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.

West Brom in the race for Championship top scorer .
West Brom are chasing the signature of Championship top scorer Matej Vydra this summer, as per BirminghamLive. The forward’s future has been thrust into the limelight following Derby’s playoff defeat to Fulham, with many reporting Vydra will be moving away from Pride Park. With West Brom now looking to bounce straight back from Premier League relegation, signing a proven Championship goalscorer would be a good place to start. Rams chairman Mel Morris has said the club are looking to trim the wage bill over the summer, and selling their top scorer would be one way of achieving that. Vydra had a spell on loan at the Baggies back in the 2013/14 season where he scored three goals in 25 games at the Hawthorns. Fulham are the current favourites to sign the 26-year old with Aston Villa also circling, meaning West Brom will have to challenge a Premier League club for his signature.
