The debate over the managerial situation at West Brom looks as though it’s never going to end as fans reacted to the news that the club may wait until the summer before appointing a permanent boss.
The feeling is it will be far easier to appoint the right permanent head coach in summer when #wba know what division they’re in and more managers are available (Wagner/Neil etc.) Only time will tell if it’s right call #wba

In recent weeks the club has held talks with Slavisa Jokanovic and targeted Alex Neill but might be coming to the conclusion that James Shan, currently acting as caretaker, is the best option for the time being.
Baggies supporters have been left frustrated with developments but some believe it would be a sensible and logical choice to wait until the end of the campaign.
However, there were questions asked by one individual, who was still baffled that the club sacked Darren Moore when they did. Another was concerned that the calibre of managers they were waiting on didn’t exactly have great reputations.
Was Darren Moore’s sacking unfair? The Pl>ymaker FC squad name which Championship bosses should have gone instead in the video below…
Fears were also shared over what would happen if Shan got the club promoted, with a certain fan saying things could become dangerous.
At the moment, West Brom sit in the playoffs but might be at risk of not returning to the Premier League unless owners can surround him with more experience.
Here is the reaction on Twitter…
Makes sense. If rather wait for the right man for the long term than another short term failure.

I think this is a logical decision, but I suspect I’m in the minority.

Altho its a cheap option it makes sense in that there will be continuity and a big chance for Shan to make a name. Hopefully they will get someone in to assist. It just leads to a chaotic summer

I suppose that looks the right call from the outset. But begs the question why sack Moore when they did? Seems very pointless now and it’s clear it would’ve been better letting him finish the job he started now

My worry with this is that the managers we seem to be waiting for are hardly of a high calibre with great reputations.

If Shan has the senior players onboard with his tactics/formation then I’m happy. Otherwise we’ll be one of only a few teams to shoot ourselves in the foot with automatic promotion still being realistic. #WBA

This becomes dangerous in itself. Imagine the uproar if this man gets us promoted and we dont give him the job full time

But what happens to Shan if he gets us promoted?
