West Bromwich Albion fans have been reacting to footage that has emerged from their game against Peterborough United at the weekend.

The Baggies continued their unbeaten start to the league whilst also bouncing back from their thrashing in midweek at the hands of Arsenal by picking up a win against the newly-promoted Posh on Saturday night.

Merseyside derby, Liverpool and Everton

Who scored the opening goal in Liverpool's 4-3 win over Leeds United at Anfield in September?

They had to wait a while for the winner to come, though, with Semi Ajayi scoring the goal deep into stoppage time to give Valérien Ismaël’s side all three points in dramatic style. The goal led to a rather exuberant celebration from the manager in the aftermath as he sprinted down the touchline to celebrate with the players in front of the travelling Baggies fans.

Footage of this was put out on social media by @ALBIONFANTV for supporters to react to, where it led to some rather exciting remarks:

“I love this guy more and more each week.”

“This video is amazing”
“I can’t stop watching this absolutely amazing seeing an Albion manager living us fans in him”
“Love this man”
“This is unbelievable @valerien_ismael the passion”
“Love this passion from our manager”
“Gutted to miss these limbs”

Will West Brom go up as champions?





It’s a celebration that perhaps won’t go down in football legend the way that Jose Mourinho’s at Old Trafford did, but if the Baggies earn promotion this season, then it might just become a memorable moment in West Brom’s history.
