Loads of West Brom fans have been running the rule over their FA Cup exit at the hands of Brighton, and they’re extremely impressed by debutant Morgan Rogers.
West Brom were knocked out of the FA Cup by Brighton on Wednesday night, and it’s safe to say fans weren’t too happy with Darren Moore.
The boss has taken stick for his substitutions and game management on several occasions this season, and the Baggies were forced to play extra time with just ten men as Hal Robson-Kanu picked up an injury after Moore had used all three substitutions.

While the manager’s decisions have come under fire though, fans are pretty happy with the performance of the youngsters, as the likes of Rogers and Rekeem Harper shone in the Baggies’ rotated XI.
Harper looked exhausted by the final whistle, having started the match, but Rogers showed some serious promise in his short cameo, replacing Wes Hoolahan with ten minutes left in normal time.
The 16 year-old was unlucky not to grab a debut goal when he couldn’t quite get his head to a mis-hit shot, and his overall impact on the game was very positive.
Loads of fans have been discussing his performance, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…

Cracking player. Need to see more of him on the field. You’re old enough if you’re good enough.

Rogers seemed to glide across the pitch. Looks a real prospect and good on DM for throwing him in.
