That is what West Brom have done when the replaced Slaven Bilic with Sam Alladyce in the dugout. The top brass at the HAWTHORNS have been taken in by the romantic notion of Big Sam being this knight that saves teams from relegation. West Brom simply do not have the personnel to avoid relegation at the moment. The January transfer window could be their only saving grace that is if they bring in players with more premier league experience. But as long as they have the current squad they wont go anywhere.
Without taking anything away from Anwar El Ghazi’s goal assisted by Traore’s pin point cross, the Baggies’ right back was sleeping on the job.Livermore’s tackle on Grealish shows the level of desperation currently at West Brom. A player chasing a hopelessly lost ball with an open foot. What else did Livermore expect except red. After that West Brom was there for the taking.If it was not for Sam Johnstone it would have been a hell of a lot. Burkinabe striker Traore made it look easy passing the ballinto the net for 2-0 despite Villa looking like they will settle for 1-0. West Brom lost all discipline in conceding a third 4 minutes later. Grealish went on a run and was brought down in the box by Ajayi. El Ghazi went right in the middle of the goal with the spot kick to make it 3-0 and condemn the Baggies to their 9th defeat in 14. They lie second from bottom behind third from bottom Burnley having played 2 games more than the Clarets.
