Thomas: Baggies staying positive

West Bromwich Albion’s Jerome Thomas believes that the club's poor start to the season has galvanised the team for a successful season.

The winger cited the Baggies’ recovery from Chelsea’s opening 6-0 punishment last year, when Roy Hodgson’s men rallied back to finish in mid-table after taking over in January.

At the start of this year’s Barclays Premier League campaign, West Brom have had to face Chelsea and Manchester United, and Thomas reckons its time for the tables to turn.

"The players are staying positive, especially with the way we started last season," he said.

"We had the drubbing at Chelsea and got over it and this is no different. We don't have any points on the table but we know what we're capable of.

"It's been frustrating for the gaffer and he hasn't been happy but that's because we all know what we're capable of doing. We know we can go into these games, home or away, and get something from them.

"We have been unlucky but it's time for the tables to turn, starting on Sunday."

The 28-year-old’s optimism is in part down to the fact that West Brom has so far managed to hold on to key players in the summer transfer window.


"We have done well to keep all the players who have performed for us in the last two seasons, and last season especially," he continued.

"Peter Odemwingie, Youssouf Mulumbu and Chris Brunt have all signed new deals and these are all key players for West Brom.

"After the performance we had last year the players need to be rewarded for it and it's nice to see."

West Brom will be aiming for their first win of the Barclays Premier League this Sunday as they welcome Stoke City to the Hawthorns.
