Pulis Hits Back At AVB

By on August 17, 2011

Stoke boss Tony Pulis has hit back at Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas after he accused Stoke of going to far with their physical approach.

After Chelsea’s 0-0 draw at the Britannia Stadium AVB said:

“The amount of shoving and pushing was out of this world. Stoke pushed the boundaries of pushing and shoving.”

The former Gillingham boss has yet again come to the defence of his team’s aggressive approach. Pulis told Talksport:

“This big Stoke team was actually outmatched by Chelsea at the end.

“If you look at the players Chelsea had on the pitch at the end of the game, there weren’t too many under six foot – Jose Bosingwa and Ashley Cole were probably the only two.

“We do the best we can with what we have got. We are not enamoured with the wallet Chelsea have got.

“We haven’t got the great players Chelsea have got. But the players we do have are very honest and give it their best every game.”

    Dear me, how far behind the times are you? Why don’t you read what Pullis has said about the matter a couple of days ago? I suppose you’ll report on that next week sometime….

    Delete this article now. This is another complete fabrication. Pulis HIMSELF said the media had stretched and warped AVB’s comments. Can anyone be a journalist now? I mean seriously? I read several articles a day that are completely made up.
