At their best, Austin for me.

Lets put it this way. If we had Gayle instead of Austin this season , we would have been promoted now.  He would have delivered 20 goals and that would have been enough.

Gayle's record last season speaks for itself.  Austin has been a complete flop !!

The sooner he's gone the better.  When we got him the Southampton fans were saying how rubbish he was.

Thats a shocker!   If you mean Austin at his career best, then yes, but best at the Albion not a chance!  CA has been an appalling bit of business IMO.

I took it to mean career best. Austin has been a far better player than Dwight.

Thanks Jacko, of course that's what I meant, absolutely no comparison.

Would have to agree has Charlie scored more at a highr level
Same has Brown v Bull, the Tatter scored more goals but mainly in lower div Than Bomber

The tatter never scored in the top division.

I actually really admired Steve Bull as a player (he should have been our hero) but he couldn't hold a candle to Bomber, who wasn't even a striker.

I think you will find you are wrong there. He scored 2 goals for us in season 1986/87 when we were in the old division 2. He played for us the previous season when we were relegated from division 1 but didn't score.

Austin is a very good striker for me. Be daft to bin him off

You need some lessons from Jacko, he has a far higher catch rate than you are going to achieve with that calibre of post

What's going on with him?  Bilic doesn't rate him?  Too unfit?  Or both?

Exactly what we needed today in the box, really puzzled as to how he did not get on ahead of Edwards or Zohore

You all saw him against blues, he can’t run, and he didn’t look bothered...HRK is by no means Didier drogba....But he is the ONLY one of the three that can run and head a ball .

He was needed after about ten minutes v Blues as well.

Another member of our squad who must be seriously peeved when he scored two goals as St Andrew's then has barely been seen since.

Behind Zohore in the pecking order now?

If you want work rate then Austin is definitely not your guy but today, we needed a bit of magic in the second half in and around the box and that is where he comes to life.

We had them pinned in second half until that damn drinks break, he could've been the difference between picking the lock and not...

I.cant quite agree, Krovinovic, Diangana, Pereira would walk into almost every other Champ team, yet its 7 hours without a goal, something to do with the strikers being league 1 standard.  Brentford hardly created anything either although they looked a bit more composed.  Probably the worst centre forwards since 85/86 in the days of George Reilly.

You have your opinion

First half....first bloody half ....we break
Grady has the ball (pereira is on the floor) Kanu runs off him to the right
NOT ONE SINGLE OTHER WBA PLAYER managed to get in to the opponents half ...its sawyers, it’s Livermore, it’s phillips

Zippy Kanu is dreadful and got hooked at half time. How can you defend him?

Agreed Sawyers, Livermore, Phillips were poor tonight but HRK is worse.  He hardly ever scores in a eam that is still op, it's putting pressure on others.  Rather like an opening batsman that always gets out before 20, the others think christ I need to get the runs to bail the team out!

I’ve never said he’s great, but he has had a good season and out of the three options he is head and shoulders.
Austin won’t run again until greggs opens....Zohore is surely doing this for a bet...has he won a comp in the express and star ...the guy that got a gig in Southampton under sourness looks more of a professional.

HRK had a good season, are you for real?  He has scored a measly 10 goals in a team top of the league.  Bob Taylor scored 37 in 1992/93 in a team finishing 4th.  That's what I'd call a good season!
