Fan pressure grows on Alan Irvine on Twitter after West Brom defeat

The Baggies surrendered a 2-0 lead at Queens Park Rangers yesterday to lose 3-2.

This is the winter of West Brom fans' discontent.

Rarely has there been such distaste towards a West Brom manager, with Alan Irvine's popularity seemingly plummeting further and further every week.

This weekend, his Baggies team gave up a 2-0 lead at QPR, as a Charlie Austin hat-trick gave the west London side a 3-2 victory.

Supporters aren't happy.

"We deserved to win the game and the fact that we didn't was down to us not defending well at three corners and not being clinical," the West Brom boss told reporters after his side's loss to QPR.

"Austin is a top player. As I said this week when I was Sheffield Wednesday manager I wanted to sign him. He looks a very good player. It's bitterly disappointing to leave with nothing as I would have been disappointed with just a point."

For many West Brom fans, though, Irvine's comments, just like his performance in the job so far this campaign, simply weren't up to scratch.

The Baggies are still 14th - not quite in the relegation zone just yet - but QPR's triumph puts them level on points with the Black Country side, while West Brom's form suggests the drop zone could be welcoming them very soon. For some supporters, enough is enough.
