Gareth Barry: Win over Chelsea can kick-start West Brom's season

Gareth Barry: Win over Chelsea can kick-start West Brom's season”

"We are one win off where we were previous year when we ended up being in eighth position more than anywhere else".

"I understand. The more you give, the more people want".

The feeling within The Hawthorns is that Pulis could be on the brink if there is more of the same disquiet - in particular in the stands - at home against Chelsea on Saturday, when Guochuan Lai, the club's owner, will be looking on from the directors' box after arriving from China for a visit that was scheduled six weeks ago but now feels rather timely.

"We have been unfortunate", he said.

"I inherited those players and we finished 13th that year".

The experienced manager took charge of the Baggies in 2015 and has led them to Premier League finishes of 13th, 14th and 10th. Like every team, if you don't have your best players, especially at the top end of the pitch, you're going to struggle.

Bowling Green man charged with assaulting Sen. Paul
Paul's office said in a statement the former Republican presidential candidate "was blindsided and the victim of an assault". Hodges did say that Boucher is an acquaintance of Paul, an ophthalmologist who was elected to the Senate in 2010.

He added: "If the club decide what they decide, I have got great respect for everybody at the football club, from the supporters to the chairman, to the board".

"Since I've been here, this club has been nowhere near getting relegated". We've scored two goals in each of the last two and not won the game. The Spanish striker has scored four goals with his head already and West Brom, surprisingly, have conceded the most headed attempts per team.

West Brom, meanwhile, remain without James Morrison (Achilles) and Craig Dawson (knee), but Pulis otherwise has a fully fit squad of players to choose from as he seeks to halt the Baggies' decline in form.

However, Pulis has delivered just two wins from his last 20 top-flight fixtures, and the Welshman has acknowledged that results must improve if he is to keep his job at The Hawthorns.

Fans have never been to keen on Pulis' direct style of play, but when the results are there it's hard to complain too much.

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis would not blame the club if he was sacked due to their poor start to the English Premier League season, he said on Friday. "No one has to tell me the results have to get better".
