Tony Pulis Newcastle Destroyed Us Down Our Left

7 years ago

The Tony Pulis Newcastle take was that the visiting team took his left hand side apart early doors.

The Palace manager admitted that Newcastle caused all kinds of problems in the opening 20-25 minutes down their left (Newcastle’s right) and indeed put in almost a cross a minute from our right side in that opening period.

“The one thing we have been since I have been at this football club is looking pretty disciplined and solid but we gifted them two really really poor goals. After that you are chasing the game against a team that will, I think, finish top eight.

“If you look at the game in the first half they’ve had so much play down the right and caused us so many problems.

“We’ve got to do well at home, we can’t be gifting teams goals.

“They got around 15 crosses from our left side in that first twenty to twenty five minutes.

“We will have good runs and bad runs – it is about just dusting yourself down.”

A tribute to the form of Debuchy in particular today who was outstanding.
