Alan Pardew set for crunch talks with West Brom board

West Brom gaffer Alan Pardew will feel like a naughty school kid sent in front of the headmaster today when he’s called into the Baggies boardroom.

Rumours are rife that West Brom are set to wield the managerial axe for the second time in just over three months following a sorry streak of seven successive defeats in all competitions.

Pardew, the odds-on favourite for the sack, has endured an absolute stinker since replacing Tony Pulis in November. The Englishman has scraped together only one win from 16 league games, collecting a meagre eight points, which leaves the Baggies rock-bottom of the table.

Saturday’s 4-1 hammering at home to Leicester City was the club’s six successive defeat, meaning Pardew’s men are eight points adrift of safety with eight games to go.

The West Brom board will today (Monday) decide whether they stick with Pardew or instead make a change in order to boost their faint hopes of survival, with the 56-year-old admitting that change could be a “better thing for the club”.

However, a lack of available high-quality replacements could work in Pardew’s favour. Marco Silva is currently the evens frontrunner, but given West Brom’s position in the table the Portuguese coach is unlikely to be attracted by the post, especially given that he already has one Premier League relegation on his CV - with Hull last season.

Harry Redknapp is next in the running at 5/1. The veteran gaffer memorably saved Birmingham City from Championship relegation last term, winning two of the club’s final three games, and he would no doubt jump at the chance to venture back into the Premier League dugout with the Baggies.

Garry Monk, 7/1, took charge of Birmingham last week, while Derek McInnes (12/1) is employed at Aberdeen. Former top-flight managers Slaven Bilic and Mark Hughes are both available, but again they are both unlikely to be too keen on the job, meaning Gary Megson could prove to be the best bet at 14/1.
