No team have scored more league goals than West Brom in top four divisions
West Brom may have scored 20 goals under Valerien Ismael in the Championship this season, but their fans have still been left unhappy.

They further jeered the West Brom boss when be brought Grady Diangana off in the second half, but it ended up working wonders for the team.
Looking at the statistic above and the Championship table, which sees the Baggies in pole position, one must wonder where the toxicity for the Frenchman is coming from.
After playing in defensive systems under Slaven Bilic and Sam Allardyce, he’s tried to get this side to focus more on pressing, winning the ball higher up the field and prioritising an attacking brand of football.
This has resulted in not only the most goals, but also the most points on the table, so the fact that the fans are still booing makes us wonder where they’re coming from.
It is not easy to dramatically change the style of play with a magic wand.
The fans that have been critical of Ismael appear to believe that things can be improved overnight.
There is still baggage in the squad left by past managers and he’s trying his best to make things right.
Ismael has got this side gunning for promotion and we believe that he is the right person for the Hawthorns hot seat.
