Pulis Gets His Marching Orders

Pulis Gets His Marching Orders

Yesterday West Bromwich Albion confirmed that head coach Tony Pulis had been sacked.

Following the recent run of results, the four nil defeat to Chelsea at the weekend proved to be the final straw for our owners, and Pulis saw his contract terminated with immediate effect.

Assistant head coach Gary Megson now takes charge of first team affairs whilst we conduct a new manager search.

Speaking to wba.co.uk Chairman John Williams explained.

'These decisions are never taken lightly but always in the interests of the Club. We are in a results business and over the back end of last season and this season to date, ours have been very disappointing. We would like to place on record our appreciation of Tony's contribution and hard work during a period of transition for the Club which included a change of ownership. We wish him well in his future endeavours.'

Pulis leaves with West Brom one point above the relegation places and we are winless in ten top flight games.

Pulis himself said he was proud to have managed the side.

'My remit was to develop the squad and ensure we delivered results which would in turn improve the club's financial position. We have achieved this year on year and I am pleased to have played a part in the club's growth. This season, expectations have risen and although we are disappointed with some of our results, one thing I would never question is this group's work ethic and application.'

Pulis of course has been linked with the Welsh international manager's job in recent weeks.
