West Brom's Deadline Day: Good business? Anichebe & Sessegnon Stats

Deadline day was unusually busy for West Brom, with the Baggies bringing in 4 players, as they look for some much needed inspiration following a poor start to the season. They have failed to score in their first 3 games and only picking up 1 point in the process. The first two signings of deadline day were: French Midfielder Morgan Amalfitano on a season long loan from Marseille, whilst Lee Camp joined on a rolling monthly contract as cover for …

James Morrison Influence vs Everton | James Morrison Stats

In the past few seasons, James Morrison has firmly established himself as one of West Brom's key performers under the successful spells of first Roy Hodgson and now Steve Clarke. Morrison has been at his most successful and influential for Albion when played in central midfield, often just behind the striker. That's why it was baffling to see Morrison shunted into a wide role in the opening game of the season against Southampton, and it was all together less surprising …

Scott Sinclair | The perfect fit for West Brom? | Stats

West Bromwich Albion are said to be closing in on a season long loan deal for Manchester City winger Scott Sinclair, with the option of a permanent deal at the end of the loan spell. Sinclair is certainly a signing that West Brom need, as there is a severe lack of pace in the wide areas, mostly down to the continued absence of Peter Odemwingie who has been exiled from the first team squad after all of the transfer window …

Diego Lugano | What are West Brom getting? | Stats

Last week, West Brom completed the signing of Uruguay captain Diego Lugano on a free transfer from French champions Paris St. Germain. In terms of purely name value, this is a big signing for Albion. Lugano comes with a fantastic pedigree and a very decent reputation. However, the signing of the centre back has been questioned in some quarters, with suggestions that the Uruguayan is “past it” and is a poor signing, especially as he will be on decent money. …
Can Shane Long be the man to replace Romelu Lukaku?

Can Shane Long be the man to replace Romelu Lukaku?

This week, West Brom full back Steven Reid credited Shane Long with invigorating the success of Romelu Lukaku’s loan spell at the Hawthorns in the 2012/2013 season. He believes that he can perform a similar role for Nicolas Anelka this upcoming season. However, Reid’s comments got me thinking. Is Long capable of being the man to replace Lukaku, rather than being a foil to any potential replacement for the Belgian forward? Before looking at the most important areas for the …

Albion interest for Anelka | Anelka Stats

Recent reports have linked West Brom with a move for former France international Nicolas Anelka. Just take a second to for that thought to digest. Anelka, a man who has racked up an aggregate transfer fee of over £90 million in his career with various moves around European and World football. This isn’t just another transfer season rumour either, there is seemingly a confirmed interest in Anelka from West Brom, with two bookmakers even going as far as to make …

West Bromwich's Summer Transfer Targets | Sinclair & Kone Stats

The key to a summer signing made by any club is that they fit into the style of play and formation favoured by the Head Coach, and West Brom are no different to this rule. Steve Clarke’s favoured formation is without doubt a 4-2-3-1 and it proved to be hugely successful in the opening half of the season for The Baggies. This formation was so effective because of the options available to Steve Clarke on the wings. His preferred duo …
