Transfer deadline day summer 2017 has been busy at Stoke with Ryan Shawcross signing a new four year contract. He’s been with the club ten years and a very pleased we are keeping him on for a further four years.

Meanwhile, fellow defender Philipp Wollscheid has had the remaining year of his contract cancelled by mutual consent allowing him to join FC Metz.

Bojan has joined Alaves on a season long loan, despite Mark Hughes praising him and welcoming him back earlier this summer after his last season long loan! He has never been at his best since his long lay off due to an injury.

Imbula has joined Toulouse on a season long loan and would be surprised if he ever dons a Stoke shirt again.

Berahino drugs claim

Saido Berahino claims a spiked drink on a night our led to his recent drugs ban. He certainly didn’t enjoy his past couple of years at West Brom. Hopefully he will get on the score sheet this weekend away at Leicester.

Shaqiri look set to sit out the weekend again after picking up another knock whilst playing for Switzerland in the week. He could be another possible summer departure along with the likes of Bojan, Wolschied and Joselu.

One summer incoming transfer could be a season long loan of Chelsea starlet Ruben Loftus-Cheek. The Sentinel reported this in January and now the ‘Daily Mail’ have picked up on a possible summer move.

Bojan has joined German club Mainz on loan for the rest of the season. Good luck to him and he may be back at Stoke next season, although not sure he features much in Mark Hughes’ plans.

Injury wise Stephen Ireland, Jack Butland and Geoff Cameron are all due back by the end of February, whilst Jon Walters has no return date as yet from his knee injury/surgery.

Berahino signs and two youngsters out on loan

Stoke City finally signed Saido Berahino from West Brom on a five and half year deal for at least £12m, rising to possibly £15m with add ons/clauses. Hopefully he can rediscover his goal scoring form of the 2014-15 season. His signing could see Bojan leave this week with Middlesboro the most likely destination still.

Two youngsters have gone on loan for the rest of the season…Ollie Shenton has joined Wrexham and Ryan Sweeney has gone to Bristol Rovers. Shenton was tipped to break into first team action after a couple of subs appearances in the 2014-15 season. This is the first loan period for Shenton which will hopefully develop his potential further. Sweeney joined us in the summer from AFC Wimbledon after impressing greatly during his time there.

Bojan, Crouch and Walters

Bojan looks to be the centre of a bid from Middlesboro, although Mark Hughes in his press conference today said Bojan was going nowhere, although he is injured and misses tomorrow’s game at Sunderland.

Peter Crouch has signed a one year extension to his current contract which keeps him at the club until 2018.

Jonathan Walters has had knee surgery and is likely to be out for a few weeks.

Only one incoming transfer has gained any traction, the continued pursuit of West Brom’s Saido Berahnio. Spurs are reportedly interested again with Pulis and West Brom keener to cash in now as Berahino’s contract expires this summer.

Muniesa off?

After an FA Cup performance to forget the transfer rumour mill is in full swing with Real Betis supposedly interested in signing Marc Muniesa, who said last month he wants away to guarantee first team football.

Bojan is after a move and after Saturday’s first half performance he won’t have impressed any potential suitors!

One player on the move is goalkeeper Jakob Haugarrad who has joined Championship side Wigan on loan for the rest of the season. With the signing of Grant permanently and Butland due back from injury hopefully next moth he’s be fourth in pecking order of goalies.

Geoff Cameron is due back from injury next week which should help us out in the midfield area.

Will it be Hughes? Or will it be Pulis?

Posted in Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , , on September 19, 2016 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

The fixture computer certainly knows how to pick them as only six games into the new season and Stoke’s home game against West Brom this weekend is a real six pointer and it could see possibly both managers sacked. Mark Hughes is now the bookeis favorite to be the first Premiership manager to be sacked, taking over from previous favourite…West Brom’s Tony Pulis.

Bojan asks for the players to share the pain of defeat with Hughes and get believing in themselves again. It does appear that Hughes may have lost the dressing room as the old guard – the remaining Pulis era players- have yet to speak out about the current bad form and play, most notably the captain Ryan Shawcross, who should be leading the rallying calls for players and fans alike.

Something needs to change and quickly with -11 goal difference after only five games and in three of those games we have shipped four goals. Hughes Out is the cry on the Oatcake messageboard and I will give Hughes one more chance as we must win at home against West Brom. Hull at home in the League Cup before that and a chance to try some younger/fringe players with a bit more fire and steel in their play? Who to replace Hughes if he goes? Bournemouth’s Eddie Howe could do a good job, anyone but Steve McClaren 🙂
