New West Brom manager Alan Pardew says he wants to bring attacking football to the Hawthorns this season.

As reported by the Telegraph, Pardew says he wanted to send a message to both the fans and the squad at the weekend by picking an attacking line-up to face his former employers Crystal Palace.

The Baggies started with three strikers as Pardew named Salomon Rondon, Hal Robson-Kanu and Jay Rodriguez all in the same team.

I wanted to send a message. Not just to the fans here but to the players. To say OK, we can play with three strikers, we can be positive and go for teams.

Former Baggies manager Tony Pulis had been known for his conservative style of play at the Hawthorns, something Pardew is looking to move away from.

West Brom showed signs of positivity, despite being unable to break the deadlock against Palace at the weekend, with the game finishing 0-0.

After 15 games West Brom are currently three points above the relegation zone with games against the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal to come before the new year.
