Tony Pulis - Thoughts

I've checked and considering he could be our next manager there is no thread on TP.

What do we think? Are we prepared to give him a chance given his excellent track record in the Premiership? Isn't the experience he possesses the prerequisite for CPFC2010's CV requirements?

Would we settle for (miraculously) retaining our Premiership status for a style of football we would not like ideally?

FWIW I actually have a feeling that his approach would suit our current squad. Players like Jerome, Chamakh and Murray when he returns will benefit as TP likes to play wingers so service via crosses and balls into the box will be expected. Moxey will be expected to develop a long throw as well.

Just to add that defensively our players prefer tight organisation and a solid shape, something that DF instilled, and TP would probably build on that. Just trying to be positive!

He probably wouldn't be a bad appointment, but it would be a bit farcical to appoint the bloke who was actually mentioned in the Holloway press conference after a month long search around Europe. He would very obviously not be first choice and that's not a great way to start a new job.

I think Pullis is a step too far in terms of style of play.

It suits our team to be high energy and direct but Im not sure about aimless long balls and also I worry about the youngsters coming through.

I think he holds our best chance of staying up but I would rather have a direct style toned down slightly like a Warnock style.

I'd put up with him short term. Far far preferable to Dowie but v uninspiring.

He is by far our best chance of staying up ... he may be expensive but if he keeps us up then that will be money well spent. Assuming he is interested then I'm surprised he hasn't been appointed by now?

I am not sure the players we currently have would fit a Pulis/Stoke style of play.

I'm not a great fan of his, the style of play is taking Palace backwards but to be honest I have warmed to him after Coleman and other rubbish managers seemingly in with a good shout.

The original requirement from SP was a manager who had A) Experience of managing in the top flight B) Had a record of keeping teams up.

On that basis alone he is the stand out candidate by a long, long way.

There has been a lot of nonsense spouted about his so called 'dire' football that his team plays. They don't. They play a possession game, it just means sometimes the possession of the ball is with the other team, but they still got the results for five, six seasons under TP which meant they had a lowest ever finish of 14th, reached an FA Cup Final and made the last 32 of the Europa league.

In the summer I read To view the link you have to Register or Login book about the use of statistics and the like in football, a sort of Moneyball for football if you like. The chapter on Stoke City under Pulis was one the best pieces of football journalism I have ever written, it was unbiased, had no pre convinced ideas about how Stoke did/didn't play under Pulis and depicted his era at Stoke in a very positive light.

The book is actually a half decent read but I would recommend it to any Palace fan if Pulis comes in as to see what we will really get with a TP side.

Would rather appoint Keith Millen, he plays better football and has has just as much chance as Pulis.

These young managers seem to have as little patience as when they were players, looking for the quick win contract rather than building an actual career and proving themselves. Footballers are 90% c*nt.


MH, are you just here to plug your book?
