Baggies look to Mowbray

As a Baggies fan I was a little bit relieved that the club at last managed to get a manager to replace Bryan Robson in the form of Tony Mowbray. The team has been doing well since Robson's departure and now lie a comfortable fourth on the table and just seven points from the top team Cardiff.

I never doubted whether Robson would be able to get promotion because he has a good record of getting promotions with Middlesborough. So I was surprised when he was shown the door after not so good results and the worst for me being the first team to lose to Sunderland.

My only issue with Robson is that I felt that once the team got promoted he wouldn't then be able to sustain it in the Premiership and before long the team becomes a yo-yo team going in and out of the Premiership which is clearly not good.

Now comes in Mowbray. From what I have read from BBC's 606 he has done a good job at Easter Road and Hibs would rather wish he stayed. Well, that sounds good.

With the team we have at the Hawthorns we should get promotion at the end of the season even if it means going through the play-offs but the problem is that I am not so sure whether we now have a manager who is capable of making the Baggies stay there without flirting too much with relegation.

This is I think more than anything else is the challenge that will face Mowbray as he takes the reigns at the Hawthorns.

Wasn't Bryan Robson an English legend a while ago ? An injection of money is key that might keep them there if they get promoted.

Yes, Tyndale, Robson as a player was very good but I think it doesn't always translate that if you were a great player then you turn out to be a great coach or manager.

I am also hoping that this time if the club gets promoted they will get some good quality players to help preserve premiership status.

He's a good coach.
