    Not sure this is the best move for King Kenny, he's great reputation and career with liverpool could be tarnished if he becomes the manager who gets liverpool relegated.

    OK so it might not come to a relegation, but people said Newcastle were too good to go down 2 years ago, and this premier league is very tight. I don't think a change of managers is going to solve the problem with liverpool, they need to get a higher standard of player in

    Nice to see him back at the club but I am skeptical. he's hasn't been a manager for so long and the games changed a lot since then. I'll reserve full judgement till after I see a few matches but one thing I am glad about is that having him there may solve one problem we have big time which is player motivation.

    Di Matteo has been sacked

    West Brom have just sacked Di Matteo. There were rumours at the ground against Wigan that he was on the verge of the sack, but I dismissed them as we're generally know for giving our managers a lot of support. We're pretty pissed at our chairman for this sacking, because 99% of fans love Di Matteo for taking us up at the first time of asking and giving us our best start to a premiership season ever. He's been sacked now because we've got two very winnable home games coming up, and if we'd win those, Di Matteo would have been unsackable.

    Re: Premier League Discussion thread

    Stupid decision to sack him tbh. He gave you guys your best start in the premier league in a long while and just had a lil slump. No disrespect but West brom have been a yo-yo club when it comes to the premier league. Usually at this stage they are around 19/20th in the league and pretty much going down for sure, This year that isn't the case for them just yet and they could stay up. Don't see why they decided to let him go.

    Re: Premier League Discussion thread

    I think the chairman is worried by our form, and in desperation to stay up, he thinks changing a manager will give us the boost to stay up - i'm not so hopefully because our modern set up of head coaches and directors of football rule out some of the old school managers like O'Neil, Big Sam, Hodgson and Hughton and we'll get some inexperienced manager instead

    Former England manager Steve McClaren has been sacked by German giants Wolfsburg, ending a disappointing eight-month reign in charge of the former Bundesliga champions.

    "We were not convinced any more that we could work with Steve McClaren in a solid way until the end of the season," Wolfsburg general manager Dieter Hoeness said.

    McClaren joined the Volkswagen-backed team in the summer, weeks after leading Dutch minnows FC Twente to a surprise Eredivisie title.

    He has only won five of 21 Bundesliga matches and a 1-0 defeat at Hannover appears to have been the last straw, coming four games after a vote of confidence for the former Middlesbrough manager.

    The club lies 12th in the 18-team Bundesliga, one point above the relegation play-off places.
    That move to the England job killed him. He recovered somewhat with Twente but jumped ship as soon as a bigger club came in for him and is now back to square one yet again.

    Chris Hughton being heavily touted as new Albion head coach. Hughton has held talks with the board tonight, and hope to iron out details tomorrow, an announcement could be made as early as tomorrow afternoon.

    That's the news I'm hearing on my end, now to look at the betting

    West Brom have confirmed the appointment of ex-Liverpool manager Roy Hodgson as their new head coach.

    The 63-year-old, who parted company with the Reds in January after only six months in charge, succeeds Roberto di Matteo at the Hawthorns.
    Di Matteo was relieved of his duties and placed on gardening leave following Saturday's 3-0 loss at Manchester City.

    Caretaker head coach Michael Appleton will remain in temporary charge for the visit of West Ham on Saturday.

    "The club are now channelling all of their efforts into supporting Appleton, his assistants Keith Downing and Dean Kiely and the players as they prepare for tomorrow's vital game," said a statement.

    Hodgson will attend the match on a watching brief before meeting the West Brom hierarchy to discuss his plans and facing the media next week.
    The 63-year-old Englishman has signed a contract until June 2012 and takes over a Baggies side who have lose 13 of their last 18 matches in all competitions.

    He was voted manager of the year by the League Managers' Association after guiding Fulham to the 2010 Europa League final.

    The former Inter Milan and Switzerland boss then left Craven Cottage to succeed Rafael Benitez at Liverpool but was dismissed having won just seven of 20 Premier League games.
    Pretty happy with this for a short term fix, hopefully he can do the same job with us that he did with Fulham. His first game is going to be The Black Country Derby against Wolves, baptism of fire

    Good appointment IMO.

    He thrives at clubs where he is not under pressure to deliver success.

    ^ Pretty much that. Dude was way out of his depth at Liverpool but will do well for West brom because the expectations are much lower.

    Avram Grant has been sacked of manager of West Ham United. Taken from bbc sport.

    West Ham have parted company with manager Avram Grant after a 3-2 defeat at Wigan sealed their relegation from the Premier League.
    More to follow.
    The decision isn't a suprise, but I didn't think they'd take action quite so quickly

    Could have let him finish the season. No reason to sack someone with only one game left that wont even change anything.

    No point doing it now, this should of happened 3 months ago, look what a new manager has done for West Brom.

    I don't think Avram Grant would have done very well in the championship, so right to change the manager for next year.

    Paolo's back in English football

    Swindon Town confirm Paolo di Canio as new manager

    Paolo di Canio has been named as the new manager of Swindon Town.

    The controversial former West Ham striker has agreed terms and is expected to arrive at the County Ground on Monday.

    Di Canio, 42, was one of eight candidates interviewed for the position by Swindon chairman Jeremy Wray who is expected to make a statement on Friday.

    It would be the Italian's first coaching job in England since he retired from playing in 2008.

    He succeeds Paul Hart as the club's permanent manager, after the former Nottingham Forest and Portsmouth boss left last month following Swindon's relegation from League One.

    Former player Paul Bodin was in charge for Swindon's final two games of the season.

    Other contenders for the Swindon role were former Germany and Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann, ex-Scotland boss George Burley and former Bristol Rovers boss Paul Trollope, among others.

    Di Canio scored 48 goals in 118 appearances for West Ham after joining the London club for £1.7m from Sheffield Wednesday in 1999. He began his career at Lazio, and also played for Juventus, Napoli, AC Milan, Celtic and Charlton.

    As a player he regularly attracted headlines. Playing for Sheffield Wednesday in 1998, he pushed referee Paul Alcock to the ground after being sent off and was banned for 11 matches.

    His volleyed goal against Wimbledon for West Ham in March 2000 was named BBC Goal of the Season, and in 2001 he won the Fifa Fair Play Award for catching the ball to ensure the injured Everton goalkeeper Paul Gerrard could receive prompt treatment.

    After returning to Lazio, he was pictured making a raised-arm fascist salute to a group of the club's supporters, and claimed to be "a fascist, not a racist".

    Di Canio was linked with the vacant manager's role at West Ham following Avram Grant's dismissal after the club's relegation to the Championship but co-owner David Sullivan ruled out an approach because of the Italian's lack of managerial experience.

    "The problem with Paolo is, although the fans would love it, I am being realistic and he has no experience whatsoever being a manager," said Sullivan.

    "If you look at first-season managers the failure rate is enormous."

    Thought that was going to say West Ham when I just read the very top bit! He doesn't seem like managerial material to me, but would like to see him do well as I've always been a fan.

    And he scores goals...!
