With the Baggies almost certainly bound for the Coca-Cola Championship next season, many fans have already begun questioning their future in the second division including their capability of bouncing back to the top flight. Knowledgeable supporters of recurrently promoted and relegated teams will often say that it is in fact more difficult to secure birth in the Premier League than it is to survive for a single season in one of Europe’s most dominant leagues. Just this season, we’ve seen Birmingham City promoted back to the Premiership a year after their relegation, but conversely have also witnessed the relegation of Norwich City, Southampton and Charlton Athletic, all of which participated in the Premier League just four years ago; Charlton just two years ago. So what will the Baggies have to do to assure promotion to Premier League next season?

David Young Matthew Evans: I've supported West Brom all my life, and it's fair to say that they give me my fair share of ups and downs. I'm always guaranteed an emotional rollercoaster of a season whatever division the Baggies are in. I try to remain positive in my views on Albion, although that is impossible at some points. My favourite Albion player of the moment is Youssuff Mulumbu, and of my lifetime it has to be Super Bob Taylor.You can follow me on twitter @MattEvansWBA
