Bolasie has been in incredible form of late but those who criticised him in the past feel he still has his limitations as a player.
Crystal Palace fans won't care, though, so long as the 25-year-old keeps delivering for the Eagles.
So highly is he rated at the south London club that boss Alan Pardew even recently declared he is worth no less than £20 million, according to BBC Sport.
West Brom boss Pulis, who succeeded at Crystal Palace last season, no doubt rates Bolasie too, hence a shake of the hand of the Palace winger and plenty of smiles during a pleasant-looking reunion.
The reunion clash itself would have been far more enjoyable for Pulis, whose West Brom side won 2-0 at Selhurst Park. Crystal Palace, contrary to recent form, had little to show in response. The Eagles have still had a fantastic time under Pardew, though, especially Bolasie.
