One result won’t change anything if our home form does not improve. The system works away because teams come at us and we counter attack, but at home we look devoid of ideas. Millwall was atrocious, let’s see how we play against Leeds.

If you don't want pulis out then you aren't going to the games,its the worst football ever played at the riverside
His team selection is ridiculous at home
Ok he is good at setting a team away against difficult opposition and nicking away wins but that will soon run out too
Most half decent managers would finish top 6 with the 2nd largest wage bill in the league

I really don't like Pulis. His brand of football is awful but more importantly than that he comes across as a bully.

I don't know what happened with Bamford, but it seems Pulis wanted shot so got rid of him.

He has constantly got on Assombalonga's back about the price paid for him, how the hell is that Assombalonga's fault. Oh and lets not mention Assombalonga, 11 goals in I think 18 starts yet he still cannot get a game under Pulis, why?

Pulis is not a very good manager

You obviously never watched us under Strachan then. That was far worse and we lost every week. Or under Southgate. Pretty to watch but completely spineless. Got relegated as the lowest scorers in all divisions.

Our away form is very good. It matches with pulis' "not lose" approach. This is the approach that has been successful in keeping smaller clubs in the PL.

It is a hopeless approach when needing to go and win matches to get promotion. pulis has refused to set up to win throughout his career - and he subsequently hasn't.

Strachan was a disaster, but if you look at the Championship table at 4th Feb 2011, Middlesbrough had played 14 home league matches, winning 6, drawing 4 and losing 4, scoring 20 goals and 22 points.
pulis has played 14, won 6 drawn 5 and lost 3, scoring 14 goals and 23 points.
Both had/have us with lower half home form, with awful atmospheres.
I dislike both managers, but the facts are that both had awful home records in their first full season in charge at the same point. pulis has us very effective away from home, while Strachan had us in the bottom 3 away form.

We can't possibly be wrong, it is simply impossible!

He MAY get us up, but that does not mean we are wrong.

For me, it's the style, not the results.
His style is undoubtedly negative and boring with the very odd exception.

If you like it, then that is fine it really is, i don't, so i can't be wrong because i talk about style of football not results.

He's never won anything anywhere, ever.

He has kept small clubs in the PL by playing defensive safety first, second and third.
He has also spent a fortune doing so at Stoke and West Brom and bored people rigid all over the country, especially in the west midlands.

Had he been appointed in Jan 2017, if Karanka had to go, then that appointment would have made sense.
To appoint him to get promoted when he has a poor track record of winning matches and getting promoted was daft.

All seems obvious stuff. I don't need stats to know that Pulis will be successful away from home but wont win enough games. I also don't need stats to know that we are every bit as bad at home as we were under Strachan. If anything the football might be worse at home. He's out of his depth when a team needs to win enough games to get promoted and his style doesn't work across two legged play offs but even if it did it would be exposed at Wembley. Mark my words, we won't go up under Clueless.

I imagine the 'Pulis out' shower will never admit they are deluded. Bearing in mind it's a results driven business he's not doing too badly and how that can be argued against is frankly, ludicrous. Maintained a play off place throughout the season after guiding us to a playoff place last season also. This has been achieved with financial constraints and the club selling two of our best forwards, in Traore and Bamford, purely because they were our only saleable assets that interested other clubs. Posters complain about the entertainment levels, but many more supporters would complain if the football was more open and expansive but resulted in us being fifth from bottom rather than fifth from top.Apologies if any errors as this is my first post.

The discontent with Pulis is about results AND style of play at home where the vast majority of the fans see us play.
The facts are that at home Pulis has 1 more point in 14 matches than Strachan had in their first full season. Both of them had awful home records. I’d argue pulis’ is worse to watch, as we have scored 6 fewer goals.

Pulis has 2 promotions in his 18 seasons outside the top flight. The one at Gillingham was from the 4th division nearly 30 years ago.

