James McClean gets predictable backlash after stupid red card

Tom Victor

It had looked like James McClean had turned a corner.

After dropping out of the Premier League, the Irish international had clutched his second chance with both hands for Tony Pulis’ West Brom.

McClean scored his first goal for the club against Tottenham, and has looked like one of Albion’s biggest attacking threats.

So he could have done without the needless retaliation which brought him a red card against Bournemouth.

Even West Brom supporters knew the winger could have no complaints after a dangerous challenge on Adam Smith.

And his recent comments about Jurgen Klopp might come back to bite him.
