“The performances and results have not been of the level expected since Tony Pulis was appointed. There are also other issues which have had a bearing on this decision,” chairman of the club said in a statement. 

“On the pitch, seven points from a possible 30 is not acceptable. It is vital we maintain our Championship status and I feel I must make a change now with over half of the season remaining to give us the best possible chance of doing so.”

Neil Thompson will replace the former coach Pulis. 

While he was in charge of Stoke City, Pulis was famous for a tough defending system that turned Stoke City into one of the most strongest defending system of the league. However, after departing the club, Pulis has gone through several clubs without any consistent long-term plan.
