Last quote by Tony Pulis

You could say most probably Manchester City are different because they will be hoping to win the championship, hoping to win the Champions League, the FA Cup and everything else. It's a club that with Pep [Guardiola] this year will win trophies so it's a difficult one for everyone.feedback

Tony Pulis quotes

Jul 17 2017 - Egypt

We're pleased he's here, he's a good addition. He's got good pedigree and has played for some good clubs. Hopefully he'll be a good signing for us. With it being a loan and, if he does well, we've already agreed a final deal. It's really, really good for us.feedback

May 15 2017

They've done fantastically well in their careers and I'm sure Pep will be determined to be closer than he's been this year in all the competitions.feedback

May 15 2017

Every club is run differently and every club that you pick up is in a different state. I can't comment on how tough it's been for Antonio and how tough it's been for Pep. They have their different problems. Antonio might have a had a situation where he can develop what he's got to what he wanted, whereas Pep might have had a situation where he couldn't develop that group for what he wanted and he needs to bring other people in.feedback

May 15 2017

It's very difficult to say just because of results based on one season. The two lads we're talking about, I've found them smashing people – really good football people, down to earth, genuine.feedback

May 13 2017

It's good working against the top managers, which Conte is. He's been fantastic. His enthusiasm and attitude but he's also very good tactically. I had a chat with him before the game and he recognised he had to change it earlier in the season, or he might have got changed himself. He's made it his team. Italian teams are tactically organised and well run. He changed their shape and they've been superb from that moment onwards.feedback

May 13 2017

They're worthy champions, they take a lot of credit and could do the double. They're a wonderful team and they've been the best. They had a poor start but recovered from that and have been the most consistent. We gave them a really tough game though. We wanted to make it difficult. Our quality let us down at times. We needed the break. It's the decisions that players make and a little bit of quality that makes the difference, but I can't fault the players. Chelsea got the goal and they deserve to win the league.feedback

May 13 2017

I've just heard Arsene say he was a bit surprised that we went direct. I'm not quite sure what game he's been watching, but there we go.feedback

May 13 2017

I don't think there was a yellow card. I don't know why the physical aspect of the game has to be mentioned.feedback

May 13 2017 - London

He commended my team's organisation, my team's commitment and confessed that on the day Stoke City thoroughly deserved to win the game. Very open and very honest. In London 48 hours later and 150 miles away from Stoke-on-Trent, Mr Wenger changed tack and has tried to rewrite history. Remember there was only one red card on Saturday and the last time I watched the game it certainly was not a Stoke City player who received it.feedback

May 13 2017

As for Rory Delap's challenges on Theo Walcott and Bacary Sagna, Rory is as honest and committed as they come. They were free-kicks, but Rory would never purposely go out to injure a fellow professional, it's just not in Rory's nature. Further, as I recall the game, Emmanuel Adebayor was booked for a chest-high challenge on Ryan Shawcross. I was more concerned about the Arsenal supporters booing Shawcross so I didn't hear the ones on Ramsey.feedback

May 13 2017

I know Shawcross, he has no bad blood in him whatsoever. It is a desperately sad day for football, for Aaron and for Arsenal. I accept that.feedback

May 12 2017

It is funny how things spin around. Seven or eight years ago Arsene Wenger was an absolute genius – he was a teacher and a prophet. He sat there and never got involved in the game and just worked things out from his seat. Now Conte is an absolute genius going mad and bouncing up and down on the touchline.feedback

May 08 2017

People who have been giving us stick don't understand. We will make a massive profit at the end of the season, this club is run very professionally. We have to survive and we do that very well.feedback

May 05 2017

We've got our fingers in the pie on quite a few players and we'll see how we go on those players. If Jermain's one of them, we'll be pushing on that one if we can. When Saido left we had Robson-Kanu and Salomon, a free transfer and a player that's only spent one season in the Premier League, so we knew that was an area we had to improve. There was no-one there at the time that we could get in. And I don't want to waste people's money by spending a lot of money on just a back-up. We have to try and bring players in who are going to improve the first XI and keep the club improving that way.feedback

May 05 2017

That's the way I've always thought about it, that's the way I try to approach it. That will certainly be one of the areas we're trying to improve.feedback

Apr 29 2017

You've seen the players running around today. It's the fourth game we've lost 1-0 and we could easily have won or drawn them.feedback

Apr 29 2017

I don't think we deserved to lose. It was a poor goal we conceded. Vardy scores those goals all the time and we talked about not leaving space behind us on the changeover. We had opportunities and the lads worked really hard. They had one chance and Vardy stuck it away. It's not as though the players have packed it in. We need a break and we're not getting it.feedback

Apr 28 2017

You have to be careful with the money that you're given. There will be a lot of activity everywhere and we're just hoping that we can sail under all the steam that's flying around and pick one or two good players out.feedback

Apr 28 2017

It's about getting the right players and we have a situation at this club where we want to stay solvent. We want to run it professionally so it's not just about throwing money down an empty hole. A lot of clubs have done that and not been very successful.feedback

