​Quinny: West Brom can avoid relegation - if they sack Pardew

Former Newcastle player Micky Quinn believes there is only one route for West Bromwich Albion to avoid relegation – getting rid of the manager.

There is some disagreement among those on the West Brom board about how to deal with Pardew.

Some want him gone, while others feel there is no one better who would take the job on such short notice.

But Quinn believes that Pardew must go.

"I thought that game against Huddersfield should have been a game to save his job, but it didn't happen," he said.

"I can't see any improvement since they won those two games, in fact I was surprised he got the job on the back of being sacked by Crystal Palace, sacked by Newcastle, sacked by his last three of four clubs for not doing what was required – winning enough football matches.

"He's a lucky lad to get a Premier League job again.

"I don't think West Brom fans can put up with that, with that result and the football they're playing.

"If I was the chairman, I would have sacked him on Saturday night, while there are still games left to get out of trouble.

"I just can't see a way out of this situation they're in, other than he's got to move on.

"They've got to get someone in there who is going to revitalise and motivate the players to win a football match, because their confidence is shot to bits.

"They've got ten games to go, they're seven points adrift, someone can save them.

"There are still 30 points to play for, so of course they can get out of it."
