Goal scoring record in the championship of 70 in 132. That’ll do the job.

Very pleased about this. Good goalscoring pedigree and a bit of a ruthless streak about him. From the photo, seems to have gone grey rather rapidly.


It was all the worry in case he didn't put pen to paper in time.  ;D

Welcome Charlie.  :)

£4m for a proven goalscorer in championship, good deal by the club if he stays fit.

One injury plagued thirty year old but proven goalscorer out and one thirty year old injury plagued but proven goalscorer in....with a million plus quid in the bank and another £5m to come??  Is Jeremy back in the building? 

Happy with that!!

If he can emulate Kevin Phillips then it's shrewd.

Was a bit worried how much we were paying due to his injuries but £4m is nothing if he gets near full fitness in this league he will kill it. Welcome to the Albion Charlie!

For the fans worried about his injury record, just to point out he hasn’t been injured since jan 2018.

If we can get a tune out of him he will score 20+.

Great signing especially at the price.

Bang on. I think it's signing of the day for the Championship.

This has to have been intentional. Hats off to the Albion media team. For the wrestling geeks , Charlie Austin’s announcement was at 3.16 . Austin 3.16  ;D

Think we’ve got our last away day theme , stone cold Steve Austin theme ;D

4m is an absolute steal if he recovers the form he's capable of. Strong, good in the air and both feet if he hits the ground running he more than capable of hitting 20+ in this league.
