Was about to post this link. Puts to bed that Darren is in any way thick. Also interesting to note he doesn't mention Jones by name at all.

The fans who called him thick are the thick ones.

Gave the club back it's heart, gave the fans some pride, and even in perceived failure has provided a solid base from which to appoint a manager with the prestige of Bilic. 

The period in which Barnes hit his best form and linked with Gayle (and Hegazi started doing Cruyff turns in his own box) was some of the most entertaining football i have seen at the Albion. That might sound like hyperbole but i missed the Albion team who so enthralled with Cyrille and Laurie etc and was bought up on some pretty shoddy fare which was only alleviated by SGM.  The capped wonders diabolical brand of football almost killed the Albion fan in me and it took Darren Moore to apply the resuscitation by at least attempting to do things the right way, so for that i will always be grateful.   

The only real pity for me, and this was always my concern when he got the job, is that it is unlikely he will return to the Hawthorns again in a professional capacity unless coaching/managing the opposition.  There aren't many like him in football, and for what he may have lacked in the detail as a manger, he bought the other good stuff in buckets.

I wish him all the success.

I'd believe what I saw and heard in his interviews over a prepared article that I imagine he was not the only contributor to...

Lovely bloke, but painfully out of his depth.

Have to agree with that.  When I was reading article it didn't seem like it was written by him at all.  Heavily edited perhaps?

Loved him as a player and will always have fond memories of him but I'm not sure top level management is for him.  Would have loved for him to stay with our set up.   I don't blame him for having a go at the top job but he shouldn't have been offered it in the first place.

...insightful.

Anyone who believes that Darren has sat down on his own and typed that without it being edited by another person is frankly deluded.

Of course it's been edited, he's not judged on his ability to write good prose and the English GCSE probably doesn't feature heavily on his CV.  Intelligence comes in many forms and in the piece he comes across as thoughtful and well-balanced.

A lot of the negative reaction came from post match, however, I have heard manager after manager spout cliche so did not really judge him on those interviews, flawed as they may have been.  They followed a standard football manager template of saying nothing but keeping the journo's in copy however mundane.  What i don't remember though is hearing any utter bull spouted by him, and i'll take that.

I dunno about not spouting bull. When questioned as to why he was insisting they play it out from the back even though the players weren't capable and this error of his was costing us numerous goals and points he said he wanted to continue on and it would be worth the pain! Nice one DM.

He was as one dimensional as Pulis and reeled out the same awful soundbites after every game. Only difference why DM got such a free ride is our fanbase like DM and couldn't care less for Pulis.

Lincoln City boss Danny Cowley and former West Brom manager Darren Moore are favourites to take charge of Derby County if Frank Lampard leaves for Chelsea.

Good luck Darren, he’s 7/1 to be the next Derby Country Manager

Nice bloke but never be a football manager.

Anyone who takes off a centre forward for a centre half in a cup tie, and then uses all his subs before extra time has no business in football. Never seen anything as daft in all my years.
It's only because he played for Albion that people feel the need to make excuses or him.

It's due to the board appointing a pure novice that we  are where we are now. A bloody clown could see what was going to happen. Surprised he lasted until March, Barnes got him out of jail a few times particularly at hillsborough when he took the two strikers off again when we were 2-0 down.
I get so so angry when people keep mentioning him. He was like Don Howe, iconic player for us but a terrible manager. But Don Howe had got a footballing brain and knowledge of the game, his mistake was trying to turn a free flowing attacking side into a defensive one.

Darren Moore? Might as well have given the job to a Moth.

Hope he does well, but another club he played at - did that influence their decision when appointing him?

To be a good manager you have to come over well to both the public and the players. You have to have personality. Ron Atkinson had it in abundance, though i didn't like the bloke. Clough had it, Shankly had it. It rubs off on the team, it's infectious.
When Darren gave interviews i found it very embarrassing on his behalf, you could see him struggling to put a sentence together and kept falling back on old cliches. This isn't the sort of man to motivate a team.
He had not touchline presence or passion either. We may as well have put a goldfish in a bowl on the touchline.

Far too harsh, very rude and disrespectful in fact. Whatever his shortcomings he doesn’t deserve comments like that. He was a great player for us and when he became manager he restored pride and was about 3 or 4 points short of pulling off the greatest of great escapes. He may have been a bit out of his depth last year but he kept us in the play off positions and we witnessed attacking, exciting football. It’s the board who threw him in at the deep end as a cheap answer to our managerial dilemma and he did his best and left with his head held high.
Just out of interest, if you bumped into him out and about  would you say that to his face?

Yeah that downward spiral we were in just arrested itself the season before last.

I really hope he does well - football is full of idiots and he is not one of them.

However, the realist in me thinks he will fail quickly. With us he had one of the best sides/budgets in the league and in my opinion, underachieved.
Having said that, perhaps without Graeme Jones behind the scenes maybe he will do better.

For me it was Graeme Jones who was the downfall for Darren Moore. I suppose he should have been stronger and stuck to his own principles.

I still think if Cyrille had still been alive , Darren Moore would have had him as his assistant.  that would have worked.
