West Bromwich coach Pulis signs contract extension

West Bromwich coach Pulis signs contract extension”

West Bromwich Albion Head Coach Tony Pulis has signed a contract extension, keeping him at the Hawthorns until 2019.

But Pulis remains far from satisfied with his squad depth, as he expressed his desperate need to secure further reinforcements before the transfer window shuts on August 31.

Pulis also pointed to the "improvement all across the club in recent seasons", which he stated as a necessity, in what he called, "such a tough, tough league".

"I believe that there's a tremendous talent pool in there and if that talent can not be realised immediately within our own ranks it is vital we get them out into league football to continue their development and education".

"How we never scored more than one I just don't know". The next few weeks are really vital.

New West Brom striker Jay Rodriguez smashed an early effort in on goal which Bournemouth's new goalkeeper Asmir Begovic saved superbly to deny the hosts a lead. He has brought a lot of energy to the football club.

West Brom went close with a header at the back post as they looked more unsafe with Bournemouth having more possession but failing to do much with it. We had really good opportunities and chances, we are not a possession team. "And you have got to give credit to Matt Phillips and Chris Brunt; the quality coming into the box was fantastic".

West Brom continued their dominance from set pieces in the second half as Claudio Yacob headed into the side-netting.

"I've said all along that we are in a building phase which requires a step by step process".

"The build-up to the goal was very disappointing". The pitch was slow, and that is not an excuse.

Rodriguez was preferred to Salomon Rondon in attack for the hosts and he nearly marked his bow with a goal in the ninth minute, Asmir Begovic saving smartly from the striker's snap-shot. "There is obviously stuff for us to work on".
