West Ham boss Allardyce full of praise for Stoke's Pulis
Allardyce commended Pulis on his achievement of keeping Stoke in the Premier League with limited resources, something he has done at clubs for more than a decade.
"We have the same philosophy in terms of we both want to defend well and make sure our team is organised and understand what's needed to be done in terms of game-plan," he said.
"We both also have to maximise our resources to make sure that the club is successful. When you look at what Tony has done, Stoke fill their ground every week and have been doing so for years now."
