Former Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has lasted just TEN games as Sheffield Wednesday boss after being sacked late on Monday evening.
It’s a move that has shocked the footballing world due to the brief time he had spent at Hillsborough.
As ever, when it comes to Pulis, the City fans have had plenty to say about the situation.
There’s certainly a lot of support for the capped crusader, and plenty of venom aimed at Sheffield Wednesday.
JasonDavies303: What did the board expect a “Miracle Worker”???
TP seems you are better off working for Sky as a pundit instead of working for disrespectful employers
Contact Mark Hughes heard he is available for work
Arthur Jones: You know what you get with Pulis 10 games it’s a joke he would have kept you up
Chris Shenton: Surprised he went there in the first place shocking club
Wayne Simcock: Might not be the best football to watch but he’d keep them in the championship
Andy Clifford: Bit of a shock. Was he given enough time to turn things around? Not even given a transfer window
Steven Smith: Still never been relegated
Barry Mountford: I’m a Stokie and I will be eternally grateful that we appointed TP, he got us back in the Prem and enabled me and my two small sons to watch The Mighty Potters in the top flight of English football just like I did with my Dad, decades before .Summats happened there, Wednesday’s loss IMO!
Phil Parkin: Joke of a club. Hope they go down now!
Semis: What a stupid decision, I hope that they do go down now, you don’t treat managers like that.
Pulis had stressed how difficult the job was going to be.
He had said after a 0-0 draw with his old club Stoke City in November: “It’s a tough gig this one. it’s going to be a tough gig.”
Wednesday had been in awful form under Monk and have won just three of 21 league games at home in 2020, failing to score in 10 of those.
They haven’t scored twice in a game since September – 21 matches ago – and have only scored 12 times in the league. Only shot-shy Derby (10) have scored fewer.
Reports suggested, however, that Pulis was yet to meet Chansiri to discuss the transfer window.
Veteran Sheffield sports reporter Alan Biggs said: “Wow. January issues & straight talking certainly suggested a possible split. But another you couldn’t see coming. At least not yet…”
