Without any question our player of the decade and a true club legend.

The former Northern Ireland international has been at the club since 2007, and for the majority of the 2010s, Brunt was a key player in West Brom’s spells both in the Championship as well as in the Premier League, with stats from The Birmingham Mail showing that the veteran attacker managed the 10th most assists this decade in the English top-flight.
Do West Brom need to spend in January?
Yes, the squad needs that extra something
No, we're sorted for now

Southampton has to be for me. But those pens against Liverpool were great. Also those crackers against Everton, Wolves and the Villa. What a footballer and professional more importantly. Always given his all for us whenever he has played

Supporters will be hoping Brunt can once again be influential to the squad this season with West Brom eyeing Premier League promotion.
