Since 2000, West Brom have had 14 permanent managers and another eight who have managed less than ten competitive games for the club.

One, however, crosses the category divide and has held the top job at The Hawthorns both temporarily and permanently at different times in his career.

There have been highs and lows for the club, who at a times yo-yo’d between divisions, but in this list we will rank the West Brom managers since the turn of the millennium from best to worst.

Frank Burrows was an assistant manager at Albion for four years between 2000 and 2004.

He was given the top job in October 2004 on a temporary basis and drew one and lost one of his games against Southampton away, and Chelsea at home, where it finished 2-2 and 1-4 respectively.

With a win percentage of 0%, he finishes last in this list.

#21 Michael Appleton

Michael Appleton was an Albion player until he retired in 2003. Over a five year period he worked his way up through the youth levels and was appointed as assistant manager in 2009.

He took over as manager for a single game in 2011 against West Ham United at The Hawthorns.

Appleton’s Baggies were 3-0 to the good at half-time but the game ended 3-3 meaning Appleton ended up with a 0% win percentage.

#20 Rob Kelly

Rob Kelly was assistant manager for WBA during the 2014-15 season. He was hired on a temporary basis with Dean Kiely.

In his single game as manager, West Brom drew 1-1 at Upton Park. He had a win percentage of 0%, but only managed a single game so it is difficult to place him in this list. He is only higher than Michael Appleton due to him gaining his result away from home.

#19 Gary Megson (Caretaker spell)

Gary Megson returned to Albion in 2017 as assistant manager; however, in November of that year he was given the reins for the second time in his career, this time on a temporary basis.

His two games resulted in two points, following two draws against Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur.

A 0% win percentage in his second spell places the Albion legend low in this list.
