Stoke Relegation Thread


Recommended Posts

Stoke really are the gift that keeps on giving !

Reports suggest that our charming neighbours are interested in appointing German Markus Weinzierl as their new manager ! 

The 44 year old sowed the seeds of Stuggart’s Bundesliga relegation  before being shown the door after a fine Stokesque record of 4 wins in 23 games ! 

They couldn’t pull another agent out of the hat could they ?

Apparently just announced the the crowd over the tannoy 25,308 🤣🤣🤣

Interestingly I was sat next to the Stoke official who works out their home attendances, he hadn't gone to QPR so called in to watch us today. I asked him what he thought the crowd was this afternoon?

They are the most fragile supporters in club football. The weakest chinned, the most fickle, the most bluntly demanding. They don’t care about us at all and the multiple anti Vale threads that ru

What's absolutely delicious is its clear that Stoke is being run in a shambolic fashion these days; considering the mess the Shanahan's inherited, and the money getting lobbed at Stoke in the form of parachute payments, we're probably (relatively) a better run club at the present.

Even Vale fans could see that Jones was on the ropes over a month ago; the fact it's taken so long to sack him, and its done on a Friday after he took training all week (because Coates Jnr was on holiday), and they had no replacement lined up, and they've been done for illegally tapping up Neil, and Pulis won't even go back, and they're sniffing around certified frauds like Jose Gomes and Weinzierl (who Vale fans would probably turn their noses up at), suggest that no one has a clue how to run that football club, and haven't done since Peter took a back seat and incompetent John took the reins.

Every week you've got an ex-player spouting off about the club on the airwaves; Lawrence, Johnson, Adam, Crouch off the top of my head.

They've got big, big FFP issues coming up, which manifested themselves in a bargain basement summer, picking up QPR's freebies, League 1 players, and lads who were struggling for a game for Wigan. They had a manager on a pittance and are looking to do the same again, because they know come the end of 20/21 season they are £30m in trouble.

Their transfer policy is uncoordinated, changes with every manager, and seems to be, in Stoke on Trent tradition, quantity of quality. They've got frauds like Allen, Butland, and Martins Indi on mammoth contracts for Championship level; Wimmer is still on the books, on loan in the Belgian league; Imbulla is still on the books, on loan at Lecce. Both of these lads cost a lot and will be on massive wages.

Thankfully, the Stoke fans are too thick to realise that the manager is merely a sympton of a club that hasn't been run right for a few seasons now. They keep turning against their manager; Pulis wasn't sexy enough, Hughes lost the dressing room, Lambert is a League 1 manager, Rowett's football was 'sh**', Jones was in a job 'too big for him' (a reminder the club too big for Nathan Jones has won one more trophy than us in their history, the 1972 Ronseal Invitiational, in the days when players would have a pre-match pint and ciggie).

One day, they'll realise the problems run deeper and they'll probably then turn on the directors. Until then, I look forward to welcoming the next poor sod who will be lambasted 4 games in as the club simply being too gargantuan, too historic for a mere mortal to be able to handle, with its sublime record in the Leasing.Com Vase and its previous iterations.

Its stunning how many Stoke fans I know have made excuses this season and 'don't go anymore'; literally two seasons out of the big time and the stadium is half empty.

I feel dirty for wanting West Brom to win tonight. This is a game where you wish they could both lose.

Have to say, the potential manager list for Sjoke reads like a who’s who of imbeciles. Whoever has been training the next agent has been working overtime to cover off every single one.
