After the news emerged recently that West Brom have signed Everton’s Mason Holgate on loan for the rest of the season, we discussed what that meant for The Baggies’ chances in the Championship.
Darren Moore’s men are currently in fourth place in the league, nipping at the heels of leaders Leeds and Norwich, but do have some areas in which they need to improve on. Their current centre-backs have come under some criticism so far this season for being particularly immobile and poor with the ball at their feet. Holgate will alleviate these problems, and could seriously boost the club’s chances of clinching the title.
With that in mind, we asked whether Holgate will make West Brom Championship winners, and these were the results:
West Brom fans may have been confident of their club winning the Championship (or at least getting promotion) before the news regarding Holgate emerged, but this is surely the final piece in the jigsaw for them. A huge 81% of fans think that their club will win the Championship with the signing of the 22-year-old, which is indicative of where the club are currently, and how confident the fans are.
