WE SAID, THEY SAID

We Said - Tony Pulis: “We are a couple of games from Wembley with the semi-finals staged there. If we can get through this challenge and get a favourable draw, who knows what might be ahead? It is the excitement of the cup and I know this club has a great history in the competition.”

They Said – Sam Allardyce: "Saturday is a big game for both teams, Tony has done well since he's joined and doing well with the FA Cup certainly has helped to lift the team."
