West Brom should sack manager Alan Pardew now to boost their chances of avoiding relegation from the Premier League , according to Micky Quinn.
The Baggies are languishing at the foot of the table after a 2-1 defeat to relegation rivals Huddersfield on Saturday.
Pardew was only appointed in November, taking over from Tony Pulis , but he has failed to improve West Brom’s results.
The club have won just twice under their new boss, although they have claimed draws with Arsenal, Liverpool and Everton , their defeat to Huddersfield has put a further dent in their chances for survival.
Pardew insisted this weekend that he is not concerned by the reports over his future , but it is claimed his job is already hanging by a thread and Quinn believes it is time for the chop.
Speaking on Monday’s Sports Breakfast show, the former Newcastle star said: “I thought that game against Huddersfield should have been a game to save his job, but it didn’t happen.
“I can’t see any improvement since they won those two games, in fact I was surprised he got the job on the back of being sacked by Crystal Palace , sacked by Newcastle, sacked by his last three of four clubs for not doing what was required – winning enough football matches.
“He’s a lucky lad to get a Premier League job again.

I don’t think West Brom fans can put up with that, with that result and the football they’re playing.
“If I was the chairman, I would have sacked him on Saturday night, while there are still games left to get out of trouble.
“I just can’t see a way out of this situation they’re in, other than he’s got to move on.
“They’ve got to get someone in there who is going to revitalise and motivate the players to win a football match, because their confidence is shot to bits.
“They’ve got ten games to go, they’re seven points adrift, someone can save them.
“There are still 30 points to play for, so of course they can get out of it.”
