Irvine feeling ire of West Brom fans

Head coach Alan Irvine called for unity at West Brom after fans turned on him at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies slipped to their fourth straight defeat after they went down 2-1 at home to West Ham last night.

Fans chanted 'Taxi for Irvine' as their frustrations grew with the Baggies having won just three times at home in the League in 2014. Irvine replaced Pepe Mel in the summer but is already having to defend his position.

He said. "It wasn't that long ago Sam (Allardyce) was going through all sorts. Name a manager and they have been through it at some point, it comes with the territory."

Craig Dawson gave the Baggies the perfect start but Kevin Nolan and James Tomkins struck before the break to win it for the Hammers.
