Match of the week – Shrewsbury Town v Stoke City – Gary Rowett on his way?

Posted in Championship, FA Cup, Football, football transfers, Stoke City, Stoke City FC with tags , , , , , , , on January 3, 2019 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

The Mirror broke a story last night that Gary Rowett was facing the sack and either Sam Allardyce or David Moyes were being lined-up to replace him. It may seem strange to an outsider as Stoke are currently fourteenth in the Championship and still within reach of a play-off place, however the fans have made their voices heard at the past couple of games, including the dismal 2-0 defeat at home to Bristol City on New Year’s Day. The football played under Rowett is defensive first and flair players like Bojan don’t even get a look in and Moritz Bauer, who seems to have upset Rowett as he also doesn’t make the match day squad.

League One Shrewsbury Town away in the FA Cup third round is a tricky tie. Rowett will be in charge still it seems, however if he does play the youngsters and Bojan & Bauer and they win, he will have fans saying ‘told you so’ and upping the pressure to play them in league games. I am going for a 2-1 win for Stoke.

Charlie Adam has stated he’s be happy to move to Rangers, although whether Rangers would be happy to see him is another matter! He has also been linked with a move to Dundee.

Didcot Town add two new players

Didcot Town have added to last month’s loan signing of Oxford Utd striker Brandon Taverner, adding Greg Hackett from Ardley United, who has scored sixteen goals in sixteen games (Benik Afobe take note!!!), and winger John Dennis from Reading City. All three will provide much needed cover and competition for places, plus hopefully a few goals between them!

Next up is Dunstable Town at home in the league this Saturday 3PM KO.

We signed him on a free transfer last season and he leaves the same way a year later. He was not part of Gary Rowett’s plans and good luck at PSG.

Also on the move before today’s transfer deadline was Geoff Cameron who joined Championship rivals QPR on a season long loan. He did well for us and could have been cover this season, although we have replaced him with Martina and Clucas, two versatile players in terms of where they play on the pitch.

Imbula off on loan again

GIANNELLI IMBULA has today joined Spanish side Rayo Vallecano on a season-long loan. He still has three years of his contract left at Stoke.

Imbula has made 28 appearances since joining in January 2015.

Along with Wimmer we spent over £40m for two players who have been flops and amongst our worst signings.

BADOU NDIAYE has re-joined Galatasaray on loan from Stoke City for the remainder of the 2018/19 season.

He joined Stoke in January and has made 14 league appearances. He has made no secret of wanting a move once we were relegated and he’s no loss, as we only want players who want to help the club get promoted.

Stoke City have signed Ryan Woods from Brentford, initially on a loan with a view to a permanent move in January. He becomes the ninth signing of the summer and unless we ship a few payers out this week, the last before deadline day on Friday.

Stoke win their first league game this season with a two nil home win over Hull City. New boy James McClean got the first goal, with Diouf claiming the second although it was given as an own goal.

STOKE CITY have completed the season-long loan signing of defender Cuco Martina from Everton, subject to FA and EFL clearance. He joins his Everton team mate Ashley Williams who is also on a season long loan. Martina can play anywhere across the back four and can hopefully be named in the squad to face Preston tomorrow at 5:30pm
