Dowie has to wait his turn.  Billy Davies is before him.

Oh jeez I forgot about him  :D

Except they always said Shan was an interim manager... so we've been looking for a new manager since the 9th March (89 days ago).  OK, we may have known what division we'd be in, but prepare properly and have 2 lists ready to go.  There is nothing that illustrates the kind of manager they are looking for, or what criteria they are applying.  It's totally scattergun.  We have failed to prepare.
Failure to prepare = prepare to fail !!

As long as Terry Connor gets his interview I'll be happy, ex dingle association aside.

The Perce has spoken! Whoever said Bilic was at the training ground yesterday was correct.

Got a feeling it will be put to bed today, pointless having a third round of talks, no one ever has a third interview do they!?!

Sounds promising. Hopefully, he'll be given funds to recruit young attack-minded midfielders with fire in their bellies....what we've been lacking for three years or more IMO.

Im guessing all that can happen now is the goal posts are moved last minute on contract details and deal collapses OR we finally actually get a new gaffer!

Happy with Bilic. A big name who can attract decent players. How much for Modric ?.  ;D

Have to say that i would be chuffed with this, I was advocating Bilic when we made the Pardew error.

West brom and "characters" go hand in hand IMO.

Naa, I don't believe it and I fully expect Appleton to get the gig as the boards number 1 and unanimous choice after an extensive search.

I would be very happy if Bilic gets the job. After the media surrounding this I'll be very angry if almost anyone else the job suddenly.

As said, you can't have two rounds of talks with someone and then not sign them. The first round would have included discussions on style, funds, expectations and contract requirements. The second round would be similar but in more depth.

It all sounds very promising and if he gets the job we could attract some decent players. Fail to land him and I fear we'll be in a relegation scrap next season.

I think the Bilic article is just rehashed news. He had the second interview days ago.

The article states he was at the training ground for the talks yesterday, and its The Perce so pretty solid rather than rehashed I would suggest.....

Fingers crossed then. I would prefer Bilic out of all the names we have been linked with.

Yes, it certainly does look like the club is facing a binary choice between either appointing Bilic or facing a relegation battle next season.

Wanted Jokanovic, but would be equally as pleased with Bilic.

And to be fair, I think most of the candidates we have been linked with and interviewed would be an upgrade, to an extent, on our last three previous Head Coaches (sorry Darren).

If you are offering me Bilic over the likes of Bowyer, Appleton et al I would snatch your hand off.

Just saw this on Twitter from a BEin Sports reporter  Tancredi Palmeri. Verified account , official acccount 180k followers.

"How do you say West Bromwich in Portuguese? WBA in talks with surprise candidate Rui Almeida from Troyes for managerial role. Meeting already took place and he is in final shortlist. Finished 3rd in Ligue2"
