West Bromwich Albion: Fans laud Slaven Bilic after Birmingham win

Appointing Slaven Bilic as their new manager at the beginning of the season clearly looks to have paid dividends at this stage of the campaign, so much so that West Bromwich Albion fans have been hailing the Croatian boss once again on Twitter.

The Baggies managed to see off local arch-rivals Birmingham City in a Midlands derby that took place at St. Andrews in Saturday’s early kick-off, despite finding themselves going behind twice in the game (BBC).

Lukas Jutkiewicz got the hosts off to a perfect start inside the opening three minutes when he headed home, however Bilic’s side were left thanking West Ham United loanee Grady Diangana just moments later when he levelled the tie.

Birmingham took the lead once again in similar fashion as they scored just after the restart in the second half when Harlee Dean netted, a late double-salvo from substitute Charlie Austin meant they would return to the top of the Championship and remain there after a collapse by promotion rivals Leeds United later on in the afternoon.

Fans were understandably delighted with what their side had managed to achieve on the pitch, however many of them also took the opportunity to sing the praises of their current manager.

One supporter had even admitted that having Bilic at the club was the best bit of news they had had in decades.

Here are just some of their reactions…
