A number of West Brom fans have been reacting to the confirmation of the Baggies’ fixture list for their first season back in the Championship.
The Baggies have been handed a tough start to the campaign with them set to face a trip to Bournemouth on the opening day of the season, which will be followed by home games against Luton Town and Sheffield United.
West Brom will be hoping to get a manager in place well before their opening fixtures. The latest reports have suggested that Barnsley boss Valerien Ismael is close to being handed the chance to take over from Sam Allardyce and lead their promotion bid.
Were Ismael to be appointed then two standout fixtures for West Brom next term would instantly become the two meetings with Barnsley.
The Baggies travel to Oakwell in December as part of their Christmas and New Year schedule. They then face them intriguingly at home on the final day of the campaign.
Some West Brom fans were quick to point out that West Brom could have the chance to potentially earn promotion against Ismael’s old side on the last day if all goes to plan.
Quiz: Did each of these 20 midfielders ever score a goal for West Brom?
While others were excited at the fixture release and feeling that West Brom could have a strong campaign.
Here, we take a look at some of the best reactions on social media…
