Happy days for Mighty Potters

Spurs 0-1 Stoke City. It don’t happen too often. That was the first win at WHL since 1975, and only the second in history. Glenn Whelan, who always looks like someone dragged him out of bed half an hour ago to make him play when he didn’t even want to because he felt a bit poorly, curled it into the top corner from a Ricardo Fuller run, cut inside and lay-off. Come on, give it up for Supertone all you doubters.

  1. Quote 1: “They played them off the park on their own ground” Garth Crooks on BBC WORLD TV SPORT.
    The message went round the planet from Delhi to Rio and back. I caught it on the Hungarian border.
    Quote2: “Stoke are definitely up to stay” somebody said.
    Quote3: “The end of 34 years of pain;” somebody else said.
    That’s life. That’s football.

    Swiss rang me as soon as the game had ended. He was there with young Sam and TTB. All I heard was the Stoke fans belting out a huge ‘Delilah’. Just spoken to Philip. He said you hadn’t gone because you expected us to lose big time so stick your “give it up for Supertone” up your arse. :)

    GGOS.

    Well done today boys!

    Goooarn pulis! ;)

    Quote from Big Sam: I tell them to go out and do one thing and then they seem to forget all about it.

    I think someone might get a thump.

  5. Stephen Foster says:

    I’m reet chuffed for them little lads. They’ll never forget this day.

    ‘Just spoken to Philip. He said you hadn’t gone because you expected us to lose big time’

    I think he might of slightly misinterpreted that: if that was a reason for not going I’d not of gone to many a game whereas the facts of the matter are that I was most usually there. :–)

  6. Stephen Foster says:

    Not so fast Rhodesy. If Supertone was any good he’d have started with the Turk on the pitch & we’d have not only won we’d have increased our goal difference too. ;)

  7. Rhodesy says:

    Ahhh but tuncay wouldn’t have had the athleticism to clear Crouch’s header off the line would he!

    Pulis thinks of everything you see! ;)

  8. OS. says:

    You’ll have to wotch out, winger. This boy is as sharp as his daddy. Nice one young Rhodesy. ;)

    Pulis out!

    OS.

  9. Stephen Foster says:

    With Tuncay on the pitch spreading panic into the fluttering heart of the Spurs defence, I don’t think Crouch would ever have been in the position to be heading the ball Rhodesy.

  10. Rhodesy says:

    It’s not time for Tuncay to start yet I don’t think. Why do we even need him?

    We are going to save him for the big games I think just seems a bit needless to use him when we could do better with Beattie and his heading abilities in my opinion. Let’s face it we haven’t made the transition into Tuncay’s style of play yet!

    For now let’s just play long ball punt it up to Beattie and put Fuller through!

  11. Rhodesy says:

    Diao did touch the ball by the way ;)

    Another supertone way of getting the best out of his players. Would you have started Diao the past few weeks winger?

    Doubt it goooarn tone ;)

    And people wonder how Hitler managed to get such a devoted youth!

  13. AndyP says:

    I was away in Italy and only managed to see the result after what I expected to be a certain defeat. I read on the BBC it was an undeserved “smash and grab” with Spurs ruing all their missed chances. Any truth in the matter? Sound more like Pulis Luck rather than Pulis Design. ;-)

  14. Rhodesy says:

    Is Hitler really comparable to supertone? :D

  15. Rhodesy says:

    It was a well “planned” smash and grab ;)

  16. Stephen Foster says:

    We were excellent, rode our luck, and finished the Spuds off with a strike of pure class. Am saving up for a Whelan 6 shirt & am going to wear it to watch the Irish Republic at Stade de France.

  17. Daftburger says:

    No he was loved by all of the people! ;-)

  18. Rhodesy says:

    Dad saved up for a stoke training top with tp on the front and a bseball cap he’s buying it on saturday :D

  19. sean evans says:

    cmon you boys in green!

  20. Stephen Foster says:

    Couldn’t get a ticket Sean – I went in the ballot and had a reply from the FAI a few days ago: they had an allocation of 8,000 tickets but they also had 17,000 applications. Will be watching it on telly of course.
