TONY Pulis has hailed the Crystal Palace supporters and wants them to "turn the volume" up when West Ham United arrive at Selhurst Park on Tuesday night. Eagles fans filled out their allocation with ease at Norwich City in front of Pulis in the dugout. "I thought the Palace supporters were brilliant, and they have been all season – we'll need them," he said. "It's very important they pick the baton up which they have, you can't fault them one bit. "The times I've been at Selhurst Park, the crowd have been wonderful, and if we can turn the volume up a little bit for the West Ham game then that will help the players. "That's us giving them something to cheer about." And the new manager will be working hard to get to know the current group of players too. "When the manager changes and a different manager comes in, they might have different view from the previous one," said Pulis. "That's no disrespect to Ian (Holloway) or Dougie (Freedman) or anybody, we're all different. "But I've always felt that period at seven or eight weeks, or whatever it is, is always a time where you try and put things in place, knowing the team and knowing the group. "That's management for me, and people forget, they think we go off on holiday. Well I don't certainly go off on holiday, I'm trying to line things up."
