They had a man sent off in the first half an hour and got a point out of the game. This is not one of the sticks to beat Pulis with. They did well to draw with high flying Reading in those circumstances

One should always beat Pulis with a stick, but in this particularly case I'm happy to laugh at SW for employing him.

Pulis has been in charge for more games (4) than they have had shots on target in those games. Admittedly they have been down to 10 men on two occasions.

As if Pulis would ever willingly buy Britt.

Furthermore, as if Britt would ever willingly work under Pulis again.

They bought Flint, so you never know.........

Pulis threw Britt under the bus at literally every possible opportunity he could.

I think it was a deliberate but crude attempt to make Britt instruct his agent to get him the heck out of here. If rumours are to be believed he would have likely ended up with a cut of the sale but the spin would have been yet again saving SG a fortune on wages and bringing some cash in (so he could waste it on more overpriced mediocrity).

If he did something about player discipline, maybe he wouldn't have to be so defensive?

2 sendings-off in 4 games doesn't bode well for their survival.

Yeah going down to 10 men is never really something anyone wants (other than the opposition). They had 1 shot on target in the 2 games they went down to 10 men. But they only had 2 shots on target in the 2 games they didn't have a man sent off so either way it's not exactly great reading. But regardless I think Pulis is heavily in favour of a defensive style, especially judging his time with us, alongside his previous clubs too.

Mainly for FFP reasons it would be poetic if Sheffield Wednesday and Derby both went down. 😂

A very respected and knowledgable (also a student of Pulis) once said that it’s harder to play against 10 men. I think we’re underestimating the genius of Tony in employing this tactic

Lee Johnson, last at Bristol City, is in talks to be the new Sunderland manager.

My own feeling is he won't do particularly well there.

I hope he doesn't take the job. He's a good manager! (Though the Mackems could probably ruin the reputation of anyone at the moment).

    • Perversely, I think we might win this one. Warnock seems to be able to say all the right things to the players before games against good teams, and he'll know how to outfox Mick McCarthy. I imagine there are some angry players in our dressing room after that Monk-esque performance against Bristol City, and I could see us coming out of the blocks with a point to prove. However, a win is irrelevant to our promotion chances, because we'll then fall apart against Coventry and get embarrassed again. Rinse, repeat.

    • I don't know anywhere near enough about St Pauli or Bundesliga 2 to really say if it means anything, but I notice Stojanovic has only kept 1 clean sheet in his 8 games there, letting in 13 goals. In the same period Bettinelli has played 10 homes, kept 2 clean sheets, and let in 16. Fairly similar statistically, though I've not actually watched their games and I imagine Stojanovic made more saves in that period.      
    • If we ask Pulis ..  Then we know what a fantastic captain and leader Saville should be about now!
    • But how, son?
