edit: yes I know I have written Bromwich incorrectly, reddit does not let me edit the title and I have already deleted and posted this twice lmaosubmitted by ignaciourreta to seriousfifacareers [link] [comments]
After having posted my season 7 squad on this subreddit, I started Reading al lof these CM stories of you guys, so I decided to kinda tell the story of my WBA road to glory, there Will be some blank spaces cuz I didnt document it all, and all I'm writing is just from memory, but as a very famous italian journalist would say, here we go! (also sorry for my english, I’m spanish so it is a bit limited :P). This will be a very very long read, as this story has a lot of chapters waiting to be told!
SEASON 1Transfers and squad
So I started with WBA with a squad that honestly didn't give me much confidence ahead of this huge challenge. With a Budget of 18 million € there was not much room for big names or huge changes in the squad (that Will have to wait until seasons 2-3). Nevertheless I dove into the market and was able to do some Good signings, obviously letting some players go before (I don’t remember who exactly, this was about 4 or 5 months ago). John Swift and Adam Armstrong were the 2new faces in which I trusted to take us back to the top division of english football, and, to be honest, they did preform. Fun fact #1, not only this was gonna be our first run on the Championship, but also our last one!
Sorry I dont remember pretty much any subs apart from O'Shea and Ferguson
Things didn’t really started the way one would have liked, as we lost on our season opener against Nottingham Forest 2-0, and honestly our defence was a bit of a joke through the first half of the season, but when we settled in, there was nothing that could stop us: We took the lead of the league in the 18th match against Sheffield Wednesday (who were the leaders at that point) with a commanding win of 3-0, and since then we were untouchable the whole season, winning the league with an impressive amount of 116 points. The team was looking much better, with rising-and future team Captain Dara O’Shea starting to peek his way into the starting XI, and Nathan Ferguson and Leko proving that they might be able to step-up and preform in the Premier League as they did in the second división. For anyone wondering, our cup campaign was absolutely awful loosing in the third round of the Carabo Cup, and in the replay of the 3rd round in the FA cup, but anyway, Premier League football was back at The Hawthorns, and this time it was gonna be for a long time.
SEASON 2Transfers and squad
This team did a good enough job in the Championship, but it was of my concern the fact that it was not that great for a Good Premier League run, one that could see us staying in the league for many years and heck-maybe even qualify for european football. So it was a bit of a rebuild time, but with 26 million € of Budget again not many big transfers incoming. Those 26 millions were quickly reduced when I realised that our last season star Matheus Pereira was on loan from Sporting Portugal, and that your star left winger Diangana was also not your club’s propriety. 17 million were gone in a blink for the pass of Pereira, and although we made some Good money with sells as Phillips by 7 million, Budget was a bit tight. Other players as Gibbs and Sawyers left the club bringing a bit more of cash to the club. We also made the signing of Faouit Maouassa a very promising left Back that could run the entire pitch, come back to his net, and then run again the entire pitch all in the same sprint, he was quick as a man can get. We tried to get Diangana back but it was just too expensive for us so we went for Said Benrahma from Brentford. Young Diogo Costa came from Porto for about 4 million, but he was gonna be our sub GK as Sam Johnstone was already at 80 OVR, probably will only play the cup games and from time to time a Premier League game, getting him prepared to step up for upcoming seasons, as he was our future keeper. Also we tried to squeeze through m Matty Cash but only a few thousands in bonuses didn't allow us to sign him. Finally, on deadline day I decided to sign Kevin Danso from FC Augsburg for about 5 million as a bit of a gamble for the future, if he preforms and improve he can certainly make it into the starting XI. So the team was a bit stronger, with not much on the bench to be honest but good talent, and what’s more important - a much younger squad tan the one I encountered at the start of the journey.
Diogo Costa and Ferguson improving a lot - looking good for the future!
Cup-wise it was another awful season, loosing this time in the second round of the Carabao Cup, and again in the replay of the 3rd round in the FA cup, but the objective was not to win a trophy yet, just to stay safe in the midfield of the table. And honestly it was a great campaign on the PL, finishing 6th on the table, just 1 point below Chlesea in 5th, who overtook us in the last game after a painful loss against Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0 (They qualified 4th to the Champions League). But crucially there was a big incident in the 23rd game of the season, against Manchester United (which were a direct rival for us despite having a much better team) when Adam Armstrong got a direct red from a tackle to Fred and left us one men down for 50 minutes. Eventually we lost that game, and Armstrong never made it into the starting XI again that season, being sold the following summer (look I know that the one that made that tackle was me but ya’ know, you have to make up a bit of a story from time to time). Overall it was a great season, qualified for the Europa League, with a lot of talent in the squad still growing as Jonathan Leko, already in the high 70s, Dara O’Shea now playing every game from the start, Ferguson and Costa also improving a lot.
SEASON 3Transfers and squad
This season I knew that we definitely needed a step-up from our squad if we wanted to stay competitive in the top 6 and preform in the Europa League. But I also knew that the transfer Budget was not gonna be anything crazy (40 million-ish this time, not too bad to be fair). Fun fact #2, I already knew that through last season, so in January I did some 0-cost moves looking forward to season 3. There were 3 main names (there was a 4th also, Fosu-Mensah from Manchester United, but he was more of a rotation guy) that we signed whose contract came to an end after the 20/21 season. Firstly, Aboubakar Kamara, he was not gonna be our main striker of course, but a bit of a experienced (and fighting) sub, one of those trouble-maker players that you need on your squad. Secondly, a star signing from Liverpool in the Right Back. No it was not Trent Alexander-Arnold who moved onto Real Madrid at the end of season 1, but Hector Bellerin, who changed London to Liverpool at the end of the 19/20 season, and did not play a single Premier League game under Klopp’s management. So to try and relaunch his career he decided to come to a club that did play an european competition, but was not under the constant lights and cameras that playing for a top-tier team meant. He also was gonna be a good reference to Nathan Ferguuson, and would help him a lot improving. Lastly, we signed Tottenham discard Eric Dier. For some reason he only played a couple of games last year and Tottenham were not keen on renewing his contract, so I gave him a new one! (and with his signing starts a struggle to find the perfect fit alongside Pereira, a defensive midfielder that can also go up to the other team’s field and create some danger, a bit of an all rounder, which Dier was not). Of course those 3 were not our only incorporations that summer, as we were also looking for another Left wing (Benrahama did preform but just was not the kind of lightning player we were looking for on the side of the pitch) another midfielder to have a bit of better rotation on the squad, a new central back, because being honest I was not very safe playing with Ajayi and Hagazi in the defence (both got sold in this summer), and crucially, a new striker that could fill the shoes that Adam Armstrong left after being sold by 25 million. Well, we signed Tottenham sub Ryan Sessegnon for almost 30 million (the most expensive signing in this career so far), Yossouf Fofana from Monaco, maybe the all rounder we were looking for, maybe not, very young, not too much potential but we’ll see; Emmanuel Dennis from Club Brugge, a very quick striker with some good finalising skills, and Mohamed Salisu from Valladolid, an enormous human being, very quick, with great defensive skills and a lot of potential to unleash at The Hawthorns.
