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.

Top, top post.

I notice the club captain is already up Puli's backside trying to make sure he keeps his place.

One word of warning, Mr. Brunt.

Pulis doesn't like talking - I likes it when players walk the walk.

Improve, or you're out!

At the moment he is still club captain and has to give interviews to the website and press. What would you expect him to say? "I didn't want Al to go and I've never been keen on hoofball but I'll give him a chance and maybe he will get us playing football in a decent style"?

It seems to me that some people just want to have a go at Brunt for any reason they can possibly find.

I agree with you but its true that there has been way too much talking a good game for a long while, Mr Pulis will not be swayed by such platitudes.

On a side note, JP had a big smile on his face yesterday chatting to Pulis.

Not sure what people really expect. He's captain and so obviously gives his backing to the new guy.

Pulis will see through the bullsh*t though, so it's fine

Got thinking about Pulis and his visits with Stoke , for obvious reasons I've mentally buried most of them. ;D
One time that does stick in my mind was a 1-0 home defeat on a Bank Hoilday weekend , if i remember right they came with a huge amount of injuries and stuck the reserve right back up front having him run his heart out (Shotton i think was his name) ....we couldn't break them down at all and Shotton tapped home after a mix up for our usual defeat. I hope we become that mentally strong!

I remember watching the Stoke back line under Pulis - they were so impressive - always stuck together and kept a fantastically we'll-disciplined shaped. It looked almost impossible to penetrate without getting caught off-side. They broke with such pace with big Jones upfront - that style of play can be very exciting. Not unlike us under Megson when we had  Jason Roberts upfront.

Will there be anywhere we can listen/watch the press conference this afternoon?

I'd be interested to hear what ideas Pulis has and how positive he is about the rest of the season.

Yes pretty sure Foster came rushing out and Shotton scored. That was a terrible day
Think Foster bottled it last minute and allowed him to get a toe poke in. Really felt like we were cursed against them that day.

Having been up the ground this morning and seeing lots if people getting tickets for tomorrow and judging the mood on here over the last few days it seems like a massive cloud as been lifted from over the hawthorns, and at the moment it is beginning to feel good to be a baggie again!!!

First training ground pictures courtesy of the E&S.

What a bunch of clowns. What do Sess├Ęgnon and Berahino look like wrapped up like that!!!

What a bunch of tossers. Sums up in one picture EVERYTHING that is wrong with Professional football of today. If I was Pulis I'd tear all that rubbish away from their head and faces. It's not even bloody cold today! Were they not intending to do anything to actually warm up in training?? They are supposed to be professional athletes for gods sake, not a bunch of bloody gangsters! Just imagine what Hagan would have done with that lot in the winter of 1964.

Is this the first time Sky Sports have televised our new managerial/head coach appointment live? If it is it signals the significance of the appointment,

No doubt the appointment of Tony Pulis will, positively, raise the profile of West Bromwich Albion
My posts are my personal views and any links or external inclusions are not necessarily an endorsement by me.

It's all about opinions, so don't shoot the messenger if he/she has a different view to you!
