Darren Moore has given the official West Bromwich Albion Tweet team a little quote filler on an otherwise quiet Wednesday.

Simple enough comment, it shows his background and one of the reasons why he was quickly taken to heart by The Hawthorns faithful with his attitude on and off the pitch during his playing career with us.

As well as garnering the expected praise from the fanbase once again, following his promotion to caretaker manager following the departure of Alan Pardew, his comment also caused quite a stir in term of leaving fans hungry.

Whilst the Twitter responses may have taken a left-field turn, there is certainly reason to hope for ‘Moore’ between now and the end of the Premier League campaign. With a marked difference in the attitude and approach of the players in the 1-1 draw with Swansea City as he made his debut in the home dugout, unexpected victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford really got pulses racing.

With Liverpool up next on Saturday fans are approaching that match with renewed faith and hope but after the season we’ve had, even if we taste another defeat given the tall order back to back victories would be given the opposition, I would imagine most would better content themselves in trusting we went down battling rather than as a damp squib.

It might not be much consolation but it would be a consolation that’s often been missing in 2017/18 and even the most optimistic fan would admit that with so few games remaining avoiding the drop is at the least unlikely.

Restoring some pride and hope is probably the best we can hope for.
