This week at West Brom has once again been dominated by manager talk. Alex Neil signed a new deal with Preston which the Baggies followed up by appointing James Shan until the end of the season.
Then on Thursday, the club confirmed the appointment of Steven Reid as a member of Shan’s coaching staff.
In the build-up to the announcement and following the confirmation, West Brom fans have been crying out for former striker Kevin Phillips to return.
West Brom have been planning to add two people to help Shan for the rest of the season and Baggies supporters seem to have a preference.
One fan said that all would be forgiven if they brought back the 45-year-old.
Another supporter claimed that adding Reid and Phillips to the coaching team would be quality additions.
Was Darren Moore’s sacking unfair? The Pl>ymaker FC squad name which Championship bosses should have gone instead in the video below…
Phillips played for the club for two seasons between 2006 and 2008, scoring 46 goals in 80 games. He also helped them to win the Championship in the 2007/08 season.
Here’s the best of the reaction from Twitter.

Reid and Philips for me would be quality additions. They were tough solid pros who knew the game and would demand respect as well and inspire kids. Would be good combo for Shan
