West Brom poised to offer Tim Sherwood head coach role

Albion were today poised to offer Tim Sherwood the head coach’s job at The Hawthorns.

Tim Sherwood will be hoping his win ratio during his time as Tottenham boss will secure him another job elsewhere
Tim Sherwood poised to be offered West Brom job

The Baggies look set to open contract talks with the former Tottenham chief after he emerged as the No.1 candidate following the completion of interviews last night.

Hawthorns sources insisted that no-one had yet been offered the chance to succeed Pepe Mel.

But 45-year-old Sherwood, who left White Hart Lane at the end of last season, appears in line to be offered a deal after convincing chairman Jeremy Peace that he is the man to lead the club.

After looking like an outsider earlier in the recruitment process, the ex-Spurs and Blackburn midfielder impressed Peace and his fellow directors during a formal interview on Friday and subsequent talks over the weekend.

And, while they met with other candidates on Monday and yesterday, Sherwood has been identified as their preferred option and they hope to make progress with thrashing out a deal in the next 24 hours.

The outspoken Londoner seems likely to press for ex-Spurs team-mate Les Ferdinand to join his coaching staff while Albion are keen for former caretaker boss Keith Downing and goalkeeping coach Dean Kiely to remain on the backroom team.

French media sources last night claimed Lille manager Rene Girard had held unsuccessful talks over taking over at The Hawthorns but the former Montpellier coach now looks set to stay in France.

Meanwhile, Albion fans have handed the club a massive show of support by matching last year’s season-ticket sales despite a nightmare 12 months.

The club today praised the Hawthorns faithful as they announced 16,000 season tickets have been sold – almost identical to 2013.

The sales boost comes despite a woeful season that saw the club avoid relegation to the Championship by just three points.

Let's hope it happens.

JP will have demonstrated that he does not always take the economical option.

Sherwood will attract good players to the club.

The View From Baggy Bottom

'There's many a slip between cup and lip'.

Until all the t's are crossed and the i's are dotted, this is a dangerous time where we could still end up with egg on our faces.

It now seems obvious that TS is the chosen one and it would be difficult to' row back' now if things go wrong at the last second and pretend that someone else was in fact the first choice.

Get it done quickly now and announce it officially asap.

Happy Days!!

Boing Boing!!

I very much agree - although I am hopeful that over the course of the interview and "subsequent conversations", any potential issues that would impact on the offer being made/accepted would have been flagged already. Fingers crossed that the fact that his name alone (aside from Girard's) has been released to the media (at least I think that is what happened) at this stage means they are confident of wrapping this up soon.

nik.hare1

and coming from surrey, do you know anything about football?

oh yeah, your a glory hunter.

just with the wrong team.

here are some choices- man city/liverpool/man utd/chelski, enjoy

We Only Need One Half!

I dun know mate, Terry Connor was apparently the first choice all along after the wulfies were turned down by several managers, and they believed that!

The View From Baggy Bottom

WONOH,

He was first choice. OURS, and it worked out a treat.

TVFB♥B

We Only Need One Half!

Good one ;-)

nik.hare1

no he was'nt

nik.hare1

Won oh stop the naughty stuff, you know o'connor was a desperate last throw of the dice by a 2 blokes who would'nt know a tactical set up if it hit them on the nose.

As for sheer wood, good choice, but as Clarke and mel found out , peace controls everything even burton , so unless he opens them purse strings, it will be a surprise if WBA do anything next season.

Captain Mardon International

Ref your last comment. - well I can take that as not getting relegated then, which I suppose is a relief.

We Only Need One Half!

Hiya Nik, dont tell anyone has I have a self imposed'ish' ban on talking to wulfies for 3 weeks, just to see what happens, but seeing your one of the good guys I will make an exception.

I had previously stated I have my doubts whether Sherwood and J.P. can work together, because as you rightly say J.P. does control everything, up till now that is, it looks likely we are going in a radically different direction from previous appointments, i.e. no argument over back room staff, no, what were considered by some to be yes men (you certainly cant accuse Sherwood of that) so who knows? J.P. has already said he recognises the mistakes he made last year, so hopefully, mine and yours estimations will turn out to be wrong.

He's already stopped the negative lot, and wulfies, in their tracks who were insisting it would be Downing because he would go for the cheap option.

