I had sort of forgotten Albion still hadn't appointed a manager. But a quick look at Oddschecker tells me that suddenly Slaven Bilic is the 1/4 favourite for the job. Next in the betting are Hughton and Cowley at 12/1. Harry Monk is 14/1.

Listening to Talksport: Bilic almost certainly new Albion manager. Sorry, can't do links.

He has the look of being morbidly depressed all the time and the dress sense of a tramp - he will fit like a glove over there

He should be depressed the way his managerial career has gone.

Manager of his nation Croatia
Manager of Lokomotiv Moscow and Besiktas in the Europa League and Champions League
Manager of Premier League West Ham
Earning a fortune for a year in Saudi Arabia
Manager of Championship West Bromwich Albion

Apparently John Terry turned down the chance to speak to them about being their manager. Hahahahahaha.

I saw this on Twitter, somebody quoting from the Times.

He had that haunted look about him towards the end of his time at West Ham. Reminded me of the way Lambert looked as he was dragging us to oblivion.

I am guessing Bilic just couldn't resist the chance to manage the pride of the Midlands.
