How silly is the PR. Does pulis really not know what they want to spend??? Does he really have to go china to find out??

Personally looking forward the end of the Pulis era.

Apart from the bottom 3. Is there a team that plays worse football than us? Don't think so.

Whenever we play away, we are set up not to lose. Most games we seem to be set up in a 6-3-1 formation.

Watching Mclean and HRK come off the bench in mid-week was frankly depressing.

McClean is often our best attacking option, more so without Phillips in the side. Certainly against City once him and Robson-Kanu came on we actually had some attacking intent.

HRK has 3 goals this season, Rondon has 8. What is it that Rondon can't do?

Pulis has split a lot of fans with his style of football.
One side wants entertaining football, the other wants "just to remain in the Prem".
Pulis is a one trick pony, you wont get the first part unless by mistake.

Not sure this helps with your question but just for perspective:

HRK has started 5 games this season (23 sub) = 3 goals (a goal every 225 mins)
SR has started 31 games this season (6 sub)   = 8 goals (a goal every 350 mins)

Good answer, HRK for me at the moment

And our previous manages did not? Our fans like others are great moaners.Even Roy had his moaners.

West Bromwich Albion FOOTBALL Club
West Bromwich Albion PREMIERSHIP Club

I think we are supposed to be a football club but could be wrong?

I am a fan of football, some think the Premiership label is more important in my opinion. 

Chadli bright start then Pulised, Livermore bright start then Pulised, anyone purchased will be Pulised so budget and names purchased have little consequence.

What will Pulis be aiming for in the transfer window ? Personally I hope and think he will get a couple more players in to allow us to take the style we had between September and February a stage further. During that spell we scored goals, some good goals from break away passing moves. I think the vast majority were a lot less critical during that spell.
Since then Phillips has been injured, Chadli injured and out of form and several players getting more jaded as the season has gone on, exposing our lack of depth and lack of strikers.
I think Pulis will know that the owners will expect better than we've been churning out of late - he's not dull. See what the summer brings, see how we go in the first 12 games of the new season. If we are still not scoring or picking up points then there are serious questions about Pulis but I don't expect that to be the position.

We have shone at times this season but these moments feel in spite of Pulis and not because of him.

So when we play well it's nothing to do with Pulis and when we play badly it's all Pulis fault...that's pretty balanced.

I didn't say it's all Pulis' fault if we play badly.

He's going to throw his book out of the window, go for flair players and it will all be attack attack attack.

I said it a while back I think Pulis has taken us as far as he can go , good players come here and lose all form playing in his cage. Overall he's done the job he was bought here to do but if it was up to me I'd be looking elsewhere now.
Awful football , can't put three passes together and soft at the back.
Add to that his lust for old past it players on big money ....
