Stoke fans had a surprising pop at boss Pulis at Wigan yesterday, even though the Potters came back twice for another valuable Premier League point.
A section of Stoke's travelling army of supporters chanted "You don't know what you're doing" after Pulis took off new signing Michael Kightly.
But Pulis, whose side have graced the top-flight for five seasons now and who played in the Europa Cup last season, took it all on the chin.
He said: "I'm big, ugly and strong enough to take it. Kightly looked a bit tired and we had to bring him off near the end. But people have their opinions and they pay good money to come and watch us. It's fair pressure."
