West Brom’s managerial saga may have been put to bed with the appointment until the end of the season of James Shan, but certain sectors of the Hawthorns faithful are still finding ways to remain negative.
The club sealed a play-off place with a 0-0 draw against Reading last Monday and in preparation for their next clash with Rotherham this weekend, Michael Appleton has been appointed as a coach.

It’s news that hasn’t been taken kindly by some Albion supporters with one fan saying the club would go nowhere with him.
Further fans rolled their eyes at the fact the Baggies’ board may look to him to become permanent manager next term.
One tweet called West Brom a shambles, directing their anger at how they hadn’t appointed him sooner given there was now only a few weeks of the season remaining.
Darren Moore was sacked in March but it took until last week for the Albion hierarchy to finally make a decision over who would take the reigns properly.
Was Darren Moore’s sacking unfair? The Pl>ymaker FC squad name which Championship bosses should have gone instead in the video below…
Appleton has become the latest name to become a coach at the club, with Steven Reid also being appointed to bolster the level of expertise available to Shan.
Here’s what’s been said on Twitter.
Let’s just hope he’s passing through. We’ll go nowhere with him.

Met Appleton a few times and he’s a decent bloke. But what a shambles the club is in to bring a new coach in with only two (max 5) league games remaining #wba
