Champions League winning assistant manager Paul Clement is considering a move back to England to take a managerial role with West Brom mentioned as a possibility.
Carlo Ancelotti's assistant at Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid was linked to the West Brom job previously and with that post open again he may be a prime candidate a second time. Coming off a dramatic come-from-behind win in the Champions League final, Clement will undoubtedly be a popular managerial candidate given that a) he is English and b) he has the unusual experience of having plied his trade outside of England (and successfully at that). If he is popular, it is unclear why he would be interested in the West Brom job when other clubs are better placed to succeed sooner. May 26 - 9:08 AM

It's hard to have a good match as a goalkeeper while giving up three goals but Ben Foster achieved that on Saturday.

With West Brom up 2-0 early, Ben Foster came to the rescue of Morgan Amalfitano when he saved Emmanuel Adebayor's weak penalty. Foster made a number of other strong saves but he couldn't prevent Jonas Olsson from scoring an own goal off of a deflected cross or two additional well-taken Spurs goals. The match ended as an extremely entertaining 3-3 draw that likely helps neither team in the standings.

Ben Foster saved a Nikica Jelavic penalty but couldn't keep out Liam Rosinior on the rebound as Hull City beat West Brom 2-0.

Ben Foster had a strong match in net despite his team losing 2-0 to Hull City. Foster made three saves as well as saving Jelavic's penalty in the 31st minute but Foster's teammates could clear the rebound from Foster's save and Liam Rosinior put Hull City up 1-0. Seven minutes later, Shane Long doubled Hull City's lead for the final score. Of interest elsewhere for West Brom and fantasy managers were starts for Graham Dorrans and Thievy.

Ben Foster is close to returning from his foot injury and may return in Week 17 against Hull City.

"Close to returning" is hardly a certainty which means that both Foster and Boaz Myhill are equally difficult to justify this week. Moving forward and starting with Boxing Day it seems likely that Foster will return to his place as the Baggies' number one. That said, the Boxing Day match is at White Hart Lane and even in a little bit of chaos that doesn't seem like a good match-up for Foster.