He is a not loser. He’s never been a winner.
But to reinforce loads of other posts, it was a great away win last Saturday and everyone deserves great credit for it👍

Mansize, firstly, even putting performances to one side, our home form is poor for a side chasing promotion. I really think the top 2 will be gone unless we beat Sheffield on Weds (that was the target set at the start of August remember).

Secondly, other teams are on our shirttails for the play offs. Hopefully we dig in and manage to get top 2 but i doubt it. The play offs are a lottery as you know. Wembley (if we get there, seems almost cursed). Pulis in the playoffs will do what he always does, plays negative and deep hoping to nick a 1-0. I am not being negative, I am being a realist. We see the evidence of all the games where once we go 1-0 up we start to sit deep, defend the lead, invite pressure and sometimes we concede like Saturday.

If he went for it like we were early season most games I would have more faith. We dont generally. We have forward minded players in Tav and VLP that either dont get a look in or are just used as impact subs if we are chasing a result. Tavs goal scoring record should justify a place yet he cant always get on the bench.

I truly hope we make promotion, but the evidence week in week out suggests the play offs are not even guaranteed. Derby, Bristol, even Brum, Forest are not far off us. We can do it and with a forward approach I think we can, but we always sit back deeper after going 1-0 and invite pressure. Attack has always and will always be the best form of defence in my book

Coluka you sure top 2 was the target? I could be wrong but the only thing I recall Pulis saying in August was that this team wasnt good enough to go up and hes now had 2 or 3 windows where players that he wanted havent been brought in. If those players hes looking for were defensive i would be worried but like everyone else he knows where we are weakest. I’m not sure about the VLP thing - he sees him in training and obvs isnt convinced enough to give him a proper go. He has redeemed himself in some fans eyes with Mikel. Unless that was all down that to Gill and co..who knows. UTB

Why wouldn't the top 2 be a target for every team in the league? If he just gave up in August he should have walked away.

Yep absolutely sure. Pulis stated it before a ball was kicked. Yes he stated he wanted players with pace and power and they never came. He stated several times the squad is not good enough. He is correct imho. However depending on where you sit with TP, he is either:
A) Honest forthright and open
B) Covering his own ‘Teflon Tony’ back giving himself the option to blame others.

The problem with ‘A’ is his low use of VLP and Tav and sticking with the experienced CM’s

See Dani Ayala’s comments to back up the original target as I stated [^]

No it is not clearly and hopefully we now have a run of games where we really need to win a few on the bounce. But I am sure even you can see things need a dramatic improvement in results. We are relying on others slipping up.

Top 2 ..... the aim...... is now gone for me

I agree it’s not looking good but was top 2 ever realistic? I remember most people predicting top 6 at best back in August. So because of this I find it hard to call for the blokes head regardless of performance, as we are on course for what was expected.

The thing is what the Chairman has done is key. I blame the recruitment this year, last year and the previous year and it has been shambolic.

The chairman and his recruitment team are culpable for failures to build a squad capable of promotion, more so thanthe managers that have been in charge. Karanka and Puliswere expected to make a silk purse from a sows ear.

Slowly but surely fans are realising that signings are not always who or what the manager needed.

Gibson stated after Southampton game he did not need telling and was determined to put it right. A team with more pace and flair. Well we have less than what we had back then. We are treading water at best.

That said managers are culpable to some degree. The squad is better than its performances. That is down tothe manager, his staff and the players. Look at what Solskjaer gets from Utd comparred to Mourinho as an example of what can be achieved with the right tactician as manager and a change in how you approac a game

Not sure Solskjaer is a great example to use. Man United have a world class squad with an £80m player underperforming because he had a massive strop. We have a squad worth that in total.

"Slowly but surely fans are realising that signings are not always who or what the manager needed."

I've never agreed with this even though I know it's become the consensus. Gibbos signings got us over the line in the promotion year. No Rhodes and Ramirez and there's not a chance Karanka would have got us up imho.

