West Brom man Callum Robinson criticised Don Goodman
Sky Sports pundit Don Goodman criticised West Brom ace Callum Robinson after he was withdrawn at half-time against Birmingham City.
The Republic of Ireland star came into this match in fine form after five goals over the international break, but he struggled to get involved for whatever reason.
In the end, he barely touched the ball, and Valerien Ismael withdrew him at half-time, and Goodman said on Sky Sports Football on Friday night: “He struggled, didn’t he a little bit Robinson? There is no question about that.
“I think maybe a bit of fatigue?”
Not the night that Robinson was expecting.
After his incredible exploits with Ireland, you might have been expecting him to light up this game.
However, the Baggies failed to get the ball to him very often, and he couldn’t make anything of it when he did get the ball.
This seems like it just wasn’t Robinson’s or West Brom’s night as they struggled to create many chances against a solid if unspectacular Birmingham side, but they did eventually get the breakthrough.
It was all set for Robinson to come in and make a huge impact and carry on his sublime international form, but it wasn’t to be, and we just have to hope that he isn’t injured.
His replacement Jordan Hugill offered more of a physical presence, but he couldn’t find the back of the net either.
In truth, this wasn’t a great performance from the Baggies, and Robinson certainly wasn’t the worst performer of the night.
