Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis will thrash out his future with the board this week.
Pulis, after their six-goal thriller against Liverpool, confirmed a meeting was planned.
He told Sky Sports: "We're having a chat on Wednesday or Thursday me and Steve and just have a night together where we can sit down and talk about everything.
"The club is a smashing club, it's got fantastic support and fantastic potential, but it's a way behind what it should be. But that was the same situation at Stoke.
"I had a magnificent chairman there in Peter Coates who backed me and allowed me to build the football club up for seven, eight years. That's what you want, the backing and let people do your job. You get paid to do your job, and I enjoy doing this job."
