West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Promotion - or redundancy
« Last post by zippyandbungle on Yesterday at 08:06:27 PM »
This seems feasible unless you factor in the rumour that Jones had already agreed to go to Luton, because, if this were true, Moore would have been looking for a new assistant come May anyway so the loyalty would have been futile.
Unless
Jones wanted to go to Luton, spoke to Moore
Moore asked him to stay till end of season , he said because its you Darren I will, but only for you
In return Darren wants to reciprocate the loyalty so when asked questions about Jones style and methods, shows extreme displeasure and politely tells the club if he goes then so do I

Board make a decision

Your lucky I'm still having nightmares from that weds night in April 1981.
Thanks. I was there and had managed to erase it with steady amounts of alcohol. ☺️

Same for me. Losing to anyone but them wouldn’t feel so bad. I still haven’t got over that nightmare week not so long ago.

It would be interesting to know actually how many members we have on the database? I was reading an article where it stated Wolves have around 28,000 members. Would assume our numbers would be similar?

They will have a lot more members then that I’d have thought mate. Theve sold 22500 season tickets this year with a waiting list for season tickets.

On the contrary. This interview sounds as though he knows what he’s doing, and he doesn’t need further staff to muddy the waters. May I also add, it’s good to read a pre match interview with so few cliches. COYB.

I've no doubt he does know what he's doing, but he needs to get the Directors onside as well as the players & staff, especially Luke Dowling.

Us and the scum from Witton in the final is something that puts the fear of god into me.

I am in a quandary here. Working on Friday night in York so my only way of getting match action is this commentary. However, I have a self imposed ban on listening to the station due to the racism claims. Haven’t decided what to do yet.
I admire your stance, but in this case, you should exploit the station when you can, but by all means, ignore all adverts and phone ins. In short, only ever listen to Baggies commentaries. ☺️

James Shan happy with his team for this week.

I'm a big fan of James Shan, & I think he has the capacity to get us promoted, but this concerns me a bit, it demonstrates political naivety.
Think I might have taken up the offer of help, by not doing so, he's put enormous pressure on himself to deliver.

I'm hardly ever underwhelmed any more, because I never expect too much.

Of course I believe that there will be more choice of managers at the end of the season. I don't have the statistics but I'm pretty sure that more managers are between jobs after the end of the season than they are in February and the following couple of months. Look at the likes of Garry Monk (just the first example that came to mind). Pretty sure the likes of him would be looking for a job with better prospects and would feel more comfortable doing it at seasons end, instead of doing the dirty on a club part way through a season. There will be many managers looking for fresh opportunities etc etc.

Don't want to get in the way of your bashing session of the board though, so please continue as you were :)

Potentially, as things stand,the club is looking at 2 Job Descriptions - one for an EPL Manager & one for an EFL Manager.
I agree with you, there are loads of Managers who would jump at the chance to manage an EPL club.
IMO there would be less demand for an EFL position, but still enough to give us a good choice.
