SHOULD Tony Pulis take the Crystal Palace managerial vacancy, the current squad have been warned to expect a "culture shock" and that they'll need to be ready to work hard. The Advertiser spoke to a source close to the former Stoke City boss, and they believe Pulis will want respect at all levels from the Eagles if he's to take on the job. "His best credentials as a manager is his honesty - he is a very honest and forthright guy," our source said. "It would be a case of you do it his way or you don't. I would think the Palace players would get a culture shock if he takes over because he will work them hard. "He works hard himself and he expects players to work hard. "If Tony undertakes a job, he certainly does and will give it 100 per cent." However, it isn't just the players who will need to work under him – the board of directors need to be onside with him too. "He's very much in demand, but that's because he's a very, very good manager," added our source. "He has got to work with the right people. I think he follow's Sir Alex Ferguson's mantra of picking a chairman rather than a club. "He has got to get on well with the chairman of a club. If there is any doubt then that's it."Follow us on Twitter @AdvertiserSport
