With new owners on the way, how will West Brom cope this season?
West Brom have managed two top ten finishes in the past six years but, with new owners on the way and a lack of transfer activity, it could be the year that West Brom have a real battle on their hands.
With the addition of long-term target Matt Phillips from QPR, the transfer saga continues with Saido Berahino. The striker is still un-settled and has been doing his best to engineer a move away from The Hawthorns over the last twelve months. With Tony Pulis reluctant to let Berahino move until a replacement is found, you can currently get best odds at 7/1 that the striker will stay at West Brom and enter the final year of his contract.
Last season’s top scorer, Salomon Rondon will be the man to lead the attack. With ten league goals in his debut season for The Baggies, fans will be optimistic that he will only get better. You can currently get odds at 4/5 that Rondon will finish the season as the club's top league goalscorer.
The Baggies are tipped to have a tough season but, Tony Pulis is a manager who is yet to taste relegation from the Premier League. You would think that with Pulis terrific track record in the top flight, it would be almost a certainty that they will stay up - you can currently get odds at 2/5 that they remain in the Premier League for another season. However, if you believe that it could finally be the year that West Brom drop out of the top tier of English football, you can currently get odds at 5/2 that they are relegated.
