West Brom have been fleeting between the good and bad this year. Darren Moore was of course sacked, they failed to achieve promotion, but now they have the experienced Slaven Bilic at the helm.
He appears to be relishing the opportunity to get stuck in and he’s already been busy in the transfer market.
Express & Star confirmed this week that Albion had agreed a loan deal with Benfica for Filip Krovinovic, a 23-year-old attacking midfield player.
Reacting to the news on Twitter, West Brom fans shared both optimistic and cautious views on the potential arrival.
One fan claimed that he was exactly what Albion needed and a further supporter said he was an exciting prospect.
Another fan expressed his excitement at a deal for Krovinovic but was quick to note he knew little about the player. One individual hoped the deal was now wrapped up quickly.

The Croatian found it a struggle to get into Benfica’s team last term, making just 12 appearances in all competitions.
He did have a slightly more promising 2017/18 campaign, though, scoring twice across 19 matches.
Here’s the best of the reaction from Baggies fans.
Bilic was keen on him..we seem to have got him ..can’t be a bad thing..maybe things are on the up. .at last

The guy is exactly what we need though in my opinion so I understand the hype. He’s creative and skilful who can play Attacking mid or on the wing
