West Bromwich’s traditional problem has been goal scoring.  Since 2008/9 they have only had one player (Dwight Gayle) who has scored over 20 goals in a season – and that was in the Championship in 2018/19 when he got 23.   Indeed in five seasons since then they have not even had a single player who has scored in double figures.

Yet despite this they have did get to the heady position of 8th in 2012/13 in the Premier League.

Last season was their second in the Championship and this has been their general form – one or two years in the second tier followed by a while in the top league struggling against relegation, and then repeat.

As for the manager, well the somewhat larger variety of the clan of Sam is one of something like 60 managers they have had across the years.  Their first manager Louis Ford won the FA Cup with them in 1892 although it was Fred Everiss who managed them from 1902 to 1948 who is the most extraordinary man ever associated with the club – indeed with any club.

He managed 1520 games and got a win percentage of 43%, winning Division Two in 1911, and Division One in 1920, plus the FA Cup in 1931.  An amazing man.   How sad that a club with such a heritage should now employ a man who has achieved a win percentage of 10.5%.  Played 19, won 2, drawn 5, lost 12.

    If the Premier League 7th place finish this season does qualify a club to play European football next season, can Arsenal then get the 7th place finish this season by catching Everton and Tottenham Hs in the table and surpass them to the 7th place finish this season?

    But this possibility is not totally in the hand of Arsenal to achieve even if they win all their remaining 4 PL matches this season they may still not attain the position.. For, attaining this position is also in the hands of Tottenham and Everton who are currently above Arsenal in the table to either attain it or fail to not attain it.

    But nevertheless, in as much as the situation to attain a 7th place finish is looking to be uncertain. Arsenal should by all means possible for them give themselves a chance to attain a 7th place finish to the season by winning all their remaining 4 PL matches this season to see if they will beat Tottenham and Everton to the 7th place finish this season.

    And this journey by Arsenal to see if they could possibly attain a 7th place finish to the season this season begins for them by beating WBA today at the Ems.

    Therefore, the Gunners should not make the mistake about it to not beat the Baggies in the Premier League match encounter that will be played between both teams later today. But beat the Baggies to the collection of all the points at stake in the match for collection.
