Steve Clarke: Is optimistic new trio can give West Brom added creativity

The trio join Nicolas Anelka, Matej Vydra, Scott Sinclair, Diego Lugano, Lee Camp and Goran Popov as summer signings for the Baggies.

And Clarke hopes the club's new arrivals will give his side some much-needed creativity this season.

"We needed to strengthen in the forward areas and we're very hopeful that Stephane and Victor will fit the bill," Clarke told the club's official website.

"Stephane is quick and direct and can be a match-winner. He has the individual skills that can turn a game.

"He creates chances for others as well as scoring his fair share of goals.

"Along with Morgan, I'm hoping Stephane will add more creativity to the team."

Anichebe arrived at The Hawthorns from Everton after his former club snapped up Romelu Lukaku, who spent last season on loan with West Brom.

Clarke believes Anichebe will give his side a different dimension in the final third of the field.

"Victor is a different kind of striker to what we already have here," he added.

"He is a big, strong, powerful targetman. He is the type of forward we identified that we needed to help us this season."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