Diogo Costa now was the starting GK, Ferguson was having much more playtime
Those new players were gonna be responsable of either a well consistent season and maybe, just maybe a push for the top-4 in the Premier league, or the confirmation that West Brom was a one season wonder and that there was not much more in this squad. It turns out, it was the first one. Not only we gave Man City and Liverpool a good run for their money in the first half of the season (falling a bit in the second half to be honest), but we finished 3rd in the league well ahead of 4th and 5th, Chelsea and Manchester United. Not gonna lie, we have always done way better in the long-term league competitions tan in the cups, but that changed this year. We didn’t get knocked out of the Carabao Cup as usual in the 3rd or 4th round, but manager to get into the final (winning on aggregate 5-0 to Arsenal) against all-mighty Liverpool. It was the first final of this squad, and it showed. Liverpool wiped Wembley’s pitch with our faces in the first 20 minutes, eventually scoring the first goal of the afternoon because of a heavily-inspired Sadio Mané. We were starting to find our place at the pitch from min 20 to min 30, when a bit of light appeared in front of our faces. Daniele Rugani did a criminal foul on the center of the field and was sent out to the locker-room directly; Liverpool were one men down, and our hopes had just rise an immense amount. Emmanuel Dennis scored on the 42’ and we were tied starting the second half, but Sadio Mane had other plans for the match and he put Liverpool on top with just 35 minutes ahead. Crucially, Yossouf Fofana went into the pitch just after the goal to sub Eric Dier in the midfield, and it was his first absolute masterclass as a baggie. Not only he gave the assist to Emmanuel Dennis on the 76th minute to equalize the game again, but scored the decisive goal with just 7 minutes left, beating Alisson and giving West Bromwich their first trophy in 50 years. Since then he was on the starting XI for pretty much the resto f the season. In the FA cup we lost on the semi finals just 3 days after our league cup success against Manchester United, with a 1-1 on the match and a 4-3 loss on penalties, but in the Europa League we were not gonna let go so easy. Indeed, the season ended in a high, winning West Brom’s first European title in their history beating Borussia Monchengladbach by 2-0 in Mestalla; a pitch in which we made an impressive comeback against Valencia after loosing 0-1 in the Hawthorns, winning in Spanish soil 4-0 (4-1 agg) on the quarter finals.
SEASON 4Transfers and squad
For some reason I did catalogue all the transfers that we made ahead of this season so I can give more details on the operations that we made.
Solorth - to Real Sociedad for 30 million € (He underperformed massively)
Aboubakar Kamara - to St. Etienne for 7 million € (Was a good free signing, but for UCL football not enough)
Kevin Danso - To West Ham utd. for 15 million € (Did not improve as expected and found a better option on the market)
Said Benrahama - to (???) for (???) - (I know I said I catalogued the moves but this one idk why I didn’t)
Tuanzebe - from Man Utd for free - did not play much at United and they were not gonna re-sign him so…
Otávio - from Everton for free - gave us a big headache in which is still up to date (I’m writing this after finishing season 8) our toughest loss, 5-1 in Goodison Park. His contract was running off so decided to get a good 80 OVR player.
Fikayo Tomori - from Norwich for 30 million € (Did not taste success at Chelsea, went undercover at Norwich, but now he wanted to return to top-tier football)
Youcef Atal - from Nice for 30 million € (Emi Buendía was not doing nothing wrong, but was not as incissive as Sessegnon on the right)
Brandon Williams - from Fortunata Dusseldorf for 17 million € (The same as Tomori, but from Man UNited to Fortunata in the Bundesliga: Very young with a lot of potential)
Mike Jeffrey Portillo Soler - from Valladolid for 15 million € - He was the replacement for Kevin Danso, much younger and with a lot of potential.
At this point I had about 20 million left and the task of signing a good sub striker. Had my eyes on Patson Daka, but Crystal Palace thought the same as me and they did sign him before I could do anything. After that I saw two young with great potential players that, if they did not perform could give us a great benefit selling them.
Favio Silva - from Oporto for 14 million € (74 OVR)
Troy Parrot- from Tottenham for 7 million € (He was 72 OVR and did not play a minute for the Spurs)
Still improving the rotation of the team
From what I can remember this season was the brightest in terms of football that The Hawthorns has seen so far. Being a bit of an underdog as 3 seasons ago we were in the Championship kind of benefited us because our opponents did nos self-isolate just under their nets as they could be doing against europe’s biggest teams. Season started strongly with a 4-1 win over Bayern Munchen ni the Uefa Super Cup, with yet another masterclass from Yosseuf Fofana. We were pressing Bayern so hard they barely got out of their pitch in the second half. Honestly, one of the biggest games WBA have played since Alex Goerge is their manager, defeating in style last year’s Champions League winner. Our main opponent in the Group Stage was Real Madrid, but with them dropping points in both their games against Lazio, and an embarrassing defeat against us in the Santiago Bernabeu by 4-0, their late win at The Hawthorns by 2-1 couldn’t get higher than 2nd place behind WBA. In the domestic competitions things were looking really good as we again did a pretty strong first half of the season in the Premier League an managed to get into the Carabao Cup Semi-Finals against Manchester United. Our run in the Premier League was looking good for a title shot, but unfortunately in the Carabao Cup we drawn both legs against United 1-1 and lost in penalties (like last year against them in the FA cup semi finals) by 4-3. After an “easy” draw against Oporto in the first knockout stage of the Champions league saw us through to face against Liverpool, as lady luck did not seem to be by our side, giving us pretty much one of the toughest rivals we could get. Last year’s Carabao Cup final showed us we still were not a match for them unless something strange happened (like Rugani’s red card, which allowed us to make the comeback), but this season it was different, being just ahead of them in the league, we knew we could challenge them in the quarter finals. And heck we did. A 1-1 in The Hawthorns was not a good result for the second leg but we did still had our chances, and in a game that remembered a lot the Super Cup won in august against Bayern, we knocked out Liverpool winning in Anfield 3-1 with Klopp’s team not creating a single chance in the second half of the game. Suddenly we were in the Champions League semi-finals against Barcelona, leading the Premier League by 4 points with less than 10 games left and in the FA cup semi-finals against Chelsea. Unfortunately we couldn’t make it into the FA cup final, even we pushed Chelsea with our aggressive pressing style up to their goal for the entire game, a late Pulisic goal in the 81’ made me bring out Emmanuel Dennis as I did big rotations for this game (1st squad needed a break). Dennis managed to tie the game in the 88th minute, but yet in another counter-attack Chelsea got us in the 105’. Dennis still had other plans as he socred just ten minutes later the 2-2, and then we were into the penalty shootout again. And we were not good at that. Chelsea won the shootout by a humiliating 3-0, but we still had good chances of winning the Premier and Champions League. We maintained a 4 point lead