Bristol City Boss Identified 3 Important Things To Build And To Be Considered After The Draw With West Brom On Saturday

West Brom’s start to the season has been underwhelming, with improvements needed in all departments to push for the playoffs.
Manager Carlos Corberan still hasn’t found his best starting XI, with formation tweaks and key players not performing at their highest level.
The injury concern surrounding striker Josh Maja is a worry, especially considering the upcoming busy period of fixtures for West Brom.
West Brom drew 0-0 at Bristol City on Saturday to continue what has been an underwhelming start to the season for Carlos Corberan’s side.

The Spaniard did a superb job after inheriting a Baggies side struggling at the bottom when he took over in the previous campaign. Therefore, despite off-field issues restricting what Corberan could do in the transfer market, there are still hopes about what this season can bring.

Yet, Albion haven’t really got going just yet, although they picked up another point at Ashton Gate, after playing out a goalless draw.

The visitors were particularly poor in the first half, where they failed to lay a glove on the Robins, and whilst they improved after the break, they didn’t do enough to get the win.

And, here we look at THREE things we learnt about West Brom from the game…


Josh Maja injury concern

It seems harsh to be overly negative about the Baggies, as they haven’t had a terrible start, with eight points from six games a decent return.

Nevertheless, it still feels as though they have much more to offer. The first 45 minutes against Bristol City was nowhere near good enough, and it shouldn’t take Corberan shouting at them at half-time to get a response.


Of course, the manager isn’t blameless, and in all departments it seems Albion need to improve that little bit if they are to seriously push for the play-offs this season.

Corberan still doesn’t know his best XI

Following on from that, it still feels as if Corberan doesn’t know his best side.

There have been formation tweaks already this season, and key players like Jed Wallace and Okay Yokuslu haven’t hit their highest level just yet.


Grady Diangana and Jeremy Sarmiento are two players who could flourish at this level, and you would imagine they will force their way into the team over the coming months.


There’s no need for Albion to panic just yet, but Corberan needs to settle on an approach that gets the best out of the attacking talent he has at his disposal. The run of games coming up means all players will get a chance over the next few weeks, and it’s down to the individuals to make sure they cement a place in the team.
