Tony Pulis unhappy with criticism

New Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis has admitted he is “very annoyed” by the negative reputation he has gained in the game, despite his success in stabilising Stoke City in the Premier League.

Daly: Pulis' task at Palace

Pulis has long been chastised for his use of direct tactics and, as a result, there was disappointment among some sections of the Palace support at the news of his appointment.

However, at his first news conference since being confirmed as Ian Holloway’s successor, Pulis has insisted he deserves more credit for his achievements in the game.

“People talk about me being a firefighter, but I have also been very successful,” Pulis said. “It annoys me that in this country you get pigeonholed for certain things.

“Everyone talks about not being relegated, but as a manager I have got a few promotions. What people don’t talk about is I’ve been promoted out of every division and been to the final of an FA Cup. My record is there for everyone to see.”

Pulis stressed he had no doubts about taking over at Palace, despite the club currently sitting at the foot of the Premier League.

“It was important that everything was right,” he said. “We had three meetings together and thought it was right that [co-chairman] Steve [Parish] spoke to other people. And for myself personally I am still very ambitious. I like climbing hills and this is going to be a tough job but one that I’ll relish.

“It’s a club in the Premiership, it’s a great club. It’s a smashing club with great history. It’s going to be a tough job and I have not come in with any illusions, but looking at what has happened in the few years at the football club the chairman needs to be applauded. How far they have come to be in the Premier League in a few years is remarkable.

“I’ve spoken to Ian [Holloway] a few times and you have to give managers who have taken on the club great credit. He said the club has great potential and you have to give them great credit.”

Pulis refused to be drawn on possible transfer targets in the January window, but he suggested there would be funds made available to bring the type of players he wants into his Palace squad.

“There’s an opportunity to wheel and deal in January,” he added. “I told the players we will be underdogs. People expect us to be relegated, but I know what it takes and hopefully I won’t put this football club in trouble.”

Meanwhile, Parish has hit back at suggestions that he took too long to appoint a replacement for Holloway, as he insisted he wanted to make the right decision and consider his options before recruiting Pulis.

“What is the right amount of time to get it right? If you're hiring a manager for two to three years you need to get it right,” he said.

"We weren't expecting Ian [Holloway] to go so we needed to look who was available and see who was right for the club. I didn't see a desperate need to get someone in and it all worked out quite well. I don't work to a timescale set by certain newspaper. I don't bring people into my club after half an hour.

“We have four points from our last two games which is a great platform for Tony. No one would have thought we could have got those last two results, but we have.”
