Fuck off Tony Pulis

Recommended Posts

No problem with what he said, personally. Anfield's a much more inspiring place than the Britannia when it's at its best, but in general the Stoke mongs are still delirious to be in the top flight so every game is still pretty special to them. We say ourselves on many occasions that the Anfield atmosphere for league games (bar the obvious) isn't consistently great. They're absolute knuckle-draggers though, and the style of football and the fans seem to fit perfectly together.

 

Pulis doesn't generally annoy me - his teams play shit football but he doesn't pretend that he or his team are anything they're not (take notice Fat Sam). He's still a snivelling arse-kisser for the stunt he pulled with his players on loan at Preston.

So you agree it's fine to mention an nothing incident with GJ and completely ignore Huth's booking which was, should have, been a red ? Had that been Gerrard or any other Liverpool player, they would have been off, plain and simple . Let me guess, the retirement of rat face has got you down a little ?

 

Mong .

 

WTF? Get over your precious little self and you suck at guessing.

I am of the "stay quiet and let people assume you are an idiot" variety. I guess you prefer to shatter all doubts. Actually that wasn't a guess.

Aldo on the radio did say the Britannia had a much better atmosphere for the game at their place and that Anfield was very quiet, this was in the first half

 

To be fair you've got to expect a louder more hostile atmosphere at their place for this fixture as it's a massive game for them playing the mighty Liverpool and in essence what they strived to get into the Premier League for in the first place.

 

Whereas for us we're just playing little Stoke at home on a "wet and windy" Wednesday night. Aside from the new signings on show there's countless threads on how drab the atmosphere usually is at games like this so why should last night have been any different?

 

So in that respect Pullis' argument stands up.

 

Big European games at Anfield however, as we all know, are a different kettle of fish. I'd hazzard a guess that not even the mighty Britannia Stadium could match those!

Just wantched his Sky interview. Seriously deluding himself. I can live with Pulis and his team. Stoke fans are the pure arse-end of shit though.

Tony Pulis accused of fraudulent behaviour in High Court judgment on Crystal Palace exit and ordered to pay club £3.7m

 

By Jason Burt, Chief Football Correspondent

 

Tony Pulis’s reputation has been shredded in a High Court judgment against him in which he stands accused of acting fraudulently in engineering his departure from Crystal Palace immediately after receiving a £2million bonus.

 

In a damning judgement by Sir Michael Burton, Pulis has been ordered to pay Palace a total of £3,776,000 - £2,276,0000 for the repayment of the bonus plus liquidated damages of £1.5million. It is understood that costs could push that figure to more than £5million.

 

In a 32-page ruling the judge concluded there was no evidence to support Pulis, who challenged the findings of an independent mediation tribunal, set up under Football Association rules, which had declared that “his conduct...has been shown to be disgraceful” and he had “deliberately misled” Palace chairman Steve Parish so he could eventually find a better job.

 

The acrimonious dispute stemmed from August 2014 when Pulis, now the West Bromwich Albion manager, was due a £2million ‘survival’ bonus after guiding Palace to safety in the Premier League. Under his contract the payment was to be made at the end of August but Pulis asked Parish that he paid it early because he needed the money to purchase a plot of land for his daughter.

 

The tribunal suggested that Pulis "sought to play on Mr Parish's goodwill by referring to the land as being for his family (Mr Parish having recently attended the wedding of one of his daughters)."

 

The day after Pulis received the money he told a stunned Parish that he wanted to leave Palace.

 

It later transpired there had been a heated meeting with the players over bonus payments for them which Pulis had said took place on August 12 – the day before he said he wanted to go and the day he received his bonus – but was actually proved to have taken place four days earlier on August 8 after which the manager was said to have told the chairman he remained committed to the club.

 

Pulis called three players – Barry Bannan, Lewis Price and Stuart O’Keefe, all no longer at Palace – who gave evidence that they remembered the meeting as having taken place on August 12.  However the judge found that Parish was not at the training ground that day and that they must have misremembered. Palace additionally had telecommunications evidence, taxi receipts and rival statements to counter the claim, plus Parish was able to prove that he had a hairdressers' appointment that day. 

 

Pulis cited the meeting as a reason for him wanting out, believing his relationship with the club had broken down, but the judge backed the findings of the panel – compromised of three eminent QCs – that Palace were right about the date of the meeting.

 

The panel added that Pulis was “not willing to concede that the heated players’ meeting did not occur on August 12 because he otherwise had no explanation [for his departure]”. It went on that it was “more likely that he intended to seek more lucrative employment with another club” and that there was no evidence of an "imminent property transaction” – the reason why he said he needed the money in advance – and that “he deliberately gave Mr Parish the impression that he had a pressing need for the money”.

 

In one of the most damning passages of the tribunal’s findings, quoted by the judge in his ruling, it said that Pulis’s “conduct has been shown to be disgraceful”.

 

It added: "It is simply not credible that he [Pulis] could honestly say that he was happy and committed to the Club on 8 August and have changed his mind so completely by 13 August, when nothing had happened other than him having received £2million from the Club."

 

Judge Burton said he dismissed Pulis’s application to challenge the tribunal’s findings and ordered him to repay the bonuses, damages and legal costs “for deceit”.

 

The case was brought after Pulis challenged the findings of a tribunal which was set up under FA Rule K Arbitrations which is a legally sanctioned alternative resolution proceedings (under the Arbitration Act) and so is recognised in law. Palace can now enforce the right to be paid the money in the courts.

 

Pulis did a remarkable job at Palace when he took over from Ian Holloway in November 23 2013 on a two-and-a-half year contract as he guided them away from the threat of relegation, with just four points from 11 games, to 11th place. The 58-year-old was named Premier League manager of the year at the end of the season. After leaving Palace he joined West Brom the following January.
