    Unless they're convinced they have something better in mind, I don't see this as a bright move by the normally pretty astute West Brom board

    Mmmm just depends who they have in mind/are able to get in. Hardy all that many inspiring choices out there, if I were them I would give the ex Northampton manager now at Sheffield United a call, smashed 2 different leagues and seriously exceeding expectations in ours!

    I thought this was a strange one as he would be the man to have in a relegation fight.

    The fans absolutely hate him. They’ve taken 12 points from their last 21 league games and have won once at home in eight months. He’s got them in to a relegation fight with his anti-football style. As at Stoke the fans and players just get bored by it.

    He kept Stoke up for years and also kept up West Brom, Palace where he won manager of the year. His football maybe crap but manages to keep teams in the Prem. Maybe we should have had him to save me moaning at Hollow?

    It looks like he was on the way to taking them down this season, though there may be 3 even worse teams in the PL. I guarantee you would have moaned at Pulis too, and I would have joined you! I think fans can tolerate successful awful football for a few seasons, but when they see no progress on the playing side and avoiding relegation as the major achievement year after year they remember that they want to be entertained once in a while as well.

    He’ll be at Swansea next week, and Coleman will be kicking himself for taking the Sunderland job. Allardyce to West Brom?

    strange move when there appears to be a severe shortage of good managers out there out of work. WBA should be happy to finish top 10 ish (give or take) as not so long ago they were a yo yo club going between championship and premiership.

    Maybe their fans think there as a safer pair of hands out there

    That is my point. Would you rather be in the Championship or boring in the Mid table of the Prem? I know what I would take. Some clubs have delusions of Grandeur. :emoticon-0127-lipss Seen it many times before where a team/club are not happy with mid to low Prem so they sack manager and go down.

    Does that means Gerry Francis is available to come home and assist in some way?
