Lookalikes: Tony Mowbray and his West Brom tribute mask

Posted by - May 11, 2009 - Lookalikes, West Brom

This is the mask… smokin’

Remember we told you that West Brom fans were plotting a mask tribute to Tony Mowbray for the final game of the season? Well, here is a sneak preview of the mask.

Organiser Dean Walton, of Mask-arade.com, kindly sent the photo in. He said: “Mask-arade.com will hand out a Tony Mowbray mask to every Albion supporter as they enter Ewood Park. The masks will carry instructions asking everyone to don the masks one minute before the 4.00pm kick-off.

“The masks will create a unique sight never before seen at a football match anywhere in the world.”

Can’t wait! It should be the most miserable-looking football crowd since Stamford Bridge last Wednesday.

    Rob Parker – you talk absolute nonsense! Miserable crowd??? You do NOT know the Albion fans.

    Erm… it was referring to the fact that you’re all going to have Tony Mowbray’s dour face on? You know, the masks (it was sort of the point of the post).

    Really didn’t see that one going over anyone’s head!

    It’s alright, Rob. Football fans, innit?

    Is there any chance that WBA could stay up and the North East could lose all three teams? I, for one, would be more than happy to see this phenomenon take place, if not just to add a little perspective to that side of the country.

    Not sure if that was a maths question or a Jim’ll Fix It type request! If it was the former, it is possible. A draw in the Tyne-Tees tonight and then all three NE teams losing their remaining 2 games would do the trick if West Brom won both games.

    Alternatively, West Brom could stay up with a win and a draw if Newcastle, Boro and Hull lose both games (hope Hull are NE enough for you!).

    And if it was a Jim’ll Fix It request, out of my league, I’m afraid. You’ll have to write to the man himself!
