With West Bromwich Albion’s seemingly endless search for a new manager or head coach continuing months on from the sacking of Darren Moore, the latest name to gain some traction on the rumour mill has been former West Ham and Croatia boss Slaven Bilic.
We’ve seen plenty of names linked, and plenty of fans will naturally have their own thoughts on those names but as the week came to a close, the E&S claimed that Bilic was now in pole position for the job with our Board after he met them at the training ground on Thursday for a second interview, but terms haven’t yet been agreed.
And that poses a problem of its own, as journalist
Alan Nixon Tweeted on Saturday, “If they can agree terms. And that’s been a big if with many.”
The claims received their own predictable response from a fanbase quickly coming to the end of their tether.
Well it's well documented the terms of a candidate wins the job are ….
a 2 bed maisonette in tipton with a free chippy if we win …. He gets to leave at 1pm on a Friday though…. Believe this is the leaked job application

Can’t wait for “wages seem to be an issue”

He’ll want more money than we can allegedly afford and then cue the words ‘WBA are looking elsewhere after failing to agree terms’…..our board is a shambles…..
