The Stoke City Topic Thread: Relegation? Staying up? Manager? Empty seats

Just wondered if anyone else had seen the highly amusing poll in the Sjokinel asking Stoke supporters about their prospects for next season. It reads summat like this:


Top dogs, title there for the taking 38%


Second place, automatic promotion a dead cert 18%


Playoffs best we can hope for 27%


Midtable consolidation 13%


The unthinkable, another relegation battle 4%


So, 56% think that they're definitely on their way at the first time of asking while in total 83% think they'll finish in the top six one way or another. I know you have to be positive but that takes optimism to a new level.


My advice: talk to Leeds, Forest, Derby, Hull, Middlesborough or Sunderland fans, or even Villa, a much bigger club than Stoke who will now be spending a third season in the second tier. Only 25% of clubs manage to get back at the first time of asking, and more than a third of teams relegated from the premier have yet to get back at all.





I don’t really care double edged sword really. Enjoyed match of the day last season seeing joke loose week in week out.

Will have to stay up later until the football league show
