West Bromwich Albion podcaster and journalist Adrian Goldberg has been sharing his praise for Baggies attacker and his performance during the club’s recent 5-2 victory over in the Premier League. 

This comes after Goldberg recently co-hosted the latest episode of West Brom-themed podcast The Liquidator where he spoke about a number of topics concerning Sam Allardyce’s side, including their win at Stamford Bridge.

Nice easy one to start off with, who currently sits top of the table?

On the subject of Robinson, who scored two of West Brom’s goals in the game against Thomas Tuchel’s side, Goldberg had this to say about the player and his first goal of the match.

He said: “I just think they’ve missed a trick with Callum Robinson, and I’ve argued this point long and hard that he offers you something that Hal Robson-Kanu doesn’t up front, if only it’s a bustling energy and determination, but also as that goal proved he’s got real quality.

“There’s obviously a knack to getting that quality out of him week-in-week-out, but it’s not for want of trying on Callum Robinson’s part so I was delighted to see that go in, what a corking goal.”

West Brom originally signed Robinson on a loan deal from fellow Premier League side Sheffield United back in the 2020 January transfer window before signing him on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee during the following summer window.

Overall, the 26-year-old, who is currently valued at £5.4 million, has made 39 appearances for West Brom in which he has managed to score eight goals and provide two assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Adrian Goldberg’s comments on Robinson… 

Given how Robinson managed to score two goals and earn himself an incredible match rating of 9.03/10 for his performance, making him the second-highest rated Baggies player on the day (as per WhoScored), it’s understandable why Goldberg has been sharing this praise for the Irishman.

Would you start until the end of the season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Moving forward, with West Brom currently eight points away from safety with eight league games left to play, if Robinson can keep up this scoring form until the end of the season, there’s every possibility that his goals could well keep the club in the Premier League for next season.
