He said: “Tony Pulis is a seasoned manager. If anybody could have turned their fortunes around, it would have been Tony and he didn’t last two minutes, and I think that’s because the chairman, reading between the lines, promised him money to spend in the transfer window and there were no funds available.”

During Pulis’ fairly short spell at Hillsborough, the club won one game, drew four and lost five, ultimately leading to his departure, making it his shortest stint at a club throughout his substantial career in management (per Transfermarkt).

Last month, Wednesday hired Darren Moore to take the reins at the club on a permanent basis.

According to an article from Sky Sports, Pulis claimed that he had provided the club’s board with a list of players he wanted to sign during the previous January transfer window but disagreements over both budgets and personnel saw relations deteriorate significantly that ultimately led to his departure, as Palmer mentioned.

Do you blame Chansiri for Pulis' exit?





Moving forward, the best thing Wednesday can do now would be to stick with Moore until the end of the season, give him the summer transfer window to do his best to improve the squad within the financial boundaries the club are capable of providing and then start again next season in whichever league they end up in.
