Burgess does not believe that Pardew is the man to save Albion from relegation. And he also believes that club legend McInnes would be a great appointment.
"Appy and Shakey have coached the youth teams and reserve teams before, they've experienced the club on the playing side and the coaching side.
"You would get a lot of fans looking at Shakey's record at Leicester. I thought he did a half-decent job there, it's not like he had two years to be judged on.
"The fact he turned the Sunderland job down, perhaps it's just the right time for this one.
"I'd have no qualms if either or all of those were involved. I don't see how it could be any worse. It can't be."
