The chants of ‘We are staying up’ rang out from Stoke City’s fans after the club was rescued from the drop at QPR’s expense.
But there were no songs of support for manager Tony Pulis, despite Stoke almost certainly assuring Barclays Premier League football for a sixth season.
Pulis’s relationship with Stoke fans is suffering because his side scores under a goal a game.
Taken for granted Tony Pulis has established Stoke in the Premier League
So something has to give, whether that be a change of manager or a change in their manager’s approach if next season is not to be a carbon copy of this one.
