West Brom have not enjoyed the best start to life in the Premier League, and their 5-2 defeat against Everton highlighted many problems.
The Baggies were in the middle of controversy at Goodison Park, with five goals conceded and two red cards handed out by Mike Dean.
Kieran Gibbs was given his marching orders for an incident with James Rodriguez, and Slaven Bilic followed minutes later after taking to the pitch to question Dean’s decision.
The Croatian boss was charged by the FA on Tuesday for his altercation, as he accepted the improper conduct accusation.
Local journalist Joseph Masi reported before the Brentford defender that Bilic won’t receive a touchline ban for the “minor incident”, but he would be fined.
The FA Spokesperson reported on their personal Twitter account on Wednesday that the Baggies boss has been charged only £8,000 after the breach of FA Rule E3.

It was simply a ludicrous decision from Dean to hand Bilic the red card, and the official has been ridiculed since by pundits and fans alike.
The Baggies boss was calm when he entered the field, and simply asked the referee why he didn’t analyse the VAR footage before making his decision.
Aston Villa hero Gabby Agbonglahor even labelled Dean an “arrogant fool”, and that is something we can all agree on.
Thankfully, the FA have seen sense and have only fined Bilic, and we will be seeing him in the dugout in the crunch clash with Chelsea this weekned.
