Many West Brom fans have all said the same thing about Branislav Ivanovic after the club tweeted a happy birthday message to the defender.

Ivanovic turned 37 on Monday and the club tweeted a special message for the player who hasn’t featured for Albion for quite some time.

The summer signing has barely had a chance under Sam Allardyce after failing to impress when he was handed a start for the 4-0 thrashing by Arsenal.

The veteran defender joined in the summer after leaving Zenit St Petersberg and he was a signing that was pushed by Slaven Bilic.

Bilic wanted more experience in his backline and he certainly got that with the Premier League and Champions League winner.

Things haven’t really worked out for Ivanovic however and it looks as if his Hawthorns career could be over before it really got started after not featuring for weeks.

Many Albion fans took aim at the signing of Ivanovic and pointed out that the decision to sign him and others are what has put us in this relegation mess.

Others simply stated that they forgot he played for us, which is understandable considering his limited involvement this season.

Of course, there were also some light-hearted jokes about his age thrown in for good measure.

Here is how some West Brom fans reacted to Ivanovic’s milestone.

In other West Brom news, Albion have frozen out this player but it’s not for sporting reasons.

  1. He was a desperation signing because the Managers budget was so ridiculously small but having a go at the player is small minded and pathetic.

    He was offered a contract that the club were happy to give him. He took it. I would and you would. It’s not for the player to say no sorry I’m too old and knackered. That’s down to our medics and fitness coaches.

    Happy Birthday Branis. I’m sure you don’t listen to the morons.

    • Well said. And completely accurate. Does no-one have any good grace anymore? I really hope not all players read the stuff written about them.

  2. Now the way Gibbs has behaved almost demands the morons have a go at him.
    Swinging the lead and we’re stupid enough to carry on paying him
