Pulis: It's all about the results

Cape Town - West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis believes pressure only builds on a team due to a lack of results, not the money spent on new players during the off-season.

The Baggies spent £40m on six new players before the start of the new season, and chairman John Williams described the transfer window as a success.

However, Pulis has struggled to find wins recently, going eight games in all competitions without tasting victory, and admits the lack of wins is adding pressure.

"I don’t think it’s spending money (that adds pressure),” he said, according to the Express & Star.

"You have to spend money. You have to try and improve.

"It’s just about getting the right players in and getting the right balance within the group and the team.

"Results are everything. It’s a results-based industry and irrespective of what you spend or don’t spend people take a view on the results you’re getting."
