West Brom are really on a slide at the moment in the Sky Bet Championship and Slaven Bilic needs to address things as quickly as possible.
They beat West Ham in the FA Cup at the weekend to boost hopes things were going to improve once more but last night they slumped to a defeat at Cardiff and are now in danger of dropping out of the top two altogether in the league.
Leeds United have overtaken them after their comeback win over Millwall and Nottingham Forest are closing in, so now is the time for Bilic to earn his corn.
For many fans, then, Ahmed Hegazi is one man that might be worth dropping with many criticising him last night.
Let’s take a look at what was said about the Egyptian centre-half as Baggies fans look to see their side get their act together as soon as possible:
All I know is we were 14 points clear of the playoffs now the gap is 2. We have dropped to second.We wont make the playoffs the way we are going.Even the reinforcements that we are linked with aren't going to solve the problems.cant have johnstone hegazi Livermore hrk spine #WBA

Sam Johnstone isnt good enough – costs us goals. Forget everything else, sign a decent keeper & dont play Bartley & Hegazi together – it doesnt work! #wba

I will get slaughtered for this but Johnstone has got worse as the season has gone on.He isn’t the only one as Fergie,Sawyers & Livermore are the same.Hegazi is a fraud and I fell for it myself but he is actually not great.When is Phillips back? 2/2 #wba

Dreadful goal to concede. Long throw from the right, Hegazi and Bartley both fail to get anything it, it cannons off Bartley's arm to Morrison, his effort is saved well by Johnstone but Paterson converts the rebound. A mess. #WBA #WBAFC

Johnstone is a liability, Hegazi is getting worse, Bartley is on skates, Sawyers plays as if he’s having a kick about down the park, Edwards isn’t good enough, Phillips is absolutely horrendous and has been for months and Robson Kanu isn’t a footballer never mind a striker #wba

Hegazi should never a #wba shirt again!
