Gnabry left Arsenal over the summer on a season-long loan, agreeing a switch to West Brom to continue his development with consistent first-team football.
An extremely talented 20-year-old, many believe Gnabry has all the skills to go all the way in the game, with pace, power and technical aptitude making him the perfect winger.
This loan spell was to let Gnabry play consistently in the Premier League, with Tony Pulis always playing a team with wingers. It looked to be the perfect move for the youngster, but so far his career with the Baggies has not gone the way it was supposed to.
He has played just three games, making it onto the field in the Premier League for just 12 minutes, and the winger was recently kicked out of the senior squad by Pulis to take part in Under-21 action with the Baggies.
He featured for 85 minutes on Monday afternoon playing for the Under-21s, registering two assists in a 2-0 victory over Stoke City which placed the Baggies atop the Under-21 Premier League division two table.
This performance had many Arsenal fans up in arms against Pulis and West Brom, claiming that Gnabry should be in the first-team. Following the game, Gunners’ fans took to Twitter to ask why Gnabry had been loaned out in the first place if he was only going to play in the Under-21 side for West Brom.
Why is Gnabry bossing it for WBA's u-21s? Surely he could be doing that for ours! He'd make our bench with current injuries, too.— Kev (@GarrulousGooner) October 19, 2015
Serge Gnabry played today for west brom's U21 side.... This is not why Wenger sent him on loan— GoonerGeneration (@Gooner_Gen) October 19, 2015
Wonder if Arsenal will call Gnabry back soon. Who would ever loan an attacking flair player to Pulis in the first place. #wba— Lowe (@Lowewba) October 19, 2015
I'd rather have Gnabry on the bench than Joel Campbell but Serge is off in the West Brom reserves. Ok.— James (@jamesafcn) October 19, 2015
Gnabry would get near our bench at the moment with Welbeck and Wilshere out.— K (@GoonerBBK) October 19, 2015
Why is gnabry playing for west broms u21 team ffs— Daniel Hughes (@hughesdan97) October 19, 2015
Gnabry would've atleast played the League Cup for us. Pulis ruining a talent bcz they he needs players running & blindly crossing the ball— Akshay Ravi (@akshayravi14) October 19, 2015
I swear Gnabry probably would've had more game time staying with us this season. Completely wasted a year of his development at West Brom.— JT. (@JTArsenal) October 19, 2015
Let's recall Gnabry. What's this nonsense? https://t.co/yI0FAL7Wi5— Igbafe Onuwa (@omomo14) October 19, 2015
We loaned out Gnabry to play for the 2nd place team in the U21 Premier League Second Division. We're 1st place. :| https://t.co/OpitwA8ZR5— Doug Nichols (@TheTXI) October 19, 2015
So Gnabry is now playing in the West Brom u21s. What a waste. Why we would ever trust Pulis with one of our assets is beyond me.— Arsenal Abroad (@ArsenalAbroad) October 19, 2015
