As Jim White slammed shut the January transfer window, the Albion looked well stocked defensively. With the meanest defensive in the football league, and a string of clean-sheets in the bag, the back line the bed-rock of a fabulous campaign to date. With no less than four centre-backs of proven Championship quality, and full-back reinforcements on the way, in the imminent returns of Liam Rosenior and Gaeten Bong everything was rosy in that particular part of the garden.
With the squad now locked down for the remainder of the season, the football gods took umbrage at the calm passage of the Good Ship Albion, and whipped up their storm clouds to test our resolve.
