Tony Pulis has been sacked as the manager of West Bromwich Albion effective immediately after a run of poor results to end last season and start this campaign.
Funny how expectations change. West Brom were the poster club when it came to the "yo-yo" approach to promotion and safety. Albion purposely invested frugally over a couple of one-year trips to the Premier League putting the finances and structure in place to eventually settle in in the top flight. That goal achieved, the notion of playing dull football and just getting by was no longer enough and so survival master Tony Pulis was sacked as the season started looking like a fight for survival rather than a push forward to mid-table. It was a reasonable decision given that Pulis has been spending on players who should have the club moving toward mid-table safety. Gary Megson will replace Pulis on an interim basis until a full-time replacement is found. Mon, Nov 20, 2017 02:46:00 PM

Tony Pulis rumors will gain even more steam after Chelsea came to the Hawthorns and thrashed West Brom 4-0 with Albion barely putting up a fight.

The rumor mill surrounding the track-suited manager was already swirling after a string of poor results. This is bound to increase not only because Albion lost to Chelsea but based on the manner in which they lost. This wasn't the tough-as-nails, take-no-prisoners Tony Pulis side that we have grown accustomed to watching over the years but one that seemed content to be swept aside by superior talent. If they had lost a hard-fought 1-0 decision where they defended hard and gave everything for the cause then Pulis could be excused based on the talent gap. Instead, Albion turned in another performance that makes it look like Pulis has either tired of his uncompromising style or lost this group of players and their desire to put forth the effort his style demands. Either way, it will be a noisy week in the gossip pages as Pulis' fate is decided.

Outmuscled and overwhelmed by a strong Everton side, West Bromwich Albion lost its second straight league match.

The past week was not the most promising for manager Tony Pulis, who said he will open new contract talks with the club despite being shut out in both games this week. Already missing Matty Phillips due to injury, Pulis said he would rotate the squad to rest fatigued players for the weekend. Off went Chris Brunt, James Morrison and Salomon Rondon, but it made no real difference with the Baggies struggling to record only two shots on target while failing to contain former striker Romelu Lukaku.

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis committed his near future to the club after signing a one-year contract extension on Friday.

The veteran manager, who has never managed a team that suffered relegation, will now stay with the club through the summer of 2018 with his previous deal set to expire at the end of this season. But Pulis said he has aspirations to make the club a top-10 side after finishing 14th last season. "This is a time of great change at Albion and when that happens you need continuity. As I have said from the outset, I want to build things here and play my part in improving the club. You cannot do these things overnight but I do believe, step by step, we are making advances...We have a club which can aspire to be an established top 10 member of the football league everyone in the world wants to be part of. I want to continue to front that challenge."

The sale of West Bromwich Albion to a Chinese investment group represents a turning point in the club but where it goes from here isn't clear.

Tony Pulis voiced his frustration at the lack of transfer activity over the summer in no uncertain terms and was rumored to be considering quitting. Pulis decided to stay and now has a new owner to work with and, presumably, a changing board and philosophy to go with it. Both sides will need to decide how they feel about the other. Will new ownership be content with a manager who keeps his clubs up at the cost of entertainment value? Will the manager agree with the transfer approach of new ownership. It will be interesting to see what happens between now and January between the two sides as they figure it out.

Tony Pulis is set to be named West Brom head coach on a two-and-a-half-year deal to succeed the sacked Alan Irvine.

56-year-old Pulis, formerly manager of Stoke and Crystal Palace, is expected to be officially confirmed as the Baggies boss on Thursday. The BBC report that there are still some details to be decided, but the deal to make Pulis the club's fourth head coach in a year is expected to proceed without a problem after he was deemed more suitable than Tim Sherwood. Pulis will replace the outgoing Alan Irvine, who was relieved of his duties on Tuesday, with West Brom 16th in the Premier League, a point above the relegation zone with Irvine winning just four of his 19 league games in charge.

Bookmakers have suspended betting on Malky Mackay becoming the next Crystal Palace manager.

The majority of the UK sports media are reporting this as pretty much done, with Palace chairman Steve Parish set to appoint ex-Cardiff manager Malky Mackay to replace Tony Pulis. If confirmed, Mackay would join up with Cardiff's former head of recruitment Iain Moody at Selhurst Park, with the task of keeping the Eagles in the Premier League.

Tony Pulis has reportedly left Crystal Palace according to Sky Sports.

The Crystal Palace manager has left the club just two days before the start of the season after meeting with the club's co-owner earlier today. Pulis is a great manager but hasn't been able to get along with management and the two sides have parted ways. Pulis wanted to attract some talent to Palace this summer but the club were insubordinate and have not brought in any of his target players. This news puts a huge increase in the value of Arsenal players this weekend and decreases the value of Crystal Palace players' stock.
