Very poor start by Stoke, 2nd bottom as it stands. Would love it if these got relegated, but can't see it somehow.

I think there is every chance of it.

Odds on Pulis to go back and save them from relegation?

I can’t see them going down, but Nathan Jones could be the next managerial casualty. Stokes next league fixtures are Leeds (h)  Birmingham (a) Bristol (h) Brentford (a).

Lose the next two and he will be gone in the international break I reckon.

They need to get going soon. They have signed so many players in the last 2 years and on paper have one of the strongest squads in the league, yet successive managers haven't been able to get them to click.

Fancy Leeds to beat them, and after that you wonder how long Jones will have left.

Another big loss for them last night. Wonder how much longer Jones will get.

Butland had a shocker of a game, 2 absolute clangers.

Stoke are generally quite patient and the performances are better than the results would suggest but how long will that wash? My guess is that he will get until 2nd international break which is roughly 11 games into the season. I don't think Stoke would be happy to write off the season without at least a stab at a play-off place.

I have been on Oatcake today as I like to cheer myself up occasionally. Quite a few wanting Pulis back, and an equal amount very much against.

He would probably keep them up, and for good measure come back here and beat us 1-0 with a header from a set piece.  :(

I'd be shocked if they kept faith with him for that long is they are still in the relegation zone. I wouldn't be that shocked to see him sacked this weekend if they lose at home to Leeds. Chairmen get panicky very easily, especially with the money they spent last season.

I don't care how desperate it got down The Albion, I still would never have him back.

With you on that one, and I was all for him when he was appointed... never again, ever.

The thing is with Stoke is that he got them into the Premier League and Europe, as well as doing rather well in the FA cup. Something that they have never come close to since, so to some he is still highly thought of.........I can see it happening to be honest and you can guarantee he will sort them out and they will do a number on us.... :(

I was wondering that myself! Do you think they're still that desperate on the Oatcake...?  ;D

He’ll be sacked after the weekend

Shame we don't play them until early November. He'll be gone by then.

But I'm just hoping 'you know who' won't turn up in his place............

I think he will get the Spanish now.

Oatcake is quite amusing this morning.

Most have come to the conclusion that the third coming is required...……..

Saw his post match conference last night - looked very much like a resignation speech.

I personally hope he remains until after we've played them.

I'd wee myself silly if they appointed that clown Pardew.
