Pulis Named New Wednesday Boss

This evening Tony Pulis has been officially announced as the new manager of The Owls.

The 62 year old takes over from Garry Monk who was dismissed earlier this week, Pulis was probably best known for his second spell as manager at Stoke City where he stayed for almost seven years. However, he took the reins more recently in the Premier League at Crystal Palace and West Bromwich Albion before latterly taking up the post as gaffer at Middlesbrough.

Pulis started his career off the pitch way back in 1992 at Bournemouth before moving to Gillingham, then he head to Bristol City and Portsmouth before his first stint in the Potteries with Stoke City. A brief sojourn to Plymouth Argyle preceded his second spell with Stoke, a spell in which he took them to the Premier League and eventually into Europe despite what was seen as an attritional, almost percentage based style of football.

The Welshman left the Britannia Stadium for the capital when he joined Crystal Palace in November 2013, before he was back a little further north linking up with West Brom where he stayed for just shy of three years before joining Boro late in 2017 and he left the North East club after an unsuccessful tilt for promotion at the end of the 2018/19 season.

Now, over 1,000 games after starting his managerial career, Pulis takes up the post at Hillsborough looking to revive the fortunes of the club starting with the game against Preston North End after the end of the current international break.

Over the last few days Wednesday fans had given their opinion on the prospect of the experienced manager coming into Hillsborough as gaffer, and it's fair to say opinion isn't tremendous. However, should Pulis get us firing from minute one... Maybe.... Just maybe.... Opinion may change?