Apr 16 2017

There are lots of priorities. If we want to push it on, which we do, then we have to try to get better. What this season has proved is that we do need that little bit more quality but we need a bit more depth as well and that's important.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - China

No, I think there have been other things back home that have gone on. I can't go into detail but there is something else on his mind which he has to worry about. I wouldn't say it is the interest from China, not at all. Everything has been fine but there has been a problem back home that is getting better for him which is good. We are pleased with that. He just needs a goal. He needs one to go in off the back of his head. Even second half he had an opportunity, he just needs that one break but he is not getting it at the moment.feedback

Apr 08 2017

We're trying to win games and when it comes that way you do get they attack, we attack. There was an instance in the first half where we'd been down there throats and they break straight away and have a chance and then we win it back and have half a chance at the other end. We're just trying to win games, I can't fault the players.feedback

Apr 08 2017

We've got to hit the target and be more clinical in front of goal. Southampton are a good side and I thought they created some good chances and good opportunities themselves but in the last 25 minutes I thought we really took over the game. That's when you need that little bit of composure to put the ball in the back of the net.feedback

Apr 07 2017

Money is still the main reason why most players move, but [finishing high up the table] helps. We know what we want. Whether we can get it or fill those slots with the players we want is another thing.feedback

Apr 01 2017 - Manchester United

If we won at the end, it would have been unjust. We are really pleased with the effort and commitment they put in today, United have some really good players.feedback

Mar 20 2017

Because he told me. I think he's the greatest manager Arsenal have ever had. They could finish in the top four and win an FA Cup – that's not too bad is it? I don't think respect counts now. People live for today. If you're asking me what Arsenal should or shouldn't do I'm the wrong person.feedback

Mar 20 2017

The game is all about results irrespective of what people do or don't say. I have young managers ringing me up now and the advice is simple – you have to win games. If you don't win games you will get criticism. I've always been one that accepts that criticism.feedback

Mar 17 2017

I get the feeling that Arsene most probably wants to be carried out in a box still managing a football club because that is the way he is. He is football nuts. I really do think people at Arsenal have given him total trust. He will go down in history as the greatest Arsenal manager and I think he wants to manage for another five or six years by the sounds of it.feedback

Mar 17 2017

I think he is a great manager and he has been fantastic. If you go back from when he started right through to a period of time where now people are complaining they haven't won the championship for a period of time and that just get to a certain stage in Europe. He is still managing one of great teams in Europe and they could finish in the top four and win the FA Cup. That would be a real tail-off! 'It is just two competitive people getting on with their lives and having a bit of a scrap here and there.feedback

Mar 17 2017

We will respect them. They are a top, top side – very talented. It is just about making sure you stay with them and stay in the game.feedback

Mar 17 2017

Wenger is moaning like a drain because it doesn't suit Arsenal. I've got nothing against foreign managers, they are very nice people. Apart from Arsene Wenger.feedback

Mar 12 2017

Money is the difference – it's always been the biggest factor, the calling card really to get top players. If you want top players then you have to pay that money, and if you are not doing it that way, you then have to try and produce your own, and we've got some good young players at our place.feedback

Mar 12 2017

You see players like Barkley who have that quality to make a difference. That's the best I've seen him play, and it can change games.feedback

Mar 11 2017

Conceding the two goals before half-time killed us. Before that we were in the game. Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley were outstanding.feedback

Mar 11 2017

The situation with John is that, from what I could gather in January, he wanted to stay with Chelsea. He wanted to be there and stay there and be part of going out as a champion. I'm not sure how many times he's won it with them but I think John wanted to stay there. If he becomes available in the summer we'll sit down and have a little think about what we've got and what we haven't got and we'll take it from there. There was no approach made, it was just about finding out what the situation was and the situation was that John wanted to stay at Chelsea.feedback

Mar 11 2017

That is for the summer, not now, and whether the situation changes, whether other people are involved or whether he signs another contract at Chelsea. We'll have to wait and see.feedback

Mar 10 2017

I'll sit down and have a chat, but there's no rush or problems in anything we do here. John keeps me in touch with what the Chinese are thinking. The Chinese owners, Mr Lai and all them, stay in touch with John so there's good communication between them. I think Mr Lai is over the the Arsenal game as well - and all the Chinese contigent. Matty Phillips won't be ft and that's a disappointment because we thought he would be fit for the Everton game. He's been a big miss for us in respect of what he brings to the team. That's a disappointment.feedback

Mar 10 2017

We have one or two knocks, but I think they'll be okay. If I'm going to make changes it will be for the fact that maybe one or two need a little bit more of a rest this time round.feedback

Mar 05 2017

I'm praying it was just a bad day at the office.feedback

Feb 11 2017

The players have played some smashing stuff at times. They kept fighting and fighting and never gave up. We have 13 games to go and we still need to try and get as many points as we can.feedback

Feb 05 2017

I shook hands with Eddie (Niedzwiecki, Stoke first-team coach) and Mark was walking away towards their supporters, so that was that.feedback
