"I think they understand it becomes more difficult but they have got to keep applying themselves. I only asked them to play in the way we set the team up to play and keep going. I enjoy watching my team play." Said Tony Mowbray following the Baggies 1:1 draw against Bolton on Sunday.
Like Mowbray, Albion fans may enjoy watching their team play, but they certainly aren't relishing the Baggies current eight-game winless streak. Which begs the question: would you rather be entertained with an attractive brand of football or win matches at the price of witnessing a more defensive and less entertaining style of play? In Albion's case, it may be regarded as the difference between survival and relegation.
