He is indeed mate. I had the pleasure of watching a game with him around the Bryan Robson/Mowbray era.
He is very analytical about the game/club as you can see by the quality of his posts.

There are a lot of good posters on here [I`m not one ] I hate fan`s running us down as you may have noticed but some are very articulate. The only thing that really gets `s my back up is the constant knocking of TP WE were in free fall when he took over not only has he stablised us he has taken the club forward we now play a decent brand of counter attacking football and are slowly getting the right players to take us forward but still some fans want him out. Don`t think they will ever be happy

Yes much the way I have always thought. I used to get a lot of flack from posters who now complain of getting flack! When their dire predictions have not come to the result they seemed to desire. Some people know when a good builder is brought in some cannot see the wood.
You obviously have a sound grasp of what was needed.

From John Percy in the Telegraph. TP to be offered a new contract and it looks like we are off to Asia in the summer.

Tony Pulis to be offered new West Brom contract this summer
West Brom are on course for their best Premier League points total
20 MARCH 2017 • 10:30PM
Tony Pulis will be offered a new contract by West Bromwich Albion this summer, as the club close in on their best ever Premier League points total.

Pulis is set for talks with chairman John Williams at the end of the season and is expected to agree improved terms, less than 12 months after signing his last deal.

The Albion head coach is on the verge of securing a top-ten finish and Williams is pushing for Pulis to be rewarded by the club’s owner Guochuan Lai.

Pulis met with Lai before Saturday’s 3-1 win over Arsenal and is understood to have also held initial discussions over the size of his budget for next season.

Albion spent £10million in January on Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore and funds will be made available again in the summer, with a central defender, striker and winger on the list of targets.

It represents a remarkable turnaround for the Welshman, 59, who was facing calls to be sacked from his own supporters at the start of the season. Albion are on course to beat their highest ever total of 49 points, achieved under Steve Clarke in the 2012/13 season, with nine games left to play.

Pulis said: “The game is all about results irrespective of what people do or don’t say. I have young managers ringing me up now and the advice is simple – you have to win games.

“If you don’t win games you will get criticism. I’ve always been one that accepts that criticism.”

Pulis will also take his squad to Hong Kong and China in July after agreeing to play in the Premier League Asia Trophy.

Liverpool, Leicester and super-rich Chinese Super League team Shanghai SIPG are also poised to play in the biennial friendly tournament.

I think it's fair enough to add an extra year, probably helps recruiting players too I imagine.

Pleased that we'd like him to continue with the steady progress he's made.
A bit worried that he thinks we need a centre half, an upgrade would be nice in any position but we NEED a left back; then Nyom can play at right back and Dawson can move into the middle next to Evans with McAuley dropping to the bench.

Agree that we need a striker (or two) and a winger.

I actually think Nyom is better at left back, so solid v Arsenal.

Hello TheBrom.
You've mentioned this before.

Was it during an interview?
I only ask because I have never seen it in print.

Not implying TP has not said such, but if you have a link to this anywhere it would be greatly appreciated.
Especially as it contradicts Nyom's quote:

I prefer to play right-back, but playing left-back is nice because I learn a new position. He wants the full-back to attack so I try to attack as much as possible.”

http://www.expressandstar.com/sport/west-bromwich-albion-fc/2017/03/09/football-a-universal-language-for-west-broms-allan-nyom/

Ed:

Just found this TheBrom:

TP

“The great thing about him is he’s moved from right-back to left-back and done exceptionally well.

“As a matter of fact, the one game we played him at right-back he did better at left-back than he did at right-back for us. He’s done well, we’re really pleased with Allan.”

If this is your source, it's saying that he's done well to adapt as opposed to saying.... 'a number of times that Nyom prefers playing at left back'.

A direct quote from Nyom at a charity event he attended was that "I prefer RB as my left foot isn't very good, but will play were I'm asked"

SmethDan, Pulis said that on the Radio WM phone in:

http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/west-broms-tony-pulis-live-12637187

On cult hero Nyom

“He likes playing on the left and right,” says Pulis on the Cameroonian’s best position.

“I think he prefers the left which is strange because he’s right footed.

Yep the radio phone-in was the interview I was referring to. Knew I'd heard it somewhere. Was starting to question myself then!

Cheers for the link.

Interestingly TP says 'I think he prefers the left which is strange because he's right footed'.

From the quote supplied he doesn't state it as fact.

To be honest I just think Nyom likes being in the team following the fall from grace at Watford.

Fair play to him for making the most of his move  8) .

Would think another CH would be a priority soon, if Olsson departs this summer it leaves Evans, Dawson and McMauley so play any two and one on the bench would leave no cover if an injury or suspension popped up.

Good to see some of his charity work shown in the NBC series. Some of my friends from Stoke still talk about the stuff he continues to do up there for charity.

I'm sure we'll make Wilson's loan a permanent (even though he hasn't had any game time) and Livermore played as a centre half for Hull earlier this season..and did it very well by all accounts. There's 2 for cover if needed. If a quality centre half becomes available then we'd be daft not to try and sign them but I'd rather we concentrated on areas that are in more urgent need of filling like left back, left wing and striker.

It's a bit quiet here must have got another good result. Where's the posters who said Pulis and his players are always on the beach. Another myth about Pulis being proved wrong.

Not sure it's a myth. The evidence is there that his teams of every previous season have picked up a very low amount of points after the 40 mark.

That being said. Praise due for this season where it seems he's got th players fighting still. Think it says a lot that there's been so little posts on here when we've just taken a point at old Trafford. Shows how far we've come when that seems the norm and there aren't 10 threads saying how well we've done.

Long may it continue. We're certainly showing that we're no pushovers
