Twitter Reacts: Middlesbrough 1-1 Stoke

We are finally back. After another summer of English disappointment and Stoke anonymity the Premier League rolled into town. So could Stoke secure their first 3 points of the season or would we fall to yet another opening day defeat? The day began on a positive non-match day related note with the results of Jack Butland’s scan coming through.

And the boys were wished luck on their long trip up North by the greatest of heroes.

The squad selection was announced and unfortunately a certain Egyptian was missing from the matchday squad, which went down a treat with our African contingent.

The programme produced by Middlesbrough was not up to a very high standard.

The match began and before the excitement of another new season had dispersed, fantasy football favourite, Alvaro Negredo dampened the Potters’ spirits

Despair, dejection and downright depression would be the best way to describe Twitters reaction to Boro opening the scoring.

It would appear that our new Egyptian fans don’t seem to have the clubs best interests at heart.

But, most Stokies are used to this disappointment and tried to smile through the pain.

The game ticked over to half time, and the second half began. But it was certainly not up to the quick and ferocious start of the first, with this being the main highlight of the first 10 minutes.

All the anger and frustration that had been built up during the first 60 minutes was released.

The stats showed that a set piece goal like this had been a long time coming.

And how could you ignore the little Swiss man’s signature celebration.

Imbula also had a highlight…

Little else occurred during the game as it finished 1-1, and funnily enough no players have tweeted about today’s game. But before you go here is one final thought to take from today’s game.

So now we move on to Man City next weekend. One request Stokies; more GIF’s lots more GIF’s, not enough for today’s game so lets have some more for next weekend.
