Ian Clarkson finds the Baggies boss hopeful of moments worthy of record this season...
Like a modern-day Roy Castle, Bryan Robson is hoping to witness a host of records tumble this season.
Record Breakers was a successful television programme in the 1970s and Castle would watch in amazement as all manner of weird and wonderful records were broken on a weekly basis.
Albion's manager isn't walking round with the Guinness Book of Records under his arm and don't expect Norris McWhirter to appear as the official adjudicator, but if Albion keep breaking Premiership records, then it is sure to be a catalyst for success according to Robson.
The Premiership is full of its own self-importance and their self-appointed statisticians have rewritten the history books to such an extent that prior to 1993, nothing is of any relevance.
Albion's rich history has been diluted to such an extent that last season's 2-0 home victory over Manchester City was heralded by Premiership chiefs as their record win.
Robson, who has played an integral role in Albion's rich heritage, isn't fooled by Sky's attempts to obliterate more than 100 years of history, but is convinced he can use it as a tool in Albion's battle against relegation.
Another Premiership record fell during Saturday's win against Arsenal and Robson is sure it won't be the last occasion Premiership anoraks are rewriting the history books.
"I think the records prove that it is 32 years since we last beat Arsenal at home," said Robson
"You sometimes lose the history of the club with the advent of the Premiership. I was amazed last season when we beat Manchester City and somebody told me that was a record win in the Premiership for Albion.
"It was only 2-0 and then we went to Charlton later in the season and won 4-1, so that was another record broken.
"You can go a long time without a win against the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool because of their records over the years.
"Someone told me it was the first time ever in a Premiership match we have come back from a goal behind to win the game.
"You start to look at things like that and, if we can keep breaking these sorts of records, then we can keep moving forwards and it should give the boys renewed confidence.
"Beating a team like Arsenal can move us forward although they weren't really bonus points, as we let ourselves down in games against Birmingham and Wigan. We have made up for it to a certain degree by beating a team like Arsenal."
One of the biggest factors behind their record-breaking victory was the form of Kanu.
The enigmatic striker was inspirational against his former club and proved that he is finally coming to terms with life at The Hawthorns.
Critics questioned whether Kanu cared because of his laid back style, but Robson insists the fires burn brightly within the Nigerian forward.
However, Albion's manager is convinced that Kanu has finally adjusted to the different mindset needed at a club like Albion compared to his previous employers.
"Kanu had always played at top clubs and he came to West Brom with team were struggling against relegation and you need a totally different attitude within a club to combat that," admitted Robson.
"It has taken him time to get used to that but in preseason he was probably our best player and it was unfortunate that he picked up a hamstring injury
"I think he understands what West Brom is about and what his role within a club like this is.
"We know we aren't going to win loads of major honours and push for Europe at this moment in time, but we want to get away from fighting relegation.
"I nearly always play him in the tough games away at Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea because he retains the ball better than anyone else at the club.
"You have got to keep possession of the ball to take away pressure.
"Kanu is a winner and he cares.
"He has fantastic ability and the one thing I have said to him is that to get back to the reputation he had as a kid, he needs to score more goals.
"When we are on the training pitch no one can live with what he does.
"He can be a talismanic figure like Eric Cantona or Paul Gascoigne.
"But he has to do it week in and week out, not just against the big teams.
"He needs to raise his game against the teams we are expected to beat, as he has the ability and mentality to do that.
