"Think I’m officially Pulis out. Woeful. Sick of watching awful football week in, week out. I just want a team that turns up, and wants to win the game of football."

Killing the love for the club of another set of fans.

I'm sure I'm not the only one who had grief from boro fans when we lost to them. I'm sat here smiling at their comments. One person on twitter said he wishes he could find the wba fan he argued with because now he'd like to apologise.  :P

Definitely on borrowed time..the Boro message boards are vitriolic compared to how ours were ..

Sad part is he gets to collect several million in compensation before he flashes his 'never been relegated' CV to some other desperate club.
Bit of a Ground Hog day going on here.

They seem to be having a good pop at the chairman Gibson too, but they do now seem to be understanding what Pulis brings to the club...... LOL!

I called it a few years ago, much as some disagreed with me.

He's done as a manager, he is outdated and cannot relate to modern footballers. There is only so much of running up hills and being berated players can take nowadays. You look at the likes of Guardiola, Poch, Klopp, the man management from them is absolutely superb. He just does not have that.

He's past his sell-by date and out-of-touch with modern football. He alienates flair players and distrusts foreign players, and his teams have no balance, pace or unpredictability. The negative stereotype of Pulisball doesn't actually do justice to how bad it is, the Boro fans are starting to realise that now. It isn't just long balls and scoring from corners, it's an overly-defensive and cowardly mindset that drains the life out of the club. Worst of all, it isn't even effective, we couldn't buy a win last season. Boro will struggle to make the play offs.

Amen.

I can forgive many things from an Albion team, but I can't forgive going out and not even trying to win.

...but he will change his style once he's had 15 transfer windows, then he will play like the Palace side he had for 6 months. Never been relegated and he is a safe pair of hands.

So often we saw this sort of comment on this forum. Was always a load of nonsense and I still think it will take a few years to reconstruct the club following the free rein we gave him. No doubt his never relegated tag is because he has been sacked before its ever got to that. It's a ludicrous stat when you think about it.

He should never be allowed near a football club again. Can't stand the guy.

He's in a long line of British Managers I feel the same about.
The likes of Fat Sam, Pardew, Hughes, Lambert, Cotterill, Moyes etc all have limited shelf lives and are no use to man nor beast in a progressive football club.

Agreed but he is by far the worst of them all.

I've just had a look, makes me feel happy that we are no longer having to endure his football.

Darren has some things to learn and not everything this season has been great but in comparison to what the Boro fans are now coming to realise, its brilliant.

The whole good style at Palace was a complete myth anyway, they were bottom of the league for just about every stat indicating any kind of attacking threat.

The difference was he left after 6 months and they had an amazing run of results in that time. That's the thing with Pulis, all will be forgiven with good results and people are happy to sit through the football, even convince themselves its not that bad when its getting results.

The issue is the second bad form emerges there's absolutely no breathing space from the fans.

His palace stint is a mix of myth and luck.he inherited a side that had a decent amount of pace and flair players and just needed a bit of confidence. He was there for a relatively short time so hadn't the time to ruin what was a decent squad with his usual influx of slow plodding past it British players

I think it’s becoming extremely obvious that modern football has passed managers like Mourinho, Allardyce & Pulis by. If Boro slip out of the top 6 after the festive period I don’t think he’l last. No-one should have to endure the tripe he serves up on a weekly basis.

His football is poor but a lot of the personal abuse aimed at him online is ridiculous.

The Boro fans have changed their tune.  While they were top 2 everything was fine.  It's the same with most managers these days, if the results slip then people will target managers and\or players.  And if you're a manager like Pulis it will be his style they'll go for.  I remember on here people moaning their head off because Pulis "praised" the opposition team in the press conferences and he shouted too loud on the touchline.  Stuff that is completely normal, and that Moore does, but nobody has that complaint now.  When DM's results have slipped a bit then people target his rawness, or his substitutions etc.
