West Brom were defeated by Newcastle United today, as the resurgence from the Toon Army goes on. For The Baggies however it was not the best of performances.
They struggled all over the park, failing to get a hold of the ball and never truly challenging the Newcastle goal. They were also patchy at the back, with one man not having his best day at the office.
Andre Wisdom is currently on loan at West Brom from Liverpool, following up a successful spell at Derby County in the Championship last season.
The English youngster is highly thought of at Liverpool but based on this performance, he does not look up to the grade.
He certainly has his strengths but it is still odd to see him playing at full-back. He seems far more suited to playing in the heart of defence rather than at full-back - his attributes certainly lend themselves better to that position.
Today he ended up at left-back, struggling out there as well. He even had a chance at goal, but he thrashed the ball high, wide and not very handsome on the half volley.
It summed up his performance, full of promise but overall just not very polished.
And Liverpool fans among others were not entirely impressed with his distinctly average showing...
Mistake from Wisdom there. He'll never get in Liverpool's team with slack defending like thahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa!!!— Graham (@_GS87) November 9, 2014
The only chance wisdom has of making it at liverpool is if he plays cb even though I'm pretty sure he's never even played there before— sign a DM (@olwiso) November 9, 2014
Hope Liverpool actually give Wisdom a chance next season and don't sell him!— Joe (@JoeJarvisss) November 9, 2014
I think Wisdom might be the worst PL player I've ever seen. You can tell he's on loan from Liverpool.— Stephen J. Miller (@SteJamesMiller) November 9, 2014
