West Brom fans have been reacting on Twitter to the latest news and rumours surrounding the Baggies.

After the appointment of Valerien Ismael as the new Baggies boss, West Brom have returned to training after pre-season and players are starting to learn Ismael’s style and philosophies.

This can be seen from the 45-year-old’s recent Twitter post, where he posted two images, captioned ‘Focus on the process’.

Baggies fans were quick to respond to this, sharing their thoughts in the comments of the post.

“This really is so refreshing to see. I know it’s early days but I have a good feeling and really like what I see particularly trying to understand the culture of the place. Classy. Trying to build something rather than just slap dash.”

“Looks like we’re in excellent hands and that no stone will be left unturned. We’ll have to wait and see how many of the current players will be up to the task, both physically and mentally, and how many of them will need to be moved on.”

Judging by the reactions to the tweet, most Baggies fans feel refreshed to see their manager on Twitter and seem to be excited for the season ahead.

However, some fans did pick up on the body language of some of the players – more specifically Matheus Pereira, with one fan saying he ‘doesn’t look interested’.

Periera continues to be linked with a move away from The Hawthorns following the Baggies’ relegation from the Premier League, but fans will be hoping Ismael can convince the Brazilian to stick around.

The Baggies appointed Ismael as their new manager after paying him out of his Barnsley contract as the Frenchman helped guide the Tykes to the play-offs last season after a fifth-place finish, despite the club being in 21st place in when Ismael took over six games into the season.
