West Bromwich Albion are in desperate need of reinforcements, with the Baggies in serious trouble towards the foot of the Premier League table this season.
New boss Alan Pardew has so far failed to halt the tide of bad results, and the Baggies lie two points from safety heading into the second half of the campaign. Fans here in The Transfer Tavern are growing increasingly concerned for their side’s top flight future, and told our landlord in the booth by the jukebox that they are desperate to see Pardew given funds this month to ensure they survive the drop this term. A new forward is certainly required, with the Baggies having scored just eighteen goals this season, and a failure to address this issue will result in their demotion. Fans want an in-form man who will hit the ground running, but affordability will also be keen in their pursuit.
Our landlord had a think, and couldn’t help but suggest a move for Ipswich Town man, Martyn Waghorn. Although the former Sunderland trainee may not be the big name fans desire, he could be the perfect player to drag the club from their current predicament. Joining from Rangers just last summer, manager Mick McCarthy was mocked for the signature by rival fans, but Waghorn has silenced his critics, with a phenomenal ten goals and seven assists as we pass the halfway stage of the second tier season. A remarkable record, Waghorn has contributed the second most goals in the division behind Derby County’s Matej Vydra, and should be considered one of the most productive players in the Football League this term.
Pardew needs in-form players able to make an immediate impact on his squad, and could certainly find this in the impressive 27-year-old.
