Some West Brom fans are absolutely enraged by the news that their club will not be able to spend more than £2m on a player during the January transfer window.
The Baggies are currently 19th in the Premier League table, having won just one of their first 17 games in the competition. Sam Allardyce has come in to replace Slaven Bilic and, in the face of what appears to be a monumental task, he may have been hoping to have a decent transfer budget to put his stamp on the squad.
