In recent months there hasn’t been a great amount for West Brom fans to cheer about.
Following the sacking of Darren Moore in March, the club failed to achieve promotion and are now still searching for a new manager.
Although talks with Slaven Bilic are in their final stages, there’s been some negative news in terms of backroom staff.
John Percy confirmed on Twitter that academy manager Mark Harrison would be leaving Albion to join Aston Villa this summer.

It was an update that left supporters of the Baggies extremely concerned as they left a host of replies expressing what they thought about the situation.
One fan simply said that the shambles at the club was now continuing whilst another claimed that West Brom were falling apart.
A further supporter expressed concerns over Rekeem Harper, speculating that he could follow Albion’s former academy boss to Villa.
Harrison spent 13 years at the Hawthorns in the role he’ll now leave behind, bringing through the likes of Saido Berahino, Izzy Brown and Kemar Roofe.
Considering the position the club’s academy is in, this will come as a bitter blow to lose him to a rival.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
Last one out turn the lights off
