We tested ChatGPT’s knowledge of West Bromwich Albion and it did remarkably well.

The latest craze in the world of technology is the artificial intelligence application ChatGPT, so we thought we would give it a go with a West Bromwich Albion spin.

In case you haven’t yet jumped on the bandwagon yourself, ChatGPT is a new chatbot developed by OpenAI to follow instructions in prompts and provide a detailed response.

Users can ask ChatGPT near-enough anything they like and the system will more often than not give a surprisingly well-informed answer.

With that in mind, we quizzed the software to find out its level of knowledge about Albion and it did rather well, to be fair to it.

Having asked it to provide its best Baggies XI of all-time, ChatGPT had a decent go with some superb explanations for its choices.

Although it did miss out on lots of recent players and two huge names in Ray Barlow and Billy Bassett, many would argue the rest were worthy of being in there.

So, without further ado, here is the all-time West Brom starting XI that ChatGPT provided us – with some nostalgic pictures, as well as the application’s explanations.