over Liverpool with 2 games left, the first one at Stamford Bridge, and the Premier League finale ni our home receiving Tottenham. Couldn’t break through Chelsea’s defense but managed to take one point out of the bridge, so we still were only depending on ourselves against José Mourinho’s Spurs in front of our fans to win WBA’s first league title in over 100 years, the first one of the Premier League era. After a boring first half, with much more possession than Tottenham but not too many chances I decided to bring out Troy Parrot (against his former club) to see if he could gave us something that Leko could not. And he absolutely could. He broke trough spur’s defence not once, not twice or even three times, but managed to score 4 goals (one third of all the goals he socred one season) and made West Brom the Premier League Champions of the 22/23 campaign. Out european campaign saw us receive Barcelona at The Hawthorns in the UCLsemi-finals for the first time in the club’s history, an despite Barça took the early lead, Leko and Dennis managed to score one goal each and wrap up the first leg winning 2-1. Half of the work was done, but there was still a visit to the Nou Camp remaining. And it was absolute hell. We managed to get some decent chances in the first half, but Ter Stegen ( as well as in the 1st leg) made some impossible saves. In the second half we just couldn’t manage to get out of our pitch, Barça was a machine of creating goal chances, including one post in the 93th minute. Luckily (or not), we survived on spanish soil and squeezed our way into the final with a nil nil in the second half. We faced Juventus in the season finale for european glory, and the match couldn’t start in a worse way for us. Not only we were missing some incredible chances (Szczęsny did pretty much the game of his life), but Otàvio was given a direct red card with 10 minutes left in the first half. Nevertheless, I knew the spirit of this team was indestructible, and so, Dennis scored in the 75th minute, and gave WBA the biggest trophy of their history. Shoutout to both young strikers Fabio Silva and Troy Parrot, the first one being key for the UCL title (10 goals 9in 10 games) and the second one, not really performing until the last game of the PL, until then he was pretty much out of the team.
SEASON 5Transfers and Squad
I did not catalogue the transfers this season, so I will do this from memory...
Mohamed Salisu - to Real Madrid for 75 million € (As I said, there was not much hope on retaining him after Barcelona almost got him on last summer’s deadline day, so a good offer came in and there was not much to do)
John Swift - to Manchester City for 29 million € (A good player, that had been with us since the beginning, but after all the signings made on the midfield, there was not much room for him, so it was silly to deny him a move)
Otávio - to Schalke 04 for 30 million € (Pretty much the same case as Swift, no room for him, and his red card on the UCL finale was difficult to forget… nevertheless he di a really good job the season he played with us, he might come back at some point in the future)
Buendía - to Chelsea for 45 million € (He had been with us since s1, but was not the type of rocketship player we were needing for our counter-attack playstyle anymore)
Youcef Atal - to Valencia for 40 million € - He not only did not fit the rocketship player role that we were aiming for, some good performances against Liverpool and Man Utd that gave me some hope, but was never decisive.
Eric Dier - to Juventus for 30 million € - Really never fit in our squad, with some good performances but never a standout one.
Faouit Maouassa did not go anywhere, but was really close to closing a deal with Barcelona on deadline day, so until he decided to stay definitely 2 months later and renewed his contract, did not play a minute.
Jack Grealish - from Aston Villa for free (85 OVR, he had nothing to do on a club that was constantly fighting for not being relegated, I suppose he did not want to renew his contract for that reason, so was a great option)
Youri Tielemans - from Leicester City for free (pretty much the same case as Grealish, Leicester was fighting for Europa League positions, and he was ready for much more)
Lucas Fernandes - from Vitoria SC for free (Brazilian, same profile as Pereira, 2 years younger, with less potential but he was a great option as a sub for him)
Boubacar Kamara - from Villarreal for 40 million € - Defensive midfielder, very young (84 OVR), signed him for matches in which we need a bit more defensive skills (against top teams) to be just behind Pereira and give the team a bit more consistency.
Patson Daka - from Crystal Palace for 45 million € (Wanted to sign him last year, Crystal Palace was faster than me, this year he was not gonna play anywhere else than The Hawthorns)
Krépin Diatta - from Eintracht Frankfurt for 75 million € (The most expensive transfer we have done so far in this career, he was 86 OVR and was coming to fix the issue that Atal was not able to. His signing was a very risky one, so he had to perform from day 1)
With Ferguson moving to the centre of the defence as a replacement for Salisu while Portillo Soler kept growing, we had to look for another RB, as Fosu Mensah was okay, but only 79 rated, for a club fighting for Premier League and Champions League was a bit low for being the second option.
Matty Cash - from Southampton for 20 million € - I was really close to sign him years ago, and he was a solid option for being Bellerin’s sub, with Fosu Mensah completing a good rotation on the RB.
Kieran Tierney - from Napoli for 35 million € - This signing was made in a hurry on deadline day with just 4 or 5 hours left as Barcelona and Maouassa were finishing up a deal. Their negotiations ended up badly, Maouassa stayed and now we had him, Brandon Williams and Tierney, three pretty good solid options, none of them was way better than other on the LB.
Illan Mesliar - from Leeds for 15 million € - Also another signing made in a bit of a hurry as Diogo Costa got injured for long duration on pre-season and I only had one more GK
Just Diatta missing for a quality sub - Maouassa loosing his position in the LB
Not gonna lie, probably the toughest season so far in this save. We started our league title defense with 3 losses in a row against low tier teams, conceding 8 goals against and not scoring even one, so our league titles were pretty much obliterated from there on. Managed to start picking up the pace, but we never had a consistent enough run to fight for the title again. After the first half of the season we were standing in 11th place, really far from the objective, which was finish inside the top-4 and secure a UCL spot for next year. Managed to finish a poor 4th in the league, overtaking Manchester United in the last game, ending the campaign just 1 point ahead of them. In the domestic cups, we threw away the Carabao cup in round 3, so, pretty much in November, we had no chances of winning the league cup nor the league. Things were not looking good. Fitting Tielemans alongside Pereira in the midfield was being a struggle, and Jack Grealish did not want to be behind Sessegnon in the team, so before the end of the year, they told me they wanted to leave the club. Grealish only play some games from there, but Tielemans ended up changing his mind, but it was really clear that he did not fit the role that Fofana did absolute wonders alongside Pereira. If that was not enough, in december, Leko, our main striker since the beginning of this save told me he was determined to leave, and in January a FC Barcelona offer came in for Hector Bellerin (Barça is the club he grew up in). Tomori also did want to leave the club in january. So yeah, things were not going smooth.
