Wilson heads to Bournemouth

Marc Wilson has left the club to sign for Premier League rivals Bournemouth today for an undisclosed fee. With injury and falling down the pecking order he hardly featured last season. His recent Twitter outbursts won’t have helped either.

Hopefully we will sign a centre back before deadline day. No movement on a striker yet.

Youngsters George Waring and Choulay have joined League One side Shrewsbury Town on loan until January.

The under 23’s side started their season in the Premier League 2 with a 3-0 defeat to West Ham. New signing Ryan Sweeney scored an own goal.

Odemwingie to West Ham?

After having an unsuccessful trial at Hull City, scuppered by manager Steve Bruce quitting, Peter Odenwingie is possibly having a trial with West Ham with a view to a permanent move.

Stoke lost 1-0 to Hamburg in our final pre-season friendly, whilst the under-23 squad beat Rhyl 6-0 including a hat trick from Jon Walters. Walters played alongside Marc Wilson as the under-23 squad are allowed to field three players over 23 years old. Wilson could be on his way out of the club, especially after recent comments on Twitter over the weekend questioning Stoke’s defensive training.

Wilson injury and late bid for Berahino?

More injury woes for us with Marc Wilson out for three months, meaning we are running short of centre backs with Shawcross (due back in March) and the versatile Cameron both injured. Cameron could be back for the weekend though. Possibly a late loan bid for a centre back before deadline day tomorrow? Tottenham’s Federico Fazio possibly? That’s what the Sentinel think, although he could be on the way back to Spain.

As deadline day draws near we are of course being linked with lots of players, one of which is West Brom’s outcast Saido Berahino. Newcastle have had a bid of £21m rejected already and Sky say we are interested possibly in advanced talks, not so says the Sentinel.

Odemwingie could be on his way to a loan move with Marseille, although he was linked with Sunderland earlier in the week.

Moses out for six weeks

Serious injury blow with Victor Moses out injured for six weeks. He will miss the key festive season games and leaves Arnie as our only real pace player.

Better news is that Marc Wilson should be back to face Liverpool, although Huth is still injured.

Hull City 1-1 Stoke City

Dire…that in a word sums up Stoke’s performance today. Wilson needs dropping pronto; need a little more grit to match the fancy play and Diouf I really hope he starts to show what made him so good at Hanover! Fair play to ten man Hull who battled like the Stoke of old and a late Shawcross equaliser meant we got our first point and goal of the new season.

Will we add another centre back ahead of next Monday’s transfer deadline? Interestingly one rumour over Pulis leaving Crystal Palace was that he wanted a triple Stoke swoop on Crouch, Walter and Wilson which Palace wouldn’t authorise. On Wilson’s current form many Stoke fans would happily drive him down to south London…

Crystal Pulis 1-0 Stoke City

We do look poor again with Wilson again managing to fluff up defensively to allow Crystal Palace to win. With former manager Tony Pulis in charge there looked to be only one result and fittingly a binary one at that.

We do look very poor in places and lacking that fight that a typical Pulis team has. I reckon four points maximum from our next six games which include Man City, Man Utd & Chelsea… We are in a relegation battle and we need players to show some pride and fight, not sure though many of them do at present.

N’zoni still wants away…

The Telegraph reports that N’zoni still wants to leave the club despite a new manager being in charge. It appears to be over a revised contract based on reaching a set amount of appearances last season. One of our few shining lights last season but it seems he is set on leaving.

More rumours…Jon Walters to Cardiff for £4m. Not sure where Walters would fit in now? Hughes has stated he wants to keep the squad intact as much as possible.

Various players now saying how they are looking forward to playing under Hughes, including Marc Wilson in a recent interview with Sky Sports.
