Tony Pulis
 
 
The key to achieving success is keeping this man at our club and giving him the tools to help him get us into the premier league and keeping us there.
I can't think of another manager we could attract who would be better suited to helping us get to where we want to be.
I will probably get pelters for this as it's not a fashionable viewpoint to rate him but I've 100 % confidence that he is the best man to take us forward.

I completely disagree. He is playing a short term role and broadcasting cleverly.

It doesn't matter who we had in charge, there would be people out there who still never believe what the manager/club come out with, and the crazy concocted theories would all start again.

I mean, we've sold 3 players this week and half of the board are mind made up that Gibbo is backing out.
Just laughable really.

"It doesn't matter who we had in charge, there would be people out there who still never believe what the manager/club come out with"

Totally correct. No manager unites every fan, no manager produces a style which is universally loved and unless they are winning most matches and signing top players, they are rarely fully supported, either.

This window shows we're a selling club.
Trying to balance the books after the mega expensive Monk failure.

I think we're lucky to have Pulis as we are now. And I think we're in an ok financial position, but we can't go for broke again, we've got to stay afloat.

I hate the saying, but it is what it is, as fans it's completely out of our hands, the only thing we can do is to look at the positive, back the team and the manager.

UTB !

I would like whoever is going to replace Pulis in place early next summer, rather than wait until the death and have all the "is he staying" gossip (a la Venables) suffocate the start of next season (2019-20)

I don't know who, I don't have the connections in the game and have never pretended to.
I can only pass an opinion on who I like the look of and what I think about the current bloke.

I'd have loved Lampard and would have gone all out to get him pre and post Monk.
I also liked Jokanovic when he was still a possibility.
If we were to go for an experienced old war horse then I would have far preferred Warnock, who has far more experience and success in the league we are actually in.

mm bit of a Pulis love in this. For me I don't like the direction he is taking us - losing players like Fabio, Bamforth, Adama (nobody's fault except the idiot who put in the release clause) and Gibbo jnr is evidence of what kind of footie we are looking to inflict on the championship. With the current squad, manager and tactics I'm resigned to a bottom half finish this year

"This window shows we're a selling club.

We already balanced the books when Monk was here. The £50 million that was spent was offset by the same amount in player sales. And the wage bill will have gone down because the likes of Negredo and Valdes had gone.

We've since sold another £50 million of players only this time we've only spent £15 million on new signings. That's a nice £35 million in the bank from transfer deals and that's before the 2 x parachute payments and the £100 million TV money. Not to mention sponsorship, corporate deals, season ticket sales etc.

The idea that we have to balance the books and have no money to spend is absolute bollcks. In a couple more years when the parachute payments have stopped and we're stuck in the Championship with a bigger wage bill than we can afford then fair enough, but not this season. This season was / is our last chance to get out and we should be going for it. But we're not. We're cutting our cloth as a mid table Championship team and that's where we'll end up.

I agree with Indeedido to a large extent as he was brought in on a short term contract, 18 months is an unusual length. He was brought in with a specific remit from Gibson and is carrying out that remit to the best of his abilities I am sure.

He has talked about getting the club on a sounder financial footing and is a very wise owl as far as the media circus and fans are concerned. He has talked about the squad in both motivational terms, managing expectations and giving himself a teflon coat at the same time, very cleverly done.

I thought when he was appointed it was a good appointment given what had gone on under Monk. I thought he would improve results and get more from the squad, which he did.

I think the play off performances though were a self inflicted disaster mind. Sales of Adama and Gibson were inevitable and it sounds like the club wanted the money anyway to me. They planned early for Bens departure mind. The offer of a new contract to Adama helps manage the issue of the club doing all it could to retain him, but in reality he would always go if the clause was triggered I guess.

Bamford has been done to death, but the club happily accepted Leeds offer so were happy for him to go. I still dont get that but we move on.

He is managing expectations, moulding the team, and will be thoroughly carrying out his remit whatever that fully entails I am sure.

I doubt he will be here next summer unless promotion were realised, but he will have no doubt have done all he felt he can to deliver the owners remit in his time here.

He has to be allowed to see through whatever his remit is and of course judged on that when his time here finally ends. Now is not a time to consider a change of manager, it would be self destructive to do so.

I am sure he has his agenda and will do it his way. Some fans wont like it but if he gets results and promotion we will all be delighted.

As for a future manager that depends where we are. Lampard was a good shout at Monks time. Warnock was my hope and a few others. I suspect the next manager will be someone who TP might himself might advise Gibson on

I agree, Iím a fan of Pulis but the club have made it very difficult maybe even impossible for him to deliver promotion. I canít see us getting promoted, Pulis wonít be here next year and we all know it will be Woodgate in charge next season, itís what Gibson does, itís what he always does but people donít want to see it choose not to accept it.

Corcaigh - correct.
Much is said about the 'Typical Pulis' style and it really drives me mad.
I see every game and I've enjoyed it under TP for the majority.

I don't think people can make their own minds up these days. They're swayed by the press and the social media scene and general consensus. Minds are made up far too quickly.

Anyway, even if TP does build a strong, direct, lump it team, if it's effective and we're battling like hell and achieving things, I for one will absolutely love it. It's a long time since we've had a hard team full of competitors.

As for the guy who said Lampard, I really don't get that.
Completely unproven and we surely couldn't risk that again.
Yes, he was an excellent player and yes, he has his head screwed on, but I'm done with that type of manager for Boro.

Yes, Robson and McLaren were disasters. Oh, wait a minute.
It's about picking the right one, not just any former playing giant. Ryan Giggs not for me for example, but that doesn't mean no to Lampard just because he is raw.

We all had a good idea what we would be watching once Pulis took over.

That said he's put the young uns in and loaned a local lad, and Fry will be a regular this season and cement his place.
The big CH did OK , have seen enough of McNair yet.

We will see more loans I would imagine, and he may get the best out of Braithwaite and Fletcher.

To have any success the team need a tight bond and the crowd a siege mentality. Be interesting to see if TP can make this work. Pog maybe right about this manager yet.

I completely agree, I really like Pulis and his refreshingly honest, no Bullsh*t comments. He tells it like it is and I for one like that.We all know we are a weak squad and are doing well in the 2 games so far, but as soon as we play a decent side the cracks will be there for all to see.

In the clubsí current position, Pulis is exactly what we need, and experienced manager with a wise head not some unproven ĎWoodgateí style manager. Besides which, I am actually enjoying some of the football we are playing which is a joy after the garbage Monk served up.

"giving him the tools"

You've already got the pelters from Pulis saying the tools weren't provided.
