Tony Pulis - Nixon Story

Recommended Posts

To play devil's advocate here, Pulis' last 20 years have been a sight more successful than ours.

 

We haven't kicked a ball in the PL for almost two decades, we've no money, and based on yesterday's efforts we're bob.

 

We're a club synonymous with failure, underachievement and mismanagement, stimulated from the top.

 

Glancing at his pedigree, I'd say that it would be somewhat of a coup were we to land him.

 

Pulis is another Megson.

 

The football's poor but effective.

 

At the very least we'd end up with a team which is a cohesive unit, and one composed of players with grit.

 

It's very difficult for a non-parachute club to go up without those attributes.

 

And let's not forget, Jones may have got us over the line playing a more entertaining brand of football than that of Megson, but it was Megson's players playing it.

 

Likewise, even if Pulis didn't get us up, he'd pave the way for someone else to do it.

How would fans feel if Pulis bought Megson in as his assistant like he’s done in the past?

 

Would that make you more receptive to the idea?

 

Under Megson I thought we played some decent stuff to be fair and enjoyed watching us play. We played direct but Megson bought in the likes of Marshall, Antonio and Lines (hardly suited to a side just playing long ball) and in a few interviews has described Forestieri as the best player in the league.

 

Could a Pulis and Megson combination get the best out of Forestieri? Would they really be that terrible to watch?

 

Not  necessarily my views but just trying to look at this from another angle to see what fans think?

5 or 6 years ago definitely. But not now! Be a bad appointment.

Agree entirely with this!

Yes, I think we'd be naïve to believe that Bruce's only reason for leaving was the opportunity to manage his hometown club.

 

I'd be reluctant to put Chansiri in charge of a coconut shy.

 

Managers like Bruce and Pulis have got parachute written all over them, and we don't have the ackers.

 

If Chansiri does want Pulis, then he's probably going to take some persuading.

 

And he's not the sort of bloke to sell himself short either.

We don't want a manager that needs "persuading". We want a manager who at least WANTS the job. Those who WANT the job will already have sent in their applications. If there isnt anybody amongst those then an official approach for an employed manager. If the job is turned down then move on.

Surely SOMEBODY wants the flipping job .

A guy has just taken the Bolton job and says he is "privileged " to be given it. 

WTF:

Although I dont want Pulis. I believe if he was appointed with Megson at least we would have an identity. Because for the last 3 seasons we haven't! We just dont have any sort of plan when things go south nor do we have a successful way of playing to use consistently! Maybe under both we would have a identity not necessarily pretty but effective maybe?

Pulis shouldn’t be under consideration. Our playing squad is not suited to his playing style. 

 

Im sure he would toughen us up and that is our main weakness at the moment but we have footballers at the club but Pulis prefers giants and cloggers. 

 

Go and get Rowett for Christ’s sake.

Agreed mate.

 

I definitely think that if he were to bring Megson in as his assistant it would help sell the move to the fans.

He doesn't want it anyway, he can fizz right off back to the Jurassic World.

The Owls made a discrete check on Pulis’ interest when Steve Bruce walked out for Newcastle, but he was not keen.

 

Discrete or Discreet?

 

and he was not keen? so we are going begging a guy who isn't keen....

if we are doing that maybe we should go begging at hughtons door

Nah, you would still go. Support Wednesday through thick and thin.

 

Ask West Brom and Boro fans what I was like watching a Pulis side.

 

It would be a disaster. We don’t have the type of players in the squad Pulis needs to be a success.

:biggrin:— fans “we need real experience” .. Pulis gets linked ... fan reaction - oh he’s a has been .... so I guess too much experience .. 

 

:biggrin:- some fans ... It’s all DC fault? That’s why Bruce left .. nothing to do with instant PL football and his boyhood club...

promise were not kept.. DC get us out of a soft embargo and spends 60 million giving us a new fresh budget while trading and bringing in new players ... but promises were not kept is the story ?????!!!

 

The only thing we know is DC went for Houghton the best on the market and he doesn’t want it.. the next high calibre manager is Pulis and he’s not keen (probably because the squad would need an overhaul for his style )Rowett now excites me FWIW but DC looking for achievement and I can see why TP appeals .. he’s appealed to WBA and Boro..

Anyone actually worked out what our playing style is at the moment.

 

As stated above what is our identity. To me it is a bunch of individuals who occasionally resemble a team. 

 

I want someone to come in and stamp a pass and move type game on us. There is the odd fleeting glimpse amongst a sea of garbage
