Stoke drew with Man Utd today 1-1 with an early Ryan Shawcross goal and a disallowed Stoke penalty. Man Utd had more long balls than us yet their manager thinks we’re a long ball team! That’s seven points from nine over the festive season, a very good points haul. Next up non-league Wrexham at home in the third round of the FA Cup. Have to be careful as they are doing well this season and we have a so-so record against non-league/lower league sides. I am not going to even mention by name that north eastern non-league club who beat us in the 1970’s, a case where I can sadly say I was there…

Former manager Tony Pulis has joined West Brom as their new manager. Good luck to him and hands off Glen Whelan and Jon Walters!

Ryan Shotton has joined Derby County on a permanent deal after being on loan with them since the summer. A local player he made over 70 appearances for us and good luck to him. With the January transfer window now open we may see Brek Shea leave and possibly Andy Wilkinson join Millwall permanently.

Contracts wise rumour is Glen Whelan has been offered an improved contract and a new contract has been offered to Peter Odemwingie, who is currently out injured until June. No news on a new deal for Peter Crouch as yet.

Stoke City 3-0 Portsmouth (League Cup R2)

Posted in Football, Stoke City, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , , , , , on August 27, 2014 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Attendance 10,312

Walters (2), Crouch

Butland; Wilkinson, Shawcross (c), Huth, Muniesa; Cameron (Sidwell), Adam; Odemwingie (Shenton), Walters, Moses (Arnautovic); Crouch
No Bojan (ribs) or Bardsley (knee) who were both rested after failing late fitness tests.
Good win and a morale boost for the team and the players looking to make the starting XI. Two goals from Super Jonny Walters and a late Peter Crouch effort, although it could have been more save for the heroics of the Pompey keeper Paul Jones. Good to see Academy starlet and local lad Ollie Shenton get a run out, he’s only sixteen! Moses played well too and will surely make the bench, if not start against Man City on Saturday.

We have drawn Sunderland away in the next round, not a great draw for us.

Ryan Shotton has left the club to join Derby County on loan with a permanent deal to follow. Good luck to him, always gave his all and a versatile player who should do well at Derby.
Mark Hughes has recently said the club’s ins/outs have been concluded for this transfer window.


Bojan Krkic joins Stoke

Spanish international striker Bojan Krkic has joined Stoke City from Barcelona on four-year deal. What a great deal! Yes he may have lost his way but we like a player like that at Stoke. He joins his new team mates at the German training camp this week.

Now wonder if we will sign Assaidi? It did look a done deal but the latest rumours seem to suggest a stalling point has been over wages. One things for sure I think we will see a few departures, along with Wilson Palacios and Cameron Jerome, I’d say Charlie Adam, Ryan Shotton and Jamie Ness could all leave.

Tottenham 0-0 Stoke City

Posted in Football, Stoke City, Stoke City FC, The Premiership with tags , , , , , on December 22, 2012 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

A cracking away point with Ryan Shawcross and Begovic commanding the defence. Kenwyne Jones started again and nearly scored in the opening minutes, before making way in the second half to Cameron Jerome. Good to see Ryan Shotton play well again and thoughts & best wishes go out to Charlie Adam who missed today’s game on compassionate grounds as his dad passed away this week.

Still no firm news on Shawcross signing a new contract but we need to get him signing ASAP

Stoke have overhauled the backroom staff with John Rudge leaving at the end of the season and Sam Ellis has left the club this week.

Michael Tonge, currently on loan at Leeds Utd has been hinting he’d like to sign permanently for Leeds as his contract is up at Stoke in the summer.  No news as yet on whether Jermaine Pennant will extend his loan at Wolves past January.

Mama Sidibe goes on loan

Mama Sidibe has gone on loan to Sheff Weds on a month’s loan as the loan transfer window for Football League clubs closes today.

Ryan Shotton looks set to start against Fulham on Saturday at left back and possibly Michael Owen will make the subs bench. If not Edu or Ness will be on the bench instead.

Stoke City 1-0 Norwich

Another vital three points and good to see Etherington on the score sheet again. Dean Whitehead was on fine form and good to see Ryan Shotton getting a regular run out in the team

Next up Chelsea who could be managerless by the time we face them next weekend after they lost one nil at West Brom today…
