Watch out Irons …Pulis is about

Tony Pulis encourages Crystal PalaceNew West Brom manager Tont Pulis’ presence in the West Ham stands this afternoon is set to make the Irons job against the west midlands outfit harder than it might have been.

Pulis admitted to ClaretandHugh in an exclusive interview last night that he hopes that’s the case declaring: “It should be the way when a new man arrives.

“The Hammers have done brilliantly this season and Sam has done a terrific job  – they are a real test for any team. It’s going to be very hard for us.

“I have had nothing to do with the preparation for the team for this match but I would hope and expect  my presence in the stands will make a difference!”

Meanwhile Baggies star James Morrison has indicated the squad members are playing for their futures saying: “It’s a fresh start and whoever comes in might have their eyes on the game.  You’ve got to impress the new head coach to get in the team.

  1. Strange one this – it’s never been explained but you would presume Tony Pulis left Palace because they wouldn’t support him with what he wanted for Transfers and allow him full control BUT West Brom are famous for their policy of handing the Manager the players and just letting him coach.

    You’d think this policy is complete at odds with Pulis’s micro-management of all aspects of his previous clubs – maybe West Brom are changing their outlook. Otherwise, you’d think it could only end in tears!

  2. I think we are lucky to play them now before he can change things at the club, he is in no doubt 1 of the best English managers around if he is allowed to run the team.i have always wondered what he could achieve at the clubs with no money problems.

  3. I thought pulis was Welsh?
    Nevertheless it is true that this is a good time to play the baggies before the “pulis effect” really kicks in.
    For if his time at palace is anything to go by there is more than one so called “big” club going to get a bloody nose and a red face before the seasons end!

    Having said that I’m predicting a hard fought regulation 2-0 win for the hammers! COYI!

  4. I’m reading that the next TV Football Rights round is likely to be in the region of £10 billion (yes that’s billion!) it looks like Jeremy Peace has bitten the bullet and given in to Pulis’s demands in a desperate attempt to keep West Brom on the ‘Gravy Train’ or should that be ‘keeping the pig’s nose in the trough!’.