I could not sell Tielemans or Grealish in January yet, and was determined to keep Leko until the end of the season given he was one of the most-if not the most important player of the team. Tomori went to Real Madrid for 60 million as he was not getting the playtime he wanted (ferguson was playing as a CB alongside O’Shea, and Bellerin was in the RB) I managed to convince Bellerin to stay until the end of the season, and in the summer we were gonna let him go to Barcelona back again. Apart from that, Fofana goit injured until late february, so I had to make a move and sign some players. The chosen ones were Juan Foyth, from Granada, with good potential, and Lewis Cook from Florentina, who caught my eye seasons ago, but never was a priority until now. Also, Brandon Williams went on loan to RB Leipzig, as we had three top quality LB and not all of them could have the playtime they wanted.
We managed to get through the UCL group stage, but we were gonna face Real Madrid, and things were not looking good. Fofana got healthy just in time for the 1st leg, and as Tielemans had not worked alongside Pereira so far, decided to put him on the starting team. And what a decision it was. He once again gave another masterclass, we beated Real in Spain 3-1, and then after another Fofana masterclass in The Hawthorns won 2-1 again. So after trying Tielemans so much, it was clear that both our CMs had to be Pereira and Fofana, and Tielemans was gonna be a pretty sure sale next summer. Worked our way onto the UCL final against City (sorry for not giving much more details, but i don’t remember them) , and beat them 3-1 without Leko (I did not think he really deserved to play the last game of the season after telling us he wanted to left the first time things were not going smooth in the team). In the FA cup we won the final against Manchester United, a club that used a really dirty tactic to destabilize us one week before the game: sign Jack Grealish and Leko, both of them at the same price, 75 million €. Pretty much the only good thing this season was the fact that Diatta not only showed he had great potential, but proved he was exactly the player we were looking for, we solved the issue in the right, now wwe had to sort out Pereira’s mate in the midfield (Fofana was good from time to time, but only 81 OVR, one of the lowest in the team, and a really inconsistent player)
SEASON 6After a tough season 5, we had to sort some things on the squad, and try to do a decent PL campaign, maybe not win it, but at least put up a good fight against Liverpool and Man City.
Transfers and squad
Youri Tielemans - 100 million to Manchester City - a good business for the club, he did not get out of the club in a bad was (as Leko or Grelaish did), but after trying so hard to fit him in the team’s scheme, it was clear that there was no room for him at The Hawthorns, with the squad playing much better with Fofana instead of him.
Jack Grealish - to Manchester United for 75 million € - did not perform on the pitch, wanted to leave as soon as possible, again, a free signing that reports a 75 million profit for the club, but you don't want players so unhappy in the team or you could easily lose the trust your players have.
Jonathan Leko - to Manchester United for 75 million € - after 5 seasons in the first team, he decided it was time for a new challenge at Old Trafford due to his lack of minuted (I feel this was a bit of an excuse, as he did have the playtime he deserved, playing even more games than top-scorer Emmanuel Dennis)
Hector Bellerin - to Barcelona for 30 million € - after he agreed to stay until the end of the season due to the big trouble the team was going through january, when Barcelona tried to sign him again in summer there was no choice but to let him go. A true gentleman who believed in the early-stages of this project that leaves the club after 3 seasons. Now Ferguson was ready to take on his place on the RB.
Patson Daka - to Real Madrid for 60 million € - he did a pretty rubish season, only scoring 6 goals, and although he was a sub, he played a lot of games, had many chances, but just missed pretty much all of them.
Fabio Silva went on loan to Roma to have a bot of more playtime. His 1st season was much better than Parrot’s one, then the second one was the other way around, so I let one go temporarily.
The departures of Grealish and Tielemans were no big deal as they were not a crucial part of the squad, Bellerin, although he was a great player, did not have any progression left, while Ferguson was already ahead of him in terms of numbers, was younger and did had a lot of potential to unleash yet. So the only really harmful sell was Leko to United.
Diogo Jota - from Wolverhampton Wanderers for free - this was the only free signing of this transfer window, as the club did not want to keep with this politic of signing players that were running out of contract, as it was a maneuver to expand the club at a low cost. 87 OVR, did not have much to do in a club fighting in the midfield of the Premier League. He was a great option for both the left of the field and as a partner for Dennis.
Renato Sanches - from Monaco for 56 million € - the struggle for finding a good rated player to play alongside Perira continued, but Sanches was clearly a good option, as the player that had worked better with the Brazilian was Fofana, with 80 ish on all his stats, and Renato was a bit ahead of him in pretty much each way. A player with both good defensive and offensive skills.
Allan Saint-Maximin - from Newcastle United for 45 million € - Although Diogo Jota could play in the left, his signing was mostly to be a striker, so Sessegnon still did not have a natural sub, which made it difficult to have him in shape for the big games.
Moise Kean - from Everton for 50 million € - I was not very confident about the signing of Diogo Jota, as other free players that came in did not perform as expected (Tielemans, Grealish), so Kean was a good option that I had been tracking for years, and now his time had come at WBA.
