The Baggies were the surprise package of the first half of the Premier League season, rising as high as third in the table, until a winless run of four games saw them slip up.

However the Hungarian's fourth goal of the season drew West Brom level against Norwich before Romelu Lukaku's header gave Steve Clarke's side a welcome win at the Hawthorns just before Christmas.

The Boxing Day win over QPR helped put the slump firmly behind West Brom, but Gera is convinced that the battle to beat Norwich will be remembered for the result but not the performance.

"For our game against Norwich we, including me, gave maybe our worst performances of the season," declared the 33-year-old to Nemzeti Sport.

"It's good to score a goal but the club's success is more important, and in the end we can be satisfied as we won.

"Having not won for four games, we needed that victory very much."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
