Baggies need to keep Hodgson - Robson
West Bromwich Albion,
Former Albion boss and player Bryan Robson says it is vital head coach Roy Hodgson stays but understands why England may come calling.
Hodgson has revived Albion's fortunes during his 15 months in charge and they are guaranteed a third successive year of Barclays Premier League football for the first time. Robson, who masterminded Albion's 'Great Escape' from relegation six years ago when the club were bottom of the Premier League at Christmas, insists West Brom need to keep Hodgson to maintain their progress. Robson said: "I think Albion would want to keep Roy. You need a consistent basis at the club and Roy has established that basis since he has gone in. "They did well to climb out of the relegation area when he went in, steadied themselves in the league, and this year has been a good solid season for them. "There is a good base there, and if you lose the manager, all of a sudden that might be difficult to replace."
