Baggies were forced into a change of kit for last weekend’s draw with Fulham at the Hawthorns.
West Brom have run out of socks!
The hooped socks that accompany the Baggies’ home kit (modelled below by bad-boy Nicolas Anelka) have completely run out – even those in the club shop.
The club failed to lodge an order with supplier Adidas in time and a spokeman admitted to the Birmingham Mail: “It will be blue socks for the rest of the season!” (See cover photo.)
A club shop spokesman also admitted: “I don’t know why they wore navy on Saturday, but we haven’t any in stock, which might explain things.”
