West Brom left wondering what could have been at Liverpool

West Brom manager Alan Irvine explained his side were unfortunate to lose to Liverpool, despite their response in the second half.

There was a sense of what might have been after West Brom's 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

It was another decent display from Alan Irvine's side, but even Albion's head coach stated that if his players had believed a bit more and gone for it, West Brom could have picked up a point or maybe even more against Liverpool side whose defence continued to struggle.

Confident West Brom aim to extend Liverpool's misery

Saido Berahino and the West Brom attack can make Anfield an even more nervous place should they score first against Liverpool.
Saido Berahino and the West Brom attack can make Anfield an even more nervous place should they score first against Liverpool.

West Brom go to Anfield on Saturday with a renewed sense of optimism after a run of three wins in a row.

This optimism is increased by the fact that Liverpool find themselves in the midst of an average start to the season, with the absence of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge being keenly felt by Brendan Rodgers' side.

One of the issues seemingly troubling Liverpool is how to accommodate their raft of new signings, similar to West Brom and Alan Irvine -- although Liverpool did their recruiting...

West Brom at their very best in romp over Burnley

West Brom manager Alan Irvine explains he is not getting carried away despite a string of positive results.

West Brom's 4-0 victory over Burnley was one of their most dominant performances in the Premier League, with two young English players leading the way. Manager Alan Irvine came to Albion with a big reputation of helping to develop young players, and in the case of Craig Dawson and Saido Berahino, he is already showing why he has that reputation.

West Brom look to Sebastian Blanco to break down stalwart Burnley

Sebastian Blanco showed he has the potential to be a major asset for West Brom this season.

West Brom will be looking to continue the momentum they have picked up over the past week when they face Burnley on Sunday.

After picking up his first win as Albion head coach against Spurs, Alan Irvine secured a second consecutive win in midweek after defeating Hull 3-2 in cup action. The clash with Burnley presents Albion with a big opportunity to pick up a third win in a row.

Irvine gets it all right in West Brom win at Tottenham

West Brom fans got what they asked for ahead of the clash with Spurs: an improved performance. But they also got a victory that no one expected. Manager Alan Irvine confounded the critics in picking up his first win as Albion head coach, in arguably his toughest fixture so far.

The Baggies' 1-0 win against Spurs -- their first victory at White Hart Lane in 30 years -- was no smash-and-grab job, either. The possession statistics will show that Spurs had a lot of the ball, but it was West Brom...

Transfer talks between managers and journalists benefit both sides

Journalists aren't always the ones trying to track down football managers for information. Quite often, it's the managers calling the journalists.

The transfer window is closed until January, but transfer-related activity hasn't stopped. There's always a grapevine of information, as clubs never stop looking at players. They build up as much intelligence on potential players as possible. There's far more to it than merely scouting a talent and making an offer for him, which is what the official protocol would suggest. A buying club would be far happier knowing the player wants to join them before they put a bid in.

I've lost count of the number...
