Sky Sports pundit names West Brom as club that need to turn things around most in EFL

West Brom are the Football League team that needs to turn things around the most or face a horror 2022/23 season, according to Sky Sports pundit George Elek.

Albion were relegated last season to the Championship but were expected to be one of the top contenders to bounce straight back up to the Premier League.

But after a shocking season which saw them finish the campaign in tenth place despite a managerial change midway through the campaign, Elek told skysports.com that their ‘atrocious’ season means they have the most to turn around this summer.

“West Brom had an atrocious season,” he said.

“They appointed Valerien Ismael at the beginning of the season with so much positivity of being able to bounce back to the Premier League by the end of the season.

“It didn’t work under him and they then brought Steve Bruce in and he had an underwhelming time until a 5-0 win against Barnsley.

“The CEO Khaled El-Ahmad has come out saying they need to change every aspect of the club – including the way it’s been run these past couple of years.”

Outside eyes

Obviously this season has been absolutely horrendous for the Baggies, but it’s nice to hear from a voice outside of those associated with the club that it looks that way too.

This season has been nothing short of a disaster, with only 67 points in the tally and almost as many defeats as wins across the season.

There is a clear path for the club to get back on track and improve this summer, but plans must be executed swiftly and effectively to have any chance of success.

Now they are under pressure to succeed, with parachute payments set to come to an end for them at the end of next season which makes it all the more difficult to get back to the Premier League.

It’s their final chance, and a big task for the club to get correct, but they have no option. It’s this year or a long wait for the club to get back to the top flight.
