Nigel Pearson looks set for the manager’s job at Bristol City and some West Brom fans are disappointed by that.
In reaction to the news, many fans have suggested that the former Watford boss would have been a good replacement if Sam Allardyce was to leave.
Big Sam’s future is in doubt as West Brom face almost certain relegation, and he has not managed in the Championship in 20 years.
He does have a contract until 2022 but recently remained coy on his future, and refused to say whether he would be sticking around.
If the Albion hierarchy is sensible they will start preparing for life without him now.
But others would back Pearson to lead us back out of the Championship if that is to be our fate.
He guided Leicester to the Premier League before keeping them up in his first season.
His most recent managerial stint was at Watford last season.
They looked doomed for relegation when he took over but he galvanised the squad, and even beat a brilliant Liverpool side 3-0.
He was sacked harshly with two games remaining, and in the end Watford missed out on survival by just a point.
Here is some of the reaction to the news that he will likely join Bristol City.
Great appointment. I want him when BFS gets sacked or walks out.
