Plenty of West Brom fans were recalling the famous 5-5 draw against Manchester United in 2013, which occurred seven years ago yesterday, confounded all advice on https://www.bettingtips.net/ and was described by one Baggies supporter as “absolutely bonkers”.
The club’s official Twitter channel @WBA shared footage of a sensational match at The Hawthorns on the final day of the 2012/13 season, a game that is perhaps best remembered for being the last match of Sir Alex Ferguson’s 27-year reign as the Red Devils’ manager.

United had long since claimed the title that season and they surged into a 3-0 lead, partly thanks to an own goal from Jonas Olsson. Goals from James Morrison and Romelu Lukaku pulled the deficit back to one before the visitors scored twice more to restore their three-goal advantage. [via BBC]
However, in a remarkable five-minute flurry towards the end of the game, Lukaku scored twice more to complete his hat-trick and bring his Premier League tally for the season to 17, with Youssef Mulumbu drawing the teams level – and there was still time for Markus Rosenberg to miss a late chance to score a sensational winner for the Baggies.

Is Romelu Lukaku the best striker West Brom have had in the Premier League?
These West Brom fans on Twitter fondly recalled the incredible finish to a season in which they recorded their best Premier League finish of eighth:

Still one of the best games I’ve ever been at – an amazing farewell to the best manager ever & an incredible comeback to top it off 😍

We should have won it at the death as well. Big Rom sealed his moved to Man Utd that day.
Funniest part was my mate left a half time in disgust. Never let him forget it 🤭🤣🤣