Diego Lainez - from Betis for 40 million € - I did not have a decent sub for Diatta and although he played most of the games I wanted one just in case he got injured or there was little time between important matches
Team full of powerful rotations on all positions
This was honestly one banger of a season. The main objective was to be back on top of our game and be competitive again in the Premier League, as last year was a bit of a disaster. This time there was not gonna be experiments as Tielemans was last year, I knew the one that worked better with Pereira was Fofana and he started playing since day 1 of the season, with Renato Sanches having some minutes looking for substitute Fofana, but unfortunately no remarkable games from Sanches proved me that maybe he was not the replacement for Fofana neither. On th other side, the formula that we did know that worked did absolute wonders, and we finished the season unbeaten, with 4 draws, and 106 points, we claimed our second Premier League of our history, just 2 points ahead of Liverpool, who just lost 2 games of the season, both of them against us (0-4 at Anfield, they were one men down since minute 30, and 2-0 at The Hawthorns, so without both victories we wouldn’t have won the league). In the Carabao Cup final we defeated also Liverpool 3-1, a result that also was seen in the Uefa Champions League final, also against Klopp’s squad. No, we did not win the FA cup against Liverpool in the final (we knocked them out in the extra time of the quarter finals), we won it against Manchester City 2-0. The quadruple was ours, but this journey was far from ended. One remarkable moment in the season was the UCL semi-finals against Atletico de Madrid, We drawed 1-1 at The Hawthorns, and in the second leg Matheus Pereira was given a red card after just 20 minutes, so things were looking absolutely horrible. Dennis managed to give us the lead with 25 minutes to go, but Atletico managed to tie just after the kick-off. We went onto extra time and then onto the penalties, which, if you remember, did not give us good memories from a few years ago losing both the Carabao Cup and FA cup semi finals in the shootout. Fortunately, this time we managed to win 4-3. In the january transfer window Brandon Williams returned from his loan from RB Leipzig (and got a lot of playtime just behind Maouassa as Tierney was a bit stuck in terms of progression).
The pictures that I have posted of the team are from the start of each season, but don't tell the full story (i.e. Maouassa starts s5 on the bench as he almost went to barcelona on deadline day so until he renewed his contract he did not play on the starting XI, then mid season he gets his position back and starts s6 as usual)
So guys this has been the story until season 6 of this journey with the baggies, if you have come this far just wanted to say thank you as this has been a lot of work (not only playing, but also writing, again sry for the bad english, and a lot of memory work as I did not have almost anything catalogued). I will be doing another separate post at least for seasons 7 & 8 where I have catalogued a lot more and I have them much more recent in my brain xD. Again thank you for the read, and don't hesitate on leave your opinion or ask anything (if you have beem able to go through all of this)
2020.09.14 08:39 Corner-stats Statistical analysis of corners in EPL (general analysis, by parts of the season, by ratios of indicators, by match intervals)
The team of football statistics service Corner-stats.com welcomes all football fans in anticipation of the start of English Premier League, Spanish LaLiga and other championships.submitted by Corner-stats to u/Corner-stats [link] [comments]
The purpose of this preview is to analyze the statistics of corners in the Premier League of England in the season 2019/20, and we will do this using a variety of tools for statistics analysis of the service Corner-stats.com.
First, let's take a look at the summary table of corners stats for the 2019/20 season (https://corner-stats.com/premier-league/england/tournament/1). Among the leaders on corners we see teams such as Manchester City, Chelsea, Leicester and Liverpool, which attack a lot and sharply, as well as Wolverhampton, which does not take too many corners, but also does not allow opponents to take corners.
In terms of analysis of corners at home and away, we would like to highlight the teams Aston Villa and Sheffield United, which are much better at serving corners at home than at away, but Southampton, surprisingly, has much better results on corners at away.
Users of the Corner-stats.com service have the opportunity to compare the statistics of teams within a tournament separately by halves, 15-minutes intervals, or form any interval (from a minute to a minute of a match). We think it will not be difficult for you to understand these tools and determine right statistical trends.
Relations of indicators
So, we have identified the leaders on corners in the Premier League in the previous season, and there is nothing strange that among them there are mainly teams that have a lot of ball possession, attack and shoot on goal. However, we can neutralize these factors using the Corner-stats.com website's tool Relations of indicators. If we compare the teams in terms of the team percentage of ball possession / team corners, then among the leaders we will see Sheffield United (7.7% of possession for 1 corner) and Aston Villa (8.32% for 1 corner), while Manchester City is only in 3rd place, and Liverpool generally in the middle of the table. In terms of team shots / team corners, Sheffield United is also in the 1st place (the team needs 1.66 shots on average for 1 corner), while Manchester United has the worst rate (2.67 shots for 1 corner).
Let's compare teams in terms of total corners in a match. The leader on this indicator is Arsenal (12.11 on avg.), but note that Arsenal had a lot of corners only under coach Unai Emery in the first half of the season (13.42), and after the appointment as head coach of Arteta, Arsenal's total corners decreased to the league average (10.86). We wrote more about this in our preview: https://corner-stats.com/filter-by-the-current-coach-of-a-team/info/311 The smallest total corners in Wolverhampton (8.97), which, as we noted above, delivers little corners and allows little to deliver opponents.
In addition, we want to note that in the first matches after the quarantine, the Premier League teams were delivering more corners (11.42 on average), we wrote about this in detail in our preview: https://corner-stats.com/teams-stats-comparison-before-and%20-after-the-quarantine/info/319 As a reminder, using the "Date from - Date to" filter, you can study the statistics of a tournament for various periods (the beginning of the season, the end of the season, matches in winter, matches after the quarantine, etc.).
Match intervals analysis
And finally, let's analyze how the teams were delivering corners in different situations in a match, namely, when the team was leading, playing in a draw or was losing. To do this, use the Match Intervals filter: https://corner-stats.com/match-intervals-filter-functionality-expanded/info/313 So, we have 3 clear leaders on corners on intervals when there was a draw in a match - Manchester City (+5.45), Liverpool (+2.72), Chelsea (+4.55). There is a very noticeable difference in corners of Manchester City when the team was winning (7.28 total corners and +2.43 handicap on corners), and when it was losing during a match (16.43 total and +12.4 handicap). But Newcastle is consistently losing on corners regardless of the score in a match (-2.09 at winning intervals, -3.09 at draw intervals, -2.03 at losing intervals).
We also draw your attention to the fact that none of the Premier League teams changed their coach before the start of the 2020/21 season, which is a positive factor in favor of maintaining the statistical trends of the teams of the last season.
Once again, congratulations to everyone on the start of the new football season, and we hope that our Premier League corners stats preview will help you to dig deeper into the team statistics and make money on it. Have a nice football!

2020.09.01 01:27 AbhimanuGoyal Reviewing the 2014/15 Season, Best/Worst Matches, Highs/Lows - by BluFF
After reviewing Mourinho's first season back after his initial run (2013/14), I decided to review his second season in charge, which we know brought some much-awaited trophies back to the bridge as we reclaimed the premier league as well as the capital one cup. So how did we do this? What were our best matches, worst matches, general highs/lows from this season? Let's find out.submitted by AbhimanuGoyal to chelseafc [link] [comments]
Title Challenge: MANY were expecting us to challenge, especially after the singings we made (securing Diego Costa, Fabregas, Felipe Luis, and Drogba). Plus, we all knew about Mourinho's second season and his serial track record of ALWAYS winning a trophy in his second season. But there were still some concerns, could the old guards still deliver? Will Mourinho bench Petr Cech and play returning loanee Thibaut Courtois? Will losing Lukaku permanently to Everton in the TW be costly? or the departure of veteran players like Lampard, Cole, Torres, Ba, and Eto'o? Well, we know the answers now, but back then it wasn't as clear cut. Does Fabregas still have it? Will Costa adapt to the premier league? Well, I think they did alright for us lol, we topped the table by matchday 3 and never gave it up this season.
