It's come from Percy. Can't get a more reliable source. It's done. Albion will get round to announcing it when they get their arses into gear.

Might take them three months though.  :D ;)

Very Happy and looking forward to hopefully some “rock’n’roll” football but just don’t understand why this wasn’t done once Moore was ousted? It’s taken this long to get someone who was out of work which for me is just penny pinching. I suppose the whys and how’s don’t matter now. Welcome Slav, good luck I think you may need it

Can all fans now get behind the club now PLEASE and stop moaning.

This isn't a cheap option and no we didn't get Appleton.

If you haven't got a season ticket, get one, lets get behind the club and make the Hawthorns a special place next season.

Considering some of the dross we have been linked with, I'm quite happy.

I can still see him walking in November after an argument with Jenkins.

Can only paste what I said earlier...

Great news. Let the rebuild commence!

Welcome to the club Slav. I will go on record as saying, I am very happy with your appointment. First time I have said that since we appointed Roy.

Overall I'm pretty pleased with this, certainly puts paid to the Yes Man/Cheap option/steady eddy predictions imo.

I've got to give some credit to the board for the apparent ambition of this appointment, and if they now back him to build a squad I don't know how i'll cope with some positivity around the place.

Proper happy with this appointment. Might get a season ticket now.

Interesting that he said the club has a short term and a long term strategy. I was convinced we had neither.

STILL negativity.

Come on man let's big ourselves up for once. Let's get everything buzzing. Remember that atmosphere vs Villa. We can do it, let's make sure we do.

PS! No offence intended.  :-*

Great. Lets hope he can instil a lot more urgency about the place and kick a few butts. Been far too much 'old-pals' stuff going on recently.
Looking forward to not being bored senseless by backwards and sideways football!

What the hell does it take for some people? Are you on medication?

agreed. do not need any negativity and the club need to re-group and create more atmospheres like against the villa and not like various home games last year when we went 1-0 down or took a short goal kick and full of groans and moans.

really excited about this appointment and glad we didnt rush in giving it some nobody or a someone promoted within the club. financially back Bilic and i believe we will see results.

Sorry everyone. I forgot that everything will be brilliant if we sing louder, clap harder, and believe in everything the club do, even the things that contradict the other things they were doing.

PS No offence intended  :P
