The future of Tony Pulis at Middlesbrough was certainly a hot topic of conversation between the Boro supporters after they didn’t finish inside the top six.
It has been reported by Teeside Live today, that the Boro boss is expected to depart the club in the next week after the club opted not to renew his contract.
This won’t come as a surprise to many supporters, who were keen to see the back of him after a poor run of results saw them drop out of the play-off places after a positive start to this year’s campaign.
Pulis only signed an 18-month deal when he signed along the dotted line at the Riverside and senior officials at the club evidently aren’t satisfied with the club not making the top six before the season reached a conclusion.
It remains to be seen as to whether this report is true, but it’s certainly going to add further questions as to how long Pulis has got left at the club.
But are Middlesbrough making the right decision in reportedly not renewing Pulis’ contract?
“The right move? They should have done it during the season.
“It’s not just right, it’s absolutely critical.
“Tell me, what has he done that Garry Monk didn’t?
“They pulled the trigger too early on Monk and they’ll pay the price for years to come.”
“This is the correct decision.
“Pulis hasn’t had the impact he would have hoped for in his time with Middlesbrough, and the fans started to turn on him towards the end of the season.
“His seemingly imminent departure would be the best scenario for both parties involved here.”
“It is definitely the right decision.
“Boro are now heading backwards under him and it is a slide that needs to be halted as soon as possible.
“Getting somebody in who can rebuild and get them heading in the right direction is definitely the right step.”
