Middlesbrough Appoint Tony Pulis

Recommended Posts

Well. That went worse than everybody expected. 

Despite being unimpressive they're still only three points off the playoffs. So to sack him now all seems a bit silly.

Won 2-1 at Sheffield Wednesday then sacked for Christmas afterwards. Seems a bit off, got to be more to it than meets the eye, otherwise morally the timing is questionable.

Rumours he is going back to Swansea and they knew it before the game. Boro fans reported that after the game Monk and his staff came over to the fans, his staff doing so is unusual.

Very odd to do it straight after a win.

He's not done a good job though, they've been very poor away from home and lost some shockers but I still wouldn't be backing against them going up.

Being sacked for unusual behaviour? Mourinho has made a career out of unusual behaviour

Being sacked for breaching his contract in talks with Swansea is the rumour, that way Boro get rid of him and they don't have to pay him off

Ah the beauty of gross misconduct. He’ll be awful back at Swansea. No doubt

Jacks are in serious shit. Huw 'The Messiah' Jenkins has pretty much sold them down the shitter and are selling off their best players (namely Sigurdsson, Ayew, Williams and Llorente) while replacing them with either poor quality (Bony the Pony) or a quality player that clearly doesn't want to be there in Renato Sanches.

They went from a model ran club to a soulless husk in no time at all. Sold their identity for cash, back to the lower leagues for Swansea

I've never ever gotten the fuss with Monk as a manager. Always found him very over-rated.

Excellent appointment - he'll be very good at that level.

I imagine he'll get them back up and consolidate for a couple of years.

Thank goodness he won't be back in the Premier League for a while longer.

It's a brave decision move for him. He can get away with not winning a while when he's aiming for 40 points but he can't do that with a side that expect promotion.

He'll have them up next season I reckon.

Their fans I've seen on Twitter are buzzing with this.
