West Brom board concerned by poor form
Wednesday 26 February 2014
West Bromwich Albion Head Coach Pepe Mel is coming under increasing pressure, as the club’s board is becoming increasingly concerned about their recent form, according to the Birmingham Mail.
The Spaniard has only been in the job for 47 days and six matches, but has failed to produce a victory in that time, drawing all four of his home games and losing twice away from home. It leaves Albion just a point and a place clear of the drop zone, having played a game more than Sunderland in 18th.
The West Midlands club have won just four Premier League games all season, fewer than any other club, and defeats to Aston Villa and Crystal Palace as well the failure to beat bottom club Fulham on Sunday has reportedly forced the Baggies hierarchy to hold urgent discussions about what is the best way forward.
Since Mel took over, many reports have suggested that the squad are struggling to adapt to his preferred style of play, and as West Brom begin a restructuring of their recruitment department, owner Jeremy Peace, who has a reputation for being ruthless, will be mindful that the upcoming run of games will play a major part in deciding which division the club will be playing in next season.
Albion have the upcoming weekend off, but then take on Manchester United at the Hawthorns, followed by games against relegation rivals Swansea City, Hull City, Cardiff City and Norwich City.
