West Bromwich Albion journalist and podcaster Chris Lepkowski has been sharing his thoughts on Baggies attacker Callum Robinson and his current role in the squad.
This comes after Lepkowski co-hosted a recent edition of Baggies-themed podcast The Liquidator, where he spoke about a variety of subjects concerning the Midlands club.
On the topic of West Brom’s recent 2-1 win over QPR in their recent Championship match in which Robinson came off the substitutes’ bench in the second half and assisted both of Karlan Grant’s goals, Lepkowski had this to say about the player.
He said: “What I will say is that I’m a little bit surprised that Robinson isn’t more involved.
“I just don’t understand the non-inclusion of him. I think that he’s a player who gives us something so much different and he seems to have become the go-to substitute when actually, I think he possibly should be starting.”
TIF Thoughts on Chris Lepkowski’s comments on Robinson…
The Midlands club originally signed Robinson on a loan deal from fellow Championship club Sheffield United during the 2020 January transfer window before securing him on a permanent deal for an undisclosed fee the following summer.
Given how Robinson has managed to score three goals and provide three assists in the Championship so far this season, in which he’s started five and appeared as a substitute three times, it’s understandable why Lepkowski thinks the player should be starting every game for the Baggies, as he appears to contribute regularly for the team.
Do you think Callum Robinson should be regularly starting games?
In our view, unless Valerien Ismael thinks Robinson would be better off being used as an impact sub, as he showed he can be against QPR, then we feel that he should be starting every game for them to see if he can help keep the Baggies’ unbeaten streak going.
