Way, way too early. There were complaints about Raheem Sterlin's behaviour off the field last season and he went off the boil, now this season he's one of the best young players in the world. Berahino has the talent to be a good premier league striker, foolish to close doors on him.

As an aside he's clearly better than Chris Wood, he starts for England under 21's ahead of Danny Ings who's arguably the best striker in the championship.

"Better than" Wood in terms of natural ability, but that alone never got anybody anywhere.  Attitude and work ethic turn good players into outstanding players.  Without those he will be nothing more than a Chopra or a Jeffers.

I know saido through a friend. He's a nice kid that is young and still learning.

too many people look to pick holes.

To be honest mate people aren't having to pick holes,he is giving the ammo to his doubters all by himself.

Nas would have imparted him for a max of 30 seconds. People use them As you feel wonderful for a little bit and then it's over and done with, no comedown, no not sleing for 3 days, no being twisted the entire day after. Seems like another excuse to have a go at Sadio.

Did he even say he was going to take legal action over the Morrison incedent? Or was that just crap in the press?

Than can you please explain to me the value of taking it. ???

No doubt he has potential , but he could end up like Ravel Morrison playing in the Championship if he doesn't wise up.

Lots of tension and anger around chez Hawthorns at the moment from fans (understandably so).

He's not doing himself any favours but he is a kid and hopefully a stern word come seasons end could have him back on the right track and see an improvement both on and off he field next year.

All this "get rid" nonsense is short sighted. This lad can easily turn this round but he needs some guidance.
If someone gave me 15k a week at 19 im not sure i'd wouldn't come off the rails just a bit.

Need a senior player/coach at the club to come and put his head straight. 
Maybe someone like Cyrille (as mentioned earlier) or a Kevin Campbell type.

People can't keep knocking the press all the time. We have made our own headlines over the past couple of seasons. Give them the ammunition and, of course, they will use it. They aren't there to just report good news, that's what the official Albion site is for. Odemwingie, Berahino, Anelka ... just a disgrace to the shirt. With Berahino, there's still time to turn it around, if he gets his head right. I hope but doubt he will. Really long for  the days when we had proper heroes at this club, Super Kev, Super Bob, Andy Hunt etc. Even The Horse..would love a player with his commitment now

Nitrous Oxide, what next?
Unless someone puts a choke chain on this kid he's not worth the bother. The clubs been dragged through enough of late. Time to put a stop to it,.

Sack him. I'm all for giving people a second and maybe even third chance but this kid seems more hassle than he's worth.

Even Brentford got rid due to a bad attitude.

I know we wont sack him but I hope we've made it very clear that anything else will be punished severely. All his humble words at the start of the season seem very hollow now.

The only good thing to come out of this is that is happened after the Man United game and so was around 5-6 weeks ago.

Since then there has been the 'Morrison punch' stuff and hopefully that was the moment when he realised he was been a tool, i dont think anybody wants to go to work everyday knowing their work mates want to have a pop at them and by all accounts there were a fair few waiting to do it! Also i think a lot of fans reaction was good he deserved the slap for been an arrogant so and so, he didnt seem to get much sympathy and so lets just hope the penny has dropped after that.

If this 'legal high' happened since the Cardiff game i think the club would have a big decision to make as it would seem he wouldnt of learnt his lesson, but it happened a while ago and so i think he is now very close to being his last chance.

Its over to Saido, has a lot of potential, but potential with the wrong attitude means nothing, lets hope recent history is just him been a spoilt brat and he he now knows what he can and cant do to be the top footballer he can possibly be.

I have to smile reading this thread, half of the people saying get rid, are the same people that were saying give him 30k per week JP you tight ar@e!!

Perhaps, now people will start to understand why you cannot just go around giving out 4 yr contracts at 20-40k per week............ becomes a very expensive liability when it does not work out.

I'm surprised no one has given the lad any credit for his performance yesterday on this thread. People were quick to give him stick for his mistake against Cardiff. I thought he did well yesterday against a physical defence and with a bit of luck could have scored another. This kid is the future for us, we need to support him. Without his goals this season we'd be in big trouble.

He worked hard and did well. I agree he needs support and I hope Pepe and/or one or two of the senior players can give him some support on and off the pitch. He clearly needs steering in the right direction sometimes but he certainly has talent.
I get the impression that Pepe in his selection responds to the work that people are putting in during the week so it could be that Saido has knuckled down since his couple of recent episodes.
I did think Vydra was unlucky to be left out though given his performances in the last 2 home games.

played well yesterday and with the right attitude,should have done better with the 2 clear cut chances he had in 2nd half but deserves credit for his overall performance;i was surprised vydra didn't start as I think at this stage he is way ahead of berahino technically but hopefully this will come in time

He's probably worth north of 5 mill,he's being paid thousands a day,he's still a kid and even though many might not like it,he's employed as a footballer not a role model??
Get a bit fed up of people slating him for doing nothing wrong,Morrison should shut up,on Saturday against West Ham he was in the corner,did he keep the ball??,no lost it and they broke,and laughing gas??really??

I noticed that too. Morrison has been abysmal all season. Berahino has got goals and assists, crucial ones too. Berahino has great potential. A very valuable asset.

Difference is that Morrisson has proved that he can play in this division season on season, ok he's not pulled up any trees this season but neither have the likes of Van Persie. He's had a blip and hopefully he can get back to form for next season.
Berahino has the talent but has yet to prove that he has the disposition to perform season after season. He's a kid that needs to learn a bit of respect and humility.
That cuffing that Mozza gave him might just have been the wake up notice that he needed.

I wonder if that's the first time Mozza has been compared to Van Persie?

JM has, to be fair, been more than pants this season, but I thought he put a good shift in when he came on last Saturday.

And quite agree about him slapping Saido, seems the boy needed a reminder about not getting too big headed and JM served him notice.

Not given the credit he deserves. He's scored some vital goals. 4 in our 7 wins including 3 winners. Where would we be without those goals eh?

Spot on.  Remove Lukaku's goals from last season and we'd have been nine points worse off.  Remove Saido's from this season and we're seven points worse off.  Scoring one game-changing goal is infinitely more valuable to us than scoring ten consolation goals, and although he's got a long way to go yet, Berahino has that knack.
