Stoke City boss Tony Pulis insists he won't walk away.

There was talk on Twitter after defeat to Aston Villa that he'd resigned.

But Pulis says: "Certain supporters want to criticise you and you have to be strong enough to handle that.

"But spin it round and there will be other fans who are happy with what we've done.

"They won't mind if, after seven years, we've had a dip.

"If you put everything we have achieved over the last seven years in front of them when I took over - even the ones criticising us now - they would have laughed and said 'You're dreaming!'"
