01/02: Preview: West Bromwich Albion
by Matt Rowson
How did they do?
Surprised many by making the play-offs, and had Bolton on the back foot in the first leg of their play-off semi before letting a lead slip.
How will they do?
Probably exceeded expectations last season, but with Derek McInnes returning from injury shouldn't be discounted from the promotion race this time. However, a lot will depend on how well the Baggies replace the apparently outgoing Lee Hughes, who provided an unhealthily large proportion of West Brom's unspectacular goal haul last season.
Do we like them?
They're not Wolves, which is good, but a succession of utter humiliations at the Hawthorns are taking their toll.
If they were a tv or radio show, what would they be?
"Live and Kicking". Exhausting, tiresome and abrasive.
