A four goal hammering at home to Chelsea has proved the final straw with Tony Pulis.

West Brom announcing on Monday morning that he has been sacked.

The Baggies opened the season with wins over Bournemouth and Burnley but it is now three months since their last Premier League win.

In total, Tony Pulis has only had two wins in his last 21 Premier League matches, going back to March 2017.

They currently stand  fourth bottom and only one point above the relegation zone, having added only four draws in their last 10 games.

West Brom have a trip to Wembley on Saturday and are unlikely to change anything there, so will then face Newcastle United in a massive match in eight days time at the Hawthorns.

With the time it is taking to appoint new managers this season and the lack of stand out candidates, it looks all but certain that former Newcastle midfielder Gary Megson will be in charge when Rafa’s team visit.

Megson was assistant to Tony Pulis and has agreed to take charge of team affairs until a decision is made on the new boss.

I’m guessing that all Newcastle fans will be hoping a new manager isn’t announced in the meantime, as at least just in the very short-term it invariably produces some improvement, as players try to impress the new boss.

West Brom Official Statement:

‘West Bromwich Albion have today terminated the contract of Head Coach Tony Pulis.

Chairman John Williams said: “These decisions are never taken lightly but always in the interests of the Club.

“We are in a results business and over the back end of last season and this season to date, ours have been very disappointing.

“We would like to place on record our appreciation of Tony’s contribution and hard work during a period of transition for the Club which included a change of ownership. We wish him well in his future endeavours.”

Assistant Head Coach Gary Megson has agreed to take charge of first-team affairs until further notice.’

    What worries me is if Fatso decides not to sell Rafa will walk and Pulis would be right up Lardy’s street as a replacement !

      my thoughts exactly

  • Soldier

    this is the sort of situation you don`t want, their form may well improve just at the wrong time for us

  • Rich Lawson

    Why do so many under performing clubs get a new manager and a bounce just before they play us ? Hopefully,Megson,a very unlikeable individual will still be in charge (before being bombed out by the new manager) when we play them ?

  • MichaelMaximusMoose

    That`s Spewlis & the Scumbag Pardspew looking for a job. bet they are on Fatso`s radar if the Boss walks

    Fat Sham Hippo Heed written all over this one,I’m surprised to see he’s never managed any club from near where he was born.
