Simon Gleave, Infostrada’s man about town, had these interesting factoids up moments ago in relation to West Brom’s current drubbing at the hand of Swansea:

Moreover, their Total Shots Ratio this season so far is .437. Their average last year was .469. So, in fact, there is evidence West Brom are performing a little better than their dominance on the pitch would suggest.

Surely a better explanation for their current drubbing than the BBC’s Mark Lawro Lawrenson’s assertion West Brom “believe their own hype”? And certainly reason to think a correction of sorts may be in the offing for the Baggies as the season progresses.
