Agreed. West Brom haven't really faced any of the top 6 sides, other than Boro and that was a crap game dominated by set pieces and hoofball. Haven't seen anyone move and pass the ball like us or put in as an impressive display as we did v either Derby, Norwich, Stoke or Wendies. I'd be really gutted if we didn't go up this year.
I think we all would be gutted SG but things could go pear-shape as they often do in football

We need some luck not incurring too many injuries which we haven't had in the first two months of the season, had Roofe & Pablo been available I feel we'd be clear at the top of the championship now, no recognised CB at Swansea didn't help our cause too !

More importantly we must hold to Bielsa, if he goes I reckon it would all go tits up :(

Boro and Sheff Utd both on the same points as us with 22
Leading on Goal difference.
Scottish Steel and Irish Fire that's the weapon I desire.

Now that IS a direct comparison Leon, given the timescale - we came from behind to draw and WBA scored 2 late goals to come from behind and draw.

Still nice to be top though.

Shows how tight it is, Forest 5th all night with a 2-0 lead, Millwall draw level and they're down to 11th.

Looks like there are no Championship games on Friday night, so we will still be top come kick off Saturday 12.15. If we can go three points clear at the top, it will give everyone else something to think about come 3.00.

That's the way Swannie

Keep the pressure on the chasing pack

Just spoke to my brother who watched the game tonight, he wasn't all the impressed with the baggies, he said their defence looks dodgy as did the Sky pundits.

Is Bartley the real deal? Pontus is a far better CB imo !

Somewhat surprised that Sheff U won at Blackburn, but all in all not a bad set of results for us :)

Wilder appears to be a half-decent manager, he seems to get the best out of his squad of players, they fell away in the latter part of last season, let hope the blunts will lose their sharpness again :roflmao:

Not convinced that West Brom are a good team.

Whenever ive watched them they strike me as good individuals.

Gayle, Rodriguez, Barnes.

Your going to score goals with that 3, a good team imo would be more organised, more solid, more smooth.

WBA arent imo.

They happen to have a brilliant front 3.
