Troy Deeney is a scary man. He strikes fear into opposition forwards and even has the history of a jail term(literally). Here we meant, the fear in a footballing sense. The type of fear a proper striker can strike into center backs. He gets into dangerous positions and scores goals for his team. Deeney provides everything in the field for the team. How can we forget Liverpool’s loss against Watford last season?
Currently, the scary man is 32, and his team relinquishing in the Championship after their relegation from the Premier League last season. For a relegated Watford, their captain’s stats are impressive.
Troy Deeney managed to wrap up ten goals and two assists in 27 appearances and has a shooting accuracy of 51%. He is a typical poacher and will pounce with all his strength and physicality when the chance comes. He is someone who can lift the team and salvage something out of nothing. Let’s not forget that the Englishman reached double figures three times in the past five campaigns.
So how can Deeney improve a premier league club? We know he can’t be a guaranteed starter, but is an excellent addition to any teams cavalry. He can add the extra firepower to the bench. Someone who can come on at the last minute and win a header to grab you the three points or at least a draw.
At 32 years of age, he is approaching the twilight of his career, and a move now might be the only chance to play in the top flight again. He has over 100 goals for the Hornets, and he will be an excellent short term solution for a newly promoted team to survive in the Premier League. Leeds is good enough as it seems, and Fulham has Mitrovic. So as we have seen in the latest rumors, West Brom is looking at Troy Deeney as an option.
We say West Brom should go for Troy Deeney. Excellent for both the player and the club.
