Alan Pardew leaves West Brom
The next manager predicted to be facing the sack has left West Brom by mutual agreement. Alan Pardew took over West Brom from Tony Pulis in November last year and has seen some poor results this season. He had been on a short sabbatical prior to this and his results since assuming the role of WBA prove that he had become rusty and was probably not ready for the job. Many believed that Pardew would bring the exciting football that the West Brom owners did not think that Pulis was capable of producing when they sought for the Frenchman. All this led to huge expectations which have since been turned to disappointment. This is because Alan Pardew managed to win only one game in his 18 games in charge. What a shocking run. It is no surprise that West Brom find themselves at the bottom of the table with just 20 points. Pardew has left the club in shambles and went with his assistant head coach, John Carver. This means that the club will be temporarily managed by Darren Moore who was the first team coach while they are looking for a possible replacement. The two potential candidates being mentioned the frame include Nigel Pearson and Craig Shakespeare who will face the difficult task of overturning the results for West Brom who are currently on a run of 8 consecutive defeats in the league. This is a nightmare that January loanee, Daniel Sturridge did not envision himself being involved in at the start of this season. Both candidates have had some experience working at The Howthorns with Pearson being an assistant manager at the club in 2004 and later taking over as caretaker manager in 2006. Shakespeare played for WBA during 1990-1993 and also became the caretaker charge in 2006 after the departure of Pearson. Who do you think will take over at West Brom among these early front-runners?
