    West Brom number 15s goading of our fans after their second goal.

    What was that all about.
    Surprised no one else has commented or did I miss it.

    Very unprofessional and stupid.

    He will get his comeuppance if he continues in that vein.

    Austin wasnít it? All a bit childish, made himself look a bit of a tit. Trust him to get the bloody third though!!

    Why do football fans always get so annoyed about players giving it back a bit?

    Was he getting any stick from us? If so, it passed me by.

    Possibly not but fans don't usually require an invitation to give out stick.

    I don't mind players winding fans up so much, same as most chants, it's just banter and needs preserving.

    The fans moaning about players winding fans up are the same ones who complain about the sterilisation of the game.

    Itís a laugh isnít it, if Charlie Austin winding you up after scoring a goal makes you angry maybe going to football isnít for you.

    One of the best non-city things I remember is Adebayor slowly running down the pitch to celebrate a Man City goal in front of the Arsenal fans just to wind them up even more.

    Hang on. I'm asking what it was about.
    It's very unusual I can assure you home fan armchair warriors.

    What got him to react like that.?

    Well done on buying a ticket to watch football btw, some achievement not matched by many

    I remember Scott Murray running the entire length of the bob bank doing the ayatollah after scoring for Bristol City once. As annoying as it was I mostly felt fair play mate

    That was December 2001. Not much Christmas cheer going on after that or when the final whistle went as I recall 😂

    Back in the day old Gary Neville was a bit prone to gestures and goading Scousers and Gunner fans.

    It also provided City fans with the opportunity to retort with ĎMurray do the ayatollahí when we knocked them out of the play-off semis not so long after. Good times.

    Charlie Austin got plenty of abuse from our fans near the front. After the Baggies scored their second he gloated and pointed at those who had given him some stick. Then scored the third down the other end later on. Reminiscent of Hazard getting some hassle at Chelsea and then running over to our fans to celebrate. At least Austin didn't get anything thrown at him. He overdid his goal celebrations but at least it was at the other end of the pitch.

    Thanks. That makes sense now. You are right as from where I was standing he was looking and gesticulating a a particular section of our support throughout the goading.

    Re: West Brom number 15s goading of our fans after their second goal.

    Didnít notice it to be honest.
    As said above Scott Murray is the champion when it comes to celebrations against us.

    Just a laugh and it was good to see he was a Bluebird deep down 😂

    If we're going to deconstruct the relationship between fans and supporters - one example brought up in this thread being that fans have to recognise that players are going to give it back some - then part of it could also be players recognising how frustrating it is to see people on mega contracts dive and cheat.

    I hate diving but if you're going to go down that train of thought you could argue that they're paid that mega money to win not be gentlemen

    Charlie Austin is a known cokehead. No surprise he was getting a bit excitable.

    Re: West Brom number 15s goading of our fans after their second goal.

    Got to be honest I audibly laughed when he started doing that, fella behind me started calling for the ref to send him off. The well 'ard, Stone Island core of our fan base really are softer than a roll of Andrex.

    This is the one I would have stated, like everyone else in the ground at the time (except the BC fans) I was seething but have a little chuckle over it now, it's part and parcel, give a bit of grief, expect to take it back when the player has the opportunity. BANTER isn't it

    Thought it was quite funny tbf to him

    Felt quite honoured when Hazard came over to us after the goal instead of to his own fans. Like heíd only acknowledged that there was one set of fans who cared 👍.

    Probably pleased to actually get one over on us after all those failures with Belgium 😂

    Now hang on AA2, you got upset about someone dressed up as a boiler shaking his arse, Charlie boy was only defending his mate in the big white box :)
