West Brom manager Alan Irvine admits fans’ criticism has affected him

After his side were booed off in their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal, West Brom manager Alan Irvine admitted the criticism from the supporters did hurt him, reports the Express.

“It hurts. I’d be telling lies if I didn’t say it stings. I can get just as frustrated just like the fans can when these things don’t come off. The players are working hard. In the difficult times we could probably could do with our fans being exactly that – our supporters. They want exactly the same as we all want, we all want to win games. We have a better chance of winning games if we’re all together,” said the Albion head coach.

West Brom have picked up just one win in the Premier League from their last seven games, and find themselves flirting with the relegation zone as a result. The Baggies have a must-win clash this week against West Ham, with victory imperative if they are to stay out of the bottom three.
