#10 Tony Pulis

The inventor of ‘Pulis Ball’, the Welshmen joined Albion in 2015 after the dismissal of Alan Irvine.

He secured safety for West Brom in his first season, winning Premier League manager of the month in February , and he stayed at Albion for 121 games until 2017 when he was relieved of his duties, leaving Albion 17th in the Premier League.

His win percentage of 29% and his style of football flattered to deceive at the Hawthorns and although Pulis steadied the ship, his brand of football and the fact Albion did not move forward in the three seasons he was in charge place him 11th.

Classed as a permanent manager due to the length of his tenure, Jimmy Shan managed WBA after the sacking of Darren Moore.

He oversaw 12 games including the Playoff Semi Finals against Aston Villa.

He won seven of his 12 games in charge, which equates to a 58% win percentage.

It was Shan who laid the bedrock for his successors and the performance against Aston Villa at The Hawthorns is seen by many as the game which made them love football again as he instilled a passion that was missing from the team for many years.

#8 Roberto Di Matteo

Di Matteo joined in 2009 and won promotion from the second tier with WBA in 2010, steering the Baggies back to the top flight at the first time of asking.

Howver, his failure in the Premier League means that he’s lower than others on this list but in his 82 games as manager he won an impressive 40, giving him a win percentage of 48%.

Di Matteo left Albion in 2011 after a string of poor results in the Premier League.

#7 Darren Moore

Darren Moore almost oversaw another ‘Great Escape’ with famous victories over Man United and Tottenham Hotspur, but ultimately other results went against the baggies and they were relegated.

He took over in 2018 on a temporary basis but was then given the job permanently in the Championship.

After a string of home defeats Moore was sacked, despite Albion sitting 4th in the Championship.

He had a win percentage of 47% and possessed outstanding man management skills but he was, at times, overshadowed by the influence of his number two Graeme Jones which puts him lower on the list.
