Tony Pulis - The positives

In answer to your thread title.....there are none.

 

If people were unhappy with Monk, then God help them with Pulis at the helm. Turgid, attritional,  uninspiring football. People will need a neck brace watching on TV as the ball will very rarely be on the ground.

 

If reports are true, this is a a most uninspiring,  short sighted appointment in my opinion. He is not the person to unite the fanbase.

 

People were unhappy with Monk because the turgid football was combined with abysmal results.

 

If Pulis is to be appointed then I imagine it will be attritional football but I imagine he will play square pegs in square holes and based on his track record the results will be far more effective.

 

He wouldn't be my first choice as I think we need someone who will play more attacking football and raise the spirits of the players and the fans as a result but his record of getting results speaks for itself.

Are any of the fans who wanted Monk sacking starting to have regrets now Pulis looks to be his replacement.?

A team of giants, every player over 6 ft will play. Baz will sent back to school after refusing  the rack.

How many times has Pulis been relegated? Or even left a team in the relegation zone?

 

Go on, have a guess...

 

There's a first time for everything.. how many times had Wycombe won a Championship match before facing us?

But he might be the one to lay the foundation's for success.

Any way, DC has done this before, allowed the fan's to get het up only to get some one else.

Indeed - the difference being Wycombe had played a grand total of eight Championship games before beating us, Pulis has managed rather more than that.

That would happen who ever the manager is as long as we WIN.

At this moment in time you are right, over a longer term though I'm not so sure, we won more often than we lost under Megson but many of the fans & players were tired of the style when he went.

 

Far more chance of winning more under Pulis than under Monk though.

That's how I'm trying to view it. 

 

Delighted that Monk has gone, but massively underwhelmed by  the prospect of baseball cap man taking over. 

 

In saying that, he will keep us up and he may even get us competing up the right end of the table. It's just we will be eye bleedingly bad to watch whilst doing so. This is a man who once played for a 1-0 loss in the second leg of a play off semi-final...when they were already 1-0 down. 

 

Long term, I don't see Pulis coming in and laying down any solid foundation. It all screams of a quick, short-term fix.

To do that the manager need's to be here longer than 1year, the average of the last 6 years.
