A number of West Brom fans reacted to the performance of new signing Jayson Molumby during the Republic of Ireland’s 1-1 draw at home to Azerbaijan in a World Cup qualifier on Saturday.
Molumby was added to West Brom’s squad to further bolster their midfield options late on in the summer transfer window.
That came with the midfielder initially joining the Baggies on a season-long loan deal with a view to a permanent from Premier League Brighton.
The midfielder had spent time out on loan with the likes of Millwall and Preston over the last two seasons, and he will be eager to impress once he makes his West Brom debut after the international break.
The first chance that West Brom have had to assess the qualities that Molumby could offer for the Baggies this season was for the Republic of Ireland against Azerbaijan on Saturday.
Quiz: Have West Brom won or lost more against each of these 25 English teams?
He was selected to start the game for Ireland and he managed to deliver a promising enough display in terms of his work rate out of possession. That saw Molumby win three duels and make one tackle and one interception in the 63 minutes he was on the field.
Many West Brom fans liked what they saw from the Baggies’ new midfielder and suggested that they could see why Valerien Ismael decided to add him to his squad in the final days of the transfer window.
Here, we take a look at some of the best reactions on social media…
Watched Molumby today. Wasn't bad tbf. Got an edge to him and prepared to put his foot in. Mainly accurate passes from centre mid too. A bit one- paced and not sure how he'd do with the pressing game. Guess he's not match fit yet though.

Like the look of Molumby judging off that Ireland game. Always looks busy and gets stuck in #wba

Defo was. A real beast. Not afraid at all. V impressive. Can see why he’s been added by VI. Tailor made for VI

Strong running but committed too many fouls, with Mowatt and Livermore booked every other game we will struggle to finish a game with a full team . Lol !!