Abel the example is about managing resources. The principles apply whether you are a multi million pound establishment like Man Utd or a non league outfit like Darlo.

Mourinho was his way or the highway. A good leader will adapt and change to suit the context and issues they face and seek to take his people with him or her. Good leaders adapt themselves to the tasks they face then seek to take others with them on their journey. Good leadership is like beauty, It is hard to define, but you know it when you see it.

Pulis plays football a certain way the squad we spent a fortune on was not assembled to play that way and cant sustain it. He was the wrong man for the squad we had assembled then we weaken it by selling our best striker and our only pace outlet without replacing them. We are a weaker squad than last year. Pulis as I say though is not the sole issue, far from it

First time ever in the West Stand yesterday, and found myself sat right behind the dugout above the players tunnel, interesting to observe our management team in action...responding and changing things as the game progressed, its clear some of the players were not following instructions issued by not only Pulis, but Fleming and Woody as well. (Fleming can't half whistle, by the way)! and hand written notes were passed to some players on the pitch after substitutions were made. A very active dugout....unlike SM...in the suit who rarely ventured out. Pulis ok in my book [^] but back to the North Stand for me....too quiet.

Coluka, it’s not just about that one result though is it?

We’ve never left top 6 all season.
1 defeat since Boxing Day,
We’ve won our last 2.
In last 6 in league we have won 3, drawn 2, lost 1.

But because we don’t play ‘the Boro way’ people like you want him out.

“But because we don’t play ‘the Boro way’ people like you want him out”

Where on this thread have I said I want him out [:D] i am sticking up to some degree to his critics, but i am also calling your over optimistic and at times unrealistic comments. You ignore the fact of what the seasons target was and move the goalposts to suit your position.

It is true I dont think he was the right appointment given the squad of players the chairman bought for him to coach to achieve the stated aim of top 2.

I have praised Pulis many times in saying I believe he has got more from the squad than the sum of its parts. Equally I have criticised his cautious and turgid football at home. Away from home we play far better and have praised him for that. It matters not a jot where we are now it is where we finish.

As I said earlier I felt top 2 was possible if we beat sheff Utd. We didn’t. We have a run of games where we need to capitalise. If we do great, but top 2 still a big ask. More likely play offs. If we go up great, if not Pulis will undoubtedly have failed by anyones measure

This post sums up everything annoying about this place, nobody can debate things without getting personal, or without acknowledging valid points from the opposing person. People wait for results and you know who will be popping up with their ‘haha told you so’ posts as soon as you open this page.

It’s hilarious because we win one game and apparently that proves one group of people were right all along, then we lose on the Tuesday which apparently proves the other group were right all along. The latest amusing thing is reading all the posts drooling over Mikel while also remembering the posts the day we signed him.

Not at all. Back in August I like most Boro fans predicted play offs at best. I met nobody who said top two.

The fact anything other than top two is seen as failure goes to show what a sterling job Pulis has done.

If we go up top 2, or via the play offs he should get huge congratulations and I for one will have been proven wrong.

I really don't get threads like this or some of the posters gloating over a win as though there are genuine posters on here that are in some way displeased that we won.

The 'Pulis Out Brigade' of which I am a member by and large will be delighted when we win. I can't speak for all of them but I am pretty confident that the majority, including me, want a successful football club.

So it's really simple fellas. If we go out with a positive mindset, we set up with a positive team and the players give their all to try and win the game and results follow then all of us will be delighted. If that then results in promotion I will be the first on here to celebrate and praise Pulis to the hilt. If, however, we pick teams with 4 defenders and 5 central midfielders all intent on keeping it tight and playing a turgid brand of football that doesn't produce goals or results then, quite rightly, the manager will get it in the neck.

It is no more complicated than that. We all want a successful team. Some of us think that to achieve that we need a different manager and some think Pulis is the man to deliver success.