Let's talk about some of the least memorable games/moments from this season
Manchester City 1-1 Chelsea: Lampard scoring against us. What was worse was this ended our perfect start to the league campaign. Lampard was on loan from NYCFC, after Chelsea decided not to extend his contract at the end of the 2013/14 season. I did enjoy his celebration, it was respectful and not apologetic, as it should be.
Tottenham 5-3 Chelsea: Getting wrecked by Harry Kane at WHL in the league. This result halted our momentum and was the 2nd out of 3 losses we would incur all season. Kane scored 2, assisted another 2 and won the penalty which he didn't even take! That's how fresh he was. His coming-out party. Spurs released a 5-3 DVD shortly after this game, the clowns.
Chelsea 2-4 Bradford, FA Cup 4th round: If this happened last season we probably wouldn't think twice, but back in 2015, this was shocking, we were up 2-0 and ended up losing 2-4 LOL. This was when our home was still a fortress, when Mourinho's defensive prowess was a thing, so this was ultimately chalked up as a freak result.
Shocking exit at the hands of PSG in the KO, CL: Chelsea did well in the away leg, coming away with a 1-1 scoreline, and things were all set for us in the second leg, with a 1-0 lead against 10 men PSG (Ibra sent off) with 10 minutes to play, ENTER Ex-Chelsea player DAVID LUIZ, he didn't shy away from letting us know who scored, and it was at the death as well. What made it worse is we led again in ET only for now Chelsea player Thiago Silva to break our hearts again at the death, with another header, to send Chelsea packing. This was hard to take.
Newcastle 2-1 Chelsea: Back when Cisse was borderline world-class, and couldn't stop scoring against Chelsea, and we also couldn't stop getting mugged off at St. James Park. This result ended our then club record of 14 games unbeaten (Conte would beat this record 2 seasons later).
Home draw game against Burnley in the business end of the season, spawned the famous Mourinho \"minute 30, 33, 43, 69\" post-match presser, those numbers represented the minutes of horrendous refereeing in this game, minute 69 was the infamous Barnes tackle on Matic which could have EASILY ended Matic's career, and Barnes didn't even get booked! Matic ended up getting sent off and missing the COC final, I hate Burnley and Sean Dyche with a passion because of this game (still do)
Now let's talk about some of the memorable games from this season
Burley 1-3 Chelsea: With the other top 5 all having shaky results in round 1 of games, our season opener against neandertals Burnley away on a rainy night was not the easiest, especially going a goal down early. What came after is a thunderous strike from debutant Diego Costa and arguably one of the greatest assists in Chelsea history, that Cesc fake-shot ala volley pass through a wall of Burnley players to Schurrle for the tap in. What a statement win this was.
Everton 3-6 Chelsea: There is always a game in a season that makes you think you are watching something special, this was the game for me. Going up 2-0 inside 3 minutes at a very tricky ground for us historically, was incredible, Diego absolutely terrorized Everton. This was also the first of 10 assists Cesc would give to Diego. This game was nuts btw, there was a period of 10 minutes ('67 to '77) where 5 goals were scored! Every top side was put on notice, that Chelsea means business this year. This game featured Mikel's backheel assist, highly underrated.
Chelsea 2-0 Arsenal: There was a reason Diego became an instant cult hero and was known as the darling of Stamford Bridge. 9 goals in his first 7 games, including a hat trick and of course this iconic goal against bitter rivals Arsenal (another Cesc assist). This game also featured one Eden Hazard's best dribbles, where he took apart Arsenal's defense and won a penalty.
Stoke City 0-2 Chelsea: Remember those cold rainy away nights to Stoke? Well, this was one of those nights, but we had a lead to defend/maintain. Terry opened the scoring early but what followed was a tense period of Stoke pressure, and when Fabregas ultimately put Chelsea in front 2-0 with a scrappy goal, there was a huge relief (as can be seen with his famous celebration in front of the away support), this was a big away win to maintain our lead at the top of the table.
Chelsea 1-0 Everton: Everyone played their part this season. Having only a slender 4 point lead over Manchester City, and lucky not to be trailing in this game, if not for a world-class Cech save denying Lukaku from scoring, Willian came up huge with one of his finest goals in a Chelsea shirt in the 90th to seal 3 massive points for Chelsea against a stubborn Howard, to put Chelsea 7 points clear at the top.
Swansea 0-5 Chelsea: This was peak Mourinho's Chelsea 2014/15, we had played terrific expansive football in the first 2/3 of the season, and this was our best performance, 4-0 up in 30 or so minutes away to a good side. Oscar and Diego ran riot, Chelsea scored a beautiful team goal and Willian hit two posts, all inside the first half.
Other noteworthy points from this season:
Eden Hazard's rise to world-class supremacy: In my 2013/14 review I talked about how Eden stepped up and delivered more consistency (17 goals) and won an individual award (PFA young player of the year), well the next step is to continue that consistency and help win Chelsea a trophy. Well, he did that and more! Same consistency (19 goals), won the most prestigious individual award there is to win (PFA POTS), and played a MASSIVE part in helping Chelsea win the premier league title, with vital contributions in the business end of this season as evidenced by the images above and points below. He became a world-class player this season. I hope we have a similar trajectory with Christian Pulisic.
Those two signings: This might be recency bias, but IMO, I don't think we have made two better signings in the modern Abramovich Era then Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas. Our TW business after this season absolutely shat the bed, but in this window, we had one of our best windows, which is of course being rivaled by the 2020 TW. But never have two signings had such an immediate impact then Costa and Fabregas did this season. I certainly hope Ziyech, Werner, Havertz follow the same success that these two had in 2014/15 (and again in 2016/17).
Cesc was coming off a decent enough spell with Barcelona and a lot of baggage from his Arsenal days had everything going against him. But he made us forget all of that by contributing his best assists tally every, a staggering 18 assists, 2 off the premier league record.
Costa was coming off knocking us out of the Champions League semi-finals last season (and coming within seconds of winning it in the finals), had a lot of excitement to be fair. He was a Mourinho player. And boy did he deliver, 20 premier league goals in his debut season, including many big goals (Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs, COC final, etc.)
