The National Pulisball Association has announced that the Crystal Palace Eagles’ Selhurst Park arena will host bi-weekly Pulisball games in 2014.
If Pulisball fans in Stoke thought they had it good between 2006 and 2013, then it’s going to get even better with legendary coach Tony Pulis coming over once again as part of his agreement to lead the Eagles into an already scheduled series of match-ups.
It’s a move that follows swiftly on from Ian Holloway’s decision to be sacked yesterday, a move that assumed inevitability when the Eagles succumbed to a flurry of stupefyingly spectacular Fulham goals on Monday night.
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Al, a Pulisball fan from Tuscon, Arizona, could scarcely contain his excitement at the prospect of “catching some Pu-ball” while he was in Croydon on an architecture trip.
He said: “That’s totally rad.
“I f***in’ love Pu-ball, dude. It’s gonna be totally awesome seeing the players up close, they’re f***in’ huge.
“I’m not sh*ttin’ you, man – some of them can throw a football further than you or I could kick it.
“It’s f***ed up.”
Speaking exclusively to someone else, Lee, a Crystal Palace fan from Bromley, said he was disappointed to be seeing actual football taken off the agenda at his local soccer arena.
He said: “I’m disappointed to be seeing actual football taken off the agenda at my local football club.
“I’ve quite enjoyed some of it at times, albeit many times more of it left me feeling exasperated and betrayed.
“What I want to know is why they call it Pulisball. They’re not even playing with a Tony Pulis-shaped ball.
“Am I missing something?”
