Stoke Relegation Thread

Swear not all that long ago the bog batterers were storming Coates' boardroom for some fisticuffs? 

Tony Pulis drags a historically 2nd tier club to a decade in the Prem + Europe (only to be heckled off the pitch and forced out the club after the fans get entitled and DEMAND good football) and the entire club falls apart without him. Hughes rode the wave for a few years, trusting the lads Pulis had brought in to run a tight ship, and then flogged them all for Berahino, Wimmer, and Imbulla.

Coates then goes on to prevaricate and make wrong decision after wrong decision ("I don't know what the fuss is all about"), lobbing money at managers to spend on past-it farmers in the hope they can sh*thouse promotion before the sweet nectar of parachute payments dries up.

Such a weird club. They showed more ire/action against Pulisball and its consistent mid-table finishes than they do at the architects of them being on the brink of League 1 despite earning more money in the last 3 years than most League 1 clubs do in 50. I'm not saying its all old man Coates but whoever is making the decisions there needs sacking, and Coates is the man with that power.

Ah well. The feeble attempts at COME ON STOKE come on stoke in a half-empty soulless lego ground next to an incinerator, miles out of town, as they battle to preserve their Championship status, provoking poor Bryn to more tearful breakdowns on the airwaves, will be enough to keep Scholesy boy and his merry men in the boardroom.

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

Great analysis of the demise of Sjoke. Hope no one in power reads it, hate to put them on the road to recovery. Onwards and downwards.

I like to think the grief and insults that Vale and just general non-Stoke fans gave them over their Pulisball tactics helped to turn the Herberts against their club and the man that made them.

Stokealona down to irrelevancy lads. No pride, no passion, no fight. Just the way the fans demanded it. Pulis out!

Was almost impressive the rate they went from plucky 'glad to be here, roughing up the big boys' club to 'we DEMAND better football, time for Pulis to go'.

Herded out the best manager in their history and within 5 years, despite all the money in the world, they're back to their natural level, scrapping for relevancy in the second tier with attendances rarely over 15,000 (despite what the scoreboard tells you).

They should have been on their hands and knees thanking the Lord for Tony Pulis, but instead it was boos from the Boothen and a slammed door.

I know every fanbase (including ours) is prone to entitlement, unrealistic ambitions, and 'my club is different to the other 91' rubbish, but the turn on Pulis because beating Wenger's Arsenal with ease twice a season wasn't aesthetically pleasing enough is up there with the biggest howlers a fanbase has had.

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 run into hundreds of pages don’t count so shut up. Schrödingers shlt fan. The peculiar phenomenon where shlt fans simultaneously don't think about but also incessantly, agonisingly, obsessively comment on the Vale. 

The quick selling out of 4500 tickets for a boycotted tinpot trophy that Vale fans missed never happened and nor did the subsequent drubbing on and off the pitch. It never happened, right? The Stoke goblin that lit himself on fire with a flare in his pocket at the match never existed, right?  

Aside from their INCREDIBLE fickleness there is one other personal attribute unique to shlt fans in the context of football. They HATE criticism or banter. HATE it. They dish it out and dish it out, page after page after page after page of abuse about Vale and Vale fans, but one single, solitary comment back and they lose their minds in incredulity. How dare someone be a meany about Stoke city. 

How DARE anyone criticise them in any way, the hissy fit it causes is instantaneous and reminiscent of deranged narcissism of a similar pathology to Donald. Martin Smith is so dangerously pretentious and arrogant that Cummings wants to hire him as an adviser. Smith was shaking with impotent rage to such an extent after that JPT match due to having to confront the reality that they’d lost that it was interfering with the background measurements at the Large Hadron Collider and triggered the ballistic missile early warning system in Nunavut leading to NORAD automatically generating firing solutions on Moscow and Blurton. 

