Following a win the last time out against struggling Middlesborough the Potters travelled to Eithad Stadium full of confidence, and we left…full of confidence.
Well, another point secured away in Manchester, and not conceding 4 goals again, let’s see how you all reacted to this…
Well, there we are, another season, and more failures to beat a side managed by Tony Pulis. Everyone had so much hope before the game, day dreaming of a Berahino winner, in front of the away fans, letting Pulis know exactly what talent he had let go. Alas, it wasn’t to be and the capped one walked away with another three points from us.
I’m sure this one went down well on Twitter…
It was a record breaking night at the bet365 stadium for our 6ft7 striker, Peter Crouch, who last night joined an elite list of players to score 100 Premier League goals, solidifying himself in Premier League history. Plus, for all you Crouch enthusiasts out there you can look forward to watching all 100 goals on Sky Sports 1, every other day midweek. However, you’ll only see the infamous robot once, as last night was the first time he had used it in the Premier League.
It was also a night of controversy, with an Everton goal that was first disallowed, then given, after much badgering from the Everton players (you can tell they signed Schneiderlin from Man United…) We also got a first glimpse of our new £12 million pound man Saido Berahino. Let’s see how Twitter reacted to the events that unfolded at the bet365.
Stoke fans tapping their phone screens this evening will be doing so with the taste of disappointment in their mouth, after Wayne Rooney, scoring his 250th goal for Manchester United snatched a point in the Man United of old fashion. However, it is a result and performance for new signing that will please Saido Berahino who was unveiled to the crowd before the game today.
It was one of those results where you walk away feeling like you’ve just been hammered. Let’s gauge the reaction.
14/01/2017 – A day that will go down in the history books. Stoke City, finally got a Premier League win at the Stadium of light, having only picked up a possible 2 out of 24 previously.
Let’s take a look into how the tweeters of Stoke City reacted to the match.
The club have today announced that the 6ft7 striker Peter Crouch has signed a new deal at the club, extending his stay until at least the summer of 2018.
The target man splits opinions between Stoke fans, so lets see how the news went down with the fans.
Here we are fresh off a, quite frankly, embarrassing 0-2 home defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers, let’s see how this went down in the Twitter world.
The afternoon for most Stoke fans doesn’t start at 3pm, when Crouch rolls the ball from the centre spot, for one of his few completed passes of the afternoon. Oh no, it all begins at bang on 2pm, where hopes of seeing, Bojan, Arnautovic and Shaqiri all playing together once more are usually dashed.
However, this time, Mark Hughes didn’t crush our dreams this week, this is how some of the fans reacted at 2pm this afternoon.
The words thousands of Stokie’s had on their lips this afternoon “Would love a cup run!” Well, Well…
However, there’s always one who tries to dampen the spirits.
However, TBPTV owner took the chance to have a sly dig at Mark Hughes’ comments from yesterday.
So, we have Bojan, Shaqiri and Arnautovic all starting infront of Imbula and Afellay, easy win and onto the next round then? Well, this is Stoke, and you should all know by now that we never make life easy for ourselves…
Just to make this even worse for you all, Wolves weren’t even at full strength.
So half time rolled around, and that had Stoke fans thinking of how this could possibly get any worse, if it could. Well, this is Mark Hughes were talking about, it always gets worse.
Many of us now thinking that was the last time we’d ever see our beloved Catalan in our famous red and white.
Or do you agree with this one punter and believe it was “superb management”
Oh boy, I can see you scoring free kicks and it’s driving me crazy. Too much? Yeah I agree probably is, but here we are again looking back at how the ‘twittersphere’ reacted to another 2-0 win.
The day began slowly and goals were hard to come by for all teams in the Premier League, but when Shaqiri whacked home his first most were in agreement that it was worth the wait.
Finally a win! And what better way to relieve a win than a review of, a somewhat Joe Allen dominated, Stoke Twitter.
The day could not have started better as the main man himself stopped for a photo with the hottest piece of Stoke memorabilia.
Under Mark Hughes our transfer deadline days have been an uneventful date on the football calendar with very little action other than wrapping up deals that had dragged out over the whole window. But this year we treated to the sheer mayhem, crisis briefing, red button pressing, Pulis-esque last minute deal bonanza. Before I start to look at how this went down on twitter, I’m going to start with sad note of Philipp Wollscheid’s and Joselu’s departures on loan, we’re only covering positive news tonight so, much like Mark Hughes first XI, these two will not feature; good luck in the future lads!
The day began with hope and trepidation as fans and pundits alike waited for news to begin to break.
