Paddy Power will give you 11/4 for Tony Pulis not to be in charge for WBA's first game of next season.

I'll have some of that...

If this is actually true TP needs to get a grip. He is a decent prem manager but he he seems to think he should be afforded the same spending habits of a top 4 club. If he did walk away in another huff it could be very damaging this time.

Is it John Percy - if it is that is where all the Palace leaks around Pulis' mood came from and probably a good indicator to the truth. He also used him to ransom the board in the January transfer window.

Which to be fair was a bloody good window, It was Parish who didnt want to sign Dann and Pulis forced him to do it.

You can say alot about Pulis but for us his signings were excellent, alot better than this January.

West Broms sale appears to have stalled and with Peace wanting out & that must be hurting transfers - they've managed to bring in 2 from Wigan. I can easily see Pulis walking in next couple of weeks if it doesn't get sorted.

From that article:
Pulis is growing frustrated with the lack of signings and spoke with chairman Jeremy Peace in a 90-minute conference call on Sunday, in a bid to start making some headway on targets.

Wonder if our signings are adding to TP's frustrations?;)

I wouldn't say to go but certainly agitating... it's amazing how transparent his behaviour is.

He did the same with us. Every time he wanted a player, fancied a row with Parish or had his nose out of joint John Percy had the story. Either he stalks Pulis or gets fed by the troll with the baseball cap.

Our club certainly does not miss him.

Currently totting up the summer transfer expenditure of every PL club, and readying himself for a carefully executed stage managed exit if WBA's spending is in the bottom three.

Brand Pulis must not be compromised abort abort relegation is not an option abort

CPFC_DAVE77
22-07-2015, 08:53 AM
Problem with Pulis is that after what he did with us, his stock was high. We didn't really go out and have a good window last summer with Pulis, and people outside of the situation could make a good case for Team Pulis.

If, however, he does the same at West Brom, even if the truth was that neither club backed him, clubs will be cautious appointing him outside of needing a boost in the middle of a relegation battle.

Pulis needs to be careful before walking again, but I wouldn't put it past him.

You can make snidey comments all you like but what you cant deny is that Dann and Ledley were Pulis signings, he tried to sign them previously at stoke.

People on here can call Pulis all the names under the sun and thats fine, the guy is a **** but one thing im not having is people saying he was poor for us or that his transfers were poor.

That's Pulis' version. The truth is the board have backed every manager. In the summer Pulis pretty much refused to sign anyone - why? Because he was going to be off as soon as he had engineered getting his bonuses paid early.

1) I dont know or care who John Percy is. but he's a 'mate' of TP's is he? And of course, his 'mate' wouldnt write any articles biased towards TP and anti 2010 would he? Of course not. Get a grip.

2) Your open to snidey comments when you proclaim bollocks and hearsay as truth. Nobody is denying these were good TP signings.

3) 'january transfer window was the best we have ever had, in comparison this seasons was shocking'
Dann and Ledley, great. Punch was already here, Hennessey and Ince were brought in.
This Jan we brought in Soare, Lee C-Y, Zaha and got Murray in the side and got a top 10 finish. So your comment that Jan 2014 was the best we've ever had and 2015's in comparison was shocking is total bollocks.

That aside, your post is spot on.

How can you count Murray as a transfer, jesus christ

Sanogo, Ameobi, Lee, Mutch contributed nothing, Zaha on a permanent was a good move but that wasnt a Pardew signing the same as me not giving credit to Pulis for signing Puncheon last january.

Jury is still out on Soaure.

Zaha aside I wouldnt be surprised to see them all moved on by the end of next summer, indeed 2 of them are already gone.

How can you not count bringing Murray back into the side?? Would it have been a better window if we had spent 10miilion on Carlos Kickaball?? Jesus Christ!!

