Tony Pulis' West Brom Future In Doubt After Transfer Debacle
Tony Pulis is not everyone's cup of tea. Actually he's more like a Bovril so "Tony Pulis is not everyone's cup of Bovril" is more apt. You can't deny though that the West Brom manager is effective. However he's also quite an explosive character and that could see him leave the club.
The Welshman has previous when it comes to leaving teams out of the blue having left Crystal Palace in the summer of 2014 on the eve of the season after a falling out over the club not backing him in the transfer window and transfers could be his demise at the Hawthorns too.
West Brom were active on Wednesday as the transfer window closed bringing in Hal Robson Kanu on a free transfer and signing Allan Nyom from Watford for £4 million. However the club's failure to sign a central midfielder was seemingly pinned on Pulis by chairman John Williams and according to the Times the manager is thinking of leaving.

The issue centres on the clubs move for central midfielder Ignacio Camacho, whose release fee of £15 million the club triggered, with the manager deciding against signing him and instead pursuing William Carvalho. In the end the club missed out on both men and Williams seemed to blame his manager saying:
"We were a long way down the road with a deal, which for the second time in the window would have broken the club transfer record, thanks to the on-going support of Jeremy Peace and Guochuan Lai.
"But it was decided for footballing reasons not to pursue this. Despite it being late in the window, we decided to pursue another high-quality target. Unfortunately, we were not able to get the deal over the line. The one disappointment we suffered was not being able to add a further quality midfield player."
It will be interesting to see if the failed deals lead to Pulis calling it a day and I certainly wouldn't put it past him!
