West Brom fans have had the joy of cheering on some very talented players over the years, and one those players is the impressive Robert Earnshaw, the Welsh striker who bagged 14 goals in 47 games for them (Transfermarkt) in his season and a half with the club between summer 2004 and January 2006.

The Baggies don’t have to look back to some of their former players to find some talented goalscorers and fan favourites, though. The current crop of players at The Hawthorns have got their side top of the Championship and have only been outscored by Preston, so things are going well.
However, West Brom have still got a lot of games left this season and it won’t be easy for them to maintain their spot at the top of the table. However, if they do manage it then there’s no doubt some of their current crop of players will go down in memory the same way Earnshaw has.
Will Slav guide West Brom back to the Premier League?

The Baggies will be keen to see some of their stars go down the same way that Earnshaw did, and they can easily do that should they go up.
