West Brom have appointed Sam Allardyce on an 18-month contract after sacking the manager that got them promoted, Slaven Bilić.
Bilić became the first managerial casualty of the Premier League season on Wednesday after a disappointing run of form, despite a 1-1 draw at Man City in what proved to be his last game in charge of the club.

Many fans on social media seemed angry to see him go but the board will be hoping Allardyce’s experience can keep the club in the division for at least another season.
These were the best of the tweets and jokes as WBA sack Slaven Bilić and appoint Sam Allardyce to replace him:
Well who do arsenal go for now ??

West Brom have hired Sam Allardyce to replace Slaven Bilić, who was hired by West Ham to replace Sam Allardyce. Bilić was then replaced at West Ham by David Moyes, the man who replaced the man who replaced him at West Ham. pic.twitter.com/IGkoAlOYCP

Honestly more surprised at the fact that Sam Allardyce has never managed West Brom before

Whenever I see Sam Allardyce I can't help but think that somewhere there's a police station missing its miserable desk sergeant.
