West Brom: Fans blast Romaine Sawyers versus Leeds United

West Brom: Fans blast Romaine Sawyers versus Leeds United - West Bromwich Albion News

Some West Brom fans were left blasting the display of Romaine Sawyers in his club’s 5-0 home loss to Leeds United in the Premier League.

The 29-year-old played a quite comical back pass to Sam Johnstone which ended up in the back of his own net to put Marcelo Bielsa’s team 1-0 up, and that set the tone for the rest of the game.

Should Sawyers start for West Brom?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Aside from the own goal, he was very poor in the match in general, racking up a pretty low 5.3 overall rating on Sofascore, the second-worst rating out of any player to have set foot on the field.

The defensive midfield player lost out on four of his duels in the clash, and also failed to make a single interception, while losing possession of the ball no fewer than 12 times (Sofascore) in what was a rather dismal evening for both him and his teammates.

West Brom fan reaction to Sawyers display

These members of the Hawthorns faithful blasted the performance of the Nevisian international on Twitter, with one Baggie even describing him as ‘clueless’:

“Give Sawyers credit…the most clueless midfielder in the PL!!! #WBALEE”

“I was quite optimistic before the game tonight. Then Sawyers decided to destroy all the momentum we’d taken away from Anfield in a moment which sums him up this season. #WBALEE”
“#WBALEE #WBA I dislike Ivanovic intensely and actually think we will be more vulnerable defensively with a geriatric who can’t move rather than Matt Phillips. How are Sawyers & Grant still on the pitch? No Pereira? Maybe Allardyce really does hate us?”
“Another attempt on goal by Sawyers there, but straight to Johnstone, needs to be better #WBALEE”
“I don’t care if taking Sawyers off knocks his confidence, already playing as if he has none. He doesn’t deserve to be in the starting line up… he’s set the tone for the whole game IMO #WBA #WBALEE”

“I’ve had stick about my lack of faith in Sawyers but that was beyond amateur!! #WBALEE”
