The Baggies head coach has warned that he doesn't want standards to slip.
Indeed, Pulis feels West Brom - and any other team - owe the rest of the sides in the Premier League their best over 90 minutes during every game of the season.
And the Welshman told Sky Sports after his team's 2-1 defeat to Manchester City on Saturday evening:
"I think it's important that you put performances in whether you're safe or not. I won't have anything else apart from people having a go. We played some good stuff today and played through the pitch. We caused them problems."
Overall, then, how can West Brom fans feel about their season?
The Baggies currently sit in 13th place and have reached the 40-point mark Pulis values so highly.
West Brom are safe, can realistically finish in the top 10 and were able to produce a strong performance against Manchester City despite an unfortunate defeat.
The big question is where the Midlands club can go next season. Standing still may be good enough for many - but will the West Brom hierarchy push for more or prioritise stability and, first and foremost, safety?
