The people of Stoke-on-Trent

This season I have seen our following described as bellicose, raucous, and belligerent in the press. The volume of the racket we produce at home has been measured as the loudest in the Premier League, and now, last night, at the very end (ie the most rubbish game) on Match of the Day I saw Fulham manager Roy Hodgson declare that he could never remember a crowd who had so violently queried every call by the ref. It makes you proud :–)

    I thought the same thing, too, winger. Reminds me of the sign that Bill Shankly had put up at Liverpool and which the opposition had to read before they went onto the pitch. “This is Anfield.” The Brit is getting like the old Vic…the opposition just don’t like coming here. The press call it ‘whingeing’. We call it passion.

    Nowt like Stoke for a bit of class 😉

  4. I don’t suppose there’s any chance of Stoke donating 3 points to Blackburn at Ewood Park tomorrow? I mean it is the festive season after all. And the Rovers really do need them.
    Insider says that Rovers, Boro and Spurs are looking at Salzburg Red Bull striker Janko. He’s a promising boy. Be a good buy for somebody.
