This 100%, a deal like that could wipe out the hit he took in court last year & set him up for life.

Also their squad is far stronger then the one he took over at the Albion when he came, I really don't think it would be too difficult for a manager of Pulis's ability to keep them up, plus they are still in with an outside chance in the Champions League.

Sorry if it upsets a few but if Leicester come calling TP will be off.
If they did come calling I'm pretty sure Mr Williams would grasp them very firmly by the short and curlies for a very substantial amount of compensation before agreeing to let him go

I agree but how much compo would be enough to cover the loss? hard to put a figure on the potential long term damage to our club.

The only compensation we would get is the unexpired value of the contract i.e. roughly £3m which is as I have often said is money for old rope simply because Coaches turnover so rapidly there is always a good one between jobs

Give the man a three-year contract.
(a) He has earned it.
(b) Guaranteed another three years in the Prem
(c) Probably win a cup and continue to improve the team.

Like I said, why would he move from what is a pretty much comfortable position that he has now? He has another year with us, that must be around £3m or so, we're looking to offer him another deal, and bar a small miracle he's not going to be sacked any time soon.

Or.. go to Leicester, potentially be relegated this year and get replaced, or stay up and start the rebuilding all over again. Why would he need to do all that when he's just got us how he wants?

I think if Leicester came calling, Pulis would be tempted.

He's going to have a difficult period between now & the end of the season to keep them up, but they do have some good players, except at the back. If he could get Huth & Morgan to do the same job as GM & Daws, they will stay up easily.

As others have said, Vardy's goal on Wednesday night still gives them a chance in the CL.

What also might tempt Pulis is the fact they they had the funds & chose to buy Slimani, we didn't, so Pulis's preferred choice of Expensive British based players would be more likely to be deliverable at Leicester.

I don't see the Leicester job as poisoned challice, almost everybody recognises, that last years' PL win was over achieving, I doubt that even the Leicester owners would expect that again.
Ranieri was very well backed by the owners, but failure can easily happen when your success is based on emotion, Pulis's approach would be far more mechanised, & IMO, that is the type of Manger Leicester will look for

Absolutely spot on
Let's not forget after all the shenanigans at palace he could do with a nice signing on bonus and keep us up bonus.
Many of the people on here wanting to dismiss the fact that he would be tempted, are also the ones saying we have reached our ceiling.
If he feels the same about taking us as far as is poss, then why stay, you would assume that if we finish seventh and complete a net spend of 40mil, we would still find it tough to acheive same position again.
How many more opportunities do you all think he will get to have managed in the champions league on his CV?

I would welcome an approach from Leicester or anybody for that matter. Give him a good payoff to buy his children some property. Ranieri would be a great replacement, as would Wenger if Arsenal decided they needed a change.
It would be nice to see a bit of class and style return to the club.
Pulis has never won anything, other than records for long throw ins and time wasting. Finishing 8th is ok in some peoples eyes, but it is meaningless in the bigger scheme of things.
The foundations are there for something to be achieved , but I doubt very much if Pulis is the man to do it. If you were a talented striker , would you want to play for him?
Come on you Foxes, make us an offer !!

difference 4 months make. Now he just needs to keep it up next season and not regress back to his 20-odd years of "experience".

wonder what  pulis would see as the bigger challenge,  keeping us where we are or keeping Leicester up. he comes across as a competitive person who relishes these types of scenarios. I think the job at Leicester would be of interest to him if he thought we've hit our ceiling.
Ambition and what both clubs want to achieve would have a big say on his decision, personally for now would like him to stay just to see where we as a club are going, this summer hopefully will tell us with the right time to do transfers , a good league campaign under our belt and we should have money to spend.

I am really worried about Leicester going after TP also and let's face it, it would be an attractive proposition for any manager to go to a team that performed like Leicester did last season and if they stay up there will not be aa shortage of funds.

I am hoping he sees a project here at the club to move us even further up the ladder over the next few years and hopefully the new owners have given an indication of a willingness to spend on the right players

I don't think he will go to Leicester, he is onto a good thing here, fan expectation is lower than at Leicester after them winning the league plus he's got a stable chairman. He needs a long-term income to pay for his court debts and the best guarentee is with us. At Leicester what if he gets them relegated? It could be his last top-flight job if it went horribly which could hit his pocket. I think he would keep them up anyway, but I think with us he's got a safe job.

Boingus, you've got to be on the wind up there eh? This is our best ever points total at this stage of a Premier League season and still that's not good enough for you?

You talk about Pulis not winning anything, not many managers have and you're dreaming if you think Wenger will come here. And as for Ranieri, an amazing season but this season he couldnt get the team going and Leicester's football is hardly amazing.

The platform is there thanks to Pulis and he has shown this season that he can improve so I don't see why he shouldn't get a shot at doing what he can.  Eventually he will move on but while he's here, and our performances and results are good we should get behind him.

8th! We are at a ceiling position wise as we don't have the budget to break into the top 6 and even Everton spend far more than we do.  Our next step should be to make finishing top half a regular occurance.

Just appeared on my twitter feed... Haven't checked its veracity.
If true, shows the superb job TP is doing here.

The November fact is true but the teams concerned have actually played one game less than ourselves so in all likelihood will overtake or equal our points total once the rest of the weekends games have been played. Not withstanding running at nearly 2 points across 16 games is a healthy return

Hey boingus,are you really a baggie?
Don't get your thinking mate,why would tone want to leave to go from 8th to 18th?
Money or the challenge?
We will pay him as much as Leicester can.
Challenge,his final challenge is ours.
I think we will be a force next season, whereas Leicester will be in chumps league.
Perhaps you are a fox in the throsles nest.
