Stoke City 2-2 Bolton

Posted in Football, Stoke City, Stoke City FC with tags , , , on May 13, 2012 by The Rock 'N' Roll Oatcake

Two goals from Walters saw us snatch a draw on the last game of the season and the result relegated Bolton, despite QPR losing at Man City, who won their first title since 1968. The game also marked the likely farewell of Ricardo Fuller who is now out of contract plus plenty of summer transfer activity ahead with Danny Higginbotham likely to leave even though he has a year left on his contract.

Out of contract players for us are:

Fuller, Big Mama, Tom Soares, Andrew Davies, Danny Collins, Carlo Nash, Loius Moult, Jonathan Woodgate

Of these can only see maybe Nash, Woodgate and Fuller possibly staying on. Plus players like Diego Arismendi, Danny Higginbotham and Michael Tonge all have a year left on their contracts but look set to leave in the summer if they can find new clubs.

Finally I can see players like Jermaine Pennant, Kenwyne Jones and Cameron Jerome all possibly leavng due to lack of first team chances.

Not solid transfer rumours as yet bar Wolves Matthew Jarvis – a Pulis player if ever there was one!

Gillingham 1-3 Stoke City FA Cup 3rd Round

Although Gillingham took the lead goals from Walters (will he ever get rested by Pulis?), Jerome and Huth saw us progress to the fourth round. Tony Pulis got a standing ovation before the game from all four corners of the ground after his successful stint managing Gillingham back in the 1990’s. Fulham away for me so I can see the game 🙂

Pulis is keen to agree new contracts with Higginbotham, Whelan, Huth and Delap although no mention of Fuller who is out of contract in the summer.
