Plenty of West Brom fans enjoyed the club’s sharing of a video call between six members of the squad which gained promotion to the Premier League in 2008 as winners of the Championship.
Chris Brunt hosted a Zoom call involving him, Kevin Phillips, Zoltan Gera, Paul Robinson, James Morrison and captain of that season Jonathan Greening (as per wba.co.uk) as they shared their memories of the campaign from 12 years ago, with a snippet of the call featured on Twitter by @WBA.
The video montage featured Morrison getting taunted for apparently claiming that he thought the Baggies wouldn’t lose a home game. It also included the goal from Brunt against Southampton which effectively sealed promotion back to the top flight, with their status as champions confirmed following a 2-0 win at QPR on the final day. A year after losing the play-off final against Derby, Tony Mowbray’s team achieved promotion with 23 wins and 88 goals from their 46 league games.
These West Brom fans on Twitter enjoyed the catch-up between the aforementioned six members of the Championship-winning squad:

Best 30 minutes I’ve watched. Jono has aged about 600 years and the rest of them don’t look a day over 30 😂
