Because it doesn’t work in this era and we don’t have any actual wingers for a start. The only thing we have that would make a 442 possible is Burger and Pearson in the cage. Every other component of TP’s successful 442 is missing.
433 doesn’t work for us either mate Thinking about it no other system does

So TP football was boring at times but very direct and always in a game it was definitely a case of £be careful what you wish for" and look what we have since apart from a brief courtship with a few prima donnas until the wheels came off and no backbone to get us out of trouble - because some dickhead had had got rid of the spine including Huth, Whelan, Walters etc
FFS . Tony Pulis hasn’t managed in years, his football was shit to watch, he isn’t, never was the saviour, we need forward thinking, young dynamic people in the club, that’s why we are struggling so much. MODERNISE STOKE
I had some of my best Stoke memories watching his ‘shit’ football
You know what so did I, and I’m sorry if Tony read my comments and thought it was a criticism. I’m just sick and tired of people suggesting he’s the answer now because he isn’t. If SS is standing up to pre Madonna footballers then good on him, it’s what Pulis would do too. We can’t change the players now so let’s hope SS can manage the situation we are in. That’s his job and why he gets paid so well.
