Last roll of the dice with 14 games remaining worth a shot

 

I am hoping its a bit more than that.

Hopefully we have made this appointment looking towards next season rather than just a gamble on stopping up this season.

Think this is a good appointment but think we have some stormy waters ahead for a couple of years even if Chansiri runs the club better.

Not a happy bunch are they but at least the large majority rated him and didn't want him to go.

One even wishing us good luck 🙊

Now is the time for all Wednesday fans to unite and get behind our new manager Darren Moore and despite the results of the coming matches support his decision making and cut him some slack. He’ll need time and if DC gives him that time I believe we could well have got ourselves a good, ambitious and young manager who could lead us to a good future. At last I think we can start to look forward.

Smart appointment for us. Knows League One for a start, some Prem experience, done a good job at Donny... I just hope he's not out the door at the end of the season if (when) we don't stay up. He might just know the craic.

Doncaster Rovers fans who know these things are saying Donny Rovers have recieved 'adequate compensation'

Yep! Haha six figure sum for him and his assistant. According to Dom. 

 

That will teach me for believing rumours and not reading about the appointment. 

 

I'll get mi coat.

Plays great stuff, Infectious personality and if or when we go down I think he is the man to bring us back. Very Happy with this! Welcome and good luck Darren.

Very surprised and quite pleased with this.

 

Nice to see the majority of posts are positive and supportive. The majority of appointments over the last few years seem divisive from her off.

Darren Moore Managerial career

 

West Bromwich Albion 

On 2 April 2018, West Bromwich Albion manager Alan Pardew, was dismissed from his post after a run of poor results, leaving them bottom of the Premier League and ten points from safety.

 

Moore was then appointed as caretaker manager, taking charge of all current first team affairs until the end of the season. This made him the first ever Jamaican to manage in the Premier League.

 

Under his leadership, West Brom went undefeated in April, a run that included a 1–0 away win against Manchester United – handing the league title to United's arch-rivals Manchester City, in part earning Moore the Premier League Manager of the Month honour

 

However, West Brom were relegated from the Premier League later that day following Southampton's win against Swansea City, ending the club's eight-year tenure in the top-flight.

After much speculation over who would become the next permanent manager of West Bromwich Albion, on 18 May 2018, Moore was appointed as the permanent head coach, after impressing during his caretaker spell with the Baggies.

 

The Baggies walked into the new Championship season as firm favourites for promotion, and by Moore's time of departure, were sat in fourth place and in contention for qualification for the promotion play-offs.

 

 On 9 March 2019, Moore was sacked by the club, after a negative string of home results.

 

James Shan temporarily replaced Moore in caretaker charge, leading them to the play-off semi-finals against eventual winners Aston Villa, suffering defeat.[29] Slaven Bilić was appointed as Moore's permanent successor in June 2019.

 

Doncaster Rovers

On 10 July 2019, Moore was appointed as the new manager of League One side Doncaster Rovers, replacing Grant McCann, who left to take charge of Hull City in the Championship.

 

Sheffield Wednesday

On 1 March 2021, Moore left Doncaster with them in the League One play-off positions to join Sheffield Wednesday, sitting inside the Championship relegation zone.

Feels a little like the Monk appointment to me, when there were arguably better alternatives available. I’d have preferred Cook, who was available without the need to pay compensation and actually has some achievements on his managerial record.

He was known at West Brom as ‘Big Dave’ so this presents us with a quandary!

 

A few of my friends are Baggies fans and they are saying whatever we do, we should steer clear of bringing in Jones as his assistant, suggesting that perhaps we should bring in Chris Brunt as his assistant?
