‘Sign of ongoing success’ – Many Lincoln City fans react to Michael Appleton update

Michael Appleton has emerged as the new frontrunner to become the new manager of West Brom, according to Football Insider.

The Baggies remain on the lookout for a new manager following Sam Allardyce’s decision to leave the Hawthorns at the end of the season, after they were relegated to the Championship.

After a move for Chris Wilder reportedly broke down, it looks as if attentions have been turned towards Lincoln boss Appleton.

Appleton is, of course, no stranger to West Brom, having played for the club between 2001 and 2003, and then taking charge of their Under-23s’ after a brief coaching stint with the first-team.

He’s since moved to Lincoln and guided the Imps to a League One play-off final this season, where they just fell short to Blackpool at Wembley.

But according to Football Insider, Appleton has now emerged as the frontrunner in the race to become West Brom boss, with contact being made regarding the role.

Lincoln have had to deal with a great amount of speculation surrounding their managers in the past, especially when Danny Cowley was at the helm.

Here, we take a look at how they reacted to this latest news…