Don't take it too much to heart when I have a pop at wulfies on our 'own' pages Nik, I have no argument with your normal wulfves, and, after all, if your idiots didn't come on here spouting jealous bile and nonsense, I wouldn't be able to respond to it, would I.

Your knows I love them wulfies, they are the comedy gift that just keeps giving ;-)

p.s. remember, yow aint sin me, roite!

CantelloRocket 78

That's what I like about the E&S-

always first to grab the 'exclusive' news.

They just have a tendency to publish it on the wrong day, that's all.......

Baggiescomeon

I know what you're saying mate, "nightmare 12 months", Did we get relegated twice then, NO, and then the "a woeful season" comment, instead of, an underachieving one, never mind, whoever comes in they will be managing a Premiership team, end off.

nik.hare1

and so will whoever comes in to manage hull/norwich!!!!

your point? i know , you survived.......

We Only Need One Half!

CR, they are saying all the right words, just not necessarily in the right order!

WONOH,

you mean the 'Express and Star' could be the latest incarnation of 'Morecambe and Wise'.....?

So what do you think of it so far?

........rubbish!!!

CantelloRocket 78

Now they've put me in the 'sin bin' an' took me name off me.......

Marc

Sherwood it is then?

The Voice of Reason

He should be able to do the business from our point of view. Sherwood is a complete clown.

Jack the Hat

The Voice of Reason,

I will have to Double Drop that remark, although you are well qualified to talk on failed Head Coach's.

Why should he do business from wolves point of view Dog-Head. Oh! sorry, forgot you were trying to pass yourself off as one of us, just like the other thick bricks that come over here. L☺Ls.

BOING~~~~BOING~~~~J♣H.

The Voice of Reason

It must be the fact that I'm not missing any teeth and have the correct number of digits on each hand that gave it away. There's no fooling you is there Jack?

Jeremy just wants a head coach who will match his stated ambitions for the club, i.e. mid table Championship. A few poor signings and some gear-grinding clichés from "Cockney Tim Nice but Dim" will do the trick.

We Only Need One Half!

JtH, didnt you know, a Millwall manager who just escaped relegation is far better than one who got his last team in Europe.

That passes for logic, in Wolvo.

nik.hare1

So wonoh are you saying, sherwood took spurs from bottom of league to European places?

CantelloRocket 78

WONOH,

so what're yer saying-

a guy who captained his team to the premiership title, played for England, then recorded the highest-ever win percentage as Head Coach of a top prem club-

or a relatively unknown second-rater, who's greatest achieve is getting a club out the third division....?

Timmy or Benny?

Even Harry Hill wouldn't suggest 'FIGHT!'- Benny Jackett would have as much chance of winning as Benny Hill........

We Only Need One Half!

No Nik, I'm not saying that, what I am saying is a manager who can get a team into Europe with his first attempt has to be better than a guy who has never finished above 8th in The Championship in ten attempts.

You have to admit, thats a logical conclusion.

p.s. are you saying Kenny took you from the bottom of the League to promotion?

nik.hare1

Yes won oh, when you could arguably say that WWfc didn't even have a team and we're headed for the conference, so k j did indeed take WWfc from no where to the top.

1877wolf

Actually, he wasn't captain when Blackburn won the Premier League.

He's had 5 months experience as a manager. He did OK but failed to reach their objective, failed to get the job permanently, failed to convince the chairman to trust him with funds, embarresed the club with his touchline dramas, ridiculous interviews and the players wanted him gone.

He is now at a club in a very difficult situation but his objective will be to stay up but I'm sure Kiely and Downing will help assist him to lose his job soon enough.

We Only Need One Half!

Nik, but you have to admit, having Premiership players (allegedly?) at his disposal in the 3rd tier, plus a monetary advantage of Premier League Parachute payments that allowed you to financially bully all the other clubs, such has buying the Leagues top scorer than not playing him just to stop other teams getting him rather took the sting out of it and eased the situation.

Be honest, not really a managerial achievement is it? I would expect any manager to win a league with those advantages? wouldn't you?

