Tony Pulis Joins Premier League ‘100 Club’

West Bromwich Albion’s 1-2 loss at home to Bournemouth on Saturday saw manager Tony Pulis record his 100th Premier League loss as a manager.

In the process, Pulis becomes only the 15th manager in the history of the competition to accrue so many losses.

This is a compliment to the manager who has taken charge of three relegation candidates, now in his eighth top flight season; Stoke City, Crysta Palace and West Brom.

The 15 Premier League managers to have been around long enough to record 100 defeats are as follows:
