Have some patience. We'll have a much wider choice of managers at the end of the season. No need to just rush someone in for the sake of it. And yes, Moore and his mate did have to go, even if we had no-one else lined up.

Do you really believe that?  ::)
We'll have the choice of a couple of out of work journeymen managers so that we don't have to pay compensation to and we can pay the minimum wage required.
Expect to be underwhelmed with the new bloke as well.

Its going to be a bit of a lottery.
We are capable of being awful and wonderful in equal measures in a hares breath.
I'd fancy us against Boro in the semi's then SOTV in the final.

I wonder if this manager shennanigans has had any effect on the earlybird season ticket sales.
I haven't renewed mine yet, but then again I always make them wait until the last possible minute for the money.

Not an easy game, Monk has them well organised, and they have goals in the team.

All sounds quite amateurish to me.

200 million pound
Think about that.....

How many of us will ever have access to that,how many will have that much disposable so we can buy a football team?
I love my club,I genuinely believe we have one of the best and funniest sets of fans...I used to believe that we also had a good general understanding of where we were,who we are and where we came from...
It’s not exclusive to us,but how easy is it to call someone a tight arse for not shelling out 15mill on a player (plus wages over a 5 year contract),sometimes it’s all to easy to sit and tell the owner what he should/shouldn’t be doing with his money because we contributed £339 in 2015 and purchased two bobbly hats

and a replica shirt  8)

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Promotion - or redundancy

Really funny you should mention this.

A colleague at work today told me he has a very good friend who works at WBA [on a daily basis]. Over the past couple of weeks there has been a middle management restructure and 6 have been shown the door. We have apparently hired a chap from Leicester who has orchestrated the restructure. He also said what we already suspect - that Darren was give the boot because he had lost the dressing room, and that the chinese owners intend to sell the club if/when we return to the PL.

I am always suspicious of 'Johnny the shoe shine' news, and it doesnt take a rocket scientist to work out the latter, but the fact that there appears to be a restructuring going on within the club is interesting.

Its actual interesting to hear there is any sort of structure at all

Few rumours floating about that Steven Reid could be coming in as the 'extra pair of hands' for Shan.

I can see it being someone in the mould of Reid or even Kevin Phillips. As opposed to Shakespeare/Appleton coming in and probably feeling though they should be in charge.

I thought he was with Roy at Palace

Considering that we don't know too much about what has happened (and what is now happening) at the club there seems to be some emotive language and harsh judgements flying about.

Shambles?
Really? I would reserve that for the time when WBA have such a run of results (and zero morale) as we suffered when the dad dancing charlatan was in charge.

Lack of progress in signing a new manager?
Although WBA have not achieved this objective, can anybody confirm who has been approached and what was their response, as all the so-called ITK clickbait journo's seem clueless and/or contradictory?  If not all this talk about cheap options and incompetence is mere uninformed speculation. I have not seen one syllable about Shan's future within the club after his caretaker role, but he is being promoted (negatively) as a long term appointee or alternatively being flung out on his ear.

Crisis?
When we face a 12 point deduction for FFP failures, or the players haven't been paid or the club faces administration, I will agree with the use of the word. Until then I will allow myself to be disappointed with the unfolding saga - nothing more.

You remind me of a bloke from way way back.
His name was Nero, I believe he was a bit of a violin player.

For me, that's made up my mind that I don't want Jokanovic as our manager.

I want someone who wants to be our manager, who wants to manage the club, not someone who's probably outpriced himself and only interested/affordable if we get promoted.

No thanks, Next.

I wouldn't imagine all the blame is with Jokanovic, the way we perform over negotiations I wonder anyone is interested.
If he can't get £30k a week here then perhaps he's waiting for a job to come along that will pay him that much.
You can't blame the bloke.

John Percy, just reported that it looks like Shan until the end of the season with the club revisiting Jokanovic in the Summer.

I can smell the cheap from here  >:(

I've just seen our milkman by the ground as well but I doubt if he'll get the job.
Oh hang on a minute though!

I really do not understand it and it worries me that so many of our fans are like this.

Its all about opinions.
The fans who are shouting Shan's praises may not like your prefered candidate.
Who's right and who's wrong?

I think this appointment needs to be the 'hit the ground running' and play the 'pragmatic' way.  Its about results now.  Nothing more.  The players we currently have cannot play the way DM wanted to.  That was clear to see.

I'd go for Pearson and Shakespeare or Moyes with a view to getting us promoted.  If we do go up then they will be better suited to keeping us there.

If we fail to get promoted then appoint the likes of Neil, Monk or Jokanovic and get rid of the old guard and rebuild the team with a new style of play.

I'd give them the gig for the rest of this season plus next season as well.
We weren't considered good enough for Moyes a few years ago when his stock was high. if he gets the job here we will only be a stepping stone until something better comes along.
Plus he's a sweaty sock  8)

If they are considering bringing either of those two in to support Shan, then forget it! give SGM a call ,been there, seen that, done that.
Jenkins of course will not do that , not savvy enough.
I do understand the issue of not knowing which division we will be in next season, and the effect on the permanent position, and I am not suggesting Gary come back in that role , but if they are seriously considering Shakey or Appleton , then frankly they are not fit to lace SGM's boots

which begs the question why didn't they leave Darren Moore in position until the end of the season?

Shakespeare wouldn't be the manager though , he'd be a help to Shan I'd imagine .
Suspect it's the same old thing with SJ , money !

Another twist in our saga.
Shakey and Appleton?
It's a no from me  :(

Stopped listening about a year ago general dirge and full of know it alls like Alan the vile fan is he still around?

The problem is that I think the producers realise that these people are nuts but listeners like to hear them make prats of themselves. Bit like X Factor.

Yes, Alan is still around.
Never forget the time the vile drew Bradford in the semi final of the League Cup and that to$$er was that cock sure of the mighty vile winning he booked (and paid for his hotel) for the final.
Guess what?  :D

I used to prefer listening to Tom Ross’s phone in when he was on Xtra Am/Gold/Free etc

I used to like Rossie too.
I listen to WM, usually on the way home in the car.
Got to say I do like listening to the various views, I've been listening to it for some time now so I like to think that I can pull the wheat from the chaff.
As someone said they are very selective on the ones they let on air.
It's a mixture of balanced and extreme views, but hey it's entertainment.
Same as this board really if everybody agreed all the time there would be no point in it's existence.

We were 11 points behind the unwashed in 2002 at this same stage of the season (Mid March).
We then won 8 of the last 10 games and drew 2.
A similar feet is required again to stand any chance of automatic, plus we could do with a few hic-cups from the teams above

This thread is very quiet. Wonder what it would have been like if it was ISIS storming a church and killing 50.

I think every decent person from whatever religion would condemn this type of attack regardless of background.
To insinuate anything else is pointless and disrespectful to all posters on this site

« on: March 17, 2019, 03:49:09 PM »
While he hasn't set the world on fire, he's shown me enough to see he is a good player to have in the Championship. He's scored a couple and was unlucky not to get another 1, possibly 2 against Ipswich.

Personally I don't think he's cut out for the rough and tumble of the Championship,seems a bit light weight for whatever division he plays in.
Not keen on 50 50 balls at all is he, and tends to pull out of challenges

« on: March 16, 2019, 08:13:15 PM »
Always supported Darren Moore even though I never thought he should have been anywhere near the job to start with.
He had to go, and if he was still here would Edwards have started today.
Very brave decision to start with him today, he could also see it was time to give Harper a rest and drop Livermore.
I don't say that Shan is the right man for the job long term but he's the right man for now.
