‘If you want to call it that’ Luton Town boss Graeme Jones takes a swipe at West Brom
Luton Town boss Graeme Jones has seemingly aimed a dig at West Bromwich Albion’s gamesmanship in Saturday’s 2-1 win at Kenilworth Road.
The Hatters went into the break with a one goal advantage, but the game turned in three second half minutes as Grady Diangana scored a brace for the Baggies.
Jones, who was part of Darren Moore’s back room staff at The Hawthorns last season has already claimed that his side were the ones that looked like the ex-Premier League team.
He went on to berate his own side for not creating enough after half time and that subs Kazenga LuaLua and Izzy Brown failed to make the impact he was after.
“When you put two new players on with the quality of Izzy and Kaz, I expected a little bit more of a threat,” Jones said.
“I just felt like we needed to get some fresh legs on the pitch.”
Jones then cheekily referred to Albion’s second half tactics, which many home supporters felt were done with the sole intention of winding the clock down.
“From a real strong position, we dug in there, and we came through a really difficult period to have some hope in the game, but not enough.
“I thought West Brom managed the game well, if you want to call it that, that’s the respectful way of putting it, but that was the afternoon.”
On what was a frustrating afternoon for Jones, he also suggested that Luton had gifted Albion’s goals, rather than Slaven Bilic’s side earning them.