Sanogo was a loan. (he moved on because he wasnt our player)
Ameobi was primarily a coach. (was only ever a stop-gap playing wise)
Mutch was unfit and then injured.
So Zaha wasnt a Pardew signing? Was it Pulis? Freedman? Or do you just apportion credit to the manager at the time only if it suits your agenda?

As for the 'jury still being out', much as it still is on Hennessey and Ince but that doesnt equate to your claim that one was the 'best window ever' and the other 'shocking in comparison'. Utter tosh.

You need to learn to walk before you can run.

And Pulis can get teams walking very well.

Let's not deny the fact he done a superb job at Palace. If you genuinely believe anybody else could have got us a similar points tally as he did in the state that he took us over in then you're severely deluded. He spent very well and I have full respect for the job he did. I was of course pissed off the way he walked out on us as it could have had a real detrimental affect on us.

Pardew came to the rescue and has really lifted the club in every aspect of it. We look as strong as ever and there's a general feeling we're onto something good.

Why people compare Pardew to Pulis I don't know, both terrific managers in this division who have/are doing a great job at our club.

I don't care really too much about Pulis like he doesn't care too much about Palace. Not a like or dislike towards him, I'm happy with his accomplishments what he done here as I'm sure he is but that's about it.

I actually hope he does leave WBA personally as that's another side severely weakened in this league.

As with most managers since cpfc2010 took over the club, Pulis put us in to a position to build and take away a minor blip, we have. Each managers input, wether it be a signing or the way they rubbed off on a player, has had an affect on where we are today and that can't be shot down like a lot do on here.

The new signings in January contributed **** all, your January signings are usually ones that give you extra momentum to end the season, none of ours did that

Sanogo and Ameobi didnt score 1 PL goal between them, indeed Sanogo is one the worse players at Palace ive seen in along time.

Mutch was grossly unfit and contributed nothing, jury is still out but already looks surplus to requirements

Lee had a broken leg and made one solitary poor performance.

Souare - Jury is still out on him, best I can say about him is he looks ok-ish

Compare that to the previous January where we picked up

Dann
Ledley
Henessey

Why does everyone get personal with me, if you dotn agree with my post then put out your own opinion, and Ive never said I was the worlds best player but did ok thanks very much, If you want to know I played for amongst others Croydon schools, Surrey, Crystal Palace youth, and a few non league teams inc a good spell at Sutton United where I played against quite a few pro sides.

I dont say that to impress people, I imagine there are better players than me on here but If you having a pop about me being clueless im going to stand up for myself, personally Im quite proud of what I did

People have a go at me yet to be serious are lucky to have played anything more than pub football on a sunday morning.

The new signings in January contributed **** all, your January signings are usually ones that give you extra momentum to end the season, none of ours did that

Sanogo and Ameobi didnt score 1 PL goal between them, indeed Sanogo is one the worse players at Palace ive seen in along time.

Mutch was grossly unfit and contributed nothing, jury is still out but already looks surplus to requirements

Lee had a broken leg and made one solitary poor performance.

Souare - Jury is still out on him, best I can say about him is he looks ok-ish

Compare that to the previous January where we picked up

Dann
Ledley
Henessey
Ince

There is no comparison

Henessey and Ince hardly played. So basically Dann & Ledley made a bigger impact than Sanogo, Mutch and Soare (who were the only ones who really had any game time)
Sanogo was pretty poor but also had some decent games at Burnley, Southampton and was really good off the bench against Leicester.
Soare, yes, the jury still out but he showed some promise.
Ameobi was primarily a coach and some support for Pardew more than players on the pitch.
Mutch was disappointing.
Lee has played in the Prem, has played for his country and is clearly a good player as Im sure he will show this season.
You also seem to have trouble grasping (with some geniuses like Friskey it seems) that bringing Murray back in (rather than pissing a few million up the wall which it seems makes it a BETTER transfer window) made a serious difference.
Either way, we finished 10th. Pardew did enough in that window to get us into the top 10 and also give players like Soare, Lee and Mutch more time to settle which meant we needed less in THIS window.
Whilst the signings of Dann and Ledley were excllent from Pulis, Pardew actually moved us higher up the table than TP did and you compare the two by saying one was the ' Best window ever' and the other 'shocking in comparison'
Genius.

