Absolute farce. 5 weeks to appoint a man who hasn't worked in football for 3 years with his last act as manager being to relegate Wednesday. You couldn't make it up.

Not the first choice on my list. Not even on my list of candidates. Don't quite know what to say.  :o : :-X

I take it back about tim Sherwood I'd rather him than Irvine.

So so glad I waited to renew my season ticket.

After all I said earlier about JP and not making the same mistakes as before. It's probably true the other mistakes won't even be on the same level as Irvine.

Ridiculous choice and even more of a car crash than Sherwood.

Jeremy Peace and Mark Jenkins have a LOT to answer for.

Another decision based upon wages and not football.

I'm really angry. This doesn't feel like my club anymore.

What use JP's shares when we are down a league. Or even two.

I honestly feel like sitting next season out and I've never felt that before.

What Fing lesson have you learnt, Peace? I've nothing but contempt for you now you (omitted on legal advice)

So much for JP's comments that he was looking for someone better than Steve Clarke.  This is the most unexciting, underwhelming appointment.  Southampton get Koeman and what do we get...an old style nonentinty.

I wasn't keen on Sherwood and was hoping the reported other candidate in the frame would be an exciting young coach.

After 5 weeks where JP said he was looking to appoint a head coach with Premier league experience we appoint the academy coach from Everton.
This is a joke, no doubt JP will say that he is the boards first choice.

Seriously wonder what goes through Peaces head and the arsewipes who are advising him. I really hope in 12 months we all have to eat our words and I will happily but don't expect anything other than relegation next season.

Will be ringing up asking for a refund first thing Monday morning. I honestly thought this time he would get it right but yet again i should never have believed anything that came out his mouth! Pretty much gutted at the moment.

A complete and utter joke of an appointment.

Gutless idiots....its back to jobs for the boys.

The only positive is I rate Rob Kelly.

If the players didnt respect Mel they aint going to respect him.

Here is his Prem experience:

"He has also managed Preston North End, who he took to the Championship Play-offs in 2009, and Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship and League One."

What's that? Oh yes, he hasn't got any! His best "achievement" has been to get Preston into the Championship play-offs! From Wikipedia:

"Irvine was appointed manager of Sheffield Wednesday on 8 January 2010. Wednesday got off to a good start under Irvine, winning games against Barnsley, Blackpool and Peterborough United. Irvine was named Championship Manager of the month for January 2010. This form was not sustained, however, as on the last day of the season Wednesday needed a home win against Crystal Palace to avoid relegation. The match ended in a 2–2 draw, relegating Wednesday to League One.

Wednesday then had severe financial issues, with the club appearing in court twice over winding up orders. Following the successful takeover by Milan Mandaric at the end of 2010, Irvine was allowed transfer funds to revamp his squad. Despite making several new signings, the team continued to have consistently poor results. On 3 February 2011, Wednesday sacked Irvine with the side lying 12th in League One
."

Well, Mr Peace, please do tell us exactly what it is that you've learned? We're dying to know!

So, soooooo glad that I did not renew my season ticket. West Brom, you have let the fans down really badly this time. Relegates Sheffield Wednesday after being sacked by Preston, can't get another job elsewhere and then we come calling for him because he is cheap as chips. Unbelievable.

Jeremy Peace, you f****** waste of time. I was planning to watch a few games next season but I think I will stick to Rugby and non league where I feel that I am not being taken the p*** out of.

My sentiments exactly I am so angry at the club for this - I feel physically sick.

I will not be making the usual trips to The Hawthorns next season.

I thought that Pepe Mel was our worst appointment ever and the club go out of their way to prove me wrong.

Peace out!!!
