Three years is a long time in football, but over that period of time at West Bromwich Albion, Tony Mowbray made a big impact.

Arriving in October 2006, Mowbray was tasked with taking the Baggies back to the Premier League, which was achieved during the 2007-08 campaign - his first full season in charge.
 
He totalled 140 games in charge at the club, triumphing in 57 of those matches, and has fond memories from his stint in the Midlands.
 
“West Brom is a great club with a good fanbase and a good squad. We’ll go there and see how good we can be," he said to iFollow Rovers when looking ahead to the game.
 
“I don’t think about games where I'm going back to an old club too much. I’m focussed on the game and going through pieces, studying West Bromwich Albion.
 
“What I do know is that we’ll be at a Premier League stadium in a Premier League atmosphere.
 
“I had a fabulous three years there, some real good times with trips to Wembley, promotion. It was my second job in football after departing Hibs and it turned out to be a really good move.
 
“Winning their first Championship in 88 years was great and for me I had a really good time. I’m looking forward to going back, but all I want is a win for us."
