Stoke City 3-0 Maccabi Tel Aviv
Goals from Shotton, Jerome and Jones saw Stoke wrap up three points within the first half hour. The game was marred though by the sending off of Jerome for his second yellow card and dissent to the referee (who was very poor it has to be said). He will need to learn quickly that Pulis does not like his players giving verbal abuse to refs and prefers us to play on.
Shotton was superb last night and has come on leaps and bounds as a player and Jerome was a handful for the Maccabi defence.
Funny to see their player Ziv red carded for kikcing his boot at the linesman – a comedy classic!
Next up Arsenal away…we need to start improving in games directly after a Europa League game and given Arsenal’s recent good run of form a draw will be a good result.
