Tony Scholes: I know how tough it is to face Pulis sides

By Paul Scholes

Tony Pulis has his first game as West Bromwich Albion manager tomorrow against Hull City and I am sure his new players will know exactly what is expected of them.

Pulis will bring organisation and mental toughness to the team. Beyond that there is nothing fancy about it. His way is sound tactics and good motivation for the players.

We always knew we were in a game against Pulis' Stoke when I played for United, but we always believed we would beat them.

e I WAS glad to see David Moyes getting a great result with Real Sociedad against Barcelona on Sunday.

If ever there was a time to beat Barça it was with them resting so many big players.

Nonetheless, I saw a bit of the old Everton steel in that performance. They were good at home under him and Sociedad showed signs of being able to do the same.
