West Brom Super Fans react after fans boo Diangana's substitution v QPR

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


West Brom fans were not pleased when Valerien Ismael hauled off Grady Diangana 10 minutes into the second-half against Queens Park Rangers.

According to The Athletic journalist Steve Madeley, the decision to withdraw the 23-year-old attacker and put Jordan Hugill on drew some boos from fans at The Hawthorns.

The double substitution worked magic, though, as Callum Robinson – who replaced Matt Phillips – provided both assists for Karlan Grant as the Baggies came from behind to grab a much-needed 2-1 victory.

We asked our esteemed panel of West Brom Super Fans their thoughts on the decision of those at the stadium to boo Ismael’s decision.

Here’s what they had to say.

Ismael made the right call in the end, and Diangana would not have any complaints after he was withdrawn.

He failed to make an impact, and the Frenchman was not ready to wait for long before switching things up.

West Brom fans have every right to make their feelings known, but seeing them boo every decision and every draw is becoming tiring.

They should be supporting the team even in defeat, and that is the only way to get behind the players.

Baggies captain Jake Livermore had to plead with them in the pre-match programme notes to show more support to the team [Steve Madeley], but nothing changed.

The fans booed the team at half-time when they were a goal down, and the players need them to be more patient.

It is a long season ahead, and Ismael’s men are not going to win every game.

The Frenchman and his players are going to make mistakes and get some things wrong, and if the fans are reacting to draws and early subs with boos, how would they react to defeats?

In other West Brom news, Steve Madeley was baffled by strange thing Baggies ace said ahead of QPR clash.
