West Brom supporters react to gaping hole left by Harvey Barnes

Harvey Barnes may have been recalled from his loan spell with West Brom back in January, but a damning stat has been revealed that he’s still been the club’s most creative player three months on.

In a graph displaying the players who have created the highest proportion of high-quality shots for certain teams in the Championship this season, Barnes led the way for the Baggies on 16.451.

This stat has provoked a fair amount of response from the Hawthorns faithful who not only bemoaned the loss of the 21-year-old but picked up on the fact that other stars who have since been injured have also left a hole.

Matty Phillips’ and Kieran Gibbs’ presence was focused on by some fans, who said the former had a strong influence over the team.

Another supporter also claimed that once Barnes left, the formation should have been changed in order to counter his absence.

However, one individual thought that West Brom supporters had exaggerated his role, claiming the club were still consistent without him.

In 26 league games for the club, Barnes scored nine and assisted six goals.

Here’s the reaction from Twitter.
