I would be over the Moon with this appointment but not believing it until i see him holding the scarf.
Agree with others he must be given time to build and bring in his own brand of football.
I remember when Johnny Giles took over at the start of the 75 - 76 season we were bottom of the old Second Division in September.

The one bit of news which made me cautious yesterday was the whole 'the contract has been sent to the solicitors' thing.

Found that really bizarre and from memory I cant recall any other club releasing that type of information.

It's a boring thing to say, but I would highly doubt any manager would sign a contract without his own legal advisors reviewing and accepting first. I can only imagine the small print on contacts worth a few million quid over a number of years (especially from Jenkins - bet he tries getting away with a lot!).

Was that a little prompt to Wilder - "last chance." Not really keen on that game!

The club haven't released that information. It has come from Matt Wilson, Sky Sports and wherever they got it from, most probably an agent or a representative. If it came from the club it'd be quoted as such.

Probably wants to make sure we haven't changed something since we spoke, for example changing from it £ to € as we "allegedly" did with a player a few years ago which saw him go elsewhere. Don't ask me who or exactly when as I genuinely cannot remember but remember the rumours hence my "allegedly"

No. It meant that the draft contracts had been sent to the solicitors to look over to make sure that they were legally correct. Normal practice. Nothing underhand or suspicious.

Is there a Croatian theme here?
Bilic was born in Split same as Ivanisevic, where was Adrian Chiles mother born?

Slaven making sure he isn't getting screwed over by Jenkins, like him even more now. Looks like a bloke who won't take crap

Not sure what to think of appointing Billic - is he the man for a rebuild job in the Championship?

Hope it works out.

Bloody hell. If we're going to have to wait for back up staff to be confirmed we could be waiting another week.

The one good thing is at least he's talking the club up unlike some of our own fans and certain previous people holding important roles at the club.

I would, however, take this report with a pinch of salt. Why would the Sun know anything our own Matt Wilson, or Sky Sports or John Percy wouldn't?

Out of all the available managers not currently tied with a club i would say majority of Albion fans can agree he is the leading candidate by quite some distance.

i just hope there is no where near as much negativity in the ground next season and we actually back Bilic in what he tries to do. it will take time.

Was really hoping/half expecting this to be done today.. really hope we can get Bilic signed asap. The longer this drags the worse I feel

In other words he wants his own people and the club are trying to get the existing staff to be kept on.

Stumbling block could potentially be Shan? Didn't the club say he would be kept on and probably pushing to have him as part of the new set up, Bilic might want a fresh start with all new staff and no ties to the club.

And rightly so in my opinion, we've been failing as a club for a while now!

Well, we've got the defenders in place for that!  Just no strikers left.
