New West Brom signing Peter Odemwingie takes swipe at club programme

Get with the programme, Baggies

Goalscoring West Brom debutant Peter Odemwingie seemed to have the perfect day on Saturday with a winning goal in his first match. But the Nigeria international did find one gripe: he wasn’t featured in the programme.

The Baggies new boy showed a complete lack of respect for printing deadlines when he sealed a move to The Hawthorns just hours before making his first appearance for the club against Sunderland. But while Odemwingie dealt with the upheaval just fine, the club’s programme writers just didn’t have time to fit in their new star.

He said: “I didn’t find myself in the programme of the day. I look for something but they didn’t write that I’m here, so I hope next week it is going to be a different case.”

And if you saw him say it, he didn’t sound quite as menacing as it does in writing. Still, I reckon a nervous West Brom hack will be clearing a few pages in the next edition!
