Really happy with this.
Glad we've taken our time and not rushed into getting one of the merry go round / safe pair of hands managers.

Exciting times ahead I think.

I'm pleased it is sorted as it enables us to crack on, but i'm on the fence with Bilic. It seems he did well with Croatia, poorly in Moscow, Par at Besiktas, OK with West Ham and poorly in Saudi Arabia so its a real mixed bag. He speaks well as a pundit mind and will i'll support him until I have reason not to!

It will be interesting to discover who his background team is. I hope Shan stays in his original post.

Considering the options this is an appointment I can get behind. I believe he's a clear 4231 guy so it should also give us some sense of what we'll be looking for. I have to assume the financial plan for transfers has already been discussed, so let's get it!

Good to have someone in sooner rather than later - now if he could bring in Reece Oxford too it would be great.

Probably better than most of us had hoped for.
He has the footballing pedigree hope it works out for him and us.

Julian Dicks hopefully for one. There will be no shirkers if he's around.

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

its not guranteed mate but theres more chance of success by doing that than negativity. :)

Got a boing back in my step now, if it goes pear shaped so be it.  High enough profile to encourage those we want to stay to stay, and those we want to come here to take it seriously.

Absolutely delighted with this appointment after some of the names we have been linked with, only Bilic, Jokanovic and Labbadia were acceptable to me. This is only the start, Slaven has a massive rebuild to orchestrate starting today.


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.

ATID.


In a word no. This is a start, but Dowling and Jenkins need to go a LOT further to mend the damage they have caused and regain our trust. I will however keep my powder dry until the Transfer Window closes.
Proud to be a Baggie. BOING BOING.

Huge sign of relief that this is over and that the board have made a considered appointment and not a cheap one. Well done board (finally) and welcome Slaven!

Just need to get right behind him and the club now😁

It's not about Dowling and Jenkins it's about the club, it is way bigger than either of them.

Yeah, everything might end up ****, who knows, we could all die tomorrow for all we know, but we've got a much better chance if we're all pulling in the same direction. Divided we fall.

Bilic doesn't have an easy job, not by a long stretch let's not make it any more difficult than it needs to be.

Happy with that appointment.  Can't have been cheap either so may this year will be a bigger push than we originally thought?  Bilic is not the type of manager who will settle for mid table Championship.

Very happy with this appointment not just because I think he is a decent coach, but if he has agreed to sign then he surely must have been given assurances with bringing players in etc. I doubt he would have joined us just to be asset stripped and rely on kids and has-beens.
