We asked three longtime fans what they thought of the 1-0 win against Leeds which kept that momentum going.
Then we turned our attention to any (realistic) final wishes from the summer transfer window.
What were your thoughts on Albion’s performance against Leeds?
Tim Ayling: We were unplayable in the first half and Leeds couldn’t get close to us. Unfortunately, it felt like Albion two seasons ago where the ball wouldn’t go in. But this is the new Albion and the inevitable sucker punch doesn’t happen, the glorious winner does. There’s something very satisfying about a 1-0 win!
Alan Brownings: Another solid Albion show that dominated throughout. The elephant is still in the room, isn’t it? We really struggle to score goals, especially at home. There were some incredible misses again, but there was always a feeling that if we could sneak one, this one would do. We did, all well and good.
James Heasman: Very solid first half against a physical Leeds team bordering on dirty. We played really well and created a number of clear chances and should have been two or three ahead. In the second half I felt like we were a bit sloppy at times but luckily we scored.
Who was your pick among the Albion players?
Tim Ayling: Two players caught my eye. Pascal arguably plays the best football of his Albion career and showed it again in this game. And Mac Allister is at his best, winning the ball and throwing passes. Gross has to take MotM, but MacAllister wasn’t far behind.
Alan Brownings: Difficult to choose one for me. It was a solid performance all round. I think just for sheer class it has to be Estupinan which seems to be a more than adequate substitute for Cucurella.
James Heasman: Pascal Gross was excellent and the pass to save March was great. However, once again I found Alexis Mac Allister simply world class.
What activity do you (realistically) hope to see before the transfer window closes?
Tim Ayling: A reinforcement for Danny Welbeck would be good as I’m afraid that if he gets injured it could be a big problem for our style of play. And of course an unknown South American teenager.
Alan Brownings: Strikers, forwards, forwards and a bit more depth in the roster in key areas would be perfect. I much prefer Lamptey to March for example, Solly is great to watch when he’s up against players but the last cross or finish is so often missing I’m always afraid Sanchez will make a mistake at some point. to. This might be a bit harsh, I know, but you asked!
James Heasman: I feel relatively comfortable with the players we already have. Of course, if a player becomes available who would improve the squad, I would hope that we would go for him. A player similar to Welbeck would probably be ideal, but equally Ferguson is a real talent who can provide cover.
