West Brom fell to a narrow defeat against West Ham on Tuesday night but the game was overshadowed by the omission of Robert Snodgrass.

His absence in the starting line-up took many Albion fans by surprise and it was revealed that the Premier League are investigating the circumstances behind Snodgrass’ exclusion.

The Scot made a move to The Hawthorns from West Ham earlier this month, and it seems the two clubs agreed that he would not be involved in their fixture.

Some supporters have speculated that Premier League rules have been broken, with suggestions that the club may be punished.

However, since only West Ham were the beneficiaries from this, some Albion fans believe only the East London club deserve to be reprimanded.

Nevertheless, there are some amongst the fanbase who are less than impressed with the actions of West Brom.

At the very least they feel the club could have made Snodgrass’s absence less obvious, by suggesting he was injured, for example.

It will be intriguing to see the outcome of the Premier League’s investigation, and if it has an impact on both parties in terms of a fine or even a points deduction.

Here is some of the reaction from Baggies supporters to the controversy.
