Palace boss Pulis pleased with first strategy meeting

Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis has set out his plans to club co-owner Steve Parish in the past week.

Pulis feels Palace have great opportunity this summer to establish themselves as a Premier League club.

"I had a smashing meeting with Steve on Thursday. We'll get the game out of the way on Sunday and Steve will have spoken to the other directors about my thoughts about moving the club on, and we will all be having dinner again next week when no doubt those discussions will go on further.

"You can't stop speculation and people saying he's going to do this or that. The two most important people at a club are the chairman and the manager. My relationship with Steve has grown stronger and stronger the longer I have been at the club."

Pulis guided his former club Stoke into the top flight and turned them into Premier League mainstays over the next five years, and clearly he wants to achieve the same with Palace.

"There's so much work to be done but Steve recognises that," he added. "Are we at loggerheads? No we aren't, he understands what's needed."
