West Brom fans who insist chairman Jeremy Peace does his best to avoid them will have their opportunity to pull him up on it during the club’s AGM on February 9.

PIES FOR CHANTS
A tray of delicious Pukka Pies goes to the sender of our favourite chant of the week and Wally was in the lead for telling us Tottenham fans greeted the arrival of Wigan’s 5-foot-5 Albert Crusat with a chorus of “why’s your mascot on the pitch?”

That was until we heard from ToffeeBen, who told us Everton’s latest chant in honour of the new signing is a Wizard Of Oz favourite - “Follow the Jelavic road”.

Send the funniest chant you’ve heard at football this week to steve.anglesey@mirror.co.uk, with your name, address and choice of Pukka Pies filling – choose from all-steak, steak and kidney, chicken and mushroom, chicken balti or cheese and onion.
