Kamil Grosicki has earned a call up to the Poland squad for March’s world cup qualifiers despite barely playing for West Brom.
Our winger has been called up to a side that boasts attacking talent like Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski and Arkadiusz Milik but he can’t get a game for us.
Poland are not a bad side and they wouldn’t call up Grosicki purely for his experience, they clearly believe he has something to offer.

So why doesn’t Sam Allardyce?
We’ve been lacking any kind of threat in front of goal this season and Big Sam has decided to completely ostracise a player who scored an international hattrick at the start of the campaign.
We’re not suggesting that Grosicki is the answer to all of our problems or that he would’ve single-handedly kept us up but you have to seriously question why a fully-fledged current international can’t get a game for us.
The winger’s last appearance for us came in the 2-1 loss to West Ham on January 19, a game in which he picked up an assist.
What kind of reward is that?
Pick up an assist then don’t even make a nine-man bench for the next 10 match days as other players fail to contribute and your side picks up one win.
That’s simply nonsensical and Poland clearly see that Grosicki has plenty to offer.
Allardyce must be questioned on why he thinks Poland have called up a player who can’t get in arguably the worst side in the Premier League’s matchday squad.
Having said that, Grosicki also struggled for game time under Slaven Bilic so maybe there’s something we don’t know.
This is why these questions must be asked because to us, it looks like West Brom are in the wrong for not playing Grosicki.
Of all the questions that need asking at the end of the season this one won’t be high on the list.
But it’s another baffling moment in what is an awful season and we’d like some answers.
