He's busting a gut to get there, as he can't believe some suckerwants to buy him.

F****** Hal Robson Kanu, and you wonder why the local Asian kids support Man U, Chelsea, etc.

Even the Dingles wouldn't buy him.

Laughing stock...again.

Cant see what the hate is about. Hes coming in as cover for Phillips on the right hand side now Sess has gone, and Leko probably being loaned out for a year. For free why not?

And Reading would have created more chances than we will!
Does anyone else feel stupid that we got embroiled in the Carvalho, Camacho, Slimani hype and we probably end up with the likes of Robson Kanu and McCarthy? When will we ever learn? :'(
Seeing as they're foreign with no Premier League experience, I don't see why we would have got them with Pulis in charge  :D (half-joking)

Even by our standards this is embarrassing. If we wanted him why didn't we sign him in July? He's been training with the club all summer so even he knows he's only getting signed as nothing better has come along. Championship here we come and after this window we deserved it....well the club does

this is desperate, he doesnt even after sign before 11 because hes a free agent, why is he busting a gut trying to get to us leaving the welsh camp behind

It's a ploy by the club to make it look like were actually doing something on deadline day. The bloke has been available all summer.

Matt Wilson ‏@mattwilson_star

At least he's a striker, and an upgrade on Anichebe. But Robson-Kanu trained with #wba in summer and wasn't signed then. He's a last resort


It sums up our situation, we have no other option and Robson-Kanu would be the only signing for striker role.

I feel like every last drop of optimism has been kicked out of me with this one. Cheap, small time and ambitionless.
There better be some good news to counter this or I think I'm done.

Because then the club can say they signed there no.1 target all along on deadline day

We know why sky didn't bother having a reporter at our ground or training base; they know how we work

Disappointed but not totally surprised

Can see Ulloa coming and maybe a final late surprise but not holding my breath

On the brink now of finishing with the club, after being a lifelong third generation Baggie.
They have taken the **** once to often.
Get us excited with names like Slimani and then sign Hal Robson fecking Kanu.

Cheers Albion enjoy the money you save.

If Hal Robson Kanu is the answer I have no idea what the question is.

Why are we worrying about signing him today.  He is out of contract.  We can sign him tomorrow if we miss out on decent targets.

Because we don't need cover! We already have Gardner and Leko, so to bring someone in who is not even as good as them makes no sense whatsoever, even for free (we still have to pay his wages!)

Even Pulis says we need players that improve our starting 11. He doesn't. Not even close.

But surely the whole point of all these £20-30 million Strikers linked was for if and only if we sold Berahino for £20 million.

As soon as we knew very early on this morning Berahino was probably going nowhere, so too was any hope of a big money striker signing today.

why is it always about signing someone for cover.....??
here's a new idea, why don't we try to always sign someone that more or less is bought to start immediately, and that by definition relagates the player that hasn't been performing to the bench/cover......that way we evolve and don't stagnate....??
What happened to the statement we will only pull in players that will improve us....!!!

There is no way the club can spin this as a positive signing, they can't say he was number 1 target cause we know he's not, he was a free agent and always will have been last resort, if he trained with us already we obviously didn't see enough to jump at the chance for him.

I really hope that this is a back up signing and TP and the board have some aces up their sleeve for later tonight.......

If he can hold up the ball he improves us in the current playing style.

Extremely underwhelming but obviously not the end of our business.

It does feel like a huge punch in the gonads when teams around us are signing proven forwards.

Stoke-Bony; Palace-Benteke and Remy; Boro-Negredo; Sunderland - Ndong; Swansea - Llorente and Baston; Soton - Boufal; Watford-Okaka

We are lucky Hull and Burnley haven't strengthened, but I think Andre Gray is an outstanding forward.

I've still got a feeling we'll pull a few rabbits out the hat
