Clarke Lands Hawthorns Job

According to some very good sources the ex-Chelsea loyal servant, Steve Clarke, is set to be handed his first managerial role.

Clarke who served Chelsea both as a player and on the managerial team has been #2 at several clubs including Chelsea, West Ham and Liverpool, but following the change in the managerial regime at Liverpool he`s taken this opportunity to jump into the hit-seat for the first time.

Here at Vital Chelsea we expect Steve to do a decent job at West Bromwich Albion and we look forward to our paths crossing in the near future.

Felt he was responsible for our defensive effort under Mourinho and could be an interesting appointment. Could he be another ex-Chelsea player of the 90's to go on and do a good job in management? Maybe we should have a coaching team of Di Matteo, Clarke, Wise, Poyet, Pet Rescue, Gullit, Vialli and Newton.

Good luck to him. I would love to have had him back at the Bridge as a no. 2 but it is only fair that he has his crack at management now.

Steve was a good bloke, but i lost a tiny bit of respect for him when he went Liverpool. When he went West Ham with Zola i could understand the decision, but i felt different when he went to Liverpool.

I dont think west brom would want to take such risk. they sacked RDM cos of their little slump in form out of fear of relegation. but i ve no doubt that clarke will make an excellent manager. he has learnt his trade with one of d best managers(mourinho) and has gain experience with liverpool. he wont be making d same mistakes daglish made obiviously. i wish him well & i hope he gets d job.

@Mr Tommy Chelsea, he is a professional ffs. what matters is that he gave us his best when he served us as a player & an assistant manager. there was a job offer from liverpool & he took it rather than remain unemployed. if he had ditched chelsea for liverpool then it ve been a different ball game.

If Clarkey didn't celebrate the inbred scousers would be burning effigies of the man. Good luck to him.

Mr Tommy Chelsea, he is just doing a job and trying to make the best career possible for himself. If football fans were clever enough to understand that players are professionals with their own careers to think about, families to provide for etc. and not necessarily fans of the club for which they play, then they might see things a bit more clearly. Clarke may feel affection for Chelsea having played and coached there so long, I hope so, but to suggest that he should sacrifice his career so as not to offend Chelsea fans really is incredibly short sighted.

It is a big step up and will be very interesting to see what happens, but as ever i wish him the very best of luck (except against us!). He never backed down from anything or anyone as a player and had glorious years as a #2. Good luck Steve.
