Sheffield Wednesday line up move for 61-y/o manager as Bullen’s potential replacement

Sheffield Wednesday are lining up a move for former Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis, according to The Sun. 

The Owls have struggled in recent weeks, and fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to QPR on Saturday, to leave them sitting 10th in the Championship table heading into the international break.

The report from The Sun claims that Lee Bullen’s position as manager of Sheffield Wednesday is under review, and the club could be tempted to make a change in the dugout.

Bullen took charge of the Owls at the start of the season, after Steve Bruce left to join Newcastle United.

They’ve struggled for consistency in their results this season, and that is something that needs to be improved at the earliest of opportunities if they are to stand a chance of finishing in the play-off places.

Pulis has been out of work since he was dismissed at the end of last year’s league campaign with Middlesbrough, as they missed out on a top-six finish in the Championship.

A poor run of form in the second-half of last season saw Boro miss out on a chance to win promotion via the play-offs, so it didn’t come as a surprise to see the club not renew Pulis’ contract.

It remains to be seen as to whether Sheffield Wednesday have made a formal approach to try and sign Pulis, but it’s set to be an interesting few weeks ahead at Hillsborough with the pressure seemingly growing on Lee Bullen.

The Verdict:

I can see why they’re after him to be honest.

Pulis has experience of managing at this level, and got Stoke out of the Championship a number of years ago.

Although supporters might be a bit reluctant to see him arrive due to his style of football, there aren’t many better options that know the division as well as Pulis does.
