Pulis breaks his silence over Murphy rant

Pulis breaks his silence over Murphy rant

Tony Pulis has broken his silence after the comments made by Fulham's Danny Murphy last week.

Murphy's comments don't deserve repeating yet again but they're typical of the double standards that abound in professional football and it's reporting by the media these days and the stereotyping that goes on by people who don't take the time and trouble to find out the facts first.

Unusually for our Tone, he chose to read a prepared statement at his pre-match press conference rather than risk any off the cuff remarks - probably so there was no chance of any misinterpretation by the press and to ensure that he was able to get his points across in a fair and factual way.

If you want to hear and see for yourself what he said, you're best going to the official club website where there is a free-to-view video.

It's clear that he's very upset by the Fulham player's comments which also dragged in Mick McCarthy and Sam Allardyce but omitted to include some terrible tackles by Liverpool and Man City players this season. It's no surprise that here at Vital Stoke we're 110% behind our manager and team and the Boothen End will already be relishing the visit of Fulham to the Brit on December 28th - don't worry Danny, we will not have forgotten this.

murphy was 100 right. on another note i seriously don't even know why you guys have a coach. it seems any clown with half a brain could tell your players tackle hard, hoof it up, and get at the end of delap's throws. the man of the match at your home games are always the ball boys/towel boys. do you employ the same ball boys as wimbledon? they seem to be pretty quick with the towels as well. i have made a lot of mistakes in my life but the biggest one was to watch the stoke v blackburn game a few weeks ago. will never get that time back and it has scarred me for life. i only have myself to blame though.
