West Brom Super Fans react to Roy Hodgson rumour

This is part of a regular series from our panel of West Brom Super Fans. Each week, Super Fans from our West Brom News Facebook page will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around The Hawthorns.


West Brom are interested in bringing Roy Hodgson back to The Hawthorns and we asked our Super Fans for their view on the potential move.

The Sun report Hodgson is a manager of interest, but Albion will only try to appoint him if Sam Allardyce decides to leave.

Hodgson will be available as he is out of contract at the end of the season, and it is believed that Crystal Palace are unlikely to renew his deal.

Chris Wilder is another name linked with the Baggies job should Allardyce leave, and his  future is up in the air at the moment.

Our Super Fans seem to be split on Hodgson, despite the unanimous opinion that he did a good job in his previous spell at The Hawthorns.

Here is what they had to say about the speculation.

Hodgson was very successful when he managed Albion between 2011-2012, winning 20 of his 54 games in charge – a win percentage of 37%.

He has been successful at most clubs he has been at, particularly in recent years as he has saved Crystal Palace and Fulham from relegation.

Building a promotion team presents a different challenge but every Hodgson side is well organised and he has his players working in tandem to give their everything for the cause.

We trust he will make a big impact if he was to arrive but since Allardyce is here already and knows the squad, we would still rather he stays.
