West Bromwich Albion were once again on the losing end of a result on Saturday, this time against Arsenal, and the performance of Grady Diangana was particularly disappointing.
Sam Allardyce’s reign as manager at the Hawthorns continues to go from bad to worse. After conceding nine goals in his first three games as boss, his side shipped a further four as they were defeated 4-0 by the Gunners. Only winless Sheffield United separate them from the bottom of the Premier League, and they are now six points from safety.
£10.8m-valued Diangana (Transfermarkt) put in a poor performance. He managed a SofaScore rating of just 6.3, landing only 57% of his passes and failing to complete a single cross. The Baggies will have expected a lot more from the winger when they paid a club record-equalling £18m for his services last summer.
Has Diangana been a waste of money so far?
The club’s supporters were far from happy with his display, and they took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Diangana below
“Sawyers, Phillips, Diangana, Perreira, Grant and Gibbs let us down every week without fail. The rebuilding job gets bigger every time I watch”
“Diangana should never play for us again. Uninterested, he just stood on the wing shivering.”
“Playing O’Shea at left back against their fast wingers. I mean you don’t need to be any kind of manager to realise that’s not going to work. Sawyers, Diangana, Phillips abysmal. Unfit, no system, no application.”
“Dunno why Mark Noble was so upset when Diangana was sold the bloke is out of his depth in this league”
“Drop Phillips, Sawyers, Diangana. Unfit, Lazy & Complacent, not strong enough. Start playing Robinson and Grant on the wings, Austin up top (actually puts a shift in), Periera in the middle with Gallagher and Krov behind him. Bartley and Ajayi Centre half. #TeamOfGrafters”
“We saw it after lockdown in the Championship and this season in the Prem. When the tough gets going the majority of these players have no backbone. Threw Bilic under the bus and giving Sam nothing. Diangana, Phillips and Sawyers especially a disgrace #wba”
