Irvine showing he can perform as Coach
Alan Irvine’s appointment as the new coach of West Bromwich Albion came as a surprise to many fans of the Premier League club taking into consideration all the options of managers that were available but instead the officials of the club opted to go with someone who has never before coached a club in the Premier League.
Irvine was delegated with the role of coaching West Bromwich Albion on June 14 of the ongoing year and during the first few months it took some time for positive results to be seen as the club sustained successive draws with Sunderland and Southampton before losing with Swansea City and Everton.
Draws and defeats were the initial results of West Bromwich Albion under the guidance of Alan Irvine with the pressure starting to build up for the Scottish manager who needed to start collecting points in the Premier League and avoid sinking into the bottom spots of the league.
A 1-0 triumph over Tottenham Hotspurs gave Alan Irvine room to breathe for the first time of his Premier League coaching career and things turned even better with a convincing 4-0 triumph against Burnley.
With successive Premier League victories over Tottenham and Burnley, West Bromwich Albion has climbed a few spots in the English League and is located in rather comfortable position in the middle section.
Alan Irvine is also eyeing to get West Bromwich Albion into the quarter-finals of the League Cup. West Bromwich played a thrilling and dramatic League Cup match against Hull City which concluded with the team of Alan Irvine securing a late victory and now the Scottish manager is hoping the positive results continue arriving as he wants to push West Bromwich Albion into the next stages of the Capital One Cup.
