Stoke City: Pulis laughs off chairman's vote of confidence
TONY Pulis has laughed off talk of him receiving the dreaded vote of confidence from chairman Peter Coates this week.
Pulis admits recent results have not been good enough and he wants a change of form at Newcastle on Sunday.
But he shrugged off suggestions he might need a vote of confidence from his chairman.
"He's taking me out to dinner tonight," Pulis revealed.

"I'm expecting him to buy the dinner, so I won't argue with whatever he says!"
Tonight's dinner date will reassure those fans worried there might have been a strain in their relationship following recent results and performances.
On a more serious note, Pulis added: "The last six or seven years, since they (the Coates family) took over, it's been an upward curve.
"I'm very, very proud of what this club has achieved, but we play in the toughest league in the world and so you get good runs and you get bad runs.
"You just hope everybody sticks together."
