Clarke's flying start.
The Baggies manager saw his side win a rollercoaster encounter at the Stadium of Light, beating Sunderland 4-2. And his club is reaping the rewards of steady development and astute investment with the likes of 25-year-old Argentinian midfielder Claudio Yacob having slipped seamlessly into the team he inherited. Clarke said: "Claudio has come in from Argentina on a free S and he has been an outstanding signing for us.
"When I came to the Albion in the summer, I sat down with (sporting and technical director) Dan Ashworth and we spoke about what I could see as beneficial to the squad, and that was the type of midfield player I asked for. I watched six or seven DVDs on Claudio and decided he might do a half-decent job for us; he has done more than that."
