Palace and West Brom fans react on Twitter to Pulis's embarrassing tactics

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

Crystal Palace's 2-0 win over West Brom brought back memories of the Welshman's time at Selhurst Park.

Football changes quickly and, with every Tony Pulis return to Crystal Palace, things seem to get worse for West Brom and the appreciation for what the Welshman did at Selhurst Park seems to diminish.

Indeed, Crystal Palace fans will no doubt be eternally grateful to Pulis for dragging them out of dire straits and keeping them in the Premier League. But the Eagles also remember the type of football that was played in south London.

And every West Brom visit offers up a fresh reminder. On Saturday afternoon, Alan Pardew had Palace attacking and, ultimately, beating the Baggies 2-0. To say Pulis went for a different approach would be an understatement.

So negative were West Brom - who one fan admitted are still compensating for actually going for it against Manchester City and playing two up top - that both sets of fans slammed their 'embarrassing' tactics on Twitter after the game.

Crystal Palace fans remember them well, while Baggies supporters don't need to venture too far back... West Brom's tactics have rarely been this negative. Here's what was said on Twitter in reaction to the game:
