West Bromwich Albion: Fans gush over Slaven Bilic’s ability to make correct substitutions

West Bromwich Albion may have come away from their encounter with Sheffield Wednesday with all three points in the bag on Saturday afternoon, however something else left them coming away from The Hawthorns gushing with delight after the final whistle on Twitter.

Goals from Hal Robson-Kanu and Charlie Austin were enough for the Baggies to overcome the Owls and retain a two-point advantage at the top of the Championship following the recent two-week hiatus because of the international break (BBC).

However, Slaven Bilic’s ability to make the right substitution at the right time appears to have been earning him some huge praise on the social network as of late.

The former West Ham United manager made three changes in quick succession inside the final 15 minutes of the encounter, which saw him introduce the experienced trio of Gareth Barry, Austin and Chris Brunt –  a move that appeared to go to plan, albeit via the penalty spot.

Fans were left waxing lyrical following the final whistle at the Croatian’s ability to spot the required changes and the moment they are needed, with some lauding his skill.

Here are just some of their reactions…
