Be interesting to see what sort of team Bilic puts out against Harrogate in the League Cup tonight as the League 2 newbies have started well and this is their Cup Final. West Brom play Everton Saturday lunchtime so wholesale team changes seem likely.
West Brom’s price has come in considerably for tonight’s game vs Harrogate, someone knows that either Bilic is playing a strong side or a small Harrogate squad will give the subs and reserves a run out.

People have to remember who seem certs to go down at the beginning in large parts is because of the manger, and the way he has them playing, managerial changes always happen every season when teams are struggling, then off a sudden not dead certs. So after just 1 game, it is way too early. Tbf to Leicester to people who say they too were not at the races, 3 of their usual back 4 were out/gone, Chilwell gone, Evans suspended, Pereira injured and Maddison on the bench coming back from injury.
It has nothing to do with " how a manager has a team playing" .Its called the honeymoon effect where players are motivated, pick results up and then revert back to their usual level usually. You're obsessed with managers, tactics despite the evidence showing player quality and motivation is mainly all that matters

Glad to see we have so many expert pundits who have summed a team up after one game. Very well done. I'm surprised some of you have been here for a few years as with your expertise I'd have thought you would have made enough to retire on in your first year.As for SS's they've signed a lot of rubbish it's good to know we have such an excellent reader of a player's ability.If you watched the Leicester game you will have noticed that the Baggies were at least the equal of Leicester in the first half. Ok they did go missing after the first goal but that applies to a lot of teams.As for falling over the line last season they did. But a lot of teams didn't perform after the covid break. As a few of you are so confident that the Baggies will go down I'm sure you're fully exposed now as it's surely too good an opportunity to miss.As for tonight Baggies may make 10 changes or may field first team. We don't know yet.
Classic meltdown from Charlie Chaplin.. you're going down- case closed

There are more than crowd elements involved in an away game wolf. Travelling, maybe having to stay over an extra night etc. All of these impact a player's psyche.
These days many of the players travel to home games as much as away ones, I don't see an 80 minute drive on a luxurious coach being a disadvantage for city tbh

Grosicki was quality at Hull but he doesn't seem to fit in at WBA
Has he fallen out with Bilic?
He has hardly played and has not been injured.
