Tony Pulis’s future at West Bromwich Albion has remained under deep clouds. The Baggies have mustered just two wins in the Premier League so far and another defeat against Chelsea at the Hawthorns has left the Baggies with not much of a choice than sacking him.
Sacking managers has become the newest trend this season and Pulis could be the new entrant into this category. Clubs have become very restless in a bid to find some quick success and as a result, they don’t think twice before showing the door to the gaffer.
Everton, West Ham United and Crystal Palace all have parted ways with their managers and it won’t be a surprise if Pulis sees himself outside West Brom in the near future.
Boring and monotonous football won’t win you games and Pulis needs to understand that. He is there at the club for nearly three years but the project he has been trying to implement hasn’t seen its completion so far.
Pulis admitted if he is sacked he will not have any complaint. “If there comes a time where everyone thinks this is not going to happen, this is not going to be right, then fine.
“I am big enough, old enough and been around the block enough to know that is the cut off time.
“If the club decide what they decide, I have great respect for everyone at the football club – the supporters, the chairman, the board.”
If the Baggies decides to part ways with the manager, let’s have a look at three possible options who could arrive at the Hawthorns.
The Baggies have placed themselves pretty dangerously in the 17th position and are only one point adrift of the relegation zone. Their priority would be to survive relegation and who better than Sam Allardyce could get them out of this situation.
Big Sam has a pretty envious record when it comes to saving a club from the drop and he would be the perfect man to take up the job. A short-term contract until the end of the season would be perfect.
The Republic of Ireland manager’s position has been put under scanner following their 5-2 thrashing at the hands of Denmark in the World Cup qualifiers. The 65-year-old has a good connection with the midland clubs and could be tempted with a job in the Premier League.
The Croatian manager has just been sacked by West Ham following poor performance and would love to have another crack in the top tier.