Given he has never finished above 8th in the league your in now, even after several attempts (though you we still have a financial advantage over many clubs again this season due to Parachute payments) lets wait and see if you still think he's a whizz come the end of next season now the playing field has been levelled out some what, that is, if he is still with you after Xmas.

nik.hare1

wonoh, the premiership players you mention did not play one game between them and as for parachute payments, do you think norwich,cardiff and fulham will put the money in the bank?

obviously they will use it to their advantage

as for not a managerial achievment! champions of any league, when you were headed for the conference is a miracle(just ask

orient, they were top and know that league more than anyone and finished as bridesmaids,

as for level playing fields, personllly i may be sometimes rosetinted in my views but even i know that a top 6 finish for wwfc will be incredible, but would be equally satisfied with a mid table finish.

Jack, the irony of it ! This idiot calls himself 'The Voice of Reason'. 'From OUR point of view' is correct as a Wulfie as his only dream left is Baggies to fail. It must have driven him mad doing the Double Drop.

CantelloRocket 78

It's actually the 'voice of a raisin', givin' everybody the pip.....

Oh jth, you just might get your chance in the f.a.cup just like Luton who went on to win the trophy after beating WWfc,......oh hang on....lol

Johneboywolves

The Baggies couldn't batter fish Jack and everybody knows it. These are new times and my guess is that Albion won't be able to produce the goods come the new season (everybody knows that too).

I get the smell of foolish optimism hiding fear and worry every time I come over here.

But as a true sportsman I would like to wish everybody in Sandwell Borough all the very best for the forthcoming season. We will all be watching with great interest.

Is that like your lot seriously believed they would be playing us next season lol

Never mind, always the Cup, do you remember the score last time we met? lol

Jack the Hat

Johneb,

They are only new times for wolves as they have moved up into the unknown. Albion have been in the same high place for the fifth season coming.

Albion couldn't batter fish!, what does that say about your club?.

About time Mr. Morgan paid your club's mossive £30,000,000 debts.

Gorra loff ay ya?.

Oh Johnny Oh, used to be a daft song back in 1940. And you sir, leave yourself WIDE open every time you venture on to our site.

'Couldn't batter fish' Wolves 1 - Baggies 5

You 'KNOW' we won't produce the goods but you also say 'my guess'. That's as certain as I'd expect you to be.

'I get the smell of foolish optimism' etc....that stink just follows you around. IT'S BEHIND YOU in your own pantomime.

WE shall also be watching YOU with great interest whenever we need cheering up.

mrgobby

Sherwood comes across as a thinker and a grafter, i hope he gets the gig, seems to have been linked with the Albion for quite a while. Good luck to him

KP2015

Great news on the season ticket sales, just think if we'd had an exciting new manager in place and and new players signed up the figure could have been higher.

Interesting that this news is buried in another story by the E&S.... far too positive for a headline ... must be frustrating for you that the constant negative reporting hasn't dented our support.

If it is to be a Sherwood/Ferdinand management team hopefully they'll attract top talent and a Lukaku type loan signing.

BURNLEY BAGGIE

I think most Baggies fans had TS in there top 3 so i think most will be happy with his appointment.

It does have an element of risk and is in the mold of the SC appointment but his 6 months at Spurs will have helped.

He is a likable and passionate chap (and slightly eccentric) so yes why not lets give him a go.

One note of caution he is also ambitious and ultimately will only use Albion as stepping stone to bigger things.

mrgobby

Thought he had links with Forest

Mike Baggies Fan (Coseley)

Lets hope we get a new Head coach on board in the next 24 hours as we are running out of time and we need to get some one settled as we do not want to miss out on replacement signings that we need to strengthen the squad. I feel its worth a chance as I think Tim would sort out our needs and would stand up for getting what he wants to get our club back to winning ways.

We Only Need One Half!

Have yow double checked with the Birmingham Mail yet E&D?

On another note, who are these articles written for? is there anyone who reads these pages unaware of that last sentence, if the answer is no, has I strongly suspect, why keep repeating such lines E&D, other than to just have a pop?

The only valid reason is that it fills column inches. Don't forget that they have a large number of square inches of paper to put what they call news on. The digital edition and the web service hasn't got the same constraints and anyway, is mainly a reprint of the printed paper.

Hi Medway long time no speak, I dont see that has a valid reason myself, but seeing no ones come up with anything better you win the sweeties.

Cyril

Medway, did your KT88 blow its top cap off ?

Medway Baggie

Ahh, Cyril, a Kink-less tetrode using a B9A base hey...didn't think they had top caps, but I prefer EL84's myself.

