The presidential election here in the United States - one week from today - will have a massive impact on the way this country is run, and will have repercussions throughout the world. And almost as important... ... the decision that WBA Chairman Jeremy Peace and the Albion board must make could impact the future of West Bromwich Albion Football Club for years to come. The new manager will need to earn the respect of his players quickly. He will need to assess their skills and strengths quickly and adapt them into his system. We need a manager who will make good decisions on team selection, and can tell in two months' time (or less) where we need to strengthen during the January transfer window and what players may be surplus to requirements. If the new manager fails to keep Albion in the top flight after the investments the club has made this season, it will be a nightmare. Albion fans don't want to go back to the days when we had a revolving door of managers who were unable to lift the club from the mediocrity of the First Division/Championship. So choose, Mr Peace... choose well.
