Yes that’s right we’ve signed a player before the end of May! Sunderland right back Phil Bardsley today signed a three year contract after leaving Sunderland after six and half years. He officially joins the club on July 1st.

Meanwhile striker Mama Diouf has left Hanover and has also been at Stoke today to discuss terms. Mark Hughes has tried to sign him in January. No further news but be good if Stoke get in quick and sign him on pre-contract terms.

Michael Kightly is still wanted by Burnley although the two clubs have yet to agree a fee.

Brek Shea seems to be staying at Stoke for now although a move back to the US could still happen over the summer.

Man Utd 4-2 Stoke City

Posted in Football, Stoke City, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , on October 21, 2012 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Despite taking an early lead with a Wayne Rooney own goal Man Utd won through. Michael Kightly scored for us after never giving up on his run at the Man Utd defence. Good to see us attack away from home and Wilson Palacios even got a run out late on!

Next up Sunderland in a welcome home game for once…

Reading 1-1 Stoke City

Posted in Football, Stoke City, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , on August 18, 2012 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Not a great game by all accounts but debutant Michael Kightly scored before a late Reading penalty after Dean Whitehead was sent off for his second bookable offence. Good away point and at least we have scored this season! Otherwise not many positives from this game…

Michael Owen could join us soon based on Tweets between Owen and Gary Linekar. Need something else up front as Big Mama is sadly not going to feature after his series of injuries and Kenwyne Jones I am sure will be off before deadline day. Matthew Upson maybe off as well as he didn’t travel with the squad today.

Lewis Moult has signed for Northampton and Tom Soares looks set to sign a one moth deal with Portsmouth.

Michael Kightly signs

Michael Kightly has now signed for us – full details here. Good signing, who along with Cameron and Ness have added good competition for places and a step up on Woodgate, Diao and Soares. Still need at least another striker as we have no Fuller and I can’t see Big Mama playing much.

Michael Owen next for us?

Cameron a Stokie and get well Huth

Geoff Cameron has had his work permit approved and can now play for us. A great signing and like fellow newboy Jamie Ness can play in a variety of positions. Michael Kightly is set for  medical today ahead of his move from Wolves. Good work Stoke in getting three players in before the season starts. There will be mroe comings and goins you can be sure of that, possibly even Polish trialist Sebastian Boenisch may be offered a contract?

Stoke drew 1-1 with Yeovil Town with Kenwyne Jones getting Stoke’s goal headed on by Boenisch.

Get well soon Robert Huth who has suspected meningitis.

Kightly next to sign? Owen next?

Stoke drew 1-1 in their final game against Kansas in the US with Pulis keen to go back to the USA next summer. Geoff Cameron is training with the squad and has his work permit appeal this Wednesday (8th August).

Stoke play at Torquay Utd tonight with Yeovil Townnext up.

Wolves Michael Kightly could be poised to sign as both cluibs have agreed a fee for him. If he signs he may feature in the Torquay game.

Michael Owen may be a Stoke player by the end of the week if some rumours are to be believed.

No news on any outgoings although the Sentinel today hints Matthew Etherington could be temoted back to West Ham, especially as now his best friend in football James Collins (a former Stoke target) has moved back to West Ham from Villa.

Stoke beat Orlando & Cameron’s permit hearing date

Stoke beat Orlando 1-0 with a goal from Jon Walters although Glen Whelan was sent off. Hopefully this will be rescinded otherwise he will be set to miss our new season opener at Reading.

Geoff Cameron’s work permit hearing is set for August 8th, hopefully we can get his permit sorted and he can join the squad back in the UK.

Seems we have had a big for Wolves Michael Kightly rejected and Michael Owen to Stoke rumours won’t go away!

Elsewhere Andy Carroll looks set to join West Ham on loan as Defoe swaps Spurs for QPR, who made a cracking signing in Blackburn’s Junior Holliet.