We have to talk about him: If things hadn't worked out the way they did with a certain ex-keeper of ours (who is miles ahead of our current keeper lol), I would have made this "Those three signings" because Courtois played his part and had an excellent first season, vital saves against Leicester, Liverpool, Sunderland, Burnley etc. where the matches were in the balance or at 0-0, and his saves were massive.
Big goals Branislav Ivanovic: This is personal bias because Ivanovic is a personal favorite player of mine, but there was a period of a few weeks where he scored such vital goals in big games. This includes his winner against Liverpool in the 4th minute of ET in the second leg of the COC semi-finals to send Chelsea to Wembley. His incredible weak foot volley in the second half against plucky Aston Villa to seal 3 points for Chelsea in a tricky away game. And he also scored the away goal against PSG in the first leg. Seriously, need a big goal? Call big goal Brana. What a servant.
Overall Thoughts: We had very high expectations this season and Mourinho delivered and then some, we did business in the TW very well, and that set us up perfectly for the season. Mourinho still had that aura where his players fought for him, when he did the whole "us against the world" mentality, probably the last season where he was able to pull that off sadly. It all went downhill after this season. But this season was special, two trophies, and we ended up winning the title at a canter. Lots of players stepped up at vital times when Costa was out, Drogba filled in, when Drogba was out, Remy filled in. Matic and Cesc were immense in the middle and worked well with Willian/Ramires picking up the slack defensively. Breakout season for Azpi, who held his own at LB. Cahill, Terry, and Ivanovic were terrific as well. Lots of positive football this season, first half especially was really fun, contrary to what some rivals might say. Only real disappointment was the CL campaign.
TL:DR: One of the best transfer windows in recent memory (at that time), three signings who contributed immensely to winning the title (Cesc, Costa, T-Bo). Fantastic backline and Eden Hazard, who officially became a world-class player. Won the COC. Disappointing end to the CL campaign. Last pleasant Mourinho memory. Guv'nor + Magic Hat = Happiness.
2020.08.30 20:03 dsut22 A background to the 7th
submitted by dsut22 to ukdrill [link] [comments]
A background into the 7th, formerly known as E7 Crips, Forest Gate, East London.
Forest Gate town centre
Many drill fans will definitely have heard of the Forest Gate group in drill as it's very active in the drill scene and its intense rivalry with certain other East London areas like Custom House, Beckton and Leytonstone, I've seen many other pages with talk about 7th like the music they produce and who they beef, but for people new to UK Drill (or who do not know some of the history of the 7th gang) I trust you will find the background to Forest Gate, and its actual precursors intriguing. It took me a while to gather information on a group not as widely known as other London groups. I may do more of these, I could do 6th based in Beckton and maybe Manor Park based in the Manor Park and Cage area.
The gang was formulated in Forest Gate area of Newham across different roads and estates of the area such as the Woodgrange Estate based along Woodgrange Road (E7), Blackwater Close (E7) and their territory extends to the nearby Wanstead Flats (E11) area. The area borders Manor Park (E12), Stratford (E7, E15 and E20), Plashet (E6 and E7) and West Ham (E3, E13 and E15). Many of their allies are based in these areas, in particular Manor Park and Stratford.
ECG was the initials for E7 Crip Gang. The Woodgrange area of Forest Gate is nicknamed ''Gaza'' by members of the E7 gang especially in their drill music lyrics, most likely named after the Gaza Strip in relation to how much violence the E7 postcode has seen in many years. ''BWC'' is the initials for Blackwater Close which is another set of the 7th gang.
A number of past and current generations of gangs have existed in Newham and other London boroughs that associate with the colour blue, some of which in the past had also self-identified themselves as Crips. One of the first of these was the short lived Cripset from Dorset Road which claimed affiliation to the Rollin 80's Crips in Los Angeles. The gang was most active throughout the mid 2000's and were rivals to 031 Bloods, now know simply as 031 (O-Tray One) based in the Patmore and Hartington estates. This is seen as a massive influence on London from the famous American rival gangs Bloods and Crips.
7th themselves no longer claim Crips as their predecessor did.
There are a number of other gangs in London which have been linked with the colour blue. The Ghetto Boys from New Cross and Deptford have always used the colour blue, whilst the borough of Lewisham in which they are located in nicknamed 'Blu Borough' and can still be seen using blue street signs to this day, this is due to the use of the colour blue by local government, the street scene in Lewisham is characterised by blue - for example blue street signs.
Some of ECG/7th's rivalries have identified with colours themselves such as Beckton/6th who used to be known as Beckton Black Gang, identify with the colour black and also Custom House who used to be called Custom House White Gang, identify with the colour white.
Current beef and alliances
E7 Crips and the current 7th gang have had the same rivalries between gangs but some of the rivalries were rid of and have now become alliances during the current generation of the E7 gang, the 7th. The current generation of the mass rivalry in Newham has split the Newham borough into two factions, Northside Newham and Southside Newham. 7th belong to the Northside Newham faction. All of Northside Newham beef Southside Newham.
Northside Newham allies: 15th (E15), CGE (Chad Green) (E13), Maryland (E15), Thatched House Thugs (Northside Newham), E-Block (Northside Newham) and Smooth Money Makers (Northside Newham).
Southside Newham rivalries: 6th/ACG(Anyone Can Go)/Hammerville (E6), Custom House (E16), Loyal Soldiers (Leytonstone) (E11), Britannia Village, Canning Town Grey Gang (E16) and Leyton (Southside alliance).
Forest Gate never really had much of the multi-generational phases of gangs, which would have had each generation taking on their own identity and name, in comparison to other London Boroughs such as Haringay, Lambeth and Waltham Forest. Woodgrange Estate and Forest Gate as whole, where the E7 gang was formed, had long had music being produced before they descended into gang violence in the mid-2000s, previously being called the gang Mobb'd Out Crew and Kamikaze Crew. In reports of the late 1990s, Forest Gate and many areas of East London as a whole was characterized as deprived in income, employment, health and crime.
E7 Crips was created around 2003 which had been composed of a mixture of street gang link ups such as the Smooth Money Makers and older music collectives such as the Kamikaze Crew and Mobb'd Out Crew that have been around since 2003. The Crips identity and association with the colour blue was instigated from their rivalry with nearby Maryland Bloods and this was one of the earliest Blood vs Crips feud along with Crips vs 031 Bloods in South London. The rivalry with Maryland Bloods consisted of certain members or factions within the gang and was not reduced to an area wide conflict, multiple areas in Newham had been involved.
