Reports linking Albion with a move for Callum Robinson. I understand there is definitely something in it. Looks to be one of the three players on Bilic's shortlist for attacking reinforcements. Boss still wants two before the deadline. #wba

Underwhelming

Why?

Hes very good at this level. We need some pace upfront and someone who can finish....he fits the bill. Call him Robinsinho and you would probably find him overwhelming

He's 24 so you could say that last year he started fulfilling his potential. Struggled for minutes this year so he maybe has something to prove. Wonder if this would be a loan or permanent signing.

Exactly, if his name was Cal De Roberto then everyone would be buzzing. Laughable  ;D

Unreal ain't it.

P.s I think Robinson more a midfielder than a striker ?

What's his position? Nixon refers to him as striker with pace but some seem to think he's a midfielder? Can't say I remember him at all from last season.

He's a striker who doesn't score any goals, which is why you can't remember him, should fit in well! He's played 130 championship games so far and scored 31 goals which is an average of 11 goals per season. We tried to sign him in July, he turned us down and signed for Sheff Utd. Now they are getting rid after six months. He's never scored more than 12 in a season - I wish we'd stop going after these mediocre strikers.

Hardly exciting.

42 in 181 appearances and hardly prolific in the championship.

was hoping for something more proven with a promotion on the line and us in a good position.

As everyone was raving about J-Rod the other day...Robinson scored as many from open play as J-Rod did last season from 20 fewer games  ;D

Yes, yes, we know all that, but is he as nice a bloke as JRod and has he got a ponytail?  :D

The dream would be to then also bring in a left back and another winger...

Sheff Utd fans had a chuckle at the reference to "a striker with pace". Not quite how they view him.

If we sign him as on a permanent deal, it feels like a mistake, but as a short term loan move it's probably a fairly solid signing. Not 100% sure he offers a huge upgrade on Kanu/Austin/Zohore but maybe worth a shot and better than him going to a rival I suppose.

What I would say though is that Robinson alone isn't enough to improve us in a big way. Robinson and a different style of attacking player however would give us more options.

I genuinely think Bilic puts more stock into a striker who can hold the ball up and bring the supporting cast into the game rather than a goal scorer, ideally you want a striker who can do both but those cost £25 million.

He does , all about midfielders for Bilic .
As long as he wants Robinson and not someone else at the club I'm fine with it.
