Paul Merson has a warning for West Bromwich Albion supporters

West Bromwich Albion fans have started to put pressure on manager Tony Pulis.

Paul Merson has warned West Bromwich Albion fans that want Tony Pulis out that they could end up in a situation like Charlton Athletic if they do get rid of the Welsh boss.

Sections of Baggies fans have grown frustrated with Pulis’s managerial style this season and have bemoaned the lack of entertainment on display at The Hawthorns.

However, Merson feels that anybody asking for Pulis to be sacked should be careful what they wish for.

“You look at Alan Curbishley at Charlton. Stay up, stay up, stay up and then people say this is getting boring,” Merson said to Sky Sports Soccer Saturday, which was broadcast on February 27th.

“They get rid of him. They’ve never been back and don’t even look like coming back. That’s the problem.

“If Pulis wasn’t manager of West Brom they’d be in a far worse position than they are now.”

Charlton are currently sat rock bottom of the Championship and look destined to be a League One club next season.

The Addicks have not returned to the Premier League since they were relegated in the 2006/07 season.

West Brom, on the other hand, look to be certain of their place in the top flight under the guidance of Pulis.

The Baggies are currently in 13th place in the Premier League standings, and they have built up a 12-point gap over the bottom three.

Pulis’s side have also scored five goals in their last two outings, and have started to show far greater willingness to attack in recent weeks.
