His "Style" Is IMHO irrelevant. If he can makes us serious buggers to play that is all. All this airy fairy rubbish about "flowing etc ect" A La Mowbray and the dreams of old ...are just that now. We need to be a hard place to come.
We won the FA Cup with defenders and mid that would take you to hell screaming! And forwards that could take anything like the same.
The game is different but the tactician will overcome.

Barlow, Setters, Drury, Wile, Colqhoun, Robertson, Giles, Robson, etc. etc.

Don't get me wrong, when successful we've always has tough uncompromising midfielders and central defenders - who could play a bit as well, what's wrong with being strong and skillful?

I'd include one of my all time favourites Len Cantello, I'm sure other Baggies fans can add to this list.

Welcome Mr. Pulis and the best of luck to you.

With one stroke JP has solved a lot of problems that has plagued us for years. Here is a domestic coach with the credentials to take us forward as a club and a personality the players simply cannot freeze out, ignore, or butter up to. The players, this time, know if they try anything cute it is them who will be out on their ear, not the coach. This wasn't the case with the previous three coaches and it would have been a potential issue with Sherwood as his relative inexperience would have given the players a potential excuse to keep dallying.

Also we finally have a footballing personality to make up for the loss of Dan Ashworth. Hopefully TP will play decent football with us, but at this point, short term, the overriding focus simply has to be to sort out our rotten/soft squad and get the players playing properly again and COMPETE as opposed to merely show up for an easy pay check.

I think so.He will set us hard to beat. That to me is the start.Always has been.

We have a guy who when we lose or god forbid give up i think these players will be scared to get in the dressing room

You're not wrong there mate.

I've just seen a picture of his number 2, Kemp as well.  He looks like he's built like a brick out-house and his stare could stop a charging rhino. No way I'd want to be on the wrong side of those two, but they're also just the kind of blokes you want  backing you up in a fight.

Sorry if already been spoken about... Watched the game on a live stream today
hopefully will be shown on motd, TP getting very involved even when he's supposed
to be watching from the stands, sent his number 2 down to give instructions to
Downing & co on for than one occasion. I believe he instigated Yacob coming on to the pitch. Was very
entertaining to see. like having him here already!

They showed that on MOTD - was great to see. Wants to get started and obviously already has plenty to say.

You can see that he is totally committed - sitting in the stands on a watching brief and having to get stuck in. Also loved Savage's comment on MOTD about guaranteed not to go down. Take nothing for granted but I really don't think we could've hoped for a better appointment.

Re. style: the nature of our goal today - a ball out of defence by Dozza to Saido who shifted it to Sess before receiving the return and finishing with aplomb- will hopefully show him our strengths and show that swift counter attacking a la palace is the way to go.

Well done to Peace for the first time in a while. Just put some proper blue stripes on our shirts and you will have righted a lot of your recent wrongs.

Oh and some money to spend in January would be nice.

On a different note, who was the guy sitting immediately to Pulis's right, in between Pulis and Kemp/Burton?

Antony Pulis, his son.

Is that just an "I'm bringing my son along" or is he going to be involved in our setup in some way?

Not sure actually his son is actually looking to get into coaching atm. Doubt with us though dunno.

Think he coaching with Orlando City at the moment after retiring from playing.

Welcome Tony

I honestly thought I would never say that....

I never wanted or liked AI being appointed and while I had moments of warming to him, I am very happy he is gone.

As for Mr Pulis, well I never thought I would ever get to a point where his appointment would actually excite me but it has.

After the last 18-24 months we really need a Leader of his caliber to clean up the mess that we have become...

He will get my 100% support... I amazed I just said that :)

He was involved alot in the 2nd half, and he didnt need to be, he could have easily have stayed, watched the game, and gone home and decided what to do.

Instead, he noticed what wasnt going right, got instructions sent down, and I believe the Yacob sub was his instruction, and Sess staying on the pitch was also his doing.

How often have we seen Sess last 70 minutes, yet yesterday he lasted 90 and was a useful outlet late in the game.

Not been on here for about a week so a lots happened. Glad Irvine is gone, and never thought I'd say it but we needed Pulis and I'm glad we've got him. Sadly, 6 months too late. Either way it s a good appointment.

For the first time after reading manager quotes I was up for the game. Pulis spoke of Unity and togetherness and I think he will deliver. Bit of belief restored.

When I heard about TP making the subs and already the subs Yesterday and speaking to them at half time. Did Roy speak to the players before or at half time when we had that 3-3 with West Ham?

I don't care if any of the Kiely, Downing or Kelly were offended by TP's input yesterday. It's his team now and that input may well have secured us a valuable point.

Just read that, expect to see a couple more players releasing statements about how good a manager TP is and how enjoyable training is.
