As Sunderland begin life without Paolo Di Canio BBC Sport looks at how he became the latest victim of the West Brom manager curse.
In recent seasons Mick McCarthy, Chris Hughton, Andre Villas-Boas, Roberto Di Matteo and Di Canio all played their last Premier League match against the Baggies before being shown the door at their respective clubs.
West Brom have struggled initially this season, their 3-0 victory over Sunderland was their first of the 2013-14 campaign.
