West Bromwich Albion are said to be looking at Lee Bowyer to replace Slaven Bilic if the Croatian is sacked, according to The Daily Mirror.
John Percy recently revealed that Bilic faces a make-or-break game versus Tottenham this weekend – if he loses, he could well be out of the door. After all, the Baggies are without a win in their first seven games of the Premier League campaign as they remain in the bottom three.
Now, it is being said that Bowyer is on the Baggies’ radar. The former Leeds midfielder has done well so far, earning promotion with Charlton to the Championship from League One, and although they were relegated back to the third tier, they are currently third, three points behind leaders Peterborough with a game in hand.
Would you want Lee Bowyer to replace Slaven Bilic?
However, it seems the West Brom fans would be absolutely disgusted to have him as their manager. They took to Twitter to share their thoughts, with one supporter calling it ‘ridiculous’.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Bowyer
So the board are looking to move for Lee Bowyer to replace Bilic typical Albion going backwards #WBA

Nonsense I hope. Sacking a manager who you haven’t backed with sufficient funds just 7 games in to the season to be replaced by an inexperienced manager would be ridiculous.
