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 Super Fans are ecstatic after a performance to remember gave Albion a 5-2 win over Chelsea on Saturday.

It has been a season of misery for followers of West Brom but finally the team showed what it was capable of at Stamford Bridge.

Fine finishing from Matheus Pereira and Callum Robinson and even better football from the whole team, particularly Okay Yokuslu, meant the result was never in doubt.

For once our Super Fans have been applauding the efforts of the side, which makes a nice change, and they have picked out a number of players who excelled.

Among them is Darnell Furlong, a player who often goes about his job quietly.

He came up against Christian Pulisic and Timo Werner at the weekend and limited their influence remarkably well.

Furlong did not grab the headlines but a few of our Super Fans paid him the recognition he deserves.

Here is what they had to say.

A win like that gives a glimmer of hope to fans, even if Albion are still eight points from safety.

For good reason, too, as if we maintain that performance for the rest of the season we will continue winning games and blowing teams away.

That is unlikely, unfortunately, as previous form suggests the finishing on show against Chelsea was an exception, not the norm.

Nevertheless, as some of the fans above allude to, Albion showed the fight and determination which indicates they still believe in survival.

Also, it is good to see Pereira back to his best and others contributing.

We have eight games left this season and they could be the Brazilian’s final games in an Albion shirt – let’s hope he goes out with a bang.

In other West Brom news, Big Sam shared an intriguing story about a Baggies star who quit on him earlier in his career.
