The Hawthorns is home to one of England’s most iconic footballing sides, West Bromwich Albion. The ground was inaugurated back in the 1900’s and has a capacity of around 27,000 seats in which die-hard Albion fans enjoy watching their side week in, week out. In 2020 the club celebrated 120 years at the Hawthorns.
Join us as we take a trip down memory lane and witness some of the greatest goals to grace the famous ground.
JAMES MORRISON VS MANCHESTER UNITED
A young James Morrison volleyed home one of the greatest strikes you’ll ever see to bring Albion level with Alex Ferguson’s infamous Red Devils.
The Englishman, who was renowned for his ability to strike the ball, found himself in the right place at the right time to smash the ball well past United defenders and leave goalkeeper, Thomas Kuszczak grasping at thin air.
ANDY JOHNSON VS BOLTON WANDERERS
After a tough 04/05 season for West Bromwich Albion, who were fighting hard in a relegation scrap, substitute Andy Johnson provided his side with a lifeline after the Welshman took his chance as a substitute to convert from point-blank range – ensuring jubilant celebrations at The Hawthorns.
ZOLTAN GERA VS LIVERPOOL
They don’t get much better than this!
Another outside the box screamer, this time coming from a corner that was cleared away by Liverpool’s Skrtel. Zoltan Gera has time to chest and bring the ball down only to blast it right into the left top corner, putting the Baggies in front against Liverpool just before the break.
CHRIS BRUNT VS ARSENAL
Club legend Chris Brunt certainly knew how to hit the ball throughout his career. This strike against Arsenal is one that will go down in the history books as he equalised against the Gunners through a disguised free-kick.
The free-kick was taken by Brunt who found a gap in Arsenal’s wall with Almunia unable to get down in time making it 1-1.
