This West Bromwich Albion team could hardly be more different to the pragmatic side that made a habit of boring fans into submission towards the end of the Tony Pulis reign.
Darren Moore has instilled a far more attacking and creative style of play since getting the job on a permanent basis. The Baggies are the Championship’s top-scoring team with 31 goals so far and, as a result, are just a point off the top of the table.
At the other end, however, West Brom could do with a dash of Pulis-ism. With 17 goals conceded, their defence has been breached eight more times than Leeds and 11 more times than Middlesbrough.
With that in mind, some supporters are thrilled by the prospect of Jack Fitzwater returning in January.
The 21-year-old academy graduate returned to Walsall in the summer after an impressive loan spell at the Bescot in 2017/18 and has continued to earn rave reviews for The Saddlers in League One.
As a result, West Brom loan manager Deon Burton has told the Express and Star that Fitzwater is ‘close’ to the first-team, and added that the Baggies would review his role in the New Year with a return to The Hawthorns a possibility.
So should Ahmed Hegazi, Craig Dawson and Kyle Bartley be watching their back?
100% would recall Jack in January. Will have had a season and a half of men’s football under his belt and whilst playing a back 3 only having 4 first team CB’s fit is a risky business.— joe (@joekapalo) October 13, 2018
Please so. Can he fill 3 centre half positions on his own?— Chris Lepkowski (@chrislepkowski) October 13, 2018
Gotta be better than that pair we got playing at the back at the min— jay (@Jaywba1982) October 13, 2018
If Big Dave will give him regular games bring him back if not then keep him at Walsall— Jonathan Evans (@The5pecialone31) October 13, 2018
He literally cannot be any worse than Hegazi— Brom Jon (@Jon_Foz) October 13, 2018
