‘Our club only thinks short term’ – Many West Brom fans frustrated as manager hunt update emerges and candidates are named

Published

West Bromwich Albion have reportedly identified Chris Wilder and Frank Lampard as potential Sam Allardyce replacements as they target out-of-work managers, which has drawn a frustrated reaction from many fans. 

It was announced after their defeat to West Ham United yesterday that Allardyce will step down at the end of the season.

The Baggies are set to drop back down to the Championship for the 2021/22 campaign and it appears they’re wasting no time eyeing potential new managers.

According to Sky Sports’ Rob Dorsett, Wilder and Lampard are top of their list of candidates to speak to as they search for an Allardyce replacement.

Both have thrived at Championship level in the past, with Wilder winning promotion with the Blades and Lampard taking Derby County to the play-off final.

It is understood that the Baggies will focus on out-of-work managers such as the duo as any compensation they will have to pay will eat into their transfer budget.

The report claims, however, that Lampard is more likely to join Crystal Palace to succeed Roy Hodgson.

Does The Hawthorns have a higher or lower capacity than these 18 grounds?
