Remembering happier days at The Hawthorns

West Brom beat us again

Tomorrow night we visit West Bromwich Albion. They’re a team with very realistic promotion ambitions, and as they’re coming off a 1-0 defeat to their bitter rivals Wolves we’re likely to face a very good team with a point to prove.

We haven’t won at West Brom in over a decade. It’s a far cry from when we used to go there and despatch the home team with unlikely contributions like “meatball headers” and full-backs scoring first half hat-tricks. A return to those days tomorrow night would be very pleasant indeed.

This is where the official site would tell you that we’re 9/2 to win with Eaglesbet. However I wouldn’t recommend that to you, as I don’t think it is the likely outcome (c’mon, reverse jinx – work!).