Kev, no my friend, weren't nothing to talk about.

Golf One Charlie Bravo Kilo

Cyril

Medway, the KT88 was a very big bottle, top cap anode, beam tetrode and capable of 150 watts of rf in Class C. I used to run one on all Short Wave Ham Bands back in 1958 to 62 modulated with 75 watts audio. All home built except the front end band selector. One day I was adjusting the drive to this big sod and I touched the top cap. It had around 700 volts DC and a packet of rf. I saw the most beautiful 'blue' fluorescent just before I sank quickly to the floor. A little while later I went in for 10 watt max as a safer option. Happy days.

Cyril

Medway, I think the KT88 base was International Octal, the favourite back then. The Yanks loved that valve.

Cyril

Back in the day I could tell you what a valve was from the code, you remember E is a 6.3v parallel heater, L was an output pentode, 8 was a B9A base an the last number the valve identifier, but I've forgotten most of that so I had to look it up. Not having used KT88's all the pictures I came across didn't have an anode cap and I'd already posted when I found another site which said that the KT series didn't follow the normal valve nomenture ie first digit being the valve base.

WONOH, looks like you'll have to give my sweeties to Cyril as he has shown up my lack of research.

Golf One Charlie Bravo Kilo

Cyril

Medway, I was honestly using my memory only as I can't find any valve books now.

Or the RSGB or ARRL handbooks both of which were prizes from Tech. God, I was SO into that stuff back then. I ate, slept and dreamt it. But it was the trigger that got me into lecturing so all worth it.

Certainly did mate, Doesn't pay to ignore F.F.P.D. when you are £30,000,000 in debt then have your parachute payments stopped also to have a Bull in your club, now does it; then up the wage bill by bringing in freebies before getting rid of big earners.

I have to say, I'm glad the E&D have seen fit to mention the essential point that we had a 'woeful season, and only just avoided relegation', because I somehow missed the other 200 times they casually blasted it out from the headlines.

So it looks like it is Tim Sherwood for the job, imo a good choice young ambitious although outspoken. Some might say in the same mould as Brian Clough, a bit of a marmite character love him or hate him no grey area either black or white. But a good choice who can do some moving and shaking and atract young ambitious players he can mould to his ideas and game plays.

Ay chaps, Whilst walking through Memphis HENNESSEY, with my Albion top on, a bloke who worked closely with Elvis, spotted me in the ground s of Elvis's House. He said," Ay up m8, how am ya, Elvis visited a chippy in your area and he loved it, He was an Albion fan". "I'll tell u summat our kid, he was really shocked by the place down the road, WUL Something"?, He explained, that Elvis was so taken aback when he saw the weird folk with dungarees and bare feet, and that pound for pound they were similar to the USA outback folk, THE KLAMPETTS, I said "yeah for sure, we call em DINGLES in the UK",. "Hey, that rings a bell, You know, Elvis the King was so appalled kiddo, that he penned a tune, come this way son", so I followed. He led me to the recording studio in the mansion and played me this gem, IN THE NETTO. and crikey, that Elvis was spot on. He did say, that because the single was released in the USA first, the lyrics where slightly changed. The bloke said to appreciate the piece, put on the version on YouTube with lyrics in the background and it will just flow. Here the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2En0ZyjQgU4. Please check it out chaps and tell me what u think. I was stunned. The man is a LEGEND.

As the snow flies

On a cold and grey wolbinyampton mornin

and a poor little baby dingle is born

And his mama cries

It's another hungry dingle to feed

IN THE NETTO

Dingles don't you understand

this Childs got an inbred hand

he will grow to be a thick young dingle some day

Take a look at you and me

are we to blind to see

do we simply turn our dog heads and look the other way.

