Gary Megson managed the club between 2000 and 2004 and had a win percentage of 42.53 in over 221 matches. Megson guided the club to Premier League promotion twice during his tenure with the club.

Megson’s success was remarkable in the sense that he had an uneasy relationship with the chairman. Following the strained relationship with chairman Jeremy Peace, Megson announced that he would not sign a new contract if the club offered one. He was sacked soon after.

Vic Buckingham became the manager of the Baggies in 1953, having impressed at Bradford Park Avenue. Under him, West Brom became one of the best clubs in the country. In the 1953-54 campaign, WBA not only won the FA Cup but were also runners-up in the First Division, finishing behind Wolves.

He managed the club for over 300 games and had a win percentage of 43.19. He decided to leave the Hawthorns in 1959 to join Ajax, a club very little known then. The move was considered drastic at that point in time. However, he discovered a teenager called Cruyff and nurtured him to become one of the greatest players ever.
