EPL: Manager Pardew leaves rock-bottom West Brom

Burnley win piles on pressure – Can Arsenal cope?

Burnley win piles on pressure – Can Arsenal cope?

Alan Pardew has left struggling Premier League club West Brom as manager, the club announced on Monday.

Pardew was appointed in late November after the dismissal of Tony Pulis, his appointment coming due to the support of technical director Nick Hammond.

The Baggies went into the match bottom of the Premier League and 10 points adrift of safety, staring into the abyss of relegation after seven successive defeats.

A club statement confirmed Pardew and assistant head coach John Carver had departed the club, with first-team coach Darren Moore placed in charge of the first-team "until further notice".

'The Club will not be making any further comment at this time'.

8 - points for West Brom in 18 league games under Pardew, compared to 12 from 14 before he took over. Click any of these buttons below!

And finally anyone who actually believes British managers aren't given a chance in the Premier League is a total fool in a season where Mark Hughes, David Moyes, Sam Allardyce, Roy Hodgson and Pards himself have all got jobs.

Alan Pardew put West Brom's poor first-half display in the defeat to Burnley down to nerves and "massive pressure".

Pardew also previously managed Newcastle United, West Ham United, Southampton, Reading and Charlton Athletic.

Albion's Chinese owner Guochuan Lai recently sacked Albion's chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman. Jake Livermore, also an England player, and reserve goalkeeper Boaz Myhill made up the "Cab Four" which were to damage Pardew so badly.
