2014/15 Premier League Season Review: West Bromwich Albion

Premier League Final Position: 13th 

Review

West Brom finished the Premier League season in mid-table after Tony Pulis turned around their fortunes when he took over the side in January. Pulis lost just one of his opening eight games with the club and he marshalled them into 13th, which is a respectable finish. It was a vast improvement on their 2013/14 season, they have finished four places higher, from 17th to 13th, and ended on 44 points.

Best Moment

3-0 win over Chelsea – they finished off their home fixtures in some style and became just the third side to beat the champions. This result was a great example of how Pulis rejuvenated Albion side and his players showed great self-belief.

Worst Moment

4-1 loss at home to Queens Park Rangers. This was a very poor result for West Brom but luckily it was never going to threaten their Premier League status.

Player of the Year

Saido Berahino – the Englishman had a great season, scoring 14 goals and he gave a really good account of himself. West Brom fans will be desperate to see their starlet stay for the long-haul.

Biggest Win 

West Brom 4-0 Burnley (Sep 28, 2014)

Biggest Defeat

West Bromwich Albion 0-3 Swansea (Aug 30, 2014)
Tottenham Hotspur 0-3 West Bromwich Albion (Jan 31, 2015)
Manchester City 0-3 West Bromwich Albion (Mar 21, 2015)
West Bromwich Albion 1-4 Queens Park Rangers (Apr 4, 2015)
Arsenal 4-1 West Bromwich Albion (May 24, 2015)

What to improve for the 2015 season…

West Brom must aim to be more consistent in the coming season. This is more than possible under Tony Pulis and the Baggies faithful will hope he can build upon a great end to the season. We can expect Pulis to further solidify his squad with defensive options. His business to bring in Darren Fletcher proved to be a hit and there will be plenty of players the Baggies boss will have in mind.
