    What would you do.....

    with the 4 WBA players who "stole" the taxi. Assume they were Derby players and we were battling relegation from the Prem.

    I would think there is a clause in their contracts that would allow the club to terminate them for breach of discipline. If so, would you enforce it.

    Personally, I would fire all 4 of them, promote 4 youngsters from the academy, and start planning for next season in the Championship.

    Drop them for the remainder of the season and try to offload in the summer. As you say, promote 4 youngsters and use these 4 experienced pro's (if you can call them that) as a demonstration of what will happen if anyone else breaks the club's disciplinary rules.

    Surprised with the players involved, they not young players even a few older experienced players involved. The whole trip seems bit odd with fa cup game few days away.

    As for punishment their I heavy fine them and make them ďo and apology, then get them to prove by working harder on pitch a

    Maximum fine, maximum suspension, put them in the U23s to replace the 4 promoted lads.

    I wouldn't sack them as they would be free to go elsewhere and WBA would get no fee. However, if their contract iis up this summer....... I would just let them go now. No fee but no wages either.

    Time for clubs to put down a marker.

    Treat footballers and all other so-called "celebrities" like the rest of us,
    though I'd probably be harder than most magistrates -

    Fines in proportion to income for serious offences, so it hurts
    Mandatory loss of licence for drink and drive, plus rehab course (maybe run by AA)
    No more rubbish about needing to drive for jobs - should have thought of that before DUI
    Jail for repeat offenders - no need to wait till they maim or kill someone

    If they want to leave their club, they should buy out their contracts, otherwise
    they can train on their own (but not play) until their contracts run out

    Maybe then they'll get that other people's lives and property matter more than their stupidity

    I get the feeling that the fab 4 realise that West Brom are going down and are probably trying to leave the club by anyway possible, although i must say Boaz Myhill is shit
