Bardsley joins Burnley

Another day, another player leaving Stoke as Phil Bardsley joins Burnley for a fee of £750k, possibly rising to £1.5m. He will link up with fellow ex-Stoke player Jon Walters and possibly Shay Given, who Burnley may sign as their third choice keeper for the new season. Mark Hughes has been impressed with Tom Edwards in pre-season so far, hence allowing Bardsley to leave (although shame we couldn’t have let Glen Johnson go as he if off the pace and prone to injury)).

The club’s strategy of having fewer senior players and allowing more youngsters to play in the first team seems to be gathering pace. Just hope we do sign a few players with experience, notably in defence and another forward as we are lacking goal scoring power – not an easy thing to find unless a club is willing to spend silly amounts of money.

Stoke lost 2-1 at Sheff Utd last night in their latest pre-season friendly with Xherdan Shaqiri scoring Stoke’s goal.

Man City 3-0 Stoke City + Higginbotham leaves

Oh dear not a great performance and we have still yet to scire a goal at Man City’s ground since returning to the Premiership four years ago.

Danny Higginbotham has left on a free tarnsfer to Sheff Utd who have signed him until the summer with a view to extended the deal. He has been a great player for the club but he wants regular football and the last time he played for us was back in December 2011. Good luck to him.

Next up Crystal Palace in the FA Cup 3rd round…
