West Bromwich Albion: Fans have mixed views on Charlie Austin

West Bromwich Albion: Fans have mixed views on Charlie Austin - West Brom

A question on Twitter about Charlie Austin has prompted polarised opinions from some West Brom supporters.

Albion fan page @BaggiesHQ asked followers whether the 30-year-old would be the team’s main striker next season if they are in the Premier League, sparking a debate about the ex-Southampton man.

A £4m signing from the Saints last August, Austin has scored nine goals for West Brom this season, making him their second highest scorer behind Hal Robson-Kanu. He has been particularly effective as an impact substitute, coming off the bench to score decisive goals against Sheffield Wednesday, Preston and Birmingham during a rich spell in the run-up to Christmas (as per WhoScored).

However, he has only scored once since mid-December and not even that flurry of goals towards the end of 2019 could earn him a regular starting spot in Slaven Bilic’s side – Austin has started only three Championship games since the November international break (as per WhoScored).

Will Charlie Austin play much next season if Albion are in the Premier League?

These West Brom fans had a mixture of opinions on whether the 30-year-old would lead the line regularly for the Baggies if they are a top-flight club next term:
