:roll:

I can't see another Pulis team play football. Its just mind numinous how dull it is. Worse then stamp ball.

In fairness to Campbell, he's not exactly taken on the easiest jobs and he's not been a complete disaster. At least he might get paid at Wednesday.

Would it be while he carries on playing for City though?

Possibly, but he is 34 now. I wouldn't be starting him over Moore or Morrison and I would rather see TMc and Holmes be given more chances if they come up, plus we have Gibson as well.

Think resources would be better allocated elsewhere than CB where I think we have quite good cover.

Might have been a better short term deal than Esteves for RB.

But probably a lot more expensive too.

Agree and for some reason Mcdermott played Gorks/Pearce ahead of him in the Prem - neither of whom were ever remotely prem quality players

So Pulis rocks up at Wednesday.

I'm pleased we don't go with the usual Championship chairman default position which seems to be Warnock/Pulis/Monk/Rowett in that order depending on who's available

Great. More Pulis ball. Most boring style of play in English football

Then when you get to the prem it is Hughton, allardyce, pardew, moyes

Probably guarantees they'll stay up, which will be the limit of their ambition this season.

I hope them and Derby go down. According to them we have no history even though Weds haven't been near the prem in 20 years and Derby were a joke last time.

Yep. Totally agree with this. Both Wednesday and Derby have got a massive chip on their shoulder about how big they used to be etc etc.
Love to see them struggling :D

Unsurprising as Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan’s takeover of Derby is expected to go through this week so possibly little point in removing Cocu too much beforehand. Meanwhile Liam Rosenior/James Walker/Wayne Rooney and Shay Given have been given temporary charge of team affairs while rumours are already linking Mauricio Pochettino and Eddie Howe to the vacant role.

Pretty sure Pulis has frozen out Bannan before (at Palace), and he's certainly one of their better players and being honest, Bannan is hardly the sort of Pulis type player

Paterson on the other hand :lol:
