Alan Pardew has confirmed he is to have a meeting with the board at West Brom to discuss the his future at the club after another humiliating home league loss at the hands of Leicester City.
The 8th placed former champions taught the Baggies a lesson during a 4-1 battering, in which the hosts actually took the lead.
The defeat was West Brom’s third in succession in the Premier League at the Hawthorns, with the two previous losses coming against other relegation threatened sides, Huddersfield and Southampton. Pardew’s overall losing streak is now extended five matches, with the club rooted to the bottom of the table.
Following the humiliation at the hands of Leicester, as quoted by ESPN, Pardew said:
Before you even ask me the question, will I speak to those upstairs? Yes I will, of course I will, because it’s getting difficult.
He followed by admitting he is not sure whether he will be at the club for much longer.
They might think a change is a better thing for the club, I don’t know.
Pardew hasn’t led his team to a league victory since the 2-0 win over Brighton in January, and that was one of just three victories all season. When Pardew joined at the end of November, there was hope of not only better results, but a more attacking style of play.
However, despite reasonably solid performances in draws against Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal, matters have worsened since the 56-year-old’s arrival.
West Brom find themselves at the foot of the table and eight points off survival as the run-in begins, but all is not lost just yet; the next three fixtures for them are against Bournemouth along with two home clashes against Burnley and Swansea.
There is no denying they have to win all of them, but will Pardew still be manager come the next game?
