West Brom fans wake up from 90-minute nap to say #pulisout

West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough played out a 0-0 draw at the Hawthorns to get Super Sunday off to a sombre start.

The Baggies came into the game off the back of last weekend's loss to Everton and Tuesday's penalty-shootout defeat against League One side Northampton in the EFL Cup.

The match will be viewed as yet another disappointing outing for the West Brom strike force. The failure to trouble the opposition defence means that they have now scored just two goals in their first three matches of the Premier League season.

Even though the Baggies had only 41% possession, they managed to get 13 shots away on goal - six more than Boro - but only two of these challenged opposing goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Some fans made manager Tony Pulis the focus of their ire on social media, with the hashtag #pulisout being used to show their dismay with the club's start to the season. 

Sitting in 10th place, it could certainly have been a worse start to the season for the Baggies, but it is the dull style of play that angers the club's supporters at this moment in time.

With three days left of the transfer window and the international break upon us Pulis has a fortnight to sort out his side before they visit Bournemouth on 10 September.

The clamour for Pulis's exit will grow unless the Baggies can find the net on a consistent basis.
