West Brom boss Tony Pulis: Fans can jeer - I won't change

West Brom boss Tony Pulis felt they played better against Bournemouth, despite thumping West Ham 4-2.

The Welshman, who was taking charge of his 999th game today after nearly 25 years of management, trusts his own methods.

"We had better chances at Bournemouth and played better as a team in terms of creating opportunities, but we never scored goals," he said, after watching Albion score four in the Premier League for the first time under his stewardship.

"And if you lose games then it gives a bad taste for the supporters. The supporters have the right to express their opinions. It's not changed me.

"We've worked the same this week as we have done last week.

"West Ham - we thought if we gave them the ball up to the halfway line, they would get very stretched and vacate areas that we would look to exploit.

"And we've done that well today as a team. We've really worked hard on that. It's all gone well.

"Chadders (Nacer Chadli) has got two goals, Salomon (Rondon) scores a really good goal which was important for us and James (McClean) has popped up as well with a toe-end which was pleasing."
