Tony Pulis to be confirmed as West Brom manager on New Year's Day after rejecting chance to take over at Newcastle United
  • Tony Pulis will be named as West Brom boss on day they face West Ham
    Pulis earlier turned down the chance to replace Alan Pardew at Newcastle
  • He feared the team would be picked by committee, including Mike Ashley

Tony Pulis is on the brink of becoming West Bromwich Albion manager after rejecting Newcastle United.
The former Stoke boss, who quit Crystal Palace on the eve of the season, is clear to work again from January 1 under his severance deal with the south London club.
He had been interested in the vacancy at Newcastle but told his advisers to end talks when they became worried that controversial club owner Mike Ashley and head scout Graham Carr would want a say in team selection.

Tony Pulis is poised to be announced as West Brom’s new head coach.

The former Stoke and Crystal Palace manager has beaten off the challenge of Tim Sherwood and is set to replace Alan Irvine, pending the completion of a contract.

The 56-year-old Welshman has been out of work since resigning from Palace at the end of last season.

Pulis is expected to sign a two-and-a-half-year contract and is likely to be joined eventually at The Hawthorns by coaches Dave Kemp and Gerry Francis.

I'm told Pulis sought and received assurances over control on transfers, but the system will not alter significantly. (1/2). #wba

Apparently history is everything (when it suits).

Is that the same as it not suiting you when AI was in charge even though history suggested he would do exactly what he did?

Yes when it suits!!

Who is too say you will not be entertained by Pulis.....ask Palace fans they were pretty entertained

and for many years stoke were entertained

I think some of you are believing a myth about Pulis that is just not always true.

Ive seen bad and good football from his sides through the years, if you expected everyone to keep the faith with AI then I'm afraid you have no other choice but too back the next manager otherwise your previous arguments become nothing but a laughing stock

Disappointed. 2 1/2 years of Pulisball.  Never thought I'd see it at the Albion.

Very happy about this. We need someone to come in and kick ass.

I wonder if Tony has forgiven Olsson for breaking that photo in the Stoke tunnel.

If we get treated to what Palace fans watched in the second half of the season, I can't wait.

This "Pulisball" myth has to stop.
No no, no no no no, no no no no, no no shots on target.......

Would be disappointing if so but mixed with his 'Palaceball' and we could be in for some decent times !  We'll be competitive and organised at least and won't roll over for the big boys like the last few seasons.

AND, he might just know how to beat Stoke !!!!

Yep the "oh well you expect to lose to them" attitude will not apply under Pulis he just won't stand for it.

It was hardly great football under Irvine and Clarke though was it ...

For those talking about 'pulisball', i assume that if we go back over all the posts you have made on this site, ZERO of them will be moaning at a manager for saying we played well despite losing and that youre not interested in performance, its results that matter.
