West Brom fans are baffled by Slaven Bilic’s decision to not name Kamil Grosicki in his matchday squad for a second game running.
Grosicki, 32, was brought in from Hull City in January to provide extra cover to the attack but is yet to start a Championship game for Albion and failed to make it onto the bench against Birmingham and Brentford.
West Brom’s attack was lacklustre – to say the least – against both Blues and the Bees and someone with Grosicki’s pace and impact off the bench could have come in really handy.
That is why so many Albion fans are wondering what has happened to the rapid Polish winger, who is not getting a look in at the moment.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
Can you ask Slav where Grosicki is?

id also love to know why he keeps him in over Grosicki who got 12 Goals and assists in a awful hull team as well, considering he’s done nothing since november

And where’s Grosicki ?

Why ain’t Grosicki in a squad of 20 ? Has to be more to it than meets the eye? Pay for him in January and hardly seen him play. #wba @JosephMasi_Star is he injured ? One of the players unnamed in the championship who’s had COVID? What’s going on ?

Just asked the question in our group chat. Something isnt right considering people were saying he looks very dangerous and in form.

How on earth is Edwards in the squad ahead of Grosicki ?? https://t.co/QKNqcLjBJw

Austin is our best goal scoring striker and Grosicki is country miles better then anything Phillips or Edwards offer.

Grosicki simply has to make the bench, at least, against Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday night.
Although he has not exactly set the world alight since joining the Baggies, it is clear that Bilic needs to find a way to add some oomph to his side when they seem so lethargic, lacking in ideas and lacking in fitness.
It could be that Grosicki’s not being involved due to a fitness or injury issue but he scored against Aston Villa in a warm-up game and Bilic would have surely revealed an issue if there was one?
It is an odd situation but hopefully there are answers on the horizon.
Grosicki can make a far greater impact than Kyle Edwards so we would much rather see him coming off the bench late doors.
In other West Brom news, Bilic is eyeing up a move for this West Ham defender.
