    James Shan

    If Jokanavic doesn't come, I'm not too interested in many other names on the list to be honest.

    I'd like to see us give it to him for the rest of the season.

    We should still make the play offs and I quite like the idea of promoting from within. We might have the next Pep coaching an Albion youth side waiting to be discovered. And our youngsters are in the semi final of the Youth Cup so they must be doing something right.

    In truth, our board should have had someone lined up and ready to go, but failing that what other options are there? Moyes? Wagner? No thanks...Shan knows the players and club inside out, he won't need time to get familiar with them.

    If we win at Brentford. There might be some growing support for this to happen...

    Because you are very thick and very stupid, let me explain how this concept works.

    This is a message board where people come to give their opinions. Not everyone's you will agree with.

    They can then detail the reasoning behind their opinion if they choose to, like I have above.

    You give your opinions and articulate nothing.

    You are essentially the board's general cretin and gobsh1te. So, I'm more than happy if we disagree.

    Pay Al no attention 123. He knows nothing about the club. The tea lady's name is Anita!

    I knew a girl called Anita
    Who for breakfast always ate granita
    Her life long dream
    Was to manage a team
    And no one could ever beat her.

    So Chris, Anita the tea lady might be a good shout!

    Rich coming from the boards biggest remoaner - yawn yawn! Every poster that mentions leave or anti EU, you shoot them down in flames. You mock Farage and Johnson along with others, but can't remember Johnson going to a run of the mill uni like you

    Calling someone thick when the club have got rid of a legend albeit one, who was out of his depth to be replaced by a novice like Shan - well that certainly is thick! Then again, opinions from cocky londoners were always ****e!

    Apologies Chris! Anita the tea lady for the managers role

    I actually think we need to appoint someone who doesn't know the players. There's been too much of the old pals act down there. You may well be right about Shan but appointing him short term is not going to shift season tickets before their end of April deadline. Which I'm sure is high on Jenkins agenda.

    I just hope that this time we appoint somebody who is considered to be the right fit for the position and that finance isn't a factor in the process. I may be wrong but I feel that this has been an issue with past appointments. We have to get this one right.

    I hope to christ it isn't Appleton but I see he's in the running. I'd imagine someone like Rowett will get it. I'd imagine they'd want Jokanavic who is the best realistic candidate but won't pay the money so it will be someone desperate for the job or currently looking for a club. Great eh?

    I hope to god we are aren’t going to go down the sentimental route again by giving Shan the job.

    We’ve had two good results but by all accounts we’ve been outplayed in both matches and had very low possession stats and Johnstone has had two very impressive matches in goal.

    This is hardly the blueprint we need for the club.

    After Moore going, only a complete knob would say Shan should be given the opportunity! The clue is - all 17 million who voted out are all thick

    It is a results driven business, however, this is West Brom, so anything can happen or perhaps nothing will happen.

    Got a feeling that we've waited for today's games to be out of the way before approaching Preston for Neil.

    No need to give Shan the job. Leave it as it is until the end of the season or until someone suitable becomes available who wants the job and we want him.

    That’s exactly what we should do. Any potential manager who is any good will want assurances on budgets and personnel for next year that we cannot give until we know where we’ll be playing.

    Shan is very lucky so far, how we didn't lose at least 5-1 to Swansea is a mystery and again at Brentford if it wasn't for Edwards wonder goal. Johnstone has been suspect all season but has played a blinder the last two games. As to the next manager I seriously couldn't give a stuff, when you sack someone for getting you to the play offs and consider a manager who "Only took 3 seasons to reach the play offs with Fulham" when Moore did it in his first season you have to say that the club has totally lost its marbles. Everyone I speak to says the same, doesn't matter who they support. Here is a fact that I come up against in conversation...The championship is a very difficult league and just because we were in the Prem is no indication that you will go straight back up. We ARE doing great in our first season. If we do somehow manage to go up Moore should be part of the celebrations for what he did for 3/4 of the season.

    Honestly I thought DM was sacked because we had already lined up Jokanavic. There was a window of opportunity to sign him up and we would take it. We were given the impression a swift appointment would be made. Or please tell me if I’ve dreamt this up. Maybe I’m hearing voices.
    All this fake news about him having more talks last Monday and expecting an announcement by Wednesday was in truth total bolloxxk.
    So now the dust has settled it does appear that we just sacked him and trusted good fortune and following wind that it would all come good. The plan was based on rolling the dice.
    Maybe last Saturday had some lucky significance in the Chinese calendar. They can be a superstitious lot at times and partial to speculative punt.
    But in all seriousness this is not a game for us fans , a bit of fun to indulge in.
