West Brom sack Tony Pulis

He becomes the fifth Premier League manager to be sacked.


After overseeing four losses in a row and some of the most turgid football the Premier League has seen this side of well, Tony Pulis, the tracksuit stalwart has been sacked by West Brom.

Baggies fans will finally be able to forget the time they lost to 10-man Huddersfield, when Pulis’ tactical brain was in overdrive sending out a team with 10 (ten) defensive players.

With just 12 points from their past 21 fixtures the guillotine for Pulis was not unexpected.

Getting battered 4-0 at home by Chelsea was the final straw for the West Brom owners.

Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill is the bookies’ favourite to takeover, followed by Sam Allardyce.

The fans can rest assured the club is in a safe pair of hands with Gary Megson assuming the caretaker role.

A master tactician.

West Brom sit just one point above the relegation zone with Spurs at Wembley up next.

December is not kind to WBA with two certifiable six-pointers against Crystal Palace and Swansea to come before facing Liverpool away and a visit from Manchester United.

Albion could be firmly in the relegation zone before we even enter the festive period.
