On Tuesday afternoon, West Bromwich Albion’s official Twitter account paid tribute to Hal Robson-Kanu for putting in ‘some tremendous shifts’ in recent weeks.
The 30-year-old has a record of nine goals in 28 appearances for the Baggies this season, with seven of those strikes coming in 27 Championship outings.
According to WhoScored, Robson-Kanu boasted five successful dribbles and an 85% pass success rate against Nottingham Forest last time out, though.
And a number of the West Brom fans agreed with their club’s tweet.
Everything but a goal. Top player with priceless contributions week in week out

Not all of the supporters feel the same way, though, with some referencing the fact that the attacker, who arrived at the club from Reading in 2016, has struggled to find the back of the net in recent weeks.
His job is to score goals, he’s not done that.
