Sky sports news stated that "he speaks little English". He'll fit in well at Smethwick then.

Not what they were hoping for is it?  No back room staff either so he's going to have to instill his ideas into the current coaching staff.  It's going to take time which Albion fans aren't noted for allowing.

He was always their first choice. If they keep repeating it somebody will believe it.

So convinced are they that he is the man, they've given him an extravagant 18 month contract.

His brief is obviously to make sure that Albion finish above the Villa this season. They can probably just about afford to pay up the remainder of his remaining 12 months if he doesn't.

His English is poor, by all accounts, so no doubt they'll get him a tutor in with the brief to make sure the first four words he learns are ASTON VILLA CUP FINAL

They should show him the 'Black Country Alphabet Song' to help him to learn the local lingo.

Our resident stripey is delighted with the appointment and not concerned about previous sackings as all managers get sacked.

They do indeed, but 5 times?

There's a few other essential phrases his tutor will need to learn him, pronto:

If we win, that's to be expected given their resources etc but if we celebrate it we're arrogant.

If they win, it's a big deal, we're rubbish and they are allowed to celebrate.

If we draw, then there is some reason why it is a moral victory for them and they are allowed to celebrate.

As a WBA fan, this thread is as hilarious as it is inaccurate.  Keep it going, boys.  :D

I still think Pepe Mel sounds like a clown that would pop up on a circus shown on telly at Christmas when I was a kid.

Or a mine artist, which considering he can't speak English might come in handy.
