What's wrong with Pulis' rolling contract?
The national media appear to have been taken by surprise with the news that Tony Pulis is more than happy with a one year rolling contract.
Media speculation at the weekend was rife with news that Tony was going to be offered a 'new three year contract' but it has been swiftly rebuffed by the Stoke manager who told them that he was quite happy with his rolling contract.
That should come as no surprise to Stoke fans who'll remember that he insisted on a rolling contract during the Icelandic regime back in 2005 - and was then promptly sacked just weeks after signing it.
At the time, he said that he preferred the 'never ending contract' over a fixed term contract because of two previous contract disputes that he's had with the chairmen of Portsmouth and Gillingham.
At least, this time around, TP seems to have an excellent relationship with his current chairman, Peter Coates: 'I have the best chairman in the world, so I don't have to be looking over my shoulder at my contract situation all the time.'
It's no coincidence that the Potters' current run of success just may be down, in no small part, to the managerial stability in the club.
