Pardew: We Have Great Momentum

17 April 2015

Alan Pardew has spoken about tomorrow's home game with West Bromwich Albion in his pre-match press conference earlier this morning.

The manager revealed that spirits are high within the squad with the Eagles having only lost once in the last five games in the Premier League. He also discussed the upcoming return of Tony Pulis to Selhurst Park, before looking towards the summer and briefly discussing Palace's transfer strategy for the pre-season period.

"We're in a terrific mood, in terms of our confidence," he said. "We have great momentum and we're at home, in front of the most passionate of crowds. It will be a game to look forward to."

Pardew also spoke highly of Pulis, who will make his first return to Selhurst Park since leaving the Eagles before the start of the current season.

"He achieved fantastic results last season here. I wouldn't be here, and a lot of these players wouldn't be here, if he hadn't done that. We have to be thankful to him for that. 

"He should also be thankful that we're in the position we're in and that the players and myself have got the team where it is because I think the reception tomorrow could have been very different if we were in the relegation zone."

The manager also discussed the media's valuation of Yannick Bolasie, claiming that they were some way short of the mark, and then discussed the Eagles' summer transfer strategy.