2nd verse

As the baggies turn

a hungry little bootneck wolf with a runny nose

So he starts to roam the bins at night

and he learns how to dip and learns how to fight

IN THE NETTO

then one night in desperation

the thick dingle breaks away

He buys a bun and steals a bin

Tries to run but he don't get far

And his mama cries

as the baggies gather round

a thick young dingle

face down on the street with a bun in his hand

IN THE NETTO

As the dingles go down 5-1

on a cold and grey wolbinyampton mornin

and another poor baby dingle is born

IN THE NETTO

And his mama cries

ELVIS was cool he was a baggie. BOING BOING LOL

There will be special remix track featuring George Berry "my dingle ing"

Capey,

it sure looks like you've rattled a few cages-

it seems the 'remember us?, we were once great in the 50s' brigade can't stay away from here - much like kids staring wide-eyed in a sweet shop window at things they crave, but can't have........

capehill

Rocket,They can't help believing, oops that they are in the chumpionship, and could drop again next season. I don't get the bit where they currently believe that they are mossiver than us. Never have I come across so much delusion, ever. If we where in the same division, then maybe I could say,ok fairplay, but then on the other hand ,when we was, didn't we kick there back doors in 1-5...............boing boing

CantelloRocket 78

Capey,

to be honest mate, I started watching the Baggies regularly as a young lad 50 years ago, way back in October 1964-

that month, Albion beat Liverpool 3-0, Villa 1-0 ( the BIG local clash ) and Wolves, err.....5-1, would you believe? - oh, plus the Baggies and Villa were the top West Midlands clubs, Wolves and Blues were predictably relegated....lol.

So 50 years later, nothing's really changed, and for the majority of those years it's been Villa and the Baggies looking downwards at the others-

I only talk to Wolves fans because they come over here all the time interrupting us, otherwise I ain't too bothered with 'em-

where I live, it's about 70 per cent Baggies fans, 27 per cent Villa, 2 per cent Blues, and 1 per cent Wolves - or as we call 'em, the Lib-Dems.......:-)

p.s. - next Elvis song, how about 'Way Down'......? ;-)

AndyH

Hi mate,

the E&D have been recycling the same Sherwood story now for days....if/when he signs it'll be a case of "not news".....but your dingle baiting has reached new levels of genius....there must be a way you could actually record your version and post it mate....absolute class....

as well as Elvis...there must be a proper country and western song (including banjos...) that could be "adapted" for our country cousins down in Staffs...

cheers mate

Tim Sherwood insists he has no respect for Benfica manager Jorge Jesus,

Interesting ? Just taken this from a previous meeting between these guys.

Hopefully all will be sorted soon.

Boing Boing.

CantelloRocket 78

Cov,

it seems Jorge Jesus held three fingers up to the away fans when Benfica went 3-1 up against Spurs at White Hart Lane, and TS took offence to the gesture-

whether there was any 'previous' between them, I couldn't say......

capehill

Elderado the kost a del klampett, living in the past, u supported the baggies, back to Netto for u, yeeeeeehaaaaa, surprised your no neck no boots mate turned up as well, he has been so embarrassed since clap,clap clap, lol lol, I'll remind him tomorrow if I get two minutes, boing boing lol

Have you ever considered using your considerable talent for the better of WBA, I've of the opinion the variation of songs at home games leaves a lot too be desired and your talent would be extremely useful in changing that.

I'm in the UK a couple of times in the 3 weeks, let me know if your interested in meeting up for a chat too swap ideas?

Absolutely m8, give me a shout, and we will sort sommat, like the amicable baggies that we are. boing boing

ROBERTO MANCINI has left Galatasaray after just nine months in charge.

Thought I had better beat E&D to the punch as he could be a possible latecomer . L☺Ls.

jock, if moyes said no, what the hell do you think mancine would say? look i know its difficult passing the time as an oap but you could at least ditch ceefax........

It's obvious the majority of Baggies fans who post on the these boards are not in agreement with the few who are of the opinion that the constant obsession with the Dingles is one of the reasons why there has been a steady decline in numbers of fans expressing their views.

After a recent decline in Dingle based posts, too which comments of relief and approval were posted, it now seems it was a false dawn and I'm sorry for my involvement in trying too take away one of your pleasures, I honestly had best intentions in mind with my part in the campaign.

At the time of this post there were 114 comments, 25 of which were Dingle based,incredibly 14 from one poster.

Everyone agrees that fans are free to express their opinion so it seems there are many who want too talk about Dingles on WBA sites, carry on lads, fill ya boots.

I noticed last night that Jorge Jesus completely disappeared from the betting - leaving just one man way, way out front.......

Rocket,Jack,

Sherwood, Mancini or Jesus! Not a bad final three really, but if it wasn't for the local history I'm sure we would have really wanted to go for Kenny Jackett. Oh well, we can dream eh!
