    If they’re going to go with a heart before head decision they may aswell just make Bale player manager. At least he’d turn up for international duty when injured.

    Pulis axed!

    It's been coming for a while, two wins in their last 20-something games and both of those came in August. Yet I always wondered if the WBA hierarchy would dare to pull the trigger and fire a man who would normally be the man you want to lead you out of a relegation battle.

    People have said that about a fair few Sunderland managers recently. You have nothing to gain by taking on that basket case.

    They couldn’t have waited until next week? Bastards.

    There's a hell of a lot of very average managers floating around from one job to the next. So good to have a stable manager right now.

    It always seems to happen to us. Hopefully they won’t have anyone in place before Saturday.

    So glad this happened after West Ham got shafted with Moyes.

    Now they can witness WBA hire a capable manager who will actually get them out of trouble.

    Pulis for Wales.

    Fat (& ugly, smelly, where's my moustache gone?) Sam for WBA.

    So there's literally no one left to take over from Moyes Out at West Ham.

    Think Big Sam wants the US job though. Not sure he'll go to WBA or hold out for that

    Some think he was using talk of the US job to prompt a club to take action and get him in.

    Thing is with WBA is that the fans have been very vocal about the style of football, so I'd imagine they'd be looking at bringing a progressive coach in.

    Pulis for Wales, just makes the Coleman to Sunderpants move even more baffling....

    I've been trying to think of some famous West Brom players of the past that are now managers. The only issue is that there don't seem to be any famous West Brom players.

    I actually think this is good news for a few reasons. One because football wins here, and secondly I know some are saying it's a bad thing with us playing them next but I'm over the moon. I know his record has been shit, but I still think the last thing we need at Wembley right now is a Pulis team with barely any intention of actually scoring parking a double decker bus for the whole 90 minutes.

    Well, there is one individual who has proven himself to be a fine Premier League manager in the past and also played for West Bromwich Albion...

    Not sure he particularly enjoyed it though. Got a face on him like Jan in the Sherwood years...

    Would love to see him back. Only after we've played them though.

    Another man who really needs to watch his back is Paul Clement.

    There's a funny thing with Clement I've noticed. When he's out of work, or someone else's #2, he comes across as smooth and calm and grown up. But the moment he gets the #1 seat, he becomes flustered and panicky and his air of authority seems to drain away. Blames refs and the run of the ball all the time, while (clearly) failing to get his supposedly vaunted coaching ideas across to his players.

    Tick-tock time for him too now.
