West Bromwich Albion betting (2020 updated)
West Brom had a fierce rivalry with Aston Villa established in their early years, with three FA Cups being played between the two sides late in the 19th century.
However, it so happened that they haven’t often been in the same division since, and greater rivalry has risen with Wolverhampton Wanderers, referred to as the Black Country Derby. Birmingham City is also a club which they like to beat more than some, but it has never been in the same magnitude as the ones with Villa or Wolves.
In 1878, workers from the George Salter’s Spring Works in West Bromwich founded the club under the name of West Bromwich Strollers, and they renamed it to West Bromwich Albion two years later. They became a professional club in 1885, and in the next 10 years they played in five FA Cup finals, of which they won two. They were one of the 12 founding members of the Football League, which started in 1888. They moved to The Hawthorns in 1900, and it remains their home ground to this day.
Since those early days, they’ve been fluctuating between the top and the second tier of English football. They are among the clubs to have been crowned champions of England, winning the title in 1920. They have a total of five FA Cups to their name, along with the 1966 League Cup.
Since the late 1970s, WBA haven’t been able to compete for major trophies with the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal, and more recently Chelsea and Manchester City, but they remain relatively stable club that is positioned either in the top half of the Championship, or the lower half of the top tier. Since the reorganization which saw the First Division renamed to the Premier League in 1992, their best league finish so far was the eighth place in 2012/13.
