Don't worry if bera  dared to score against us we would score more,because were better than them and we will beat them,they're still in the shadow of Pulis and have a young Pulis as manager

I'll be perfectly honest here.

I've never wholly understood the fuss surrounding Mr Rowett's managerial talents.

He was doing OK at Birmingham with limited resources. It is now clear that he had them punching above their weight. However, his subsequent record speaks for itself. For me it is interesting to note that Derby didn't put up much of a fight to keep him. Very very average.

Rowett has surprised me, he had Burton challenging for promotion for 3 years straight, he took blues from relegation candidates to play off contenders and he kept Derby in the play offs. He had things to prove at Stoke as he needed to show he was more than just a good organiser, but so far he is failing.

Could be that his tactics are suited to keeping a team away from danger, but not good enough to pick up the required wins to get promotions. I'm hoping that is the case, as it seems Stoke haven't addressed some squad issues in the transfer window despite spending millions on players who hsve done well in the division before.

They will still be a threat and I have no doubt they will be in the play off battle, but unless something drastic changes, they will struggle to be title contenders.

I said it before the start of the season and reiterate it now, these are in serious trouble. If they don't beat Hull on Saturday it will become a full blown crisis. They are more likely to go down than win promotion imo.

Didn't watch the game personally but according to co commentator radio reports and comments posted online he had a decent game.

When he was taken off the Stokies started chanting 'you don't know what you're doing' to Rowett as they thought Afobe should have come off instead.

oh I wasn't suggesting it was an inaccurate observation by them, just that things are definitely going wrong if Saido is your best performer.

I'm probably not supposed to raise a subject on another forum but if you want a good old chuckle go and see what the Stoke fans are saying about JM on the Oatcake, its priceless  ;D

7 pages of it with a few Baggies making comments stirring. Hilarious !!

Already been there- to say they dont like him is an understatement.

Oatcake is a constant source of amusement these day.......completely unregulated as well. I have to say I am impressed with some of their avatars though.

Might yet be an own goal... Defender kicked it in.

He has been playing well so far this season. Going to be hard for him to go from no goals in 2 years to 20 goal a season striker, but I said pre season that he could click as he has the ability, especially at this level.

He is one to watch at the weekend. Really hope we can keep him out.

I think Mr McLean will be up for it as well,
last league game scored
last night hit the bar which Saido followed up on,
sounds like he could be making a little impress !ion
