West Brom may wait until New Year’s before deciding Alan Irvine’s future

According to BBC Sport, West Bromwich Albion chairman Jeremy Peace may wait until the Baggies’ New Year clash against West Ham before making a decision on manager Alan Irvine’s future.

The 56-year-old, appointed in the summer, was not a popular choice pending his initial arrival, and things haven’t gone too well mid-way through his debut campaign. The Midlands club are currently just one point above the drop zone, while coming off the back of three consecutive Premier League defeats.

Albion have lost seven of their previous nine games in the top flight, which has piled the pressure on the head coach. But Irvine is said to be held in high regard by the club chairman, as well as the players, despite such a poor start to the campaign. West Brom face West Ham on New Year’s Day, which could well be the deciding game.
