‘Not for me’ – 43-year-old open to West Brom manager’s job: Opinion



West Brom are moving swiftly following the sacking of Darren Moore, with the club already considering a short-list of four potential candidates including former Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic, according to a report in the Telegraph.

A former player and coach at the Hawthorns has also thrown his hat in the ring with Michael Appleton open to an approach, being a free-agent having left Leicester City last June, according to the Express & Star.

So should Appleton be considered for the West Brom hot-seat at all?

We discuss…..

Jacob Potter

“He wouldn’t be my first-choice.

“Appleton has an impressive CV but West Brom need to appoint a manager that is proven in the Championship.

“The likes of Slavisa Jokanovic and David Wagner should both be considered ahead of Appleton at a crucial stage of West Brom’s season.”

Louie Chandler

“Not for me.

“Appleton is clearly a decent coach, but I think the Baggies will need somebody more proven in the upper reaches of the second-tier.

“It is a massive call, whoever they choose to bring in.”

Gary Hutchinson

“Yes, but he won’t be.

“The problem is he’s got a great reputation but hasn’t actually done much at this level.

“Assistant at Leicester doesn’t count.

“As a standalone manager, he’s still relatively untested.”

Jay Taylor

“Not at all.

“He has done well recently in the lower leagues – more so Oxford United than anyone else of note.

“But based on that one run at the Us, he is not a manager that West Brom should consider.

“There are better all-round managers out there that have done it at Championship level – target them – not Appleton.”
