West Brom went crashing out of the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon, losing to League One side Blackpool on penalties.
Sam Allardyce made seven changes to his side at Bloomfield Road, but it was still packed with his Premier League players including Matheus Pereira.
One who was looking to impress was Kamil Grosicki, who was finally handed the chance to start this season with speculation surrounding his future.
The Polish international was one of the only bright sparks.
Grosicki got on the ball constantly, and although his end product wasn’t always at its best, it consistently caused the Tangerines.
The 32-year-old delivered the assist for Semi Ajayi’s first equaliser, and when things were looking bleak in the second-half, he won the penalty for Pereira to slam home and take the game into extra-time.
Another positive sign was his penalty in the shootout.
When his teammates were missing left, right and centre, Grosicki went first and showed them how it was done, perfectly rolling his kick straight down the middle.
Many West Brom fans have reacted to his performance on Saturday, and the majority claimed he was the only player to show any sort of desire or urgency.
Some want to see him against Wolves in the Premier League, with Big Sam now having a massive decision to make in arguably one of the most important games of the season, he simply can’t afford to lose this one embarrassingly.

There’s some players from this performance who we don’t need to see play again. Only one who’s shown anything different to what we aren’t used to seeing is Grosicki with his pace and direct approach #wba

How Grosicki has not been getting in the team i’ll never know. Levels above Diangana #wba

Only positive I can take from this is Grosicki should be in the starting 11 every week #wba

100%. Grosicki has played great. Not sure why he isnt playing regularly. You are correct that some players are not taking there chance.