Their players range between brilliant and unreal to useless <ovf censored> who they hope get cancer on a minute by minute and often second by second basis depending on if they win the challenge or header or not. The ‘bear pit’, so named because of the tendency of its inhabitants to live in cave mouths and survive off raw Berries, shriek with aggrievement at any mistake and have psychologically damaged Jack Butland to such an extent that his constant howlers this season are the result of Pavlovian conditioning where he panics every time the ball crosses the halfway line from anxiety of how many coins his own fans will throw at him during the half time walk to the tunnel. 

Coates ranges between sound and a fking useless senile old plrck depending on the time of day, atmospheric pressure and instantaneous exchange rate with the Romanian Lei. The protozoic unwashed urchins that patron the Stadio De Incínerátor lurch between ungratefulness for the hundreds of millions wasted by being thrown into the sinking rowboat, and crying about all out physically attacking the boardroom. Again. The way parents see ugly babies as beautiful or how paranoid schizophrenic patients see things that aren’t there, Stoke fans suffer from delusions of grandeur to such an extent that Public Health England had to declare a permanent major incident for Staffordshire.

They are hated nationwide. It is not because they are an effective side. It’s not jealously of success (lol). It’s for the reasons as stated above, other clubs recognise their fans for what they are too. They invented a rivalry with Arsenal on the basis of cheering when Lenny from Of Mice and Men they had playing centre half for them fractured Aaron Ramsay’s leg. They invented a rivalry with Man Utd on the basis of clinical delusion. Clearly Vale fans are very good judges of character as the rest of the country despise the scumbags - Have a little search for ‘Stoke relegation’ on twitter and bask in the communal shlthousery. Football needs Mark Porter to set up a supporters club link with Arsenal fans. PVFC-AFC stoke scum hatred partnership foundation.

The reality outside of the paranoid delusion that exists in all of their heads of being a ‘big’, well supported club worthy of place much higher up the pyramid and supported by legions of intelligentsia is a middle of the road Championship club about as interesting as a Reading or a Millwall, supported by gormless, mouth breathing amoeba-like cattle, shuffling around Hanley with their red and white tops perilously stretched over their porcine, bin-bag full of custard like bodies, grazing like my neighbour Arthurs dairy Cows from a Greggs paper bag, teeth like a witchdoctors necklace open-mouthedly chewing on the contents therein, on their weekly shuffle to the Job Centre to sign on before popping into Poundstretcher to spend Doha's redistributed income tax on value grain Vodka, frozen horseburgers and diabetes sweets for their feral offspring, who in turn are lined up for a promising future of alternative schooling behaviour units, picking unspent fag ends out of bins, sitting in Wetherspoons at 0800 in the morning sucking a split pint of Carling out of the carpet, and throwing roof tiles at pedestrians after clambering onto their neighbours roof after getting through a fivers worth of Monkey Dust by 0830.

I thought I hated the neighbours Doha, but you have elevated it to an art form.

If I could expand on the concept of the Schrödingers shlt fan, I think they exist in a juxtaposition of supporting their club or going off to support United. The wave packet collapses when they discover if they are staying up or not.

I can't abide them Joe , not quite Doha levels but I'm certainly a hater.

But in fairness with the Pulis thing they aren't the first and won't be the last fanbase to get ideas above their station.

Charlton were bored with Curbishley daring to flirt with the top 10 in the Premier League. Look how well that went. 

Middlesbrough because of the Juninho years often thought that they were entitled. They became a mundane premier League team . 

Also Bolton had enough of Big Sam, now obviously off the field issues have contributed to their downfall but again they got bored finishing 10th.

The European journey Lard went on for LOSING a cup final was stopped soon after , Hull and Villa both missed out on Europe for losing a Final. So it's always got my goat that they ' qualified' for the Europa League. It was only because City were already in the Champions league.

Basically the so called big six and maybe Everton. The rest are merely on loan to the Premiership , take a look at Bournemouth, well run club, much vaunted manager etc. 

Stoke are now paying the price for over inflated egos and over inflated wages and transfer fees. The failure money ( parachute ) soon runs out.

It's been a good laugh this season and they are still deluded enough to think they'll go up next season. 

Sadly Wycombe and Rotherham are going to be whipping boys but it still leaves one spot open.
