked whether a taxi was involved and Pardew responded: "We've got an investigation into that so I'm not going put anything on that [rumour]".
