Without looking (so excuse me if its common knowledge) but it will be interesting to see who he chooses as past of his backroom staff.

I wish the bloke well, he will probably do well enough to get around the play offs, he has something about him which makes players want to do well for him.

If he is able to go back to his mindsight when he first became caretaker manager, as opposed to how we tried to play with Jones, then he should do well enough.

I wish the bloke every success. I really do.

I just think it speaks volumes that after leaving us in 4th in the Championship, he's had to drop down a level for his next job.

Interesting that people blame Big Dave's managerial shortcomings on Graeme Jones as if they were in the team talks and dugout.  How Jones gets on at Luton should settle it.  But if he was giving duff advice to DM, DM didn't need to take it.

Can kind of see where you're coming from, but look at the players he had to work with last season. We had freescoring strikers and some other PL players. Would he have got to 4th with another team? I'm not sure he would. My main issue with him was not learning from his mistakes quick enough.

I genuinely wish him all the best though. Is a great bloke and will always be a hero here.

Look we all love big Dave as a person he is a gentle giant and gives his time for everyone but the fact is he shouldn't of been handed the job. That winning run towards the end of the premier League season was the worst thing that could of happened as it gave the board a easy decision to make. We should of gone for someone such as Dean Smith who has worked wonders with shoe string budgets. Sacking Darren was the right decision it was failing to replace him with a strong experienced replacement which was the mistake.

hope he gets given a bit more time, plenty of positives to Darren moore as a manager he needed a smaller job to find his feet.
very good opportunity for us to get the likes of leko and possibly o'shea or Fitzwater a loan deal and some game time
O Albion we love you

A much more reasoned and balanced assessment than my manic rants.

I am pleased that he has got back into the game. I hope he does well at Donny but I wouldn't under estimate the pressure he is under there either. Yes they are in League one but they made the play-offs last year so there are expectations.

Hopefully he will pick up the lessons he has learned from his all too brief spell in charge at the Hawthorns and prove his critics wrong. As ever I am somewhat conflicted about the whole episode, I didn't think he should have been appointed in the first place but nor did I think he should have been sacked when he was.

Good luck to him I will be looking out for his results.

After watching that tonight, I'm so annoyed with Darren for trusting this guy. Hamstrung himself and was doomed to fail. Massive shame.


It was like watching Albion 18/19 lite.

I agree mate.

 it’s shame because I’ve always quite liked Luton for some reason, think it may have something to do with it’s the away end that stays in my memory more than any other but with Jones there it does make me want them to go down.

 Really don’t like the bloke.
