West Bromwich Albion boinged themselves into third place in the Championship table on Saturday as we took a 2-0 victory over Millwall at The Hawthorns.

Goals from Dwight Gayle and Kieran Gibbs gave us our fifth win of the campaign so far and sitting on 17 points for the season, we are only a point behind Leeds United and Middlesbrough who are tied in first place.

It was another solid performance from the lads with plenty of improvement on show, not least defensively as we kept the clean sheet, but Chris Brunt’s card is marked by a section in the fan base and they simply aren’t going to let it go, even if they should be celebrating the result rather than looking for things to moan about.

Social media can be a weird and wonderful place, it can also be like the rowdiest dive you’ve ever walked into with few redeeming features at points.

Statistics in football never tell the full story but they can offer an alternative perspective, and WhoScored rated Brunt as our sixth best player on the day given his own individual contribution, but when you’ve made your mind up, you’ve made your mind up haven’t you.

Moore is “absolutely clueless” as we sit in third place…whatever floats your boat, I’m off to wobble my head. Some should try it.
