West Brom fans were once again left a little bored on Saturday afternoon. Yes, they didn't lose - but the Baggies faithful are all too used to a 0-0 draw under Tony Pulis.
The Midlands outfit didn't show much attacking intent against Aston Villa, despite Remi Garde's men sitting bottom of the Premier League table, and it was a familiar story at the Hawthorns.
Not only was it a case of West Brom lacking ambition against Villa, however, it was a case of them lacking quality.
Indeed, supporters were left frustrated with a number of the Baggies' performances v Aston Villa on Saturday - not least former Villan Craig Gardner.
The 29-year-old disappointed fans in midfield and they were relieved to see him replaced by Pulis in the second half. He didn't seem to have any extra motivation to succeed against Aston Villa and, in fact, looked far worse than usual.
Here's how West Brom fans reacted on Twitter to Gardner's performance against his former team...
