Maybe I’ll do it and maybe I won’t.“If Tony gets another job and wants me to go with him, maybe I will or maybe I won’t. Or maybe I won’t do anything.“I’ll see what comes up and see what I feel like doing.”Francis, who made his name as a player at QPR and later had spells at Loftus Road as manager and director of football, also defended Pulis following criticism of West Brom’s style of play during their time at The Hawthorns.Francis said: “You’ve got to get a balance. All managers have their own way of playing and what they think is successful.“If you’re not one of the top six teams that are able to buy the best players in the league then you’re competing at times with players and teams that are better than you then you have to find a way to get results.“Crystal Palace fans were delighted with Tony. But it’s about results – what fans don’t like is to be losing.”last_img
