Chris Winterburn for World Soccer Talk:
West Brom do now face the difficulty of appointing a new manager quickly with the January transfer window rapidly approaching within which Albion will have to strengthen. It is an oddly similar situation to last term following Steve Clarke’s dismissal when the club took just under a month to appoint Pepe Mel as his replacement.
It took a bit longer for the sacking to start, but here we go. Second in a matter of days.
Lets hope they have someone ready to replace him right away. Firing Clarke was a mistake, especially after taking so long to replace him. Hodgson, Clarke, Mel, Irvine—it looks like a downwards trend, hopefully they can break it.
