Newcastle United fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to have their say on speculation that the club are looking to appoint Tony Pulis in the summer.
According to a recent report in The Daily Mail, Pulis is among the candidates Newcastle will consider should Rafael Benitez leave the club at the end of the 2015-16 campaign.
After all, having been in charge of clubs such as Real Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea, would the Spaniard really be interested in managing a team in the Championship?
Pulis is in charge of West Bromwich Albion at the moment and has a contract until June 2017. The Welshman’s playing style is not entertaining, but he is a manager who gets the job done.
The former Stoke City and Crystal Palace boss knows how to get clubs out of the Championship and keep them in Premier League.
Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation that Pulis is a managerial candidate for next season.

Charnley appointing Pulis to get us out of the championship would be so #nufc. Total disconnect between club and what supporters want.— Sics (@SimoCee73) April 10, 2016
If Charney is allowed to appoint Pulis as manager that will be enough for me #nufc— Michael Martin (@tfeditor1892) April 10, 2016
