Despite his years of experience in the lower leagues, Pulis is a relative novice in the top flight as he approaches the end of his second season.
However, his approach has not altered.
He told the Stoke Sentinel: "I haven't changed my principles from when I was younger, you are just working with better players these days.
"I still expect the same effort and commitment. The one thing you can guarantee if you play for me is that you have to give everything.
"At every club I have been at, I think the supporters have appreciated players who had a go."
