Fans of West Bromwich Albion have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which the Baggies shared their appreciation for the club’s left-back, Conor Townsend.
So far this season, Townsend has performed impressively over his 17 appearances in Sam Allardyce’s backline, with the 28-year-old making an average of 1.5 tackles, 1.6 interceptions and 2.1 clearances per game, culminating in an average WhoScored match rating of 6.77 – ranking him as the club’s sixth-best player in the top flight.
Seemingly in reaction to these admirable displays, the West Brom Twitter account shared an image of Townsend in action for the club, captioning the picture: “Conor Townsend appreciation post.”
And, in response to the club’s post, fans of West Brom flocked to have their say on the matter, with many heaping a considerable amount of praise on the defender, with some dubbing him as the Baggies’ most improved player this season, while others picked out their favourite Townsend moments of the season.
Do you think Allardyce has made Townsend a better player?
So, what exactly did these West Bromwich Albion fans have to say in reaction to the club’s Conor Townsend tweet?
“That backheel vs Chelsea was the greatest thing ever.”
“Probably my favourite current player! Fantastic on the pitch and has really bought into the ethos of our club and the family feel it has, I love how involved he is with the Albion Foundation too.”
“Most improved player, 100%. An example to the better-known players with appetite and application on point, no matter who we are playing. Love him, keep up the great work Conor.”
“Playing out of his skin.”
“That backheel was absolute filth!”
“Saw a bit of Derek Statham in Conor this week. Much improved player, going to be a star.”
