Pulis offers no apologies for Stoke style

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis offers no apologises for the style of football they play.

"If you're saying we're going to play like Manchester United, then we're going to have to buy the players United have got," he said. "What you've got to do is play to your strengths and the players you can afford and the players you can work with.

"We've got a certain style. I don't think we're a kick-and-run big team, I think we play football. We don't play across, backwards and square, we play through teams, and if you go and watch Aston Villa, they do exactly the same."
