‘A lot needs to be considered’ – West Brom’s hunt for a new manager takes another twist: Opinion



With last weekend’s firing of Darren Moore, West Bromwich Albion are the latest team to be on the hunt for a new manager.

Despite guiding them to fourth place in the Championship table, a 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town last weekend led to the Baggies’ board firing Moore as manager.

Jimmy Shan has taken temporary charge of the first team for now but the club will most likely be looking for a bigger name.

And they were handed a boost on Thursday when it was reported by the Mirror that Slavisa Jokanovic was reportedly keen on a return to English football.

Having won promotion to the Premier League twice before with both Watford and Fulham, it is easy to see why he has been targeted.

But should the West Brom now go all out for the Serbian boss?

We discuss…

Gary Hutchinson

“Define going ‘all out’.

“Should they risk the financial stability of the club for a manager? No.

“Should they make a concentrated and definite effort to get him, rather than a wishy-washy half-baked attempt? Yes.

“He’d be a good fit there and he’s got promoted before.”

Jay Taylor

“I don’t think they should go all out.

“A lot needs to be considered when appointing a manger.

“Throwing money at it does not guarantee success by any means.

“They need to be more diligent than offer him what he wants.”

Jacob Potter

“It’s a no brainer surely?

“Jokanovic is a proven winner in the Championship and should be top of West Brom’s list to find Moore’s successor.

“They need a proven manager and Jokanovic ticks that box.”
