West Brom fans rave about Pritchard on Twitter after debut v Newcastle

West Brom The Hawthorns

The Baggies faithful were delighted with the Tottenham Hotspur loanee - on an otherwise gloomy day for their side.

West Brom fans were delighted with Alex Pritchard on Saturday afternoon - but not much else as they lost 1-0 to Newcastle United at St James' Park.

Indeed, the Tottenham loanee came on for his West Brom debut and shocked the away fans by playing a bit of football!

They complain that they aren't used to actual football, of course, as boss Tony Pulis is far too negative to play any.

Under the Welshman, Pritchard may very well be discouraged from going at players like he naturally would. But Tottenham sent him to the Baggies in the hope of Premier League game time and he already has some under his belt.

West Brom were poor against Newcastle, with the Magpies sealing a one-goal win against them during the relegation battle. But supporters were quick to single Spurs youngster Pritchard out as the only positive at St James' Park.

Here's how West Brom fans reacted on Twitter to the Tottenham loanee's performance v Newcastle:
