Bilić on Championship ambitions and Albion traditions

Slaven Bilić has made it clear he is relishing his first crack at a competition he describes as “the essence of football".

The 50-year-old Croatian was confirmed as Albion's new Head Coach on Thursday and, despite a career which has taken him all over Europe and to two European Championships at both club and international level, the season approaching will be his first taste of the Championship.

It is a division which he says has long fascinated him - “my friends will tell you it has been on my bucket list” - and the chance to take it on with the Baggies was hugely appealing.

Bilić said: “First of all, my friends know, and my fellow coaches know, not just here in Croatia but throughout Europe, that the Championship was always a competition that was on my bucket list.

“This is a common view and not just with me, I assure you. This is a view held by many coaches all over Europe.

“It is like the real essence of football; it is a proper league and when I get the chance to manage one of the strongest clubs in this division, it was an easy decision to make.

“I’ve played in England, I’ve managed in England. I know the club, I know West Bromwich Albion and its history, its traditions. I know their story.”

I'm hoping he means Goran has told him all about us  :P 8) Welcome Slav, bring it on!

Time to just take a breath and get ready for the second half. Was getting ready to boil over and I'm not sure who would go first!

Mings on a yellow needs someone running at him to draw a foul or 2

Need someone stronger than Murphy on, he's getting brushed off the ball.

Smith an Terry are giving the assistant ref plenty of verbals

One of them needs to go to the stands, fed up of seeing Smiths whining  face

Not out of it, I guess we get a different ref on Tuesday? Sky and the press are pushing for their cream 'Chelsea old boy' Wembley date with Derby and Villa.....

I guess we might go with Philips up front but who comes into the midfield? Harper I guess?

I'll take that, Villa fans starting get get frustrated as predicted above (sorry can't remember who said that).

Just got to keep an eye on the number of bookings we're collecting

Mistake by the villa, Gayle goal. Very similar to all of those we conceded earlier in the season!

Cracking tackle there by Jrod on Grealish
