      I would agree with that but where do we find someone like that when we are trying to spend money on striking options?
      I wish I knew bud but this is getting painful.We may as well play every other game these days.

      Absolutely woeful. Everyone. Not a single decent player on the pitch today. Too much to drink yesterday??

      Glad I spent some time playing football with my own son while that game was on, so the time I wasted watching was reduced a little.

      Like I said Walton he and the owners are playing the long game. Sure he would like to win every match, I am sure he hates to lose, but he is going to do it his way; he is not going to drastically change what he does players will have to adapt or get shipped out.

      Nobody wants to say it or believe it but BR & FSG are looking at next year and 3 years from now etc.....etc. Brendan's and the owners idea on how they want to do this constitutes a breaking down of the entire squad and rebuilding it, plans like that do not take 30 matches.

      Short term inconsistency for better future results is what I see them doing.

      Not saying I agree with it, but I can see it plain as day.

      Does this mean dropping into the Championship if necessary ?

      Shelvey is so poor when he should have passed to Sterling but he made the difficut pass into the box. That's the difference between what we have against the std of the Agueros.

      The only positive i can take after that is that Webb was very fair and had a good game.

      Only the best in England can tame Stoke at the Britannia. We are far from the best team in England. It's no excuse and I honestly would have come out of this match happy with a draw but being beat this comfortably by any team is always horrid. The day we can play Stoke and beat them at the Britannia is the season we can become a comfortably top 4 team in the Premier League again, more so one of the best. But that's no reason to sweep this result under the carpet. It's every reason to step back and see with much clearer vision at what we NEED to do and improve upon with brutal honesty. The most irritating fact about tonight is that we could play this game 10 times over again with the same squad and we'd still lose. Yet again a horrible and unpleasant reminder of how much harder we must work.

      Now, there's a depressing dose of reality which I cannot help but agree with.

      Alright attacking-wise poor defensively. Disappointed with how we conceded the goals (A slip, and twice losing our man) but glad we don't have to play them again. I thought Suarez and Downing did well.

      10th place. Expect better than that, hope these lads can get their head's together and start playing together consistently as UNIT.

      Maybe it could be the Management?.

      You can only blame the platters for so much.

      This will be the forth season in a row seeing these types of performances under 4 different managers.

      Some need to take a good f**king look in the mirror.

      I can forgive being outplayed but I can't forgive a lack of fight or bottle.

      Thats so frustrating! Stoke had us in their pocket all day long, one dimensional football won today and a lot of hard graft! We showed no heart and as bad as stoke are we still couldnt even threaten goal! Hard to watch! Hope BR doesnt come out and say we played well.... Passing, movement, aggression  and a bit of heart were all absent and we paid the price!

      Disgruntled!!!!

      We need a commanding figure like Sami in the side we havent got that now.

      We have Coates Kk used him last year to great effect in this fixture

      That was genuinely sh*te. Nothing more or less than a shocker from us. Although hopefully we can keep up form and batter QPR.

      but they can we have seen it but they didnt seem to fancy it today and maybe it was a case of scoring too early in a game that made Stoke up their game.Its just a head scratching session these days.

      The players we have are just not comfortable in this system.

      Change the system to one they are comfortable in and see results and consistency improve.

      We are currently a mid table team and have been for 3 and a half seasons now.

      The sad thing about today's result is that there is a real chance the same thing will happen again v QPR at the weekend.

      Do you see that happening? because I don't.

      The players we have at our disposal are 5-8 finish to be honest...I am not fussed either way because to me finishing 5th is the same as finishing 8th.

      Talking about going down to the Championship after this loss is about as knee jerk as saying we were top 4 after Saturday's fixture.