Today Maryland and E7 do not beef anymore and are instead linked together. When it was the generation of the E7 Crips, the older members of the gangs beefed Maryland Bloods but the younger members did not.
A number of notable crimes have taken place in the area since the E7 Crips/7th were established.
Rest of the 2000's
However, some of Newham's gangs also began to fragment due to leaders of the gang being jailed, leaving a leadership vacuum in their place. Independent factions developed, with some younger members of Newham Gangs now referring to themselves as the 6th(or the trap 6, and later simply ACG). whereas some GAS Gang members from elsewhere like Canning Town now referring to themselves as CT or ''Grey Town. The fragmenting also led to infighting between the two new factions now known as Southside Newham and Northside Newham.
However, what we know as the current rivalry today was created due to the killing a 15-year-old boy was stabbed to death in east London following an apparent confrontation between members of a large group of youths who had attended an event run by an anti-violence charity.
Lewis was stabbed several times in the chest in Whitwell Road, Plaistow, at about 10.45pm on Saturday. He was pronounced dead in hospital. It was the first violent death of a teenager in the capital for two months.
The Metropolitan police identified him as Steven Lewis, who lived locally. A photograph of the teenager was placed on the MySpace social networking site alongside messages including "Ull never B forgotten" and "Rest in perfect peace, bruv".
Two women, who said they were from Steven's extended family but asked not to be named, said his brother and sister had been with him when he was stabbed. "His sister was holding him when he was dying," one said. "She's 16 herself. His brother is 13 and saw everything."
A number of notable crimes have taken place in the area since the E7 Crips have established. Mahmood Jama was gunned down by rivals at Whyteville House near Woodgrange in January 2010. The victim who was from Plaistow was found shot in the chest at the address on 6th January. Mohammed Ali, also known as Tray, was sent to Broadmoor mental hospital following his trial for the murder in June 2011. Jama was shot in the chest as the pair tussled over a shotgun at Whyteville House.
Mahamoud Jama, 21, of Plaistow, east London, was shot in the chest and found on a first-floor landing at Whyteville House in Forest Gate, in January 2010.
Mohamed Ali, of Romford Road, Forest Gate, was convicted of manslaughter and possession of a firearm but cleared of murder, at the Old Bailey.
Maurece Lewis, 19, of Haslemere Road, Ilford, was found guilty of assisting an offender.
The sentencing date for both men is yet to be set.
Det Ch Insp Mark Dunne said: "Our thoughts are with Mahamoud's family and friends."
The gang leaders, who were in custody, persuaded other defendants who were on bail to bring cannabis into the courtroom, the court heard. They were all members of a gang known as the "Smooth Money Makers" who were arrested after striking in the wake of the Notting Hill Carnival in August last year.
The thugs had wielded broken beer bottles to frighten passengers into handing over mobile phones and digital cameras. Other victims were punched and kicked as the youths ran riot on the Central and Bakerloo lines before targeting a packed bus in Bethnal Green. During their trial at Snaresbrook crown court they struggled with security staff and shouted obscenities. At the end of the four-week case yesterday the jury convicted the eight of conspiracy to rob.
Ali claimed that the gun went off accidentally and that he had only arrived armed to scare off a group of people who objected to him dealing drugs in the area. Following his conviction for murder psychiatrists diagnosed Ali as suffering from psychosis and personality disorder traits. He was sent to Broadmoor under sections 37 and 41 of the Mental Health Act. It was believed that Ali had got into trouble with a number of drug dealers who resented him encroaching on their territory.
The Smooth Money Makers (SMM) gang were known heavily by the police with their hate for the law. One member of the gang, Fhazio Mulwinda, carried out a £25,000 cash box snatch whilst on his way to court for an earlier raid. He was already due in court for being the driver of a getaway vehicle for a heist at an Esso petrol station. When he failed to turn up at court it emerged he had been arrested at the scene of another robbery of Alliance and Leicester.
A number of the SMM appeared at court on a range of charges. During the trial they shouted and were boisterous and dropped bags of cannabis in the dock which had been sneaked in by friends. Mulwinda laughed in the face of Flying Squad officers as he told them an endless line of youngsters were ready to fill his shoes. Another member Neeko Brooks boasted “You can’t stop it, all the young’uns are coming up”.
Several members of the gang were jailed two years earlier for having robbed passengers on the Central and Bakerloo line as they journeyed home from the Notting Hill carnival. Mulwinda was at that time on bail for another cash box robbery that had occurred in Leyton. Numerous members of the gang have a string of convictions for theft, robbery and drugs offences. Despite the gangs youthfulness they were highly sophisticated in their planning and execution of the cash-box robberies and often used two cars, one for surveillance and one to getaway.
After this the gangs in London started to drop the usage of Crips and Bloods into the gang names and began to use gang names that are more modern and still in usage as of the present day and that includes the E7 gang.
In the 2010's, prominent members of several gangs in Newham started to get sentences for murders, Terngu Agera (aka Mover), Bruno Guimaraes (Southside Newham member ), Stephen Lansana (Southside Newham member, Marlon O'Brien, from Custom House), were all involved and sentenced to a total of 35 years in prison for the murder of Lithuanian painter.
Corey Junior Davis who was known on the roads as CJ was allegedly an affiliate or member of the 7th gang and he was shot dead in a playground in Newham, east London, on the 4th of September 2017.
A review said Corey, who once ordered a bulletproof vest for protection, was seen as an offender and not an exploited child when he aired his fears.
The area's mayor said she was "profoundly sorry" for Corey's death.
A serious case review found the teenager had been groomed by gangs from the age of 13.
It said Corey, who had severe ADHD but had achieved above-average grades in primary school, was not properly catered for when he moved to secondary sch
CB is thought of by many as the best artist in the drill music genre. He currently has a younger called Y.CB (Young CB) making music for the 7th.
''Lekan Akinsoji, 21, aka CB, and three other gang members were pursued by officers after they embarked on a ‘ride out’ to target rivals in east London, the Old Bailey heard.'' - Metro
''The chase came to an end when the BMW was driven the wrong way down a one-way street in Leytonstone. Akinsoji emerged from the car wearing a ‘frightening’ clown mask and all four gang members were wearing gloves and had their faces either partially or fully covered. A fifth man, who was behind the wheel, fled on foot and was not arrested, the court heard. Police seized an arsenal of weapons, including a loaded sawn-off shotgun, two lock knives, an axe, a machete, a hunting knife and a zombie knife.'' - Metro
7th have still continued to drop more music such as:
C1NNA x YB - Twinning
CB - The Things
Yanko x Y.CB - No Hook
Y.CB x Yanko - Love It
