Thomas Gaardsøe

I saw that he played every single minute of the season after he got his debut, bar two minutes after a red card. I also saw he was voted Player of the Season by the fans.

Is he really that good? WBA is not shown a lot here. There's three spots left in Denmark's Euro squad. Do you think he's good enough to make it? I'm hoping he will get the call.

Yada, yada

Oh Yeah.

Tommy G is an icon at WBA.
He is cool at the back and oozes class.

Our lasta way game celebration were in honour of him, all the fans (4000) went dressed as vikings. In fcat the demand for tickets was so great that the club reckoned they could have sold 10000 for that game. It was a noting game as we'd already been promoted by then.

So you'll be seeing more of him next season
I think it would be good for him to go to Euro 2004, if only for the experience.

Nice.

Was it you who told me that his club fans went for a game all dressed up in suits as a cheeky response to being voted the worst-dressed fans. Maybe dressing up as vikings will improve your reputation somewhat.

Gaardsoe out to stop the rot
By Oliver Bhurrut


THOMAS Gaardsoe has labelled Albion's defending in their last two games as
"disastrous" and admitted he is disappointed with his own form.


The Baggies have shipped seven goals in back-to-back defeats against Crystal
Palace and Chelsea and the Danish international is determined to stop the
rot at Southampton on Saturday (ko 3pm).


Albion will be looking for their first win on their Premiership travels at
St Mary's against a Saints side who are the league's third lowest scorers
with eight in 11 games.


"It's an important game and hopefully we'll get something out of it," said
the Hawthorns defender.


"In the last two games we have conceded seven goals which is rubbish.


"The last two games have been a big disaster defensively.


"Personally, I haven't looked good in the last few games and I'm annoyed by
that.


"But I've just got to work hard and put things right because I know I'm
capable of better.


"As a team I'm sure we can go out and get the results we need.


"It's just a matter of time and working hard on the training pitch
everyday."

Albion have slipped to 17th spot in the table but remain one point and one
place above Steve Wigley's men.


The South coast outfit have been without star strikers James Beattie and
Kevin Phillips through injury.


But Gaardsoe has warned Saints still pose a danger as they showed after
coming within seconds of beating champions Arsenal at Highbury on Saturday,
only to be denied by Robin Van Persie's stoppage-time leveller to make it
2-2.


"It's going to be a difficult game looking at the position of the two sides
in the table," the 24-year-old stopper added.


"They got a great result at Arsenal so it will be tough.


"Even though they're missing Kevin Phillips and James Beattie they're still
a strong side.


"The teenage strikers they've been playing will also be trying hard to prove
themselves.


"But hopefully we'll return to the way we know we can defend and get our
first away win and first clean sheet on our travels."

Gaardsoe pens new deal
THOMAS Gaardsoe has given Albion a big pre-season boost by signing a new
three-year contract - and he insisted: "I'll give everything for the club."


The Baggies exercised their one-year option on the 25-year-old centre-half
earlier this summer but Gaardsoe has now committed himself to the club until
June 2008.


After being recalled for February's FA Cup exit at Tottenham, Gaardsoe
started Albion's final 13 games last term and played a key role as Bryan
Robson's men pulled off their unforgettable Great Escape.


And fan-favourite Gaardsoe is delighted to have extended his Hawthorns
stay - despite interest from other clubs.


"I'm really, really pleased to have signed a new three-year contract," he
said.

"There was no doubt in my mind when we were negotiating the deal that I
wanted to stay.

"I had a bit of interest from other clubs in this country and abroad but I
really wanted to stay at Albion where I'm very happy.

"I'm proud to play in front of these fans.


"They've been really good to me ever since I came to the club."

Gaardsoe hailed the impact Robson and his assistant Nigel Pearson have had
on the club during their eight months at the helm.


"I'm really happy with the new management team plus the atmosphere and
spirit at the club," he added.


"I think we've got some great years ahead of us.

"The gaffer and the club have shown me I'm in their plans for the future and
that means a lot to me.

"I can concentrate on my football now rather than worrying about my future.


"I'll give everything for the club."


Boss Robson is delighted to have tied up Gaardsoe's future.


"Thomas signing is good news for the club," he said.


"It means we have more or less got all of the squad players tied down for at
least two years.


"Thomas did very well after the turn of the year when I put him in the team
and deserves his new contract."


Gaardsoe joined Albion in a £520,000 deal from Ipswich almost two years ago.


He won the club's Player-of-the-Year award in his first season at The
Hawthorns en route to helping the Baggies clinch promotion back to the
Barclays Premiership.


Gaardsoe's Albion form has also seen him become a full Denmark
international.

Gaardsoe faces six-month lay-off
Thomas Gaardsoe
Gaardsoe's last Baggies game was in the 6-1 mauling by Fulham
West Brom defender Thomas Gaardsoe faces up to six months on the sidelines because of a persistent groin injury.

The Danish international has been troubled by the problem all season but was delaying surgery.

Gaardsoe, who has not played since February, said: "I've had a problem on and off for about a year.

"I wanted to avoid having this operation at all costs because it is quite a big operation which I knew would keep me out for a long time."

Baggies defender Gaardsoe retires




West Brom's Thomas Gaardsoe has announced his retirement.
The 27-year-old former Ipswich defender, who won two caps for Denmark, has been unable to regain his fitness following groin surgery in the summer.

He said: "Now it is just a matter of finalising negotiations with the club regarding the rest of my contract.

"Of course it's sad but I've had some good years as a footballer. The doctors can't find a solution as the injury is strange and has become chronic."

Gaardsoe made 89 appearances for the Baggies and scored four goals.

Ipswich paid Danish club Aalborg £1.3m for Gaardsoe in 2001 and he joined the Baggies two years later.





Its really sad to see him quit now. Tommy was one of the best players in his first season when he joined the team, to bad he had to quit so early.
Good luck Tommy
