Stoke City 2-1 Reading
Stoke took a two goal lead thanks to a Huth bullet header and another superb Cameron Jerome strike, although it was close as Reading are the comeback kings and a sloppy conceded goal nearly saw them snatch a point.
We have 33pts and not far from the magical 40pts safety barrier, although this season it could be lower around the 33-34pts mark. A weekend off now as we play Fulham away on Saturday 22nd Feb with a 12:45pm KO.
Brek Shea has his work permit and looks like a cross between a surfer and the Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins! He’s a big lad as well and once fully up to fitness should be a good signing based on his footballing career to date.
We still have one spare spot in our current 25 man squad in case Pulis can land another player on a free transfer. Not much out there though, although Salif Diao is still listed as a free agent. Can he play left back 😉
