West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke is grateful to be working for a patient chairman in Jeremy Peace.
Clarke is under no illusions how ruthless football can be.
â€śPeople who own a club are entitled to do what they want. Sometimes there are some human casualties,â€ť says Clarke.
â€śNow, if you get two years, youâ€™ve done well. The average time for a manager is 14 or 15 months. You have to learn to deal with it.
â€śThey donâ€™t run the club just to have two or three good years in the Premier League. They run it to sustain it over a number of years.â€ť
