Will Baggies bag Cotterill?

Bryan Robson has left West Brom by mutual consent and already the speculation is mounting about his potential replacement.

Alan Curbishley was understood to be the favourite although it is now believed he is looking at other, one assumes more potentially lucrative opportunities.

The Sun even suggests today that our own Steve Cotterill is now the front runner and goes onto say in relation to Albion chairman, Jeremy Peace:

'The Baggies supremo is known to be a big fan of Burnley chief Cotterill'

Steve also gets another mention in the Guardian in a long-list of suggested candidates that also include Southend's Steve Tilson, Luton's Mike Newell and Tony Mowbray at Hibernian.

Oh dear, here we go again causing instability just as the team has begun to hit some form. Some were calling for Steve Cotterill's head after the Hartlepool and Colchester debacles, but lets hope we dont now lose the manager at this crucial stage of the season.

I believe that Cotterill has committed himself to the Clarets. He has built up the squad, with some great signings, and has steered them to 3rd in the Championship. So why move on now? So they stumbled with Hartlepool and Colchester, but there's the bigger picture to look at, being so high up the table as we are. I do hope this is only rumours floating around, and that there's no truth in it!

I agree with everything you say,Sandmancas. I hope this is just tittle tattle to sell a few newspapers. I cant personally see the attraction of going to WBA. They are not that big a club and there is probably more potential for SC to do well here and establish himself. He still has to prove himself in my opinion at this level and has an ideal opportunity this season to do just that with a better squad and all his own men! ['cept Branchy & Beast]

can't see this happening in all honesty. If anything was to happen, we would be due a hefty compo package, as he only signed a contract recently. I was surprised to see Robbo leave, but I think they will look for a manager with prem experience!
