Quit the carping about Potters
AND so to another season of premiership football at the Britannia with, hopefully, plenty of thrills and spills along the way.
One thing is guaranteed, however, and that is the constant criticism from our very own merchants of doom Statler and Waldorf (Messrs B W Johnson, of Brereton, and A J Gleave, of Trentham).
Okay, Mr Johnson, you will never forgive Tony Pulis for getting Stoke City in to the Premier League playing an industrial but effective brand of football and you feel Mr Coates should have consulted you on the choice of manager.
So well up on your chosen subject are you that you can't even see that Ricardo Fuller is a spent force, never prolific in the Premiership with Mr Pulis always having to balance flashes of brilliance against that sulking, petulant persona.

Ric was increasingly and evidently no longer worth the hassle. Good luck with following Ricardo around. I doubt you will seelittle more than cameo appearances. Ricardo was on his last legs and as such was used as an impact player. Criticism for selling 'Tuncay, another crowd favourite' is laughable. What has Tuncay done since leaving Stoke? Nothing. I was glad to see the back of him.
Mr Gleave, too, can't see the wood for the trees, banging on about Stoke's exit from a fading, irrelevant cup competition. I could not raise the interest to attend this dying cup's midweek game against Swindon, and was not perturbed at Stoke's exit. Perhaps, Mr Gleave, there is a bigger picture? I would advise these two, and any other doom merchants, to buy that big Stoke City beach towel from the club shop to wipe off copious amounts of egg from their faces at the end of this campaign when Stoke City get that top half finish in some style. Mr Johnson should get his hearing checked too, I heard no 'dissent and complaints about the manager' at the Arsenal game, more a disappointed groan at a fixture we have come to expect so much passion from.
