Delighted for the Big Man, he is just one of those blokes you cant help but like.

I said previously as much as a like him, i had no idea what he was like as a coach or manager, well if yesterday is anything to go by, he is bloody good at it!

The only thing may be if he does well between now and the end of the season as the main man, and somebody elses gets the job, would he want to move back to Assistant or first team coach? I think he is quoted as saying he wanted to be a manager a couple of years ago but wasnt ready at the time, after a year as first team coach and now six games as a premier league manager, if he does okay i wonder if he will fancy a crack at being the main man, even if its not at the Albion.

As somebody said above, he has restored a bit of pride, we looked like a team yesterday and after enjoying the win, i then started to think, why havent we done that all season!

It also raised the dreaded 'what if' question! Maximum we can finish with would be 36 points in the unlikely event we won every game between now and the end of the season. There are 7 clubs above us who have less than 36 points but they all will pick up points and have games in hand.

However i cant be arsed to work it out, i read earlier there is only Swansea we could actually catch so if thats correct i assume a lot of clubs down there are playing each other between now and end of the season so therefore one or both has to get points? By the way i know we are 99.9% down just curious!

It seems like an age ago now but I well remember a certain Sir Gary Megson restoring Albion's pride.

Now his captain is doing the same.

Whatever happens between now and the season's end, thank you Big Dave.

He may be a Viler at heart but he's OUR Viler and an honourary Baggie.

I've just done a predictor. We would obviously need to win all our games. Then if the rest of the bottom 8 lose all their games (draw if playing each other) we would finish 13th on 36 points with 5 teams on 35 below us and goal difference determining the last relegated team. Stoke and Southampton would be 5 and 6 points adrift respectively.


Total pie in the sky of course because if we somehow beat Liverpool we'll go and lose at Newcastle. It's been that type of season.

Generally feel Big Dave has understood our anger all Season and Thought you know what I want this team to be playing with the Same Passion and Pride that I did he brought us the fans back on Side and Not only that You have to feel he was standing on the Touchline trying to inject Passion but The Players Playing under Pardew Probably Couldn't Inject the Players or make them see or play with any

Think he should be if he carries on like this to the end of the season. I'd say so then for sure.

.... though thinking about it, we've kept asking for someone young (for management), with new ideas, that hadn't done the magic roundabout. Sounds a bit like DM.

We’ve not had much reason to this season. It certainly makes a pleasant change.

Much as I love the job he is doing in restoring our pride, I would not want him to take us into next season.
However it would be great if he stayed on in a coaching capacity as he is clearly gifted. I think we all want a clean sweep but it is preferable to have a new manager with some experience in my opinion.

We can still finish above: Swansea, Palace, Huddersfield, Brighton, West Ham, Saints and Stoke.
I make it that we could still finish 13th on 36 points.
Not many games between the bottom 8.
After last night's draw, we can still finish above both Stoke and West Ham!

Having moved on most of the senior figures on the board, we also moved out the majority of our support & communications network.

IMO it would be an impossible job for Darren Moore (or any other coach for that matter) without the support behind them. I'm hoping we get a stellar DoF, who would be capable of mentoring our next head coach. Under those circumstances, I think it would be worth giving Darren a go.

Haha don't we all wish. I've done the permutations too since, I must be mental.

Swansea Stoke Southampton would be an absolute dream come true. But they've all got to do pretty crap (genuinely some tough fixtures for them all) while we win each and every single one.

Once Liverpool put three past us on Saturday, we can check back in to reality.

Brighton are the ones to watch. Awful run in.


As you say though a spanking on Saturday and it makes no odds...

Brighton pretty much out of range now, would take 4 wins and a 10 goal swing.
Huddersfield have Chelsea, Everton, Man City and Arsenal left, with a worse goal difference though, so are there for the taking. ;)
Win Saturday and we'll all start to believe.
Hallelujah.

I'd not looked at Huddersfield's fixtures. Blimey.

Mid afternoon Saturday will be a very different climate on here one way or another....

Not me mate, I refuse to believe as I don't want the disappointment! IF we go into the Palace game needing a win to stay up then I shall allow myself to believe and then should we lose I'll just be pleased we managed to get ourselves into a position where we could have stayed up.

Lol. Yep, not a chance in hell we stay up from this position.

I actually like the fact that fans have some sort of optimism and hope again though. It sure beats that "dead" feeling everyone obviously had at the Swansea game.