Jan 15 was not shocking but the Jan 14 window was probably our best ever.

Jan 15 not shocking is about as close to praise as you can get. We signed:

Lee - injured and we still don't know if he has an immediate future here
Ameobi - need I say more?
Mutch - I like but can hardly go down as a good signing yet
Pap - not cheap and a dreadful start. Improving but can you call that a success yet?

Harsh. My view:

Lee: Injured when we signed him but comes with an excellent reputation. Yet to be proven but looked good on Friday.

Ameobi: Bought as cheap cover. Did a job when brought on (better than Sanogo - our only bad January signing)

Mutch: Was quality at Cardiff. Struggled with QPR but that can be put down to a fitness regime and poor team spirit. Not going to light up the world but solid cover.

Pap: Needs to be given time to get used to the pace of the premier league but has settled pretty quickly. Looks excellent going forward. I think he'll play a part in quite a few of our goals this coming season. His defending needs work but again, it's just a case of getting used to the league.

Gooders

He can't walk out 2 seasons running - it would finish him as a manager.

I think they'll struggle to attract players not just because they don't want to pay the money but because a good proportion of them won't want to play in a Pulis team.

Reading that WBA thread makes me think back to this time last year.

It's well known Pulis is a complete control freak even down to who works in the canteen. I suspect he is just not used to be told no hence why he gets pissy. If he walked out again it would more or less end him surely? Finally, surely a set budget structure must be put into a contract of some sort to say he has X amount to spend. It will be interesting to see how they get on in the remaining month or so of the window.

Given the difference in Sky cash for being relegated and losing the cash if you fail to get back I'd say that would be a minimum.

Around £100 million per season is the new Sky money so regardless of parachute payments, it's got to be worth paying out £30 million+ for keeping a club up versus relegation.

Maybe the manager won't get all of it and the players will get big bonuses too but the sums involved are staggering.

I was gutted when he left but I'm so over him now it's not funny. The guy's a **** and will get found out sooner or later.

The irony is he is a one trick pony that has one way of playing. If all the players buy into it he can squeeze great results out of inferior players (as long as they don't concede first).

And the irony? Well you can give him an unlimited transfer budget and he will squeeze the same performance out of over priced, over waged and the over aged. See Stoke passim

He was perfect for us when he joined and West Brom when he joined them - as long as you view Premier survival as the be all and end all.

With £100m for being in the PL versus about £10m (plus parachute) for being in the Championship survival is the be all and end all. Unless that is you're challenging for the top six and that's a whole different financial arms race.

Agree about the spending and squeezing the same performances out, but he won't be found out because regardless of his approach and how horrid it is to watch at times it is effective. Percentages are percentages and you can know they will be physical on set pieces but stopping it is another thing.

Does 'Team Pulis - Never Been Relegated' call up their reporter plant and say "we need to put in a passive aggressive story to pressurise the chairman into giving me a more lucrative contract, whilst alerting the rest of the world that I'm poachable otherwise", or are there reporters in Birmingham unable to sleep at night until they use every last vestige of their investigative talent to answer the burning question of his latest contract situation, and call him out of the blue for a quote?

I imagine it is more like Pulis calls his mate and says how he has been stung for 3.5M and is a bit skint so could he remind the world how great a gaffer he is so someone offers him more cash

That's crazy. So, just after a random story appears in the press about Pulis wanting to sit down for a meal with the WBA chairman to discuss a new contract, his name is linked with a Championship bound yet high profile moneybags club?

Imagine that.

I hope Jeremy Peace tells Pulis "Like you said, there's no rush", and spends a year finding his replacement while letting his contract run down.

He needs to cash, owes a few quid to us.
