‘A waste of wages’ – West Brom consider new deal for out of favour player: the verdict



The clash of the weekend takes place tonight at Bramall Lane when promotion contenders Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion go head-to-head. 

The two clubs sit third and fifth in the Championship table respectively but with just one point between them, with the match-up a real chance for both sides to close the gap on the top-two.

The Baggies are currently without a win in their last two games, causing them to fall behind Leeds United in the race for automatic promotion.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side currently occupy second place in the table and although Darren Moore’s side are only three places below them, they sit six points adrift.

Offensively, the Baggies have been brilliant. They remain the division’s top-scorers and the trio of Dwight Gayle, Jay Rodriguez and Harvey Barnes remains a lethal one.

But that brilliant form has left the summer signing of Wes Hoolahan looking a bit odd. The experienced Irishman has rarely got a look in and with his contract expiring this winter the club are now considering whether to extend it.

So, should they?

We discuss…

Gary Hutchinson

Not for me, no.

He’s not done enough to show he has value for the Baggies.

He would be good at a Rotherham, or maybe in L1 with Wycombe, but not at the top of the Championship.

It’s time to let go.

Alfie Burns 

I wouldn’t keep him on.

He’s nowhere near the team and that doesn’t look like changing anytime soon.

In the past, Hoolahan has been great, but he’s no longer at the level Albion need him to be.

Jacob Potter

It would be a waste of wages.

Hoolahan is a technically brilliant player with the ball, but I can’t see him getting anywhere near enough game time this season.

He’s yet to make a league start and West Brom should be looking to get him . off the ages bill at the earliest opportunity.
