Well, a former international team-mate of Damo joining as first-team coach will certainly calm those 'Delaney runs the club' rumours… :D :D

[In reality you'd hope this was Roy and Ray's choice. Good luck Steven. Should bring some fresh ideas, at least.]

Roy worked with him as a senior player at West Brom for several seasons

Yep, great spot. I was only having a bit of fun with the conspiracy theory thing. All signs to Roy being given full authority over team matters, at least for the time being, which is definitely healthy (and necessary) and suggests Reid is his choice. Looking forward to seeing what he brings. NO SHORT CORNERS EVER as a starting point, please.

IT’S fair to say that Steven Reid speaks for the entire Albion team in his summing up of Roy Hodgson’s departure.

“I’m gutted,” he said. And so are a whole host of other Baggies players.

Many of them took to Twitter to thank their head coach for the way he has masterminded two memorable seasons at The Hawthorns but Reid, pictured, was prepared to elaborate.

“There’s no two ways about it, Roy will leave a massive gap,” he said. “I’m going to miss him and, selfishly, I’m gutted that he’s gone.

“I’m 31 now and I’ve improved so much since he’s been at the club – defensively and tactically – and my knowledge of the game.

“He’s up there with the best I’ve worked with.

“I’m biased because he played me almost every time I was fit so I’m a big fan.

“As a club we developed, as a team we developed and as players too. I know I became a better player with him in charge. I’m very sad to see him go.”

....

PDP: Who has been your favourite coach to work with and why?

SR: I’ve been lucky to work with so many good managers. Roy Hodgson was a massive influence on me at West Bromwich Albion. I’d played bits and pieces at right-back but when he came in he taught me so much about the game, particularly around tactical play and defensive structure. I was approaching 30 years old and was thinking ‘how much more can I learn about the game?’, but he taught me a lot. Steve Clarke was also a great mentor. I was starting my coaching badges at the time and he was extremely helpful to me. He came in at a diffcult time, following on from Roy was not easy but he got the club to 8th in the league – he’s a top manager. We are still good friends and catch up for coffee regularly.

Scored a few goals could do with him now upfront. Did he have better hair than you ?

Reid did a few bits and bobs in the media a few years back and I found him quite impressive - came across as massively driven and focussed with a real insight into what goes on at the training ground. The antithesis of Alan Shearer's moribund displays on the MOTD sofa. I'm quite enthused by this news.

Scored an own goal for West Brom in the 2010 season in our penultimate game before Sheffield Wednesday iirc.

Been training with the squad this week.

In today's Guardian: Hodgson and his coaches, Ray Lewington and Steven Reid, have had two full training sessions to stamp some early ideas on the set-up

Saw Reid doing the pundit bit on Irish TV for last international, astute comments and analysis. Was a very good player whose career was held back by some bad injury problems. Could be a good coach

Crikey, fair enough. Maybe it was his barnet, and general air of not wanting to be in a Palace shirt that irked.

Seemed to be rated by the Reading fans, although left the club this summer somewhat suddenly.

Comes across well.

Nice to have a young coach working with the team as well.

Wonder whether he has managerial aspirations, or whether he just sees himself as a coach.

Agreed he came across very well. He seems quite ambitious and focused with his line of coaching so hopefully that positive attitude will rub off the players.

Doesn't seem like 5 minutes ago that he stopped playing. He must've had his path mapped out. Fair play to him and I hope he helps us because we need all the help we can get right now.

It's early days but I think Steve Reid will play a part in the positive bounce back for our club. He totally buys into Hodgsons methods and has that modern experience too of playing

Well done Steve Reid too.
