This Saturday, West Bromwich Albion defeated Bristol City 2-0 to extend their winning streak to six Championship games. The Baggies dealt a resounding blow to the Robins.

With those three points, West Brom has won four straight games and is eight points clear of Hull City, who are in seventh place in the top six, going into the international break. Coach Corberan’s team is confident in his team’s playoff position.

Wallace and Tom Fellows would split the goals in the victory at the Hawthorns, with Conor Townsend even making an appearance to help Wallace’s game-winning breakaway goal from the back.

Townsend is now a regular starter in the first team under the Baggies manager, but the surprising top earning at West Brom is a marginal player who makes more than twice as much as the dependable number three.

The salary of Adam Reach at West Brom

Adam Reach reportedly earns an astonishing £40,000 a week, which is surprising given his marginal role in the West Brom camp right now.

After terrible injury problems had dogged his miserable campaign, Reach made his season debut in late December. Since then, he hasn’t exactly forced his teammates to put down a marker for a regular first-team berth.


Since then, he has made an additional 11 appearances, stepping in skillfully at left defense in the last two weeks while Townsend was out due to an injury.

Regarded as “versatile” by former Sheffield Wednesday teammate Glenn Loovens, Reach played in almost every position available to him during his tenure with the Owls. Because of his ability to cover gaps, Corberan may consider keeping the seasoned 31-year-old on the team.

To further reduce the wage bill, it could be prudent to fire the former Wednesday player, given his outrageous £40k weekly salary places him above several solid players who play significantly more minutes.

Adam Reach’s salary in relation to the West Brom team

Reach leads the list by a significant margin, claiming £15k more each week than Wallace, even after the former Millwall player’s heroics against Bristol City.

The versatile West Brom player earns £7.7k more than Daryl Dike, another member of the Baggies’ roster whose high wage will start to draw criticism given his frequent attendance in the medical room.

West Brom’s top five highest earners – 2023/24
1. Adam Reach £40k per week
2. Daryl Dike £32.3k per week
3. Jed Wallace £25k per week
4. Okay Yokuslu £25k per week
5. Alex Mowatt £22.8k per week

Alright, two of the most reliable players this Championship season thus far, Alex Mowatt and Okay Yokuslu, are remarkably lower on the list of the top five incomes than Reach.

Townsend will also be furious at his pitiful £11.5k weekly wage, given how brilliantly the Baggies number three performed against Liam Manning’s visitors on Saturday while playing in Corberan’s starting lineup.

The 31-year-old returned with ease, even though he had missed his team’s first two division games.

In addition to setting up Wallace for the game’s pivotal second goal, the left-back would win five duels and record two interceptions to secure the victory and keep the clean sheet intact.
