It's looking like Pardew will take over.

Well, that is an interesting thing is it not. I thought that the Chinese were cutthroat astute businessmen. Now, FOSUN don't take any prisoners however big your name and reputation is, but the Blouse and the Boggies' Chinese owners seem to be amateurs when it comes to selecting the right management needed to realise what they initially invested for in the first place.

What would the likes of Pardew bring to the Boggies in terms of style of play with the players he will inherit and be stuck with for at least another month and WHO would join them and from where and at what price???

Albions owner doesn't actually seem that interested in Albion, strange as that may sound, he seems to be interested in setting up eco-friendly soccer schools in China, whole towns set up using Albions "brand" to further fuck knows what end, kissing the Chinese PM's arse no doubt?

Given the state of Villa and Blues Chinese ownership and the shits impending fall I think we have struck lucky with our Chinese overlords

Luck of the draw for us, OR just good astute due diligence work by Jezza and Red Nose - difficult to judge really, but I am happy that we got FOSUN albeit, there was some disappointment that we didn't get the most absolute mega rich Chinaman we were rumoured to be getting prior to the takeover.

Interested to see how Pardew does. Lots of piss-taking going on right now but I still think the lucky gits will survive in the PL again.

There are ten clubs all looking for a safe managerial option and they dont exist.

The difference is likely to be confidence levels and the role of the ball.

All played out in a media frenzy of sharks who smell blood from day one.

What a frightened league the Premier league has become...

Pardew won a total of six games in a Calendar year when with Palace.

Good choice.

A lot of small clubs in the Prem, more for them to worry about.

Years ago there would have been a stepping stone for the likes of Chris Wilder who would have been installed at Everton or West Brom.

As with British born players there is no pathway.

Still can't score..which will equal relegation.
Pardew is lucky to have a premier league job, but keep up the good work :D

In the championship, Blues will not beat the drop..its going to be a good season

Its difficult to move from a sit in defensive shape which you hold for most of the ninety minutes into a more fluent system.

Its like an opening batsman new to the crease, they fail to use their legs.

Got in last night settled down and turned on MOTD.

Andy Carroll sliding that late winner past the Albion, I admit to bursting out in laughter, an end to a perfect night.

Pardew is the worst manager in the premier league, he was allegedly the eighth choice :D
The board at Albion, sacked Pullis, and tried for Howe and Dyche...dreamers.

We could see Albion, Blues, and Walsall all relegated

Presuming we swap divisions, is there an Albion player we'd look to sign?

They made a similar mistake that we did with Mick. Their team is suited to play a particular style and few of their players are able to adapt to anything else. They needed to sack him last summer to give new manager a bigger transfer window and a preseason with the squad or ride him out this season and hope his “never relegated” record held up. I know they hadn’t won in a dozen games or whatever it was when they sacked him but they were still above the drop zone. Now they’ve gone and lost a relegationsix pointer. Can’t say I feel sorry for them. Need a massive influx of players this January.

Yes there's definitely something correct in what your saying.

I don't think enough thought is given to the specific nature of recruiting the right mix of Continental to British player.

Get the mix wrong and your all over the place.

Add to that a lot of British coaches haven't a clue how to get the best out of the technical/tactical continental.

You see it at Wolves continually how Nuno out thinks the opposition tactically.

To often opponents look at Wolves and think they can gain an advantage against the two in Wolves central midfield.
Nuno exploits them when they think in basic terms.

Albion don't score goals. I think their stay in the top flight is drawing to a close.
