West Brom continued their solid start to their campaign with a hard earned 1-1 draw with the in form Tottenham on Saturday.

West Brom have been in good form at the beginning of this Premier League season with a string of impressive results meaning they currently occupy 12th place in the table, above last season's champions Leicester. While it has been a good start for Tony Pulis, it could prove to be not enough as the Express and Star have reported that West Brom are in no rush to renew his contract, which runs out at the end of the season.

The Baggies have claimed two wins this season, along with four draws and only two loses. While it has been an unspectacular start, it has not been a disappointing one as Pulis' side are building a strong foundation for their campaign. Too often do teams look to explode out of the blocks, before losing all confidence and form and then becoming embroiled in a relegation scrap at the end of the season.

West Brom's manager is far too experienced to willingly allow something like that to happen though. While the fans may not be overly enamoured with their team's style of play, it is effective, and it is earning them valuable points.

Against Tottenham, they were completely dominated by the London side who should have really won the game. However, a strong defensive performance and a starring role from goalkeeper Ben Foster kept the scores level until late, at which time Nacer Chadli rifled a shot home.

The fans broke out in jubilant celebration as it seemed to be the winning goal, however, Dele Alli managed to stroke the ball into the bottom corner to restore parity with minutes to go. While it would have been a huge disappointment to drop two points from that winning position, West Brom were deserving of their one point from the way they defended.

However, not everyone seems to agree with Pulis' methods as the Express and Star have reported that: "this summer, season ticket renewals at The Hawthorns fell considerably".

While it seems some of the fans are not content with their side and their manager, West Brom's new owner, Guochuan Lai seems happy to asses his options in his own time as the Express and Star reported: "The club’s controlling stakeholder is planning to take stock of performances over the coming weeks with new chairman John Williams as he begins his tenure at the helm in earnest".

With Pulis' contract running out in the summer, time is running out for the Welshman. However, Pulis did admit: "It doesn’t worry me at all. I am quite confident in my own ability and in myself and if we sit down and talk about a new contract we do, if we don’t, we don’t".

Pulls has never been one to take a backwards step and he is a very confident an able manager. West Brom have looked like a more solid team with him at the helm, but a change in management which would bring in a new style might be what the fans want to see, but this does bring with it it's own risks.

However, Lai, back in August, is already reported to have said: "I believe that we have a competitive team, with the right management and coaching staff in place".

If Lai stands by his comments from August, then it seems like Pulis is going nowhere.
