Berahino and Pulis key as Buzzword Bingo returns at the Hawthorns

Saido Berahino could play a big part in proceedings at the Hawthorns tonight, but it might be punters and not just his West Brom team that he pleases.

It’s Monday Night Football, which can only mean one thing, Buzzword Bingo is back!

Ladbrokes have priced a plethora of phrases and mutterings you might expect the duo of Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher to annunciate in the Sky Sports studio in the build-up to the game.

And it’s the Baggies main man who could hold the key for a number of options.

After his Deadline Day tantrum could his vow to ‘Never play under Jeremy Peace’ (2/1) again look short sighted if the ‘Future of English football’ (6/1) bags a ‘Hell of a strike’ (6/1)?

With his manager renowned for one style of play it could also be the baseball-capped gaffer in the west Midlands that delivers the value.

The ‘Pulis Effect’ (4/1) could make the hosts ‘Hard to break down’ (2/1) under the lights, which could leave the visiting Everton side looking well and truly like a ‘Mid-table team’ (3/1), and not one who could ‘Challenge for fourth spot’ (3/1).

That hour before kick off in the Sky Sports studio could be as important for fans as the action on the pitch.
