West Brom supporter who dozed off gets rude awakening by fans singing about him

A sleepy West Brom fan got a rude awakening when he was serenaded by thousands of Southampton supporters.

The Championship meeting between the Saints and the Baggies was no bore draw but wasn’t exciting enough for one individual in the away end at St Mary’s. The supporter, who was sat next to the partition separating the home and away fans, was spotted, with members of the home faithful chanting: “How s*** must you be, he’s fallen asleep” and then: “He’s still asleep, he still asleep, he’s still asleep.”

To the amusement of both sets of supporters, the fan eventually stirred, with Saints followers cheering and then bellowing: “He’s woken up, he’s woken up, he’s woken up”.

Those quick-witted Southampton fans were celebrating a home victory too as they edged to a 2-1 win against one of their promotion rivals. Will Smallbone and Adam Armstrong were the Saints’ goalscorers, either side of Kyle Bartley’s leveller. West Brom boss Carlos Corberan thought his side deserved a point after dominating the second half.

“I am not happy because we didn’t win,” he said. “We need to keep growing and attack better in their box and defend better in our box.

“If you analyse the way we play you will see how well we played in the second half. The volume of attack in the second half was more than the first. The fair result would have been a point for both teams.”
