Southampton want Pulis as new boss

Southampton want Pulis as new boss

The national media are reporting that Southampton are prepared to wait until the end of this season in order to appoint Tony Pulis as their new manager.

Since Pulis still lives in Bournemouth he has long been linked to the vacant post at St. Mary's and we'd have been amazed if he would want to jump ship whilst the Potters still have a realistic chance of promotion to the Premier League.

But I'm even more surprised that the Saints are prepared to steer a rudderless ship for the remainder of the season just to see if Pulis can be tempted in May should the Potters not gain promotion.

Saints are in an offer period. If someone buys the club then they will want their own man. To be honest Stoke are welcome to Pulis. They are in 4th granted but is it beacuase he is a "great manager". I think attitude is more important than great tactics in the championship so i would prefer a manager that would lift the club from the doledrums. A former player that everyone could get behind rather than wait and pass jugement on.....Shearer....Shearer....Shearer

I'd rather be us than you mate! Your best days have gone so stop thinking you're a big club. You could do a LOT worse than TP. I was one of his biggest critics and have had to eat my words after what's been happening at SCFC this season. I still don't agree with some of his tactics and sub decisions but you can't take away the fact that he's turned us into real promotion candidates.........................................Seems funny seeing Jesus on here as Easter approaches:-O
