West Brom fans react on Twitter to Boaz Myhill's performance v City

The Baggies goalkeeper stopped supporters from needing an 'abacus' at Manchester City on Saturday afternoon.

West Brom fans were delighted with Boaz Myhill's performance at the Etihad Stadium during Saturday's early Premier League kick-off.

The 32-year-old stood out as the only real positive for Tony Pulis on a day when Manchester City had it all their own way.

Not only did the referee send off the wrong man early on but the league champions (although it doesn't look like they will be for much longer) absolutely dominated against the Baggies, registering a whopping 43 shots on goal.

Further misery was piled on when West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster was later ruled out for six months with injury.

But at least it looks like the Midlands club may have an able deputy on their hands in Myhill.

Craig Gardner said he was 'gutted' on Twitter after the Manchester City defeat but, as many supporters pointed out on social media, there could have been a lot more to be gutted about without West Brom's shot stopper.

Myhill made a number of saves at City and was judged by a large majority of Baggies fans to be their man of the match at the Etihad. Here's a selection of what West Brom fans were saying on Twitter after the game!
