    Taxi for Robbo

    Do you think if we ask Megson really nicely he might come back (least he stuck it for a bit)? Terry Venebals? Is there anyone who has managed in the premiership successfully who would want to come???

    There are no proven managers out there who want to come to Albion.


    The Chairman and the other board members, the supporters getting on their back after 8 games of a season, the poison challice of players only staying/re-signing/signing to play under the old manager, injury list as long as you could imagine so no quick results, want away players etc etc.
    The chance of anyone of calibre wanting to come to Albion with our recent history of manager turnover are slim and...

    • Sorry mate - i disagree. Has to be one of the easiest managerial jobs in the country. Whoever comes will have a decent salary compared to other championship managers. The team itself isnt bad and money will be available in January. If we get promoted then the manager will get all the credit, if not then he will probably get another chance next season. As for the ear ache from booing fans I think most of us could stand that for the kind of money he would be picking up!

      • Yep all fair points,

        Though I think we are a Premiership team in the Championship and maybe then we could consider the wages again. I don't want to get caught in the Championship forever. A promotion bonus of Premiership wages and spending budget. We have money in the coffers but Robson wasn't allowed to spend it.

        The more I think about Terry Venables the more I think he's worth a job offer.

        I'm just starting to get hacked off with Mr Peace, it seems he likes being in the limelight at the meerest hint of trouble there he is in the spotlight doing a song and dance. I think he just want to be like the Palace chairman/owner and on Football Focus all the time.

        If he appoints the wrong guy then I really won't be happy, plus there is the whole Director of Football that he is actively looking for and thats not really going to persuade an English manager in. I was for the idea when Robson had problems scouting, but now we have the chance to make a clean sweep and do without someone buying for the manager.

        If the next manager has problems or isn't the calibre we expect I think it's time to start looking higher.
