Next West Brom manager odds on to be a television star? You better believe it, bub, it has emerged.

The Baggies, beleaguered, are locked/embroiled in crunch/crisis talks concerning current boss Pepe Mel, who has failed to win any of his first six games but has managed to take a point apiece from games against Chelsea, Everton and Liverpool.

This is however not believed to be enough to convince chairman Jeremy Peace that Mel is the right man to lead the club until, well, the end of this week, really.

Peace has not shied away from decisive action in the past, having dismissed Steve Clarke earlier this season and Roberto Di Matteo in February 2011, and his house cleaner of four years last Thursday amid accusations, angrily denied, of stolen cutlery.

Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Brian, a West Bromwich Albion supporter from Sandwell, pointed out that there aren’t actually any quotes in this article, except of course for his.

He said: “There aren’t any quotes that actually suggest that Mel’s about to be sacked, anyway.

“You’ve just based this whole piece on supposition and idle guesswork, haven’t you? I thought as much.

“You journos are all the same. I bet I’m not even a real person and you’ve just made me up because you couldn’t be bothered to go out and find a real West Brom fan.

“Well, while we’re at it, you might as well quote me as saying that the next West Brom manager should be Frank Skinner or Adrian Chiles. How about that?

“I suppose you’ll find a way to spin that into something else, even though it’s already a figment of your own imagination.”

He added: “Go on, then – we’re all waiting for it.”
