AHEAD of Tony Pulis' expected unveiling as Crystal Palace manager, one Eagles fan is preparing for a cliché-filled welcome. Paul Field has pulled together a bingo card for the former Stoke manager's press conference, featuring a light-hearted series of phrases that we may expect to hear at the presentation of the new boss. Slots on the bingo card include "Preferred candidate", a poke at Palace's long-running multi-target saga to replace Ian Holloway, and "Long ball", picking up on Pulis' playing style at Stoke. "No, we had no contact with…" and "Big, big club" also feature among the press conference clichés. Mr Field, 43, said: "The jury's out on Pulis' appointment. How much did he WANT the job is the first question that should be asked?" With Pulis expected to be revealed as the new Eagles boss today, Palace fans can play along with 'Tony Pulis Press-Con Bingo' with the image above.
