He's not the most exciting appointment ever but he does at least play reasonably attacking football, takes the FA cup seriously, and is capable of doing well in the league. His downward trends in form are a concern but every manager has those really, there's a reason most of them end up getting sacked.

My major concern would be he rarely showed any inclination to using youth players before, which would be a real shame with Sam Field breaking through - he deserves his chance.

Oh F*** me....

WEST Bromwich Albion today confirm the appointment of Alan Pardew as the Club’s new Head Coach.

Alan, a former Premier League manager with West Ham, Newcastle and Crystal Palace, has agreed a two-and-a-half-year contract.
 
He will be adding his former assistant at Newcastle, John Carver, to his backroom staff at The Hawthorns.

and here was me thinking it would be just a bit of a mediocre appointment....now i'm depressed he's bought that clown with him.

Welcome Alan!

Let's start a fresh. Judge him on what he does here, have some patience and hopefully he will sort us out. Good luck Pards.

That really is worrying/disappointing.

Any news on Garner?

Just ruined my day. When it goes tits up I hope Hammond gets his marching orders as well, real small time mentality, no ambition at all.
It's easy to have faith in yourself and have discipline when you're a winner, when you're number one. What you got to have is faith and discipline when you're not a winner.

OK, here we go.

I'm positive this is the wrong move.

Welcome to the good ship Albion though.

Onward and COYB.

Not my choice, but welcome to the club Alan. Here's wishing you a great deal of success with us and a brand of football that entertains me as well as getting us the requisite points.

I know having John carver there with him is a bit of a concern but let's not moan and give the new staff a chance. Is there any word on what's happened to Garner, Francis and o Connor.

Always struck me as arrogant but that's immaterial, get us playing decent football and use the players to their full potential and he will do me.

just remember how everyone thought ranieri was a rubbish appointment when he was announced by Leicester. Let's give him a chance, get behind him and judge him on his results and not his past.

Welcome Alan.

You've immediately made an impression on me by stating you are joining one of "the great, traditional clubs of English football".

That is what I want. Instead of playing the little old Albion card all the time I want to see the realisation that this club was a very big club and can be again. Ambition has been lacking for decades it's about time we got it back.

Good luck Alan and team.

Come on you Baggies!

The board wanted somebody who knows the league , Pardew needed a vehicle to get back in the game with a view to redeeming himself after Palace went wrong .
Lets be honest he'll be looking to impress a bigger club too but we'll benefit in the short term if he does.
Not my choice but he starts with a clean slate as WBA manager not whats gone on elsewhere.
Welcome Alan and good luck.

Don't understand the slagging off of Carver, the guys one of the most experience number 2s in the league. Granted he's a shocking head coach but that's not the job he's been given is it?

Chins up now, were going to see some good football and try and win games again, That's what we all wanted and that's what were getting. Welcome to the club Alan, all the real fans will give you a fresh chance and are behind you!

Love the way the negatives around seem quick to jump on  John Carver being Pardews muppet.

Correct me if I'm wrong they have worked together once in Pardews managerial history.  I'm guessing Pardew must have been impressed enough to want to do so again.

Would people prefer he just totally gambles on people he has never worked with?

I would settle for the majority of the pardew/carver record at newcastle

Welcome Alan and good luck.


FFS who? Man United? Liverpool, Arsenal? Man City?

He's not going to get any of those jobs and other than nine or ten clubs Albion are as big as it gets in England.

Lets stop this small time mentality please. If fans talk us down what do they expect from everyone else?

Clean slate for Mr Pardew. Lets all unite and behind the club properly.
