It’s been a season of turmoil for West Brom. After looking like an established mid-table Premier League side, they struggled all the way through and finished last.
Tony Pulis and Alan Pardew both had terrible spells in charge of the Baggies, leaving them in a perilous position.
They had 20 points form the first 32 games of the season, with Pardew picking up eight points in his 18 games as manager.
Darren Moore gave Albion slight hope of a revival, picking up 11 points in his first five games as caretaker boss, but they ended up being relegated after eight years in the top flight.
The signings made under both Pulis and Pardew failed to allow Albion to push on, and that is just one factor in their downfall.
We’ve decided to grade their signings this season from A-F to see how much they have contributed to the downfall of the Midland’s club.
Jay Rodriguez - B
Rodriguez finished as the club’s top scorer and one of the more impressive players from a forgetful season.
Ahmed Hegazi - B
A string of good performances saw them make this deal permanent halfway through the season and he is now a near certainty to start every games.
Gareth Barry - F
Signed as experience to help the side reach the top half, he has been underwhelming to say the least.
Oliver Burke - D
A hefty fee made fans believe he could be a revelation in the Premier League. Instead, after just two starts, his potential looks to be overhyped.
Kieran Gibbs - C
One of Albion’s better players but another brought in to push the club on not regress it.
Grzegorz Krychowiak - C
Many thought this could be one of the signings of the season but instead turned out to be another that largely disappointed.
Ali Gabr - F
The Egyptian failed to make an appearance after signing on loan so his talent was definitely overrated.
Daniel Sturridge - F
Was hoping to reignite career with loan spell here but instead struggled with injuries and reminded everyone of his fall from grace since his time under Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.
