The former Stoke City and Crystal Palace manager’s departure from Selhurst Park caused shock waves within Upton Park.
It became an immediate talking point among highly placed club insiders and when approached by ClaretandHugh and asked if there was any interest, one said: “He’s a top manager, takes clubs up and keeps them up!”
A Pulis arrival at Upton Park would be a tad ironic as he started his managerial career alongside a former Hammers boss Harry Redknapp at Bournemouth and the two men remain great pals.
Now the Welshman is being generally discussed as a possible Boleyn candidate along with David Moyes .
His record of keeping Stoke in the Premier League before an interruption which saw his save Plymouth Argyle from relegation and then return to the Potteries is impressive.
He also took the club to a losing FA Cup Final against Manchester City and finally produced a small miracle at Selhurst Park last season before his shock departure.
Our source said: “Sam Allardyce remains safe for now but Pulis would have to be a candidate if the job became available along with Moyes. ”
