Chelsea 1-0 Stoke City

An 85th minute winner gave Chelsea the three points but we played well and  had some decent chances. A more attacking style as well with Michael Owen again coming on as a sub late on and another impressive showing from new boys Geoff Cameron and Stephen N’Zonzi. Red card tackle by David Luiz who was lucky to only get a red and Oscar tried out for the diving medals at Rio 2016 – good to see him booked though. Swansea up next at home…

Andy Wilkinson will serve a three match ban for his elbow incident; Danny Higginbotham has joined Ipswich Town on a month’s loan; Ricardo Fuller scored again for Charlton.

  1. I used to like Stoke – I really did. There was something about the ethos that led the rest of us to admire the style and the endeavour of the team. They would often be the neutral’s choice.

    However, you might like your manager, because he keeps you in the Premier League comfortably, but he is making you one of the most disliked teams in the league.

    Don’t get me wrong – the style is effective, and there’s nothing wrong with it, but don’t pretend that it’s pretty. Don’t spout nonsense about diving when you have Etherington in your team. If you live by the sword………

    Pulis is second only to the Manchester United manager in hypocrisy, and fast coming up alongside him in the nonsense stakes. Free-kicks and throw-ins are an effective tactic, but don’t try and tell us that you play good football. It doesn’t wash.

    You’ll be relegated in a year or two and thankfully Pulis wil be out on his ear. It’ll probably be scant consolation, but the rest of us will like you again.
