Pardew admitted he is still shocked that the Baggies axed Steve Clarke.
He said: "I was very disappointed by that decision, especially as his No.2 Kevin Keen was my assistant at West Ham.
"I'm very sad I won't be meeting the two of them. West Brom are a good team and I think they have been galvanised by what happened to Steve."
