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 6-1 Liverpool

What a fantastic result and end to the current season 🙂

The goalscorers were Mama Diouf (2), Jon Walters, Charlie Adam, Peter Crouch and Steven N’Zonzi.

Some interesting records broken today:

Steven Gerrard has never lost a Premier League game by more than four goals.

Stoke are the first team to score five goals vs Liverpool in a league game since Coventry in December 1992.

This is Liverpool’s heaviest defeat since the 1950’s.

Stoke last scored more than five goals in a league game back in 1982.

Peter Crouch, with his goal today, became the leading all time scorer from headers in the Premier League.

Stoke’s highest ever win in the Premiership.

* Stoke City will play Brentford in a pre-season friendly on Saturday July 25th.
