Alan Nixon shares verdict on West Brom managerial hunt, labels it 'mess'

West Brom are still hunting for the man who will be responsible in earning promotion back to the Premier League next season. 

Numerous names continue to be thrown around, but nothing concrete has been delivered that makes anyone believe an appointment is close.

The Sun journalist Alan Nixon has shared his verdict on Tuesday morning, and it appears as though things aren’t straightforward.

Writing on his personal Twitter account, Nixon insisted that the managerial scene is a “mess” around England right now, making sure to emphasise the Baggies situation.

“Managerial scene a mess right now,” he wrote.

“Spurs, Everton, Palace, Bournemouth and don’t mention West Brom.”


This isn’t the word we want to be reading in regards to the hunt for our next manager.

We have had plenty of time to get this done, and it appears as though despite interviews concluding this weekend, the final decision is far from being made.

Joseph Masi has reported that the Baggies have made a U-turn and are now open to paying compensation for the right manager, opening the door back up for Michael Appleton, who is currently the favourite.

Chris Wilder is still a name that keeps bouncing around, and although reports suggesting the Albion had pulled the plug, that one is still ongoing.

There are too many names in the hat right now, and that will need to start being rattled down sooner rather than later if we want an effective summer window and pre-season.
