Tymon signs for Stoke :)

Eighteen year old left back Josh Tymon has signed from Hull City on a five year deal. The fee will go to a tribunal due to his age. Good signing of a highly rated youngster and in an area we don’t have great cover for.

Jon Walters is all but set to join Burnley in a deal of around £3m. He has been a great player for us and hopefully Mark Hughes has some sort of replacement lined-up. Mind you, given the fanfare Bojan has been given at coming back after his loan last season maybe we are looking at him as our new SJW?

Man City’s Fabian Delph could still be joining us on a loan, although hopefully he won’t seek advice from Wildred Bony after his disastrous loan with us last season!

The squad travel to Switzerland this weekend for the start of their pre-season friendlies and Philipp Wollscheid will be in the squad, despite spending most of last season away on loan. No news on Joselu who was linked to Malaga and unless he engineers a move, looks set to stay with the club for now.

Stoke City 2-0 Man Utd & Pieters signs

Posted in Football, football transfers, Stoke City, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , , , on December 26, 2015 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

What a great result today against a Man Utd side who really are struggling under the rigid tactics of their manager. Bojan opened the scoring from an assist from Glen Johnson, with Marko Arnautovic getting the second. Everton away next which will be a good game I am sure.

Erik Pieters has signed a contract extension until 2020. He has become a firm fan favorite and all we need now is Marko Arnautovic to sign a new contract. I am sure we can persuade him to stay on for another couple of seasons.

January transfer window could see a few fringe players leave like Steve Sidwell, Peter Crouch who must be hankering after first team football, Stephen Ireland (what has happened with him?) and possibly , although any move for him would be hampered by his recent injury.

Interesting company Art of Football who create illustrations that try to capture those magical moments in football. They have just made their first Stoke design of the little genius Bojan. They have other football clubs, plus rugby and more. Luckily no rubbish like P*** V*** are covered 😉

Adam, Moses and Whitehead

Charlie Adam has signed a new extended contract with the club until 2017, with an option of a further year. Great news as his form since becoming a regular in the starting XI following Bojan’s injury was immense. Speaking of Bojan he is aiming to be back in contention for the opening game of the season against Liverpool.

One player who looks like won’t be signing is Victor Moses if this Guardian news piece is to be believed. Seems he is not keen to be any part of a deal to take Begovic to Chelsea. No formal offers have been made for Begovic yet.

Andy Wilkinson is on a week-by-week contract with the club until he finds himself a new club after being released this summer.

Ex-Stoke player Dean Whitehead has moved clubs again signing for Huddersfield Town.

Rochdale 1-4 Stoke City FA Cup 4th Round

Posted in FA Cup, Stoke City, Stoke City FC with tags , , , , , , , , on January 26, 2015 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Good away win after an early wonder goal by Bojan, easily the most talented Stoke player I have seen in my lifetime as a Stoke supporter. Rumours of Liverpool interested in him, they can look elsewhere, Emile Heskey would be good for them 😉

The other goals came from Stephen Ireland, Victor Moses and Jon Walters. Next round is Blackburn away, a tough game and hopefully televised again.

Andy Wilkinson has returned from his loan spell at Millwall and Jamie Ness is back on loan at Crewe for the rest of the season.

Stoke City 3-2 Arsenal and Wrexham in the FA Cup

Posted in Football, Stoke City, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , , , on December 8, 2014 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Great win for us over Arsenal, a team who never seem to like playing at the Britannia 🙂 Goals from Peter Crouch, Bojan and Jon Walters secured three points and we even had a second Bojan goal disallowed. Next up Crystal Palace away, that will be a tough game, although Aston Villa recently beat them 3-1 at Selhurst Park. Good to see Huth come on at the end of the game too.

The FA Cup third round draw has been made today and we have non-league Wrexham at home. Good draw for them and not too far to travel. Really hope we get past this potential banana skin…

Stoke City 1-2 Burnley

Posted in Football, Stoke City, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , , on November 24, 2014 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

To quote a Stoke fan of the Oatckake no long er Fortress Britannia, now it’s more Sandcastle Britannia. Losing at home to bottom club Burnley will hopefully act as a defensive wake-up call as we have often been woeful at the back with players switching off at key moments. Of the current bottom five teams, we have played all five and picked up just two points, losing at home to three of them – Villa, Leicester and now Burnley. Next up Liverpool away…

Still ever the optimist Bojan played well again and Walters is now our top scoring Premier League player of all time with 29 goals.
