West Brom roll out 1970s blue movie music to announce Anelka signing

The music sounds like it has been ripped straight from a 1970s sitcom about a sassy set of Los Angeles go-getters.

WEST BROM HAVE snaffled up the loveable, wandering striker that is Nicolas Anelka.

The former Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Real Madrid forward will link up with Shane Long at The Hawthorns next season and he looked postively bored at the prospect when he posed for photos at the ground on Thursday.

Anelka may have quickly tired of being asked to pose with his new No.39 jersey in every crevice of The Hawthorns and the Baggies’ training ground but that didn’t stop the club’s media team from jazzing up the video promo.

WBA coach Steve Clarke said, “We are missing a bit of firepower from last year – we’re trying to put that right – and to kick off with the signing of Nicolas at the start of the summer is a great boost for everyone at the club.”
