Alan Irvine: Looking to put his own stamp on West Brom squad

Having inherited a squad upon taking the managerial reins at The Hawthorns, Irvine is eager to put his own stamp on things.

Recruits will be required, with West Brom having turned to a new boss after narrowly avoiding the drop in 2013/14.

Irvine is working hard to ensure that those drafted in will strengthen the ranks and offer something different to those already on the books.

That is not a quick process, though, and extra care is being taken in the identification of top targets.

Irvine is, however, confident that his considered approach to transfer business will produce a positive outcome.

He said in the Birmingham Mail: "We are trawling through a lot of names.

"We're trying to make sure we do our homework in terms of the knowledge we already have - looking at videos, looking at a lot of players.

"We will continue that process. It’s obviously vitally important that you find out about the character and personality of players."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
