  • DO WE HAVE A POTENTIAL CRISIS?
    on Mar 4, 2013
    STOKE CITY FC  0  WEST HAM UNITED  1This match was a virtual rerun of last week's effort at Fulham. Again two mediocre teams on show,again a disjointed performance from the Potters,again a winning goal conceded seconds before halftime.
  • BEWARE....MASTERCRAFTSMAN AT WORK
    on Feb 24, 2013
    FULHAM 1 STOKE CITY FC 0Stoke approached this game with a degree of caution,but looked good for at least a point against a lacklustre Fulham side,until 8 seconds before half time. Inside our penalty box Robert Huth's defensive header out lacked di...
  • CAMERON JEROME HITS THE JACKPOT...AGAIN!
    on Feb 10, 2013
    STOKE CITY FC 2 READING 1Last week's encounter with Arsenal suggested that,if not exactly returning to form,at least we were getting back to doing those things that we do well. I had the same feeling yesterday. Fair enough Reading were content to...
  • PRIDE INTACT
    on Feb 4, 2013
    ARSENAL  1  STOKE CITY  0Arsenal were made to look distinctly ordinary on Saturday,made to work very hard for their win.The stubborness,resilience, and above all organisation had returned to the defensive side of our game.True we we we...
  • CROSSROADS FOR THE POTTERS?
    on Feb 2, 2013
     STOKE CITY FC 2 WIGAN ATHLETIC 2I have deliberately left writing this to give time to think – and the transfer deadline to pass - before commenting on what I saw at The Brit on Tuesday night.I have to confess to serious disappointment in...
  • ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE DAYS
    on Jan 20, 2013
    SWANSEA CITY  3  STOKE CITY FC  1Was it the weather? Was it something missing from the porridge? Is something happening behind the scenes? Whatever it was Stoke were not themselves yesterday.The first half  saw a largely unremarka...
  • WE'VE ALL HAD ONE OF THOSE DAYS.....THIS ONE WAS PREMIER LEAGUE EPIC.
    on Jan 13, 2013
    STOKE CITY FC  0 CHELSEA 4Our fine unbeaten run at home disappeared in some style . Almost twelve months since our last league defeat at home, to Sunderland, on that miserable afternoon last February. Another cold one today at The Brit, and t...
  • NO BONUS FROM THIS GAME
    on Jan 2, 2013
    MANCHESTER CITY  3  STOKE CITY FC  0After Saturday's fixture against Southampton Tony Pulis described this match as a ' bonus game'.I took that to mean that he was not expecting to come away from The Etihad with anything, but if we did...
  • JUST LIKE THE OTHERS ??
    on Dec 30, 2012
    STOKE CITY FC  3  SOUTHAMPTON  3Now we've been looking on from a distance at the 'cricket' scores being notched up in other Premiership games this season,and thinking...not us,its not how we do things at Stoke City. Miserly in defence,...
  • WHAT A MATCH.......NOBODY SLEPT THROUGH THIS ONE.
    on Dec 27, 2012
    STOKE CITY FC 3 LIVERPOOL 1Well lazy sections of the media have us down as one dimensional ,and by some illogical extension boring. It must be all the 0-0 draws. Reporters have become accustomed to dozing off. Have to concentrate at all the footb...
  • SOLID STUBBORN STOKE
    on Dec 23, 2012
    TOTTENHAM HOTSPURS 0 STOKE CITY FC 0Another good and hard earned point for The Mighty Potters,against a team who could have gone to third in the table with a win. The first half was comfortable with our prime chance falling to the busy Kenwyne Jo...
  • TIME FLEW BY....AND GREATEST RESPECT TO MANAGER MOYES
    on Dec 17, 2012
    STOKE CITY FC  1  EVERTON  1This was a most enjoyable match.It must have been,because the time just flew by.Two well matched sides,believe it or believe it not! The football  served up was first rate,and the result a fair reflecti...
  • THOUGHT HE WAS HOWARD WEBB,BUT HE WASN'T HALF AS GOOD.
    on Dec 10, 2012
    ASTON VILLA  0  STOKE CITY FC  0Another one of those " not much to be seen here,move along please" matches.Villa had the bulk of the play,made a good few chances,but found the Stoke defence,as usual, in stubborn mood.Stoke came into th...
  • BAGGIES CHARITY SHOP OPEN FOR BUSINESS
    on Dec 3, 2012
    WEST BROMWICH ALBION 0 STOKE CITY FC 1I was not too confident as we approached this fixture.The Baggies have been going well this season,particularly at home. Scoring frequently too!Oh ye of little faith.I should have known better,after all this i...

  • CHARLIE ADAM DOES IT AGAIN !!!
    on Nov 25, 2012
    STOKE CITY FC 1 FULHAM 0Even if only for 24hours Stoke moved up to a respectable mid table 11th place in the Premiership,with 16 points from 13 games,and 0 goal difference. For the second home game running Charlie Adam notched the crucial goal,bri...
  • SAM WOKE WEST HAM FROM THEIR SLUMBER
    on Nov 21, 2012
    WEST HAM UNITED 1 STOKE CITY FC 1Very similar in some ways to the Man U game. Stoke got off to a particularly bright start,quietening the home crowd,unsettling the high flying home team.The highlight of the first half,dominated by Stoke,was Walter...
  • STOKIE LOGIC
    on Nov 11, 2012
    STOKE CITY FC 1 QUEENS PARK RANGERS 0Stoke had to work really hard for this win,and the three points. From a team confidence point of view the result was vital. Watching ALL the players on the pitch there was plenty of tension about. Our visitors...
  • CLUELESS REFS, LUCKLESS POTTERS,TOOTHLESS TIGERS.....ANY OF THESE, OR SOMETHING ELSE?
    on Nov 4, 2012
    NORWICH CITY 1 STOKE CITY 0Looks to me like we are suffering a combination of these factors,PLUS tactics and overall match strategy.Let's turn the whole thing on its head.No Stokie watching would be in any doubt that in the last quarter of this ma...
