James McClean's debut for West Brom turned into a bit of a disaster
James McClean has had a tough return to the Premier League.
The Derry winger is no stranger to controversy, or hostile crowds.
Since moving to English football back in 2012, McClean has become something of a polarising figure due to his refusal to wear the memorial day poppy.
And it appears his recent decision to turn his back on the English national anthem and flag, during a pre-season friendly in the United States, hasn't gone down well with a section of the home crowd at the Hawthorns tonight.
McClean's Premier League debut for West Brom certainly didn't go to plan.
The midlands club were second best in all departments against Manchester City, McClean was subbed off at half-time and the crowd appeared to boo their new signing's every touch of the ball during the 3-0 defeat.
While Sky Sports commentator Alan Parry referred to James McClean as "Northern Irishman from Londonderry", despite the fact that McClean is a Republic of Ireland international, and Derry council recently voting to drop "London" from the city's name.
The 26 year old will have better nights in football.

People booing James McClean are idiots and have absolutely no idea about history or politics.

But McClean has suffered perhaps the greatest insult of all - only 0.2% of players have selected him in their Fantasy Football team.
