West Brom fans react on Twitter to Rickie Lambert's performance v Swansea

Rickie Lambert

The Baggies faithful were left disappointed by their 33-year-old striker on social media.

After Swansea City's first Premier League win in quite some time, West Brom find themselves just three points above the relegation zone.

The Baggies are still 13th - but they haven't won in their last five and have lost two on the bounce. Just a couple more bad results and Tony Pulis's men could well find themselves being discussed as major candidates for the drop...

So where is it all going wrong for West Brom right now? There was an element of luck at Swansea, of course. Even the Swans' winner was fortuitous, while the visitors had their fair share of complaints about refereeing decisions.

That said, there are definite problems in the final third for the Baggies. And it seems like there always will be under Pulis.

At the Liberty Stadium, the West Brom boss played Rickie Lambert on his own up top. It didn't work and, as well as the coach getting criticised for his selection, the 33-year-old striker himself was lambasted by quite a few of his supporters.

Indeed, age and fitness appear to be catching up with Lambert. Is he good enough to lead the line for West Brom? And do the Midlands outfit have any real hope of winning games if Pulis persists with the former Southampton and Liverpool man?

Answers on a postcard - here's what West Brom fans thought of Lambert's performance against Swansea on Twitter:
