    That would be a crazy decision if the board were to even consider this…

    I will freely admit that you guys are in a much better position to judge Pulis as being in Leeds I really don’t get to see many live 90-minute games, rather match of the day highlights and the odd Sky live game when we’re on.
    I liked our summer transfer business and we’ve got some very good players in our squad thanks to Pulis, so I think all round there’s no one I’d replace him with right now…it could be so much worse! Look st Sunderland and Newcastle.
    Pulis gives the whole club stability on and off the pitch, so I’m a big fan.
    Boing boing! Si

    Hi all, Mark has mentioned that Football365 is our sister site, and we’re in the process of redesigning all the websites in our portfolio.
    I’m now head of UK editorial operations for Ole Media Group, and we own Footyplace, PlanetRugby, PlanetF1, Football411, Golf365 and Cricket365.
    We’ve taken over TEAMtalk and Football365 so all the staff work from our Leeds city centre office.
    We wanted to get the sites responsive on mobile devices for many years while under Sky Sports but never got the green light.
    The sites always looked great on desktops but were terrible on phones and tablets, so we’re chuffed to have changed that.
    James (TT Editor) and Mark (TT deputy) are working closely with our developers on a daily basis to polish the site and we’re getting there – but for now enjoy reading Your Says from the stadiums and posting live after games. Cheers Si

    First of all what a joy it is to be able to do this on my iPhone mate! Over 70% of Internet use is on phones these days so we had to drag TT into the digital world and hopefully you’ll all enjoy.
    Now then Pulis – I have to admit I bloody love the guy.
    I absolutely loved the Megson era so don’t mind direct football with an emphasis on not conceding goals.
    I didn’t like Pulis and his early Stoke style – but I think he has evolved as a manager and likes to have pace and power in his teams now.
    He has a fantastic knack of attracting top players to somewhat unattractive clubs / and carries out media duties with great care and professionalism – so long may he continue at our wonderful club.
    Your thoughts?

    Hi guys, it’s Si Wilkes, the old TEAMtalk Editor who ran the site from 2001-2014…I’m now head of editorial operations for Ole Media Group and we run TT from our Leeds office. We’d been wanting to make the sites work on mobiles and ipads for many, many years while we were at Sky Sports, but never got the green light.
    We’ve had some teething problems but the site finally looks good on mobile devices, which is amazing and makes it so much easier.
    Hope you enjoy it now Your Says are back.

    Hope you have a cracking season – I’m a West Brom fan so am looking forward to another three points from the game at Old Trafford 😉
