This is part of a regular series from our panel of West Brom Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around The Hawthorns.


West Brom take on Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Wednesday night and will want to bounce back to winning ways after a pitiful display versus Brentford last week.

Albion are winless and have failed to score in their last four Championship fixtures so Slaven Bilic is bound to spring a few changes to his starting line-up for the trip to Yorkshire this week.

We have asked our panel of Super Fans to say what changes they would like to see Bilic make in order to end such a poor run of results.

Here is what they had to say:

Dylan Ashmore (@WBADyl)

Jon W (@JonW1995)

Luke Stokes (@lukestokes84)

Dan Nash (@DanNash86)

Hayden Belgrave (@belgrave_hayden)

As you can see, all of the Super Fans want to see Matt Phillips dropped from the starting line-up to face Sheffield Wednesday.

Who can blame them?

Phillips, 29, has been very poor in his first two appearances since the season restarted with him offering next to no threat in the attack.

According to stats by WyScout, the Scotland international had a pass accuracy of 50 and 62 per cent against Birmingham and Brentford respectively while he completed zero crosses in the two matches.

He also attempted just one dribble versus Brentford and completed just two of the five he attempted against Blues.

We would much rather see Bilic go back to 4-3-3 and drop Phillips so Filip Krovinovic can come in.

In other West Brom news, Darren Moore has suggested who was at fault for Brentford’s goal last week.
