Robinson slams his West Brom team-mates for lack of passion

West Brom defender Paul Robinson has claims some of his colleagues should show more "pride and passion" as they fight to avoid the drop. The defender said: "The supporters deserve more and as players we deserve more out of each other.

"There are a few out there who need to wear the shirt with a little bit more pride and passion and commit themselves to this club a bit more.

"I would like to see a bit more passion and commitment. I think we have lacked that. I am not afraid to say it. It shouldn't bother me to say it.

"I think a few more players should stand up and come out and say it themselves, that they should be more committed to the club and they should be fighting for the cause a bit more."

Robinson added: "We shouldn't be in this position and we know we shouldn't. You can only say what you can.

"They can either take it to help them or they can take it as a criticism, but at the end of the day you are only trying to help your team-mates.

"If they take it in the wrong way then that's their problem."
