Middlesbrough fans would back Tony Pulis in the Premier League

Middlesbrough have had a very promising start to the Championship season. Four wins and two draws in their opening six games sees them in second place, tied with first place Leeds on points. 

At the helm of The Boro is veteran manager Tony Pulis, infamous for his Premier League outfits that were organised and able to squeeze out results. During his spells at Stoke, Crystal Palace and West Brom, he was never relegated, producing disciplined sides.

Although it looks as though he is doing a fantastic job at The Riverside Stadium so far this season, questions remain over his stylistic approach in the Premier League, and whether he would be able to cope with this Middlesbrough side if they were to get promoted. We asked you your thoughts on whether the Welshman is suited to the Premier League.

A staggering 75% of you said that you would have faith in the wily manager if The Boro were to get promoted. Fans obviously believe that Pulis still has the ability to survive in the Premier League, and can guide Middlesbrough to safety upon their return, if it happens.

While criticism may still surround Pulis over his style of play, he certainly has your backing for next season.
