GSC 2015/16 previews: West Bromwich Albion

Last up is West Brom. Yes, they should have been before West Ham. Yes I do know my alphabet.

Cheers to Adam and thanks again to all 20 previewers. I hope you’ve enjoyed these, hopefully they prove pretty useful, particularly for new players.

Best GSC performance: No comment

First-choice line-up: No doubt we’ll sign a new starting XI an hour before the window closes but as it currently stands:
Foster; Dawson, McCauley, Lescott, Brunt; McManaman, Fletcher, Yacob, Morrison, Sessegnon; Berahino

Predicted finishing position: 13th.

Predicted top scorer: Berahino if he sticks around.

Main penalty taker: Berahino.

Main direct free-kick taker: Brunt.

The best fixture to pick a West Brom player: There’ll always be plenty of goals against the Villa and perhaps a good time to pick an outsider like Dawson/McCauley from a set piece.

A West Brom youngster you might want to pick: West Brom are the footballing equivalent of Dad’s Army so you’ll struggle to find a youngster that’s able to get a goal beyond Berahino. Perhaps take a flyer on Nabi if he’s able to break into the first team.

A West Brom player to pick for international weeks: James Morrison can pop up with a goal for Scotland from time to time and is probably the safest bet.

General GSC tip for new players: Pick a West Brom player at your own risk.

Anything else: Bogey teams. They’re not a myth, everyone has at least one. We traditionally struggle every season against Swansea & Stoke. I’ll always be looking to back Norwich against Arsenal too.
